Retail Check

A game-changing, sophisticated digital pricing-platform provided by Autotrader. Retail Check prices a car live to the current market.It analyses all the competition out there, every single like-for-like car advertised for sale. Powered by over 8 million daily advert views on AutoTrader, Retail Check is able to produce by far the most accurate fair market value for almost any car of any type. It takes into account the live market supply, the make, model, specification, mileage, model year and plate as well as any optional equipment fitted. Pretty much everything that's important when calculating a fair used car price. This means it's 100% relative to the current market supply. Of course we have a small desired profit, but this way you have the peace-of-mind you're paying the right price. This makes for a convenient, open and honest car buying experience.

This is the future of used car pricing our cars are priced at a fair market value. Don't just take our word for it, have a look, you'll see every single price is unique, no rounding-up to the nearest thousand.

Car Sourcing

What is car sourcing?

Put simply, car sourcing is YOU (the buyer) commissioning US (the seller) to locate, prepare and supply your next car.

What are the advantages?

  • You save time – no more wasted journeys to see cars that aren’t as described.
  • You save money – we don’t pay for advertising, sales people and day-to-day valeting so quoted prices take this into account.
  • You get the right car – you select the colour, specification, age and mileage and your budget.
  • You get peace of mind – all major mechanical components guaranteed for 3 months.
  • Your car comes with a clean bill of health – 12 months MOT, a Service and a 141 point pre-delivery inspection makes sure of this.
  • Expert view – we are experienced in buying cars and can evaluate each one quickly and honestly for you.

How does it work?

An initial meeting is held to achieve the following:

  • Confirmation of the make, model and specification of the vehicle you’re after and any special requirements you have.
  • Confirmation of your budget and intended payment method.
  • Payment of a £500 (GBP) initial deposit (fully refundable in the event that we are unable to locate what it is you are looking for within the time period agreed).
  • Unless agreed otherwise, a period of 28 days, commencing one working day after the day of the initial meeting, is needed to locate your vehicle.
  • Available vehicles are screened and qualifying vehicle’s details are sent to you – this typically includes at least three images, past service-history and previous keeper information.
  • Once you have chosen a vehicle, a second deposit of 50% of the remaining balance is due.
  • Within 72 hours of 4), an Estimated Date of Delivery is confirmed.
  • The remaining balance is due at the time of collection.
