New franchise for RMB 

We're proud to announce our new Renault & Dacia showroom in Darlington is now open.

The marks the return of Renault to Darlington after a break of several years, along with its sister brand, Dacia.

Owner and Managing Director Robert Bennett said: “I am really pleased to take on the Renault franchise in Darlington at what is a very exciting time for the brand, which is now virtually unrecognisable from the Renault of the 1980s and 1990s. The brand fits really well with the franchises we represent.” 

The expansion follows on from the extension of the premises in Northallerton last year, as we took on the franchises for Renault and Dacia. The new showroom in Thurston Road displays six new top-of-the-range vehicles, as well as 60 used cars on the forecourt, plus a workshop that allows manufacturer-approved technicians to have access to the very latest diagnostic technologies.

Mr Bennett is passionate about providing customers with the best service possible, and RMB provides a one-stop shop for each of its brands, including sales advice, and after sales care to ensure that its customers drive away happy.

He said: “RMB has built its reputation on customer service and is currently the highest-ranking Toyota group for customer service in the UK. We like to view ourselves as the best of the best in the region that we cover and, in time, we would like to be viewed as one of the best operators for Renault.” 

The addition of the Renault franchise also means that we can offer cars and vans to suit most budgets, as well as possibly the best selection of environmentally-friendly vehicles on the market, whether that be the hybrid vehicles from Toyota, including the new RAV4 Hybrid, or the award-winning electric vehicles available from Renault.

The new development will provide opportunities for contractors and suppliers from the local area, which will help to reduce the carbon footprint, as well as jobs for about 15 additional staff.
