About Us

UK Car Discount are an established new car online car dealership, We have been trading on the internet since 2003 and in this time have sold over £120M worth of new car sales online. We have dedicated delivery, admin, sales, marketing and customer service departments based at our head office, near Manchester Airport.

In 2003 after many years working in the motor trade we set on the journey to design and set up a website that could bring savings to internet customers. After researching the market place it became clear that there was a place in the market for a company that offered the best price 1st time. Customers who wanted a UK dealer supplied vehicle but did not want to ‘play the game' with the salesmen, they wanted to buy without the hassle of negotiating the price with a salesman at a dealer.

The original website design went live in May 2004 and we sold our first car in the June. We have been trading over 11 years now and have always listened to customer feedback to improve the customer journey. Obviously technology moves on as well, so we have invested heavily over the years to produce the current 2015 version of our website. The latest 2015 version is PC, laptop, tablet and mobile phone compatible.

More and more customers are turning to the internet to buy a car and we have tried to simplify the buying process and payment. We understand customer's apprehension when buying a new car over the internet, it's not like buying gifts or groceries. With such a costly purchase there has to be trust both ways so we have a unique final payment scheme. Most companies will ask you to pay for the vehicle in full before you have it delivered but at UK Car Discount you only pay for the vehicle after you have inspected it and are totally happy.

1. You only pay for the vehicle after you have taken delivery, inspected the car and are totally happy.
2. We only deliver Uk dealer supplied vehicles with the full manufacturer's warranty.

New Car Buyer Guide

IF YOU'RE BUYING A NEW CAR ONLINE, HERE ARE SOME TIPS AND ADVICE TO HELP YOU

More and more people are now buying products online and saving money doing so, therefore it was only a matter of time before people are buying new cars online, expecting the same, great savings. But there are more than just cheap new cars available online; many online car dealers will offer a range of car finance options including car insurance bundled in with the price of the vehicle. Additionally, online dealers will generally offer a wider range of makes and models than traditional car dealers who often only promote one car manufacturer.

1
DO YOUR RESEARCH

Before you start, please make sure you have done your new car research. The internet is great for this; check out the manufacturer sites (we have a useful link for a list of new car manufacturers here). You'll be able to see all the colours and options available quite easily and make a few final selections. The obvious advantage of researching online is that you don't have to leave the house if the weather is lousy, the data is available 24/7 and you don't have to run the gauntlet of pushy car sales staff at a dealership.

2
VISIT CAR DEALERSHIPS

Coming from an online dealership, it might seem odd that we're suggesting you visit a new car dealer. We don't expect people to buy a new car online 'unseen', which is why we suggest a visit to a dealership. Get into it, try it out, even give the wheels a kick if you like. Nothing can really beat seeing the car "in the flesh". Take care when in the dealership though, as their sales teams will try hard to sell you a new car right there and then. Just let them know you're researching new cars and prices. Some things that car sales people might say to put you off buying a new car online include:

If you buy a car off the internet we will not be able to do the warranty on your new car This is simply untrue. The warranty is an agreement between you and the car manufacturer. The relevant service centre must honour it irrespective of where you purchased your new car, online or from a dealership. Dealers will try to give the impression that you must buy the car directly for them in order for them to be able to handle any warranty work on the car. Again this is not true. You'll have to wait ages for the car You may have to wait a short time, depending on the car you order. We order your car from the manufacturer and we are subject to manufacturer lead time, rather than having them sitting around a show room. That's just one of reasons we can offer new cars at cheap prices - we don't have that overhead cost to recoup in the sale price (nor the price of sales people salaries). If the manufacturer has the car in stock, we will get hold of it quicker. Internet companies won't deliver the car Some might have tried in the past, but those days are long gone. We've been selling cars over the internet for nearby 10 years, selling around £10M worth of new cars each year - if we didn't deliver cars, we'd have gone out of business a long, long time ago. At the end of the day, we get new cars from the same place all new car dealers do; the manufacturer. It'll be an import It won't. All our cars are UK Dealer supplied. Prior to delivery the dealer carriers out an extensive inspection, valets, taxes and registers the car on your behalf. We only supply UK dealer supplied cars at great prices; the clue is in our name... UK Car Discount.

ADVANTAGES OF BUYING A NEW CAR ONLINE

Of course saving money on the bottom line price of a vehicle should be your primary objective when buying a new car online. However, there are other advantages too.

Many online car dealers will offer a range of finance options. Additionally, online dealers will generally offer a wider range of makes and models than traditional car dealers who often only promote one car manufacturer.

Indeed choice is one of the massive incentives for buying a new car online. Not only can you take your pick from the makes and models you desire, but you can choose between the specifications you want too. For example, if you're looking for a specific model in a particular colour you can simply enter the details into the online car dealer's website and see what's available. Using local garages by contrast, could mean a long wait to get exactly what you want.

Furthermore, we will deliver the vehicle directly to your door and we don't take final payment until you are 100% happy with your new car.

Buying a new car online puts the power in your hands. Instead of wasting time shopping around from dealer to dealer you can simply search for what you want and have the results in front of you within minutes. You are not restricted to searching for a new car at specific times of day, nor do you have to travel to reach your destination. There is also no pressure on to you buy – you won't be hounded by a salesman looking to make commission. You can simply buy what you want, when you want and if you don't see anything you like you can move on to another online dealer until you find your dream car.

Also make sure you print off the small print and read it thoroughly before completing a purchase. This is a major plus with buying a new car online – you have time to check and double check the fine print without being pressured to sign quickly.

DISADVANTAGES OF BUYING ONLINE

There are some disadvantages of buying a new car online, but if we tell you about them, you can work around them. After all, we want you to get the best deal for the car you want, and the odds are, that will be as a result of an online purchase.

For most buyers who dismiss the online automotive market, the number one complaint is that they don't want to buy a new car ‘sight unseen'.

This is less of a problem when buying a new car online, than buying a used car online. As the vehicle is ‘new' there shouldn't be a large variation from the car you are buying online to the same models that are available at local garages. Therefore there is nothing to stop you popping along to a local dealer and taking the car for a test drive if you do not want to rely on the pictures and descriptions that most online dealers supply. Of course that won't allow you to check for any bumps or scratches that might be present on the car you buy – so be sure to carry out a ‘spot check' before you take possession of the vehicle when it is delivered to you.

Another downside is that you will almost certainly have to wait a few days to receive the car you buy online – whereas you can drive away from a local garage as soon as you complete the purchase. However, for most this disadvantage is negated by the fact that you can choose the exact specification you want, ahead of time.

If you decide against buying a new car online, then you should still use online dealers to your advantage. Trawl their websites and see the prices that are available – this will give you a target price to take forward.
