About the employer

After the war Dinnages re-opened as a Ford Dealer, and soon needed to expand and develop to cope with the demands of a growing business. In January 1956 we were awarded Ford Main Dealer status and the foundation were laid for a flourishing business. At our Haywards Heath branch we are a Renault Authorised Repairer. With our joint service reception and separate Renault workshop, Dinnages is the ideal spot for servicing, maintenance, MOT’s and bodyshop repairs
