Belfast Telegraph - NI Carfinder - - News -

There’s no talk of re­ces­sion at Isuzu’s North­ern Ire­land operations. With three of their six NI spe­cial­ist dealers des­ig­nated Fleet Cen­tres, sales of the Isuzu D-max in the North are up a mas­sive 60% year to date. Isuzu dom­i­nate the pick-up sec­tor here, with D-max firmly es­tab­lished as NI’S num­ber 1 best-sell­ing pick-up in 2016. Pic­tured with the lat­est fleet de­liv­ery to a ma­jor NI util­ity is Peter Eakin of Eakin Bros in Claudy, Co Lon­don­derry.

“Ap­point­ing Fleet Cen­tres at the start of this year was a ma­jor step for­ward and has at­tracted many new cus­tomers” said Eakin “As well as hav­ing the full range of sales demon­stra­tor D-max’s, we op­er­ate ex­tended open­ing hours and pri­or­ity turn­arounds for ser­vic­ing and main­tenance, plus loan Isuzus to keep clients mo­bile and work­ing. It’s highly pop­u­lar, our or­der books are at record lev­els, and it’s been Isuzu’s best ever year in North­ern Ire­land and a sales record for each of the six dealers here.”

“Busi­nesses de­mand reli­able ve­hi­cles that are eco­nom­i­cal to run, have min­i­mal down­time, and rapid at­ten­tion when some­thing needs sort­ing – from mi­nor bumps and scrapes to tyre re­newal, tacho fit­ment and ser­vic­ing. Driv­ers en­joy a wel­come hot cuppa in a warm wait­ing area with Wifi con­nec­tiv­ity and business fa­cil­i­ties, whilst we turn their ve­hi­cles around. We have a com­pre­hen­sive knowl­edge of tacho and tow­ing reg­u­la­tions should clients re­quire guid­ance or ad­vice.”

“Isuzu’s war­ranty as­ton­ishes new cus­tomers – 125,000 miles and/or 5 years which­ever comes first. That’s dou­ble some of our com­peti­tors, and our pick-up is less ex­pen­sive to buy than most. Only D-max has such a com­pre­hen­sive war­ranty and still tows a class-lead­ing 3.5 tonnes” said Eakin “With Isuzu’s class-lead­ing resid­u­als Con­tract Hire de­liv­ers mod­est ini­tial rentals and se­ri­ously af­ford­able month­lies, with the abil­ity to in­clude full main­tenance pack­ages should clients re­quire. We use Lex Con­tract Hire – the UK’S sec­tor leader – which en­sures ex­per­tise, flex­i­bil­ity and cus­tomer con­fi­dence. Pay­ments can be monthly, quar­terly, sea­son­ally or an­nu­ally. Talk to any Isuzu NI pick-up Pro­fes­sional - the team are trained to lis­ten, then tai­lor fund­ing so­lu­tions for your business’ cir­cum­stances.”

“Tax­a­tion – cor­po­rate and per­sonal – is ex­tremely im­por­tant yet lit­tle un­der­stood. Isuzu builds and sells only pick-ups - so we fully grasp the fis­cal rules around com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles. There are sig­nif­i­cant business and per­sonal tax ben­e­fits from choos­ing a pick-up over a car. With the Isuzu range there is no sac­ri­fice in­volved – our flag­ship Blade of­fers be­spoke leather, heated seats, Blue­tooth, air-con, power seat ad­just­ment and elec­tric win­dows, power mir­rors and park sen­sors. Any D-max can be up­graded with Euro­pean satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion and re­verse cam­era, and a plethora of canopies and tow hitches to suit ev­ery need.”

“Isuzu has over 100 dealers across the UK, a third of which have at­tained Fleet Cen­tre sta­tus so there’s plenty of peace of mind for cor­po­rate op­er­a­tors. Call in and see us soon, our doors are al­ways open for business.”
