Mantles Closure Brings Us A New Team Member

A local used car showroom has recently shut down, however, this unfortunate event has given us the opportunity to continue to grow our ever-expanding team.

After 95 years, car seller Mantles, situated in Biggleswade, has closed its doors. After a fire that destroyed its showroom in Royston, the company's Biggleswade branch has remained open for the time being but will later shut permanently. Thankfully, no one was hurt in the fire, but once the branch is back up and running, Mantles in Biggleswade will soon be closing their doors for the last time. Following the closure of Mantles used cars, Biggleswade will now be left with a rather large gap in the second-hand car market. However, there's no need to panic - we aren’t going anywhere.

While this is unfortunate for the area and the local customer base, there is a silver lining. Here at Mastercars Bedfordshire, we will be able to supply a larger variety of used cars in Biggleswade, allowing our customers to reap the benefits of the extensive range of used cars that we will have in stock.

However, with the closure of Mantles, not only will we have a larger variety of vehicles for customers to choose from, but we have also gained an extra pair of hands. After working with Mantles for 8 years, we are extremely pleased to be able to announce that Matthew Hawkes has now joined our trusted team. With his expert knowledge and experience, we know that he will fit right in. As a fully approved RAC dealership, we work to provide the best vehicles to each of our customers. With our team expanding, we are sure that our customers agree that our services are only following suit. We are confident that our business will continue to grow and develop with the wonderful addition of Matthew Hawkes as an integral part of the team here at Mastercars Bedfordshire, situated on the A1 near Sandy.

As we have trusted staff and a wide variety of well-kept second-hand vehicles, there is bound to be something to suit everyone. For more information on used cars in Biggleswade, please contact us.
