West Yorkshire Van Centre has officially opened the doors at a new Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Used Van Centre in Leeds.
The new authorised site, located near to the M621, sells Das Welt Auto approved vehicles and is also a new addition to the German brand’s Authorised Repairer network, increasing the number in the UK to 27 operating alongside a further 71 full Van Centres which provide both sales and service facilities.
Seventeen staff have been recruited by the West Yorkshire Van Centre to help customers with existing repairs, MOTs and used van purchases.
The Van Centre features two used vehicle showrooms alongside an external display and a workshop featuring eight work bays as well as Class 7 MOT and four wheel alignment facility.
The new site will also serve as a delivery point for new vehicles purchased via West Yorkshire Van Centre in Cleckheaton.
