Kirby’s Auto Centre
NEW WEBSITE DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT FOR THIS CAMBELT SPECIALISTS, MOT & VEHICLE REPAIR CENTRE IN NORWICH
“Cambelt specialists, general vehicle repair & MOT centre in Norwich”
Kirby’s Auto Centre in Norwich is committed to ensuring that your car/van gets the best possible service and treatment for the best possible price.
The business has been a long-standing client of Visualise Creative and after creating their last two websites for them, the time came for the website to be updated to be fully responsive and reflect better the way the business has grown over the years.
What We Did…
We completely re-designed the website to include a unique background which we painstakingly cut out the top so that it appeared over the top of the header, to give the site a 3D feel to it. As the content scrolls up the background stays where it is giving the impression that the content is going underneath the background. We felt that this was a nice and quirky little touch to the design.
The home page of the website has a swing board graphic to make the MOT online booking pop out of the page and the services that Kirby’s Auto Centre specialises in are initially black and white and when rolled over are colour. This was all designed and developed to bring the page to life and draw the viewer to want to continue their journey through the website and so keep the ‘bounce’ rate of the analytics down.
To bring increased functionality to the site we introduced an online MOT booking calendar where viewers can request a time slot for their car MOT and Kirby’s Auto Centre will be notified of the request via email where they can then reply with a confirmation or an alternative date.
When Kirby’s Auto Centre moved to their purpose-built garage in 2011 they had space for an ‘Affordable Car Sales’ lot, so with the new re-design of the website came the functionality to include the display of the used car list available on the forecourt which the client can update themselves. The ‘Affordable Car Sales’ section is created with a different theme to the main website design. We also greatly increased the services section of the site, expanding the information on the services that Kirby’s Auto Centre offer to their clients, giving prices and increased information.
