What's the smart way to buy a car?

Choosing and buying a car is one of the most important decisions you need to make, not only is it a financial decision, you are also likely to depend on your vehicle every day, so you need to know you’ve made the right choice.

One of the key decisions might be whether to purchase a new car or used car. Imperial Car Supermarkets are your local used car experts. We only sell pre-owned cars and understand the benefits of buying a second hand vehicle. Although, buying from new can be fun, depreciation is extremely rapid, meaning that within hours of purchase your car’s trade in value has fallen sharply.

New cars can also sometimes have problems which need ironing out. These are normally promptly rectified by new owners with the main dealer, with any other issues getting resolved during the 1st year inspection. So by buying second hand you can avoid the teething problems associated with a new vehicle. It’s worth noting that any manufacturers warranty goes with the car when it is sold on, so you can still benefit from any cover left to run when buying a used car. These are just some of the reasons we think buying a used car from Imperial Car Supermarkets is the smart choice.

Did you know that the RAC check and report on each and every one of our cars? We carry out any repairs required before putting them up for sale, and with the average age of used vehicles at Imperial Car Supermarkets being just 3 years old, and only ‘average user mileage’ on the clock, they really do offer fantastic value for money.
