  • About Albany Motors
  • Albany Motors is a family business that was formed some 40 years ago by John Shorney. Formerly known as Chandos Motors and based in Chandos Street in Leamington Spa, the business moved to John's home town of Earlsdon, Coventry in 1976.
  • Trading was set up alongside petrol sales in the new premises. However, by 1991, loss-leading fuel sales by supermarkets led to removal of the petrol pumps, making way for a welcome increase in space for vehicle stock.
  • In 2003 the decision was made to change the business name to be more in line with its present location on Albany Road, Earlsdon, Coventry - and so Albany Motors was born. In 2005 John retired, handing over the business to his son, David, and daughter, Catherina.
  • David is supported by Jack of all trades Bruce, who is based in the showroom. Bruce has been at the garage since he was 16, some 35 years ago, and can turn his hand to anything from selling, to cleaning, to fixing that faulty window.
  • Also supporting David, and the most recent addition to the team, is David's son Richard. Working only on a part-time basis, Richard takes credit for updating the website and photographing the cars, as well as doing plenty of market research, so that only the most select cars are bought.
  • In the Workshop is Longie, the mechanic, who returned to work for the garage in 2006, having taken a break after his first 10 year stint. Longie is responsible for servicing, maintenance and any warranty work the cars may need.
  • The team would not be complete without Boris, the resident French Bulldog, whose responsibilities include meeting, greeting and warding off any trespassing dog.
  • Albany Motors pride themselves on providing affordable, low mileage, quality cars that are chosen for genuine condition, service history and great value. It is this careful selection process and their approachable, helpful manner that have earned Albany Motors regular repeat custom and a reputation to be proud of !
  • Testimonials
  • I've known Albany Motors for 20 plus years and dealt with them on several occasions and so have members of my family. We have always had a fair deal and have found they have a good class of car, which is competitively priced. Albany Motors is a good reputable family business where the staff are always honest and courteous.
    Mr Banks, Coventry
  • The first car that I purchased from Albany Motors was over 30 years ago and since then I have purchased 7 other cars for myself and 4 others for my family. I have always been impressed with the quality and competitive prices that Albany offers. During the same period my cars have been maintained by Albany who still look after my current car, which is a Rover 75. I even bought my petrol from Albany until competition from supermarkets made them discontinue this service. All those involved in the Business have been very efficient and very courteous and I am very happy to recommend them to anybody.
    Mr Alexander, Kenilworth
  • Having bought 4 cars from Chandos/Albany over a number of years, I have always been impressed with the courteous service of all the staff. They look after any servicing and MOT's which makes things a lot easier for me. I am always happy to recommend Albany to family and friends on a regular basis.
    Mr P Johnson, Coventry
  • I've purchased four used cars from Albany Motors over the years and kept each for three or four years. The only problem I've ever had with any of the cars was a flat battery with one of them, which is a remarkable testament to their condition and reliability. My first car from Albany Motors was a 1996 2 door 8 valve Rover 214 - I last saw this being driven around in 2009 still shiny and white. My next two cars were four door - a 2001 1.8 Ford Focus and then a 2004 1.6 Ford Focus. My latest car is a new shape 4 door 1.4 Ford Fiesta which had extremely low mileage - four years old and under 10,000 miles. I've had all my servicing done by Albany Motors because I can trust them to only do work that is actually needed.
