Company News

Simon Peascod, Sales Controller at Lloyd Approved at MINI Carlisle, shares an insight into what it’s like working for Lloyd Motor Group and gives us the low down on the benefits of purchasing a Lloyd Approved car.

Q: What first got you into this business?

I first joined the industry in 2000 after previously working in telecoms. I had friends who worked at Lloyd Motor Group and, when a job was advertised, I applied and was pleased to get it.

Q: What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I love playing golf, and watching the footy and horse racing too. But given the choice, I’d be straight off to the golf course.

Q: What advice would you give to someone thinking of buying a car?

People like to get a good deal, but I’d advise that you go for the model you like first. It’s no good getting a great deal if after a couple of weeks you find you haven’t bought the car you really wanted. Oh, and make sure you give the car a really good test drive so you can get a real feel for how it handles on the road.

Q: And what about someone thinking of joining the industry. What advice would you have for them?

It can be hard work and the hours can be long, but the rewards are great too. You get to know a lot of people and some become real friends over time. That’s the best side of it for me.

Q: Why should someone choose to buy from Lloyd Approved at MINI Carlisle?

We stock a selection of well manufactured vehicles from prestigious brands such as
Mercedes, VW and Audi. The cars we sell are good quality, often with a sporty edge. Our cars are prepared to a high standard and we take the time to select the right cars we know our customers will love. If you are looking for a specific model, we’re more than happy to help source it for you too.

Q: What benefits come with purchasing a Lloyd Approved car?

Lloyd Approved is all about delivering high quality vehicles alongside excellent customer service. We ensure all of the required background checks are carried out. I’m confident when selling a car it’s going to meet the customer’s expectation and we strive to exceed it; I know our customers appreciate that too. We also offer a 12 month warranty with all sales which offers good value for money. It means that you can buy with peace of mind that you’re getting a high-quality vehicle.

Q: What goals have you got for 2018?

We have recently moved back into our newly refurbished premises at Lloyd MINI Carlisle on Kingstown Broadway in Kingstown, Carlisle. I’m really enjoying welcoming customers to our new site, and look forward to seeing more of our customers, new and existing, enjoy their experience with Lloyd Approved at MINI Carlisle. And, if I can, I’d like get my golf handicap back down to single figures again!
