Glamping Success for Geoff Cox

Bondholder firm Geoff Cox has seen sales increase by a third in a year, selling motorhomes worth £2.5m in the last six months.

This included taking orders for 15 motorhomes at the Caravan and Motorhome Show motorhome at the NEC, Birmingham.

In addition to the orders taken at the show, the company attributes its success to its new outdoor showroom at nearby Denby Pottery Visitor Centre which accommodates 40 new and secondhand motorhomes and caravans.

Now Geoff Cox is hoping to fuel further success with a new product to the market - a 'glamping' (glamorous camping) tent.

This Adria product is a mobile, modular tent that comes in a large box weighing two tonnes and is delivered on a low loader to a mobile home site or even a field.

Neil Cox, Managing Director of Geoff Cox, said: “We are the only Adria distributor in the UK to have one of these luxurious tents on display.

“It's for people who want all the glamour of a top hotel while being close to nature and without having to compromise on creature comforts.”

Two new ventures at Denby

Two new ventures are opening shop at Bondholder Denby's Pottery Village - a brand new farm shop and an outdoor showroom from fellow Bondholder Geoff Cox Car Sales.

The new Farm Shop will stock high quality produce including artisan bread, fresh cream cakes, charcuterie, olives, wine, cheeses and the best cuts of British meats prepared by Walter Smith's skilled team of butchers.

There will also be regular seasonal recipes from the farm shop team and home economists plus daily cooking demonstrations for those looking to try something new.

In other news, fellow Bondholder Geoff Cox Car Sales has rented space at Denby's Outlet Shop carpark and has opened an outdoor showroom which showcases 40 vehicles ranging from £10,000 to £100,000 top-of-the-range motorhomes.

Neil Cox, Managing Director of the firm, said: "We are taking the motorhomes and caravans to the shoppers. The venue is a busy retail centre, particularly at weekends and holidays."

Sales staff are on hand to show off different vehicles and their various features - some of which are considered luxury or state-of-the-art items.

Geoff Cox highly commended

Anyone in the motor trade knows that the Used Car Awards has for many years been considered an unmissable occasion which brings together small and large dealerships from across the UK to claim their coveted awards.

Sean Cantillon, General Manager at Bondholder Geoff Cox Car Sales was Highly Commended for the Dealers Dealer after he was nominated earlier in the year. Being shortlisted was a great achievement as there is a lengthy and guarded judging process preceding the award ceremony which included independent research, fair pricing and mystery shopping.

Being shortlisted just spurred us on to keep building relationships with our customers and maybe next year, who knows?

Sean commented: “The whole event was great to be part of and I am proud of my team and what we have achieved to get this far. Being shortlisted just spurred us on to keep building relationships with our customers and maybe next year, who knows?"

The awards ceremony which was held last week at The Brewery, a prestigious venue in London’s business district, received more nominations than ever before and the winners of each award were announced on the night along with the two highly commended firms announced in each category.
