Buying a Car During 2021 Lockdown Restrictions
Unfortunately, car showrooms are once again closed under 2021 lockdown restrictions, meaning that you’ll be unable to visit and browse cars in person.
Despite the intermittent opening and closures of car showrooms over the last year resulting in many buyers opting for online sales, the majority of us still prefer to have the experience of visiting a showroom, test-driving a car, and taking the time to choose which car is best.
Official guidelines say that you should not leave home except where necessary for basic necessities. This also mentions that if you do need to travel, you should only stay local and avoid travelling outside of your local area. With that being said, you are still able to buy a car online and have it delivered, providing that hygiene and social distancing guidelines are followed.
If you’re wondering whether you need to wait for car showrooms to reopen in order to buy a new car, you’ll be pleased to know, at Parkland Motors, we have made it possible to buy your next car under current restrictions.
Need to buy a car during lockdown? Here's our guide to everything you need to know.
Reserving a Car Online
Fortunately, we stock all of our available cars on our website, so you can still buy a used car online through Parkland Motors and check out our entire range of used cars, without even needing to leave your house.
And, with over 250 used cars in our stock at any one time, we guarantee we’ll have a suitable motor for you. We also regularly update our website so that you can be sure that all cars online are available (providing that another customer hasn’t enquired on the very same day).
We operate online so that you can buy your next used car, without the need to leave your home. This means that if you do find a car that you’re interested in, you can reserve it online in just a few clicks and it’ll be all yours.
Of course, we always allow our customers to test drive any car in our fleet that they like the look of. As this isn’t possible at the moment for all customers, we have put procedures in place to enable customers to get enough information about a car before making an informed decision.
Our video viewing service has been extremely successful and popular with our existing customers. The service allows you to view any vehicle in our fleet, from the comfort of your own home.
If you are looking to purchase a used car through car finance, we do allow you to carry out car financing quotes for any model through our website. This also means you will be able to take out finance online and won’t need to visit us.
We offer a selection of payment plans for you to find the right car loan, and with our in-house fast track system, we are able to arrange finance promptly and efficiently to ensure that you are getting the best value for money.
Looking to buy a car on finance with no deposit? Best of all, you’ll be able to get the car of your dreams with a £0 deposit.
Our online car finance service allows you to see the total price, credit amount, interest rates, monthly payments and your finance term. We do recommend viewing our ultimate guide to car finance to find out which car financing option is most suitable for you.
When buying a car, we understand that the most important factor is that the car is reliable and doesn't have any immediate defects. Although, unfortunately, current restrictions prevent people coming to view their next potential vehicle. This is why we carry out a rigorous 85-point inspection of all cars prior to collection or delivery so that you can be sure you’re choosing a reliable used car from a reputable dealership.
And, to give you complete peace of mind, all of our used cars come with a minimum of 8 months MOT and up-to-date oil service to keep you and your car on the road with no problems.
Looking for a used car warranty? We work with the UK’s leading car warranty company, The Motoring Organisation. So, if you would like to future proof your vehicle from any unexpected issues or potential garage expenses there is an option to take out extended warranty cover, with prices starting as little as £99 for 6 months peace of mind.
Contactless Delivery or Collection
While not many other car dealerships offer this service, we do offer contactless delivery or collection.
This means that regardless of where you are, whether you’re in Birmingham, Derby, Leicester, Nottingham or even further afield in Scotland, Cornwall or anywhere in the UK, you’ll be able to buy your next car without the need to leave your front doorstep with our nationwide car delivery service with quick turnaround times normally around 48 hours you will be behind the wheel of your new vehicle before you know it...
Want to collect straight away? Fortunately, current restrictions do allow you to click and collect. Our vehicle click and collect service means you can pick up your new car on the very same day you reserve it online.
All vehicle handovers are conducted at a safe distance with every car completely sanitised before delivery or collection. We also have a 14-day money-back guarantee if you change your mind.
Buy Your Next Car
Looking to buy your next used car? Current restrictions may prevent you from doing a lot of things, however, we’ve made it possible for restrictions to not get in the way of finding your dream car.
All of our cars are pre-checked, serviced and valeted, so when you come to collect or have the car delivered, it’ll be like having a brand new car!
We are more than happy to talk you through your first car requirements and help you find the best car to suit you. Contact us today for more information on our cars and services.
