“New vehicle leasing showroom opens in Brighton”
The night was well attended with over 100 guests which included Chairman Tommy Sopwith and his wife Gina.
Rivervale’s history spans some 60 years through Endeavour, their holding company. The name Endeavour is a familiar one locally, for years they held the lions share of Sussex motor trade activity predominantly through Ford in the early years and evolving to brands such as Mercedes and Porsche. Today the group holds two sites on Victoria Road, one with manufacturer representation through Mazda and MG, the second being Rivervale House where the leasing, used vehicles and after-sales divisions have been brought under one roof.
Rivervale’s new showroom is the first of its kind in the UK as they bring vehicle leasing to the high street. Traditionally leasing business’s transact business over the phone and internet meaning developing longstanding relationships with customers can be difficult. One of the USP’s of the new showroom is that customers deal with experts face to face with the added bonuses of being able to test drive and have their vehicle looked after in the onsite Bosch approved service and MOT facility. The company is ranked number 1 in their industry on review site Trustpilot, it seems that this formula is a wining one.
Vince Pemberton added “the business has grown year on year since 2009, the plan was to create a one stop shop that included leasing, a used vehicle division and an after-sales/service facility. I am delighted we have reached this point and look forward to taking things to the next level”.
