About the employer

Our many years in business have allowed us to build relationships with other firms in the industry for the benefit of our customers, and this includes the Motability charity. We support the Motability Scheme, which sees us supply cars and aftersales care to eligible members.

With both cars and vans on sale at our dealerships, we have a number of options for drivers of most requirements. Our new and used car selection includes models such as the Fiesta and Focus, as well as the All-New Kuga and Mustang. Meanwhile, tradespeople can access the iconic Transit van and rugged Ranger pickup from our dedicated Ford Transit Centres. We are also one of the country’s largest Privilege dealers, and can, therefore, sell Ford cars at special prices to the manufacturer’s employees and their relatives.

In addition to vehicle supply, we also deliver aftersales care via our service centres and body shop.

The scope of our offering and the width of our dealership network makes us the only location that motorists need to stay on the road. We are proud to represent the respected manufacturer and strive to uphold its reputation through our high standards of customer service and competitive prices.
