Running at Ford Dealers across the country this month, the “Time to Trade” promotion is offering commercial vehicle operators the chance to get their hands on a Ford Transit, Ireland’s best selling van at a seriously reduced price.
The ever popular Transit is the centre-piece of the Ford promotion which is running at Downey’s Auto Stop, Portlaoise; Colton Ford Tullamore; and James Hamill, Ferbane, this month.
“With €1500 off a new Transit, we are hoping to tempt van operators who have perhaps been forced to put off renewing their vehicles because of the economic downturn” says Pat Brazil, Ford Ireland Commercial Vehicle Sales and Marketing Manager. “Our message to those customers is: there has never been a better time to talk to us about a trade in”.
As part of the “Time to Trade” promotion, deals are available across the Ford range during February. Models featured in the promotion include: the feisty Fiesta Van – great value with new lower 2011 prices; the popular Focus Van; the ever-dependable, ever-flexible Transit Connect; and the rugged Ford Ranger. Both the Transit Connect and Fiesta Van picked up Continental Irish Van of the Year awards for 2010.
The iconic Transit has just celebrated 45 years on the go and has been the backbone to business in Ireland since it first arrived here. Over six million have been put to work all over the world – with more than 120,000 here in Ireland – and no other commercial vehicle comes close to it in terms of hours spent at hard graft. With over 100 configurations, it is the ultimate in versatility – whatever the task at hand, there is a Transit to suit it. In these times, all operators are looking for reliability in their vehicles, and their continuing faith in Transit is a testament to its dependability.
“We guarantee customers the best deal on trade-ins for any of our award-winning range so drop in or call and talk to us about upgrading your commercial vehicle for 2011,” says your local Ford Dealer.
