    MG Motor UK Dealer List

    Post by patpending on Wed Feb 26, 2014 2:13 am

    Yesterday we missed that Carrus of Guernsey and Mylchreests of IoM are actually current dealers, partly because MG's own dealer search doesn't always seem to work.

    These dealers (full new car sales dealers only) were on MG's website on 26/02/2014. http://mg.co.uk/dealers/?view_all=1#top

    I note that SMC Sittingbourne is not even in the list of "aftersales only" dealers!

    I'll update the list when the formal announcement is made, but I see new dealers on the website inclluding Bridport:

    1) Bridport  DT6 3PR (Folly Mill Lane - directories give mechanic Dave Malpas, and Bridport Coachworks, so there are similar businesses there) EDIT it appears this new dealer may be aftersales only (how will that work? Shocked ) so will not appear in the revised list.

    2) Penryn (between Truro and Falmouth) TR10 8DA (Church Road)

    Falmouth Garages (Chevrolet dealer) http://www.falmouthgarages.co.uk/

    3) Purbeck MG Wareham  BH20 4AE (Wool and Bovington Motors) http://www.wbmcars.co.uk/

    I guess the old MG-Rover dealer. Postcode is very close.

    Will probably be my local, although a long way away!

    Unfortunately Windy, the new dealer in Bridport is going to be aftersales only (although am I right that aftersales dealers can supply cars ordered direct from the Longbridge sales centre?)
    Anyway, they will be my local dealer as well so I did a bit more research and it's a small garage called 'CAR's' in Folloy Mill Lane about 200 metres up from where Google takes you. They have old MG and Rover signs outside but are very much a service place only.
    Motorwell in Bridport used be be the MG Rover outlet for a few years under the name Southgate but they have recently converted their old MGR showroom to sell Fiat's.
    Still exciting for us Dorset folk though that we do seem to be getting a 'proper' dealer in Wareham and interesting that on the MG site they are asking for us to register interest so they have a list of contacts before they open - not seen that before..

    I can't see them getting much business then since there are not many people in Bridport that own an MG3 or MG6!  

    Not many people in Bridport are going to travel to Wareham to buy their car, might as well travel up to Longbridge to collect it and have a factory tour at the same time.

    Yes, I guess it is going to be quite difficult for new entries the 'aftersales' network to get much business unless they do some used MG sales as well and use these to build a customer base. Perhaps they will have access to ex business/rental or management cars from Longbridge and help MG in the effort to protect residuals..

    Good point, although I doubt there is much supply of used MG Motor MGs at the moment other than some private sales/trade in of MG6?

    Yes, I imagine the ex Avis cars have all finally found new homes and Carshop do seem to handle any surplus used MG's with even the established main dealers only ever appearing to have one or two. I will be in Bridport tomorrow so may see what our new 'dealer' is planning, or what he feels MG are offering him..

    Again, until either there is a press release or they are clearly operational, I'll not add them to the list...

    Great to see some real expansion in the network at last but one to take off as well unfortunately - Peter Stockhill of Hull no longer appear on MG's list and perhaps never really got going.

    I am also looking out for Beech Hill Garage in Reading as a newcomer to the list as they have a new MG3 'for test drives' advertised in the MGE this month..or perhaps they are supporting the nearby dealer, Bulldog in Twyford ?

    I wonder why the longish time before they open, I would have expected that once the decision was made most of them would open ASAP but the last ones where months ahead too...

    Beech Hill have a long history with MG but haven't ever been a main dealer as far as I know. They've been BMIHT approved repairers and the guy that owned it used to work for Janspeed or Downton I think. His son runs it now - they sold an MGB of mine for me once. Usually got tons of MGBs in stock but that last time I went there they didn't have an indoor showroom.

    I have checked Beech Hill Garage website now and it looks like the MG3 they have is was bought already registered. They say they will introduce potential customers to a dealer, so maybe have some commission arrangement with Bulldog MG. Good to see them getting behind the new models and still surprised that they have not (yet) been appointed as an aftersales dealer given their extensive experience.

    I think it is actually Hendy MG in Exeter. They had their 'launch' at the Royal Devon and Exeter Show last weekend which was unfortunately rained off on the final day of the show. Purbeck MG also did a launch event at the Bournemouth Car Show recently.

    Two more dealers on their way for the south and west now, in Torquay and Havant according to MG.

    Looks like the Torquay one will be Central Garages who used to be a big MGR dealer for the area but currently do Mazda.

