Motorpoint plans opening of second online sales centre

Motorpoint is set to open a new online sales centre in Birmingham later this year, creating up to 20 new jobs.

The car supermarket has already begun work on the purpose-built centre on the site of its existing branch on Lichfield Road in the city.

A recruitment drive for sales advisors is also underway.

The 2,000 sq ft premises have been specifically created to meet demand from customers looking to buy their next car online. Motorpoint currently sells over 900 cars a month via its website – www.motorpoint.co.uk.

Motorpoint opened its first online sales centre in Derby in 2000.

Today, Motorpoint receives over 120,000 calls a year from people across the UK and Ireland looking to save an average of £5,000 of over 4,000 new and nearly new low mileage cars from 30 plus different manufacturers.

The Motorpoint website receives over 700,000 unique visits a month – equivalent to 20% of all visits to car supermarket websites across the country.

Jon Baird, general manager of Motorpoint Online Sales, said: “The continued success of our online sales division over the past decade has meant that we have outgrown our existing premises.

"This has been the driver behind our decision to invest in a second online sales centre on our site in Birmingham to ensure we have sufficient resources to meet the ever increasing demand from people looking to buy their next car from Motorpoint online.”
