JCT600 has opened an Audi and Mercedes-Benz car preparation centre in Chesterfield.
Formerly the site of Volkswagen Chesterfield, features of the new pre-delivery inspection (PDI) centre include an outdoor stock holding area for up to 600 cars, wet and dry valet bays enabling work on 10 cars at a time, and two indoor handover bays able to accommodate 25 cars per day.
Located on Sheepbridge industrial estate, it will enable the PDI technical team to prepare around 3,500 vehicles per year.
JCT600’s group fleet sales director Neill Richards said: “By creating a centralised pre-delivery inspection and car preparation facility in Chesterfield, the fleet operation has gained its own dedicated centre for Audi and Mercedes-Benz with the capacity to prepare around 3,500 fleet vehicles.
“With additional space, the latest equipment and a trained 28-strong team dedicated to preparing fleet vehicles, the new facility enables us to very quickly process and turn around vehicles, making sure they are ready for a speedy onward delivery to our customers nationwide.”
