Motor Source launches leasing service

  • Motor Source provides public service staff with new option for low cost motoring
  • Extends new leasing programme to ‘friends and family’ members
  • Commercial vehicles available through Motor Source for the first time

 

Lincoln, UK, 13 March 2017: Motor Source Group, the online car dealership, has launched motorsourceleasing.com, a new vehicle leasing, finance and sourcing service to cut the cost of motoring for public service workers in the UK.

 

The nationwide service builds on Motor Source’s existing discounted car business, which is popular with police, NHS and fire service personnel, by providing current and former UK public servants with an alternative way of acquiring a new vehicle. Other qualifying professions include the prison service, military and teaching.

 

Customers can obtain a wide range of cars, vans, minibuses and even trucks through Motor Source Leasing on flexible business or personal contract hire terms. Vehicles are available with low initial deposits on a range of contract lengths. Manufacturer warranties, vehicle tax and breakdown cover are included on all contracts as standard.

 

Steve Thornton, managing director of Motor Source Group, says: “Leasing is becoming a very popular way of buying new cars. It is cheaper than buying cars outright, customers can get a new car every two or three years and there is no risk of depreciation. With our new Motor Source Leasing service we are helping public servants cut their cost of motoring and extending our offers to their friends and family too. It’s a flexible, no risk way of driving a new vehicle at a lower cost.”

 

With the launch of motorsourceleasing.com, Motor Source is also creating a ‘friends and family’ scheme to make its new service more widely available. Offers available through the new service can be extended to any UK-based motorist referred to Motor Source by a current or former public sector employee.

 

Special offers for qualifying UK public servants, their friends and family

 

To celebrate its launch, Motor Source has announced 10 personal contract hire special offers that are available at motorsourceleasing.com until the end of March 2017. All prices quoted include VAT and are based on 10,000 miles a year:
