11 Mar Serving armed forces and veterans in Essex can save over £5K on a dream car
Serving armed forces personnel and UK veterans in Essex have special access to year-round discounts on a brand new car or motorbike of their dreams, thanks to specialist car group, Motorfinity.
According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), it is estimated that there are currently approximately 2.4million personnel serving under Her Majesty’s Armed Forces (Regular or Reserve) residing in households across the UK, including at Essex barracks.
While many serving armed forces continue to work overseas, over 5,000 members have faced new challenges on UK soil in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, many armed forces teams have taken on the task of working in hospitals and vaccine centres across the country in an effort to help support the fight against the virus.
Over the past year, a further 800 defence medics have also supported the efforts of NHS workers, swapping the front line on the battlefield for the front line of hospitals across the UK.
Since its launch in 2016, Motorfinity has provided support for members of the armed forces and defence community by enabling them to purchase a brand new car for less. Through its partnership with over 30 popular car manufacturers including Vauxhall, SEAT, Volkswagen, Land Rover, Audi and BMW, Motorfinity offers eligible customers savings of over £5,000 per vehicle.
Daniel Briggs, Managing Director at Motorfinity, is proud to be giving back to those working within the armed forces and defence community as well as veterans who have worked tirelessly to get the country back on its feet. He said:
“Veterans, serving personnel and reserves have played a vital role in our country’s history but their jobs have altered dramatically in the last 12 months, with thousands swapping their uniforms for healthcare attire as they tirelessly work alongside our NHS to save lives.
“We owe a great debt to armed forces personnel in our past and present. Many of the Motorfinity team have family members who served or continue to serve, and we’ve all been touched by the efforts of veterans such as Sir Captain Tom Moore who demonstrated his long-standing resilience throughout 2020.
“We’re proud to be able to give something back to people who have done so much for us as a country, and to thank them for all their continued hard work to keep us all safe.”
