Good day to you all- We hope you are keeping safe and healthy at home. We have closed our doors from yesterday ( 24.03.2020) for initially the next three weeks and we will re-open when safe to do so.
Things you need to know so not to worry.
Ford - Subaru and MG vehicles that are still within manufacturer warranty and require a service within this time when it is not possible to have that service and maintenance work carried out NOW have some clarity.
MG - We have had direct contact from the manufacturer and all MG owners now have a 60 day and 2000 mile extention applied to their vehicles so if your service is due, then you dont have to worry about it for now. We have over 200 MG's that will be due to have routine servicing required within this period and when we are back up and running, we will continue to offer the FREE pick up and drop off service directly with you until we clear the backlog.
SUBARU - Again , we have direct contact with SUBARU UK and they have also offered a period that takes the worry away for you. No time or mileage restrictions here for now and we will offer the same FREE pick up and delivery until we clear the back log -There are over 100 Subaru cutomers of ours too that will require maintenance in this timeframe but dont worry - as soon as we are are fully open , we can clear the backlog failry quickly as all the technicians will be on overtime working to complete the outstanding works.
FORD - No official contact as yet but this is FORD and they are currently switching their attention to helping the emergency services with the continuous running of emergency service vehicles and many other roles that a company with such longevity and trust of the nation and government that only they can perform. We have confidence that Ford won't let either their valued customers or dealers down in this time of national emergency. The same FREE pick up and Delivery service will operate for ALL OF OUR CUSTOMERS.
MOT DUE ? - Dont worry - We have just had notification this morning that " cars, vans and motorcycles due their MOT from March 30th 2020 will have their MOT extended by 6 months. This will continue until confirmed otherwise. This will allow vehicle owners to continue to be able to get to work where this absolutely cannot be done from home or do essential shopping. Vehicles must be kept in a roadworthy conditioin and drivers can be prosecuted if they drive an unsafe vehicle. "
Hope this helps our valued customers
Keep safe and see you soon
Piers Terry- Andrew Paine
To all our customers
It is with much sadness and regret that we are temporarliy closing our doors. Following government advice , it is our duty to you and our staff by taking this measure.
We look forward to being able to welcome you all once again in the hopefully very near future.
Wishing you and your families good health and safety in these difficult times.
The Perkins Team
It is now Monday 23rd of March 2020, just a few days into the COVID-19 pandemic. At Perkins, from a SERVICE / MOT / RECALL / WARRANTY perspective, business operations are changing - For the last 7-10 days, we have been instructing our loyal customers to stay at home / work and let us pick up and deliver your vehicle. Its free of charge and its working well so far. We need to protect our teams in the various departments and we think we need to keep the contact between us and you to a minimum. If you are one of our customers, we are at work and we are here to look after your vehicles safety to help your keep your family safe.
THE WAY WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING AT THIS SITUATION IS THAT YOUR VEHICLE MUST BE LEGALLY TAXED , INSURED AND MOT'D - If your MOT expires, then your insurance will be invalid and you will not be able to re-tax your car either. If your car is under manufacturer warranty, it MUST be kept within its servcing schedules. Although the car manufacturers we are in partnership with have not made any comments or statements as yet, our opinion currently is that if your vehicle misses its scheduled service whilst within manufactuer warranty because of the owner being in isolation, then that is potenially going to be a problem as time goes on. We have a system that is practised and working so we think its best to be safe than sorry so please take advantage of our FREE PICK UP AND DELIVERY SERVICE.
We have increased sanitisation aids and have been implementing throughout all our sites improved hygiene for all parties. This includes, but is not limited, to drivers wearing the appropriate gloves, clothing and protective equipment (including wipes). We have an enhanced cleaning regime for all workspaces and vehicles - pens or tablets used for signatures are cleaned with sanitising wipes before an employee touches or uses them.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post - If you are looking to buy a vehicle we have in our stock, everything is valeted and cleaned to a very high standard and within a few hours, everything in stock (even NEW MG and SUBARU ) is ready to drive away.
Send us the pictures of your car to part exchange so we can professionaly and accurately give you a guide valuation subject to final inspection when you arrive at the dealership ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) . Ask our Sales Team for finance quotations if required. We can approve your finance before you arrive so your time in the dealership can be as short as possible. You can make final payment electronically to reduce further chance of contact and we have now authorised unaccompanied test drives for our own previous customers. If you have NOT done business with us before then we will sit in the back of the car.
SO - Looking to buy a car ? CALL US ON 01376 550899 and we can help.
