The last twelve months has been difficult for the used car industry. However, one garage in Melksham has been the exception to the rule and expanded their business into selling award winning motorhomes.
Audi VW Cars have been successfully selling used cars in the town for the last decade, and after experiencing its best ever six months, owners have decided to expand the business and start selling luxury motorhomes. The company are hoping to take advantage of the growing number of people who are turning to motorhoming instead of flying out of the country. The garage will stock two ranges, Hillside Leisure and Wildax vehicles, both of which have won national awards.
The company’s latest product is the Wildax Solaris, which retails at £42,995 brand new and it has just been named Motorcaravan of the Year by Motorhome Monthly magazine. The four berth vehicle is ideal for families and has bunk beds and a large seating area which transforms into a double bed. The model has been praised for having innovative design and a well thought out space saving layout. All motorhomes sold by the Melksham dealership will undergo a multi-point inspection, are HPI checked, benefit from a comprehensive warranty and they will be fully valeted before they leave the forecourt. There specialist workshop will also offer main dealer standards which will not cost main dealer prices. They have also been given the green light to carry out motorhome insurance repairs on motorhomes.
Operations Manager, Danny Hood, said “The company has had such a tremendous year we can afford to set this new business up with the award-winning homes. Our garage has managed to beat the recession thanks to the quality of what we sell, and the levels of service we provide. We’re an old-fashioned, family-run business, and we’re proud to be the only supplier in the south for both of these manufacturers.”
