The customer service which I experienced was incredible. After a mix-up with myself believing the car would be delivered, and the Ashton branch believing I was collecting the car, my salesman Matthew came and picked me up from my own house to get me back to the dealership - Covid friendly of course, masks and distanced. This was exceptional service and I drove away my car about 30 minutes later.
