COVID-19 Announcement

Customer Announcement

Following the statement from the Prime Minister on Saturday 31st October, we would like to let you know how we will be operating to keep you moving whilst ensuring we follow the Government guidelines and keep our colleagues, customers, and communities safe.

After Sales

As they are classified as “essential services”, from 5th November, our after-sales departments will continue to operate as normal, providing servicing, MOT, repairs, and parts sales, with enhanced safety and social distancing measures in place.

New & Used Car Sales

Whilst our showrooms and used car forecourts will be closed to the public from 5th November and throughout the lockdown period, our sales departments will continue to operate remotely, dealing with all sales enquiries. They will be on hand to help you through the whole purchase process, sending videos, finding the right car for you, and arranging collection/delivery. You will have the choice of either collecting your new vehicle at one of our designated click & collect areas or using our home delivery service. All carried out with COVID-secure practices in place.

Whether visiting our dealership for an after-sales appointment or a vehicle collection during the lockdown period, please take care to follow the guidance below.

To further protect the safety of our customers and staff, we have now introduced the additional precaution of temperature checks for all staff and visitors to our dealerships.

 All customers will have their temperature checked using a non-contact thermometer, and anyone recording a temperature of 38 degrees celsius or above will, unfortunately, be required to reschedule their appointment and return at a later date.


All customers will be required to check-in to NHS Track & Trace, by scanning the QR code

We hope all customers will understand the need to prioritise safety and wellbeing at this present time.
