Arnold Clark hopes to boost parts sales to independent garages after teaming up with Vauxhall Trade Club to offer a regular delivery service across western Scotland.
A Movano van equipped with special parts binning and racking runs twice a week from Arnold Clark's Vauxhall dealership in Greenock. It supplies a comprehensive stock of fast-moving car and van parts for services and MoTs.
Donald Walker, parts manager at Arnold Clark in Greenock, said: “It's a great way for me to get out and meet existing and new Trade Club customers and really understand their needs.”
Arnold Clark has also launched a motorcycle service from its new dealership in Glasgow to deliver smaller vehicle parts throughout the area.
Parts manager John McCrae said: “Even with the sort of inner city congestion we are now experiencing, we can get these parts to our customers quickly using our bike service, with a one-hour delivery guaranteed for local customers.”
