Mail Order Customers:
  *
Our carrier DHL is operating near normally across the world. Allow an extra day for delivery (2 days for Australia, 6 days for New Zealand), just in case. However, regular international postal services can have additional delays, and are not recommended for anything required within 6 weeks.
  * For the UK only, Royal Mail are delivering the vast majority of orders on time according to our data, but is experiencing higher levels of staff absences, so there may some local delays.
  * We will be working normally and have a large warehouse full of parts that will help keep your car on the road. However, we are beginning to see supply delays from factory lockdowns around the world.
Workshop Customers:
  *
Following government guidance, we are open as usual. Taking your vehicle to a garage for repairs is a permitted activity (safety) as long as you observe the social distancing rules. We have strict social distancing processes internally and disinfect daily (not least because we have staff in vulnerable groups). In the circumstances, we have had to close our waiting room. Our mechanics wear gloves at all times and we will disinfect your vehicle with our Zaflora sprays on handing back to you. We would respectfully ask you to show our staff the same courtesy. We also have full amount contactless payment systems.
  * MOTs due for renewal from 30th March to 31st July will be extended for six months. However, you are still legally obliged to keep your vehicle in a safe and roadworthy condition, so if you need to use your car in this period, it is still strongly recommended to get one done.

Alfa Romeo Services @ The Alfa Workshop

We are an independent specialist garage and we specialise in the servicing, repair, tuning, renovation and supply of parts for all ages of Alfa Romeo cars. We are located in Royston, on the border of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Essex and within easy reach of London.

The Alfa Workshop was set up in 1985 by me, Jamie Porter and as an Alfa Romeo enthusiast and mechanic I was aware of the lack of specialist help then available to the Alfa owner as due to their innovative technology and unconventional design many garages will refuse to work on an Alfa Romeo, or do a substandard job.

The Alfa Workshop was founded to solve these problems, hence the '...run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts...' label. We quickly established ourselves as the South of England's leading independent Alfa Romeo specialist. Catering for all models, old and new. The Alfa Workshop has the equipment and expertise to undertake any job on site, maintaining an unrivalled level of quality. We pride ourselves on having both the correct tools and the necessary understanding to be able to carry out any job on an Alfa Romeo. Wherever possible we like to do all repairs on site in order to maintain the all important quality control. In order to do this we have a machine shop on the premises and we have a comprehensive range of Alfa Romeo specialist tools (see below). In December 2007 we expanded, doubling the size of our workshop and fitted a further three ramps, this has also allowed us to build a dedicated clean room for engine building together with an expanded machine shop. We have also provided an area especially for restoration work so that we can separate that from the day to day servicing work we do. All these new facilities are complimented by our dedicated waiting area with views of the cars being serviced as well as an extensive selection of Alfa Romeo loan cars.

Jamie Porter.
