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.

Imperial Motor Company Used Car

Must say a massive thank you to Steve and Kevin.

We recently purchase our VW Caravelle from Imperial Motor Company and must say a massive thank you to Steve and Kevin for all of their help. We live a long way away and so were apprehensive at making such a large purchase over the internet. The description on the internet was very thorough and a more than fair description of the vehicle. If anything the vehicle was undersold, we are so impressed with it. Steve was always on hand to answer any questions we had, and sent down many more photos as we requested very promptly. They kept us completely informed about the deal at all stages, doing the MOT test and service before pick up and were on hand to pick me up in the vehicle at the train station. They were most helpful on arrival and explained everything on the car to me, but also left me enough space to go over the vehicle myself. All of the paperwork had been filled in as much as it could be ready to make the deal go through as efficiently as it could.

We are more than happy with the vehicle and with every aspect of the deal and would not hesitate to recommend Imperial Motor Company to everyone.
