Hanham Motors was established by my grandfather Harold Carder in 1949.
The Building was the original Bus depot of Ringwood and owned by the Hants and Dorset Bus Company. Starting out selling Speedway and Road bikes he later moved into selling cars
My Father Brian Hanham joined Harold in the business in the early 1960s. Carders Motors , as we were known then, became a very successful garage selling new and used cars to the people of Ringwood and surrounding areas. After Harold retired my father took over as sole proprietor.
My family has always been involved in Motorcycle racing and in the 1970s the business returned to selling bikes. My Brother and I joined the business in the80s and the decision to return to car sales was made.
