Colin Smith MIMI
Looking for your perfect car but don’t have either the time or the inclination to deal direct with Car Dealers?
We will gladly discuss your requirements in detail over the phone, and then at your home or office if you feel that our services are of interest to you. We provide our clients with a superb purchase experience and are always available to provide advice and information on the car of your dreams. Please note that we do not charge the Client a fee for our services as the Dealership that ultimately supplies you with the car will pay us a referral fee (normally 1% to 2% of the sale price) for the introduction. We are completely impartial and will seek the best deal we can for our Client which is backed by our Price Guarantee – please click here for full details. The contract of sale is always between the Client and the Dealership and no monies are ever paid to our brokerage by the Client.
If you have a part exchange, we will appraise your vehicle and then have it underwritten for you, possibly, but not necessarily, by the Dealer supplying you with the New or pre owned car as we can often secure a better price elsewhere. We look after all aspects of the car purchasing experience to ensure you buy the car you want at the right price but without any of the hassle.
We will also help you make an informed decision as to how best to finance (PCP, HP, personal and business leasing etc) your new or used car as car finance plans can be a minefield for many people.
We have considerable experience and Dealership contacts with all the major car franchises including Ferrari, Maserati, McLaren, Bentley, Aston Martin, Land Rover, Jaguar, Porsche, BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Volvo, Volkswagen, Ford, Vauxhall, Toyota, Nissan, Peugeot and Citroen etc.
Please call us on 01422 230689 or contact one of our Regional Offices to discuss your next car purchase.
We can sell your car for you, either as a part exchange, or just to help you maximise the return on your current vehicle without the hassle of trying to sell it privately, dealing with the online car buying websites or hawking it around car dealerships trying to get the best price.
We will first of all take down all the important details of your vehicle, and then we will normally arrange to visit you and appraise the car professionally ourselves, and then discuss whether you want to sell it immediately or whether you would be prepared to offer it to us on a SOR (Sale or Return) basis with a view to securing a better price.
Assuming you wish to sell the car quickly we will agree with you over the telephone a price that we are confident can be quickly realised. We will confirm everything by email with you and we will then use our extensive nationwide network of contacts to find a buyer as soon as possible. Please note that we do not charge the seller for this service at all, we earn our commission from the buyer so it is in our interests to find a buyer for your car as soon as we can. Once we have agreed the purchase of your car with the buyer, collection of the vehicle from your own home or office will be arranged and payment of the agreed price to you will be made, either by bankers draft on the day of collection or more normally by electronic transfer once the buyer has seen the vehicle and is happy everything is in order. Payment would be made using FPS before the buyer leaves your home with the car so that you, the seller, have cleared funds in your account.
If you decide to go down the SOR route, we would then place the vehicle with one of our associated Dealerships, with a properly signed SOR agreement in place between you, the Client, and them, and then return a pre arranged price for the vehicle once it has sold. You can of course ask for the vehicle to be returned to you at any time but this would be on the proviso that any pre agreed reconditioning work required to bring the vehicle up to a standard to enable it to be professionally retailed was paid for before the vehicle was released back to you.
As Professional Car Brokers, we will keep you up to date and “in the loop” with all aspects of the transaction so you can be confident we are realising the best possible price for your car as quickly as possible. Please remember that we do not charge you, the seller, for this service at all as the buyer will pay us a fixed commission (normally 1% to 2% of the purchase price) once the transaction is complete.
Please call Colin Smith, our Head Office Director, on 01422 230689 or mobile 07887 508520 to discuss in detail how we can help you get the best possible price for your car. One of our professional Regional Directors will also be delighted to assist you.
