The Directors of Guthrie Bros would like to make you aware that our Petrol Filling Station and surrounding property on Northesk Road have been sold to EG Group who will retain the Petrol Filling Station and develop the remaining site for modern retail use.
EG Group will take over the site on 1st July 2019 and at the same time, our Ford Dealership will close after a winding down period over the next few months where we may not be able to offer our normal full range of services.
EG Group will make an announcement on their intentions for the site in due course and a separate letter will be issued by Guthrie Bros updating our fuel account customers.
During this period future purchase of vehicles can only be sourced from our own stock of new & used vehicles for delivery in April or early May. We do not anticipate being able to supply new orders for delivery, late May into June.
Cars we have previously supplied, or you still wish us to supply with the following warranties can be taken to any Ford Dealer:
- Ford’s New Car Warranty which runs for 3 years or 60,000 miles (whichever comes first from date of 1st registration)
- Ford Direct Warranty
- Ford Protect Gold Warranty
We expect to be able to service vehicles up to early May but due to longer lead times at present our workshop diary is now full. Ford Dealers neighbouring our customer area who can provide service and warranty facilities as well as the Ford Motorcraft promotions include:
- Glenford, Forfar
- Balmoral Garage, Blairgowrie
- Lamb & Gardiner, Coupar Angus
- Arnold Clark, Dundee
- Cupar Ford Centre, Cupar
- Arnold Clark, Aberdeen
- Aboyne Ford, Aboyne
- Lawrence of Kemnay, Inverurie
- AM Phillip, Muiryfaulds (Commercial only)
Our Ford Accident Repair Centre is also affected and similarly we expect to be able to repair vehicles up to early May. Your insurance company may have a preferred repairer in the area, but other Ford Accident Repair Centres include:
- Lawrence of Kemnay, Inverurie
- Elder & Paton, Perth
