JACKSONS has launched a new promotion aimed at first-time car buyers.Your First Car has been designed to offer advice to the purchaser to help make the right choice and includes additional features such as an hour’s instruction with a technician on basic vehicle maintenance and free cosmetic repair insurance for three years to deal with those small dents and scrapes that are likely after taking to the road alone for the first time.
Jacksons general manager Charles Tenant said: ‘Choosing and buying a first car can be a stressful time for both the new driver and their parents. We wanted to try to remove some of that stress by offering a comprehensive package that includes some of the additional products and services we offer to all our customers, but free of charge to Island new drivers and first-time car buyers under the Your First Car scheme.
‘Many people still seem to discount Jacksons, as they perceive we will not have a car to fit their budget. Actually, our portfolio is really very broad and we have cars priced from £5,000.
‘We have a used car stock of around 140 vehicles and over 500 in group stock, while the Volkswagen up! starts from just £8,150 and Smart cars from £7,600.
‘Customers also have the benefit of knowing that all our previously owned cars have undergone a thorough 110-Point Check before being put on the forecourt. They are also backed by a comprehensive warranty scheme offering cover for a minimum of 12 months with the option to extend the period.’
Included in the Your First Car scheme are: Cosmetic repair insurance to cover those almost inevitable little dents and scrapes for up to three years; a driver’s emergency kit and an hour’s vehicle maintenance course with one of Jackson’s senior technicians.
