Customer Service Excellence

Vanstones – An Independent Dealer offering a range of Quality New and Used Vehicles, Servicing and Repairs, Accident Repairs, MOT, Parts and Accessories, and Recovery Service for Launceston and surrounding areas.

Established in 1985 by Leon Vanstone, we were part of the Dealer Network for MG Rover and are Land Rover specialists. Expanding premises by adding a showroom, bodyshop and larger workshops enabled us to offer a wide range of services. After the collapse of the MG Rover group in 2005, XPART took over supply of parts and we were approved as a XPART Autoservice Centre.

In 2010 Leon Vanstone and Sons moved into larger premises and were able to expand services to include class 4,5L and 7 MOT testing.

In 2011 a new, purpose built Accident Repair Centre, including a paint booth enabling refinishing of large light commercial vehicles, was constructed.
In 2012 we joined the RAC Network of Approved Garages.We also subscribed to the Motor Industry Code Of Practice For Service And Repair, giving our customers added peace of mind.

In 2013 we became a member of the new ServiceSure Autocentre Network. Allowing us to offer our customers a National Warranty and a real cost effective alternative to the manufacture networks.

We were listed on the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) new Professional Register.
