Here at Sandicliffe, we understand how important it is to provide our buyers with all the necessary documentation before selling a used car. Recent scandals have found big-name car dealers as selling insurance write-offs without buyers being aware of previous damages, even worse, as having a clean history.
It’s sad to see that buyers have been conned into overpaying for cars that have been classed as write-offs and as the BBC One series, Rip Off Britain, claimed, this “could mean buyers are paying thousands of pounds more for the cars than they are really worth”.
So, in light of this, we wanted to take the opportunity to remind you of our never-ending commitments to our customers when it comes to our preparation of used cars.
One of the many benefits you will receive as a Sandicliffe customer is our 100% Lifetime Ownership Guarantee. What this means is that every vehicle available to purchase in our Used Cars range has been HPI checked and we can guarantee the lifetime history of each car.
Each HPI Check will produce a thorough report documenting the vehicle’s past and checking it against any fraudulent activity, mainly whether it has been written off, stolen or has any outstanding finance attached to it. At Sandicliffe, you will receive complete transparency from the very moment you step into one of our showrooms where you can rest easy knowing you are in safe hands.
As AA Approved Dealers, we will also make sure each used car has undergone AA’s approved 128-point examination as well as being inspected by manufacturer-approved technicians.
We take great pride in our work and continually strive to provide the best service to each and every one of our customers. This means our specialist technicians have all received expert training to ensure they can easily recognise and assess any previous damages, eliminating any chance of selling on a write-off.
