106 Year Heritage

At the turn of the 20th century, David Marshall leased a small workshop from Cambridge University and started hiring out and maintaining cars. Over the following 106 years, the Marshall business has grown to encompass a successful aerospace and engineering business including owning and operating Cambridge Airport. Marshall Minibus continues this proud heritage and, as part of Marshall Motor Holdings PLC, is backed by one of the leading motor dealer groups in the UK.

Since 2008 the Group has restructured its dealership portfolio, operating over 100 franchise dealerships and representing 24 manufacturing brands. Turnover is in excess of £1.5bn per annum, and Marshall is the only motor retailer in the UK with top 5 prestige and top 10 volume brands, accounting for over 88% of the brands sold in the UK.

Marshall Minibus is a division of Marshall Leasing Limited, a company which manages more than 7000 vehicles throughout the UK. Our highly experienced management team is headed up by Peter Cakebread who has managed the business for more than 25 years.
