WEXFORD has its first fully-automated. 24-hour pay-at-the-pump service service station, with the opening of the new Maxol Auto24 brand on Trinity Street. The forecourt is Maxol's second 24-hour, fully automated service station in Ireland.
Maxol Auto24 in Wexford has six pay-at-the-pump fuelling dispensers, which accept payment by debit card, credit card and Maxol fuel card. Speaking about Maxol's latest forecourt offering, Brian Donaldson, Group General Manager, the Maxol Group, said,
'After a successful year of operating Auto24 Sutton, we believe there is now an opportunity to introduce this concept further afield and we're pleased to bring our second Auto24 in Ireland to Wexford. 'We have continued to invest heavily in the latest state-of-the-art technology to enable us to extend this innovative fuel solution to more motorists in Ireland. We always strive to bring our customers the very best service offering and these days that means convenience, speed and ease of use. 'Automated service stations offer motorists a number of distinct advantages - fuel pricing is reduced as there are fewer costs to pay, queues tend to be shorter as customers pay at the pump, and because the service station operates on a 24 hour basis, motorists can fill up at a time that best suits them. 'Our experience is that the automated pay at pump format is particularly popular for parents with kids in the car and also with commuters where time is of the essence.' While Maxol is delighted to be introducing its second Maxol Auto24 in Ireland, it said it remains firmly committed to the full service station format in this country.
