Some Items To Check Before Collecting Your Car
• Make sure that you have insured your vehicle in time for your collection date. If your vehicle purchase is through a finance company, you are legally required to have full and comprehensive insurance and you must hold a full UK licence.
• We usually sell our cars with an existing MOT or we renew it depending on the value of the car. Where it is not offered with an MOT we can provide a delivery service at a competitive rate, but we cannot release a vehicle to be driven away without a valid MOT.
• You are responsible for vehicle road tax but we can help facilitate this for you
• Please allow time for us to help you familiarise yourself with the vehicle controls to ensure you can safely depart with your new purchase.
• Please make sure that your mirrors and seating position are correct so that you feel comfortable and safe within your new surroundings.
• If you are part exchanging a vehicle, it is your responsibility to send off the V5C yellow section; this declares your vehicle in to the licencing authority. You will also need to make sure you bring us the following documents:
1. 1.V5C-signed and dated by you the seller
2. The vehicles current MOT, notify us if it doesn’t have one
3. Any service history, invoices and service book.
4. All keys for your vehicle.
5. Parcel shelf or head rests if they have been removed.
• All vehicles purchased are subject to a £295.00 administration charge which is included within the purchase price.
• Your statutory rights are set out in the Consumer Act 2015. Information about you rights can be found on a number of websites including Which, the AA, and the RAC.
• For vehicles less than £1500.00 there is no guarantee available. it is your responsibility to have the vehicle removed from site via a trailer or transporter as not to put yourself or others at risk. We can offer a recovery service at cost to you. These vehicles are sold for parts only and thus will be sold as ‘Spares or Repairs’.
Whitestone Vehicle Sales ltd has to the best of their ability tried to make sure that your vehicle has been described with the relevant features and to the condition that reflects its price within the market. The data displayed in the advert for the vehicle details the usual specification of the most recent model of this vehicle. It may not be the exact data for the actual vehicle being offered for sale and data for older models may vary slightly. We recommend that you always check the details with a company representative prior to purchase. In the unlikely event that an item within the advert is either not featured or not working, it must be brought to our attention prior to the completion of the purchase. We therefore ask that you, as the customer, check the vehicle’s specification and ancillaries are congruent with that of the advert and that of the items you require to be working before you enter in to a contract of sale. If there are any defective ancillaries or missing items that do not fall under the standard warranty, these will not be replaced repaired once the vehicle has left the site; nor will compensation be entertained.
Whitestone Vehicle Sales provides 3 months or 3 thousand mile (whichever comes first) guarantee as standard for any vehicles with a value above £1500.00 that is not sold for parts or spares or repairs. This service does not affect your statutory rights.
Your warranty does not cover the following items:
Clutch, break discs or pads, all ‘perishables’ such as bushes and suspension components, filter blockages, any electrical items not linked to the running of the engine including CD players, electric windows, air conditioning systems, Minor oil leaks on used vehicles, exhausts, replacement keys, immobiliser issues.
Any intermittent faults or serviceable items required by the manufacturer’s guidelines inclusive of diesel particulate filters, timing belts etc. Please ask for a full list should you require it.
It does not cover business use inclusive of vehicles being used in sole trading or as a partner of business.
Identified general abuse or neglect and/or use for rallying or track days will void your warranty.
If your vehicle is suggesting a fault through its computer system or through it’s driving quality, it may not always be that the fault is serious enough to require repair as used vehicles can be expected to have minor issues. We will always request that the vehicle is brought directly to us or a garage we are currently in contract with for repair. Any initial inspection is covered by ourselves, however, if there is a fault that is deemed ordinary wear and tear or is derived from required mandatory maintenance, there may be a levy charged.
Whitestone Vehicle Sales Ltd will conduct any required repair work covered by our warranty. We will also consider covering the costs of repairs by a third party where this is deemed necessary. However you must have had our authorization before any such work is undertaken. Whitestone Vehicle Sales Ltd will not accept any liability for third party costs that have not been agreed to.
Any mechanical issue, large or small needs to be reported to Whitestone Vehicle Sales ltd immediately and the use of the vehicle must cease until an inspection has been made. This is particularly important if the faults make the engine unusually noisy or the vehicle is over-heating. Continuing to use your vehicle when a warning signal or fault has become apparent may have serious affects on your warranty. The neglectful nature of these actions could cause consequential damage which Whitestone Vehicle Sales would not be held responsible for.
You are responsible for the general maintenance of your vehicle including checking the oil and water levels regularly, any faults linked to this may have serious effects on your guarantee.
Your warranty does cover, mechanical break-downs and engine part failures that lead the vehicle to under-perform to a point that is not reasonably expected. If you feel the warranty offered is not to your preferences or needs we have optional contracts with external warranty companies that allow more comprehensive cover for longer terms and for additional items not listed with in our terms and conditions. We offer very competitive rates and can supply the relevant terms and conditions to help you make an informed decision. We highly recommend that a further warranty is taken as to help you with issues that fall outside of your general guarantee or if you reside a distance away and it makes it more convenient to patronize a more local repair specialist.
Where the vehicle has been returned to us for a repair under warranty and we cannot return the vehicle the same day, in some circumstances we may be able to offer a courtesy vehicle to our customers to relieve any inconvenience. This vehicle would need to be collected from our site and will come taxed. Car insurance would be the responsibility of the customer and proof that valid insurance would need to be provided. Fully comprehensive or third party insurance would be required. If third party insurance is employed, the onus of responsibility for any repairs would be on the driver at the time of the incident.
Whitestone Vehicle Sales affords it’s customers a right to reject the vehicle during a thity day period after purchase providing the vehicle has a fault that deems it unsatisfactory and not commensurate with it’s age and mileage and this fault was not discussed at the point of sale. The vehicle must be returned to us before a decision on a refund will be entertained. The thirty day period shall commence the day after the date of delivery and will include weekends and Bank Holidays.
In the event we reach a decision to refund, the vehicle will require a full inspection of the condition, with any condition difference to delivery being deducted from the refund price. There is a duty of care for you, as the customer to return the goods in a condition commensurate with that at the time of delivery. We reserve the right, entirely at our discretion to charge any amounts required to return the goods to the condition at the time of delivery. All vehicles returned will be subject to a returns fee of £295.00 which represents the administration fee and costs associated with re-preparation of the vehicle to return it to sale or for it’s disposal.
If we agree to recover the vehicle, we reserve the right entirely at our own discretion to charge a collection fee that will reflect our costs of collection from our branch to your place of collection. These charges will also be subject to VAT.
A usage charge will be applied relating to the mileage the vehicle has been driven under your ownership, representing the increase in mileage between delivery and return of the vehicle. This will be evidenced by the odometer reading at the time of return and that indicated on the sales invoice at the point of delivery. Zero pounds will be charged up to 100 miles and £1 per mile for any mileage increase in excess of 100 miles up to any last completed mile.
We will refund any amounts due after adjusting for any returns fees, usage charges or other fees as soon as reasonably possible and within 14 working days.
