The forces favourite for new car bargains
In association with Cuff Miller Co Ltd, Ford Dealer to the Military


Below is from an email received recently from Toyota Export in UK to a customer in Cyprus regarding importing a new Toyota RAV4....

"I am copying to Stan at ACE so that he can advise you directly. We always recommend his services to our customers in Cyprus as he offers exceptional shipping rates and smooths the whole clearance and delivery process; in all the years that we have worked with him we have only ever had delighted feedback from our customers".

Money Saving Expert says:   In the Forces? Cut up to 25% off a new car Some car dealers have special deals with manufacturers, meaning members of the UK’s armed forces can get up to 25% off a car’s list price. One dealer,, does this. Its cars are supplied through the UK via UK main dealers and aren’t imports. They also have full UK warranties. Often there’s a choice between purchasing them tax-free if you’re going to be posted overseas or tax-paid if you’re going to use them in the UK.
