People Buy Quality Used Cars rather than New at Imperial Cars

With brand new cars being subject to an immediate drop in value as soon as you leave the showroom, many people are getting savvy and now look to invest in a top quality used car. Imperial Car Supermarkets have seen a significant rise in customers switching from buying new to buying a top quality used car from us, and who can blame them? You can save money, yet still have a car with fantastic top of the range features. Used cars have already absorbed their depreciation costs, leaving you to scoop up a bargain!

Here are 10 great reasons to buy a used car from Imperial Car Supermarkets:

  1. Every vehicle is RAC inspected

2. All our used cars have a 3 month extendable RAC Warranty

3. All car’s previous service and finance history has been fully checked:

4. We make sure every vehicle is repaired and prepared to meet strict mechanical and cosmetic standards.

5. We highlight any remaining cosmetic imperfections on on our website - no surprises!

“Almost as perfect as a brand new car”


Buying a used car from Imperial Car Supermarkets is a smart choice - recently we received customer feedback from Mrs Irvine who normally buys a new car, and went on to buy a used MINI Hatchback from Imperial Car Supermarkets in Southampton:

Mrs Irvine gave the following testimonial:

“ Imperial Cars Southampton were great because it is clear what you are buying. No hidden extras. As I usually buy new cars I wanted a similar level of service. I got it, which was brilliant. If you want peace of mind you can purchase extra things like a warranty to cover repairs. I now have two years with no worries about repair bills. I also purchased the protection for paint and interior of the car. I know it is worth the money from my experience having it on other cars. Everything was explained clearly and the presentation of cars is excellent, almost as perfect as a brand new car. The experience was different from what I expected. Everyone I spoke to provided a high level of customer service. I love my car and am glad I bought a good quality second hand car from a trusted dealer, rather than a cheap new one. ”

Imperial Car Supermarkets have showrooms in Southampton, Northampton, Portsmouth, Chertsey, Swanick and Fleet. All of the cars we have for sale appear on our website with their supporting documents - RAC report, history, V5 and HPI checks. If you find a car you love with us, we can make sure it is available to view at a showroom of your choice. Why not get searching for your next car with us now?
