Our response to the COVID-19 virus situation

Further Update 30th March 2020

We have now closed our Southport Peugeot & Mazda, Lancaster Peugeot & Autostore, Kendal Peugeot and Carlisle Peugeot, Mazda & Lotus Service Departments until further notice. Emails & Phones are being monitored remotely and we will respond in due course.

Our Penrith Service Department remains open to offer continued support for Key Workers, NHS Staff and Community Health Workers during this difficult time.

Update 24th March 2020

Our Service Departments throughout the Group are still open.  We wanted to make sure we can provide support to any emergency services or community health workers who might need it during this difficult time – our doors are open. 

However, our Sales Departments & Car Showrooms must now close in line with the UK Government instruction.


With the COVID-19 situation changing day by day, we’d like to reassure you that The Trade Centre is doing all we can to ensure the health and safety of our hardworking employees, valuable customers and the wider community.

While it’s business as usual at The Trade Centre we will continue to follow government advice on preventative measures, such as:

  • Increasing the frequency of cleaning throughout our premises

  • Encouraging regular hand washing by staff

  • Providing handwashing facilities and sanitiser for all visitors and customers

  • Maintaining social distancing

  • Ensuring that any of our team that display COVID-19 symptoms, or have been in contact with those who do, are self-isolating.


We will closely monitor the situation and amend our activities, whenever necessary, as recommended by the relevant authorities.


The Trade Centre would love to see you at our showroom(s) but we understand that this will be difficult for many at this time. We would like to remind those who are self-isolating that our website provides all of the information you need to make an informed decision to start the buying process online. We can also offer a quote for part exchange, along with a range of competitive payment options, all without having to leave your home.


Our experienced sales advisors are here to help with any query, in person, via email or phone and once your purchase is complete, if you can’t collect, we’ll deliver the car to you.

All the team at The Trade Centre wish you well and we look forward to welcoming you back to our showroom in the near future.
