Alternatively, if you have emergency repairs or work that requires immediate attention such as your MOT is about to expire, please contact our Lexus Bristol or Toyota Bristol North centres who will do all they can to support you.
Whilst our Welsh centres may be physically closed, we are still very much open, albeit operating remotely, responding to you calls and emails on any sales or aftersales booking enquiries you may have. Our website and social media activity will still be operating as normal keeping you informed on the COVID-19 situation and allowing you to reserve vehicles only for just £99, but please do not hesitate to get in touch with any questions you may have.
Whilst our priority remains ensuring the well-being of our customers, staff and partners, we do thank you for your patience, understanding and ongoing support during these challenging times.

FACE COVERINGS MUST BE WORN BY ALL CUSTOMERS/VISITORS WHEN ENTERING ANY MOTORLINE GROUP BUSINESS*
Under the guidelines issued by the Government, car dealerships fall within the description of ‘Shops and Branches’ and therefore from Friday 24th July it is mandatory for customers and visitors to wear a face covering in any Motorline business. The wearing of a face covering for Sales, After sales and Parts customers attending the business is mandatory. Please ensure you have this in place prior to arrival as in the interest of our colleagues and customer safety those customers arriving at the site without a face covering may be turned away.
*It is important to note that some of our customers may be exempt from wearing a face covering. The conditions under which this may apply are listed below;
In line with the guidance from the government which states; “Shops and supermarkets will be expected to encourage compliance with the law (as they would do more generally) and can refuse entry. If necessary, the police have the powers to enforce these measures, including through issuing a fine of £100 (halving to £50 if paid within 14 days)”.
