Edgar Smith, the great grandfather of Halifax Motor Company’s current Director, commenced business as a cycle trader in 1895 in New Bank, Halifax.

Moving later into Broad Street he was the first trader in Halifax to cater for the Motor Trade. In 1903 Edgar opened what was then considered to be the largest garage for miles around at the corner of Weymouth Street and Northgate. In 1908 he built a motor car, the “County Car”, which still survives today and is pictured below. In 1911 Edgar formed Halifax Motor Company Ltd and in 1914 the company was granted one of the very earliest Ford franchises in the UK.

Edgar brought his sons Sidney, George and Oswald and daughters Florence and Hilda into the business and from humble origins in Weymouth Street, Halifax the firm moved to much grander premises at Skircoat Road, Halifax in the early 1920s.

After the second world war the company took on the Truck franchise for Ford and specialist Commercial vehicle premises were built at Church Street, Halifax and the 2 joint MD’s of the business, Derek and Geoffrey, grandsons of the founder, saw the business expand dramatically through the 1950?s and ’60s. The 50th anniversary of the Ford franchise in Halifax was celebrated in grand style at the Skircoat Road showrooms in 1964 with a guest appearance by the then current F1 World Champion, Jim Clark. A new purpose built Accident & Repair Centre was opened in 1963 at Springfield Works, West Vale, Halifax and a Used Car forecourt was opened at South Parade, Halifax in the late 1960s.

1971 saw the business merge with Bradshaws Motor House, a family owned Ford Main Dealership in Preston to form the Halshaw Group and then in 1978 merged with PJ Evans, a Birmingham based business holding Austin Rover, Jaguar and Rolls Royce franchises to form the Evans Halshaw Group.

Colin Smith, the current MD of Halifax Motor Co Ltd, joined the company from Ford Motor Company in 1981 as General Parts & Service Manager and then in 1986 succeeded his father, Derek, as the 4th generation Smith to be Dealer Principal of a Halifax Ford Dealership.The Halifax Ford Dealership then changed its name in 1987 to Evans Halshaw (Halifax) Ltd but Halifax Motor Co Ltd was reformed in 1992 by Colin who took over the Ford Retail Dealer franchise in Ilkley and traded under the name of Ross Bros Ilkley. After 5 years of successful trading a combination of Ford’s changing policy towards Retail Dealers and serious disruption to the business caused by Yorkshire Water, the difficult decision to close the business was taken by the the Smith family, who formed the Board of Directors at the time.

After 15 years as a dormant Company in 2013, the present Directors, Colin and Linda Smith, were delighted to reform Halifax Motor Co Ltd trading under the name of UK Prestige Car Brokers with offices in Halifax and Wilmslow. We look forward to sourcing any make of car, from a Ford to a Ferrari, to and from the Motor Trade for friends, customers from the past and of course new customers in the future.

Testimonials

Martin Haigh

It had got to that time when my car had covered over 70,000 miles and, despite regular servicing, things had started to go wrong on the vehicle. I, therefore, decided to change my car. I was talking to Colin Smith at a MYCC networking meeting and mentioned that I was interested in a car change. He called me back that day and agreed a date to come and take a look at my current car. Not only that, he photographed the vehicle and checked my service history and other documents so he could provide a credible overview to his dealer network. We then started to discuss my new car options and I had my eye on a few models. Colin gave me some pointers and guided me towards the ‘sweet-spot’ in the model range of various manufacturers. I went to various car dealerships and tried a few cars before making my decision. I ran this past Colin and, whilst he agreed with my choice, he advised me on one or two minor changes to enhance the vehicle. Once the specification was settled Colin got in touch with a number of his new car dealers and found the vehicle I needed at the optimum price. On the morning of the day of exchange, Colin came to our offices along with the dealer buying my existing vehicle. The dealer sorted out the paperwork, paid the agreed price and took the car away. Colin then drove me to the dealership where my new car was waiting and stayed with me during the one-hour handover process – which incidentally was a great experience. Colin Smith not only knows all about cars he is extremely passionate and professional in the way he handles the customer buying/selling experience. If you are looking to change your car, and want to be made to feel really special, then I highly recommend the use of Colin’s services, UK Prestige Car Brokers.

I can highly recommend Colin if you are looking to buy or sell a car. Colin has a network of trusted dealers who will either make bids on your vehicle or source you a new one. Colin came to see my 2017 Audi S3 on Monday and by Wednesday he had secured me a sale which was 10% higher than most of the other offers I had from the usual online cowboys. The cash was in the bank by Thursday. He also secured me a brand new personal lease vehicle, again beating every other deal on the market. Colin doesn’t charge his clients a fee, so it’s all totally risk free. Colin is an absolute pleasure to do business with, in what is often a murky world - and a thoroughly nice bloke too!!

