Walter Bristo, started the Bristo's company as a horse and carriage taxi firm in Ipswich around 1910. It began trading in motor vehicles in 1932 with the Vauxhall/Bedford agency. Its three sites, just a mile from the town centre, incorporate the most modern showrooms and workshops in the area.
Harry Head, bought the business in 1966 and Bristo's gained the Toyota franchise in the 1970's. Bristo's has expanded significantly to welcome the prestigious Renault franchise and more recently ŠKODA and Dacia.
While the garage has grown and modernised to move with the times, the family have never lost their commitment to traditional service and value. Says Managing Director, Ian Head, "Our philosophy has always been to provide customer satisfaction, quality and value". Our word is our bond and we strive to deliver only the best. After forty years, and with an amazingly low turnover in staff, our customers know that they can depend on us for first class service, high quality vehicles and personal attention second-to-none.
The friendly staff at our dealerships in Ipswich will be happy to book you in for a test drive in one of our Renault, ŠKODA or Dacia new cars, or provide information about any of our Business vehicles, Electric Vehicles, Motability cars or Commercial vehicles. We can also help you look after your vehicle with aftersales care such as servicing, MOTs and repairs.
There is always a great selection of all-makes used cars in stock at our showrooms on Woodbridge Road, Ipswich and we have the ability to source vehicles to your request.
