VW Commercials in Speke | Case Study


The Brief:

Swansway VW Commercial Centre were looking for a garage equipment specialist to design, plan and install additional van servicing capacity on their renowned site at Speke. Following a successful project together at Jaguar Land Rover Crewe, Straightset were appointment to deliver this project.

The Project: 

The valeting unit was to be re-purposed into a 4 bay servicing centre, to provide extra capacity to the busy servicing centre. Our design team were instrumental in the success of this project. With the ability to meet the specific requirements of the client within the space constraints and to adhere to new VAG standards for commercial dealerships.

Taking into consideration the current equipment within the existing service station, Straightset complemented this with Werther / OMA 2 Post lifts incorporating a larger capacity lift to deal with larger VW vans. In addition, Straightset installed Exhaust Extraction systems, Oil Servicers, Air Compressor.

The Outcome:

The client was particularly impressed with the consideration and design of the workshop layout, which maximised the workshop space and met the clients requirements exactly. Working closely with the clients’ architect and on site management teams, Straightset was able to hand over the workshop on 8th September to time and budget.

Our VW Van Centre in Liverpool, has been the number 1 VW Van operation in the UK for the last four years. It’s an extremely busy site and so it was essential that Straightset got this right, first time and in a very timely fashion. They worked in close collaboration with the architects and other contractors and delivered a great result.”
