ACF Car Finance, UK car and bike finance provider, have announced the opening of their new Livingston branch.

ACF Car Finance already have branches in Isleworth, Dunstable, Maidstone, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and the East Midlands, but the new Livingston opening marks their expansion north of the border, into Scotland. Livingston is situated outside of Edinburgh, and is just a twenty minute drive from the Scottish capital.

ACF Car Finance has reported that sales in Scotland got off to an excellent start:

"We exchanged contracts at the start of October, the lease on the premises was signed at 3:30 pm and we sold our first car at 3:40 pm. The first customer part exchanged an S plate Mondeo for a blue ‘04 plate Fiesta".

Sales person Michael Nicholson commented that all staff in the new Livingston branch have undergone intensive training in car and bike finance, which will enable them to assist customers in Scotland who are looking to buy a car or other suitable vehicle.

Michael said, "All of the sales people went through a lengthy sales training programme before the new Livingston branch opened, so to make the first sale and so quickly was fantastic. It’s great to know that we can help customers find the car and finance to suit them."

Branch manager, Ben Bennetton, also reflected on the successful opening of the new Livingston office:

"We’re all so pleased that the branch is now open for business. It’s taken a lot of time to get the refurbishment done, stock the show room with quality cars and recruit the sales people. We couldn’t have wished for a better start to trading."

Managing Director Gary Hawkins believes that a new ACF Car Finance record may have been broken:

"I was thrilled when Ben told me that we’d made the first sale. And in just 10 minutes. That’s got to be a record. Livingston looks set to give the other branches a run for their money."
