Meet our new Parts Sales Representative, Dave Pratt.

Dave brings a wealth of experience with him to Lloyd Jaguar Land Rover York and we are delighted he has joined our expanding Parts Department and look forward to building relationships with new and existing Trade customers in York and surrounding areas.
Let’s find out a little bit about what makes Dave tick…….

How long have you been in the motor industry?

More years than I care to admit to. I started work in the motor trade on 4th April 1972 as a trainee parts adviser for Polar Motor Company, York. I was promoted to sales representative in 1980 and continued in that role until I retired on 25th October 2021. That makes almost 50 years in the trade...scary where the time has gone!

What do you most love about your job?

Meeting and speaking with people both customers and colleagues alike. Over the years I have built a long and lasting relationship with many of my customers, many of whom have become firm friends. I also love the variety of the job; no two days are the same.

What do you like about working for Lloyd Motor Group?

Everyone has made me feel so welcome. I’m fortunate to work alongside friendly, professional and supportive colleagues who all strive to deliver an excellent customer service. As a sales representative I cannot do my job properly without a great team behind me. 

What is the best advice you have been given?

I was always brought up to ‘Treat others how you would want to be treated’. I think this has stood me in good stead throughout my life.

Favourite pub, cafe or restaurant in York?

This is a hard one as there are so many good pubs and restaurants in York. The Hop serves a cracking pint of Yorkshire Blonde and definitely the Sylheti Lounge for an Indian curry.

Early riser or enjoy a lie-in?

Definitely an early riser. On my days off I can frequently be found out early on the golf course.

What was the first piece of music you ever bought?

Crikey not sure I can remember that far back......probably Cracklin’ Rosie by Neil Diamond.


With Lloyd Jaguar Land Rover York now an official Trade Parts Hub and with 3 parts vans on the road all day, every day - we can deliver any genuine part, for any job.
