For those of us who drive to work, it’s said that the average commuter spends just short of an hour getting to and from work each day. Generally speaking, annual commuting time is up 18 hours against a decade ago, meaning more of us are travelling further and longer for work.
With the work commute playing a fundamental part of our day around 250 days of the year, it makes sense that you’d want to make it as comfortable as possible.
Many of us have dreamt about owning that one special car since we were young, but unfortunately, now that we’re adults, it’s not always as easy as walking into a dealership, handing over the cash outright and picking up the keys.
If you haven’t given up on your dream, there are many other accessible ways that you can get your hands on that car – so here’s what you can do.
Local retailer, Evans Halshaw with locations in Hull and Beverley, is celebrating this week as one of the most-loved cars produced in the UK, the Vauxhall Astra, comes off the Vauxhall production line for the four millionth time.
The iconic vehicle, which was first produced back in 1979, has sold almost 20 million units across Europe since launch and has continually evolved to meet changing consumer demands.
Local Vauxhall retailer, Evans Halshaw, has responded to the increase in fuel costs for drivers over the past year by giving away £500 worth of free fuel.*
With the average driver now spending an extra £6.48** at the pumps every time they fill up compared to this time last year, Evans Halshaw is helping those who buy a new Vauxhall between 28th April and 7th May 2017 to make their money go further with a £500 fuel card.
Government changes to the Vehicle Excess Duty (VED) will see a radical overhaul of how cars are taxed as of 1st April meaning the cost of ownership could increase. Local Vauxhall retailer, Evans Halshaw, is highlighting how these changes will impact on motorists.
The updated road tax measures will affect buyers of new cars as the revision of the vehicle tax bands could see motorists pay more for VED from April 2017. With that in mind, Evans Halshaw is recommending that motorists in the market for a new car consider buying it before the changes come into force.
With spring bank holidays just around the corner Evans Halshaw is helping motorists in Hull and Beverley make the most of their family time with £500 spending money.*
Those who buy a new 17-plate Vauxhall from Evans Halshaw with locations in Hull and Beverley, between 17th and 21st March will be treated to this exciting offer and will drive off with a pre-paid debit card to spend on anything they want.
