It’s exciting times for a popular Peugeot dealership in Hastings after the family owned business was taken over by another family-run automotive group, Yeomans, following the retirement of the previous owners. The one-stop-shop had, until recently, been Motorhaven but it is now being rebranded under the respected Yeomans names. Yeomans is a family-owned business, running 16 dealerships along the south coast. But while the name has changed, the excellent service will stay the same with all of the staff kept on at the dealership. So if you’re looking for a new Peugeot or want a used car from a different brand then you should pop down to the centre in St Leonards on Sea, Hastings.
Yeomans, which has a number of franchised dealerships across southern England, has been selling Peugeots in Sussex for 35 years. They have brought in experienced General Manager Jon Tatnall to head up the Hastings dealership, which employs 25 people.
Jon said: “The directors of Motorhaven have retired and we’re celebrating that they sold to another family-owned company rather than a supermarket. It is business as usual, customer satisfaction has always been excellent and we’ve retained all of the same staff. We will be adding new and used commercial vehicles along with more non-franchised cars. We will continue with new Peugeots including Motability sales and the site has lots of space and easy to park on site, which we know is important.
We have had an excellent start. In the first month used car sales quadrupled and we hit target for new cars and I personally want to thank all the Hastings customers for their business. We aim to have a forecourt of up to 100 used cars on site. Later on this year we will be opening a new showroom and workshop.
Peugeot has also given its range a refresh with the French manufacturer’s models offering good looks, safety, performance and frugality. From the entry-level 107 city car through to the practical Partner Tepee MPV and dynamic RCZ sports coupe, Peugeot has a car to suit every need. Peugeot has also just launched its hotly-anticipated 308 family hatchback, which has been praised for its classy interior, low running costs and decent ride quality. All new Peugeots are sold under the ‘Just Add Fuel’ scheme, where customers buy their model and it comes with three years’ insurance, tax and warranty. They just add fuel!
