Vehicle Sales & Preparation

Preparation

In our experience, the requirements and expectations in relation to a car's cosmetic condition are different for each private individual or motor trade professional looking to purchase a car from us. We appreciate that some people prefer a car that is cosmetically prepared to a high 'showroom' standard and are prepared to pay a premium price for this, yet others may be simply looking to purchase the best 'value for money' car and are willing to accept that there may be signs of inevitable wear and tear, or indeed would prefer to arrange any cosmetic reconditioning themselves.

How often have you been to view a car at a dealer, garage or private sale and the car is not as completely 'as described'?  The awkward moments that follow with the inevitable price-renegotiation or the disappointment of having travelled miles to see something which turns out to be something which it is not. A simple waste of everyone's valuable time.

How are we different?

Firstly, we constantly monitor our prices to ensure we advertise our cars to be the cheapest version of that make and model in relation to its condition, age and mileage within a 50 mile radius of our business. This price is so low that we must state that it's 'non-negotiable'

Secondly, we include a link to a full video presentation of the car in our advertisements. This enables us to provide an accurate description of the car's condition along with the 'recon menu' number for any corresponding cosmetic work required. 

Last but not least, for confidence and piece of mind, all cars that we sell to private individuals are mechanically prepared to the following minimum standards:

  • A full 80 point check by an independent motor technician to identify and repair any items relating to the functionality, lights, fluid levels and most importantly, the safety of the car.
  • A 12 month MOT test (from the date of preparation).
  • Minimum of 3mm tread depth average on each tyre, with the pressures checked accordingly.
  • A 'mini-valet' consisting of a exterior wash & leather with tyre dressing along with an interior vacuum and dashboard wipe-over.
  • A 12 month 'Platinum' comprehensive warranty (unless otherwise stated) backed by our insured warranty providers, Momentum Warranties Ltd. (Please ask for terms and conditions).
  • A Full 'HPi Clear' report check, provided by Experian.

All of the above work is completed BEFORE the car is offered for sale and therefore in most cases (and provided no cosmetic reconditioning has been requested) the cars can be driven away 'same day'.
