Warranties are becoming an increasingly vital factor in used van and truck sales during the present market boom, says Broadway Motor Company.
The GE-owned used light commercial vehicle specialist says that the strong market is being fuelled on the forecourt by small business people buying quality used vehicles as an alternative to new – and that the reassurance a warranty provides is crucial to their thinking.
National sales leader Ian Griffiths explained: “It is clearly something that buyers are thinking about in detail. They want to ensure that the warranty will cover them against as many eventualities as possible. This is something that we try and meet by providing what we describe as ‘no nonsense’ cover.”
The company’s warranty provides a minimum of three month’s or 3,000 miles of cover for engine, gearbox and driveline, electrical items, steering system and driving controls.