    I was just updating the full list from http://mg.co.uk/dealers/?view_all=1#top but noticed that, as well as Peter Stockill, the list no longer includes Bishop & Bishop (Wigston) or Brookroyd (Harrogate).

    West London MG are not on the list either and I was actually there a week ago (they had at least five MGs), so the official list is not a reliable guide - and it misses out Hendy and Purbeck who have definitely launched.

    Found them - they are in "Aftersales". Wrong! MG notified.

    Ahh, silly me, I was looking for a main MG dealer with an MG sign on the front of the building, not a run down used car supermarket!




    I should have been looking for the initials MG on the sign at the front of the car park,  although if I didn't know they were an MG dealer then I think I might assume that MG where Mr Hendy's initials:





    After a bit more looking, I found their MG display:




    I think that is it, except for what I assume is their demo car:

    Fair points Windy! I guess the MG signs man is pretty busy at the moment with all the new dealers around the country. Also, with the Car Supermarket group signed up as dealers and now this place in Exeter I hope we are not going to see a rush of other supermarkets signing up to boost the dealer lists!
    Tesco MG anyone!? Actually just realised the irony of this given the MG6 BTCC sponsorship..

    I think part of the problem may be the fire that someone mentioned a little while ago. I think the plywood over the windows is a result of the fire and that is the building which should have the logos on. But I don't really see how the place can be both a used car supermarket and a main dealer and give the correct impression for both, they need to separate the site into two parts but it's not really feasible on that site. Not sure if they are going to have a showroom, there is not much space in the buildings and they need the space outside for the used cars. Bristol Street motors next door manages to make it work with used cars and several brands but they have more space and more than one entrance

    I dont imagine Hendy have much of a servicing capability either so presume if you buy from them it is then off to Staddons in Budleigh to get the car serviced? I must say the new crop of dealers is great news but they are a bit of a mixed bag. Drove past the site in Wareham last week that is to be Purbeck MG and the showroom seemed barely big enough for one car. Central Garages in Torbay (who appear to be the new dealers 'coming soon' based on the postcode from MG's dealer pages) look like a better bet though..

    For servicing, maybe they take it along the road to their Honda dealership which I'm sure could do a reasonable job: http://www.hendy-honda.co.uk/showroom/cars/

    Their Exeter website is a bit lacking in MG, as if they have never heard of the brand! : http://www.hendycarsupermarket.co.uk/

    I imagine Central Garages will be a decent dealer, it is quite a big place as far as I remember, wonder if they will split the site or share one showroom with Mazda? Or put the MG showroom in their Brixham garage which used to be MGR.

    Yes, Central Garages showroom in Newton Road, Torbay is pretty big and could easily accommodate a 3 car MG display while still leaving room for 4 or 5 Mazda's. Strategically it is also the best site for MG as well with lots of other showrooms on that road. Their garage in Brixham is out of the way, and I don't think they have done new car sales from there since the Rover days, in fact they may still have the old maroon Rover sign on the forecourt.

    Mind you, I imagine it will be interesting selling MG's and Mazda's in the same showroom. They already share two model names with the 3 and 6 and as the MG range grows Mazda is likely to become a key competitor.

    New MG webmaster Aldo Turner has cleaned the dealer list up now. http://mg.co.uk/dealers/?view_all=1

    Greenhous of Shrewsbury have now left MG's network within the last three days. Sad

    Surprised about Greenhous - my local dealer. It was quite busy and there are quite a few MG6s and MG3s buzzing about the area. My nearest dealer is Stoke now - disappointing that they are still dropping dealers (even though they are adding others).

    Greenhous do a roaring trade in Dacias so maybe that was the reason? It used to be William Lewis and Greenhous maybe only picked up MG whilst the existing contract was still open. I know the sales calls and customer queries for MG get diverted straight to the Renault showroom; there's even a sign on the MG showroom door telling you to go to Renault if it's locked.

    We're expecting another 30ish dealers over these six months to next year. I think that may be the biggest rate ever. It would be impossible for at least one of the 30 not to be reasonably close to Shrewsbury.

    Dealers are not necessarily being pushed even so. A leaver may have been jumping (though IIRC the last leaver since MG3 came on board was the one in Hessle which never really got motoring).

    Passed Greenhous today - the totem is gone (leaving a hole in the ground), all signage gone except a paper one on the door, 2 x MG3 in the showroom and about 6 outside with a Magnette, all unregistered. No second hand stock. The showroom was stripped of MG paraphernalia. They moved fast! What happens to the stock? I suspect second hand cars were easier to dispose of quickly than the new cars.
