Members of the Unipart Workshop Partnership Programme and Unipart Car Care Centre (UCCC) network are being urged to consider a new website design scheme.

Unipart said its service, which includes both design and marketing of the website, is available for a reduced fee of £450 + VAT until June 2010.

Pilot customer and chairman of the UCCC, Tim Ferris, who owns Ferris Garage in Truro, Cornwall, said: “We’ve had a noticeable increase in enquiries leading to a rise in jobs that we wouldn’t normally get.

“The increase in work is significant and we’re attaining several new customers each week. I’m delighted with the website in every respect.”

More than 270 garages have taken advantage of the new scheme, which attracts motorists through Google, Yahoo, Touch Local and Thompson Local.

Included for free are value-added modules focusing on car sales, vehicle rental and vehicle leasing services if required.
