BHRV was originally founded in 1985 by its current M.D, who had been involved in the motor trade from the tender age of 11, through his father’s franchised dealership. At 18 he decided to go it alone and started selling commercial vehicles, but it was purely by accident when 5 refrigerated Transit vans came into stock and he realised there was a strong demand for them, that the refrigerated vehicle business was born.
Originally quality second-hand refrigerated fridge and freezer vans where hunted down the length and breadth of the country, soon becoming apparent of the shortage of low mileage used vehicles in refrigerated spec. To create stock, a third party was contracted to convert used vehicles, eventually leading to a number of employees being taken on to carry out the fridge conversions and experienced engineers to fit the fridge equipment ourselves.
After getting married, his wife became involved, running the day to day functions of the office and accounts and as time has progressed, their 3 sons have all begun to enter the business, making it a truly family affair.
We believe that customer satisfaction combined with a quality product is the key to a successful business and thirty years and over 5000 vehicles later, is a testament to our commitment to this statement.
