How to remove the 2 week charge point panic?

charge point panic

Here’s a charge point tip for all those with an electric vehicle or full hybrid on order…

Most people (in this situation) wait until the dealership or car leasing company contact them and say, ‘your car will arrive in 2 weeks’, and then they start panicking as they need a charge point installed immediately.

Well, here’s some useful information.

You can have your charge point fitted as soon as you’ve got the order form from the dealership or car lease company, which is usually when you place the initial order.

You don’t have to wait until they say ‘your car will be delivered in 2 weeks’.

There I’ve said it. It’s out in the open. It’s in the public domain. It’s not a secret anymore.

It’s true!

And you can still claim the £350 grant too (if you qualify). We just need a copy of the order form; it doesn’t matter if your car isn’t arriving for another 6 months.

It’ll cost you the same paying for the installation now, as it would do 3 to 6 months down the line.

So, why not take the stress away and remove that last 2-week panic, which most people seem determined to put themselves through.

…make life less stressful, and apply now at
