Motor service departments at Macklin Motors across Glasgow, Edinburgh, Paisley and Hamilton are opening to ensure that key workers and vehicles critical to Scotland during the pandemic can continue their vital work.

Anyone classed by the government as a keyworker, or vehicles such as utilities, emergency services and food and necessary goods distributors will be able to access servicing and repairs. Where possible this will be extended to vulnerable people who need to stay mobile.
Robust hygiene and social distancing procedures remain in place to protect customers and colleagues, which include thoroughly cleaning the control surfaces of all vehicles before and after handover.

Robert Forrester, chief executive of Vertu Motors plc, the parent company of Macklin Motors, said: “Although our dealerships are temporarily closed for vehicle sales and routine servicing and repairs, like many businesses we are doing what we can to assist key workers, the most vulnerable and crucial logistics. The dealerships are providing servicing and repairs to keep these essential vehicles and workers on the road.”
