New Volvo Depot
We are excited to announce the opening of our new depot at Victoria Business Park, Roche, Cornwall. This new facility will supply Volvo commercial vehicles, parts and servicing across the South West.
New Roche Depot
Here at Stuarts we have a long history in transportation. Our relationship with Volvo stretches as far back as 1968 when we operated our first Volvo F88. Then in 1977 we became the official Volvo truck dealer for Devon, and eventually including Cornwall.
As Devon and Cornwall’s only authorised dealer for Volvo trucks and buses, we strive to improve our coverage to ensure we are within easy reach of our customers. We are continuously looking for new ways to strengthen our service.
Although the Redruth depot will be closing, the new facility will enhance our network of depots, which includes facilities in Exeter and Plymouth. Stuarts will continue to serve the whole of the West Country right down to Lands End.
New Depot Interior
The new depot will provide major upgrades to the Stuart’s network.
The Victoria facility will be capable of servicing and repairing all makes of vehicle, plus of course Volvo trucks and buses. Including air conditioning and wheel alignment.
To complete the depot offering there is a useful onsite ATF/MOT centre.
The depot, which is opening very soon will be located at:
New Roche Depot
Victoria Business Park
Although we continue to expand, we are still a family owned and run business. We pride ourselves on our local connections and work to improve the service and facilities we provide to all owners of Volvo commercial vehicles across the south west.
The opening date is still to be confirmed, planned for early to mid-October. If you have any questions or would like some more information about our exciting expansion, please contact us.
Bay Skips provides skips for The Big Plastic Fish Contest!
Bay Skips have provided both Torquay and Brixham Marinas with two lockable skips for their contest to collect plastic to help reduce pollution and protect marine life in the local area.
It is free to get involved, and the marina is encouraging members of the public to come down to either site. To join in the fun, simply bring along your own safety gear, a willing group of friends, and start fishing away for plastic! Once finished, you can deposit plastic in one of our skips provided at each site. You can attend as many times as you like from the 25th of August to the 1st of September, so why not spread a few brief visits out over the entire week?
The value of the work being undertaken at Torquay and Brixham Marinas should not be underestimated. According to a new Ellen MacArthur Foundation report, “at least 8 million tonnes of plastics leak into the ocean every year. Shockingly, this is equivalent to dumping the contents of an entire garbage truck into the ocean every minute. If no action is taken, this is expected to increase to two per minute by 2030 and four per minute by 2050”. This would be devastating for all sea life and would have an enormously detrimental effect on more than just our fishing industries. It would have a knock-on effect on our entire ecosystem, disrupting its fine balance and endangering countless species.
Ultimately, the foundation is now warning that there will be more waste plastic in the sea than fish by 2050 unless the industry cleans up its act. This is where clean-up schemes come in. Having more companies such as Bay Skips getting on board with such schemes as The Big Plastic Fish Contest is important in engendering a more ecologically friendly economy and educating people about their waste disposal habits. So come down and show your support today!
