LNK Motors have signed up with two very different finance companies and are in the position to offer all of their customers the very best option, this includes the lowest rates possible and pay as you go payment plans for customers with poor credit history.

They have recently attended an Autotrader Masterclass to ensure they are following the very best practice and are constantly developing. LNK Motors are delighted that they were part of Autotrader's presentation for the structure LNK Motors have as a business. Following the FCA guidelines for complaint procedures in order to comply with Consumer Credit Licence. 

After some serious research, they are confident that there is/are no other used car dealerships that offer the package of give-aways that they advertising with on their vehicles. LNK Motors take pride in the services they offer and when customers are purchasing a vehicle, they ensure the customer receives a positive memorable experience and with an after sale peace of mind with the warranty. LNK Motors believe applying a warranty on the car gives the customer piece of mind that any mechanical problems will be repaired with little expense.

Abi Sikorski

Abi is a local bury girl who grew up in her family home located close by to the Stables Country Club. From a young age Abi’s dream was to always follow in her Father’s footsteps and eventually take over the family business and that is exactly what she’s done.

Abi’s dedication to be a part of her family business started from when she was just 11 years old helping at the Stables with the housekeeping and breakfast service, she then progressed to working part time as a function and banqueting waitress where she developed a love for customer service, leading her to take on the role of the wedding/events sales. Her hard work paid off and just two years later she moved up to head office working as a sales and marketing executive.

Abi truly believes that if you work hard and follow your heart you will get to where you want to be, this can definitely be shown as Abi is now currently running the Stables Country Club and is a director of the business.

Abi is extremely excited to see the successes that the future brings to both the Stables and the whole team.
