Young Motors, Ambleside – Ben’s Business of the Month

Because I’m proud of business, I’ll be doing a monthly article celebrating one that’s local to me. If I don’t stand up for business in South Lakes, who will? This month’s is Young Motors.



Young Motors has been a landmark in Ambleside my whole life and some! Trading as Young Motors since 1978 the business was run until 2008 by Robin Young at which time it was bought out by local men Dave Hastie and Andrew Brumbley.


Dave had been a mechanic at Youngs since 2003 and has been a petrol head his whole life, owning many performance cars. This gives him a wider knowledge base than most mechanics and has led the garage to provide some tuning options to public along with the daily business of MOT’s, services and repairs.

Both Dave and Andrew grew up in my home town of Windermere. And its great to see local people running a local business, providing a service that we need employing even more local people!


Mechanics is a hard profession and something I don’t envy doing after the limited work I’ve done on my own car. But its something that continues to capture the imagination of people as the grow up and Young’s are proud to be able to facilitate that by bringing in and training more people to the profession under their expert supervision.


Something I keep hearing about Young Motors is that they do an excellent job for a fair price. That’s exactly what I look for in a garage and I’m sure ill keep using them in the future.


They do over 1400 MOT tests every year and thousands and thousands of services along with fixing everything from a nail in a tire to a blown turbo. Next time you need a mechanic make sure you consider them at:
