This December, we’re launching the Real Deal – a fantastic new opportunity for customers to get an extra £750 when they part-exchange their car.

But that’s not all…. we’re also offering a free 2-year service plan to customers when they buy any used car.

So, what is a service plan?

Service plans are designed to help you spread the cost of maintenance on your vehicle over a fixed term.

However, if you purchase any used car during the Real Deal, the cost of your car’s servicing and MOT tests are covered by us for two years!

What service plans are available?

The Real Deal includes two types of service and MOT plan:

Clark Plan – This plan is designed for older vehicles and includes two Arnold Clark standard services and two MOT tests. It can be included in the Real Deal when purchasing an Arnold Clark used or value range vehicle older than 36 months.

Service Plan – This plan can be included when purchasing an Arnold Clark used, pre-registered or value range vehicle up to 42 months old. You’ll receive manufacturer servicing for the duration of the plan.

Notably, you can also opt to extend your service plan to a 3-year or 4-year service plan, where available, for a fee.

What are the benefits?

Service and MOT packages are designed to give you peace of mind. Here are some of the benefits: * By securing a service plan, your future servicing and MOT needs will be taken care of for a fixed period of time; in this case, at least two years.

  • Rather than having to save up to ensure you have cash to pay for your service and MOT upfront, if you buy a used or pre-registration car during the Real Deal event, we will cover the cost of your car’s servicing and MOT tests for two years* – saving you money in the long run.

  • Your car will be in safe hands – all work will be carried out in line with your vehicle's recommended service schedule by our fully qualified technicians, who have access to the latest diagnostic equipment and workshop tools.

  • Making sure your car has a full service history will preserve its value and keep it in optimum condition – which will positively impact its resale value.

  • You’ll also receive a free car care kit or road atlas when you take out a service plan with Arnold Clark.

On top of a free 2-year service plan, with the Real Deal you also get an extra £750 when you part-exchange your car – which you can choose to add to your valuation or take it as cashback!

Find the perfect car for you this winter with the Real Deal. With the biggest stock of used cars in the UK, we’re sure we’ll have the car for you.
