Helston Motorists promised a revolution in car care

14th May 2010

Motorists in Helston can are being promised a revolution in automotive care when a £100,000 fast fit centre is opened in the town, creating six new jobs.

Justin Roberton, who already runs successful operations in Truro, Bodmin and St Austell, is looking forward to welcoming motorists to a new forecourt in Clodgey Lane, Helston.

The announcement further underlines the strength of the HiQ fast fast fit network, as Justin prepares to refurbish the site in time for opening before the end of the year.

The centre will feature modern, award winning branding and state-of-the-art facilities, even including a baby changing unit and a children's play facility.

Justin said: "The Helston centre is twice the size of our Truro site and promises to be very successful. It is situated on the main Helston road, boasts a car park of 30 spaces, and has its own MOT bay in place.

"The future is certainly looking bright. There will be new jobs created and we're all just looking forward to getting started in the town."

And in further good news for Justin, his centres in St Austell, Truro and Bodmin are also performing well following refurbishments or rebrands.

In Bodmin, turnover is up a staggering 52 per cent on last year, while Justin's other two centres are in a far healthier position than last year, each boasting an increase in turnover of around 10 per cent.

The HiQ network is targeting 70 store rebrands by the end of the year and Justin's centres provide a compelling argument to get the decorators in sooner rather than later.

Footfall is up in Cornwall by around 7 per cent, and Justin said that the power of striking signage and branding could not be overlooked.

He said: "Refurbishing our centres has definitely made a big difference. We spent some time without any branding whatsoever at St Austell while the work was being carried out.

"But literally overnight, people came in with their cars for repairs, and even visited to have a look at HiQ and see what we are all about.
