Why We Charge an Admin Fee…

At Sandicliffe Approved Used Cars we charge an admin fee of £99 when you purchase a used vehicle from us. The admin fee pays towards the preparation of your new car, to make sure it’s safe and immaculate when you drive it away.

The fee covers the following:

Full HPI and Mileage check

An HPI check produces a report of the vehicle's history and tells you if the vehicle has outstanding finance on it, if it was stolen, written off, clocked or changed/modified in any way. The mileage check compares the vehicle’s mileage history against different sources such as MOT history to see if there has been a dramatic change in the mileage between each MOT.

Vehicle Provenance Guarantee

We can provide you with the history of previous owners and the history of the vehicle.

10 Litres of Fuel

With 10 litres your first trip with your new car won’t be to the fuel station.

75-Point Check

From checking the tyre pressure to making sure there’s enough wiper fluid, our 75-point check will ensure that your new vehicle is safe and fit to drive.

Full Valet

We will make sure your new car is cleaned inside and out.

Up to 7 Days free insurance

With our insurance, you will have plenty of time finding the best insurance for your new car while still being able to drive it.

Yes, you could pay for these individually after purchasing a car, however by paying a onetime sum at Sandicliffe Approved Used Cars, you can save time and confusion with all these being done for you, so you can drive away with nothing to worry about.
