Malcolm Waite Ltd started life as Harnet Motor Carriage operating out of what is still our head office and new car showroom, Harnet House in Sandwich. Founded by Malcolm Waite, in 1976, on the premises of supplying high quality used cars with exceptional customer service the business soon became popular. Wanting to ensure all used cars supplied were of a highest quality Malcolm purchased the Old Delf Coachworks to provide paint shop facilities only seven months after he set up the business. That was in 1976 and to this day our focus on used car preparation is as high as ever and is something we have built a reputation for.

Things have moved on since then, The Old Coachworks has now been converted into housing and our paint shop and vehicle preparation centre is now located at Market Hall on Moat Sole. The business grew to take on a Ford and Lancia Franchise as well as a petrol station/service centre and a used car site all in Sandwich.

In July 1979 the business was incorporated as Malcolm Waite Ltd with Malcolm Waite appointed as Managing Director and Colin Waite (Malcolm’s brother) appointed as Technical Director. In 1993 Malcolm Waite Ltd expanded out of Sandwich into Deal to 9 Park Avenue where it still operates today as a Ford Franchise.

As a family owned and operated business Malcolm Waite Ltd was happy to have Aynsley Waite (Malcolm’s son) and Chris Waite (Colin’s son) join the business in 2013. The business now focuses on the sale of highly prepared used car, new Ford cars and the maintenance of vehicles through our service centres. We still believe in delivering exceptional customer service and this is has been core to our business since day one. So if you value service and expertise as highly as we do then please come and see us to find out how we can help.
