The Rathfarnham man has worked hard to make LPD the success it is today. He bounced back from a serious work accident to set up the business four years ago on the Old Bawn Road. “I started with just €3,000 and literally worked day and night to get it off the ground. Through word of mouth, the customers started coming and we gradually got ourselves established.Troy Stokes came on board sales manger with me and we now have 10 staff. The plan is to expand further in the coming years,” Paul explains.
The opening of the new Eurohaul Centre on the Greenhills Road last April was another milestone in the dealer’s relatively short history. Dedicated to commercial vehicle sales and servicing, the Centre stocks a large range of vans and small trucks. “Most of what we have in stock is below 7.5 tonnes, but we can source bigger vehicles if required. Our vans, box bodies and tippers are proving popular with tradesmen, hauliers and distribution companies alike.”
All of LPD’s cars and commercials are sourced from main dealers in Ireland. Paul only buys in vehicles that have been fully inspected and history checked. There are over 300 vehicles in stock at any one time which can be viewed and test driven. If, in the unlikely event the vehicle you require isn’t in stock, the LPD team will be happy to source it for you. “We’re here to provide you with a quality vehicle and the best motoring advice. We will gladly assist you with all of your motoring needs. Unlike other dealers who source their vehicles in the UK, we source ours in Ireland which gives our customers added peace of mind. We stand over everything we sell.”
LPD can also offer you a range of finance options to assist in the purchase of your vehicle. Rates are competitive and flexible. In addition, the dealer recently opened a new state-of-the-art service
department which is equipped to service or repair any vehicle. Starting from €89, servicing includes a free car wash. Valeting prices range from €40 to €79. A 24/7 vehicle recovery service is also provided to customers in the greater Dublin area.
Opening hours are from 9am to 5.30pm Monday-Friday and from 9am to 2pm on Saturdays. With new stock arriving daily at both premises, why not call in for a view or test drive. You won’t be disappointed!
Paul concludes by thanking his customers for their support: “We have got unbelievable support over the last four years and I want to take this opportunity to thank anyone who has dealt with us. We have become one of the largest dealerships in our area thanks to their support. We are here for the long haul and are committed to offering a huge range of quality approved cars and commercials. We have something to suit every need and taste when it comes to quality used vehicles.”
