How to Buy a Car Online

It's easy as 1, 2, 3... (4) 🤓 


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: Arrange delivery 📦

Choose Which Dealer Suits You


You can decide when and where you want to pick up your used car. Most of our cars can be moved to a location that suits you. 

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.

London-based customers can benefit from our Car Store at Morrisons locations, which act as click and collect points for used cars. 

Step 4: Drive away happy 😃

Drive Away Happy


This is the only bit that can't really be done online! However, we'll come to you

Once steps 1-4 are completed, head down to your chosen store. After completing a few bits of paperwork (online in most cases), you'll be ready to drive away. 

Car Store cars come with a 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.
