Glews sells car from Afghanistan

A recent car sale at Glews Garage in Goole proves that we really are part of a global economy. Glews sold a car to a young man from Barnsley last week after he first viewed the car online whilst serving with the armed forces in Afghanistan.

He was home for a few days on leave and called Glews salesman Richard Madison to check if the Peugeot 308 diesel was still available. When he heard it was he came straight over, sealed the deal and picked up the car before heading off to enjoy the rest of his short leave from Afghanistan.

Sales Manager Adrian MacLauchlan said “we were able to turn the car sale around within 24 hours so that the young soldier could spend precious time with his family before heading back to his duties. We are certainly seeing enquires and customers from further afield nowadays as people use the internet to search for good value cars and are prepared to travel for the right deal, but I can safely say that Afghanistan is the furthest away so far!”
