Public Sector Workers Missing Out on Unbeatable Car Deals


LONDON, Aug. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- People employed across the public sector could be missing out on significant discounts when they buy a car. Thanks to Lincoln-based business, The Motor Source Group, professionals including doctors, nurses, firefighters, civil servants and teachers could save thousands of pounds on buying a car.

The Motor Source Group was set up by ex-soldier Steve Thornton who found that he had an aptitude for car sales when he left the Army. MSG and its sister company Forces Cars Direct (which serves current and retired servicemen and women) are both aimed at giving recognition to those who serve and protect our society in all manner of ways by working to get them significant discounts when they buy a car.

“Those who work in the public services do a fantastic job which we all value very highly,” Steve said from his office in Lincoln, “It’s been a difficult few years for them and I’m very proud that we can offer them something in return for the great work they do.

“Every deal that we broker at The Motor Source Group is suited to the individual customer who we’re finding a car for,” Steve explains, “Which includes finding a payment plan suited to them. As a result, the discount we get for each customer varies slightly. We’re confident, however, that we’re able to get a far better deal for our customers than they’d find anywhere else, in the vast majority of cases a discount of several thousands of pounds. It is incredibly rewarding to see the difference our deals make to our customers and their families.”

The Motor Source Group (2013) is part of FCD Ltd, which has sold over 22,000 cars since it was founded in 2001 and made over £60 million of savings for its customers.
