Sparks Commercials has opened its first Used Trucks Centre as part of a £1 million redevelopment of its Swindon site.
The Renault Trucks dealer has carried out a full refurbishment of its site, adding a new drive-through workshop, used trucks and LCVs.
Sparks Swindon will sell all used models from 2.8 up to 44-tonnes with 10-15 vehicles in stock at any one time, as well as instant access to Renault Trucks’ nationwide stock and a smaller selection will be available from its Portsmouth site.
Julie Spark, director of Spark Commercials, said: “This exciting investment and development in our Swindon dealership allows us to significantly widen the choice of products and services on offer to both existing and new customers.”
Sparks Commercials has also recruited Lee Murrell, a used truck specialist, to launch and grow the business.
All used vehicles will be evaluated and graded using a three-tier system that is backed by Renault Trucks as well as a 96-point checklist and a minimum six months driveline warranty or MBI, fully serviced and prepared by Renault Trucks, 24/7 roadside assistance, unlimited mileage warranty options, repair & maintenance options, as well as finance and insurance packages.
Spark explains: “This all provides the operators with confidence, greater transparency and clear information on vehicle specifications and their origin.”
The business plans further investment for 2018 with a new ATF MOT lane and extended 24-hour opening.
