H A FOX no more

Post by Domfow » Tue Mar 13, 2018 10:37 am

Those who use the H A FOX Jaguar dealers will note the next time they visit the Inchcape name above the dealers door.
Inchcape have dropped the 'H A FOX' name from their Jaguar portfolio and the 'Hunters' name from their Land Rover portfolio to go with the group name 'Inchcape'.

Well I'll be. Disappointed not to be told of the change as a long term customer. They send me enough other stuff. And I was only talking to them a couple of days ago.

The E mails look exactly the same but say 'Inchcape' instead of 'H A Fox', but they did notify me of the change on the 16th Feb 2018, by E mail. I almost deleted it without even reading it. :oops:

Maybe that's what I did. It wouldn't surprise me.

Was "Minster", then HA Fox, and now Inchcape. I had occasion to ring them last Friday, and the phone was answered as HA Fox, although the premises and the web site are now labelled Inchcape. Incidentally, the Inchape web site is slow and unhelpful compared with the previous HA Fox site.

I'm also told that the Preston HA Fox/Inchcape appears to be moving to a new site near to M6 J31A, and the roadside sign at that location says Jaguar and Land Rover. It will suit me better, so no complaints.

I got an email telling me of the change a couple of weeks ago but today had a text message reminding me my service is tomorrow and this came from HA FOX!

Yes, H A Fox/Inchcape Southampton are moving to the old Ford Factory at Eastleigh as a joint Jaguar/Land Rover site and Harwoods Chichester are also moving to a joint site, I am told.

It's all part of the JLR dealer strategy. Dealer Groups were told by JLR you can have a joint site or 2 sites owned by the same dealer group in a town/city across the UK. This has led to old dealerships closing and some horse trading between the big dealer groups to allow only one of them to be representing a town or city.
