SWAP TO STYLE AND SAFETY THIS SEPTEMBER AT EVANS HALSHAW
By Sophie21 | Friday, September 06, 2013, 14:21
With thousands of students graduating from university this month, and countless parents returning to work after the summer holidays, it comes as no surprise that competition to strive for the best jobs is at an all-year high.
And with a survey reporting that people are judged most by the car they drive*, local Ford dealer Evans Halshaw is ensuring that motorists in Chorley are set to make a lasting first impression, thanks to their new 'Swappage Scheme'.
The limited time offer will see Evans Halshaw Chorley give motorists a minimum £2000 discount off the most popular additions to the Ford fleet, including the KA, Fiesta or Focus, by trading in any old vehicle – regardless of the age, model or manufacturer.
The dealership is encouraging graduates to ditch their old bangers with their student lifestyle, and accelerate on the road to the 'real world' in a stylish and reliable new Ford vehicle. And for parents whose vehicles have been pushed to the limits over the summer holidays, now is the time to consider upgrading ahead of the return to work.
Plus, with up to £5,000 for an old vehicle, you might find your old wheels cluttered with bumps, scrapes and fast-food wrappers may be worth more than you think at your local dealership, on Bolton Street.
Taking advantage of this offer has never been simpler, as providing you own a vehicle with an MOT**, Evans Halshaw will take any vehicle off your hands and give you at least £2000 to splash out on a brand new Ford - making it ideal for graduates looking to take the pain out of privately selling a car, or parents struggling to find the time between juggling the school-run and full-time work.
The scheme, which is perfect for motorists who are finding it difficult to scrape together a deposit, gives anybody the opportunity to instantly drive away in a new Ford that combines contemporary style and state-of-the-art technology, all while maintaining affordable starting and running costs.
What's more, with the race for the top jobs hotting up and many candidates having to travel or relocate to work, assessing the condition of your existing vehicle before long journeys is vital for safety and comfort.
With the natural degeneration of older cars, reliability comes into question, and long journeys can really take their toll on older engines. Therefore, with arriving safely and on-time paramount when travelling to interviews, training days, or even your first day of work, it's essential drivers are getting behind the wheel of a vehicle that can be trusted.
Motorists are therefore encouraged to consider swapping their old car for a new model with the latest safety technology, Ford Assistance***, and most-up-to-date safety check. And with additional luxuries like air-conditioning, USB connection and stop/start technology standard on many models, now is the perfect time to enquire about swapping to a brand new Ford.
Martin Marsh, Dealer Principal at Evans Halshaw Chorley, comments: "With the cost of motoring on the rise, we're delighted to be able to offer the Swappage scheme, which gives drivers in the area the chance to get money for their old vehicles, regardless of age or condition."
Not only does the scheme mean virtually anyone can take advantage of no deposit on the dynamic 1.2 KA Edge, 1.25 Fiesta Style or 1.6 Focus Edge, it also eliminates the expense and hassle of selling an old car.
Martin Marsh concludes: "Swappage is just one of the ways we're lending a helping hand to motorists who are looking to make that all-important first impression. I'd like to encourage anyone who's interested in swapping their old car to visit the dealership, where our expert team will be happy to help get you on the road in a safe yet sophisticated new car that's more affordable than ever.
