A Rollacoaster Of A Year For Everyone

We all thought the upheaval of Brexit had been a challenge over the past few years but 2020 began on a slightly more rocky road than normal when the economy was hit with COVID19. It’s turned out to be a turbulent year for our country and the rest of the world but with only a few months to go until we can wave 2020 goodbye, let’s hope we can end the year on a positive.

Due to lockdown and the many restrictions set by the UK Government, businesses had to adapt and overcome the challenges and changes required.

We remained open as best we could during lockdown and began hearing from more and more customers as the weeks went on. We saw many keyworkers from mobile carers and NHS staff to farmers and produce delivery drivers. Some in need of a new vehicle as quickly as possible and others for breakdowns and repairs. It was great knowing that we were able to keep our key workers on the road allowing them to safely continue their important jobs during this very difficult time.

Following lockdown, we are very pleased that many of our team members have returned back to work following the furloughing scheme. We are also pleased to see many other businesses in our local area are returning back to business and doing well. As social distancing and wearing masks becomes the ‘new normal’, like many other business, we have changed the way we operate.

Although we are now able to welcome our customers back into our offices, sanitizing stations, screens and PPE is now very much part of our day to day running to keep both our staff and customers safe.

We have our dedicated staff supporting us and we’re seeing new and existing customers walking through the door.

Our new showroom is due for completion in March 2021 and we can now also start looking forward to the launch of the Brand-New Isuzu D-Max for 2021, which we’ve had a sneaky peak at and absolutely love! We have also added to our wonderful team of staff with a new Mechanic, Salesman and Workshop Manager!

As a business, we are so grateful to the people who have supported us through these past few months, and the continued support from our valued customers.



Launch of the Brand New Isuzu D-Max for 2021

Isuzu recently unveiled the all-new and improved D-Max pickup truck available in 2021. With a new, more aggressive look and quality interior the latest truck has a lot to offer, including an upgraded off-road capability.

The current D-Max model which was launched back in 2012 has been a popular choice of pickup for many up and down the UK. The quality of the Isuzu D-Max 1.9 litre engine will remain very similar within new model. But the addition of an AdBlue tank enables the new vehicle to comply with the latest emission regulations. Almost every other element of the truck has been modified to provide the owner an even better all-round experience and drive.

With a focus on offering the driver a more comfortable experience, the new structure has countless improvements to the suspension and is set to offer more on-road stability for towing and general handling. These new improvements will offer an all-round better experience both on and off road.

For the very first time, the D-Max will be available with a locking rear differential. This will be electronically controlled as opposed to mechanical, allowing extra confidence in those off-road conditions.

The interior has been completely revised and now has a fresh new feel with the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. We are expecting the improved interior to offer a feeling of space and comfort, whilst still remaining an everyday, practical and reliable pickup.

Whilst we love the current Isuzu D-Max, we are very excited for the launch of the new model. As our customer base is largely agriculturaland tradesman, we know the current Isuzu D-Max is a real work horse in these industries. Therefore, we are confident that the new model will exceed expectations and really deliver for those who need both a capable and reliable pickup truck.

The new range of models will be available next year in our new showroom!
