NOT YOUR AVERAGE GARAGE

Looking for a good quality, reliable used MINI without the pushy sales experience? Perhaps you’re looking for a MINI specialist garage to maintain or fix your MINI. You’ve come to the right place!

A family business, based in between Nottingham, Derby & Leicester, we try to provide the most friendly and transparent process, whether you’ve come to buy a MINI or have one fixed.

Here at The MINI Company we like to do things a little differently. As a MINI specialist garage with over 25 years experience in the UK motor trade, we’re a little tired of the norm. Confusing quotes, technician speak and ridiculous labour rates – we try and be upfront and honest from diagnosis to delivering your car back in full health.

It’s also very stressful when something goes wrong with your MINI. Often, MINI problems are a lot more simple than many garages make out. We try to make our diagnostic and MINI repairs service as transparent and stress-free as possible.

We offer the following MINI services:

  • General MINI Servicing – click here for pricing
  • MINI Engine Rebuilds and Diagnostic
  • MINI Brake Service & Disc, Pad & Caliper Replacement
  • MINI Exhaust Replacement
  • General MINI Repairs
  • Full Health Check with Every Repair or Service
  • Diagnostic – £35
  • Courtesy Car if possible

    5 star review  The best people to get a Mini from without a doubt. Went over and above what was needed to ensure that BAM was ready for his next owner and were very patient running through everything! Totally recommend anyone wanting a Mini of any kind talk to Niki and Matt first. Many thanks, James

    5 star review  Niki and Matt couldn’t have been more helpful finding us the right mini for our daughter. The whole experience was made really special for her. If you want a great car buying experience this is the place to go. I can’t recommend them enough.

    5 star review  Niki and Matt are the owners of The Mini Company. They are both passionate Mini experts. They are also incredibly helpful and friendly. I’d been thinking for the last 18 months about buying what I think is the best of Minis, an R56 John Cooper Works. I’m no expert so I was glad to talk to Niki and Matt who taught me a lot about Mini character and ownership and showed me a superb grey JCW. They volunteered to do a precautionary early timing chain swap and service and were more than happy to make a couple of personal tweaks of my choice. Within a few days I was picking up what I think is the best of the best Minis. My battmobile from Gotham.! Thanks Niki and Matt.

    5 star review  An absolutely brilliant experience buying my first Mini! Impressed with the service, integrity and honesty of Niki and Matt throughout. They explained everything, were trusting and have excellent post sales care. Nothing was too much trouble and you could tell that they have a real passion for what they do. Also a brilliant selection of cars that have been looked after. Would recommend them to anyone and shall use them again should the need arise! Thanks 🙂

    5 star review  Niki and Matt, your knowledge, care, level of attention, commitment and love for your company and to the service you offer your customers is nothing short of outstanding. We have left with a car that my son is proud to own and one that we have full confidence and trust in. You have been so generous with your time with Charlie and we can’t thank you enough. For anyone thinking of purchasing a mini...ring them now. You won’t regret it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    5 star review  I have bought many cars over the years and this was by far the best buying experience I have ever had. My son had been after a Mini One with a works kit on for a while and we did the deal after 2 relaxed visits and honestly Niki and Matt could not do enough for us, even having a windscreen replaced in under 24 hours. When we collected the car it was immaculate and left with a goodie bag and a new set of free mats. If your after a Mini then give them a call, its great to do business with a small family company where your treated like a friend rather than the main dealer experience where they just want your money. 100% Recommended.

  • 5 star review  Customer satisfaction was definitely important to Nici and Matt. From my first viewing of the Mini i purchased, they both went above and beyond to ensure i was happy with every step. I love my Purchase, a Mini being my first car in 1979 so wanted to go back to that experience again, with Nici and Matt fulfilling that dream. I will always be grateful for their knowledge in helping me choose and the after sale service, was second to none, with 6 months Warranty thrown in. I cannot praise them enough, no pushy selling, they answered all of my questions again with no expectations of a sale and should i look to change my Car again, they will be the first company i will go too.

    5 star review  Fantastic customer service. This place is a great little find. Can’t fault them. Niki was great and helped us chose a fantastic Mini Cooper as a first car for my Son. Really good honest advice. Highly recommend if you want the personal touch of superb small company doing all the right things!

    5 star review  Stumbled on this little gem whilst looking for my daughters first car. The bespoke garage is a must find. Nothing was too much trouble for Nikki and Matt to achieve. No pushy sales patter, decent cars which are serviced, cleaned and can be adapted to the customers requirements, just tell Nikki and Matt what you want and they will deliver. Lots of care and attention given to the customer throughout. If you’re looking for that car purchase, then look no further than The Mini Company. Make it your next pit stop. You won’t be disappointed.

    5 star review  What can I say about Matt and Nicky, if you have an idea in your head of car sellers then your in for a refreshing surprise. Two more helpful and honest people you will not meet, nothing is to much trouble for them The mini they sold us is fantastic, the welcome pack that came with it along with the service new clutch and warranty are much appreciated and something you don’t get from the larger dealers. You have to try the mini company it’s more like being part of a small family Many thanks Regards Lyndon and Teana

    5 star review  Easily the best used car buying experience we've ever had. They take such exceptional care of the cars they sell, we were kept updated throughout the whole process which just added to the excitement. Every slight imperfection on the car was fixed before they were happy to sell it, even some that we weren't aware off. They definitely go the extra mile to make sure what they're selling is of the best quality for it's age. Would 100% return, and would 100% recommend to anybody looking for a used Mini!!

    5 star review  Excellent customer service, I had seen a JCW mini but I needed an expert to help me! Matt went out of his way to help me get the car of my dreams. Matt ensured that the car was in good repair and replaced parts that BMW had issues with, so that I need not worry about the car in the future. Customer service is out of this world! collection was wonderful and I have never looked back - not that you need to in A JCW, Thanks Matt & Nik
