Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) is offering its winter tires financing program again this year.
“The safety benefits of winter tires are well documented and this positive response confirms that many Manitoba vehicle owners have made road safety a priority,” said Gord Mackintosh, minister responsible for MPI, in a release. “The purpose of this low-interest winter tire financing program is to allow Manitobans, who otherwise might not be financially able to do so, to equip their vehicles with winter tires.”
MPI will provides low-interest financing for up to $2,000 toward the purchase of winter tires and associated costs, including rims, mounting, balancing, taxes and fees.
In order to participate, retailers must register with Manitoba Public Insurance. Once a customer is authorized, retailers will then fax the customer’s application form directly to an Autopac agent, and will be paid directly by Manitoba Public Insurance for the applicable amount of the transaction within 30 days, up to the $2,000 maximum. Amounts exceeding $2,000 should be collected directly from the customer by the retailer.
