Time 5 years ago

TRUSTFORD welcomed more than 200 drivers to dealerships across the UK as part of a midnight handover event, allowing customers to be the very first to get their hands on the new 17-plate vehicles.

Staff were on site to greet customers and hand over the keys to their new Ford vehicles as the clock struck midnight yesterday, March 1.

The excited customers were amongst the first in the county to own a vehicle with the brand new 17 plate. Similar handovers took place at Ford Stores across the country including TrustFord’s Dagenham, Epsom and Edgware dealerships.

Mark Scammell, General Manager at TrustFord Dagenham, who welcomed 56 customers to the Dagenham dealership on Tuesday night, said: ‘The plate change every March is always a hugely exciting time for both the automotive industry and new customers looking to pick up cars with the brand new licence plate.

‘We were delighted to welcome so many customers and colleagues to our Dagenham dealership on Tuesday night to mark the special occasion and oversee the handover of these brand new cars.’

TrustFord is the world’s largest dedicated Ford dealer group, with 65 UK-wide dealerships.
