Westover Group Secures the Hyundai Franchise for Bournemouth, Poole and Salisbury
The Westover Group has added Hyundai to its stable of dealerships following the sad closure of Seward Hyundai, and is working hard to attract as many of the former Seward Hyundai employees as it can to provide the continuity of service and expertise that will be important to Hyundai owners across Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire - existing owners will see some familiar faces when visiting Westover Hyundai in Poole and Salisbury.
The growth of the Westover business in recent years in particular highlights the stability of group as both a supplier to and an employer of local people.
Dorset and Wiltshire based Hyundai owners concerned about maintaining their vehicles or keeping up with manufacturer scheduled services can now contact the Westover Group for assistance.
In Poole, Westover Hyundai will operate temporarily from existing Westover premises on Wallisdown Road in Poole, initially sharing a showroom with Westover Renault. Whilst in Salisbury, Westover Hyundai will operate from the existing showroom on Wilton Road for the foreseeable future. A purpose-built dealership for Hyundai is planned to be developed across the next twelve months in Poole.
A full range of new and used Hyundai vehicles will be available at Westover Hyundai. A Hyundai workshop will also be operational, offering dedicated Hyundai servicing, diagnostic and MOT work. Westover will operate a local collection and delivery service for existing Hyundai owners, so there’s no need for customers to leave home or work while their car is in Westover’s workshops.
“We were very sad to hear the news that a fellow local dealer group had gone into administration,” says Paul Dillon, Westover Group Operations Director. “It’s a tough market at the moment and whilst we empathise greatly, we are also delighted to be able to step in and help local Hyundai owners keep their cars on the road.
“Hyundai is a great brand with an exciting future. It sits perfectly within Westover’s current portfolio and brings another cost-effective option to our customers. All Hyundai vehicles come with a five year unlimited mileage warranty and roadside assistance – a reflection of the manufacturer’s confidence in their cars and their desire to deliver top-notch customer service. It’s a philosophy that sits well with the service ethic of the Westover Group, which is all about exceeding expectations.”
Billed by Which? as offering “… record-breaking five-year warranties, low prices and lots of equipment ... [with] products that now challenge the best that European brands have to offer”, Hyundai’s line-up includes a broad range of vehicles, from small city cars to family-friendly estates, MPVs and 4x4s. There is also a strong fleet offering.
Westover – which celebrates 90 years in the motor trade next year – currently operates from 22 locations across Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire representing some fifteen brands. The Group has grown significantly in the last two decades, gradually expanding the number and range of manufacturers it represents, incorporating several businesses over the years and thereby protecting local jobs at the same time as building the portfolio of vehicles it has to offer.
