John Darke Ltd has been a Ford Retailer Dealer Since 2008. Being a market town dealership we do not have the overheads of the larger Ford Centres. This allows us to charge one of the most competitive labour rates of any dealership in the country. We also offer a different level of service to that of other centres, making the experience as smooth, relaxed and friendly as possible.
While your vehicle is in our care we can offer the latest complimentary Ford courtesy cars, or, a collection and delivery service, or, if you prefer service while you wait. So keeping your Ford safe and running like a dream doesn’t have to affect your busy day-to-day life.
All our Ford staff, whether front-facing or technical, are fully trained to the highest levels and regularly attend the Ford Training Centre in Daventry to maintain their in-depth product and technical knowledge. We only use genuine Ford parts and OEM tooling and offer every type of service from simple repairs to full servicing.
