Batchelors Motor Group is pleased to announce that its showroom in York for Suzuki is now open. This is its second Suzuki site in Yorkshire and Batchelors has been partnered with Suzuki for over 22 years, having first joined the brand in 1996.

Batchelors Motor Group is an ambitious family owned business. This year has seen the business open a used car centre in Ripon - Signature Motors, launch an innovate new website as well as introduce the UK’s first Suzuki Buy Online Solution which enables a new way of contacting customers via its video prospecting portal. Batchelors will also be launching a new rental car booking system in the near future.

Antony Denton, Sales Manager Suzuki York said ''Having worked with Suzuki since 2013 when I joined the business, it is a huge privilege to be entrusted with opening the new site in York. I am really looking forward to meeting our new customers and will do my utmost to ensure that their experience is memorable and enjoyable. We aim to create a warm and inviting customer environment where you will continue to deal with the same members of the Batchelors family over and over again.

Our company motto is TLC not PLC and we are committed to customer care. Batchelors has been established in Ripon for over 30 years and have helped our customers buy more than 1,000 cars every year.
