BHPH Report: Byrider offers purchase discount to support first responders
The network of buy-here, pay-here dealerships said on Wednesday that active first responders can receive $500 to $750 off the purchase of a vehicle with proof of employment until May 31 at participating Byrider locations.
Byrider defines first responders to include paramedics, emergency medical technicians, police officers, firefighters, rescuers, military personnel and other trained members of organizations connected with this type of work.
“At Byrider, we wanted to say thank you. With this initiative, we hope to make it more attainable for first responders to secure the reliable transportation they need to get to their important jobs and safely return home to their families at the end of a long shift,” Byrider chief executive officer Craig Peters said in a news release.
“It is simply our way of showing appreciation for the courageous work they are doing every day to keep people safe in our communities,” Peters continued.
The offer will be available at all 31 company-owned Byrider locations in addition to select franchise stores. A complete list of participating locations includes:
Byrider Fort Wayne
Byrider Cincinnati (Beechmont Avenue)
Byrider Cincinnati (Broad Street)
Byrider Pittsburgh (Liberty Avenue)
Byrider Pittsburgh (McKnight Road)
In order to adapt to new social distancing restrictions, Byrider highlighted that its stores added precautions to make the vehicle-buying process as safe as possible for customers and employees. Customers are able to shop inventory online before coming to the store, and whenever possible during their visit, interactions will be limited to one-on-one with communication and payment occurring on mobile devices.
Additionally, Byrider mentioned its stores increased cleaning of common areas, employees meet all CDC handwashing guidelines and vehicles are sanitized before they go on the lot, post test-drive and before delivery.
