I have just bought a 6 month old car from Jefferies Farm - UnbeatableCar from their Crawley Car Supermarket
I had been and browsed there before and had often been tempted because its like an Aladdin's cave, everywhere you turn there's another nice car. We were looking for a particular type of car, so we decided to look at their website UnbeatableCar.com to see if they had any in stock. We found the site very simple to use, but also clear and informative, we managed to narrow down our choice before driving to the site. When we went to look at the car, the salesmen didn't come and 'hound' you (as they seem to do everywhere else), they left you to look around, and when you did want to look at a particular car, they would give you all the details service history ect, and then offered to let us test drive the car, in fact, you can test drive as many cars as you like, we test drove 3 and were able to park them side by side to compare- Excellent!
There wasn't a lot of room for haggling the price, I was told this is because the price of the car is so low any way ( I have since checked against Autotrader, and they were right, Jefferies farm were cheaper by a long shot) I was offered book price for my car, which actually wasn't too bad, they also did tell us that it was ok to try to sell our part ex privately to see if we could get any get more money, as they don't earn any money from our old car they were not bothered if we were able to sell it privately, ( to be honest i didn't want the agro!!)There was finance offered, but again you weren't pushed into taking out this finance, if you politely said no the salesman was fine!!
Picking up the car was a breeze, although we weren't given a spare key, as the previous owner had lost it (and they didn't have spare ones as they aren't FORD dealer, but I went to my nearest ford dealers anyway and got one cut for £45, but I got it at such a bargain price that I couldn't grumble all that much (although I tried)
All in all, buying from UnbeatableCar was fantastic and so easy, ok it wasn't like buying from a main dealer there wasn't a bunch of flowers on the passenger seat and I wasn't spoken to buy a smooth talking salesman in an Armani suit, they are more Tesco's than Marks and Spencer, but all said and done, I would definitely go back to them again to look for my next car. It was easy and no pressure, and very good value for money.
