There’s a lot of confusion to why you are asked to pay an admin fee when buying a used car, what you may not know is that it covers you for a range of amenities.
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.
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.
We can provide you with the history of previous owners and the history of the vehicle.
With 10 litres your first trip with your new car won’t be to the fuel station.
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.
We will make sure your new car is cleaned inside and out.
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.
