A year long project in the shape of a new Autosmart showroom for South Yorkshire and the team of Porter Trading was revealed at the 40th Autosmart conference.

The showroom which had been kept secret from the unsuspecting salesman Dan Pope had been used by Autosmart to showcase the new point of sale materials and launch the look and feel of the showroom of the future. The 12 tonne showroom not only looks great but also has new features such as air suspension and a crane.

James Bartholomew of Porter Trading who is celebrating 10 years as an Autosmart Franchisee this year has now added this new showroom to his growing fleet with it taking its maiden voyage to the streets of Rotherham this week.

James Bartholomew, Autosmart Franchisee for South Yorkshire says, “Keeping the secret of a new showroom from Dan had been really difficult. I had to stop myself from telling him about it every day and even stopped him from reading emails and talking to Autosmart HQ incase the secret accidentally came out. Handing over the keys to Dan who was taken completely by surprise was great and seeing him taking to the streets in it has been worth the year long wait.”

The new showroom has been given a facelift to provide customers with a brand new kind of experience.

Dan Pope, Salesman for Porter Trading says, “Going up to a 12 tonne showroom has many benefits. Not only does it look great with its fresh branding but it means that I can carry more stock, have two extra tanks for mini bulk products and have more space to showcase our products and support demonstrations. It does everything we need it to do. We will shortly also have a new onboard system which will help our customers choose the right Autosmart products for their application.”

The new showroom has already been a real hit with local customers. Dan continues to say. “Our local customers think that the showroom looks great and have been particularly impressed with the back door wrap. It is very realistic, in-fact a couple of customers have chased me down the street shouting to me that I have left my back doors open…”
