What are the procedures now we are open?

Appointments

We are open for viewings on a 1-to-1 appointment basis to give the customer the time they deserve. This doesn't stop people from walking around outside looking at cars, but this is to restrict the number of people inside the showroom at any single time. All cars are locked to stop people jumping in and out of vehicles, to minimise the risks. So to view a car or go for a test drive, you will need to book an appointment with us.

You will be allocated a time slot at your convenience and we will prepare the car, by cleaning it, sanitising the inside and getting it ready for your exclusive viewing. You will be able to view the car in your own time in a dedicated viewing area of which cleaning and sanitising products will be made available to you.

We do ask for a £99 fully refundable deposit to reserve the vehicle to show commitment in buying the car. If you like the car and wish to buy the car, the £99 deposit will be taken off the price of the car. If for whatever reason after viewing that you have decided that the car isn't for you, you will get the £99 deposit fully refunded back to you.


Test Drive Policy

Anyone can test drive any vehicle subject to if the customer is buying the car. The reason for this, due to Government Guidelines, is we sanitise all vehicles for appointments. We want to ensure the safety of our customers and staff by minimising the number of people that go in and out of our vehicles.


No Haggling Policy

We aim to be the cheapest in the country for the make, model, mileage, year and condition for each and every car we have in stock. Therefore, we do not discount further.
At Junction 17 Cars, we consider ourselves a car retailer. Not a car dealership. A dealership implies that deals and discounts can be done, whereas a retailer sells for the price advertised.


Going Digital

Here at Junction 17 Cars, we are leaders in the industry with having a truly contact free experience. We are currently building our all-in-one system to cater for all customers throughout the car buying process. Our team of experts will help you with your part exchange valuations, car finance quotes and even after care support right from a digital tablet. We clean all touchscreens and tablets throughout the day, before and after each use and of an evening when they go on charge, to keep the safety of our staff and customers.

Can I get a car delivered to me?

Yes! We are committed to helping you safely buy your next car by offering a contact-free car-buying experience. This includes the electronic signing of all paperwork so you don’t have to go into our dealership. We will also delivery to your door, cleaning your car ahead of the handover and posting keys through the letterbox, all to give you complete peace of mind.

After the vehicle is prepped, deep cleaned and completely sanitised, we can also deliver your car to your door in our fully insured trailer for added security.

I’ve bought a car on finance – what happens if I don’t get paid?

There are a few options available to you if you’re struggling to make your finance repayments. If you’ve already repaid more than half the original finance amount (and you’ve decided you’d rather not keep the vehicle) you can choose to return it to the finance company. This is called a ‘voluntary surrender’ and means you won’t have to make any further payments. It’s part of your statutory rights and won’t affect your credit status.

If you haven’t repaid half the finance amount yet, you may still be able to cut the cost of your monthly payments by refinancing your car. This will allow you to pay back a little less each month in return for extending your finance agreement by a number of months. This option is often possible if your car is currently worth more than the amount you’ve left to repay. Unusually low interest rates (in part thanks to the recently reduced Bank of England Base Rate) may also help you save a little money each month, too.

The Finance and Leasing Association advises customers to “contact their lender as soon as possible if they anticipate problems – they’re there to help. The type of assistance will likely vary depending on the customer’s circumstances, but starting the conversation is key”.

If you are looking for a new car... we have an option for you to defer the finance payments up to 6 months! So that means you won't have to pay a penny in this time! Contact us for details.

Find Your Perfect Car



How do I sell my old car?

With many people having to stay at home during this time, you will find it hard to sell your car privately. If you’re planning to replace it straight away, when you start the online order of your new car, just enter your current vehicles details to get an instant valuation. We will then take your vehicle away when we drop off your new car in part exchange.

You can also sell your car through our Brokerage service. This is the safest option at the moment as it means you won't have to deal with members of the public. We can potentially return you more than what you could get from a private sale. And as private sellers are not selling any cars at the moment its the best way to get as much money for your car as possible.

The final option is to sell your car directly to us. The car’s condition and paperwork will be inspected then you’re paid straight away and the car is taken off your hands. Tap on the link below to get your instant valuation.
