After news of more enhanced lockdowns being put in place across the UK, eBay Motors Group is once again creating a Covid-19 lockdown support package for dealer partners. This latest support package will help alleviate the impact of restrictions in place on automotive retailers.

The pandemic has unfortunately hit motor dealers hard, as many continue to work from home or spend less time out on the roads the market has definitely seen better days. It’s great to see eBay COVID-19 lockdown support for this sector of the economy, and if by any chance you’re in the market for a vehicle upgrade make sure you browse eBay Motors to see what’s on offer.

“We are proud to have been able to support dealers last year with discounting in April, May, June and December and will support them again in February. This comes at substantial cost to our business and underlines our long-term commitment to being a key automotive industry partner.
