FORD Approved Service and Used Car Centre in Somerset

Covid19 November Lockdown

Following Boris Johnson’s announcement of the November lockdown, we wanted to update all of our customers about our plans to comply with the government’s rules.

Sales department:
To comply with the government’s instructions the sales department will be closed to physical visits, from Thursday the 5th of November until Wednesday the 2nd of December. However in a change from the Spring lockdown, we are allowed to sell vehicles online, on a “Click and Collect” basis. Our sales staff will be available via email, WhatsApp and phone to speak to if you have any questions about any of our vehicles. Alternatively you can reserve a car, and collect it when the lockdown is lifted, if you prefer.

Service department:
At the time of writing this update, the government has not published the revised list of “essential” businesses, but we are assuming that as vehicle workshops were allowed to remain open last time, they will again this time. After all, the vehicles that had their MOT extended because of the last lockdown, are now due an MOT as the extensions are ending. We will update this message when we receive clarification from the government.
Our premises have been Covid Secure since we
re-opened, but we wanted to remind you of the changes we have put in place to keep our customers and staff safe: Our waiting area and customer facilities remain closed, so please arrange to drop of your car, or utilise our free Collection and Delivery service. We have laid on extra capacity for this service to make life as easy as possible for you. Sadly our courtesy car is currently unavailable, and we are not offering our complimentary Wash and Vac service. Instead our focus is on sanitising the touch points of your car, prior to our staff driving it, and again when we have finished working on it.
If you have a booking, but you no longer feel comfortable having this work completed during this lockdown, please let us know at your earliest convenience, and we will rebook you after the 2
nd of December.

We all hope that you understand these decisions, and agree that this is the best thing for us to do. Please stay safe and look out for further news as and when we get it.

We are a family run business that take a different approach to selling and maintaining cars.

We believe in the traditional values of good customer service, and an honest approach to business. Tarnock Garage is a Ford authorised service centre, offering all the usual dealer backup. We carry a large stock of Used Ford cars and vans, and our large workshop is fully equipped and able to keep vehicles of any make in top condition.

We are passionate Ford fans, and THE place to come to buy, modify or maintain your ST or RS. We are the Mountune PRO dealership for the south west, an accolade we are proud of.

Please take a look around our website, or drop in and see the difference for yourself.



Ford Service

Our fully equipped workshop and Ford trained technicians are ready to maintain or repair your car. From the annual MOT through scheduled services and consumables such as tyres, brakes or cambelts we strive to offer great value for money, and return your car with the least amount of stress and inconvenience. You can now request a booking online to save even more time and make the process even more hassle free!

Vehicle Sales

We have a large selection of nearly new and used Ford cars and vans, many of which are low mileage, low owner, full service history vehicles. Whats more, all of our vehicles include a package of benefits, which includes a Minimum 6 month Ford warranty, 12 months Ford Assistance breakdown cover, a scheduled service and a new MOT, at no extra charge. We also NEVER charge an administration fee on any purchase, so the price you see is the price you pay.

Tarnock Garage is the nominated “Mountune Pro” dealer for the south west although we have customers from all over the country. Mountune are the approved Ford tuning arm, supplying performance enhancements to the Ford range without affecting your manufacturer’s warranty.

For our customer’s convenience we offer a collection and delivery service when your car visit’s our workshop. This is provided free of charge within a 10 mile radius. If you are outside this area, or if you need to keep mobile, we offer a free courtesy loan car as well!
