Showroom Now Open
I would like to start by saying how nice its been seeing so many of you back in our Service Department and to express our gratitude.
We can now confirm that Garage Showrooms in England are now able to re-open from 1st June. Whilst it will take some time for life in the UK to return to some form of normality, this change represents a major step forward, as lockdown measures start to ease. As well as our existing customers, many people will need cars to get back to work and there are some who are nervous about public transport and so are looking to buy cars, making it crucial that we are open to serve the public.
We are therefore pleased to inform you that from Monday 1st June our Showroom will resume full normal service, although the process of buying a car will look very different. We have implemented a number of safety measures including temperature checking, social distancing, hand sanitising, masks, perspex screens and one way systems. Customers can now take test drives on their own with the use of our trade plates under government relaxation of rules.
There will be some customers who are nervous about visiting us but we have been selling cars online throughout lock-down using click & collect or click & deliver. We’ll obviously continue with this service moving forward and continue to invest in our website, adding additional e-commerce functionality.
I wanted to close by saying thank you to all of you that have expressed gratitude, over the actions we have taken to support our customers through these uncertain times. Our actions have been driven by our desire to demonstrate that we are a genuine family business that you can ALWAYS rely upon for any of your motoring needs and we look forward to welcoming customers back into our showroom over the coming weeks and months.

All New & Used Cars Come Ozone Sanitised
Ozone (O3) is a type of oxygen that occurs naturally in our atmosphere and works as a natural sanitising agent. It kills most bacteria, pathogens and viruses, including E-coli, MRSA and COVID-19, and leaves treated areas hygienically clean. At the end of the process the O3 simply decays back to normal oxygen (O2). The process is safe and environmentally friendly.
