A new Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Van Centre has opened in Lincoln, complete with a full showroom for new and used vehicles and 25 servicing bays.
The new Lincoln site, on Sadler Road, will create 11 new jobs and completes a trio of Van Centres in the area run by Marshalls Motor Group, alongside Grimsby and Scunthorpe.
In addition to vehicle sales, the new Lincoln Van Centre will have a service centre attached with 25 servicing bays and four workshop ramps. It will offer full MOT, servicing and valeting to owners in the area.
Marshalls Motor Group, which will operate the new site, is a long-term partner of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles with six other Van Centres across the UK.
James Douglas, Marshalls Motor Group head of sales operations, said: “We’re delighted to continue our partnership with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles with the opening of our Lincoln Van Centre.
“It allows us to meet customer needs in the area with a new and used showroom alongside a fully-equipped servicing facility.”
Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Carl zu Dohna, said: “The opening of a new, bespoke Van Centre in Lincoln is great news for our customers, expanding our network and ensuring we provide an outlet for sales and service in this important area of the UK.
“Marshalls have long been a partner to our brand and currently have five Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles sites; I’m confident they will make a great success of this new Van Centre with the backing of an experienced and professional team.”
As part of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ Working With You brand promise, Van Centres now offer extended opening hours to minimise customer’s downtime and ensure their vans can be serviced while they’re not working.
The Lincoln Van Centre now brings the number of Van Centres providing both sales and service facilities to 72, with a further 27 authorised repairers across the country.
