Buying

The Car Consultant’s Buying Service​.

Buying a used car is a minefield.

  • Are you time poor?
  • Do you have little understanding of the second-hand car market?
  • Do you know what you want from a car but have no idea where to start?

"I provide independent advice and guidance using my exceptional car knowledge and perfectionist qualities to match you to potential cars. It is important to me that you avoid making a purchase you later regret, and save yourself as much money as possible."

The Process

Using email, telephone, social media messaging or meeting face to face, together we will identify the requirements for your next car.

Using your choices I will go through potentially hundreds of adverts and identify a selection of cars that best match your criteria. Due to my exacting standards, only the best will make the cut.

You will receive an email with my hand-picked selection. Once you have decided which is best for you, the next stage will be making enquiries and test driving. I can do this on your behalf, or we can test drive together. I have a stringent policy on what is and what is not acceptable – Worn brakes, Air-Conditioning not working, uneven tyre wear, are just some of many things which are absolutely unacceptable.

As part of the process I will also ensure details which often get overlooked, such as when a cam belt should be replaced, are checked.

When we have found the car that you want, negotiating is the next, and most exciting part of the process.

Using years of buying experience I can negotiate the best price for you, and help you to understand the small print of warranty paperwork, as well as ensuring you aren’t paying for add-ons that you may not need. 

Once the deal is done, I will support you with all the paperwork that is required and will help you to personalise your new car, whether that is something as small as saving your favourite radio stations and setting ‘home’ on the satellite navigation to arranging window tinting or getting wing mirrors painted the colour you want – the world is your oyster! 

This is an hourly-rate based service, £22 per/hour, with the initial telephone conversation free of charge.
