Land Rover Services was originally established in 1975 by Barry Thornton. Barry started in the motor trade in 1966 as an apprentice motor mechanic, fixing his Dad’s Land Rover by the age of 19. After spending 4 years working for the local Land Rover dealer, he decided to start his own business and Land Rover Services was born!
Barry’s son, Mark Thornton, inherited his Dad’s passion and enthusiasm for Land Rovers, so much so, after completing his apprenticeship he joined the family business in 1993. Mark worked with his Dad for 24 years learning the trade and business. In Dec 2018 Barry retired and Mark and his wife jointly took over the running of the business, and Land Rover Services Hull Ltd was born! Barry is enjoying his well-earned retirement.
