Jennings Ford, part of the Jennings Motor Group, has reported a substantial increase in new commercial vehicle sales for the first three months of business at its new purpose-built Transit Centre in Gateshead.
Based at the Eslington Park dealership, the new £500K Ford Transit Centre sells the award-winning Ford commercial vehicle range to both retail and business customers on a local and national level.
New commercial vehicle sales have increased by 46 per cent compared to the same three-month period last year.
Eric Vickers, commercial sales manager, said; “The recent success is down to a number of contributing factors, including a new re-branding strategy offering additional facilities and peace of mind motoring, which has been implemented nationwide by Ford Motor Company, in addition to a competitively-priced award-winning product range.”
Jennings Ford’s new state-of-the-art Transit Centre incorporates Ford’s Transit Centre promise, which combines four main pillars, including Transit Trust, Transit Convenience, Transit 24-service and Transit Finance.
Transit Trust gives customers peace of mind motoring as a result of all commercial vehicles in the range being supported by RAC workshop quality accreditation.
Operating the largest network of dedicated commercial vehicle dealers in the UK, Ford’s Transit Convenience ensures a local Ford Transit Centre is always nearby with 95% of the UK being no further than 45 minutes from a Transit Centre or Service location.
Aimed to minimise the time a vehicle is off the road for routine or emergency repairs, in addition to offering a consistent level of service, the Transit 24 Service, offers late night opening, courtesy services and Ford Trained technicians.
Transit Finance allows finance packages, which can be tailored to suit individual needs and circumstances.
Customers looking for a brand new commercial vehicle can choose from the Fiesta Van, Transit Connect, Transit Courier, Tourneo Connect, Transit Van, Transit Custom, Tourneo Custom, Transit mini-bus, Transit Tipper, Transit chassis cab and the Ford Ranger model at Jennings Ford’s Transit Centre.
Eric added; “For this quarter, customers are being given the opportunity to take advantage of a substantial £1500 saving on the Ford Ranger Limited and Wildrak models, which is proving popular with both retail and business customers.”
In addition to the new model line-up, customers can also take advantage of a wide range of quality used vehicles.
Jennings Ford operates two Transit Centres in the north east, including Gateshead and Middlesbrough, in addition to car dealerships, service, MOT, accident repair centres and parts departments located at Gateshead, Stockton and Middlesbrough.
