POSTED: 23/03/2020

After monitoring the news and official advice regarding the COVID-19 crisis very carefully in recent days, we feel that the responsible course of action is for us to close both the Bridgwater and Bristol stores to the public from 6pm today (Monday, 23rd March) until further notice. We are still working behind closed doors and taking phone calls and online orders.

Bike deliveries will continue as previously arranged. Customers with workshop bookings this week may still drop off their bikes if they wish to (or we can collect from you) but will not be permitted to enter the buildings. The recommended 2m social distancing advice must be followed at all times.

We will publish further updates as the situation evolves in the coming days.

Thank you once again for your continued understanding during what is a challenging time for the whole nation.

Riders of Bridgwater Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Riders of Bridgwater Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
