Where are you based? On the edge of Dungannon town, approx. 1.5 miles from the end of the M1 from Belfast, heading in towards Dungannon town centre.
How long have you been in business?
Nearly 30 years.
How many staff do you have across your business?
8 people in total, between Sales, Administration and the workshop.
What is the key to your success?
We endeavour at all times to treat the customer with respect at all times. Listen to their needs and requirements and advise accordingly when required. Whether it a sales enquiry or a workshop problem our approach is the same.
How is the industry right now?
New car sales, with ourselves are virtually non-existent as we find customers are looking for the 6 months/1 year old cars. Its a catch 22 situation, as these cars must be sold as new cars and as we all know less new cars are being registered making 6 month/ 1 year old cars harder to source.
What could the Government do to help the trade?
Make credit more readily available but also making sure that proper controls are kept in place so that we don”t find ourselves in the same situation as we did 5 years ago. Have a word with their Irish counterparts and abolish the VRT tax. Its a restriction on free trade and we in the North of Ireland would certainly benefit with its abolition.
What”s your most expensive Car?
Currently, it is a 2010 Mercedes CL 500. Not our everyday bread and butter stock.
What could you offer someone on a shoestring budget?
Whatever they are looking for. We normally keep stock that is 3/4 year old. But if you require something a bit older and a bit less money, we will endeavour to locate it for the customer.
What”s the most special Car you have ever sold?
Nothing in particular comes to mind. They are all special, especially to the person who has just made the purchase.
What do you drive yourself and why?
An Audi A6. One word, dependable.
What”s your best tip for someone looking for a Car at the moment?
Look for value for money. (That”s were we come in) and a god level of back up and after sales. Probably more important than the purchase itself.
What do you like to do when you”re not at work?
Football refeering and a spot of reading. In no more than 50 words, tell our readers why someone looking for a Car should go and see you? We are small, local and independent and we focus on the small things that the customer requires. We pride ourselves in the fact that we will go that extra mile in pursuit of customer satisfaction.
