Van Handovers

We would like to thank you all for your support, we are delighted to have you as a customer…

Hopefully by now you’ve enjoyed browsing our website and you can see that we have a high degree of pride and passion in the vans that we sell. The pinnacle of any sale is when we hand a vehicle across to its new keeper and bid farewell as it heads off to earn its keep in its new role. Here are some recent images of the handover process.

John L of Kirkmuirhill, Lanarkshire

Good people deal with good people ….John R was taking the big step of going into self employment . Its a huge step for anyone and a move that we hugely respect. All the best for the future John and thanks for a million for the business . You were a pleasure to have as a customer .

Douglas R of Airth, Falkirk

Old school loyalty and reciprocal business goes a long way … Douglas of Rockwood has been our chosen contractor for all our yard monoblock cleaning and washing duties for some years now. In the name of loyalty he reciprocated and chose us to supply his new van . We are huge fans of reciprocal business and its a lovely way to operate in this fast moving business age.

Tony D of Ayrshire

There is always a crazy scramble for our ‘no vat’ vans and invariably there are winner and losers …. Tony D was the lucky man in this instance and managed to secure our latest VW Cady van with NO VAT ! Tony bought his last van from us 5+ years ago and had no hesitation about coming back to us . He saved over £1000 by buying his vat exempt van from us . Lucky boy !

My Boyd from Gairloch, Wester-ross.

Oliver M from Belfast Northern Irelend

Here is yet another demonstration of the huge diversity of our van customers ….Oliver M from Belfast bought his Transit Custom from us over the ‘phone (unseen) based on our glowing online reviews. He is using the van as a mobile soup kitchen for the unfortunates of Belfast . I cant think of a van sale in recent years that has demonstrated such a generous act of human kindness to others. God bless you.

Calum Y of Aberlour, Aberdeenshire

Calum Y of Aberlour, Aberdeenshire bought his van unseen over the phone . Calum had visited our site a number of times and was familiar with the calibre of vans that we sell and after a few phone conversations he was happy to pay a deposit on the van. This is a level of trust that we always fully respect and Calum certainly wasn’t disappointed when he collected the black Transit Jumbo recently. Many thanks Calum – it was a pleasure dealing with you 🙂

Miles M of Fort William

Mountain bike mad Miles decided to upgrade to a larger van as he rises through the ranks of Scottish downhill mountain biking ….. he is delighted he chose Clarksons and so are we ! His current van (VW Caddy) was just too small for the sport he loves so he decided to move to a Transit SWB medium roof which is an all round better fit for his sport. A lovely guy and a pleasure t6o deal with . Best of luck for the coming season !

Every day is a busy handover day at Clarksons

Put simply we love what we do ……. we are ‘van people’ through and through all based around our focussed family business (established by David Clarkson in June 1978) . We also love meeting customers old and new and here is a very brief handover snapshot of a busy day at camp Clarkson.

You cant beat the new van feeling

After years of good service from his trusty 10 year old Transit David decided it was time for a change of workhorse. Moving across to a Peugeot Boxer L3H2 Professional I’m sure he’ll be delighted with what it has to offer. Being a local joiner , people like David are an excellent advertisement for our company as we get a vast amount of business via word of mouth . That’s why we only sell great vans backed up by great service ! Thanks again David your business is hugely appreciated – Barry.
