Northgate invests £150,000 in North Shields branch

Northgate Vehicle Hire has invested £150,000 refurbishing its North Shields branch so that customers no longer have to rely solely on the Blaydon branch to access workshop facilities in the Tyne and Wear area.

The branch has been transformed with a brand new workshop, service and maintenance site, as well as a refurbished reception and rental area.

Located on Tyne Tunnel Trading Estate, the refurbished branch provides enhanced facilities for Northgate’s customers, with the added workshop now offering servicing, vehicle maintenance and repairs.

With inclusive servicing and non-fault maintenance a key product feature of Northgate’s flexible vehicle hire offering, the facilities will play a critical role in ensuring customers in the North Shields area can conveniently access this benefit.

Michael Soulsby, workshop supervisor for the North Shields branch, said: “We’re all incredibly pleased with the refurbishment and have had excellent feedback from our customers about the improved services. We look forward to being able to offer our customers service and repair here at North Shields, rather than seeing them have to travel further afield.”
