First of all, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year - we are now open again after our Christmas break.
The start of a New Year is always a great time to look back at the achievements of the past 12 months and 2018 was a brilliant year here at Optimise. Highlights included our 10th birthday (including our Charity open day party), our launch into the VW market (namely the wonderful World of campers) and perhaps most importantly, we again got to work on your interiors.
Throughout 2018 we worked on some incredible projects - from complete nut “n’ bolt original spec restorations, to the ultimate show stoppers, we did them all.
Without the support of the automotive communities we would be unable to create the masterpieces of automotive excellence that we have become known for, over the past 10 years.
Thank you, to you all.
Here is to the past and looking forward to the future… 2019, we got this!
As the classic car ownership market continues to change, with fewer & fewer Classic cars being used daily and nut ’n’ bolt restorations becoming the norm, we are finding that more & more customers are booking in bespoke work well in advance, to ensure that the project can be completed to specific future restoration deadlines.
For example, we still have a limited number of bespoke slots available in February but we are already completely booked up for April and we are also only a few bookings away from being completely booked up in June.
In previous years, we are usually booked up well into the spring by the second week of February (many of you chat with us at MiniFair about current projects and book the work in, in the weeks that follow MiniFair), but we have never had advanced bookings 6 months away, at this time of the year.
Advanced bookings have been the trend for the past 6 months or so and (as mentioned above) as more & more nut ’n’ bolt restorations become the norm, this trend will only continue.
We will always do our very best to accommodate deadlines for bespoke projects and if you are looking to have work completed to a specific deadline this year, please get in touch well in advance, to ensure that you do not miss out on a specific time slot, delaying your projects completion.
We will be trading at the incredible MiniFair at Bingley Hall, Staffordshire County Showgrounds on Sunday 27th January 2019.
What a great way to start the Mini's 60th, see you all there.
Have a great day.
The Optimise Automotive team
