Buying a new car from a dealership

Buying a new car should be a fun and exciting experience, but there are plenty of things to think about during the process. If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, read on for a guide on how best to go about buying a new car using a reputable dealership like Currie Motors.

Using a trusted dealership

When buying a new car, you’ll want to find a reputable dealership to ensure that your new vehicle ticks all the boxes. At Currie Motors, all staff have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of what buying a car involves, making them perfectly equipped to help you find your ideal car.

Currie Motors have also taken steps to create and maintain a safe, socially distanced sales environment, while ensuring that they continue to provide their famous industry-leading customer service.

Doing your research

There’s definitely a car to suit everyone, but you will need to do some research first to decide what your ideal vehicle is. Consider what you will be using the car for - do you have any specific needs that need to be met? Do you require a larger vehicle with more space, or a smaller, speedier car? It’s also a good idea to think about the motoring costs associated with different models. Find out how much it will cost to run, taking into consideration ongoing costs like fuel, car tax, insurance and potential repairs to make sure it all fits within your budget.

Dealerships tend to have closer relationships with manufacturers, so by going through a dealership you are likely to get more choice - including hybrid vehicles. Currie Motors have a top-level range of compact hatchbacks, sophisticated saloons and luxury SUVs available, providing a wide variety of choice for all types of buyer.

Part-exchange offers

If you’re looking to save yourself a few pennies, trading in your current vehicle might be a good option for you. Currie Motors always offer competitive prices for part-exchange deals, a service that isn’t typically offered by online brokers. This then reduces the need to sell on or get rid of your old vehicle. If you are uncertain about how this process works, the team at Currie Motors are happy to answer any questions you might have, making you feel fully supported throughout the process.

Test driving the vehicle

Once you’ve set your sights on a particular vehicle, it’s time to take it for a test drive. Bear in mind that customers currently have to book an appointment to do this. While a new car should be free from mechanical faults, it’s still important to get a feel for the driving experience. A test drive offers the chance to make sure a potential purchase is comfortable. This is also a good opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the controls.

After-sales support

Once you’ve made the purchase, you’ll want to be able to contact the dealership in case you have any further questions. Currie Motors offer market-leading after-sales support, meaning the fully-trained service team will be on-hand to look after you and your vehicle even after purchase.

With the Currie Motors Commitment, you can rest assured that you are protected from any problems post-purchase. All cars come with an MOT, up to date service book and history, mileage and service checks, as well as affordable and flexible service plans and finance options. Nice people to do business with, Currie Motors even offer customers the benefit of a free MOT for life offer if they continue to service their car with the company.

Currie Motors know that buying a new car is an important decision, which is why they offer advice and support every step of the way.
