Motorpoint, the UK’s leading independent car retailer, has opened for business in Manchester.

The retailer has transformed the former Mercedes garage on Ashton Old Road as part of its ongoing nationwide expansion programme.

“It’s brilliant to finally be opening our doors to the public,” explained Jordan Dean, Head of Retail Operations in Manchester “and be able to give customers the opportunity to experience for themselves our award-winning combination of choice, value, service and quality.

“The Motorpoint brand is already well-established in the wider region thanks to our existing network of branches in the North-West. We’re looking to build on that awareness further with our drive to make car buying easy in Manchester.  That could be buying in store, reserving online or having your new vehicle brought to your home.”

Motorpoint Manchester will stock 150 low mileage, nearly new cars and light commercial vehicles from 30 different manufacturers’. Most vehicles are under four years old and with less than 30,000 miles. It is open seven days a week, including 8pm weekdays. It also offers free parking, Wi-Fi and a customer café serving a selection of hot and cold food and drinks.

Every vehicle onsite is checked by experts from Motorpoint and comes with the balance of manufacturer’s warranty, or a 3 month Motorpoint warranty. All are backed by the Motorpoint Price Promise. This means Motorpoint will refund the difference to any customer within seven days of their order if they find the same car cheaper from a competitor. As an added bonus, Motorpoint will also give the customer £50 worth of Amazon vouchers to spend. Furthermore, every purchase, whether it is instore or online, is backed by a 14-day money back guarantee.

The launch of Motorpoint Manchester will be supported with a heavyweight regional media campaign across print, outdoor, radio, TV, press and digital.
