I am aware that many of my customers like to deal with a person, face to face, so arrange to visit me. However although I do most of my business by post, there are some in far corners that are too far away from me for that, and who would like to deal with a ‘local’ man. To this end, some years ago I started to make a list of all those I knew for ‘British Seagull, sadly it is now out of date again, so I am trying to update it.
Below is a small list, of those I have found that still actively supply parts and servicing ‘British Seagull’ motors.
Some of these dealers have web sites and if we have swapped links, their web sites can be accessed direct. Others will just appear as names, addresses and telephone numbers. I hope to add more links as this site develops. If you find that a dealer you use is not listed, please let me know. Conversely if one drops out I would like to keep the list valid, so e-mail me with details.

David Spirett... www.landrovermad.co.uk David is a Land Rover Dealer in York, but in days of yore exported Landrovers and British Seagulls all over the globe. He still is a Landrover Dealer and this is a link to his site. no mention of British Seagulls on it, but he does still supply parts and has a stock of spares, may do servicing too
Come on there must be some other dealers in the UK who do not mind a bit of free advertising, surely? If you know of a good British Seagull spares outlet, let me know and I will speak to them..... Why are they shy? well I now know there are at least a dozen repair and service agents for British Seagull, up and down the country. these are proper companies doing a good job, they buy parts from me, but they say they are swamped with local British Seagull owners and do not wish to advertise for more work. Fair enough. From Ramsgate to the west country, from Norfolk to Scotland and Wales, they are everywhere. I have also heard from as many more who do servicing for friends and acquaintances on an 'ad hoc' basis, but they are not running a business and do not let the tax man know, so understandably they do not wish to advertise their services here.
