ARKS Global was formed in 2014, rising from the ashes of a local motor factor business that had gone into administration.
We understood the growing market for sales of car parts on platforms such as eBay, and were keen to continue with this, and so a new business was established, one that would solely sell to online customers only.
We also understood that the UK market was becoming very competitive, with sellers caught in a “race to the bottom” when it came to pricing, leaving profit margins very slim. So we decided to expand our reach, and aimed to make our products available to as many customers around the world that we could reach.
From our humble beginnings in 2014 selling a small range of car parts and accessories on eBay, we expanded our reach onto other online marketplaces, including Amazon, Rakuten, Flubit, and most recently OnBuy and ManoMano.
Our experience in online retail has also allowed us over the last few years to expand and diversify our ranges of products offered for sale. We chose not to solely focus on automotive parts and accessories, but are also now successful retailers of other ranges of products, including PPE & workwear, outdoor leisure, catering & hospitality, equestrian & farming, home & garden, tools & DIY and many more.
Many of which you will now find on our own webstore, which we finally launched in 2020, albeit a very low-key ‘soft launch’. This site is fully functional though lacking some features, but is still in active development, and we still don’t have our full range of products available to purchase, however we fully appreciate and greatly value all our customers who have chosen to purchase from there!
We recognise that the nature of online marketplaces is changing, which is why we are turning our attention to having our own online store, our own ‘channel’ where we are fully in control of our own destiny, as well as the products we offer for sale.
We also strive to ensure our customers are happy and always aim to offer excellent customer service. Whether you have a question about an item you are interested in purchasing, or you need help with any issue with an item you have already purchased, please get in touch and we’ll be only too glad to try and assist.
Finally we just wanted to highlight that ARKS Global is still a family-run company with a small team of staff, so we really do appreciate your business and your continued custom and support, and every bit of postive feedback and kind words we receive gives us all a warm fuzzy feeling inside!
