Motor Depot expands with fifth used car dealership

Motor Depot has acquired site in Grimsby

North of England used car dealer group Motor Depot has acquired its fifth site.

The independently-owned business has taken over the Godfrey Auto Parts premises at Grimsby’s West Coates Road and is rebranding it as a Motor Depot.

Once part of Dixon Motors’ operation, the location has capacity for 150 cars and is expected to be operational before the end of September.

It’s the second new premises acquired by Motor Depot inside 12 months, with the company having successfully expanded into Birmingham earlier this year to go with existing sites in Hull, Hessle and Scunthorpe.

Managing director Steve Butterley believes that the opening of new premises in Grimsby reflects "a natural expansion" for the company which first began trading in Hull 12 years ago.

He said: "Motor Depot has long desired a presence in Grimsby, but it’s been a question of waiting for the right premises to become available.

"The new site on West Coates Road occupies a prominent road side location and it will enable us to continue to grow our brand throughout the Lincolnshire area.”

Recruitment for the new positions will begin imminently.
