Alexanders Horseboxes was founded in 2005 by Alexander Brimelow. Already a partner in the sister business Alexanders Prestige with long term friend Andrew North, both were very experienced in the high-end motor trade and had brought their exacting standards together in Alexanders Prestige which has now grown into one of the most respected dealerships for pre-owned and new Land Rover, Ferrari, Bentley, Lamborghini, and Porsches (to name a few) in the country. It was with those standards and expectations that Alex set out to buy a horsebox for his show jumper wife only to find that he was not getting the attention, the customer service, or the product that he felt a purchase of this scale should deserve. This was further compounded when the box that they eventually bought privately turned out to be very unsatisfactory, with one frightening episode ending in the vehicle being driven home and never used again. Seeing a gap in the market Alex set about establishing Alexanders Horseboxes with a strong focus on customer service, product quality and in particular safety for both horse and rider. The business took off immediately and in 2008 a new purpose built 22,000 square foot dealership was opened for the businesses to share.
The dealership in Boroughbridge, North Yorkshire houses the entire range of Alexanders Horseboxes for you to view in comfort inside a bespoke heated showroom, while our outdoor lot contains a variety of pre-owned and larger examples. This modern and unprecedented dealership also features a full-service centre and in house aftercare centre incorporating a state of the art workshop and body repair facility manned by an ever-growing team of highly skilled and trained technicians. Alexanders have always firmly believed that customer service is paramount and that exceeding customer expectations whilst offering exceptional value for money is the key to running a successful business. We are proud to be recognised as Ackrill Media`s Medium Size Company of the Year 2007, and Ackrill Media`s Best Small Company of the Year for 2011, the Motor Codes Garage of the Year Regional Winners for 2015 and 2016 and last year’s Specialist Used Car Dealer. With Alex, himself winning Ackrill Medias Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2008 and Inside Medias 42 under 42 in 2016. Alexanders is still expanding and continually seeking to raise the bar in the horsebox industry, the Lehel by Alexanders range has revitalised and reintroduced the legendary marque back into the UK market with the care, attention, and gusto that it deserves, to an overwhelming reaction. With Alexanders now recognised worldwide, having supplied vehicles on far flung continents, we are even more so committed and passionate about the animals and sport that provides the foundations for our business and we hope that you will see that as you navigate your way through our website or visit our showroom.
There is more to Alexanders than horseboxes. With our recent move, this has made more room for Alexanders Prestige to expand their already extensive range of pre-owned and new Land Rover, Ferrari, Bentley, Lamborghini and Porsches (to name a few) in their huge showroom. The Alexanders Group also includes Ripon-based Harvey Cooper Cars, which sells premium used vehicles.
