Our Suzuki Shipley branch has now moved!

Almost 12 months on from the announcement that we had purchased the property belonging to Bradford Motorcycles, we are pleased to confirm that the relocation of our car dealership from Shipley to Canal Road in Bradford is now complete. The property has undergone an extensive renovation project resulting in a much larger and improved space. The new Suzuki car showroom offers greatly improved customer facilities and also includes a 12 car showroom, a 30 car forecourt and a 5 bay workshop along with excellent and easy customer parking facilities.

Commenting on the move, our Managing Director Robin Appleyard said:

"The need for this move has been on the cards for some time. You could say we have been the victim of our own success! Not only will it help to heighten the company’s profile in West Yorkshire but will greatly enhance our customer’s buying and aftersales experience. As well as all our Shipley team we have also retained four members of Bradford Motorcycles’ staff."

Suzuki GB’s General Manager for Dealer Development Brian Hawkins added:

"Colin Appleyard was Suzuki’s first official car dealer in the UK and remains at the forefront of the company’s continued success. The move to Bradford is a logical step forward and demonstrates their confidence in the Suzuki marque as well as the potential for sales of our range of great value for money cars in the area. It also highlights the success of Appleyard’s unique approach to customer service which, without doubt, is down to the professionalism and commitment of their staff."

With the Bradford purchase, we now own all six of our showrooms which was something Colin was always eager to achieve. As a company we have invested over £2 million in making improvements to our dealerships in the past 2 years with further investments already planned for the near future. Other recent improvements include a redevelopment project at our Suzuki dealership in Keighley, due to be completed by the end of June which again is aimed at enhancing our customer's experience. 

We're going as far as to say our new Suzuki Bradford showroom is one of the best in the country! Why not pop in for a cuppa when you're next passing? We'd love to welcome you. Or why not take a look at all the used cars available at our showroom?
