Full of phrases, terms and conditions and abbreviated percentages, navigating your way through the complicated world of finance deals on new and used cars can sometimes leave you in the dark. Popping into the impressive premises of Marshall Ford, Bury St Edmunds one afternoon last month, I was a little wary of the packages myself, having heard so many horror stories in the past. Sitting down with Business Manager Ian Stackman, his overwhelming sense of care and passion for both his customers and job radiated throughout our whole meeting. “I just can’t bear it when people come to me having paid over the odds for their last car, or with the wrong financial package for their personal needs, or having been given the wrong advice” he explained. “They end up taking out a huge loan on a car they shouldn’t have bought, and two years down the line, find themselves drowning in debt.” Having moved to Marshall Ford after working as a Banking Advisor, Ian’s background enables him to push the boundaries with his customers, working to their budget and ultimately giving them a realistic outlook on their motoring choices. “If they simply can’t afford a car they’ve got their eye on, it’s up to me to find them one that’s suitable, without breaking the bank,” he explained. “Rather than taking out a bank loan that offers no protection, we can work out the best solution for them whilst offering consumer protection with their purchase.” “Taking into account the overall picture, I talk through savings plans, and any existing loans and effectively work out what they can afford given each circumstance.” Truly looking after each and every customer, Ian’s caring nature, perfectly mirrored by the friendly team found in the Bury St Edmunds based, ensures that no corner is left unturned as he works out the best financing solution for all. When she bought a Ford Fiesta Zetec Sport from the dealership, Director Melissa Stannard could not have been happier with the service she received from Ian. “Marshall’s were extremely helpful, advising on the best way to purchase a vehicle for business benefits,” she explained. “The sales team were fantastic and made the sale very smooth and easy to understand. The finance rates were better than a bank loan, so it was a no brainer!” Article by Georgie Campbell Ian Stackman Business Manager For more information on the finance options available at Marshall Ford, contact Ian Stackman on 01284 732500.
