In line with Government recommendations we will be closed until further notice to help slow the spread of Covid-19.
Whilst keeping within Government restrictions and guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19, Premier Ford are preparing to reopen the dealership. To begin with, a skeleton staff team will be working through the backlog of work and assigned to high-priority jobs for key workers and essential businesses.
A number of our advisors will return to work and will be making contact with customers due for a service and to rearrange previously cancelled appointments. We appreciate that we remain in challenging times and we will do our best to accommodate you over the coming weeks.
Our staff will also be reorganising the showroom and customers areas so that social distancing measures will be in place, this will include information signage, distancing markers and Perspex screens for our customer facing staff. All members of staff will also be briefed to ensure maximum safety and security for staff and customers alike, as well as a detailed hygiene and cleaning policy.
For the time being, we will be assigning customers timed and pre-arranged appointments for our aftersales services only. We kindly ask you to only travel to our dealership if and when you have an appointment with us.
