Car Dealer Live 67: Divine Automotive’s Tom Blackmore

Time 7:52 am, July 3, 2020

From detailing cars to selling Lamborghinis, we talked about how to turn a small business into a huge success story on today’s Car Dealer Live.

At midday on our YouTube channel we chatted with Tom Blackmore from Divine Automotive.

Blackmore started a business called Divine Detailing in 2009 as a mobile service for clients all over Yorkshire.

But in 2012 he decided to expand the business and break into the world of selling cars as well. A name change to Divine Automotive followed and the business has since boomed.

One look at the company’s website and it reveals Divine has two Lamborghini Aventadors, one Porsche Cayman GT4 and a Ferrari F12 in stock.

Oh, and Blackmore is only 29 years old.

Covered on today’s show:

• How Blackmore started the business

• What happened for him in lockdown

• How he buys stock

• What his customers are like
