M6 Motors Continues To Expand Business
M6 motors are doubling in size as they’re adding a new site alongside their current one. The new site will include a new showroom and offices and a new forecourt with space for up to 100 cars on display. This venue will be for sales only and the old building (next door) will be used solely as a service centre, after-sales and valet & prep centre.
Located in Kilgarve, Creagh next to Dolan’s Service Station, they bring a combination of unbeatable value and innovative vehicle sourcing to the used car market. They opened their doors in 2011, during some tough years in the industry, with the business growing year on year. They now sell cars to every corner of the country.
The Enterprise was founded by Alan Naughton after completing a BA in Business Studies at the University of Limerick. The original team of two has now grown to 16 permanent employees and one part time with over 50 years combined experience in the motor industry while also having a full workshop and qualified mechanics for car preparation and an after sales service.
The new building has been in the pipeline since 2016, with a growing team and a huge turnover of stock, the new space will fulfill all requirements. It will have five offices and an indoor display area with three cars on display within the showroom
“July and August 2020 were the busiest two months we have experienced in nine years of business with almost 300 cars sold. The used car market is looking very strong for the coming months as customers now see the excellent value in used cars especially in imports” states Alan.
Although, they sell cars to every county in Ireland and have people travel from places like Cork and Kerry on a weekly basis to do business in Ballinasloe, they have been encouraged that more and more people in the town’s hinterland are supporting local by keeping their business within the town as they can see the advantage of getting a good deal locally and a good after-sales service on their doorstep.
Alan believes that used car sales are at an all-time high as some people look to upgrade their car instead of going travelling or on a foreign holiday for example.
They have noticed that their online business model really helped them during the Covid period. Selling online has always been a big part of their business but during the Covid pandemic, the majority of their car sales were via their website www.m6motors.ie
All retail cars come with a warranty and an excellent after-sales service while also offering finance at very competitive rates.
Alan’s last piece of advice is “when buying a car, try to always stick to a reputable dealership so you can buy a car in the peace of mind that you are getting a good car at a fair price”.
They’re open six days a week Monday-Friday 8:30am-6pm and Saturday 8:30am – 4pm. However, viewings outside these times can be made by appointment.
