People buy Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars because they appreciate the best things in life, so it stands to reason they also want extra-special service from their chosen garage, and that is how Chris Lee's Ltd has built its enviable reputation.
Chris Lee is a Rolls-Royce man through and through and honed his craft at the company's Hythe Road premises, West London. While there, he had the distinction of being singled out to work on the Royal fleet. However, life moves on and he left in 1975 in order to establish the eponymous independent Rolls-Royce concern he still heads today.
Royal and celebrity customers
Some 80 per cent of the business is focused on Rolls-Royce and Bentley models of all ages. Among Chris's prized keepsakes is a personal letter from Princess Margaret, thanking us for looking after her cars for no less than 12 years. More recently we carried out a total restoration of the Emir of Kano's Rolls-Royce, and Chris and I was honoured to be invited to Nigeria and meet with him personally. We have also completed a project for the King of Malaysia, while the list of celebrities we have served over the years reads like the Who's Who of the entertainment industry."
The company has moved to Ewelme near Watlington but still within easy reach of the M40 and M25 motorways. Most of the extra work stems from satisfied UK customers recommending the firm's services to like-minded owners. However, business from abroad also continues to grow, and a contract to assist a global Philippines-based restoration company in the renovation of Rolls-Royces and Bentleys is an interesting new addition to the Chris Lee's portfolio.
Concludes Chris Lee: "Surely there are few greater privileges in life than being paid to do what you love, and I'm not exaggerating when I say our work feels more like a hobby than a job for my staff and me."
