Please note after March 30th your vehicle does not need the MOT test carrying out, DVSA have granted all cars, vans and motorbikes a 6 month extension to the expiry date. This will help if you are self-isolating or following the Government guidelines and remaining in your house and using your vehicle as little as possible.

After consulting with staff we are operating at reduced capacity and will be clearing our outstanding jobs we have in whilst practicing safe working, during this time we will continue to provide a service for our customers carrying out essential repairs only so please bear this in mind when deciding if your vehicle repair is urgent.

If you do need your vehicle for essential travel i.e. work, attending to isolated friends or relatives, medical appointments etc. and do require it coming to the garage please follow our guidelines below to aim for zero personnel contact as follows;

  • Let us have all your details and discuss the work to be carried over the phone not when you drop it off, or via email.
  • Advise your payment method in advance ideally contactless i.e. bank transfer, PayPal, card, we would prefer not to take cash.
  • Remove any unnecessary items from your vehicle and separate the key if on a bunch.
  • The reception will be locked please use the door to the left into the showroom we have desk set up end ways on to maintain the 2 meters / 6 feet or more between us
  • Disposable gloves are on the showroom drop off desk please use a pair before handing over keys etc.
  • We respectfully ask anyone who shows any signs of illness to stay at home.
  • We use seat covers, floor mats, steering wheel wrap and cover the gear stick and handbrake, disposable gloves are worn by any of our staff inside a customer’s car as well as regular, thorough hand washing.
  • Although MOT’s have the 6 month extension you can still have it done should you wish, you can book online it links directly with our electronic diary so you can pick your slot without having to ring us. see – ‘Book Mot’ tab
  • If you decide to wait please bear in mind the showroom is not as warm as the reception so you may need your coat!
  • Remember if you are self-isolating, we can collect / deliver.

Keep safe and wishing everyone the best at these trying times.
