Main image for post: The cartime commitment to quality used cars

At cartime we're committed to offering quality used cars at great prices, and that means before anything makes it on to our forecourt, it has to go through our rigorous mechanical checks and valet cleaning.

Everything from used Fiat 500s and second-hand Vauxhall Corsas right up to our top-of-the-range pre-owned 67-plate Rolls-Royce Wraith gets carefully transported back to cartime and then subjected to the same tests and checks to make sure it's up to standard.

That means when you view the quality used cars on our forecourt, you know that every one of them has been through:

  • A 62-point mechanical check.
  • A service, bodywork spruce-up and MOT.
  • A full interior valet with upholstery replaced if necessary.
  • Full online description with 360-degree photographs.
  • 30-day 'peace of mind' customer feedback promise.

This means when you buy a used car from cartime, you know that it should pass muster, because anything that doesn't hit our high standards is sold off at auction instead.

Get cartime quality for your own car

If you want to benefit from cartime quality without getting rid of your current car, consider our on-site Car Service Centre's gold, platinum and diamond services to make sure everything is up to scratch and running smoothly.

You don't have to be a previous cartime customer to have your car serviced by our experts, so if you've bought a cheap used car from somewhere else and think it could be a better runner with a bit of attention, our service packages start from just £99 plus VAT.

Our gold service includes:

  • Battery health check.
  • Diagnostics check.
  • Lubricant level check and top-up.
  • Mechanical check.
  • Oil and filter service.
  • Tyre tread depth report.
  • Service reminder reset.
  • Vehicle health check, wash and valet.

Upgrade to our platinum service and we'll change all of your filters too, while the diamond service includes all of the above and a timing belt replacement.

Get a cartime quality used car on finance

Alternatively, buy a used car on finance to benefit from our quality commitment and manageable monthly repayments that spread the cost of buying the car of your dreams.

Many of our customers choose to buy a used car on finance in order to get that bit of extra quality that their budget might not stretch to as an outright cash purchase.

With a choice of hire purchase and personal contract purchase plans, there's plenty of choice to make sure you buy your next car the way you want.

Buying a used car on finance doesn't reduce your options - in fact it opens them up to even more of our range of great quality used cars, including makes and models you might not normally be able to afford.

And because everything has passed our rigorous quality testing, you know that whether you opt for a used BMW on finance, a hire purchase agreement on an Audi, or anything else in our stock, you're still getting the very best that cartime has to offer.