I tried various vehicle leasing companies who could not source the vehicle I wanted within the time scale. I spoke with Colin who found me a vehicle within 1 hr and 10 mins and at a competitive price - enough said !!!! Top guy ?

Colin sold my Porsche for me recently and I can’t recommend him highly enough. He got me significantly more than the best offer I had received previously and it was all wrapped up on the day. Buying or selling, you won’t be disappointed.

Franchise Consultant

Karen Goode

Colin takes all the hassle out of buying a new car. From finding the best buyer for your old car, to seeking out your best options for your new one, Colin will sort all that out for you. Buying a new car always took hours of research and listening to sales people at garages. With Colin, you can say what you need and he'll do all the hard work for you. Everything is clearly explained, paper work is sorted out and you don't need to listen to endless sales talk. I highly recommend using Colin if you want to take the headache out of the car buying process.

Top quality service by Colin. Went above and beyond to get me my Merc for a great price!! Would definitely recommend and it doesn’t cost you a penny either! No brainer!

First class service, very professional, efficient and friendly. Found exactly the right new car for me and helped me dispose of my old car at a better price than I was offered as a trade in. Thoroughly recommended.

Brilliant to work with from start to finish, from choosing what kind of car / deal your looking for, finding it for you and then helping you on the actual day of collection. Even helping sell / exchange any other cars you need to move beforehand. Wouldn't hesitate to call and ask for advice.

General Manager at Crystal Bar

Ruth Richards

When it came time to change my car, I knew I wanted Colin the "Car Angel" to help me again. He made the process so easy for me the first time he helped, and I knew I didn’t have the time to deal with everything so I contacted Colin. The whole process of selling my old car and getting my knew one was even easier than last time. All I had to do was turn up at the right place at the right time to drop the old car off and Colin took me to pick up the new one. It is more than just the time Colin saves me, but also dealing with the sales people at the dealerships, not something I would be confident with. Colin’s knowledge and experience is invaluable and I will be back to see him in a couple of years when I change my car again. If you need help with your next car, I can highly recommend Colin.

After writing my car off over Christmas, I was left without no transport and dreaded sorting out a new replacement during the Christmas period. Previously I had found the whole car buying service extremely painful, as a female dealing with unhelpful car salesmen. After a brief call to Colin with my dilemma and car requirements, he was able to source the right car at the right price within 24 hours.... impressive! This was coupled with the most enjoyable customer service I had ever experienced buying a new car. Following a week in the sun, I arrived back to pick up my shiny new car, personally handed over to me by Colin himself. If you are thinking about a new car, don't even bother trying to find one yourself, contact Colin and enjoy your new wheels!

There is no other way to buy a car than to call Colin Smith. Having had my fingers burnt with dealers previously I was reticent to sort out my car... one call to Colin and I was reassured inspired and even excited I’d say about the prospect of a new car and freedom from the current pcp plan that wasn’t working for me. He absolutely knows his stuff. He’ll make sure you choose the right car for your needs and get you on the right finance solution too, he even sources the car and gives you the VIP treatment whether you’re buying a ford or a Ferrari, it’s happy clients that matter. I’ll never buy without Colin ever again!

I had been considering swapping my old vehicle for new when a friend recommended I speak with Colin. Long story short, there was a car I had been admiring for a while but struggling to justify its purchase. Frankly, the deal Colin secured for me was so good I couldn't possibly have turned it down. Colin was meticulous, ensuring no stone was unturned from the point of initial discussions through to collection. Furthermore, the service provided by Colin's associates was also exemplary. The whole process was quick and hassle free and the deal was remarkable. It is without hesitation I would recommend engaging Colin to help you source your next car.

I would highly recommend Colin's friendly, professional services to anyone looking to buy a car. His years of experience and trade contacts make obtaining the right car at the best price effortless. A no pressure conversation at home or convenient place to meet and everything is arranged for you. No need to trawl the net, trail round car dealers or barter at dealerships. We have recently used his services twice within the family and have already recommended to others.

For the first time in my life sourcing a new car has been an enjoyable experience - and that's all due to Colin Smith from Yorkshire Prestige Car Brokers. He listened to what we were looking for, found it quickly and helped sort out all the paperwork. He even managed to get us more than we were expecting for the car we traded in. Excellent service and I can't recommend Colin enough.

Colin recently helped me to sell a Mercedes, within 1 week he had given great advice to me and my wife, had a number of dealers interested in it, came out to the house to discuss all the finer details and view the car and take photo's and then secured a really good price. Colin and his team were excellent, a swift, honest and efficient service and we can't thank him enough. Thanks Colin!

