Square Dealz is the car lot that the people of Walford buy second hand cars from.


In 1985 the land was being used as a discount tyre yard. Later Chris Smith ran a haulage business from the site until 1988. It was then briefly occupied by 'The Firm' in the name of Walford Investments.

In 1989 Pat and Frank Butcher opened a car lot on the site and called it Frank's Autos. Pat also ran a taxi business called Pat Cabs from here in 1992 (rebranded F&P Cabs in 1993). In 1994 Frank asked Phil Mitchell to set fire to the car lot for the insurance but the plan went wrong when someone died in the fire and Frank disappeared for a couple of years. In Frank's absence the car lot was rebuilt and run by David Wicks who renamed the business Deals on Wheels. When David left Walford in 1996 he sold a share of the business to Roy Evans who ran it with Barry Evans and Pat. At this time Barry operated an upmarket cab company from the car lot called Evans Executive Motors but this venture was short-lived. Barry was forced to leave Deals on Wheels in 1997 after being conned by Vanessa Carlton which landed the business in trouble. When Roy faced further financial difficulty in 1998 he went into partnership with Frank Butcher to keep the business going.

In November 2000, after Pat's affair with Frank was revealed Roy decided to change the name of the business to Evans & Son Cars. Barry returned to the car lot at this point. After Roy's death in 2003, Barry continued the business with Janine Butcher who he later married only to die soon after the wedding. Janine then took over the car lot in 2004, keeping the Evans & Son name. Initially she ran the business with her brother Ricky, then by herself until she was arrested for murder in May 2004.

After Janine's arrest, Nana Moon's fiancé Wilfred showed an interest in buying the car lot, but it was later found out that he was scamming Pat. From July 2004 until 2005, Adi, Ash, Ronny Ferreira, Tariq Larousi and Sasha Perkins ran it under the name Toucan Cars. Patrick Trueman then briefly ran it in the name of Trueman's Motors. In 2006 Kevin Wicks bought it and traded as Wicks and Son, and then Getaway Motors. When Kevin died in 2008 Pat got it back and called it Pat Cars.

The land and business was later sold to Jack Branning who then sold the business to Janine Butcher. Janine ran the business in the name of Janine Cars until Archie Mitchell took ownership of both the land and the business in 2009 and renamed it Mitchell Executive Motors. When Archie was murdered he left it to his daughter Roxy Mitchell (Who Killed Archie Mitchell?) who later rented it to Max Branning. Max planned to go into partnership with his son Bradley Branning but after Bradley died Max went into partnership with his brother Jack. During this time the business was known as Branning and Son, and then Branning Brothers. In 2014 Jack sold his shares to David Wicks. David restored the name of the business to Deals on Wheels, bought the Free-hold off Roxy and replaced the Office. Later the same year he left Walford again and took his money out of the business. Phil Mitchell later conned Max into handing the business over to him.

In April 2016 Phil smashed up the car lot. It ceased trading. In September 2017, the car lot was gifted to Jay Brown by Phil. The following month, Weyland & Co bought it off Jay. After Fi Browning disowned her father after finding out that he was planning to build flats over Albert Square, she gifted it to Max Branning. In April 2018, Max re-opened the car lot 2 years after it had closed as Maximum Motors. In May 2019, it was revealed that Jay still owned the land that Maximum Motors is on and therefore Max and Rainie were thrown out and Jay took over the business in partnership with Ben Mitchell. They renamed the business Square Dealz.

In 2022, Tom Cotton is hired as he wants to pay back Sonia and Kathy for his lies. Also this year, a new Unit was added behind it. It’s unknown if this is intended to be a showroom or if it’s simply a part of the BBC studio behind it on the new set
