Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has increased its dedicated network to 30 authorised repairers and 66 van centres by bringing two new sites on board.
The sites are in Perth and Tewkesbury. Auto Services Perth is a family-run business located on the A9 on the edge of Perth, Central Scotland, with 15 service ramps in total - two of which are dedicated solely to Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
It offers repairs for both petrol and diesel engines, and more recently for electric vehicles (EVs), the company has installed EV chargers on site.
The second new authorised repairer is family-run Arthur Spriggs in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.
Arthur Spriggs Tewkesbury will provide MOT tests and a full range of authorised service and repair work. It has a newly refurbished workshop offering six ramps and Class 7 MOT tests.
Both Authorised Repairers offer extended opening hours, with Tewkesbury open from 7am to 9pm and Perth from 7am until 10pm Monday - Friday. Perth is, however, looking to move to a full 24-hour operation.
Wesley Withey, national network development manager at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said: “With the help of Auto Services and Arthur Spriggs, we’ve been able to expand our representation into two new areas, allowing us to offer dedicated support to even more customers.
“As two long-standing, family-run businesses specialising in repair and service solutions for commercial vehicles, the sites have excellent facilities to help customers with all their needs including repairs and MOT tests. We’re delighted to bring them on board.”
In a move to maximise opportunity on the South Coast, Breeze Motor Group has restructured its Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle sites.
As part of this process, the Southampton van centre is now an authorised repairer with an approved used van offering; Portsmouth authorised repairer has now expanded to a full van eentre and Poole remains a full van centre.
Cordwallis Van Service Eynsham will relocate to a new facility in Bicester. This purpose-built site will represent Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles as an authorised repairer with approved used.
