BBC One Show encourages HPI checks for used car buyersBack

Did you watch The One Show last night on BBC1? If you did, you’ll have noticed that there was a feature on buying cars with outstanding finance, a very real and common risk to car buyers.

If you make the mistake of purchasing a car which contains existing finance that hasn’t yet been paid off, as the new owner, you’ll be expected to pay the debt off, or you may even lose your car.

This is a risk which affects many used car buyers, with statistics revealing that 1 in 4 cars checked by vehicle data expert, HPI, have outstanding finance registered against them.

The One Show urged buyers to always invest in a vehicle safety check such as a HPI check, before purchasing a used car, something which Trusted Dealers is pleased to be able to offer all of its potential buyers on the spot.

In fact, all of the used cars which we advertise on our website have already benefited from a HPI or Experian check to guarantee that our customers receive added peace of mind when they drive off the forecourt. The checks will not just confirm that a car does not have outstanding finance, but will also inform buyers that cars are neither lost nor stolen or have not been previously written off.

In fact, we don’t just offer HPI checks to customers, but also a unique service known as our 10 Points of Difference which is specifically designed to make a difference to the way that our customers feel about their buying experience with us. The 10 Points of Difference is a thorough service which includes theft and write off checks, finance confidence that they are getting a good deal on a quality used car.

Watch the 10-Points of Difference video located on the home page of the Trusted Dealers website to gain further information about how you can benefit from buying a used car through our team of dedicated sales professionals.

Kristian Welch Consumer Director for HPI said: “The threat of buying a car on outstanding finance is very real. But motorists don’t need to panic as long as they take the necessary precautions. The HPI Check report ensures buyers have all the information available to make an informed decision, and is backed by the HPI Guarantee for complete peace of mind.”
