AMR are proud to announce that they have moved into a new larger premises in the South Lakes countryside. Based on a rural farm complex surrounded by the Lakeland fells with easy access and parking for visitors. After a long search for suitable premises we found the site at Gatebeck to be excellent. The site is within easy reach of the M6 junction 36. We can now offer bigger and better restoration facilities and engineering at our fully equipped workshop.
AMR have also added to our fleet of vehicles upgrading the service van to a larger vehicle enabling us to carry an even more comprehensive travelling workshop.
