We’ve also adapted our branches to give our customers a safer car-buying experience.

Are your workspaces safe?

We’ve put the safety of our employees and customers at the heart of Arnold Clark life with sanitiser stations throughout our sites; one-way systems in our offices, showrooms and workshops; and having the appropriate PPE available to any member of staff who needs it.
