SMC was founded by Shaun Marnell in 1998 with the establishment of Sandridge Motor Company on the Wirral, it was from this venture that SMC began to emerge as a noteable hire and body repair centre, and the superior quality of services offered, quickly led to a significant base of satisfied customers.
By 2000, SMC was firmly established as a body repair centre and it was at this point when we were approached by a private hire driver, who, unable to put a vehicle on the road himself, enquired about hiring a vehicle from SMC, happy to help, SMC assisted the driver and this initial partnership worked well paving the way for a fast growing portfolio of satisfied settle drivers.
Through working in partnership with taxi drivers, SMC became aware of the lack of services and support available to drivers in the event of a non fault accident. Realising the problems that drivers faced, SMC set about correcting the situation, offering an all encompassing service which gave rise to the current aspects of SMC today:
