Bajans flock to car expo
Deals were brokered and discussed when Barbadians seeking to upgrade their vehicles attended the recent CarExpo hosted by Signia Finance and United Insurance.
Scores of bargain-seekers braved the threat of rain and were present at the Wildey Gymnasium to check out a wide range of used vehicles including cars, SUV’s, pick-ups and panel vans.
For the event, United Insurance offered a special 15 per cent discount on vehicle insurance that several car-owners took advantage of.
“The response was encouraging, inspite of the weather. This is the third time that we partnered with Signia and we were pleased with the interest shown by new clients and potential clients” said Carl Norris, Underwriting Manager – Barbados for United Insurance.
Representatives of United Insurance also used the event to promote other motor products, such as the value- added Auto Rescue road-side assistance programme which is part of United’s Star-Treatment Programme. This Programme also allows clients to benefit from discounts at Star Treatment Partners.
Around 10 used-car dealers took the opportunity to showcase their vehicles during the one-day CarExpo and among them were Universal Motors, West N Motors, Momla Transport, Premier pre-owned Vehicles, EDM sales, Pioneer Motors and others.
