A major refurbishment and rebuilding programme at Peugeot City Motors in Newcastle meant that the used car sales operation needed to relocate to a disused petrol forecourt adjacent to the site. The forecourt provides space for more than 100 cars, but new accommodation was needed to house the team of five salesmen and the sales manager.Solution :
General Sales Manager, John Tighe, says: “We needed interim accommodation for about 18 months, until the brand-new showroom was completed. I knew about Portakabin buildings, so the local Hire Centre was my first point of contact. I gave them our requirements and they came up with a building that met all our specifications and would comfortably house our six-man team.”
The Portakabin hire team recommended a Titan building for the Peugeot sales people. It is the largest single modular building on the market, and offers the kind of bright, attractive and welcoming environment that is essential when you are providing facilities for customers as well as employees. In addition, Portakabin tailored the exterior of the high quality building in Peugeot’s corporate blue.
Portakabin has a unique Customer Charter, which promises to deliver all buildings on time and on budget. For complete peace of mind, if the Company ever fails to meet this commitment, it offers one week’s free hire for every day it is late.*
In line with its promise, Portakabin delivered and installed the building at City Motors on the agreed date, ready for the sales team to move straight in.
The building provides a large open-plan office area for the five salesmen, incorporating a comfortable reception for customers with a seating and television area. At one end of the building, a partition wall creates a separate office for the sales manager.
John Tighe adds: “The new building is brilliant. It’s very clean and comfortable, and everyone has been happy working in here. We’ve been pleased with the service from Portakabin. Their response to any requests from us has always been prompt. We’ve now hired a second building for our new car sales team, who’ve had to move out of their existing offices while the refurbishment work continues.”
