Imperial Car Supermarkets Top Quality Car Preparation

Imperial Car Supermarkets are driven by our customers to offer the very best used cars for sale across our UK showrooms. Every vehicle we have for sale is checked, tested and prepared ready for you to buy.  Even before we purchase a vehicle we check out its service history and with HPI, the industry’s leading vehicle check specialist. Used cars stocked by Imperial Car Supermarkets undergo independent checks and reporting by the RAC in our Preparation Centre (or by our own engineers if it is an “Outlet Car”).

We prepare our cars to the highest of standards at our dedicated preparation centre in Eastleigh, Southampton. This 2 acre site includes a paint and body shop, wheel refurbishment centre, mechanical rectification, RAC inspection ramps, parts distribution, valeting department and imaging booths. Once ready for sale they are distributed to our showrooms across the UK in Southampton, Northampton, Chertsey, Swanwick, Fleet & Portsmouth.

View the 1 minute taster show reel below to get a real feel for the high level of preparation that goes into each and every one of our cars.



Here are the steps Imperial Car Supermarkets go through to get your car ready to view, test drive and buy:

  1. Vehicle History, Documents & Credit Checks

  2. Thorough Independent RAC Inspection & Road Test (or by our own engineers if it is an “Outlet Car”)

  3. Reconditioning & Repair based upon the RAC report

  4. MOT, Servicing, Wheels & Tyres

  5. Professional Valet & Showroom Inspection

  6. Showroom-Ready Checks

When our vehicles are delivered to one of our showrooms, they are again checked and inspected for documents, functionality and appearance. Our aim is to make sure our customers can be 100% assured when it comes to vehicle quality and safety. Why not take a look at our Vehicle Preparation page, where you will find lots more information?
