Read this month's mutterings done by Alan at our east branch in the Aftersales department.
~Best NEC show ever
Our presence at the annual Motorhome and Caravan Show at the NEC this year was rewarded by record sales and attendance. We would like to thank all the loyal customers who made the journey north and dropped in to see us. It was most welcome to take a seat and have a coffee with them.
~Open Weekend and Barbecue at East
Hot on the heels of the NEC show was the Open Weekend and Barbecue at the East branch. A more modest affair, but very well attended. The sun shone down on us on the Saturday, and was great fun. It was nice to see well-known faces mingling and chatting with everyone. Nothing like the runaway sales success of NEC, but in terms of meeting customers and generally having a friendly get-together it was a great success.
We will be doing more Open Weekends next year, to meet and get feedback from you all and give everyone an opportunity to have a casual look round. As the raffle proved so popular, we think we may get a bit more ambitious next time, so keep an eye out for that.
The new 2016 models from Lunar, Elddis and Coachman have already been very popular, and have given us a very wide range to offer new and existing customers looking to upgrade. The i16 Lunar range in particular is extremely eye-catching and modern.
There has been a huge surge of interest in motorhomes recently, and we are hoping our new range from Elddis will attract a whole new generation of people.
~Approved Workshop status for East
Due to our constant improvements, the East branch now has Approved Workshop status. We are always looking to build upon our reputation for a friendly and reliable service and the recent appointment of Paul Eager as Workshop Manager has already proved a move in the right direction. Plans are now being made to extend the workshop space at East and the inevitable recruitment of new staff to keep pace with the burgeoning sales and servicing.
~Open Weekend raffle
Congratulations again to Mr Miles of Edenbridge who won our Raffle. The prize was a very nice AutoSmart cleaning kit, which was delivered to his house after the show. When asked on the day which ticket number he wanted, Mr Miles apparently replied: ‘’The winning ticket’’. Glad to oblige sir!
