We like to meet our customers & offer the opportunity to visit with us to view your chosen MINI.
Once you have made your selection, perhaps had a drive in it too, & decided that its the perfect MINI just for you, then to secure it we ask for a minimum of £500.00 deposit. Once your deposit is paid, the MINI its taken off the market & considered a sold car & is not available for anyone else to view.
Like Mrs MINI we too are a little old fashioned & do not take debit or credit cards – primarily due to the charges imposed by the banks.
In addition we don’t take this form of payment, is that its very easy for our younger customers to get swept along with the excitement & emotion of buying a MINI, and we want to make 100% sure that our younger customers appreciate the reality of the purchase they are making, and that it is within their budgets. It is often the first time our younger customers have purchased a car, so we aim to make sure it is a rational & considered decision that is being made, and not one that they later regret.
Generally deposits are paid either in cash or bank to bank & we are set up for “ping it” via mobile too. You will always receive a text from us confirming receipt of your deposit. Once paid, deposits are non refundable. This is because we will be taking the MINI off the market and potentially turning away other potentially interested parties. By this stage in the process, we will have finalised all aspects of our sales agreement, which will be sent to you by e-mail as a pdf invoice.
Our invoice Outlines all the details of your MINI. Your MINI’s Registration number, chassis number, MOT, miles, price agreed & details of any extras & upgrades will all be detailed on the invoice for you along with our Bank Account Information.
We propose that you pay the balance bank to bank and we suggest that it clears 48 hours prior to your planned collection date to ensure we both have time to sort out any hitches should they occur. We ask you to tell us when you make the final payment, so we can check arrival of your funds & we can confirm receipt to you preventing any uncertainty.
On the appointed day your MINI will be ready & waiting for you.
At that time, we will have your V5, your warranty booklet & your invoice ready for you to sign. We copy the V5 & send it off to the DVLA, there will be two copies of your invoice, one for you & one for us, and we will have your warranty booklet ready for you to sign too.
Just prior to handing over your keys we take one last chance to get you settled into your new MINI. We then recap on how everything works, ensuring you are happy with the controls before you set off.
You are then the proud owner of your MINI, and we wave you off wishing you many happy miles of motoring together.
