COVID-19: We're open for Sales and Aftersales

Sales: Our showroom and used car forecourts are now back open. We request that all customers contact us to make an appointment. This is to ensure that all customers are handled in a professional and covid safe manner. We are currently, and will remain open online and over the phone with click and collect and home delivery options available*

Aftersales: Our workshops are open for servicing, repairs and MOTs via appointment only. Collection and delivery options are available**

While our workshops and sales departments are open, in this current pandemic, the safety of both our customers and our staff remains our priority. In these current circumstances, we have taken a number of steps to find a new normal so that we can keep things moving while keeping everyone safe. We will be regularly reviewing and updating these steps in line with government and scientific advice. Our workshops and showrooms are clearly signposted to ensure compliance with the recommended social distancing regulations. We would kindly ask customers to respect these whilst visiting our premises.

For those wishing for the extra convenience of buying a car at home we continue to offer our safe and secure click and collect service*.


Our Wigan locations remain closed. Additionally, our Volkswagen Liverpool showroom is closed for refurbishment but we are still able to offer test drives from outside the dealership alongside our click and collect offering. You can find more details of the opening hours of different departments and our contact details on our locations page.

General guidance whilst visiting the Dealership

Please make an appointment first

We will operate a strict 2-metre social distancing policy with clear communication and markers on the floor to aid this. Showrooms have been rearranged to allow for more open space with a more spread out waiting area.

When visiting the showroom, please come with a maximum of one family member. For workshop appointments, please come alone where possible.

Hand sanitiser will be available in all of our dealerships. We will unfortunately not be offering handshakes but will greet you in our normal friendly manner

Cars and open areas will be cleaned more regularly. Cars will be locked and we are asking customers to keep a distance from and not to touch cars or displays.

We will be limiting the number of people in the dealership. No refreshments will be served in the dealership, but you are welcome to bring your own.

All of our staff are temperature checked daily and this service is also available to customers.

Customers must wear Face Coverings within our premises. This includes customers who are in our showrooms, service reception and waiting areas, and at our parts counters. Please bring your own face covering and put it on before coming inside.

Following the more recent government announcement, all staff will also be wearing face coverings when in a customer facing area. This applies, even when they are positioned behind a screen.

For more information on Face Coverings, the law and exceptions, see the Government Website


New and Used Sales enquiries

We are available online, via email and live chat, and the phone to help with any enquiries. You can also make an appointment to visit the showroom.

We can supply a personalised recorded or a live, interactive video tour of the vehicle you’re interested in. If you wish to part-exchange your car, by electing for the live video tour you will also be able to show us your vehicle and give us an opportunity to provide a guide valuation.

Showrooms and forecourts are open, although, so we can control the number of people in the showroom, please make an appointment before you attend. Those without an appointment may be asked to wait in their car until there are less people in the showroom. If possible, please attend your appointment alone. When visiting the showroom, please follow the "General guidance whilst visiting the Dealership" above.

Test drives are available, via appointment only. These will be unaccompanied to ensure social distancing. This will require further security checks prior to the vehicle being test driven so will only be offered if booked in advance. The vehicle will be cleaned and sanitised before and after the test drive and will have protective seat and steering wheel covers throughout the test drive. Due to the extra insurance requirements, we cannot guarantee that performance vehicles will be availabe to test drive.

In the current environment, for all test drive requests we prefer to have 24 hours' notice to allow for preparation, cleaning and sanitisation of the vehicle. We are able to fast track appointments in a shorter timescale subject to determining the availability of the vehicle and staff on site.

Purchasing a New or Used car

If looking at a new or used car, you can reserve it online for a £99 refundable deposit. We will then hold this car to arrange a suitable time to view if required.

If you wish to proceed to the purchase of your desired car all documents, including finance agreements, can be signed remotely as part of our "click and collect" process*. This may be able to all be done electronically or via the post without the need for face to face contact.

Alternatively, you do have the option to purchase a vehicle by attending our showroom but all precautions detailed on this page will be followed. Where possible we prefer payments to be made electronically rather than in cash.

Collection of a New or Used vehicle

Whether bought online or at the showroom, you have the option to collect your car from outside the showroom. To keep contact to a minimum, we request that, wherever possible, one individual collects the vehicle.

Alternatively, you have the option for us to deliver to your home*


When being either collected from the Dealership or delivered, we will follow the appropriate hygiene measures and sanitise the car thoroughly, placing protective covers on the most touched areas and provide the key in a plastic bag.

Servicing, repairs and MOTs​

All staff in the workshop will be wearing correct Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) – gloves, masks and coverings whilst working on your car.

So we can manage the flow of customers, we are asking all customers to make an appointment online or via the phone prior to your visit. Contact details can be found on our website by selecting the relevant location here.

We are pleased to be offering a contactless delivery and collection of your vehicle**.

For customers dropping off and collecting their cars, we would request that you come alone. We will not be able to then drop you off elsewhere.

We will be offering a reduced number of courtesy cars subject to availability. This is to allow for additional cleaning.

Your vehicle will be cleaned and sanitised on the way in and way out of the workshop and have protective covers fitted on the most touched areas such as steering wheels, seat covers etc​.

Your key will also be sanitised and returned in a plastic bag. To enable us to do this, we will request you to remove your car key from any other keys or key rings before you hand it to us.

In terms of any relevant paperwork and invoicing for the work carried out, we will, wherever possible, supply this electronically. For payments, where possible, we prefer amounts to be paid via credit or debit card but will accept cash payments. If you have a service plan, your payment may have already been pre-paid.

As part of our duty of care, particularly as your car may have been standing and largely unused in the last few weeks, we will carry out a full vehicle health check. Where we identify any additional work, immediate or advisory we will send a video to show the work required. No invoiced work will be carried out without your express approval
