Motordepot Car Supermarket based in Hull have recently announced plans to develop a four acre vehicle preparation centre near Goole, in East Yorkshire.
The centre will have the capacity to hold around 500 vehicles and will include forty vehicle ramps, five MOT stations, onsite paint facilities, a 30 bay valeting area and state of the art vehicle photography suites.
The company anticipate up to 100 new jobs will be created and the centre will become a cornerstone in their future growth plans.
After extensive expansion over recent years, Motordepot confirmed further sites are planned throughout 2018/19 including the imminent opening of a new 75,000sq foot vehicle showroom in Barnsley displaying 400 vehicles at any one time.
Motordepot are confident that vehicle sales will exceed 25,000 during the course of this year, creating the demand for the additional support that the preparation centre will provide. The centre will focus entirely on ensuring all vehicles are mechanically and aesthetically prepared to the highest standards before being delivered directly to the retail showrooms. The centre will operate 7 days per week and is capable of handling around 150 vehicles each and every day.
Managing Director Stephen Butterley explains why the Goole investment was a sensible choice “We have been looking for suitable locations for some time and the site in Goole was perfect in every way. Logistically it made sense, with great Motorway access that’s important for distribution to our sites across the UK, but equally important is the large catchment area for attracting people with the necessary skills and attributes that we’re going to need.
“With OTE earnings for qualified technicians in the region of £35,000 we’re expecting to be able to fill all the available roles quite quickly and we’re hoping people in the area will be excited by the opportunities that working for Motordepot can offer them”.
Recruitment is already underway for Vehicle Technicians and Mechanics, MOT Testers, Paint specialists and Valet team members as well as the necessary administration and logistics posts that will be created once open.
The company has also organised a recruitment evening on Tuesday 22nd May at the Hallmark Hotel in North Ferriby from 4.30pm until 8.00pm. A referral scheme is also in place with the company providing £250 for every referral leading to successful employment.
