Exciting new feature for KWE’s website: what’s in our workshop now?

We’ve added a brand new feature to our website this week, allowing you the opportunity to follow the progress of cars currently being resurrected in our workshop.

Simply follow the ‘work in progress’ link from our home page and you’ll be able to share the owners’ enjoyment and anticipation as you view each stage of the cars’ transformation.

Before and after

As each project takes shape, we’ll describe what we are doing and take plenty of images so you can watch as the cars are given a new lease of life.

We hope you enjoy this new ‘window’ into our workshop here at KWE.

Customer survey leads to improvements

Earlier this year we asked you to take part in a customer opinion survey to find out how we could improve the services we offer here at KWE Cars. 157 of you took the time to tell us how we are doing and what we could improve. It was an amazing response and we are genuinely very grateful for all the feedback.

We’ve used the information from the survey to develop a strategy to help grow the business and improve our marketing. Those of you who are regular visitors to our website will see that we’ve already made a start. Our new website went live a few weeks ago and, as a direct result of the feedback, we’ve started to offer a few Jaguar XJS cars for sale. As well as selling classic cars we’ve worked on, we’ll also be highlighting good examples that catch our eye from other online sources – all good excuses to keep coming back to the website!
