Terms and Conditions,
the unpleasant legal stuff !
Availability of Vehicles :
All our vehicles are offered on a first
come first served basis, vehicles are only withdrawn from sale upon
receipt of a deposit. Making an appointment to view does NOT secure
the car, if someone gets here before
you or wishes to buy directly from the website we cannot refuse to take
their order. We will accept £100 "reservation fee"
over the telephone to
hold the car for 7 days but please note this deposit is not refundable
under any circumstances as
we relinquish the opportunity to sell the car to someone else during the 7
day period. We will of course deduct this £100 when you
purchase the vehicle.
Cherished Numbers :
Many of our vehicles come to
us with cherished numbers still displayed and it can take
before we have confirmation of a replacement number from DVLA. Please
note, this does NOT mean the cherished plate is included in the sale.
Where a cherished number is displayed on any of our vehicles please
always assume that the plate is NOT included with the sale.
you place an order and leave a deposit you are entering into a legally
binding contract. The contract binds us to sell you the vehicle described
at the price stated but it also binds you to buy the vehicle. If you
fail to complete the transaction or cancel the
order for any reason our company has a legal right to retain any deposit
paid. In the interests of fair and reasonable business practice we will not
normally withhold a large deposit, however we do incur costs in
processing your payment ( bank charges, card processing fees ) and in putting the vehicle back on sale
( advertising fees ). For this
reason we will retain the first £250 of any deposit paid
PLUS the cost of
any work we have carried out on the vehicle on your behalf.
If any refund is due payment will be made by cheque to keep card processing
fees to a minimum. Please be
certain you want the car before placing your order
and leaving a deposit !
All our vehicles are driven on a regular basis to keep them operating correctly, the recorded
mileage may therefore differ slightly from the mileage advertised or displayed
in our photographs. If the mileage of any vehicle changes significantly during
our tenure we will endeavour to update our advertisements, however you are
advised to check the current mileage of any vehicle before placing your order.
Exchange : When
we accept a motor vehicle in part exchange it must be delivered to us in
the same condition as when we examined it, with the same accessories
fitted and nothing removed. If anything is removed from the vehicle or if
the vehicle sustains damage before it is delivered to us we reserve the
right to reject the vehicle entirely or to reduce the allowance given by
an amount appropriate to putting the vehicle back as it was at the time of
Payment Methods :
We will accept
deposits up to £250 by cash, bank
or credit cards.
For larger balances we prefer bank transfer or cash payments as Worldpay
card processing charge us 1.7% for card payments. We cannot release any vehicle before payments have cleared with our bankers.
Bank Transfers can take up to 48 hours to clear so please make payment in
plenty of time prior to collection.
Our photographs are not edited
or enhanced in any way, other than being reduced in size for use on the
internet. All our photographs are a true and honest representation of our
vehicles, to the best of our photographic ability. We prefer outdoor
photography but at busy times or when the weather is poor we take photos
Pricing Adjustments :
If any of our vehicles develop a
fault during our tenure we will have the fault rectified, we therefore
reserve the right to adjust our pricing if necessary to cover the cost of
any remedial work undertaken. We also track the Classic Car market very closely and
often find the values of cars can increase during the period we own them, we
therefore reserve the right to adjust our pricing in accordance with market
Test Drives and Insurance : For insurance purposes all test drives must be accompanied
by a staff member and cover a pre-determined route. Our insurers require photographic ID in the
event of any incident so please bring your driving license and photocard
if you think you will require a test drive. If you do not wish to drive
the car yourself we are more than happy to "chauffeur" you over our test
Vehicle Descriptions Disclaimer, please note :
Whilst every effort has been made to check the accuracy of the vehicle
descriptions and specifications given in our advertisements, some errors in compiling the
information may have occurred. You are therefore strongly advised to examine the
vehicles and to check the accuracy of the information supplied before deciding
to purchase a vehicle described above. We cannot be held responsible for any
errors or discrepancies in vehicle descriptions or specifications which come to
light after the time of sale. Your statutory rights as a consumer are not
affected by this statement.
Warranty : We
will not knowingly sell a car with any major defect unless it is clearly
declared in on advertisements. All our vehicles are inspected
and prepared by an independent specialist
and taken to another independent garage for MOT test at the time of sale.
We take every reasonable step to ensure no major defects exist at the time
of sale but please consider the age of the vehicle and accept that on
older vehicles faults may occur at any time. Classic Cars
( cars over ten years old ) by their very
nature require continuous maintenance and repair and will not be as
reliable as a modern vehicle,
these vehicles are sold for ongoing restoration and repair and we cannot
reasonably be expected to guarantee a vehicle of this age will continue to
operate correctly. Modern cars ( cars under ten years
old ) we will happily
guarantee against major mechanical failure for 3 months or 3,000 miles
from the date of sale, subject to the terms and conditions which are set
out in the warranty documentation provided at time of sale.
