The safety of our customers, team and communities are our biggest priority. We are monitoring the situation very closely and will re-open when we receive clear guidance from the government on a safe return to business. All updates will be shared on this page, and via our social media channels.


Can I book my vehicle in for a service, MOT or repair?

We have taken the decision to close our vehicle workshops, as our top priority is the safety of our customers and teams. We have some measures in place to support keyworkers as it is essential we keep them mobile in these challenging times. If you want to book your vehicle in for the future, you can visit the service booking section on our website at

We will be in touch in due course to confirm or rearrange your appointment as required.


If you have an order placed with Sherwoods and have not yet taken delivery of your vehicle.

We tried our best to deliver as many vehicles as possible before our temporary closure, but due to manufacturer limitations and delivery interruptions, we appreciate that not all vehicles were able to be handed over to their new owners. If you are one of the small number of customers affected, we are very sorry, and we will be in touch to arrange delivery of your vehicle when we are able to re-open safely. Any customers with a vehicle on order that was scheduled for delivery in March, we will also contact you when we have any further information.


If you have seen a used vehicle on the Sherwood’s website that you may be interested in finding out more about or purchasing when we re-open. 

Please clicking on the “enquire about this vehicle” button on the website. We will log your enquiry and come back to you when we are open to arrange a test drive and viewing of the vehicle.

*If we have more than one enquiry on the same vehicle, we will speak to the customer who enquired first, and by making an enquiry you are not committing to purchase the vehicle.
