The Difference Between Car Dealerships

Choosing a new car can be an exciting time, and is an important decision that shouldn't be taken lightly.

Finding the right car dealer, one which can offer security - before, during, and after your car buying journey - carries a lot of weight towards a great experience.

With so many car dealers out there, the choice available to you might feel like too much - but we're here to help anyone in this position understand which is best for them, and why one could be better than the other.

Franchised Motor Dealer


Franchised car dealers offer the most comprehensive car buying experience, as they work as a direct representative of the world's biggest brands.


You'll find many assurances with a franchised dealer, especially when purchasing a brand new car, as all vehicles have been quality controlled by the manufacturer themself, while all staff at the dealer are trained to manufacturer standards. As a result, all staff have comprehensive knowledge regarding the manufacturers they represent.


When it comes to used cars, many of the vehicles will be of the same manufacturer as the one(s) represented at the dealer, so again, they are all kept to manufacturer standards. Plus, any that meet strict criteria may be fully approved by the marque themselves, giving you extra confidence when looking to buy a pre-owned car.


Additionally, franchised dealers have on-site manufacturer-trained technicians available for any aftercare issues, as well as the latest equipment available to them. These technicians can help with manufacturer servicing, MOTs, and car repairs – everything you need all under one roof.


As a franchised dealership group ourselves, we are able to offer all the advantages of such an establishment, with an extensive range of manufacturers and models to suit your every need. Meanwhile, ensuring we can accommodate for any post-purchase needs to a high standard.
