You Get What You Pay For

The Situation

So, you've seen an incredible price on a new car. You've checked several websites and nothing competes with the price advertised. You've sorted out your finance, got a car insurance quotation, and are set up to contact the website and make an enquiry. You've even found a willing buyer for your current car... but then it all goes wrong... it's not really new (an old model / an already registered car), it's only available in Ochre and you'll have to collect from Aberdeen!

The Reasons

Generally, online brokers just want the enquiry. They will make an offer that they know will make the phone ring and then just sell you into something else, or a not-so-good deal. You're hot, and interested and they take full advantage of this.

So, how do they do it? Well, it's easy really... First, you bundle all new and nearly new cars together in your new cars section, you can probably find out whether this is the case in the small-print. The trouble is that 'nearly new' cars are the cheapest of the offers, but also the most limited - having one colour on offer, not the specification you want and probably charges to add on top (booking fee, delivery charge etc.).

So when you do enquire, guess what? It's not really a new car at all and you feel like you've been duped!

The Concerns

So, when looking for your next new car, be aware of the pitfalls and make sure that it is a new car, delivered to you, all taxes paid for. At CarQuake, we believe that this is what customers want, and is what our dealers deliver.

Therefore, regardless of whether we have the best price across all websites for your next new car, you can be sure that you are getting what you paid for.

“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.”
