Volkswagen Van Centre Set to Expand as Customers Look to Improve their Lifestyle

Commercial drivers will be rubbing shoulders with campervan drivers at four new Volkswagen showrooms in the Greater Manchester area soon, as one of the leading commercial franchise owners plans to invest over a quarter of a million pounds in a new venture.

The Manchester Volkswagen Van Centre has traditionally dealt with customers who typically cover their vehicles with commercial van insurance but in a move that appears to be bucking the national trend, the centre is expanding to accommodate the growing trade in lifestyle vehicles such as motorhomes and especially camper vans. The centre based in Trafford Park will see workmen move in this weekend and spend the next three months creating new showrooms on two separate levels.

Owner Jim Hobson said: “The investment demonstrates our commitment to providing businesses, van drivers and lifestyle customers in Manchester with the highest standard Volkswagen facility, and our commitment to the city of Manchester is epitomised by the fact that all facets of the work will be contracted to local companies. The new showroom has a contemporary design and is in line with Volkswagen’s corporate identity.”

Visitors to the new showrooms will see a comprehensive selection of Volkswagen products including the Caddy, Combi, Transporter, Transporter Shuttle and the ever popular Crafter. Those looking for the more exotic offerings from Volkswagen will get the chance to test drive the all new Volkswagen California campervan, the Caravelle people carrier or even the tough, rugged Amorak, designed for doing the really hard work. The new showrooms will be open six days a week with staff moving up to a mezzanine floor to allow more space to show off the exciting Volkswagen range.
