ATL Automotive to enhance buying experience

Published:Sunday | March 4, 2018 | 12:00 AM

The ATL Automotive Group is set to enhance the car-buying experience with the launch of ATL Automotive Finance, a one-stop shop for fast and hassle-free auto loans secured directly from ATL Automotive's showrooms in Kingston and Montego Bay.

The launch of ATL Automotive Finance will see car buyers offered competitive interest rates starting as low as 8.25%, flexible payment terms, and a fast 24-hour approval time for up to 100% financing on new and pre-owned cars. There will also be the option to include the loan-processing fees in the initial loan amount to minimise customers' need to find upfront cash.

Mike Ellenthorpe, managing director, ATL Automotive, spoke on the initiative. "This is a strategic move that we've been planning for some time, and one that puts customers in a position of strength to access their dream car with less wait and less hassle. Now, with ATL Automotive Finance, it's never been easier for persons to purchase any Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, Honda, Kia, BMW, or Mini, with this never-before-seen 24-hour approval time as well as access to unique club membership further down the line that will entitle them to a raft of savings on products and services from selected group and third-party companies."

To begin the transaction to purchase the car of their dreams, persons will only need to carry their drivers licence, two recent payslips, a job letter, and proof of address to any finance & insurance specialist at ATL Automotive Finance.

David Noel, chief executive officer, Scotiabank Group Jamaica, who is supporting the venture, noted: "ATL Automotive has been a longstanding partner for us at Scotiabank, and as two companies committed to providing world-class solutions, there was a natural synergy. At Scotiabank, we're always working to make processes more convenient for our customers, and now, with ATL Automotive Finance, we can offer the easiest auto loan process in Jamaica. We're proud to be the first financial institution to pioneer this first-ever 24-hour approval time.
