Well there are a number of reasons. We have outgrown the building, particularly our Service department. This is a real testament to the excellent levels of service we give to customers, who keep returning time and time again - who also recommend us to family and friends. As much as we would have liked to stat put and extend the building, this was not an option.
You will probably know that our site near the New York Football Stadium has been flooded 3 times over the years and we don't expect this situation to get any better. Over the years this has had a huge impact on us financially, not the mention the inconvenience to our customers.
We aren't going far, a small hop, skip and jump, just 5 miles up the road to Wickersley. The new site, on Bawtry Road (opposite Wickersley School and Sports College). The site is a much bigger than our current site, with a large car park to the rear, a much bigger workshop and a fabulous showroom with office space, all of which will allow me and the team to look after more customers in the true Burrows style.
Our 'coming soon' signage is up! Have you spotted this already on Bawtry Road?
At the moment we have an empty showroom, service area and workshop space. The work has begun to turn this space into the new home of Burrows Toyota.
This marks the start of full refurbishment. We have a trades team on site painting our new workshop floor and white lines to mark the parking bays - soon be filled with customer vehicles...
Our new home has its name on show, loud and proud.
Our showroom furniture and accessories are in their new home, now we are just waiting for the go-ahead to open to our customers...