Colin has provided fantastic service in procuring a brand new car in just over one week. In this time, Colin negotiated a keen purchase price and an excellent trade in value for my current car. From identifying a car on a Friday, within 6 working days, I was driving the brand new car away from the dealership on Monday. You cannot ask for better service.

Dom Husband

I'd highly recommend the services of Yorkshire Prestige Car Brokers, fast, efficient and reliable. Fantastic service from Colin, two weeks from initial consultation to signing for our new car including achieving a very good price for our trade in whilst getting the right new car for the right price. Thanks again.

Tanya Haigh

I wanted a new car for over a year, but due to being so busy with my travel business I did not have a spare minute to think about it, never mind go looking at different options ! Thankfully I met Colin, he was so patient when I was overseas a lot, and got on with preparing "many" various options for me (all were at the best price possible too) Yesterday my new car was delivered to the office - perfect specification, price and lease agreement, all supervised by Colin ..... I have still not been near a garage - don't need to, he takes care of everything !! I will have no hesitation using Colin for my next car, and have already recommended him to many people. Absolutely first class service on every element so far. Tanya

Nick Cassidy

Stop right there. Don't even waste your time looking for your new car. Get on with your day job, or go and do something far more interesting and enjoyable instead!!! This man is truly brilliant when it comes to looking for a new car. Not only does he take all the hassle out, he finds you the exact car you're looking for, at the right price and on the best terms. He's the fourth generation of his family to be in the car business and he's cracking on a bit himself (although can still give me a run for my money!). But seriously, this gentleman (Colin Smith has bought a number of prestigious cars for me recently) and he truly is the best in the business. He's very professional, thorough, honest, reliable and a really nice guy to get on with too. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him.

Having decided that I needed a new Jaguar, I was fortunate to meet Colin at a networking meeting. As I hate buying new cars and running around dealers, and negotiating price, I was delighted to engage Colin to act on my behalf. I have just completed the purchase and Colin’s service and expertise was superb. Nothing was too much trouble. I will be recommending Colin to client and friends

I recently purchased a new car through Halifax Motor Co with Colin's assistance. Not only did I save money on the deal, but I received a highly professional service with exceptional attention to detail and very quick responses to my numerous (!) questions. I would have no hesitation in recommending Colin to other potential clients

Ruth Richards

Colin is the 'car angel'. If you dislike dealing with the sales guys in the showrooms, do not have time to sort out the test drives or need help choosing your next car, you must talk to Colin. Colin is warm, friendly, knowledgeable and gets stuff done. He took the hassle out of the car buying process, got to know me and what I wanted and helped me get it. My new car is fantastic and so is Colin!

I have recently used Colin Smith @ Prestige Cars when looking to purchase a new car. As i was looking for a BMW i found the help and advice that Colin gave to me invaluable. He was extremely professional and managed to secure me a great deal on the car i was actually looking for. I found that Colin listened to what i wanted and was able to take his knowledge and skills to be able to search for the correct car for my needs as i was struggling. Given that Colin has many close contacts with the main dealers he was able to secure me a fantastic deal and it meant i was able to take away the pushy salesman approach of the showroom. I am a very happy customer and intend to refer Colin to all of my family, friends & business contacts

The Price Guarantee offered by Colin exactly what it promises and is one than can be trusted. All my dealings with Colin have been of both a helpful and professional nature.

Mike Webb

Just a note to thank you for all your assistance in finding the perfect vehicle for me so quickly. It made quite a change from my previous tortuous car buying experiences in that all I had to do was agree which vehicle I would like, turn up, pay for it and drive it away, leaving its predecessor with the seller. Couldn't have been a smoother process. Many thanks.

Mike Webb Partner, Eaton Smith Solicitors, Huddersfield

Nichola Marsh

I met Colin at some local networking events and found him very approachable. So when my husband and I wanted to get a car on lease, rather than going to a local dealership, it seemed a far better option to approach Colin rather than an "unknown" sales person. I found the service that we received from Colin to be first class. He obviously has extensive knowledge of the car industry and many contacts within the trade across different car manufacturers. His communication both via email and telephone was always very prompt and he kept us in the loop at every stage from sourcing the vehicle to delivery. On the day of delivery, which was only a couple of weeks after our initial conversation with Colin he arrived just before the delivery and then stayed with us for a good hour to thoroughly explain all of the features of our new car. I would definitely recommend Colin and his company to anyone wishing to either purchase or lease a car and feel that he is genuinely passionate about getting his customers the best deal and the right car for them.
