Car Sourcing

We will scour the trade for the very best possible car that matches your requirements. Car searches can take anything from a couple of days to a couple of months depending on how rare or exotic the car.

Once we have found the perfect vehicle and after some initial checks, we will send you an email with every detail of the vehicle you’ll need in order to make an informed decision. Check out the pictures and feel comfortable with your choice, we will then complete the rest of our pre-inspection checks, and once we are happy, we will e-mail a full order across, you will reply with your acceptance and we take a security deposit to secure the car.

We then send out trained inspectors to make a full physical inspection of the car, at this point I’m afraid we will walk away from around 20% of the vehicles as they do not meet our exacting standards. If the vehicle meets our requirements, we pay for it and bring it back to our HQ in Sussex.

The vehicle then goes through A1’s trade leading preparation process and once we are happy to let it go, you’ll receive your lovely new vehicle. On arrival, simply inspect the vehicle and once you are happy, pay the balance or complete the finance agreement.
