The new Honda showroom and workshop
A CAR dealership is moving from Ascot to a bigger centre in Bracknell.
Ascot Honda in Station Hill is due to move to London Road, near the junction with Broad Lane, later this month, probably on Saturday, April 21.
Gerry Darke, franchise manager, said: "We've outgrown out current site.
"What we will be able to do is to offer a fantastic new facility and we'll have more space and we'll be able to deliver a higher volume of cars."
Several of the dealership's 26 staff have been with the business throughout its 17 years in Ascot, and all employees are due to move to the new site.
Mr Darke said there are no immediate plans to take on additional workers but said: "As we grow then we will expand the number of staff that we've got."
The dealership is moving into a building that was previously used by Honda for developing engines for Formula One racing.
The building has been refitted and a showroom added to the front.
Mr Darke said: "There's a really nice customer area and a really big showroom. We'll be able to display and sell a lot more used cars.
"There's also a fantastic new workshop with all the latest equipment."
The dealership sells used cars of any make and also services any make of car, not just Hondas.
