APB Trading LTD

After a long term family involvement in the motor trade running Rover Dealerships from the mid 1930’s, APB was established by Phillip Bond in the late sixties.

Jack Bond opened and ran the first Rover Dealership in Nairobi, Kenya,in the early 1950’s.

Phillip Bond spent 20 years competing in Specialist Land Rover & 4x4 off-road events with AWDC (All Wheel Drive Club) (such events as the Rallye des Cimes & Plains & Vallies both in France) and over the past 50 years has assembled a professional team, whose combined years of experience and knowledge has put APB ahead of the competition.

APB Workshops carry out Land Rover & 4x4 vehicle servicing, repairs & M.O.T’s, vehicle overland travel & expedition preparation, specialist vehicle preparation, waxoyling and rustproofing. Our parts and warehouse department supplies parts, spares and adventure travel gear & equipment to a wide range of countries throughout the world.

Back in the early 2000s APB became the sole UK importers for a number of South African companies; a country where adventure travel was born. We stock many products which have been imported from South Africa, including Eezi- Awn K9 (the pioneers of the roof tent), National Luna ( the inventors of a fridge for the transportation of vaccines for world health organisations), Escape Gear (high quality canvas seat covers), Bushtech (superior heavy load canopy tops) and Campmor (high quality canvas ground tents and many more products).
