New website launch, a glimpse into the future of Optimise!

If you haven’t already, check out our new website design.

 

Launched last month, our fresh look website design has been introduced ahead of numerous updates that we will be making over the coming months. New design features include a more modern appearance with several navigation improvements - designed to help the user experience and make navigating around the website much easier than before.

 

This is the first glimpse into the future of Optimise Automotive (and a much needed update), as we start our launch of numerous new product ranges over the coming year, thrusting our services into new markets.

 

The website has been split (and will continue to be split further) into easier to navigate sub-categories. This will mean (moving forward, once we have completed the updates) that if you are looking for a Classic Mini interior, you will only need to click on “Classic Mini Interiors” and everything you need to know will be listed within a single sub-category.

 

We have already made a start with the “big split” updates - exterior trim, audio enclosures & merchandise are finished (so take a look at them, we have also added new photo galleries). In addition to this, we have also introduced further information pages such as “Seat Repairs” and over the coming months further information pages will be introduced, allowing you to find everything you need on our website.

 

It’s very exciting times here at Optimise Automotive, we can’t wait to take this journey with you.

WEBSITE DOMAIN ADDRESS UPDATE

 

We recently made an update to our websites subdomain address (on 16/10/2018) and until the transfer/update is complete there may be a few broken links throughout the website.

 

We are working to resolve these issues ASAP and we anticipate that it will take around a week to fully fix/test all the broken links.

 

In the meantime, the website is fully functional and working.

 

 

Regards,

Andy @ Optimise Automotive

Good afternoon TMF,

 

Following unprecedented demand for our carpet kits we have made the decision to launch the range prior to our Christmas dispatch cut-off date.

  • Please find the new range on our website here: LINK

The range is completely ready for launch (and ready for production), but we still need to sort out some of the photos and improve the descriptions (fingers crossed we manage to fit the photography in before Christmas).

 

As mentioned above, the demand for these kits has been huge (anyone who follows us on social media will have seen a few posts regarding the kits over the past few months) and you lot want them for Christmas... so, we thought we would be nice and launch them a little bit early.

 

Order them before midnight Sunday and we guarantee to have them dispatched in time for Christmas.

 

 

Regards,

Andy @ Optimise Automotive

 

P.S. We will be officially launching the kits in the New Year, so I will put a more detailed post up at a later date.

Happy New Year

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!

Bespoke Interiors

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.

MiniFair 2019

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.

New VW Transporter Services (+ DubFreeze)

It’s been around six months since we launched our first VW Transporter products (our range of interior panels) and since then we have been continually designing & developing new products & services for the VW market.

Over the coming months, as we grow further into the wonderful world of VW Transporters we will be launching more and more, including a full conversion service.

Yes, that’s correct - we are currently launching into full van to campervan conversions and we will be taking on complete conversion projects ASAP. All of the work (conversions, fabrication, cabinets and trimming) will be completed here at Optimise HQ - watch this space for further info.

If you are attending DubFreeze this weekend, please come along and have a chat with us about our new services and in addition to that, make sure you take a look inside our VW T5 show van.

DubFreeze at Bingley Hall, Staffordshire County Showgrounds on Sunday 17th February 2019.
