How To Buy Online
Since the birth of the internet the way dealers market and sell their cars has changed dramatically. At Imperial Motor Company we recognised the change very early on and have sold cars literally all over the world (Australia currently holding the distance record!).
The internet brings us all a lot closer together, so how do you buy a car online and feel safe? After all you will be spending a considerable amount of money so you need security.
We have currently sold hundreds of cars over the internet and a lot of those purchases have been made purely on the strength of an honest description. It goes without saying these days that all our cars are HPI checked and before leaving the showroom are given a thorough pre delivery inspection and service where due, also your car will have a new MOT if applicable.
We have found that customers who are travelling a long distance often wish to turn up and take the car away there and then. The best way of doing this is to have a chat with us on the phone to get a full description of the car. We can work out a price for part exchange and arrange finance so that everything is in place when you arrive to see the car for yourself.
If you wish to buy in this way and have the car of your choice ready and waiting we would take a deposit in the first instance and then get the car into the workshops for its pre delivery inspection. When it’s convenient for you to collect we can have it prepared so that it’s ready for when you arrive so that you can inspect it yourself.
If in the unlikely event of the car not being what you had expected then we will of course refund your deposit. We also can arrange nationwide delivery at very reasonable rates and in some cases overseas shipping.
There is an online deposit system which allows you to safely secure your next car via PayPal or alternatively this can be taken over the phone using your credit or debit card. Of course we still sell a huge majority of our cars face to face and much prefer meeting our customers to discuss their requirements but we also appreciate this is not always possible for the long distance buyer.
If you wish to discuss this method of purchase then please give us a call - we would be glad to hear from you.
