The UK’s New Market Leader in Fair, Honest and Wholly Independent Motorhome Buying

SellMyMotorhome.com Flies the Flag for Simplicity, Value for Money and Outstanding Customer Service

sellmymotorhome

Worksop, Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom, January 19, 2016 — /EPR AUTOMOTIVE NEWS/ — The United Kingdom has a new market-leader in independent motorhome buying – all thanks to an innovative, simple and fully-comprehensive service package. SellMyMotorhome.com set up as a small business with big ambitions, though has already topped the table as Britain’s leading independent buyer of motorhomes and recreational vehicles.

Traditionally something of a complicated process, SellMyMotorhome.com has brought genuine simplicity and fairness to the motorhome selling process for the very first time. Quite the contrary to the traditional selling process, obtaining a quote and closing a sale with SellMyMotorhome.com is as simple as entering a few vehicle details online and letting the pros take over. The market has for some time been saturated with car buying services and those specialising in other kinds of vehicles – specialist motorhome buying service being a notable exception.

SellMyMotorhome.com has already earned a reputation for genuine excellence up and down the country, though has no intention of slowing down anytime soon.

Real Experts, Honest Valuations

“One of our experienced valuers will value your motorhome based on make, model, age, condition and mileage and any other relevant information you provide. As you know, motorhomes have many variations and we may need to call you with a few additional questions, so please do include your phone number in the box where requested. We will then send you the current valuation of your motorhome.” – SellMyMotorhome.com

One of the most standout characterises about the SellMyMotorhome.com buying package is how the team insists on only ever offering fair, accurate and honest valuations that are NOT subject to change. This is made possible by stepping away from the norm and refusing to use unreliable computer systems to determine vehicle value. There’s so much more to determining how much a vehicle is worth than simply asking for its licence plate number and hammering it into a machine. Instead, experienced professionals with comprehensive industry knowledge consider make, model, mileage, age, condition, modifications and more, in order to offer a quotation that’s as accurate and honest as possible.

By ensuring quotations are accurate, SellMyMotorhome.com is uniquely able to guarantee that the price quoted is the price paid, every time. Unlike so many rival services, there are no hidden fees, no admin charges, no collection costs and no deductions whatsoever to worry about. As soon as the price is quoted, it is set in stone – simple, effective and reliable.

Selling Made Supremely Simple

“Once you have received the valuation of your motorhome  we will make you an instant cash offer based on the information you have provided us with. If you choose to accept the offer, we will make the arrangements for collection and payment. We provide a free collection service and one of our experienced collection team will come at a time to suit you. They will of course inspect the motorhome, but if it is as you have described it to us, the purchase is guaranteed and we will transfer secure funds direct to your bank account.” – SellMyMotorhome.com

Simplicity also sets SellMyMotorhome.com in an entirely different league from that of its closest rivals. Originally established to offer a genuinely appealing alternative to the norm, the team has worked long and hard to create the total service package for customers. If a quotation is accepted, SellMyMotorhome.com arranges fast, free and convenient collection of the vehicle, anywhere in the United Kingdom. Payment is transferred at the time of collection and as much help as required is provided to ensure the necessary paperwork is completed in full.

For the first time, it really is possible to arrange and close a sale on any motorhome or recreational vehicle before the end of the day. To discuss a quotation or for more information on how to sell your motorhome the easy way, visit http://sellmymotorhome.com/or contact the team directly on 0800 072 3678.

Most Motorists Would Keep Quiet About Accidents, Survey Finds

A new survey from the Co-operative Motor Group has indicated that a majority of drivers would keep quiet if they collided with a friend or neighbour’s car by accident, although there was some variation in honesty between motorists of different age groups.

Of 2,000 people surveyed, just 24 per cent said they would ensure they told a friend in the event of a prang with their vehicle, while 26 per cent felt they would inform a neighbour. However, only one in eight participants said they would tell a stranger that they had crashed into their motor. A third, meanwhile, said they would come clean with a boss or work colleague.

The poll also suggested that older drivers were more honest than their younger counterparts, with 72 per cent of those aged 55 and over saying that they would seek to track down owner of the car they had hit regardless of who they were – as opposed to just 40 per cent of those aged between 18 and 24.

“Any claim you make could mean your insurance goes up when you come to renew your policy,” said Co-operative Group head of motor insurance Grant Mitchell. “It can be tempting to ignore minor scrapes or faults with your car, but it’s always best to get these fixed to avoid problems further down the line.”

There were also some differences in straightforwardness between drivers in different parts of the UK. While just 10.82 per cent of motorists in north-west England would seek to dodge the blame for a minor collision, this figure rose to 22.09 per cent among those in London – the area with the highest proportion of dishonest drivers.

Yorkshire and the Humber, the East Midlands, the south-east and Northern Ireland were also among the most honest regions, whilst their counterparts in the north-east, Scotland, Wales and the south-east were most keen to keep their heads down in the hope they’d get away with it.

