Dealership now Closed - what about yours?

My 'local' Cornish LR dealership has closed ..... what on earth do Key workers do now when it breaks / service / MOT?... I'm pretty sure (when I last checked) other dealers - Toyota and the like are still open...

Anyone experiencing similar?

United Kingdom 2016 Discovery 4 3.0 SDV6 HSE Lux Auto Corris GreyDiscovery 4

Both our LR and BMW dealers contacted us advising they are closing. Both have made it clear they will do their best to support key workers and responders heres the bit from the LR dealer....

From Monday 30th March, we will provide appropriate support for servicing and repairs as required for key workers (defined by HM Government) and vehicles utilised in the national effort such as utilities, emergency services and distribution vehicles, etc. In addition, vulnerable customers who rely on their vehicle for food collection will also be supported where possible. If you fall into this category and need assistance then please contact us on customerservices@vertumotors.com. A phone number to call will also be available in due course. We are currently assessing which of our dealerships will provide this vital support in our network of 133 dealerships.

United Kingdom 2006 Discovery 3 TDV6 Metropolis LE Auto Bonatti GreyDiscovery 3

From what I have been reading, most car dealers new and used, have had pretty much zero customers for the last 2 to 3 weeks, and many are close to financial collapse
Auction houses (cars) are closed.

Considering the financial commitment that the dealers in Truro and Exeter have made recently, I’m sure they were probably loathed to close but, a combination of nil customers, staff sickness and possibly even concern for the welfare of the workforce may have forced their hands.

At the start of this, County in Exeter wrote to be to say that they planned on continuing, but would offer a free collection and delivery service for those not willing to visit, now they’ve shut the workshop completely, so something must have happened. Perhaps an overwhelming number of service cancellations?

All very concerning for everyone involved.

Think the sudden spate of closures coincided with clarification that .gov would pay the 80%...

My Disco is also now locked in a dealers for the foreseeable Big Cry
