In light of the recent Government announcements we are pleased to announce that all of our dealerships are now open for business.
If you wish to visit us to discuss a new/used vehicle, please call us before visiting so that we can limit the amount of customers in the showroom.

Thank you to all of our customers who have supported us through the months of uncertainty!
IMPORTANT SALES, SERVICE & PARTS NOTICE.
From Friday 24th July 2020 it will be mandatory for customers/visitors to wear a face covering upon entering a Broad Oak Motor Group business.
Under the guidelines issued by the Government, car dealerships fall within the description of 'Shops and Branches' and therefore from Friday 24th July 2020 it is mandatory to wear one when entering one of our businesses.
The ruling applies to customers/visitors only and does not include our colleagues however if you would prefer for a colleague to wear one, please feel free to ask.
The wearing of a face covering for Sales, Aftersales and Parts customers attending the business by appointment is mandatory. Please ensure you have this in place prior to your arrival. Customers arriving at a site without a face covering may be turned away.
It is important to note that some of our customers may be exempt from wearing a face covering. The conditions under which this may apply are listed below;
Young children under the age of 11
Not being able to put on wear or remove a face covering because of a physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability
If putting on, wearing or removing a face covering will cause them severe distress
If they are travelling with or providing assistance to someone who relies on lip reading to communicate
To avoid harm or injury, or the risk of harm or injury, to themselves or others
To avoid injury, or to escape a risk of harm, and they do not have a face covering with them
To eat or drink, but only if they need to
To take medication
If a police officer or other official requests they remove the face covering
In line with the guidance from the government which states; “Shops and supermarkets will be expected to encourage compliance with the law (as they would do more generally) and can refuse entry. If necessary, the police have the powers to enforce these measures, including through issuing a fine of £100 (halving to £50 if paid within 14 days)”.

We are prepared.
Our teams have worked hard to provide showrooms that we can all be safe in by following Government COVID-19 guidelines. Here at Broad Oak Motor Group we have been working to ensure that we offer a safe and clean environment for everyone. We have prepared all areas of our businesses to ensure that we are following the Governments guidelines on social distancing and are taking strict measures to ensure the safety of both our staff and customers.
We have installed new signage, sneeze screens at all desks, hand sanitising stations at entrances and exits and all areas of our businesses have been deep cleaned and sanitised. Service staff will be working under our new procedures to ensure that they can work safely on your car. All these procedures can be discussed with our service teams during the booking process, so please rest assured and feel free to ask any questions so you fully understand what it means in practice.
Virtual Sales Appointments.
We are pleased to be able to offer all customers the option of placing a £99 holding deposit on any vehicle online. Our online ‘virtual showroom’ is open 24/7, along with our enquiry forms and live chat functions. We also offer digital viewing options so you can research your next car in depth before we see you in person. Our sales process has been revised so that we will reduce the time that you spend in our showrooms by using virtual appointments with our sales team via zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp. Whichever method is more preferable to you. As with our service departments our aim to make the process of buying your next car as safe and easy as possible.
