Pre-Sure Ltd is managed and run by Simon and Jennie, both of whom are passionate about growing and expanding the business to new heights in the coming years. To understand more about the company, the following information highlights the journey of both owners and how they achieved their current success.
I first starting working in the motor trade when employed by Sandicliffe Ford to carry out vehicle washing in their forecourt. Six months after moving into the position of Valeting Supervisor, I decided I could start my own valeting business.
I ran this business for six years, working for various garages in the Boston area including VW, Audi, Suzuki, Ford, Vauxhall and several other second-hand dealers as well as many private customers.
I was then headhunted by one of my long-term customers, to fill the position of Valeting Manager for VW and Audi. I happily worked for them for another 5 years before being asked to work as a salesman in the chemical supply industry for Autosmart, supplying the motor trade and transport industries.
One year into this sales job, I was named the “National Salesman Of The Year” before being promoted to the position of Lincolnshire Area Manager. Working closely with rest of the management team, we placed the franchise to the top in the country within one year!
From there, I began looking for more of a challenge, something to achieve for myself. I spoke to a good friend and customer of mine and went into partnership with him to grow the business he had already begun, Pre-Sure Ltd.
After working hard together for 6 years and growing the company 3-fold, myself and partner Jennie purchased the company for our friend Chris Webster in 2016.
We are now working with our loyal and committed customers to grow our business into one of the most experienced and professional fleet cleaning, commercial repair and end of lease repair company in the county, supplying various leading commercial dealerships and transportation companies nationwide.
I started valeting cars as a Saturday job at the age of 14 for Hartwell Ford in Scunthorpe.
When I left school, I worked full time at the same garage until I was about 16, before being offered a new job in Lincoln, valeting for Jaguar / Rover. From there, I moved to Boston to work for various second-hand car dealerships, until I was headhunted by Simon for the job at Stanwell VW and Audi.
At that time, I was the only female valeted in Boston which was something I was quite proud of! It was nice to hear that my hard work, professionalism and knowledge of the job was noticed by other valeting companies in the area.
I continued to work at Stanwell’s until I had my first son in 2005, and then concentrated on being a mum for a couple of years. My partner Simon was working for Autosmart at that time, and one of his customers was Pre-Sure, run by Chris Webster.
Chris offered me a job, which first consisted of me washing out on site before then moving on to the valeting side of things.
I worked for Chris for a couple of years until I fell pregnant with my second son, but I always came back as I loved the job so much.
When Simon joined us, we all continued to progress the business and watched it grow to where it is today. In October 2016, myself and Simon took the business on as our own and are continuing to glow and prosper to this day!
