Four months after seeing 90 per cent of its operation wiped out due to extensive flood damage, Motordepot is back...bigger and better than before!
That's the resounding message after the company unveiled its plans to take the dealership forward into a new era.
Underpinning the dynamic reincarnation is the refurbishment of the company's flagship Hessle showroom. The popular Livingstone Road facility has reopened already, complete with a new preparation centre and fresh, new livery and signage will be in place very soon. It will house around 300 vehicles initially, the vast majority of which will be under two years old.
Forming part of an ambitious expansion programme, Motordepot are pleased that its long-awaited new dealership on Mannaberg Way, Scunthorpe is now fully operational with striking, dynamic new livery in place. It's envisaged that the six-acre site will accommodate a fresh stock-list of up to 500 vehicles (the vast majority under two years old) to run alongside its 'state of the art' vehicle preparation, servicing and MOT facilities.
In addition, Motordepot has revealed that it is to persist with its East Hull operation on Clarence Street as part of the restructure. The facility - which is conveniently located close to Hull city centre - will be primarily used as a vehicle preparation, servicing and MOT centre, but with the added attraction of housing a small selection of vehicles for sale.
Commenting on the plans, managing director Steve Butterley said: "It's the start of a bright new era for the company."
"The flooding experience was horrific for everybody concerned, but it says everything about the resilience of Motordepot that we have bounced back so quickly to get into the position we find ourselves today."
"We have used our enforced sabbatical as a chance to refresh the brand, revamp operations and re-energise ourselves."
"We are all excited to be back in the game and our customers can look forward to better deals and better service levels than ever before."
