The showroom covers 12,000 square meters in the industrial zone of Guadalhorce with up to 300 cars on display
Malaga now has the largest used car dealership in Andalusia. This is Carplus, part of the Caetano group, which has opened premises of more than 12,000 square meters in the industrial area of Guadalhorce with up to 300 cars on display. This is the second point of sale opened by the company in Spain; the first is in Leganés (Madrid) and was opened in 2017.
Paulo Moreira, COO of Carplus, said: “We have chosen Malaga for the expansion of our activity in Spain because it is a market with great potential, one of the main provinces for the sale of used vehicles. , with a booming capital , where many technology companies are setting up their headquarters, it is for this reason that this is a priority market for us where we want to position ourselves in terms of quality, and offer a exceptional shopping experience”.
The opening of the Malaga dealership comes at a good time for the used car market, which has seen increased sales due to delays in the production of new vehicles due to the shortage of semiconductors. Used purely electric models saw their sales increase by 44.2% in May to 1,125 units and between January and May they increased by 51.2% to 5,233 units.
In the new dealership, buyers can test their future car without waiting. Moreira said: “Our goal is customer satisfaction, which is why, in addition to the test drive, we offer the possibility of a premium warranty of up to three years. We check the car for 300 points and the customer has access to a stock of more than a thousand cars of all brands up to ten years old. After the purchase, if they don’t like the car after a week or a thousand kilometres, they can return it”.
Carplus’ stock includes 25 different brands with something for everyone, from compact cars and family cars to SUVs, city cars and sports cars. The concession can be visited from this month in Calle Esteban Salazar Chapela, 6, in the industrial area of Guadalhorce. Carplus also offers online sales. Its website offers a range of one thousand cars and a reservation service that delivers a reserved car to the customer’s doorstep.
