Motor dealerships reopening is a welcome move

Commenting ahead of the 1 June reopening date for car dealerships in England, Adrian Dally, Head of Motor Finance at the Finance & Leasing Association, said:

“With increasing numbers of people returning to work, the reopening of car dealerships will be very welcome. Motor finance lenders are vitally important to the motor industry, and they’re ready to support customer purchases as they did before the Covid-19 crisis.”

Sue Robinson, Director at the NFDA added: “As lockdown measures start to ease, many of us will need cars to get back to work and it is crucial that automotive retailers are open to serve the workforce. They have been working hard to put all the necessary measures in place to ensure social distancing can be observed, and we look forward to welcoming customers back into showrooms”.
