The Benefits of Buying from an RAC Approved Dealer

Buying a used car from a private owner can be a nerve-wracking experience, understandably so with as many as 45% of motorists believing they were deceived in one form or another by the individual who sold it to them. Even with this high level of dissatisfaction, approximately 2.7 million cars are bought and sold privately in the UK each year, with motorists still running the risk on lower prices, rather than going with the security offered by a trade sale. The RAC Approved Dealer Network has been developed to give motorists confidence and peace of mind so they can avoid these pitfalls and take the risk out of buying a used car.

Even though there are a number of respectable used car dealers all across the UK, knowing which ones to trust can be challenging. Of the one million+ unique visitors who use the RAC website every month, approximately one in four are considering buying a used car. With that in mind we have set out to help our customers by recommending RAC Approved Dealers that offer high levels of customer service and offer quality used cars to their customers.

There are a number of benefits for customers choosing to buy from an Approved Dealer. An RAC survey of more than 2,300 motorists revealed that 67% of drivers think they were sold a faulty car and that 21% believe they paid too much for their car. All this despite nearly 50% of all motorists spending upwards of ten hours researching their purchases. RAC Approved Dealers will help motorists avoid such pitfalls, and are chosen based on their quality, integrity and desire to deliver customer service that goes above and beyond.

As well as approving Mark Berwick Motors Ltd who have these excellent qualities, we have gone that one step further by developing RAC BuySure. This RAC programme provides used car customers with a nationwide approved used car scheme that sets very high standards.

With this guarantee, Mark Berwick Motors Ltd commits to;
