Nolan Prestige

2-JJN-160908-860x480

Jerry James Nolan left school with no qualifications and joined the motor trade on a Youth Training Scheme for two years. To subsidise his salary of around £27 per week, Jerry would buy and sell, work as a labourer on building sites or undertake any other jobs he could find. He eventually qualified as a vehicle components person, working for a large parts distributor. Jerry soon became aware of the most common faults on various cars. This insight allowed him to cherry-pick cars with obvious faults, buy them at a reduced price and fully repair them himself in order to sell them at a profit. Later he advertised in the Watford Observer and began to buy at auction in Enfield, North London.

Now 44 years of age, Jerry lives in St Albans and has two children, Charlie 5 and Luke 20. “My business is very much family and friends and has grown purely on recommendation,” he says. “To this day, I still haven’t any business cards printed. I have a passion for branding and marketing in general and a real love of cars.” Jerry founded Nolan Prestige in 2013 with his brother, Stephen, who is also an avid car enthusiast, buying and selling cars from a very young age. The business model came from Jerry, who had previously owned and operated an established sports and prestige car showroom in Hertfordshire. Jerry found that customers would ask him to sell their sports or prestige vehicles on their behalf, as they did not want the hassle and stress that goes with selling privately. It also made good commercial sense to the customer as they achieved a higher return than they would have under

Jerry founded Nolan Prestige in 2013 with his brother, Stephen, who is also an avid car enthusiast, buying and selling cars from a very young age. The business model came from Jerry, who had previously owned and operated an established sports and prestige car showroom in Hertfordshire. Jerry found that customers would ask him to sell their sports or prestige vehicles on their behalf, as they did not want the hassle and stress that goes with selling privately. It also made good commercial sense to the customer as they achieved a higher return than they would have under part exchange.

“On average, car buying companies will offer less than 70% of the vehicle’s current value,” says Jerry. “Our business model takes all the best aspects of selling cars, leaving the bad bits such as large premises with huge rent and rates. This way I could pass on the savings and give a more personal bespoke service.” “My first cherished number plate was H11 JEL. I’m known to my friends as ‘Jel’ and the 11 was both my birth date and the door number of my first property. I purchased H11 JEL in 1990 and that one went on my beloved Peugeot 205 1.9 GTI, RS Turbo, Sierra Cosworth, Audi UR Quattro and many more. “Over the years I have bought and sold numerous plates from Regtransfers and they have always given me sound advice. I also bought 2 PLS – purchased on a whim. I was told it was a good number and, sure enough, I more than trebled my money. “As a boy out in the car with my late dad driving, I would get excited to see which famous person might be driving the cars with the funny, private number plates. I used to tell my dad to hurry and get in front so I could see who it was. I never thought that, one day, I would have my own initials on my car: 2 JJN Jerry James Nolan. Cherished number plates give you a sense of individuality and achievement, as well as being a sound investment.” www.nolanprestige.co.uk
