Option 1 specialise in the repair and restoration of Lotus and TVR motor vehicles in their Stoke Prior based Bodyshop in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.

They have a dedicated team of composite repair technicians and they are well respected in their field achieving Club Lotus Approval for Lotus Body Repair and they are TVR factory appointed for TVR Body Repair.

Bromsgrove based Option 1 had an existing website which required updating and they were initially in talks with Yell for a premium website offering. However they took the time to explore the benefits of partnering a local web designer and having full control of their business and it’s web presence. They wanted to remain in the driving seat!

Automobile Vehicle Website Design

An initial meeting with Pedleyonline involved outlining the brief and website objectives and Option 1’s ideas and ambitions for a bespoke, high end, image-led design incorporating dynamic content, image hover effects and menu drop-downs. Other key requirements were a responsive / mobile friendly design, multiple image galleries, a latest news section, a full screen width design and layout. The emphasis was on style and quality.

The meeting was followed by the creation of a detailed web proposal which summarised the key points of the meeting and clarified our understanding of the requirements. It also included approximate costings and development timescales. Once accepted the job moved forward with the first steps being to re-create the Option 1 logo and produce a basic website mock-up for approval.

Meetings, phone calls and sneaky-peeks took place throughout the website build to consult and confirm that we were on the right road. High priority was the style and functionality of the website with a full width design and image hover effects providing dynamic content on the homepage. Option 1 were also keen for menu drop-downs on the horizontal navigation menu and of course responsive design meaning all aspects of the website, layout and functionality are available and work well on mobile phones and tablets too. Multiple image galleries use a light-box style premium gallery plug-in which provides additional functionality and pzazz such as an initial dynamic image ensemble and a rotating, jump-to image navigation bar presented at the bottom of the gallery. This is in addition to the standard light-box functionality where the large size image is presented on screen with the option to arrow forwards and backwards.

Like the cars and the workmanship at Option 1 the website content is outstanding – like a shiny sportscar! The content is relevant, unique, high quality, informative and qualified. We look forward to assisting Option 1 in the future to develop their website further with more great content and examples of their work. As this site has been developed using a popular content management system, WordPress, certain updates can be made by Option 1 independently and the blog section of the site is a prime area for additional pages.

Following lots of hard work by all involved the result is as sleek and shiny as any of the sportscars coming out of the Option 1 Bodyshop and something to be very proud of.

Finally, Option 1 have opted for an SSL certificate, the https website prefix means that the privacy and integrity of any data exchanged is protected. Implementation of the SSL provides website visitors with the knowledge that they are visiting a safe website. Premium hosting provided by Pedleyonline – after all, if you own a valuable sports car you don’t really want to leave it unlocked on the drive and you also want it to handle well!
