N18 Autos has expanded its business to the town of Ennis in 2020, having previously serviced Newmarket on Fergus since 2010.
The company focuses on the sale of high-quality used cars, sourcing from main dealers in Northern Ireland. All cars are history checked, come with a warranty, fully serviced and fully valeted with NCT.
Head of Sales and Finance, Anthony Breen, explains that the expansion has allowed the company to delve into repairs and has “opened up a whole new customer base due to high demand.”
Anthony states, “We didn’t have repairs before this year for reasons outside our own control. What we did in 2020 is, when a business opportunity came up in Ennis, off the Mill Road, where Ennis Motor Factors used to be, we decided to set up a second business for repairs, service, NCT prep. We sell wipers, oil, light bulbs, all those essential things. First of all, it’s for our own customers and for the public also, for service repairs maintenance. In Newmarket, our customer base would have been Quin, Newmarket, Shannon and the Sixmilebridge area, but this opens up Ennis and the surrounding areas big time for us.”
There are two staff members working in the depot in Ennis. Sean Kelly works as a fully qualified mechanic; his commitment to the craft comes with a total of 12 years’ industry experience. Cars can avail of a vehicle diagnosis here. Also, Keith Naughton, the son of Michael Naughton’s previous business, Ennis Motor Factors, works as the service manager. Keith is responsible for taking bookings and schedules as well as some diagnostics for cars also.
Anthony reiterates that NCT preparation is one of the key components of the business model employed at N18 Autos in Ennis and urges customers to make contact with N18 Autos.
Bookings can made by visiting the Newmarket on Fergus site or the new Ennis site. Contact can also be made through WhatsApp on 087-266 6429 or 085-854 9995.
“We would like to say a big thanks to all our loyal customers to date, we wouldn’t be where we are today without them,” Anthony asserts.
