Underwoods Motor Group has announced the closure of their West Mersea dealership based at Kingsland Road. After careful consideration Underwoods have decided to incorporate their West Mersea Ford, Used Car and Garage Service dealership with their larger premises on Church Road in Tiptree just 15 minutes away.
Gerry Wiggins, Managing Director of Underwoods Motor Group said: “This has been a difficult but essential decision, having locally served the island for many years. However, we have recognised the need for change and have made every effort to ensure minimal impact to our loyal customers and the Island’s local community.”
Underwoods Motor Group has seen considerable growth and improvement over the past two years, including the recent opening of their brand new Mazda and Kia dealerships on Scott’s Corner in Colchester and the imminent completion of a new Peugeot dealership in Sudbury. This decision has been made as part of a far larger investment for the group, with extensive improvements throughout all sites including a complete refurbishment currently underway of the Colchester Vauxhall and Skoda dealerships.
Gerry Wiggins went on to say: “Both myself and my staff have forged friendships with many of our customers over many years of loyal patronage, so you will be pleased to hear that all Underwoods West Mersea staff members have been offered alternative employment within the group. I would like to personally thank all of our customers for their custom and their appreciation of the personal service we have provided. Please be assured that we will continue to serve you with the same high level of service you presently receive from the West Mersea dealership at our alternate sites in Tiptree and Colchester.”
The Underwoods Tiptree dealership will offer a more comfortable and better equipped environment for customers, as well as the provision of Courtesy Cars and a FREE Collection and Delivery Service from the Island to our Tiptree and Colchester locations, all for your convenience. Ford customers will also receive continued after sales care at Tiptree as a Ford authorised repair centre with fully qualified technicians.
The Mersea site will be officially closed from 1st October 2015.
