Greenhalf Self Drive was opened in 1934 by Ernie Greenhalf. It was one of the first daily hire companies in Southern England. Ernie had previously served an apprenticeship at Hollingsworths as a coach builder. The fleet originally comprised of Austin 7ís and Ford 8ís, which were hired out to the public from premises in Devonshire Place and Havelock Road.
After the war, the whole business was consolidated at premises in Caves Road, and finally in 1956 moved to itís current premises at Grand Parade.
In 1957 Ernie was joined in partnership by his son John, Ernie continued to work regularly until he passed away in 1986.
In 1989 John was, in turn, joined in partnership by his son Guy. They are ably assisted by Mike Allen who is the service manager, he is also quite happy to quote for any repairs or servicing you may need on your own vehicles.
Over the years the fleet has changed a bit, but the commitment to personal service remains the same!
