Every savvy surfer knows the Internet has turned shopping on its head.
No longer do you have to trek across town and countryside to find the best deals on clothes, music, electronics or holidays. The cheapest prices and – often – the best service, are just a click away.
Look around you – almost every item in your house can be researched and purchased more conveniently online.
So why can’t cars?
Everyone has one, most people need them yet we’re still stuck in a cycle of unpleasant purchasing, awkward haggling and decision making that can often feel out of your hands once you step inside a dealership.
carwow.co.uk, a new website set up by a collection of bright car fans right here in the UK, aims to make the experience of car buying not only a more cost-effective one, but a happier one too.
Car buying made easy
It works like this. carwow features impartial reviews of every new car on sale in the UK, taken from the UK’s leading motoring critics. Peruse the reviews, then once you’ve decided what car you want, you ‘build’ it using the simple on-site configurator. Pop in your postcode and email address and you’ll start receiving offers from dealers around the country. The dealers can’t hassle you and theres no spam, so you can take your time to decide whether you want to buy a car for the cheapest price, from the closest dealer or the highest-rated for customer service.
Only dealers that have shown impeccable customer service are allowed to sell cars through carwow, so you can rest assured you’ll be looked after. You can even read reviews of each dealer you receive offers from to check out what their previous customers have to say about them. It’s transparent and open, and you’re under no pressure whatsoever to buy a car.
You needn’t worry about buying from a dealer on the other side of the country either – many dealers offer free delivery, and you can take any car to any dealer of that manufacturer to get it serviced too. So your Merseyside Mercedes can be looked after just as well by a dealership on the south coast, and any warranty work can be carried out at any UK dealership for your make of car.
There’s no risk, because your car will only come from an approved UK dealer – not a giant warehouse with no aftersales support.
So far, carwow has helped thousands of users save a total of £13 million on their new cars – and untold hours of awkward haggling.
Give it a go – visit carwow.co.uk to start your research.
