  1. I have price checked, how are you able to sell your cars so much cheaper than other retailers?

We have over 100 years of combined experience in the used and nearly new UK car trade, with relationships built up over decades. This allows us to source cars at extremely competitive prices. We also don’t have expensive to run showrooms or a large workforce. All these savings we pass on directly to our customers.

  1. You have a car advertised that I am interested in, can I view and drive it before committing to buy?

Simply click on the reserve option on the listing and we will arrange for you to view and test the vehicle. Click on the buy option next to the vehicle you like to buy it right now.

All vehicles are supplied with either the balance of the manufacturer’s warranty or an extended 1 year warranty, whichever is greater.

  1. Is the price I see on the website the price I will pay for the vehicle?

Absolutely. Often people go to buy an advertised car and find there are various other charges on top. Or the specific vehicle advertised is sold but there is a similar car available for £500 more. These practices are called upselling and cross-selling and are used by many of our competitors. WE DO NOT UPSELL, the price you see is the price you will pay. We do NOT charge an admin fee nor do we charge for our warranties.

No. Again this is common practice with some retailers but we only advertise vehicles which we own or are coming into stock.
