COVID 19 and Motorvation

Along with the rest of the country we at Motorvation have to face the reality of the effects that the Coronovirus is having, and could have on the lives of ourselves and you, our customers.

First and foremost.

We are here. And open !

However in all our interests we ask all of our customers to make sure that they have protected both themselves and us by making sure that they have followed the guidelines as regards their hand washing and other measures to protect themselves goes.

Furthermore we would be grateful, that if possible you ensure your car is as virus free as possible. This can be done by using an anti viral spray such as Dettol surface cleaner. This should be sprayed on the steering wheel, gearshift and centre console area and door handles. If you are taking one of our loan cars these will have been treated before you drive it.

If you are unable to prepare your car this way, please let us know so we can take appropriate measures before we drive your car.

If you are in isolation, or displaying the symptoms of the virus :

Please do not visit us. We will NOT be able to serve you.

Further Covid 19 Precautions.

In a further attempt to reduce the spread of coronavirus and safeguard the ourselves and our customers we have introduced additional measures to enable us to adapt our way of working so as to continue as normally as possible.

Please do NOT enter the office.

We will come to you.

If you are making a payment by card we ask that you remain at the door. We will ask you for the card details etc and process the payment without asking you for your PIN.
We will also disinfect your vehicle before we enter it or carry out any work to it. All our loan cars are disinfected before and after use.
Thanks for your understanding.


The Motorvation team.

After her long absence, it is great to have Jacquie back.

Two days in, and she is trying to beat us back into shape !
At least we can see the office floor again in the spaces between the dogs.

She wants to thank you to all of you who sent her presents and good wishes. So good to have such lovely customers.

Happy Christmas and New Year 2018

Christmas Card 2018 copy2

Please Note : Our Christmas opening times.
We are closed from the evening of Friday 21st until Wednesday 2nd January.

In an Emergency :
Please call us and you will get through to our emergency line, leave a message and we will get back to you quickly.

Well what a year 2018 has been !

We are living in great times of change both socially and politically. The Brexit chaos seems to still linger ! However nothing could diminish the enjoyment of the best summer in years. And what a busy summer we had!

Sadly we saw the closure of Turners Hill Saab this summer. Dick Sedgwick, the owner, was forced to close up after over 40 years due to serious illness. One of the last of the ” Old School” Saab dealers he was one of life’s characters, always having an amusing story to tell. We have been lucky to be able to welcome many of his previous clients. Once again we have said goodbye to a few older clients who had became friends over the years. Also sadly two of our ” Golden Wonder” dogs, Yoda and Custard. Many of you have asked why so much of the office floor is now visible ! Life at Motorvation continues to bring us lots of laughs, new friends, and new opportunities. So we are welcoming 2019 !

Saab Summary.

Genuine Parts supply remains good. Aftermarket parts abound on the internet, often costing more than the genuine item !  We have come across several parts that customers have bought “off the net” that have not fitted, or been of such poor quality that we have refused to fit them. So if you are looking “on the net” always go for a known supplier and chose a known brand name, and price check first !

Indeed many of you are deciding to “refresh” your 9-5 and 9-3’s rather than buy a new but less characterful car, this can be a more cost effective option when compared with the outlay on a new, yet bland “Eurobox”!
With the continuing rise in values for the “Classic Saab cars” we are undertaking more and more restoration and refurbishment work.

Nevs the new owners are now producing all electric cars, based on the Saab platforms these are anticipated to be available to our market in 2020. As always  we  remain Saab brand loyal.  As an existing friend of Motorvation we are always happy to service and maintain your other vehicles and don’t forget we also service Minis.

Once again Chris, Jacquie, and Mike would like to say thank you for your support and loyalty in 2018. We truly appreciate it, and we looking forward to seeing you in 2019.

Again wishing you all the best for you and yours Christmas and New Year.

Best wishes.

Chris, Mike, and Jacquie
