1. NO 'SMOKE & MIRRORS' - WE KEEP IT HONEST & SIMPLE

Often the prospect of buying a car can be an experience filled with apprehension and confusion with some dealers putting high-pressure sales targets before the wants and needs of the customer. The 'Sell at all costs' mentality is certainly not what you as a potential client would want - nor should you ever come to expect it!

 

Keys

 

 

 

 

At PRECIOUS METAL we simply listen to our client's requirements. From monthly budget, desired deposit (if any), vehicle type including specification and even their most favoured colours! From that feedback we offer no-nonsense, straightforward advice to enable you the customer to make an informed choice whilst being in possession of ALL the facts. We also tailor your finance package according to your individual circumstances before which, we provide a full explanation of the different types of finance agreements, and the pros and cons of each. YOU are in control.

 

 

 

2. FANTASTIC FINANCE RATES - WHY PAY MORE?

The finance rate you are offered by a dealer directly affects the monthly price and overall cost of your vehicle. Put simply, the higher the rate, the more expensive the car. Used car finance rates offered by some dealers can be above and beyond 15% APR.


At PRECIOUS METAL we're proud to offer our customers finance rates at LESS THAN HALF that amount starting from just 6.9% APR (subject to lender acceptance). So, your dream car could actually be a money-saving reality! We also run exceptional promotional rates in partnership with our lenders to ensure you get the very best deal possible!

3. WARRANTY - AN ULTIMATE PEACE OF MIND

A warranty is a policy that protects the consumer against defects that cause a vehicle to malfunction. When a car was new it will have been protected by a warranty supplied by the manufacturer. Typically this will cover a car for 3 years or 60,000 miles after the date of registration. The extended warranties offered by some dealers can be poor and wouldn't actually cover you as well as you may wish to think should the unthinkable happen. These are low-cost policies with questionable benefits - some really aren't even worth the paper they're written on.

At PRECIOUS METAL we only use the UK's LEADING WARRANTY COMPANY WARRANTYWISE. This ensures that all vehicles requiring extended warranty are comprehensively covered to the highest possible standard and you can focus on enjoying your car with the ultimate peace of mind that this affords.

4. VEHICLE HISTORY CHECKS - BUY WITH CONFIDENCE

The fear of most car buyers would be that their lovely new pride & joy actually turned out to have a chequered past - from insurance write off to being previously stolen. Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous individuals that sell these cars on to

unsuspecting members of the public at what appears to be an attractive price. 

 

At PRECIOUS METAL ALL vehicles are checked via HPI - the national automotive register that holds all the key information to ensure that the cars we sell to our clients DO NOT have any hidden secrets. Additionally, we check the service records & mileage history on all cars to help maintain our very high standard of vehicles.
