Buy your next car online

Online purchasing is now a way of life for millions of us, and more so in recent times. So would you consider buying your next car online? 

Many car dealerships offer online car purchase services, meaning you could buy your new car without leaving home. However, if you aren’t quite sure on the car you want and are looking for a test drive, most dealers are allowing unaccompanied test drives from the showroom or your home. 

What Happens If I Change My Mind?

You should be protected when you buy online, but don’t forget to read the terms and conditions to be clear on your rights. For example, you may find that some dealerships allow a 14-day ‘cooling off’ period, this means you have 14 days to decide whether or not you want to keep the car. If you were to change your mind within the 14 days, you could hand the car back. Again, make sure you read the small print to ensure there are no hidden costs if you choose to return the car.

Getting Your Car When Buying Online

Dependent on the dealership, some are offering Home Delivery and others are offering Click and collect. If you need to part exchange your car, it is likely that the dealer can arrange this when you collect, or they deliver your new car.
