A car servicing and repairs business in Lubenham has expanded its services by adding a new piece of equipment recently.

NJ Potter Ltd is based at Unit 5, Holmes Farm, in Foxton Road, Lubenham.

Owner Nick Potter, who employs two staff, said: “We are expanding slowly and investing in the future, and have recently fitted a new four-post lift.”

But Mr Potter explained that it can sometimes be hard to drum up awareness due to its rural location.

He said: “We have no passing trade, so I am keen to spread the word in the Harborough area about what we do.

“We offer a free collection and delivery service within 10 miles, are competitively priced and are very professional in our approach.”

The company also carries out MOTs and engine management diagnostics, and can service and repair light commercial vehicles,

It can deal with problems to brakes, clutches, exhausts, batteries, tyres and air conditioning. It also deals with small bodywork repairs and can provide a free courtesy car to customers.

His firm is also one of several in the Harborough auto sector which is supporting the Give a Child A Break campaign run by Parkers,which is nationally trying to raise £90,000 for the When You Wish Upon a Star charity by asking customers to donate unwanted brake pads.

The roots of Mr Potter’s business go back more than 25 years. Formerly known as LJ Morris Motor Engineer, Mr Potter fulfilled a long-time ambition of owning his own garage business when he took over the firm in January 2012 following the proprietor’s retirement after 33 years in the trade.
