Ford receives 30,000th scrappage order | Motoring News | Honest John


People planning on buying a car from Ford under the scrappage scheme are certainly not alone, if new figures are anything to go by.

Statistics released by the manufacturer have revealed that it has taken its 30,000th order under the cash for bangers initiative.

The vehicle in question was a Transit van and was bought by Quick Electrical Services in Southampton.

Boss Dave Quick explained the company wanted to trade in its Volkswagen van and Ford was offering the best package around.

He stated: "We needed something newer, bigger and better – and looked at every option before settling on the Transit."

In order to be eligible to take part in the government scrappage scheme, van owners must have a vehicle that was registered before March 2002.

Meanwhile, people looking at buying a car under the initiative need a model that is at least two years older.

In other news, Ford recently reminded young motorists about the importance of regular vehicle maintenance.
