Award-winning car warranty cover to protect you from expensive repair bills.
*We prepare all of our retail cars to the highest possible standards, dealing with any issue that we can find prior to putting our cars up for sale. Unlike a lot of small car dealers this work is put in to the hands of professionals.
If a car needs an MOT then we will provide it with one, and if it needs a scheduled service then that is taken care of too. Our retail cars receive a 58 point used car inspection, refereed to as a PDI. All of our cars are HPi checked against the Police, Finance and Insurance registers using mycarcheck.com.
We are confident our cars won't give you any issues, but for your peace of mind we provide all our retail cars with a minumum 3 months (cars over £1,000) or 6 months warranty (cars over £2,000) free of charge (no silly admin fee's, or overcharging for assurance with Shields!)
As a dealership committed to excellence, we want you to be delighted with every aspect of your new car and this includes ensuring that motoring costs are kept to an absolute minimum - after all, you shouldn't have to worry about sudden mechanical or electrical failures! Whilst we have done our utmost to ensure that your vehicle is mechanically sound and any known faults have been rectified, unexpected failures can occur at any time which is why we are proud to offer a range of leading car warranty products from the WMS Group.
These multi award-winning warranties will not only include the costs of parts and labour for the necessary repairs or replacements, but also allow you to make an unlimited number of claims at your specified claim limit up to the value of the vehicle. Encompassing many key benefits and options, we pride ourselves on being able to find the warranty cover that's just right for you. Your warranty will also give you access to a vast network of WMS Group authorised repairers to get you back on the road as quickly as possible - wherever you are in the UK. Find out more here.
*Above terms do not apply to cars below £1,000 or PX to clear and vehicles 'sold as seen' are excluded from warranty cover and are sold as seen. Cars that are sold on these terms are sold on a trade basis and all invoicing will reflect as such.
We are proud to be a WMS Group Authorised Dealer
As part of our customer care programme, we are pleased to be able to offer our customers peace of mind against expensive car repair bills with a warranty from the WMS Group. A family car will typically contain between 5,000 and 7,000 parts, which is a lot that can go wrong and with motoring expense on the rise, some repairs can run into thousands of pounds, for example:
The average car engine claim paid by WMS Group is £2,169
The average car automatic gearbox claim paid by WMS Group is £1,723
We offer a comprehensive three month warranty with each vehicle (excluding PX and to clear vehicles).
