Vertu sells Ford Credit's one millionth car
11:14am Wednesday 18th December 2013 in Business
NORTH-EAST based Vertu Motors has sold the one millionth car bought on Ford Options Credit to a very happy customer.
In honour of being the one millionth customer, Ford Credit paid off the £1,800 interest on Lynn Tucknott’s black Ford Fiesta Titanium, with Ford Credit Managing director David Andrews and Ford Credit marketing manager Adrian Eastland, attending when Bristol Street Motors handed over the car.
Sales team member Carrie-Anne Carmen sold the car to Mrs Tucknott, who was presented with flowers when she came to pick up her new vehicle. It is the first car Mrs Tucknott has bought from Bristol Street Motors.
Mrs Tucknott said: “It was lovely to be honoured in this way and I felt very touched that the dealership and Ford Credit had gone to such trouble to mark the event. My new car is wonderful – and Ford paying off the interest was an unexpected bonus.”
Sam Perfect, general sales manager at Bristol Street Motors Ford Orpington, said: “It is fantastic to be the dealership which has sold Ford Credit’s one millionth car – it is a really huge deal.
"Carrie-Anne is an extremely hard-working colleague who always provides the exemplary level of customer service that customers expect from Bristol Street Motors. Mrs Tucknott initially could not believe she was the landmark customer, but she was very pleased with the reception she got when she went to pick up her car and said it made her feel extremely special.”
