New VW authorised repairer is ‘UK’s largest’

Inchcape Volkswagen Commercial has opened a new Manchester-based authorised repairer workshop, said to be the largest in the UK.

Inchcape VW’s new Manchester site is said to be the largest authorised repairer in the UK

The 21,000-square foot purpose-built facility in Trafford Park features 16 service ramps, an MOT facility and a 22-strong team.

The new site will operate alongside Inchcape’s nearby sister site, which has been running for 15 years, and will enable the original location to focus on sales; all engineers have now been deployed at the new workshop.

Facilities include servicing, MOT, express fit and roadside assistance. The centre will have a dedicated team of experienced service advisors, technicians and parts advisors as well as a head of business and aftersales manager.

The new site will also offer extended operational hours until 22:00 three days per week, in line with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles‘ Working With You promise.

Lee Seward, operations director of Inchcape Volkswagen Commercials, commented: “By opening a dedicated Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles authorised repair facility, we can service even more vehicles than ever before – and with extended opening hours, we can keep commercial vehicle owners mobile, saving them time and money.

“Our experienced technicians have moved with us to the new site, so customers can expect the same high-quality service they’ve come to rely upon from Inchcape Volkswagen.”

The new workshop brings the number of dedicated Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle authorised repairers to a total of 27. VW also operates a further 72 full Van Centres which provide both sales and service facilities.
