How to buy a car with carwow

April 10, 2017 by

carwow is the new way to buy a car. It’s faster, cheaper and easier than trudging through dealerships and haggling for the best price. carwow lets you pick the exact car you want and gives dealerships the opportunity to send you offers based on your requirements.

You get an upfront, no-haggle price and the reassurance of independent customer reviews so you know you’ll always get the best service from the dealer. Here’s how it works!

1. Pick the car you want to buy

With hundreds of different models to choose from, picking the car you want can be a pain. However, carwow’s team of motoring experts is here to help. The first place to start is our car chooser, which lets you pick a car based on how many seats you need, how efficient it should be, whether you want something sporty – or one of dozens of variables..

We also aggregate the ratings from the UK’s top motoring publications into our car reviews to bring you the most informed overview of a car’s strengths and weaknesses.

If you’re still not sure, check out our extensive recommendations of the best cars from a variety of popular sectors such as seven-seater SUVs, family cars, sports cars and even superminis.

2. Choose your ideal engine, colour and specification

Once you’ve chosen the car you’d like, pop it into our car configurator. The first stage allows you to select the engine type, the gearbox and the number of doors depending on the choices for that model. Next, you will be presented with the engine and trim options for your specification along with their recommended retail price.

Once you’ve narrowed down the engine and trim, you can choose the colour and any extra options you’d like fitted to the car. Finally, enter your postcode, sit back,and relax while carwow’s huge network of dealers prepare their offers.

3. Receive offers from dealerships

Once you’ve sent off your ideal car, approved dealerships will be able to send you offers. You’ll be shown discounts from a range of dealerships including the nearest, the cheapest and the ones rated highest by carwow buyers.

Many offers consist of two prices one for outright purchase and one for buyers taking out finance agreements. The discount you receive is exactly the same for both but some dealerships may offer a deposit contribution to buyers taking out finance, lowering the overall price.

4. Happy motoring

Once you’ve selected which offer you want, simply contact the dealership and arrange the purchase as you would normally. You’ll be given an idea of how long the car will take to arrive and you can look forward to many miles of happy motoring! You can also arrange to part-exchange your old car with the dealer if you’d like.

There are no hidden catches and you can even get your car serviced at your local dealership as you would normally regardless of where you bought it from.
