In the wake of the initial lockdown, we have gradually made our departments available in alignment with lockdown restrictions.
As time has gone on, and with lockdown restrictions easing, we have found new ways of working safely to make our products and services available to our customers.
Now, with more people returning to work and with restrictions being further eased, we believe it’s time for us to open fully, in a desire to ensure we offer a more complete range of services, at a time when you need them.
The main Saltire showroom will be fully open to the public again, as will the Alba Customs showroom and service centre on the upper level of our facility.
Pedestrian one-way systems will be in place in both showrooms, and with 44,000 sq ft of space, we are confident that the business can operate safely for all.
With all this in mind, we have also elected to flip our opening hours from a Monday-Friday rhythm to a Tuesday- Saturday, thus allowing more convenience for our customers to visit and make the most of our facility.
This being so, we will close as usual at 17:30 on Friday 17th July and, after a well-deserved three day break for our staff, we will be opening Tuesday to Saturday, from the week commencing Tuesday 21st of July.
Prearranging an appointment will no longer be essential, but given the level of demand we are experiencing, we would highly recommend that you take the time to contact us in advance and lock in an appointment with the department you need.
Whilst the facility is vast, we will still be limiting the number of people in certain areas of the building at any one time, so if you don't have an appointment, you may be asked to wait until a member of staff is free to assist you.
If you do have to wait, please be patient, it's for the safety and benefit of us all.
Demand upon Rider Training is gargantuan at the moment, as the restrictions on who can attend are lifted from the 22nd July, and practical licence tests are due to resume shortly after.
To address the customer demand for CBT’s we are in the process of recommissioning our outside training yard, so all going well, we will shortly be able to double our CBT capacity.
Our deepest apologies if you’re still waiting for a response from rider training department, we are working through the backlog of enquiries and you can be assured that we will get back to you!
Thanks from all the team
