General information

1) Are your retailers open and what services are currently available?

Our showrooms are fully open for you to visit, for new and used car sales, as well as the full range of servicing functions.

And of course if you prefer, you can still buy from home: your local retailer is digitally open for business and will be pleased to discuss and offer you remote purchase options.

2) Do I need to make an appointment to visit my retailer?

While you are welcome to drop in, to avoid waiting times or disappointment, we'd encourage you to contact your retailer in advance to book a test drive or showroom appointment . Our teams are available via telephone or online, and for service appointments, you can also use our online booking tool.

3) Can I book a test drive?

Yes, test drives are available. Please contact your retailer online or via telephone to arrange an appointment and get behind the wheel of the model you’re interested in.

4) Is COVID-19 going to delay my new vehicle delivery?

Like many other manufacturers and other sectors of industry, we are experiencing some supply chain issues and a few of our components are in short supply, in particular those relating to semi-conductors, which have reduced our production capacity. This means delivery times for some of our model lines are a little longer than we would normally expect. Please be assured we are working hard to deliver your chosen vehicle as quickly as possible and your retailer will keep you up to date with what’s happening. We also have cars readily available now from stock – just give your retailer a call and we can help you identify a perfect match.

5) Are there any delays to parts deliveries?

Parts supply to our retailers is operating as usual. To discuss your requirements or make an appointment please contact your retailer.

6) Are you accepting part exchange vehicles?

Yes, but please speak to your retailer as they’ll need to make sure it’s clean in advance to help protect staff, and they may ask you to confirm you’ve completed a few hygiene checks.

7) Will my car be cleaned before I collect it? 

Yes, in addition to our usual service wash checklist, we’ve introduced a thorough 25 point sanitisation check which we’ll complete before handing over your car. This will ensure all the commonly touched places both inside and outside the vehicle, including the key, are cleaned with appropriate disinfectant solution before handover, and the key sealed in a plastic envelope.

8) Do I have to wear a face covering to visit my local retailer?

Please follow government guidance relating to face coverings and be mindful of other customers and staff.

9) If I or a member of my household are currently self-isolating due to COVID-19 and work is due on my vehicle. What should I do?

Thanks for following the guidance and not visiting our sites if you or members of your household are self-isolating. Please contact your retailer at your earliest convenience to discuss your requirements or any concerns, and our teams will be happy to adjust your appointment to a more suitable time.

10) What precautions do you have in place to protect against the spread of COVID-19?

We’ve made a number of changes to our processes to try to ensure everyone stays as safe as possible.

It's advisable to make an appointment in advance, please be mindful of staff and other customers, follow government guidance on face coverings, and only visit if you and your household are COVID-19 symptom-free.

We’re using photos and videos where possible to share vehicle information, and carrying out rigorous hygiene checks and cleaning of vehicles. All financial transactions are contactless.

If you have any concerns, please contact your retailer, and don’t forget you can browse our entire model range online.
