A Skoda dealership has acknowledged that we are living in a time-is-money era by offering to deliver Skodas to the doorsteps of busy drivers who wish to test drive one.
The scheme, launched jointly by Skoda Auto UK and Palmers Motor Company in the St Albans area, means that motorists can go for a try-out spin in a car without ever having to set foot in a car showroom.
Adrian Hewett, territory manager at Palmers, personally delivers the car to drivers’ homes or workplaces at a convenient time and provides the full retailer experience for customers whenever and wherever they choose.
Danny Palmer, managing director at Palmers, explained: "The full selection of vehicles to test drive is on offer and Adrian is able to price any part exchange there and then.
"He can then access the Skoda new car system which allows him to quote you not only delivery times but also order your car online and provide you with full financial quotations if necessary."
Such innovative initiatives are vital if car dealerships are to flourish in competitive times.
