A new used car concept will launch in West Yorkshire next month, following months of preparation and over £150,000 of investment.
The Car Spot, based in Sowerby Bridge, is set to create six new jobs for the area and will provide customers with a different way to sell their vehicle.
The idea is simple — when someone takes their car to The Car Spot, the company will prepare it, advertise it and sell it within 60 days, for a flat fee. And if the vehicle isn’t retailed within the initial two-month period, The Car Spot will offer to buy it from them.
This fresh approach will also be mirrored on the buying side of the business, with the introduction of a ‘CarFinder’ tool. If a customer has specific requirements in terms of the make, model, mileage, and colour of a vehicle, for instance, The Car Spot’s advisors will source it for them.
The company will also offer customers the option to buy a car online and get it delivered to their home or place of work.
David Hobin, managing director of The Car Spot said: “In the past few years, the car market has changed. The customer is no longer willing to settle for poor service or choice. So, we wanted to launch a business which is truly focused on an individual’s needs.
“We also bring a human element to buying and selling cars. Online car buying is on the up, but we think it’s important to offer a personable service alongside that. From the moment a customer enquires, they’ll be able to speak to and get guidance from one of our advisors, whether it’s over the phone, email, SMS, or on social media.”
