Motorpoint gets set to open new store in Stockton-on-Tees in time for Christmas

16 December 2020 Press Release

Motorpoint is set open its new store in Stockton-on-Tees this Friday – just in time for Christmas

“We are looking forward to bringing some much-needed cheer to car buyers across Teesside over the festive period - after what has been a really challenging year for all of us with COVID-19”

The UK’s leading independent car retailer has been busy transforming the former Jennings Ford dealership on Yarm Road, two minutes from Preston Farm, as part of its ongoing nationwide expansion programme.

Motorpoint, which has a network of stores throughout England, Scotland and Wales, including a long-established branch in Birtley, County Durham, will finally welcome customers through the door from Friday, December 18 following a multi-million-pound investment in the five-acre site.

Motorpoint Stockton-on-Tees, which in a previous life was also a former Cooperative Wholesale jam factory, will stock up to 500 low mileage, nearly new cars and light commercial vehicles from 30 different manufacturers’, most of which are under three years old and with less than 30,000 miles.

Every vehicle is checked by experts from Motorpoint and comes with the balance of manufacturer’s warranty (or six-month Motorpoint Warranty) backed by the Motorpoint Price Promise. This means Motorpoint will refund the difference to any customer within seven days of their order if they find the same car cheaper from a competitor. As an added bonus, Motorpoint will also give the customer £50 worth of Amazon vouchers to spend.

Motorpoint has also made contactless collection standard at all its stores in the wake of COVID-19. This facility allows customers to adhere to the latest social distancing guidelines and choose, buy and drive away without any physical contact with a member of staff. This includes Motorpoint’s Unaccompanied Test Drive service where customers can test drive their chosen vehicle without someone from Motorpoint being present in the car. There is also the option to Reserve and Collect in store seven days a week or, if you would prefer, opt for free Home Delivery anywhere in Teesside.

Richard Start, General Manager at Motorpoint Stockton-on-Tees (together with Motorpoint Birtley in County Durham), said: “We’re absolutely delighted to finally be able to welcome customers through the doors of our great, new store in Stockton-on-Tees, especially just in time for Christmas. We are looking forward to bringing some much-needed cheer to car buyers across Teesside over the festive period - after what has been a really challenging year for all of us with COVID-19.”

The launch of Motorpoint Stockton-on-Tees will be supported over the coming weeks with a heavyweight regional media campaign across print, outdoor, radio and TV. This includes a chance to win £5,000 on Blue Monday in the ‘Miles of Smiles’ game live on the Breakfast Show on Metro and TFM.
