Inchcape is the leading, independent global automotive retail business with a long history. Our roots dating back 170 years, we're renowned for a truly pioneering spirit, high-quality and putting customers first, everyday, everywhere.
At Inchcape we have seven critical core values* which have become the basis of our everyday culture, a living, breathing culture that encompasses all we do. One of our key core values is Caring for our Environment, which means we consider environmental impacts as part of our decision making process.
We've designed our Inchcape FutureAuto, greener motoring site to help you select your next car with the opportunity to review green considerations including, CO2 emissions, MPG and fuel type, although we're certainly mindful that cost and price also matter in decision making, so it's great that greener cars can often be better value for money cars too.
Your next car really needn't cost the Earth!
Our 7 Inchcape Core Values
Passionate about making a difference
We are committed to putting the customer first every time, every day, everywhere. Making our customers feel special energises us, which we do by delivering 'brilliant basics' (the little things, like greeting a customer, that moves them seamlessly through the sales process) and creating 'magic moments' (those special extra steps that delight customers make us memorable).
Caring about society
Each one of us plays our part in addressing global concerns through our local, everyday actions. We integrate an awareness of our environmental impact with responsible business decision-making, and we advance opportunities to reduce our industry's bearing upon our planet.
Respect and camaraderie
People are at the heart of who we are, how we think and how we act; Inchcape is successful because of 'us'. We celebrate diversity, we value and learn from each other and we feel proud to be working with the best. We have faith in each other and show each other real loyalty.
Integrity without compromise
We have no 'hidden agendas'. We have an uncompromising commitment to transparency and ethical principles. We believe in a straight talking, human approach. We take personal responsibility for what we say and do. In an industry not famed for trust, customers choose us for our clarity, honesty and realism.
We are strong as individuals, but we're even stronger as a team. We are part of a rich global network, and together we achieve great things. We enjoy working with each other and we always achieve more when we do.
Treating every £ as our own
This is our company and we feel proud to be part of it. We see cost as a good thing, as long as it creates value. What we hate is waste, so we think before we spend.
Being always ahead
An intrepid spirit is the essence of Inchcape. We lead our industry by example. We liberate talent and prize initiative. We are prepared to take risks, drawing on our powerful global resources of creativity and insight.
