Avonmouth gets 24-hour Mercedes-Benz service centre

With many companies now operating a fleet of commercial vehicles that run virtually around the clock, servicing these vehicles during office hours has become an ever-more expensive exercise, resulting in downtime and lost profits. In the south-west of England the situation has until now been particularly dire, with few service centres open after hours.

Fortunately the situation has just changed dramatically with the opening of a 24-hour service centre at Avonmouth by Mercedes-Benz's commercial vehicle partner in the region, City West Commercials.

This means that owners can now drop off their vehicles at the end of the business day for routine services and inspections and have them ready for work again the next morning. The official Mercedes-Benz partner's other outlets in Somerset, Devon and Cornwall operate a similar scheme, with opening hours between 7am and 11.30pm.

City West Commercials was established five years ago and already has dealerships in Bristol, Avonmouth, Roche and Exeter. The firm sells the complete range of Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles, from the latest Citan to the massive Titan heavy haulage truck with its 250-tonne load capacity, and also provides servicing and parts for these vehicles. A wide selection of used Mercedes-Benz vehicles are also available at all times.

The dealer principal of the company, Graeson Clarke, said that his firm prides itself on the quality of its support and service and described its latest initiative as important for businesses of all sizes.
