Dedicated To Passenger Carrying Vehicles, our HQ in Colne, Lancashire is ideally located close to major motorways and holds our extensive stock in one location. David Fishwick started his vehicle sales career back in the nineties. Setting up the business in his hometown of Burnley, Lancashire, the initial focus was on cars and commercials – but his entrepreneurial spirit identified a gap in the market for quality minibuses, which quickly resulted in in significant change of approach and the aim of building the business to be the UK’s premier supplier. Proudly independent, we built our current dealership in 2003 and held the local LDV franchise until 2008 whilst simultaneously developing bespoke conversions on a number of manufactures platforms to supplement the range and provide our customers with unrivaled choice. With the advent of technology, an increasing number of our sales are completed remotely but we still believe that often the best way to choose from our products is to visit and view or test drive them back-to-back. Custom Built Location Designed to offer a range of options in one location, our dealership was built specifically for the job, has expanded over the years and can hold hundreds of vehicles at any g [...]
Buying from David Fishwick? Take advantage of Burnley Savings & Loans! Burnley Savings and Loans Ltd officially opened its doors in September 2011. The company was created by David Fishwick, a local business man, and the largest supplier of Minibuses in the U.K. After the recession began in late 2008 to early 2009, Dave found that many of the customers he had done business with for many years were, through no fault of their own, struggling to obtain loans from their High Street Banks. Dave decided that if the Banks weren’t willing to help ordinary people, then he would! Under the slogan “Bank on Dave!” and using the correct legal channels, Dave obtained the necessary documentation required to issue loans, and, feeling that High Street Banks treat people as credit scores and not individuals, decided to return to basics. As such, Burnley Savings and Loans Ltd DO NOT use a generic credit score, choosing a more personal approach to underwriting and dealing with all customers on a case by case basis. He decided that Burnley Savings and Loans Ltd should offer a highly competitive rate of interest, making customer’s savings work harder for them. And so, with the assistance of a great team of lawyers, Burnley Savings and Loa [...]

An interesting history of growth and change, from vehicles, to banks & TV. To providing an exceptional service in 2018. It’s always fascinating to find out how people got to where they are today, and David’s story is no exception. Like many successful entrepreneurs, he started off small, but soon got bigger. The business in Colne was originally set up in 2003 with the LDV franchise already in place. When David started up, the first vehicle was sold before the doors officially opened. Over the coming years he expanded the company with a wider range of manufacturers, to meet the increasingly specialised demand of customers. In 2008 funding became difficult to source for customers due to the financial crisis. Times were tough – lenders were reluctant to give to many businesses but with David’s foresight we approached the challenge in a different way and we started funding vehicles ourselves through the “Bank on Dave!”. This was, and still is for customers who couldn’t go down the conventional high street banking route. Much of today’s success is attributable to David himself. He is well known as a media personality due to his BAFTA-winning consumer rights programmes The Bank of Dave and David Fishwick: Lone Ranger. He [...]
