One year after opening its doors as a ŠKODA authorised repairler and used car retailer, business is booming at Lawrie’s Garage.

The St Boswells-based Volkswagen and ŠKODA retailer recorded an impressive 47 per cent increase in sales in the last 12 months, compared with the same period last year.

General manager, Craig Anderson, who heads up operations at Lawrie’s Garage said: “It’s been an incredible year for us with significant growth to our Volkswagen business as well as the introduction of the ŠKODA brand.

“What is encouraging, not only have we grown and developed the business, we have improved our customer satisfaction and are now in the top 20 per cent in the UK for Volkswagen customer satisfaction.

“Motorists in the area have really taken to the fantastic ŠKODA range, and our customer base has grown significantly over the past year as a result.”

It is a busy time to join ŠKODA, with the launch of the addition of the ŠKODA Rapid and Citigo to the range. Lawrie’s Garage employs specialist technicians and customer service staff from the local area. With more than 100 years of combined Volkswagen group expertise in house, the team is specially trained to deliver expert service to ŠKODA customers.

Craig continued: “As an authorised repairer we are dedicated to delivering ŠKODA’s Customer Promise – so our customers can rely on professional expertise and attention to detail in our work, and a flexible and convenient service.”

ŠKODA UK has had an outstanding start to the year: registrations for the key sales month of March were up 14.2 per cent on 2012. With demand for the brand’s all-new Octavia playing an important role, UK new car registrations for the manufacturer broke the 9,000 barrier for the first time.

Offering more space, technology and greater value for money than its predecessor, the third generation Octavia has alreadybeen lauded by customers and experts alike, receiving five stars from both What Car? and Auto Express magazines.

Lawrie’s Garage is located on the A68, in St Boswells, TD6 0EW.
