New scrappage incentive boosts sales at Jennings Ford

Posted on 07 Sep 2009

The government’s new scrappage incentive scheme has boosted new car sales at Jennings Ford in Sunderland.

The new scheme, which was launched by the government in order to give the motor industry a welcome sales push, contribute towards getting high-polluted cars off Britain’s roads and to promote road safety, is proving extremely successful with customers at the group’s Riverside Road dealership, just off Wessington Way, in Sunderland.

“This is an excellent incentive for customers wanting to trade their old car in for a safer, more fuel efficient model,” said Paul Beadling, sales manager at Jennings Ford in Sunderland.

He added; “Since its launch in May, we have recorded a significant increase in the number of orders for new cars, which is great news.”

A similar report is also being recorded at Jennings Ford’s other branches across the region. The group’s Gateshead, South Shields, Stockton and Middlesbrough dealerships are also reporting an increase in the number of new cars sales following the implementation of the scrappage scheme.

Subject to terms and conditions under the scheme, customers scrapping a car which is ten years old, will qualify for a £2000 allowance towards the cost of a new model at the Jennings Ford dealership.

Before a customer can take advantage of the new scheme, a number of qualifying conditions must be adhered to. The vehicle must be a car or small van weighing up to 3500 kg, the vehicle being first registered in the UK on or before 31st August 1999, the vehicle being registered with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency in the customer’s name, the vehicle having been registered to the customer continuously for 12 calendar months before the order date of the new vehicle, a UK address on the registration certificate (V5C) and a current MOT test certificate at the time of registration of new vehicle.
