Renovated Liverpool car dealership doubles in size

A car dealership in Liverpool has reopened its doors after undergoing renovation work that has seen it double the size of the site.

The Williams Liverpool BMW showroom closed in January 2014 so that construction could begin. In the intervening seven months it has seen the base in Great Howard Street expand from 7,180 square feet to 13,692 square feet, meaning it can now house 16 vehicles. The revamp also includes handover suites for customers as well as interactive displays, Insider Media reported.

For any business looking to expand or improve its trading premises, it is important to keep a combined motor trade insurance policy in mind. While additional vehicles being stored in a larger showroom will need to be reflected in the level of the cover, it could also be worth considering tenants improvement cover; this can offer protection for the extra value of renovations made to the site, such as the new customer areas and display screens.

Commenting on the revamp of the Merseyside dealership, David McGoldrick, dealer principal at Williams Liverpool, said: "We are genuinely thrilled to have completed a major strategic investment in the creation of a state-of-the-art dealership to offer our customers a truly comprehensive range of BMW vehicles and an unrivalled shopping experience that makes buying a car as easy and enjoyable as possible."
