When a Deal is 'Hot'

The Situation

A price on CarQuake catches your eye. It's exactly the car that you want and much cheaper than you've seen anywhere else. You know it's new, you know it's from a franchised dealer, and you're sure that you've got the resources to buy it.

You think about it for a week or so, and then return to CarQuake, but the offers not there any more... it's gone. Although the new price is good, it's a bit disappointing to start considering paying more than you thought you would for your new car.

The Reasons

At CarQuake, to get the best deals from franchised dealers, we allow them 24/7 access to the prices they're willing to sell their cars. This means that at any time, they can increase or reduce their offers on any of the cars they have. Often a really good offer will be for a set period of time, but if there's a 'run' on that car, they are entirely within their rights to withdraw that offer early.

The Outcomes

The only advice we can sensibly give to CarQuake users is: if you see a great price, talk to the dealer as soon as possible.

You can then gauge the urgency of that offer, but also discuss anything else you need to with the dealer. Even then you're not forced to commit, but if you're ready to buy, with our dealers, you only have to put the standard deposit down and then your car is on its way.

You can then decide when you want it delivered. Oh, and our dealers deliver to most of the UK, so that can be to your front door if you wish... or your office!

“I got a fantastic deal and have ordered a new one for March. I couldn't have found this on my own, as I didn't know you could get a deal on a Micra.”
