Expertise Helps Ease Military Sales

Sales staff at Andover Ford have extra expertise in dealing with sales to military personnel, not only through having access to special discounts but also by understanding the tax implications of some purchases.

John Sunderland, sales manager at Andover Ford, says his colleagues Nick Martell and Kim Conway-Birks understand the intricacies of special tax arrangements that apply when cars are bought by military staff who are being posted abroad or have other special circumstances.

“Some tax arrangements can bring a considerable saving on the purchase price and, in addition, we are also able to offer special prices to many military personnel,” explains John.

“This can make new car purchase very attractive and for users who need reliable transport, sometimes at awkward times in order to reach out of the way places, having a new car ready and waiting is an attractive option.

“Ford also now has a wider range of models with a four wheel drive option, a transmission that has now been added to the Mondeo, S-MAX and Galaxy and naturally can also be specified on the Kuga SUV.

“Many drivers who never venture off-road may consider 4×4 a luxury but when driving in snow or heavy rain, 4×4 can provide extra grip as well as steering and handling stability. The Ford intelligent all wheel drive (iAWD) is intuitive to use as it thinks for itself about how it can best adapt to prevailing conditions. We have demonstration models available to prove its prowess.”