Motoring DIY skills in short supply, survey finds

A new survey has indicated that everyday car repair skills are in relatively short supply among UK motorists, with many drivers lacking any knowledge of a range of relatively simple motoring-related tasks.

According to a poll recently conducted The Co-operative Motor Group, tasks such as topping up oil levels are beyond the knowledge of many UK drivers. More than one in three of those questioned – 37 per cent – said the main reason for their lack of car repair experience was the fact they had never been shown how to do such tasks, while a similar proportion of participants felt it was the responsibility of professional mechanics.

What’s more, two out of five motorists quizzed as part of the survey said they would be unable to change a car tyre in the event of a problem, with one in seven admitting to being unable to open their car’s bonnet. New drivers are frequently asked by examiners to demonstrate how to open the bonnet as one of the ‘show me, tell me’ questions asked before driving tests – which makes this particular finding all the more worrying.

“Many drivers feel bemused by even the most simple elements of modern motoring. They admit to being unable to perform tasks that can be the difference between keeping a car running safely and without major expense, and spending hours waiting for roadside recovery,” said Co-operative Motor Group managing director Tony Guest.

Despite the apparently widespread lack of car repair knowledge and experience among British motorists – 16.95 per cent admitted to not knowing how to top up windscreen washer fluid – nearly half of participants had experienced a breakdown whilst driving their current vehicle. More than one-fifth (22 per cent), however, said they had no breakdown cover whatsoever.

“Breaking down can be a stressful event and motorists would be advised to check that they have adequate breakdown cover to make sure they can get assistance in case the worst happens,” Mr Guest added.

Co-Operative Car Showroom Crowned UK’s Top Land Rover Dealership

Farnell Land Rover has won the ultimate recognition from its own supplier by being crowned Land Rover’s UK Dealer of the Year.

The Bradford-based dealership, which is part of The Co-operative Group, beat more than 130 other businesses from across Britain to win the highly-coveted prize at this year’sLand Rover dealers‘ conference.

Farnell Land Rover, located on Kings Road, Bradford, was one of the first Land Rover dealerships in the world to open its doors. The company has continued to refresh and update its image, and recently invested £1m in a new showroom, which opened to the public last January.

Jatinder Aujla, Group Operations Manager, said: “To win this award just one year after re-launching the dealership perfectly illustrates the excellent customer service we provide.

“It is also particularly gratifying since I am Bradford born and bred and very proud of my hometown. It was great to be able to promote Bradford on the national stage as a successful place to do business.”

As well as becoming Dealer of the Year, Farnell Land Rover also took second place in the Sales Dealer of the Year and Service Centre of the Year categories. In the latter, the Bradford firm narrowly lost out to the Leeds-based Land Rover dealership, also part of The Co-operative Group.

The Bradford company enjoyed strong sales over the Christmas period, with new like-for-like purchases up 60 per cent on the previous year. The increase in demand was partly driven by interest in the Range Rover Evoque, a recently-released British-built model endorsed by Victoria Beckham, who was brought in to design the interior of the vehicle.

The Co-operative Motor Group Launch Mobile Website and QR Code Application

A surge in demand from consumers for smartphone-enabled websites is behind an innovative, new service being offered by The Co-operative Motor Group.

The Co-operative Motor Group, which operates 23 franchised main dealer showrooms across the East Midlands, Yorkshire and the North West, has launched a new smartphone-enabled website at http://www.co-operativemotorgroup.co.uk/, which is packed full of content and allows visitors to carry out vehicle searches of new car dealerships and book services & MOTs from their handheld devices – all within a few clicks.

At a Google motoring conference earlier this year it was revealed that mobile searches were soaring, and that at the weekend smartphone browsing exceeded desktop searches. It was also predicted that by 2013 mobile users will exceed desktop for the first time. Nearly half (45 per cent) of Internet users accessed the Internet via a mobile phone in 2011, according to new data released by ONS in the summer, almost double from last year when the number stood at seven per cent.

The soaring interest in smartphones –now accounting for 37 per cent of all mobile phone sales – has also resulted in The Co-operative Motor Group introducing Quick Response (QR) codes on individual vehicles, which, when scanned, link consumers to additional content via iPhone, Android and Blackberry devices, and provide customers with a ‘silent salesperson’ if they are either shopping outside of normal working hours or forecourt browsing. Users scan the QR code in used car dealers with their smartphone and full details of the vehicle including mileage, service history and accessories is automatically downloaded and saved.

Alison Ottaway, Group Brand Development Manager with The Co-operative Motor Group, said: “We realise that not all potential customers have the time to visit our showrooms during normal working hours, so the launch of our new, smartphone-enabled website and associated QR code technology means that they can shop or research a vehicle and get full background details at any time – all via their smartphone or handheld device.

She added, “This is cutting-edge technology that is only now becoming popular in the UK, but over the coming months it will be increasingly used, and we believe will become the norm in a very short time span.”

