RENAULT & DACIA OPEN THEIR DOORS FOR FIRST TIME IN MEDWAY THANKS TO JCB PARTNERSHIP
WOULD-BE car buyers in North Kent now have the chance to check out both Renault and its value sister-brand, Dacia, ranges thanks to a new partnership with a South East based car giant, The JCB Group.
Renowned for their role in motorsport and cars that are engaging to drive, the French marque’s latest showroom is set to be a big draw and gives customers of JCB Renault Medway three times as much to love as it will join the existing Citroën franchise based at the site on 110 High Street, Rainham.
Budget conscience shoppers will be drawn to the appeal of Dacia, who have successfully created a range which matches reliability with value for money, offering the most affordable new car on sale today, as well as the cheapest supermini, estate and crossover on the market.
The Dacia Sandero starts from just £6,995, which is less than half the price of a similarly sized Vauxhall Corsa and Ford Fiesta, making it Britain’s cheapest new car by some margin.
The all-singing, all-dancing dealership in Rainham consists of a 8-car showroom with popular models from Renault range including the all-new Clio and Captur, as well as Dacia’s, on-site customer hospitality, aftersales and servicing facilities for both passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. And visitors can be assured of superb service as the family-run JCB Group have more than 20 years’ experience in the trade.
Kevin Lynch, JCB Group Franchise Manager, said “Our new showroom really helps to show off the fantastic range of cars that Renault and Dacia have to offer. With the forthcoming launch of brilliant new models like the zero-emission New ZOE, the ever-growing popularity of Dacia and a brand-new interactive customer waiting area, this is an exciting time to be a Renault dealer. We look forward to welcoming customers to our superb new showroom facilities.”
Customers can explore and test-drive any model, with a highly experienced sales team on hand seven days a week to advise on private, Motability and commercial purchases. And to celebrate the opening, customers can enjoy some cracking packages across the line-up, including 5 years warranty across the Renault range.
The opening on the 9th March of JCB Renault Medway is the latest move by the JCB Group which has been expanding is business organically and through acquisitions throughout Kent and Sussex in a bid to meet a gap in the local market and customer demand.
It marks the start of a new partnership between showroom owners, The JCB Group and Renault, with further representation of the brand in Canterbury by the motor group planned for Spring 2020.
Jonathan Bischoff, Manager Director of the JCB Group said: “The new Renault/Dacia showroom is a significant development for The JCB Group. We are very excited to be extending our portfolio even further, with brands that offer of affordability, great value and low emissions.”
The Renault/Dacia showroom’s offering is further bolstered by a wide-range of Approved Used cars, with the forecourt dedicated to 50 vehicles, while inside web-enabled touchscreens allow customers to search JCB Group’s 1,500-strong stock of used cars and vans.
The JCB Group employs some 500 people, several who are now working for the new showroom dealership. However, the launch has also created further opportunities and the motor group is encouraging applications from candidates for a variety of customer-facing, technical, and other roles.
