At Sytner Group, we take great pride in continually improving our dealership facilities. As part of a plan to re-invest over £50m on relocations and property enhancements in 2017, work recently began on one of the biggest projects that we have ever undertaken – the relocation of BMW and MINI Sheffield.
Currently situated in the heart of the city, Sytner Sheffield BMW is one of our oldest and smallest dealerships but, early in 2017, the business shall relocate to a new facility which will not only be the largest within the Sytner group but also the largest BMW dealership in the UK. Located just one mile from the fantastic Meadowhall shopping centre, the new facility will allow us to offer customers an incredibly special experience each and every time that they visit the dealership.
Boasting over 200,000sq ft of indoor space, the vast 3-storey dealership will become the new home of both BMW and MINI in Sheffield. Within the building, customers will be able to explore the stunning range of cars on offer within the 150 car BMW showroom and the 50 car MINI showroom.
Whilst exploring the incredible showroom spaces on offer, our friendly and knowledgeable Sales & Genius teams will be around to help provide customers with all of the information and advice that you could ever need when discovering the fantastic cars available from both brands.
For those customers who are visiting for aftersales services, a personal welcome, out of the weather, in the new 4-lane Drive-in Service Reception area is just the beginning. With their car quickly signed in, customers shall be guided into a stunning service waiting area in which they will be able to take advantage of free WiFi, delicious hot beverages and freshly made snack from the 'Isetta Bar' cafe - all of which will be provided by the dedicated hospitality team.
As well as a 30 bay workshop with three MOT test bays, Sytner Sheffield will also benefit a state-of-the-art bodyshop; all of which will be fitted with all of the latest tools and equipment to ensure that our highly skilled BMW and MINI technicians can offer not only the best service possible but also a large increase in the number of booking slots available to our customers.
In addition to our continuous efforts in delivering the very best customer service available, we at Sytner Group are also incredibly passionate about the people that work for us – managing to achieve ‘Sunday Times Best Company to Work For’ status for seven years in a row. To help us to continue to maintain and improve this performance, facilities for our team members have been carefully planned to create an outstanding working environment. This new Sytner development allows us to not only retain over 170 careers within BMW and MINI but also creates an opportunity to increase the number of staff at the dealership dramatically, with a further 20 jobs and a host of graduate and trainee opportunities expected to be created in the coming months after opening.
