We are delighted to announce that fit-out works have commenced in our new facility in Carnmore, Oranmore, just of Exit 19 on the M6 Motorway.
Due in part to the growth of our business since the Coronavirus upended the world as we knew it, we now see the sales of Pre-Owned cars, which is the main activity of our business, as being the number one area of positive activity within the Irish motor industry for the next decade. The shift to electrification of new motor cars, making them less affordable to more and more buyers, will also add to the demand for used cars as will complications around importing cars from the UK post Brexit.
So while our initial plan was to include a cVRT testing facility within the new building that plan is now changed with the total building and site dedicated to our core business of the sale and service of pre-owned cars.
As a result of this decision the new dealership facility will hold in excess of 100 cars for sale as well as house a large service department plus other facilities including EV charging stations and a self service car washing facility.
Because we are an independent, non-franchised business, we did not have a corporate design or branding blueprint to work to for the finished appearance of our new premises. Therefore we engaged the services of a well respected branding and interior design consultant who has come up with the new face of Cunningham Autopoint. We hope you like it and we very much look forward to serving our customers from our new facility from January 2022 onwards.
In the meantime please enjoy a brief introduction to our new facility through the lens of the computer generated images below.
