you go back around ten years or so, the Czech car manufacturer, ŠKODA, was seen as the baby of the
Volkswagen family. It was still very reliant upon its parent in Germany.
ŠKODA stands tall amongst the rest of the Volkswagen brood (Audi, SEAT and of
course Volkswagen itself) and it has class-leading products across the entire
wonder therefore that Pulman in Durham has such confidence in the marque that
it can open a brand new, £3million ŠKODA dealership on the Belmont Industrial
Estate, creating 20 new jobs. It’s cutting-edge stuff too with state-of-the-art
equipment throughout the building and solar panels to reduce the carbon
entire dealership certainly has the wow factor. The first thing you’ll notice
is the size of the building. It can easily house nine brand new cars on
display; you’ll be stuck for choice. Turn left and you arrive at the funky CaféDafté where you can enjoy anything from a cup of illy coffee to a glorious
lunch. Cakes, sandwiches and scones are available all day.  Taste the brand new menu which is gluten free
and it’s all created on site from as much local produce as possible.

back to the cars. Saunter around the showroom and you can inspect the Citigo,
Yeti, Octavia, Fabia, Superb, Rapid and Rapid Spaceback. Oh, and if you’re
thinking of buying a sporty, über stylish SUV, it’s worth holding onto your
cash. Put a note in your diary for around a month’s time because that is when
order books open for the stunning ŠKODA Kodiaq which kicks off at £21,495.
Deliveries are due in the spring, but you can guarantee that Pulman ŠKODA will
have one on display before then. Watch this space.
already mentioned the wonderful food at Café Dafté, but how about working off
some pounds or de-stressing in their Yoga and Pilates classes. There are
sessions, in partnership with MyBody Studios, throughout the day and evening in
a special room within the dealership.

to the cars. Of course, not everyone wants a new car. If you are one of those
people then you really should contact Pulman because they have access to
thousands of fully assured vehicles via their database. If you prefer to see
your future pride and joy in person, then call into Pulman ŠKODA and inspect
over 100 used cars on their spacious forecourt.
sure what you’re looking for? Granted, it’s tricky trying to keep up with
current trends and what’s available. There’s probably an ideal car waiting for
you that you’re not actually aware of. That’s where Sales Manager Ian Jarvis
can help. He and his team will talk through what sort of car meets your needs,
and then point you in the right direction. They’ll even sort out finance if
you’d rather spread your payments.

you want to give your current set of wheels a bit of tlc in the form of a
service or MOT, get in touch with Danny Martin. He’s the Service Manager.
Danny’s team can sort any make of car; it doesn’t have to be only ŠKODA models.
He can also take care of small - medium commercial vehicles. There are courtesy
cars available or, if you’re feeling energetic, borrow one of their bicycles.
you can tell, Pulman ŠKODA does things differently. If you overhear a
conversation where they’re talking about going to a car showroom where there
was also a top class café, yoga classes, courtesy bicycles and some cracking
cars, you’ll know where they’ve been.
