Startin Group - Temporary closure for the first time since the war!

27 March 2020

Startin Group Closure.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation Startin Group has followed the government advice and closed it's doors for the first time since the second world war. 

Currently we have committed to being closed for the first two weeks of April. This of course will change in line with  government advice. 

Startin group has been a family owned business since 1840.  We've been through tough times with the country and our customers before, and we'll obviously be back in business just as soon as it is safe to do so.

This time we have the significant development of the internet available. So you can visit our website, search our New and Approved Used cars and contact us via our contact forms for any number of enquiries. 

Whilst we are closed, a few key members will be checking the email / web enquiries and answer phone messages daily and endeavour to answer any questions or queries so please be patient.  We recommend using our contact forms during this period.


Startin Honda Worcester will keep any of its customers who are NHS Key Workers on the road, should they experience a vehicle fault during these difficult times. While their car is out-of-use, Startin Group will provide NHS workers with a courtesy car or a demonstrator vehicle so they can keep moving and continue working in their vital role. These cars are sanitised, taxed, insured and ready to go.

Tim Freeman, Managing Director at Startin Group, explained: “Even though we are closing our business for the first time since the Second World War, I personally, along with my fellow board members will remain on hand each day to answer the phone to NHS key workers who need our help. If any of our customers working in the NHS have their car off the road and need transport to continue their crucial work, they should know we are here to help. We hugely appreciate them and will do what we can to assist. As a long standing local business we want to show our support to our community.”

For more information, please click here where there is a section specifically for NHS Key Workers.

Startin Group would like other car garages to follow our lead. The local motor industry can work together and we can make a difference.

If you would like to help our NHS, please head to and donate to help fund the front line at this critical time.
