Eakin Brothers celebrating 95 years in the motor trade


Eakin Brothers began life in Claudy village 95 years ago, when our founder Samuel David Eakin opened his doors in 1923.
The present chairman of the company, Jack Eakin, would follow in his fathers footsteps, and he has now been leading the company for over 66 years, building it up to what it is today.
His sons, John and Peter, are Dealer Principals of the two sites operated by the company, in Claudy and Maydown, Co Londonderry. John runs the Maydown site, Quality Used Cars, whilst Peter manages Claudy, encompassing Isuzu, LDV, Iveco, TGB Quads and more recently Brian James Trailers. Both sons have worked in the company for over 36 years.
With loyal and long-serving staff members, Eakin Brothers have been able to put customer satisfaction as a priority and always try to offer the best service possible. Most of our customers are on first name terms with our staff and often just pop in for a chat.
However as a company we never stand still and are always looking at ways to raise our standards higher and cater for the ever-changing needs of the highest-discerning motorists.
Car retailing has changed dramatically in the past 10 years and Eakin Brothers have been in consultation with customers to map out the future for the facility at Maydown, Derry/Londonderry.
The next step into the future with Eakin Brothers has been to move away from the Vauxhall Franchise to establish ourselves firmly as a specialised quality used car retailer, something we and our customers see as the best way forward to offer a best solution to their motoring needs, rebranding to Eakin Quality Car Centre for used cars in Derry/Londonderry.
The fact that this also means you, our customer, can make a considerable savings on the new retail price could allow you to purchase that car you always dreamed of, but could never afford.
Well now you can! With our specially selected finance partners and very competitive finance rates, your dream car awaits you in our new used car facility at Eakin Quality Car Centre, Maydown, Derry/Londonderry.
Going forward, we understand the value, and importance, in sourcing cars to suit our customers needs. We also have the ability to offer a competitive finance deal and the best comprehensive aftercare package available. Our customers, whilst spending their hard-earned money, deserve the best we as a company can offer.
Customers have now become much more tech savvy in using digital sources to research the best car for their families needs. And with such great selection out there, that highly-specked car, which you could not afford new, is now possible with a quality used car from Eakin Quality Car Centre, Derry/Londonderry.
Our quality-checked preparation process and comprehensive minimum 12-month warranty, 12-month roadside breakdown recovery will ensure you have not only a quality checked used car but an aftercare package which offers you, our customer, complete peace of mind.
We can also deliver any make, new or used vehicle with manufacturer warranty, to suit your requirements and needs, sourced from our quality checked and industry approved remarketing channels.
Our industry trained technicians now service, all makes of cars using genuine quality parts with the latest diagnostic tools at a highly competitive price.
Within the parts department we source all makes vehicle parts from a genuine, quality checked supply chain which offers you, our customer, a saving on the same part supplied by a manufacturer.

You will still enjoy the same high level of service, from the same familiar and experienced staff, at the same Eakin Brothers, now trading as Eakin Quality Car Centre, your used car dealer for Derry/Londonderry.
