Drayton Motors Kia is a long standing family run dealer group operating in Boston, Grantham, Louth and Scunthorpe Lincolnshire. The family ethos is a core value to us and we strive to be the best in customer service. Scroll down to read more about our award-winning customer service. Managing Director Darren Bradford has driven & overseen the growth of the business since coming under new ownership from previous long standing owner, John Wright in February 2013. In February 2018 we took a huge step by opening our second Kia dealership in Louth, Lincolnshire. This has also been a great success and won the Kia Customer Experience Award in its first eligible year. In February 2021 Drayton Motors acquired the Victor Wood site, based in Grantham, which has gone from strength to strength and become an integral part of our business. At the start of August 2022, we expanded our group once again, becoming proud representatives for Kia in Scunthorpe, with our brand new showroom on Mannaberg Way. As a group we are one of the UK's largest suppliers of Kia Approved Used Cars which are hand selected by Kia and undergo a full inspection before being made available exclusively to the Kia dealer network. Despite being a used car and up to 20 months old, they benefit from a renewed full 7 year warranty. With specialists in sales to Small Business, Large Fleet, Motability as well as Parts (Retail and Wholesale) and manufacturer trained technicians for all service and repair work, we are confident we have what is needed to welcome you to the Drayton Motors family.
