History of Bartley

Bartley Independent BMW Specialists was founded in 1997 by Dermot Dromey, who wanted to provide a personal, effective and affordable option for the repair and maintenance of BMWs. Dermot, supported by the Bartley team, believes that value for money is just as important as providing a premium service to all clients.

Shortly after Bartley began trading, approval as a full member of the Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMIF) was gained. Since 1997, Bartley has expanded greatly, particularly over the past 15 years, and now benefits from an experienced, busy team. In August 2008, Bartley became one of the founder members of the Motor Ombudsman (previously the Motor Industry Code of Practice for Service and Repair). In January 2017, having been approached by Which? in 2016, Bartley was endorsed as a Which? Trusted Trader, something that 1 in 4 businesses who apply, do not achieve!

Looking after a BMW can be a complex business, the team at Bartley are able to work on any model of BMW and BMW Mini. Bartley has two fully equipped workshops, featuring all the latest BMW diagnostic tools which allows the technicians to work with over 30,000 components that the average BMW consists of. The BMW qualified senior technicians each have over 30 years experience working with all models and ages of BMWs, both at dealerships and independently. The Bartley team have a very impressive list of qualifications and have achieved almost countless BMW approved technical training certificates. Please ask if you would like to see any of the certificates.

The friendly team are always ready to share their expert knowledge. All new parts and all labour are covered by a 12 month warranty.
