We offer a range of benefits to the end user that a private seller simply cannot. These include:
- Provision of finance packages; 79% of used vehicles are now bought on finance. If you don't offer finance, which we're guessing you don't, then you are ruling out 4 in 5 potential buyers!
- Part-Exchange; More than half of customers have a part-exchange car. If you don't take part-exchange, you are asking your buyer to sell their car before they buy yours, delaying the process. Chances are they'll look somewhere that will take it.
- Warranty; As vehicles creep out of their manufacturer’s warranty, customers often want an extended warranty for peace of mind. We are pleased to say we offer a 12-month warranty on every single vehicle we sell, no exclusions. We also give customers the opportunity to extend this warranty for up to 5 years. Should your vehicle encounter any issues in the next 12 months they'll be knocking on our door, not yours!
- Additional Products; The vehicle only makes up part of the package a customer expects when they buy a car nowadays. With Service Plans, MOT packages, GAP Insurance, Smart Insurance, Paint Protection, Trackers & Alloy Protect to name a few. By offering the vehicle alone with no option to have additional products, the vast majority of your potential buyers will feel they need to go elsewhere to get the total package they had in mind.
- Peace of Mind; For most people their car is the second biggest purchase they will ever make (behind a house), and now more than ever, car purchases represent a huge amount, often 2 or 3 times somebody's annual income. Parting with that kind of money, it’s no wonder that the vast majority of buyers prefer to buy from a reputable dealer. Only the most daring (or arguably crazy) buyers will want to bank transfer tens of thousands of pounds to a total stranger!
So, it's plain to see why a buyer prefers to shop with a dealer, but that’s not where the benefits to you as a seller end. Not only do we open the door to the 80-90% of potential buyers that you were excluding, but we also offer you (the seller) the following:
