Fraser Murray Car Sales, An Independent Family Business Supplying Quality Used Cars (and Vans) in Penicuik, and Nationwide, Since 2005
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
JULY 2020 - IMPORTANT NOTICE...... It is with very mixed feelings that I confirm our intention to wind up our family business. This year (2020) marks our 15th anniversary and during that time we have sold in the region of 3,700 vehicles. My son (Iain) has been with me for most of that time, and my daughter (Rebecca) joined about 4 years ago.
It’s been quite an experience, and like all businesses we have had our ups and downs. Sometimes it has been fun, most of the time it has been rewarding and all of the time it has been extremely hard work, with long hours and, needless to say, our fair share of stress. The majority of businesses seem to face ever increasing challenges and ours has been no exception. Overheads grow constantly while profits from sales diminish. The motor trade has changed significantly since we started and is set to change further over the next few years – all in ways that will make it increasingly more difficult for the smaller dealerships (like ours) to compete and survive. I also think that it’s fair to say that while COVID-19 has not caused our closure it has brought forward the inevitable.
We have not gone into administration nor do I feel like we have failed - now just feels like the right time (although it’s still a tough decision). All our suppliers will be paid in full and our recent customers have high quality independent warranties offering them on-going peace of mind.
The support and trust that we have received over the years from customers and suppliers alike has been fantastic and will always be appreciated. We have had good times and we have made many friends along the way. I am also extremely proud of Iain and Rebecca for all their hard work, and for all the things that we did achieve as a team working together – working with them was the best part of this experience.
Thank you so much to all our wonderful and loyal customers and we would like to wish you all the very best for the future.
Regards - Fraser, Iain & Rebecca
IAIN MURRAY - Valeting & Detailing - Tel: 07769 885773
Most of our customers will know Iain, and the good news is that Iain will be setting up on his own specialising in Vehicle Valeting and Detailing. Iain has done an exceptional job of preparing our own cars for sale and there is no-one in the trade that I could recommend any higher for this type of work (and I am not just saying that as his Dad!). Exact details to be confirmed - PLEASE KEEP HIS NUMBER.
(As for Rebecca and I - who knows exactly what the future holds? However, both of us feel very optimistic and excited as we look forward to new challenges........)
