About Startin Group

We would like to welcome you to ‘Startin Group’

With a strong and enviable reputation within our locality there are many reasons to choose the Startin Group of Companies to supply and maintain your next car.

Our mission is to deliver the best Franchise Dealer experience within our local areas of influence through great customer service, continuous improvement and a performance culture, in turn being a great business to be a part of for a sustainable future.

"We are proud to have been serving our community since 1840. Our passion for cars and the mechanics behind them has helped us shine through in these unsure times. We are always here to help however big or small the problem. We pride ourselves in the customer experience we deliver. We don't want to sell you a car we want to help you find your next vehicle."

Long before the advent of the motor car the original Thomas Startin set up his business as a coach builder in 1840. Thomas Startin Jnr Ltd was owned by the Startin family up until 1987 when the Directors who had been with the company since 1949 organised the purchase from the last living member of the Startin family. The acquisition took place to ensure the future continuity of this long-established business which now trades as Startin Group of Companies.

From our humble beginnings in Birmingham, we slowly migrated south. Redditch, Worcestershire, is home to our head office where we have Peugeot, Suzuki, and KIA and Vauxhall. In Worcester City we have our Honda, Dacia, Renault, Peugeot, and Suzuki franchises, just down the road we also have our Škoda dealership on Malvern Road in Powick.

We recently acquired a Vauxhall dealership in the popular Park Farm Industrial Estate, Redditch. In the late 90s Vauxhall was part of Startin Group so we were very excited to return to the brand.

We are excited to recently announce that Startin Kia Warwick will be the new name for Kia in the Warwickshire/South Coventry area. Kia Warwick was formally Lime Garages and is now relocated to our new site at the Former BMW on Heathcote Lane, Warwick, CV34 6SP.
