Standish Service Station Limited was founded in 1958. Known as Delph Service Station with ESSO petrol on sale, it was situated on Preston Road, Standish and had just one lubrication bay.
The petrol station and lubrication bay became increasingly busy, due to the dedication of both my mother and father. As the garage continued to prosper, additions were made.
My father had one of the first automatic car washes to be installed in the area and also an ESSO accessories shop was added. In 1970 the premises were purchased from ESSO Petroleum Company so the business could follow its own direction.
The business has steadily grown over the years, incorporating new ideas and changing with technology and the flexibility of what our customers require.
We underwent a refurbishment in 1997 and also gained ISO9002 accreditation. This involved adding 5 workshop bays and modern reception and office areas.
Since then we have decided to move, and after a long process a decision was made. On September 18th 2009, Standish Service Station Ltd moved to a brand new facility located within the Bradley Hall Trading Estate, Standish.
The new facility, which is an impressive 6500 sq ft, has been designed from scratch and has had input from the entire workforce enabling us to maximise space and ease of working.
We have a new comfortable reception area for our customers with hot and cold drinks and snack facilities where they can wait while one of our trained technicians takes care of their vehicle.
Within the new premises we have a large M.O.T lane catering for class 4, 5 & 7 vehicles. We also have a new dedicated vehicle lift specially designed and installed to cater for large motor homes including 6 wheel versions.
We are very proud of our new premises and although our old site on Preston Road has been our home for over 50 years, we feel that our new home will impress customers old and new for some time to come!
