How to Buy a Car Online

It's easy as 1, 2, 3... 


You can now buy a used car online. It's really easy too, and the process includes part-exchanging your current car, so you can get that sorted at the same time. 

Buying a car can sometimes be a hassle. Doing all the research, visiting different dealers, trying to work out what your current car is worth, going to fetch it, all the paper work. It can take over a short period of your life - but it doesn't have to.

Follow our simple guide on how to buy a used car online. 

Step 1: Find a car you love 

Find a Car You Love


The first step is the most important to get right - finding the one. Think about what you need and what you want, and make a priority list. Got kids? You'll likely need a spacious car with a big boot. Want a bit of fun? Consider a convertible.

Though we can't really do this for you (unless you speak to us!) - we do make it easy. Our super-simple used car search contains everything from Fords and Fiats to Volkswagens and Volvos, so it's over to you!

If you're working to a monthly budget, you can search by monthly payment too.

Step 2: Decide how you want to pay 

Decide How You Want to Pay


Once you've found your dream car, it's time to pay for it - online, of course. On our site, you can add your chosen car to your (car sized) basket and then select one of two options - pay monthly or pay in full. 

If you wish to pay monthly, you'll be taken through an online finance application that allows you to choose your deposit, term and annual mileage so you can see exactly how much you'll be paying. 

Paying in full? That's cool too - simply proceed to the payment screen after filling in a few details. 

Step 3:  Delivery or Collection 

Drive Away Happy


You can decide when you want to pick up your used car. We also offer Home Delivery so you don't have to lift a finger. Simply select this option at the checkout and we'll arrange a time and date to drop it off at your doorstop!

If you do opt with our Click & Collect service - Car Stores are open seven days a week, including weekday evenings until 7pm, so it's easy to find a convenient time for your handover.

After completing a few bits of paperwork (online in most cases), you'll be ready to drive away. 

Car Store cars come with a 7 day money-back guarantee, 14 day price promise and a free 3 month warranty so you know you're getting a great value car that you can rely on.
