Glasgow collection


Aug 27, 2018
Cumbria, UK
I've got a collection from Glasgow later this month (was originally booked at Edinburgh, but changed randomly when I got my collection appointment 🤷‍♂️).

Has anyone got any recent experience there? Is it a proper service centre setup yet? or is it still essentially a couple of portacabins & a bunch of cars?

Got a 1.5hr drive to get there , so knowing what facilities are available will be helpful :)

They were still working on the Site 2 weeks ago and told me June opening so maybe that's correct. The Plans did include 8 Superchargers but in a Phase 2 so I would manage your expectations re Supercharger availability. If you have a longish drive after collection then maybe ask them to ensure a good level of Charge on collection. The nearest Superchargers are at the Dakota Hotel on the M8 out past the Showcase Cinema, I've never seen them busy so they are a good Plan B and Supercharging on delivery day is also normally free so fill your boots.

I collected from there in March. I had about 50 miles charge as they were using the the 13amp plug charging method. Not great, so had to use the Supercharger at the Dakota hotel or would not have got back to Midlothian.

My collection experience from Saturday - car has no issues so far and looks great! It was charged to 69% but I'm not sure if that's standard.

5 people collecting at the same time as me.

The site is still a portakabin in an overflow car park. The advisor wasn't sure when the service centre would open - they'd been told the 21st June but he wasn't putting much stock in that due to incomplete work on things like the toilets. Sounds like it could be a few more weeks.

A few photos below.
