Fordthorne Payment Assist

We know maintenance work can be sometimes difficult to budget for and seem daunting, but by using Fordthorne’s Payment Assist, there is no longer a financial burden if your car needs extra work done to be roadworthy.

The cost of the work can be split across four payments, meaning your car is safe and so is your wallet.

It is as simple as paying a deposit of 25% of the total bill, followed by three equal monthly payments, and is available for any bills totalling over £100.
