Treat yourself to a test drive in a guaranteed quality used car, fully serviced and checked by expert mechanics in Carmaxx.
Trusted car dealership Blackwater Motors Group is shaking up Ireland's used car market with the launch of Carmaxx at its popular showrooms in Fermoy, North Cork.
Carmaxx has lined up a series of incredible offers for the coming weeks – bringing quality, range and big savings together in one place.
“We've only just launched but we've had people from Dublin, Galway and elsewhere coming and buying our used cars because they've heard about the quality and the savings,” said Niall Cotter, general manager, Blackwater Motors.
“We check our prices every day to be sure that we are competitive. We are confident that you won’t get a better deal anywhere but Carmaxx. We have a lot of sales from online, but we are also run off our feet in the showroom. The word is out there that we're offering great quality, great service and fantastic value.”
Carmaxx, of course, owes part of its runaway success to the 30+ years of trust people place in the Blackwater Motors Group. A highly reputed dealership that represents Volkswagen, Volkswagen Commercials, Audi, Skoda and SEAT, Blackwater has now also invested significantly to add new diagnostic equipment across an array of other car brands.
The group's state-of-the-art showrooms have to be seen to be believed. There are now 18 ramps in the maintenance wing, where the team of expert mechanics really are the hidden secret underpinning the excellent reputation of both Blackwater Motors and now Carmaxx.
Visit the showrooms at Fermoy, just off the main Dublin Road, to choose from hundreds of makes and models including Skoda, Toyota, BMW, Ford, Hyundai, Kia, Nissan, Peugeot, and Renault.
Carmaxx will offer driver’s extended warranties, low rate finance and unrivalled savings across Ireland’s top car brands.
Niall Cotter said: “Irish motorists love their cars and are always in search of a great deal. Carmaxx will offer excellent savings across a huge range of quality used cars, with new cars arriving every week.
“This is something we have wanted to do for a long time and we feel now is the right time to get started. Speaking to drivers, we know the importance of making a safe and roadworthy purchase without losing out on comfort or performance.
"The Blackwater Motors Group is renowned for its quality range and the value offered to customers time and time again. The same can be said about our quality used car supermarket. We are excited to be adding Carmaxx as the latest addition to the Group, as well as creating new jobs in an area that has been so supportive of us over the years.”
The Irish motor market has begun to take off after 18 months Covid-driven stagnation. The appetite of Ireland's newly vaccinated car-buying public for brand new vehicles, however, has been hit with an unexpected speed bump; production has slowed on many new car brands due to a shortage of semiconductor chips for their in-car computers.
“A lot of independent traders are finding it difficult to get a hold of quality used cars for their customers because of the shortage of new cars on the market,” explained Niall Cotter. “That will continue to be a challenge for people over the next few months.
“For anyone looking at buying a used car, our guarantee of quality gives us a distinct advantage in the market. While we won't be beaten on price, we know that our reputation is built on the fact that we won't sacrifice on quality. That's our guarantee.”
