AvailableCar Sutton-In-Ashfield Expansion
We are excitied to announce that we have taken over the three acres and the 10,000 sq ft building formerly belonging to Oaktree Motor Homes. The site, which sits directly in-front of our Sutton-In-Ashfield used car superstore, is located on the A38, close to junction 28 of the M1.
Once the move is complete, we will open a brand new state-of-the-art vehicle and preparation centre and paint-shop. The expansion will also make way for an extra 250 vehicle displays, ensuring we have the largest choice and selection of used cars in the Midlands, with 1,000 cars in total.
Our Managers are also recruiting up to 15 new employees in various roles to join the team, including Preparation and Valeting Team Members plus Paint Technicians, MOT Operatives and Sales Team Members, which will take the employee total to nearly 100.
We are very proud at AvailableCar to have one of the highest retention figures for employees in the business with well over 90% of faces having been with us, since the beginning. We have won more than eight National Awards as recognition for our world-class service and have also raised more than £70,000 for charity in the local community.
We have had incredible success since opening in 2002, having won the hearts of thousands of customers thanks to our trustworthy low-priced cars and no hassle philosophy.
Our present car selection in Sutton-In-Ashfield alone, is one the largest in the Country with more than 750 used cars in-stock and over 2,200 used cars on-line at any one time.
Paul Arscott, Operations Director said: “We are pleased that despite tough industry conditions in 2011, we have continued to attract savvy car buyers, increased revenues and now expanded by a further three acres into the former Oaktree Motor Homes site.
“To be able to enlarge our stock levels with a lot more choice and selection and have such fantastic vehicle preparation facilities on-site, will help us in our mission to make the customer experience even better.
With the expansion we are looking to take on new Team Members to join our already successful team.”
