UK: 75 per cent of motorists delay new car purchases until showrooms re-open
Over two thirds of motorists are waiting for showrooms to re-open before purchasing a new car according to a new web poll by Motorpoint.
The online survey on the Motorpoint website found 75 per cent of people were choosing to delay their purchasing decision until non-essential retail is allowed to reopen. Some 1,781 people took part in the study by the UK’s largest independent car retailer, which has a network of stores across England, Scotland and Wales.
Mark Carpenter, Chief Executive Officer of Motorpoint, said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming visitors into our stores in England and Wales once again. We have been incredibly busy over recent months supporting customers across the UK to buy online with our contactless Home Delivery and Reserve & Collect services, but nothing beats seeing your customers face to face and I know our teams in England and Wales can’t wait to once again be helping customers in person. We’ve had a really strong response from the public to our re-opening in Scotland on Easter Monday and we are looking forward to it being equally busy in-store in England and Wales when we fully re-open our branch network next week.”
