Scrappage incentive generates positive response from JenningsFord’s customers

Posted on 28 Jul 2009

The Government’s new scrappage car initiative has been given a warm welcome from customers at Jennings Ford’s branches across the region.

Customers visiting Cargo Fleet Lane in Middlesbrough, Yarm Road in Stockton, Riverside Road in Sunderland, Eslington Park in Gateshead and the Newcastle Road branch in South Shields, are now taking advantage of the new scrappage scheme which has been launched to give the motor industry a huge sales push, contribute towards getting high-polluted cars off Britain’s roads and to promote road safety.

Subject to terms and conditions under the scheme, any customer scrapping a car which is more than ten years old will qualify for a £2000 allowance towards the cost of a new model at JenningsFord.

Ray Riaz, general manager based at Jennings Ford’s Stockton branch, said;

“The new car scrappage allowance has been hugely welcomed by customers driving older cars who are taking advantage of this fantastic opportunity.”

“Despite the scheme having only just been officially launched, we’re delighted to report both a positive response and great deal of interest from customers, with orders on new models having already been taken.”

“This is an excellent incentive not only for the motor industry, but also for local dealers.”

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 31 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.
