A guide to Ford dealerships in the UK

The Ford Motor Company has had a presence in the UK since it opened its first office on Shafesbury Avenue in London on 8th March 1911. At that time, the company was producing the Model T which pioneered mass manufacturing through assembly line production.

The most popular car manufacturer

Ford and its programs Ford is the most popular car manufacturer in the UK. For the past three decades,they have had higher annual sales than any of their rivals. To cater for this demand, there are hundreds of Ford dealerships across the country. This is facilitated by a program that offers six different franchise types including authorised repairers, new car sales, parts suppliers, transit repairers, accident repair centres and transit authorised repairers.

Car sales

Sales of Fords
Nearly, new Fords are sold through Ford Direct. Before they are put on sale, all pre-owned cars are approved by RAC and once sold, they are covered by a two year unlimited mileage warranty and two years’ roadside recovery from Ford Assistance.
Purchasing options For new car sales, Ford provides several different purchasing options. Ford Credit offers buyers the chance to finance the purchase of a new vehicle through hire purchase plans. Ford Mobility helps disabled people to become more mobile by working with the charity Motability to cater for the needs of disabled drivers across the country. And, service men and woman can buy Ford Tax free through one of the network’s Tax Free Sales specialists.

Service and maintenance plans

Sale of service and maintenance plans To make the cost of owning a Ford more manageable, service and maintenance plans are sold. Owners pay a set amount per month which is calculated using the expected mileage as a guide to which scheduled services the car will need during the initial period of ownership. This sort of plan is ideal for new car owners taking out a hire purchase agreement over a set number of years. Extended warranties and additional years of roadside assistance can also be bought from dealers in the network to protect the car from the unexpected. No matter where you live in the UK, a Ford dealer is within easy reach. Each one is part of an extensive network which prides itself on a reputation for quality which began all those years ago when Henry Ford’s company rolled the first Model T off the production line.
