About Somerford Mini
Somerford Mini Limited was established in 1990 by Peter Hines, a Mini enthusiast. It was a very modest begining - just Peter, a tool box and £2000 savings. The company has been very successful and now boasts a huge Spares Department alongside the original restoration business. Manned by restorers with a deep passion for (and vast knowledge and experience of) the Mini, our workshop enjoys a reputation as one of the country's leading Mini restoration centres. With the Spares and Restoration Departments together as a team, we have the full blessing of MG Rover through being a British Motor Heritage Approved Specialist. We are justifiably proud of this accolade.
The Spares side of the business started in 1994 and has grown at an incredible rate. We now stock over 7500 lines, with more being added all the time. We cater for all Minis, from 1959 to the end of production in 2000, these include all parts needed to carry out a full restoration, including very specialised body panels which are not otherwise widely available. Other stock ranges from service items right the way through to accessories, performance parts and all the latest gizmos to dress up your Mini.
Somerford Mini Limited is still a small enough company to guarantee a personal service, a very important consideration. Unlike many of our competitors, we can offer proper advice before you make a purchase. We know from our own workshop experience what works and what doesn't, so if you're not sure about something please ask - the chances are we can help. Our workshop is also able to fit any part we sell, if you so choose. We take a pride in being totally honest with our customers and not making false promises (tales of which you hear only too often with some mail order companies).
