Evans Halshaw opens new Car Stores to cater for web buyers

Time 9:51 am, January 26, 2016

EVANS HALSHAW, one of the UK’s largest dealer groups, has opened the latest additions to its used car brand with ‘Car Stores’ in Bristol and Norwich.

Car Store offers a buying environment exclusively for online customers.

The Bristol site is on the Cribbs Causeway Estate, while Car Store Norwich is at Broadland Business Park.

The two stores are the fourth and fifth locations to carry the Car Store name, joining the other dealerships in Birmingham, Slough and Chessington.

The openings are part of the group’s impressive growth strategy, which will eventually include 40 new retail outlets.

Car Stores Bristol and Norwich will serve as a local ‘click and collect’ style pick-up point for Evans Halshaw’s 1.5 million online customers taking advantage of its Move Me Closer and Sell Your Car services.

By utilising the brand’s Move Me Closer scheme, customers are able to browse 20,000 used cars from Evans Halshaw dealerships across the UK and can have their preferred model moved closer to them for viewing.

Meanwhile, the Sell Your Car service means customers can book a car valuation appointment online or over the phone and, following a face-to-face valuation, Evans Halshaw will buy any car – even if the customers is not purchasing a vehicle.

Stuart Foulds, national franchise director, said: ‘There has been a strong demand for the Move Me Closer service from customers in South West England and the East of England so we invested in destinations that could serve those customers at a location more convenient to them.’
