There are lots of reasons why customers keep coming back to Arnold Clark

2014 marks the 60th Anniversary of Arnold Clark Automobiles – and it's shaping up to be a great year.

The year has started with a record-breaking Real Sale, as total customer savings reached over £10 million.

And now the Real Sale is over, we're keen to let our customers in on our secrets. Why have we been so successful for 60 years? As our new advertising campaign says, ‘We’re 60 for a reason’!

The reasons for our success

A huge choice: Arnold Clark offers customers competitive prices on over 15,000 new and used cars.

Superb value: 72% of Arnold Clark customers save money when changing their car – even when they switch to a newer model. Plus, 76% of customers have improved their MPG.

Fantastic service: A massive 97% of Arnold Clark customers would recommend us to their friends and family.

Customer loyalty: Arnold Clark has built up a loyal customer base of over 2.5 million people.

Long history: 60 years ago, Sir Arnold Clark bought a Morris Ten Four and sold it on for a profit. The rest, as they say, is history.

Wide coverage: Arnold Clark has expanded into England in recent years – and now has 200 dealerships across the UK.

Award-winning website: We now welcome more than 60,000 visitors to every day.

Motoring peace of mind: ACCIST, our free accident management service, comes as standard with every vehicle. Moreover, every car goes through a 120-point inspection, and an HPI check, before hitting the forecourt.

We've got lots of exciting activities planned to celebrate this milestone – and to thank our loyal customers for getting us to this point. Watch this space!
