Newton Abbot and Exeter Merging Branches:

After much anticipation, Western Towing is taking a bold step forward by merging our branches into our existing premises on the vibrant Marsh Barton Trading Estate, Exeter. This significant move marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter in our journey, and we can’t wait to bring you along with us.

Passing the Torch:
We will bid a fond farewell to Mark, Richard, and Gary Saxton, who are retiring in early 2024 after an incredible 45 years of dedication to our business, founded by their parents, Brian and Sybil Saxton, in Teignmouth in 1977. Rest assured, the legacy continues in the capable hands of Michael Saxton and Chris Hood with the help of Hayley Saxton and the Team. Mike & Chris are two seasoned veterans with over 40 years of collective experience at Western Towing. Their expertise and passion for our community will guide us into a promising future.

Why the Move?
Deciding to close a branch is never easy, but after careful consideration, we found compelling reasons to consolidate our presence. With advancements in local infrastructure, including the Torbay bypass to the A380 and our robust online platform, we’re now more connected than ever before. Merging our branches, only 20 miles apart, streamlines our operations and allows us to serve you better.

Expanding Horizons:
Our relocation to Exeter is part of a larger expansion plan. By moving all of the business to Marsh Barton, we’re better positioned to reach a wider customer base, including the Commercial Van and Leisure industry sectors, comprising Caravans and Motorhomes. This move opens doors to new possibilities, enabling us to offer you an even more extensive range of products and services.

Enhanced Experience:
At our Marsh Barton location, you’ll find improved facilities, a spacious forecourt designed for easy access, and a team of highly skilled technicians ready to assist you. We’re investing in our staff, ensuring they receive top-notch training, guaranteeing you the expert guidance and support you deserve.

Community Engagement and Sustainability:
We’re not just relocating; we’re becoming an integral part of the vibrant Exeter community. Expect to see us actively participating in local events and initiatives, contributing to the local economy, and promoting environmental sustainability. Our new location will incorporate energy-efficient practices, aligning with our commitment to a greener future.

Your Trusted Partner:
Above all, this move is about enhancing your experience. With a broader product range, improved services, and a dedication to customer satisfaction, Western Towing remains your trusted partner for all your towing and vehicle accessory needs.

We’re incredibly grateful for your ongoing support. As we embark on this exciting journey, we look forward to welcoming you at our Marsh Barton premises. Together, let’s make this transition a success and continue building a stronger, more vibrant Western Towing community.
