We are excited to announce that we will soon be opening a specialist 4×4 centre opposite our existing Bell Lane Showroom.
The expansion is creating up to 20 jobs for the local area with recruitment now underway.
Set to open in November, the dealership will cater for growing demand for used 4×4 vehicles in the North West. It will include a fully refurbished, state of the art customer sales centre and a selection of more than 250 used 4×4 vehicles. Its on-site aftersales centre and team of master technicians will specialise in servicing all makes and models of 4x4s.
Vehicles stocked will range from the hugely popular Range Rover Evoke to the Audi Q7. We will also be looking to expand into the electric four-wheel drive market.
Vehicles purchased via our new 4×4 centre will enjoy the same warranty packages and finance options currently offered by cartime, including the current option of a six-year warranty, servicing and MOT package. All cartime vehicles also undergo an industry leading 62-point pre-sale check.
With a further new dealership set to open in Rochdale in the coming months, we will now have three sales sites in the north west region, taking our stock up to 1,200 vehicles.
Speaking about the expansion, Cartime’s Managing Director Matt Kay said: “Demand for used 4x4s in the North West is continuing to rise and we saw taking over Farnells’ vacant site as a huge opportunity for us. With more than 250 vehicles in stock at the site, we believe we will become one of the largest specialist used 4×4 centres in the North West.
“The new dealership is ideally located adjacent to our existing Bell Lane sales centre and will be dedicated solely to the sale and warranty work of used 4×4 vehicles – filling the clear gap in the current market.”
Matt added: “2018 is proving to be a huge year of overall growth for the business. We’ve created a robust business model and invested heavily in our processes and technology to facilitate the expansion of our sales capacity – with new sales centres and vehicle stock. The cartime business will have more than doubled in size by the end of the year.”
