New flagship Motus Truck and Van service centre open for business

A FLAGSHIP vehicle aftersales centre has launched in Witham as Christmas came early for a car dealer company. Essex-based operators of Mercedes-Benz and FUSO commercial vehicles opened a Motus Truck and Van service and parts centre. This is the latest addition to the dealer’s branch network is located alongside of a stretch of the A12 running between Chelmsford and Colchester.

The 2500 square metre building includes a reception area, parts department and a fully equipped workshop, which has nine full-length truck and trailer bays, with another eight set aside for van maintenance and repairs. There is also an Authorised Testing Facility in which inspectors from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency will carry out truck MOT tests. Motus Truck & Van Managing Director Lee Seward said: “We began construction work just under a year ago, but this project has been a lot longer in the planning.

“We’re delighted, therefore, to be welcoming our guests today, and to give them this opportunity to see for themselves a flagship development of which we’re all very proud.”

The new centre is open round-the-clock from 6am on Mondays until 10pm on Fridays, as well as on Saturday mornings.
