"We Have Officially Opened Our Scandinavian Inspired Retail Centre"

Our family run, Galashiels based Volvo Retailer has re-opened its brand new state-of-the-art showroom. The business which has been around for over 100 years and a Volvo Retailer since 1989 was completely knocked down and rebuilt from the ground up. Designed to make customers feel relaxed and at ease in an environment that informs and provides flexible waiting, working and assessment areas, the new layout is inspired for Scandinavian architecture which is apparent both inside and out. Our dealership has had the biggest investment ever made by an automotive brand in the Scottish Borders, we have also been named as one of Volvo's top performers in 2017 as well as recently being announced as Regional Retailer of the Year.

"Brand New Workshop"

The new Volvo design includes a brand new workshop environment, incorporating while you wait servicing and MOTs, all carried out in our state-of-the-art workshop bays by teams of Personal Service Technicians working on cars as pairs rather than individually. An 8-car workshop has been kitted out with the latest in ground vehicle lifts including a fast-fit tyre bay, full four-wheel alignment bay along with a new MOT and brake test bay.  Staff at Cleland’s are welcoming motorists to book in for services, MOTs and all other expert care your Volvo may require.
