Our History

Founded in 1964 as one tractor dealership in Carlisle, the Lloyd Group has now grown to have over 35 sites across the North of England and South of Scotland for Lloyd Ltd and Lloyd Motor Group.

For over 50 years Lloyd Ltd has been specialists in agricultural, construction, materials-handling and groundcare machinery, with more recent additions of domestic lawncare equipment and equestrian supplies, while, since 1976, Lloyd Motor Group has represented leading automotive manufacturers for car sales, servicing and repairs.

Lloyd Motor Group continues to grow, with dealerships covering Cumbria, Lancashire, Tyne & Wear, The Borders and Dumfries & Galloway, orbiting our Carlisle-based Head Office. Representing leading manufacturers in BMW, MINI, Honda, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo, as well as Honda and BMW motorcycles, requires us to offer the highest standards of customer care and technical expertise, for which we have an outstanding reputation. From new and used car sales to aftersales and bodyshop vehicle repairs, we cover every aspect of vehicle ownership and put the customer at the forefront of everything we do.
