Motorpoint has a comprehensive network of sites located in Birmingham, Birtley, Burnley, Castleford, Chingford, Derby, Glasgow, Newport, Oldbury, Peterborough, Sheffield and Widnes. Whether you want advice on the car that best suits your needs; need to talk in more detail about a particular vehicle you’ve seen or would simply like a part exchange valuation, our friendly, professional staff are available seven days a week to answer your queries.

With an increased customer base, Motorpoint’s head office in Derby accessed the need for additional workshop space, to test and prepare cars before they go on sale to the general public.

With limited space at Motorpoint’s Peterborough customer branch, a new workshop has been built just around the corner. Having previously had a range of garage equipment from GEMCO Equipment Ltd in the past, GEMCO was Motorpoint’s first choice for new garage equipment, this coupled with excellent customer service from local Field Sales Manager Radley Knight meant for a smooth and easy installation.

The impressive new facility includes a workshop to test cars before they go to market, a photography studio, and spray booth facility.

With a wide range of cars coming through the door on a daily basis, when deciding on new garage equipment it was essential that Motorpoint got the correct equipment for the job, first time. From the highly versatile Bradbury Four Post Wheel Alignment Lift, GEMJB2M 2 tonne manually operated jacking beam fitted alongside the Bradbury WCA3DHD 3D Wheel Alignment Machine. Through to the six Bradbury H2403G 4 .0 Tonne Two Post Lifts (that benefit from the addition of 4 x 100mm high lift pads for each lift), and exhaust extraction system, waste oil system and HPC Compressors (one for the workshop, one for the bodyshop). The equipment fitted ensures that various car faults can be fixed quickly and efficiently with a number of mechanics working on cars at once.

Speaking on the new site Motorpoint’s Ben Wall says “Beyond the equipment fitted the key reason for coming back to GEMCO is the customer service received throughout the project from the initial phone call to the sales office, through to site visits from local Field Sales Manager ‘Radley Knight’, and the quick and efficient service of the installations team.”
