The Government confirmed during this week’s Labour Party Conference (28 September) that it will extend the popular scrappage scheme for a further 100 000 vehicles. Coupled with this, vans over eight years old will now qualify, rather than the current 10-year requirement. vans over eight years old will now qualify, rather than the current 10-year requirementvans over eight years old will now qualify, rather than the current 10-year requirement
The ‘deals for new wheels’ scrappage scheme - announced in the Chancellor’s last Budget – promises to give punters knock down prices on any new car or van when they trade in vehicles (up to 3.5 tons).
Simon Culley, marketing manager of commercial vehicles at Vauxhall, says: “Vauxhall is delighted to be exhibiting at Interbuild to offer the scrappage scheme to visitors. This is a really positive step forward for the CV sector and we are sure that the Chancellor’s plans will benefit the trades.
“Interbuild is a must attend event for Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles with its wide audience of industry professionals. By bringing the right selection of vehicles to meet the wants and needs of this audience we always manage to get excellent levels of data capture and valuable sales leads. With the scrappage scheme in place we are sure Interbuild Onsite is going to be a roaring success!”
David Pierpoint, Event Director at Interbuild, adds: “During the hard times it’s essential to keep yourself on the road and making money. So this incentive could be just the ticket for visitors looking to scrap their old heaps and get an affordable new van.”
Set to be a real driving force behind this year’s Interbuild Onsite, Vauxhall will be exhibiting a core selection of its medium and large vans, such as the Vivaro and Movano – as well as popular car-derived vans such as the Combo and Astravan.
