Offering affordable self drive hire vehicles in Redruth since 1969

Established in 1969, Melroy Youlton has been running M.Y. Motors for more than 50 years and is proud to be able to call his family-run venture the longest running independent hire company in Cornwall. He was joined by his son Ross after uni in the 90s and in 2010 his daughter Lynn came onboard after a 25-year career with HSBC.

Starting back in the day with just one single hire car, we soon moved to our well known East End location in Redruth where we now boast a large fleet of affordable hire options for a variety of vehicle types, including vans, cars and minibuses. At M.Y. Motors we’re not just about affordable vehicle hire, we are also known for being motorcycle service and repairs specialists, leading a team of qualified MOT technicians that live and breathe all things motorbike.

The self drive specialists

At M.Y. Motors we pride ourselves on putting our customers first each and every time. It means so much to us that we’ve even included it in our company mission statement “an independent car hire company putting customers first since 1969”. We serve both domestic and commercial customers across Redruth and the entire Cornwall region. Providing the best quote possible for all our car, van and minibus hire, as well as for our motorcycle servicing and repairs, is at the heart of everything we do.
