A MARQUE OF SUCCESS
As JCT600 – one of the largest car dealership groups in the country – continues its growth ambitions, Portable Offices’ Leeds office has stepped in to provide a state-of-the-art marketing suite for the newly launched Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ dealership in Leeds.
This is the first time in many years that Rolls-Royce has had a presence in Leeds and JCT600 were delighted when they were awarded the franchise. Keen to establish a facility in the fastest possible time, the group opted for a portable marketing suite.
This two bay unit provides a luxury statement with walnut doors and trim and glazed partition units with LED lighting and a contemporary kitchen, showcasing a classic upmarket image synonymous with one of the UK’s most prestigious brands.
JCT600 Property Director, Mark Taylor, explains: “We have been operating a number of ‘pop-up’ dealerships but wanted something more prestigious for Rolls-Royce and more of a marketing suite than a showroom, that could also accommodate our sales team.”
“We have a long standing relationship with Portable Offices, but still put them into a competitive tender situation. They came up with a versatile option that fulfilled our criteria using a preloved building.”
“ROLLS-ROYCE MOTOR CARS WERE INVOLVED IN THE APPROVAL PROCESS AND WERE DELIGHTED WITH THE FINISHED RESULT.”
“AS ALWAYS, WE RECEIVED EXCELLENT SERVICE FROM PORTABLE OFFICES AND HAVE RECEIVED EXCELLENT FEEDBACK FROM CUSTOMERS VISITING THE SITE.”
On this occasion, JCT600 purchased the unit. Mark explains why: “We have a plan to re-use the suite elsewhere and so it made sense to purchase in this instance. We will then ask Portable Offices to decant it later on when a new showroom is established for Rolls-Royce.
“We find Portable Offices to be responsive and flexible; the use of leg pads to site the buildings means that we can situate them on ground that isn’t particularly level or firm. We are continually checking them on price and they remain competitive throughout.”
Manager, Becky Scholefield said: “Our brief was to provide a sales suite that complimented this luxury marque and that is what has been achieved. It is amazing how a portable unit can be transformed and indeed elevated into such an upmarket hub that reflects this pinnacle of classic elegance.”
Portable Offices has also just provided a set of cabins for the JCT600 Porsche dealership team in Sheffield whilst they underwent a major refurbished.
