Clean Air Zone Scrappage Scheme Review

We had a great experience buying our car at Motorpoint Birmingham. Amy helped us on all of our visits and gave us really helpful advice without ever being pushy. Communication between visits was always great too. Once we decided on a car we had as much time as we needed to test drive and check it over before committing. We were the first customers to take advantage of Birmingham City Council’s clean air scrappage scheme which was a huge bonus for us. The car was spotless inside and out when we collected it.
