- Another dealer signs up to the leading vehicle and mileage check
HPI announces a major new contract with Arnold Clark, to provide the HPI Check and NMR Checks and Investigations. As the fourth largest dealer group in the AM Top 100, Arnold Clark moves to HPI with a new three year agreement. A focus on service levels and the dedication shown by the HPI team throughout the tender process was a key factor in Arnold Clark's decision. This is yet another key win for HPI, making Arnold Clark the third Top five dealer group to choose HPI in the last 18 months.
Based in Glasgow, Arnold Clark has a network of over 140 franchised dealerships across Scotland and England. Franchises include Fiat, Honda, BMW, Mini and Vauxhall, which will all benefit from HPI's market leading vehicle history check and mileage checks. Beating off strong competition, HPI was chosen on the basis of its focus on customer service, as well as the brand's long-standing reputation.
Daniel Burgess, director of automotive at HPI, comments: "This is a significant win for HPI and we are delighted to be working with Arnold Clark again. This latest contract is yet further illustration that HPI is the first choice for dealers and manufacturers. As well as our core vehicle information service, HPI has developed a range of market leading products such as Dealer Exchange, Driveaway and our CO2 eco-sheets, bringing dealers added benefits, which can be passed onto their customers. The commitment of the HPI team means all our dealers gain a personal service backed by years of experience."
Kenny McLean of Arnold Clark concludes: "The level of service from HPI is second to none, making it the obvious choice for Arnold Clark. Through this agreement we will be able to give our franchise network the confidence to sell, supported by the power of the HPI brand. In addition, the care and attention provided by the HPI team means we will always be aware of the latest products designed to meet our needs."
