Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has opened a new commerce site in St Albans, Hertfordshire strengthening Citygate’s presence in the region. The new facility boasts seven service ramps, an MOT facility, and a 25-strong team.
The new site offers a range of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles products as well as Approved Used vans, with test drives and physical sales available by appointment.
Boosting the customer offering to provide full servicing options, the new facility features seven service ramps, one MOT bay, and will operate a Mobile Service Clinic.
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ specially converted Mobile Service Clinics are kitted out with an array of on-board tools including compressed air jacks and even a hand wash basin.
Expert technicians are able to carry out service work, inspections, A/C servicing, MOT repairs, minor warranty work, and software updates remotely, saving customers valuable downtime.
Citygate Automotive Ltd, which will operate the new commerce site, is a long-term partner of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles with two other Van Centres in Colindale, North London and Wooburn Green, Buckinghamshire.
