About Guildford Tyres Co.
Guildford Tyre Company is a family owned and run business, established since 1968. It has been owned by Charles Sunderland since 1977 and is now owned and run by the Sunderland family. Charles son Matthew and his daughter Emily have now taken over the daily running of this independent tyre and autocare chain.
Our first site was in Markenfield Road, Guildford and since those early days we have grown to encompass five retail car sites, a specialist motorcycle site as well as two distribution centres all located in Surrey and West Sussex. We have always specialised in tyres, however over recent years in response to changing markets and needs, Guildford Tyres & Autocare has developed into a full vehicle maintenance facility for cars, vans and motorcycles.
Our Guildford branch moved to Woodbridge Meadows in 2010, our Cranleigh branch opened in 1986, followed by Gatwick in 2001. Ash Vale opened 2017 and our newest site in Billingshurst opened in 2021. All sites have full mechanical and MOT testing facilities. Our purpose-built motorcycle site in Chilworth, just outside Guildford, offers a full range of mechanical services and Class II MOT testing. Since opening our first motorcycle-only branch at Slyfield Green, Guildford back in 1998, we have become Surrey’s premier motorcycle tyre supplier. Having built our new site in Chilworth in 2003, we have developed a unique atmosphere of an independent motorcycle service centre. Knowing that bike enthusiasts desire the very best in customer service.
We have developed into a regional wholesaler of tyres since the late 1980’s. We offer a full multiple same day delivery service. Our aim is to offer a service that is unsurpassed and to be competitive against the national wholesalers. Service and reputation have always be of paramount importance to us. Our reputation for both retail and trade has been built on the fact that we are passionate about what we do and how we deliver it.
