    Heritage Van centre Bristol

    Bristol van centre opened sales again after lock down with a New head of business and new sales manager. The old sales manager was a total nightmare to deal with. New guy is a complete contrast. Very willing to get unresolved stuff sorted. Returns calls and doesn’t hide behind fake formalities.
