Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Government has announced new, temporary, measures to help keep people on the road for essential travel, whether that be necessary travel to work or to the shop for necessities.
From 30th March, all cars, vans and motorbikes will be granted an exemption from MOT testing for 6-months. This legislation will be effective immediately from 30th March and will be in place for 12 months.
Of course, vehicles must be in a roadworthy condition and garages may still offer essential repair work. Drivers may still be prosecuted if vehicles are unsafe. Please remember, that Vindis Group service departments will be open, but we will be prioritising vehicles of key workers to ensure they are kept mobile during this time.
As always, the government’s rules regarding essential travel remain. Stay safe, stay at home when you can, and please get in contact with your nearest Vindis Group dealership via email or phone if you require help.
All vehicles that are sold by the Vindis Group are subject to an administrative / preparation fee of £90 inc VAT. For new vehicles this charge covers the cost of mechanically preparing the vehicle for delivery, the administration of new ownership documentation and final preparation for customer handover.
For used vehicles, this charge covers a full history and provenance check prior to being advertised for sale ensuring no financial risk or charge has been levied against the vehicle, that the vehicle has never been written off or stolen and final preparation for customer handover.
Vindis Group believe this level of preparation is crucial in ensuring we provide the highest level of customer satisfaction, for which the Vindis Group is renowned for.
We are delighted that in line with Government guidance, that all Vindis Group businesses are open as of June 1st for both sales and service.
Although we are delighted to be able to welcome people to our retailers, we also want to do this responsibly and safely to protect both customers and employees including introducing social distancing and sanitisation measures throughout our showrooms.
