The Mini Model Shop was launched way back in September 2003 and we are proud to say has grown into one of the UK’s largest online diecast model shops.
Thankfully the team behind the scenes have been on board since the very beginning, so our product knowledge and expertise is extensive. We’ve done a few miles!
Meet The Team
Mini Model Shop HQ is in Rochester, Kent which is where most of our employees are based. Although we like to offer flexible working conditions, so at times a few of us can be found dotted around Kent, working from home.
We have a small team of specialists who work behind the scenes on product buying, website design, customer services, managing the warehouse, marketing and data analysis.
The core team consists of....
‘Rowly’ the stock ninja who is the fountain of knowledge when it comes to buying diecast models (and makes a mean cup of tea!).
‘Mel’ the marketer who spreads the word about the Mini Model Shop brand.
‘Mark’ the IT guru who builds and develops our website and does all the techy stuff behind the scenes (who is also the boss of the family!).
‘Laura’ the web designer who designs the website and all our brand communications.
‘John’ the sales guy who spends most of the day on the phone (oh yes he can talk!).
‘Natalie’ the baby of the team who deals with our accounts and talks to all our lovely customers.
‘Dan’ the warehouse man, who picks and packs your orders and keeps the warehouse in tip top condition.
‘LJ’ the office manager who makes sure we run a slick operation and more importantly keeps us in order!
As we have all worked together for many years we have a real ‘family’ culture in the office.
We all are passionate about the industry and strive to deliver outstanding customer service. If you are searching for a limited edition model but aren’t having any joy give us a call and we’ll help in any way we can.
