Podcast: Showroom fires, our ideas to move a big ship and PJ Quinn shares the changes he’s made

Time 3 months ago

This week our guest judge is Emerald House of Cars boss PJ Quinn who talks about the big changes he’s made to his business and about what sets them apart.

However, as the real reason we’ve got him on is to be our guest judge – who is going to get some Irish luck from him?

There was a huge variety of stories for myself and James to pick from this time, from ships stuck in the Suez canal, mechanics paid in pennies and fires in dealerships.

Meanwhile, the fallout from the plug-in car grant was continuing to spark announcements and as dealership prepare to reopen there was plenty to talk about on that front too.

Quinn has been implementing some new strategies at his dealership to make sure the used car dealership is stocked up in preparation from April 12.

He also talks about how the business used to run and how he’s seen success from changing the stock profile during the pandemic.
