Ford Service and MOT

John Darke Ltd has been a Ford Retail Dealer since 2008.

All staff, whether front facing or technical are fully trained to the highest level  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.

Being a market town dealership we do not have the overheads of a larger centre.  This allows us to charge one of the most competitive labour rates of any dealership in the country.
