ATS Euromaster has opened its new flagship fast-fit centre in Huddersfield Street, Galashiels, following investment of more than £800,000. The new centre is located just 200 yards from the previous site, which is being demolished to make way for the A7 trunk road extension.
Situated directly opposite the Gala Water Retail Park, the new facility boasts five vehicle work bays, including one dedicated to commercial vehicles, and is equipped to provide a complete range of fast-fit services for motorists including tyres, brakes, batteries, shock absorbers, exhausts and oil. Open six days a week, it is manned by a team of six highly skilled technicians.
Tony Culbertson, Manager of ATS Euromaster in Galashiels - one of 460 ATS Euromaster centres around the UK - says: “We haven’t moved very far, but in terms of facilities for our technicians and customers, the new centre is a world apart. It’s fully kitted out with the latest garage equipment and makes Galashiels the most modern ATS Euromaster centre in the network.”
ATS Euromaster has been represented in the town since 1970, with the project to develop the new centre beginning in 2007 and being partly funded by Scottish Borders Council. Construction began in October 2008.
ATS Euromaster’s services extend to helping motorists with any fast-fit work they might need assistance with. No job is too small and the team in Galashiels are experts when it comes to getting motorists back on the road with minimum fuss and cost, whether it’s a small hatchback with a puncture, or a five-year-old MPV in need of a new exhaust and shock absorbers.
Motorists visiting the new centre are encouraged to take advantage of a free vehicle health check designed to help guard against unnecessary breakdowns. Available at any ATS Euromaster centre nationwide, these health checks take just fifteen minutes and cover tyre tread depth, tyre condition, tyre pressure and include visual inspections of front brakes, battery, exhaust and shock absorbers, with a written report issued to drivers on completion.
The new centre is located at: ATS Euromaster Ltd, Huddersfield Street, Galashiels, TD1 3AX. Tel: 01896 753271.
