As JCT 600 – one of the largest car dealership groups in the country – continues its growth pattern, Portable Offices’ Leeds office has stepped in to provide a state-of-the-art sales suite for the newly launched Rolls Royce Motor Cars’ dealership in Leeds.
This is the first time in over 15 years that Rolls Royce has had a presence in Leeds and JCT 600 was delighted when they were awarded the franchise by Rolls Royce. Keen to establish a facility in the fastest possible time, the group opted for a portable sales suite.
This two bay unit provides a luxury statement with walnut doors and trim and glazed partition units with low level lighting and a contemporary kitchen, showcasing a classic upmarket image synonymous with one of the UK’s most prestigious brands.
JCT 600 Property Director, Mark Taylor, explains: “We have been opting for 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 it into a competitive tender situation. They came up with a versatile option that fulfilled our criteria using a preloved building.
“Rolls Royce were involved in the approval process and were actually 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, JCT 600 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 recant it later on when a new showroom is established for Rolls Royce.
“We find Portable Offices to be responsive and flexible; the use of pads to site the buildings means that we can situate them on uneven ground and there are lots of quirky methods that they use to make it easier for us to spread the load. We are always checking them on price and they remain competitive throughout.”
Portable Offices Site 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 JCT 600 Porsche dealership in Sheffield while they refurbish the dealership there.
