Grays Truck & Van in Croydon has relocated to a brand-new commercial vehicle sales, service and parts dealership, situated on the former site of Croydon Airport just a stone’s throw from the company’s previous premises. The new site provides improved facilities; playing host to what Iveco believe is one of the largest franchised commercial vehicle workshops inside the M25.
Following an investment of close to £1 million, the Iveco-owned dealership has been fully equipped and fitted out with the latest in vehicle maintenance and diagnostic equipment – including a brand new tachograph bay and brake roller tester.
Nigel Emms, Director Brand & Communications at Iveco, says: “Croydon is a strategically key location in our network, not only for its close proximity to central London, but for the fact it is situated in an area with such a high concentration of commercial vehicles.
“We need a 12-bay workshop to meet the servicing demand Grays Truck & Van is seeing from customers. Plus we’ve used the relocation as a fantastic opportunity to kit out the dealership from scratch, exactly the way we want it. As well as the extensive parts and servicing facilities, we’ve also included valuable space for the new and used vehicle sales operation.
“It’s been many months in the planning, but my colleagues at Grays are now very excited to be welcoming customers to their new home.”
The new Croydon dealership features vehicle ramps in nine of the 12 work bays, manned by a team of skilled technicians who provide repair and maintenance across all commercial vehicle types from small vans to heavy trucks. The dealership carries out MOT preparation, brake testing, tachograph and speed limiter calibration and fitting.
The new site is also home to two Iveco Assistance Non-Stop vehicles, on standby to provide 24/7 roadside assistance. Customers can be guaranteed excellent access to spare parts thanks to a typical stockholding of more than £270,000 of original Iveco spare parts, as well as Iveco’s Value Line and All Makes ranges offered jointly by Iveco and Magneti Marelli.
Grays Truck & Van has been supporting customers in the South East since 1979 and currently operates dealerships in key locations along major routes including the M25, M40, M4 and A3. In addition to the Croydon dealership, it has sites in Guildford, Reading and Hayes.
