’s Easter Deals

Easter is almost upon us. In the run up to the holiday, that normally brings with it the first glimpses of good weather and the desire to go away for a short break, has decided to put together some rather exciting offers to help you save some pennies.

The first of the three great deals is that customers can save £25 off their order when they purchase 4 Hankook tyres. The only stipulation with this is that the 4 Hankook tyres have to be the same size and model. This will be running until the end of March.

On top of this great offer, if a customer is buying tyres and chooses the mail order option then they will be happy to know that delivery is free until the end of March. This should be of interest to motorbike owners in particular, as all motorbike tyres sold through at moment are sent out mail order.

The final deal we have put together is a double celebration of sorts. This is because at the start of March we began a fantastic full service option for all motorists looking to benefit from a highly tuned, vehicle specific, competitively priced service for their car.

So, as it is the time of year for a spring clean and it is always a good idea to keep your car maintained regularly, we are adding a further incentive to having a full car service booked through – every person that books a full service will be sent a single-use voucher that will entitle them to £20 off their next tyre purchase. This offer will run until the end of April and the voucher will be valid until the end of the year.

A Growing Vehicle History Report Company Takes The Next Step Into The World Of Television Commercial Advertising

Nic Taylor, assistant producer at the television commercial production agency, helped create the concepts for the CarProof commercials. “We both wanted something witty and creative that would get CarProof recognized by everyone.

We made sure to pick the right actors and their portrayal of the characters helped make this commercial so appealing to the audience.” says Jenny Munford, owner of Creative Bube Tube.

vehicle history report helps both consumers and dealerships to gather detailed information regarding a used vehicle. This includes past accidents, liens, odometer discrepancies and more. The new ads will highlight these services as well as provide situations the viewers can relate to and understand the importance of these reports. “I’m very excited to see the commercial on television. We expect a great response and hopefully will get the point across that getting a vehicle history report on a used car is a smart decision. Creative Bube Tube has put their full force behind us and the results look amazing!” stated Joe Varkey, VP Marketing at CarProof.
