BRISTOL Street Motors demonstrated the value of its innovative Buy Online service, after delivering a car to a customer in rural Wales.
The new service, launched last year, was utilised by Tony Webb of Monmouth in rural Wales, who wanted to trade in his Fiat Panda for a Dacia Logan.
After doing some research on the background of Bristol Street Motors and the Buy Online service, and finding a car perfect for his family and his dog, Webb opted to arrange a finance deal, along with a delivery time and date, with Mick Harper of Bristol Street Motors’ Bradford Renault dealership.
Webb said: ‘The service I received was very professional and the features of the car were thoroughly explained to me on delivery. The road conditions near my home were really muddy, but the car had been cleaned moments before and arrived in a pristine condition.
‘My family and friends thought I was mad buying a car online but I would definitely do it again, it was easy and saved me a lot of time travelling to different dealerships, which are in short supply in my area!’
The Buy Online service is the first of its kind in the UK, and allows customers to make their purchases entirely online. Customers can choose from over 4000 used vehicles, and complete their purchase in as little as five minutes. Once purchased, cars can be delivered to any UK mainland postcode.
Robert Forrester, chief executive officer of Bristol Street Motors’ parent company Vertu Motors, said: ‘Everyone is different when it comes to buying a car and we want to cover every aspect of that process. With the introduction of Bristol Street Motors Buy Online, customers have the option of purchasing a car from the comfort of their own home, without compromising on first class service.’
