I launched the business in September 2018, originally as Rex Leasing. At that point we were a leasing broker based in a small office in Victoria Street. As time went on, more and more people wanted to buy from Rex, as well as lease, and as a result I rebranded the business in March 2020 to Rex Motor Company. We now operate from a sizeable Showroom in White Hoe Industrial estate.
I wanted to improve upon our current website, with a real focus on video and moving images. I knew such a project would be expensive, so I got help through the Enterprise Support Scheme and obtained a grant to help with a portion of the cost of the new site.
Very straight forward, both quick and efficient.
The best part of the business is meeting lots of new people, and giving those people the service they deserve. I love going to Tesco or to town and bumping into Rex Customers, or seeing Rex Cars driving around the Island. It’s a really great feeling.
This where I was raised and have worked all of my life. There is no other place in the world I would want to start a business or raise my family.
Free time, what's that? Outside of work I am a family man. I have a loving fiancé Katie and two kids, Connie and Jasper, when I am not working you will find me at home playing football with Jasper or out running.
It was actually Andy at Dot Performance who told me about the scheme. Dot Performance designed and built the site and were very helpful.
Absolutely. It’s a no brainer. The scheme is a fantastic opportunity for local businesses to improve upon their infrastructure or undertake a project that will help grow the business.
The Business Improvement Scheme offers 50% funding up to £5,000 towards the cost of business improvement projects in the disciplines of website creation and website development, alongside many others. Find out more about the Scheme here.
