Servicing and Aftersales 

All aftersales departments are classified by the Scottish Government as ‘essential' services and remain open to you. It’s vitally important that your vehicle is well maintained and roadworthy, especially if you haven’t driven it as regularly in recent months.   You can book your aftersales appointment on our website by clicking here 

Remember, limited use of your car can affect crucial components such as batteries, tyres and brakes. We can give your car a thorough inspection, either in preparation for lockdown restrictions easing or to put your mind at ease if you still need your car for essential journeys.  For full details about our Spring Health Checks, click here. 

Whether bringing your car into our dealership or using our collection and delivery services, you’ll notice that Covid safe procedures are well and truly established, and the feedback we have received from customers has been very positive – people feel safe in our businesses.
