The range of services offered at these workshops includes the traditional Bosch fields of automotive electrics, electronics and diesel servicing, as well as general mechanical repairs, inspections, air-conditioning service, oil servicing, tires and autoglass service and in-car multimedia.

Fleet customers can now take advantage of the new body and paint work services, carried out to certified quality.
