The exciting news we have been teasing you about since the end of last year is that Mustang Maniac has moved. OK, so it’s only into the unit next door, the entrance to Mustang Maniac is now to the right of the main roller door not the left. You can’t miss it, honestly you can’t. Now there is no more going up stairs to the office, instead a nice customer friendly ground floor reception area.
As far as anybody is concerned nothing has changed for the Mustang Maniac business, except that we now have a new customer area and storage locations.
The address is still exactly the same, but Adam explains that he has taken (Mustang Maniac) to “the next level” ready for his next business plans.
There is a new reception/show room, a nice place to relax, chilled refreshments and a display area. This was a huge task over the recent holidays and is still being updated, with lots more stuff to go on the walls as yet. We have a couple up so far.
There has been wild rumours that the first thing Adam got to work in the new offices was the card machine for transactions! 😀 We can neither confirm, nor deny that this was true.
The broadband, 24/7 CCTV recording, full monitored premises alarm, individual lockable storage area doors, keycoded door and guard dog patrol areas were done the same day opened the front door as it were. The locksmith was a busy boy that day.
New front signs going up. Thanks to Linards for getting them ready at such short notice.
The reception and seating area has a TV showing some project works of Mustang Maniac or the original Mustang adverts (thanks Chris). Adam now has customer information support screen located by Morgan to show any walk-in customers the parts they require before they are picked from stock. A small point, but nice touch for the plethora of combinations on the Mustangs.
Morgan’s working in her reception area where she can deal with call in customers, bookings for the workshops, prep and dispatch for WebShop orders, now all from a single place.
Seating is provided by Mustangs of course. Adam and Yogi talking to a customer while he was watching the wall mounted TV of our restoration projects.
Adam’s office is now at the back where he can work without being disturbed by the busy WebShop orders, he can still have a private conversation with the customers if needed. Yogi pop in to his desk where he can log the parts he has used, while Adam can invoice and quote for the jobs and manage his business.
Adam’s office decor, (so far):
The all important stock:
Morgan has done a great job and organised the stock into multiple rooms with colour coding and all cross referenced. The quick turn over parts are in the rooms directly behind her.
The rest of the stock, brake parts, electrical, lighting, door parts, emblems, hardware and fixings, transmission, and suspension parts like shocks etc. are organised based on car area location and colour coded on the upper floor. Larger body work parts like engines, gearboxes, axles, exhausts, body panels, seats, carpets, glass, wheels, tyres etc. are still stored in secure units at the yard. These pics are only some of the stock that has been transferred over at the moment, with more to follow. They may look the same boxes, but we can assure you they are all different crate locations.
Morgan has developed a mobile electronic method for efficiently picking the parts and works very well, we snapped this pic of her getting an order ready for customer call-in collection.
On seeing our new location, a very good friend of ours donated this rare Chinese metal toy for our display case. Thanks to GW for the donations, we appreciate it.
