How has this affected the Motability Scheme?

Because of the Government guidelines in place, Motability have announced that the scheme is currently closed for applications from both new and existing customers.

If you have any further questions regarding Motability, then we recommend visiting the FAQ section of their website.


What happens if I miss my service?

We cannot extend the date by which you must have the vehicle serviced to stay within the warranty guidelines. The current tolerance of one month of scheduled service due date will be suspended during this time. Distance tolerances remain at 1,000 miles.


What happens if my warranty expires while you are lockdown?

Current time limit to complete a warranty repair within 14 days of warranty expiring is suspended during this time.


My MOT has run out, what do I do?

Cars and vans and motorcycles due their MOT from 30 March 2020 will have their MOT extended by 6 months. This will continue until confirmed otherwise. This will allow vehicle owners to continue to be able to get to work where this absolutely cannot be done from home or do essential shopping. Vehicles must be kept in a roadworthy condition and drivers can be prosecuted if they drive an unsafe vehicle.

Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency have issued 2 guides:

guidance on MOTs due before 30 March

guidance on MOTs due from 30 March


Is my vehicle insured without an MOT?

If your MOT is due after 30th March, you have automatically had 6 months exemption. There is nothing to do.

If your MOT was due before 30th March, you must have it carried out; please contact us to arrange this.

Contact your insurance company either by telephone or email, they will advise you on their policy. Look to their website to see if they have issued a statement.


I have a problem with my vehicle finance and struggling to meet the payments. Who can I talk to?

Contact your finance company either by telephone or email, they will be able to advise you what steps to take.


I have a service plan with you, and my vehicle service is due, can I take my vehicle elsewhere?

The Service Plan agreement is with Bridgend Ford therefore not valid at any other repairer. To pre-book your vehicle in email us at info@bridgendford.co.uk.

Why is the service department closed when the government guidelines state garages/MOT centres can stay open?

Whilst some garage services are deemed essential, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone all service department appointments to protect and minimise risk to our customers and staff.


My new vehicle is due for delivery during the current lockdown, when will I be able to collect my vehicle?

We have made the decision to close our dealership completely, and other businesses down the supply chain have also made this decision, this unfortunately means that no new vehicles will be delivered. A member of our sales team will be in contact as soon as the dealership opens again to discuss the next step. Your vehicle has not been cancelled.
