All you need to make a decision is available online, save actually talking the car out to the roads and seeing how it performs.
Read authorised reviews online, read blogs and generally immerse yourself in the huge volume of car-related literature to be found before coming to a preliminary decision.
Buying online also allows you to compare models within your budget, searching cars by cost, body type (saloon, hatchback etc) features (sunroof, sat-nav etc) and more.
You can often organise a test-drive though a manufacturer's website, making even this aspect of buying all the more convenient.
There's a difference between buying a book and buying a new car online but the only real difference is one of scale. Your trust in the vendor has to increase commensurate with your increased financial exposure, which is why we draw on our eight years experience in the trade to reassure you all the way through the buying process.
Once you have used our website to specify your car and options choices you will inevitably have questions you need answering.
That's why the final part of your sale will be finessed by one of our support team who will talk to you about warranty, about the lack of hidden charges, about our prices including delivery tax, about how your car will be delivered to your door, about the time you will have to wait for your car...
