Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has opened a new purpose-built Van Centre at Dunsbury Park, Portsmouth, offering 10 service ramps, an MOT facility and a 22-strong team.
The site is being run by Breeze Motor Group, which has relocated its former Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Service Centre in Hilsea to the new 1.4-acre dedicated site, providing capacity to sell Volkswagen’s Das WeltAuto approved used van and lifestyle range.
Additionally, Breeze Motor Group is expanding its range of services to offer the approved Volkswagen Financial Services ‘Rent-a-Car’ scheme, which will allow customers to rent commercial vehicles on a short or long-term lease.
Breeze Van Centre Portsmouth will also offer a full range of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles services on site including servicing, MOT, Express Fit and Roadside Assistance. The centre has a dedicated team of experienced service advisors, technicians and parts advisors as well as a head of business and aftersales manager, creating 14 new jobs.
The new workshop brings the number of dedicated Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Authorised Repairers to 26. The brand also operates a further 71 full Van Centres which provide both sales and service facilities.
Trevor Hodgson-Phillips, head of service and parts operations for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said: “We’re pleased that Breeze Motor Group has chosen to continue its investment in the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brand. Breeze Van Centre has proved itself time and again as a trusted partner to customers along the south coast, embodying the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brand promise of Working With You.
“Authorised repairers are a vital part of our network, ensuring genuine UK-wide aftersales services for all customers. Along with extended opening hours at all sites and now 20 Mobile Service Clinics, we’re confident we can be there, whenever our customers need us.”
