Welcome to C H Render

The story so far...

Our journey began 50 years ago in a small village called Warthill, about six miles from the centre of York. A local man called Clive Render had the opportunity to buy our current building from what was back then owned by the National Railways. The site was used for storing and loading goods on to the trains and used by the railway for many years previously.

The history of the site can still be seen today in our workshop with the original walls of the loading bays still in situe. Once the site was acquired, Clive was keen to start works adapting the building to house his small team and the business was born as we know it today "C H Render Car Sales and Servicing"

The business thrived for many years and provided the local community and surrounding areas with garage services. The business has provided expertise, value for money and traded on a no-nonsense belief that people could trust. The business starting to grow very quickly, and the team were handpicked for their knowledge and skill to ensure the values of the business were upheld to ensure consistency and quality for the customer experience.

Over the years the business has diversified to meet customer demand and now sells a wide variety of vehicles, from 4X4, vans as well as quality used cars. Catering for a range of budgets, everything from a small run-around to a large commercial vehicle. We also offer a personal service where we can source a specific vehicle to meet the individuals needs.

Our business continues to thrive in the modern world taking the same level of pride in every purchase and sale based on the same values Clive had all those years ago. With the customer at the forefront of every decision.
