Hamilton Motor Dealership Reopens After £1 Million Investment

Macklin Motors Toyota Hamilton has opened following a £1 million investment and the creation of seven additional jobs.

 Previously a Ford retailer, the premises on Whistleberry Road closed in June to enable an extensive upgrade and makeover.


The investment follows Macklin Motors being awarded the Toyota franchise in the West of Scotland from April. The Hamilton dealership is the second of four Toyota locations that the brand will develop. It is the first Macklin Motors Toyota dealership to feature the manufacturer’s new and exciting design model.


It will showcase the full spectrum of new and used Toyota vehicles including the Aygo X, CH-R, the all-new bZ4X electric SUV, the Yaris Cross, in addition to Toyota Relax cover, which provides customers with a warranty of up to ten years.


Macklin Motors Toyota Hamilton also offers servicing, MOT testing and aftersales facilities. An attractive selection of vehicles will be available for Motability customers, whilst models like the Hilux, Corolla Commercial and Proace will be on offer for commercial customers to meet individual’s and businesses’ needs.


Robert Forrester, Chief Executive of Macklin Motors, said: “This is an exciting time for Macklin Motors as our Toyota franchises in West Scotland take shape.


“This significant investment in Hamilton reflects our reputation for ongoing investment, improvement, and growth in our offering.


“Macklin Motors prides itself on being a beacon for first class customer service and this will continue under the redeveloped franchise, which represents Toyota, a highly respected, market leading manufacturer.”


Michael Clarke, General Manager at Macklin Motors Toyota Hamilton, said: “While the dealership now has a different logo, there will be the same great team and the same great customer service.


“We have a fantastic range of new and quality used Toyota cars to suit a wide variety of needs and tastes; we are looking forward to welcoming customers old and new, following the refurbishment and rebranding of the dealership.”


Paul Marshall, General Manager of Network Development for Toyota GB, said: "We are delighted to be expanding our operations with Vertu Motors plc through their Macklin Motors operation in this key geographic region, and are looking forward to developing several new exciting facilities for our customers."


Customers who purchased a new Ford from the previous dealership can receive any aftersales service from Macklin Motors Glasgow Ford, while used car clients will continue to be dealt with by the Hamilton team.


The Macklin Motors Hamilton Mazda sales outlet on the same site continues to operate. The dealership remained open while the new adjacent franchise was created.
