COVID – 19 Announcement by Tony Denton

As you will be aware, the Government has announced a third strict national lockdown. Whilst we are fully complying with the trading restrictions, we are open although not quite as normal. Nevertheless our aim is to keep you on the road.

All service, repair and MOT's will be need to be pre-booked and will be conducted by appointment only.

There are no other major alterations to our service and parts operations and they will continue as normal. You will be able to book a service, repair or MOT as usual.

Collection and delivery remain available or you will be able to drop your car off and put your keys in a designated area and if needed you can pick up a courtesy car too. Don't worry our friendly team will explain everything when you book. You will not be able to access our service reception due to our COVID Secure procedures. Payment and paperwork will all be in a contactless manner.

Unlike previous lockdowns, MOT expiry dates have not been extended. Therefore, to avoid heavy fines and potentially driving illegal cars. we recommend booking MOTs as usual, at your convenience.

At this time we are not able to provide a lift back home and the customer lounge and waiting area is not available. If there is anything we can do to help you specifically, please let us know.

Our workshops are currently closed on Saturdays.

Our showrooms and used car displays will be closed. However, our teams will be in store or working from home ready to answer the phone, send videos, Livechat and deal with all of your questions.
