Ŝkoda Changes

October 2022

Sadly Underwoods will no longer be the appointed Škoda Main Dealer and Authorised Repairer in Colchester. The Colchester dealership will be officially closed from Monday 31st October 2022.

Please be aware that this was not the decision of Underwoods as we have been successful over our 18 years representing Škoda. This decision is entirely out of our control.

To explain, Škoda are embracing an organisational change called “Market Area”. This is where a single larger dealer group with multiple dealerships, is preferred to cover a wider geographical area for sales and service. Unfortunately as a smaller independent dealer, despite our success, Underwoods does not fit this new criteria.

To provide you with support (including Warranty work) Underwoods will hold Škoda Authorised Repairer status at our Sudbury and Clacton branch. To make a booking please call: Sudbury 01787 880666 or Clacton 01255 222444. We will however make contact with you in due course.

For Colchester residents, you are welcome to use our remaining local Servicing and MOT services at Vauxhall, Kia and Mazda, however we cannot provide authorised Škoda warranty support from Colchester.

If you have any further questions please email: customerhelp@underwoodsmotoring.com.

We apologise if these unfortunate circumstances cause you any inconvenience, but we pledge to support you in any way we can at our remaining branches.

You will be pleased to hear that all of our Škoda staff will have the option of continued employment within Underwoods, as many of you have formed friendships with them over the years.

Finally, we would like to thank all the Underwoods customers who have been so supportive over the years, returning time and time again for their next vehicle and servicing. Your loyalty means a great deal to us and we hope we can continue to support you throughout your driving life.
