The East Yorkshire-based dealership has completed negotiations to take over the old Car Select premises, pictured, on the outskirts of Birmingham International Airport, with the aim to be fully operational before Christmas.
Motor Depot currently operates from premises in Hull, Hessle and Scunthorpe but the acquisition of the four-acre, 500-car site in Birmingham represents its first expansion outside of its Humber region heartland.
Managing director Steve Butterley has revealed that a move into the West Midlands has long been a strategic aim for the company which first began trading in Hull 11 years ago.
He added: ‘We believe that our successful sales model can be transported to new areas and we are excited at the prospect of rolling it out to a vast new market.
‘As well as Birmingham itself, this site – within easy access of Junction 7 of the M42 and Junction 4 of the M6 – opens us up to new customer bases in Coventry, Nuneaton, Solihull and beyond.”
