In response to the impact of the flood event in Queensland, Hyundai Motor Company Australia has announced a Vehicle Assistance Programme available to people affected by the disaster.
The programme is designed to provide additional assistance to those in the community who need to replace their current vehicle because of flood damage.
Any private car owner in Queensland who has either had their motor vehicle written off by their insurance company due to flood damage or who trade-in their severely water damaged vehicle will be entitled to $1,000 (incl. GST) assistance from Hyundai and the Northern Region Hyundai Dealer Network following the purchase of a new Hyundai vehicle from a Northern Region Hyundai Dealer (including Tweed, Ballina and Lismore in northern New South Wales).
The $1,000 (incl. GST) is paid in the form of a cheque directly from Hyundai Motor Company Australia to the customer and is in addition to and separate to any retail offers applicable at the time of the vehicle purchase.
The programme commenced 26th January 2011 and will initially run through to 31st March 2011 and may be extended subject to customer take up.
In addition to the Vehicle Assistance Programme, Hyundai has provided a number of vehicles to the Ipswich Council to support their community rebuild efforts over the coming months. The company has also donated $100,000 to the Premier’s Disaster Relief Fund, whilst also committing, together with the National Hyundai Dealer Network, to donate $10 for every retail car sold in the first quarter of 2011 (estimated to raise approximately $200,000) and will continue to assist wherever possible at this difficult time.