Phill Jones, commercial director at Motors.co.uk, said: “Now is the right time for car dealers to address how best to optimise their websites for use via smartphone browsers. A really great mobile site can act as a clear acquisition channel to introduce new users to the desktop site.”

Farnell Land Rover is Leeds United’s Latest Signing

Farnell Land Rover will be putting its power behind Leeds United football club for the next two seasons, as the club Championship football team looks to make a return to the Premiership.

Officially the best-supported team of all 72 in the Football League, Leeds United will be looking to bounce back from the disappointment of missing out on the play-offs for a Premier League spot on the last day of last season, and the deal with Farnell Land Rover represents a major boost as the club gets set to embark on its 93rd league campaign.

The club will also be looking for success in cup competitions as a fitting way to mark the 40th anniversary of the only time they have won the FA Cup, when in 1972 they beat the previous season’s double-winning Arsenal side 1-0. Farnell Land Rover’s management and staff saw the opportunity to link up with such a well-loved club as too good to miss.

Company operations manager, Jatinder Aujla, said: “As an independent motor retailer with a greatly envied standing in the trade, Farnell Land Rover is very proud of its West Yorkshire heritage – and Leeds United share that same proud heritage.

“So we’re very excited about linking up with the club, and will be backing manager Simon Grayson – who, of course has a strong Leeds pedigree himself – fully in his efforts to lead the club back to its rightful place in the top division of English football.”

Operating from prestigious showrooms just off Hunslet Road, Farnell Land Rover sells the full range of new Land Rover and Leeds Range Rover vehicles, and always has a wide range of these prestigious British-built models in stock. It also has a team of factory-trained technicians who are trusted by Farnell customers from far and wide to service and repair their vehicles to the highest standards.

The Co-operative Motor Group Shows Strong Drive In £7.7k Charity Hike For Mencap

Staff from The Co-operative Motor Group have raised an impressive £7,700 for charity Mencap by hiking an exhausting 21 miles across the Lake District.

The Miles For Mencap team gained sponsorship to climb several ascents over 3,400 feet in the Fairfield fell and Kentmere Valley areas of the National Park, raising money for learning disabilities organisation Mencap and its sister charity ENABLE Scotland.

Participants from the car dealership company overcame immense fatigue to cross the finish line and were thrilled to raise more than their original target of £7,000. People were encouraged to contribute to their JustGiving fundraising page and responded in droves.

The funds raised will go towards the charities’ Inspire Me initiative, which aims to assist 20,000 young people between the ages of 16 and 25 with learning difficulties in leading a more fulfilling life; challenging the barriers that lead to exclusion and lack of progression. Both organisations are also supported by The Co-operative Charity Of The Year partnership.

Katy Robinson, Digital Marketing Administrator at The Co-operative Motor Group, said: “We are proud to support such a worthwhile cause and are delighted that our fundraising was so successful. Both Mencap and ENABLE Scotland help those with learning difficulties and their friends and families to lead the lives they want to lead and encourage them to aim high, which is admirable.”

“The hike route took our team through some extremely difficult terrain, which they tackled with determination, inspired by the challenges that people with learning difficulties face on a daily basis.”

The Co-operative Motor Group is one of the UK’s top motor traders, with 23 sites across the UK and 11 major motor manufacturers involved in its high-quality car dealerships, including Renault, Nissan, Land Rover and Range Rover.

The Co-operative Motor Group wins accolade for its re-branding

The new lease of life which re-branding The Co-operative Motor Group from Sunwin Motors last year gave the business has been recognised by a top national award.

The transformation of the used cars dealer was named ‘Best Marketing Initiative’ at the 2011 Automotive Management Awards, widely regarded as the motoring industry’s equivalent of the Oscars. Mike Austin, Group Managing Director, collected the award on behalf of all his staff from BBC News presenter Kate Silverton.

And the proud workforce of The Co-operative Motor Group know that the award was in honour of much more than the physical work done in transforming that group’s 23 sites spread across northern England and the Midlands.

The Group’s Brand Development Manager, Alison Ottaway, who had been in charge of implementing the project said: “The re-brand was about so much more than simply changing the car dealership fascia or the detail on car number plates.

“It was about communicating the Co-operative difference at every step of the way, with no marketing gimmicks, no hard sell, and no pushy salespeople – just outstanding customer service and the goal of excellence in everything we do.” She added: “This is a great endorsement and recognition from the industry for what we’re achieving in terms of setting the benchmark for what customers can expect from their automotive retailing experience.”

A Growing Vehicle History Report Company Takes The Next Step Into The World Of Television Commercial Advertising

The new ads will highlight these services as well as provide situations the viewers can relate to and understand the importance of these reports. “I’m very excited to see the commercial on television. We expect a great response and hopefully will get the point across that getting a vehicle history report on a used car is a smart decision. Creative Bube Tube has put their full force behind us and the results look amazing!” stated Joe Varkey, VP Marketing at CarProof.
