Researching Your Needs

Before diving into the world of used cars, it’s important to understand your needs and budget. Take some time to determine the type of car you require and the specific features you’re looking for. Consider factors such as fuel efficiency, maintenance costs, and insurance premiums to narrow down your options.

Financing Options

If you require financing for your used car purchase, we understand that exploring the various options available can be overwhelming. At Llanelli Motor Company, we aim to make the financing process transparent and tailored to your specific needs. Our dedicated team is here to guide you through the options and help you make an informed decision. When it comes to financing your used car, we offer the following options:

Hire Purchase

Hire Purchase is a popular and straightforward financing method. It involves making an initial payment, usually a reasonable percentage of the vehicle’s purchase price, followed by regular monthly payments over a period of 12 to 60 months. This allows you to spread the cost of the car over a chosen duration, making it more affordable and manageable.

PCP / Hire Purchase with Balloon

For those seeking more flexibility in their financing, PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) or Hire Purchase with a balloon payment may be a suitable choice. With this option, you can reduce your monthly payments by paying a final lump sum, known as a balloon payment, at the end of the term. This provides greater affordability during the repayment period while allowing you to consider your options at the end of the agreement.

Business Finance

If you’re a business owner or have specific finance requirements for your commercial vehicles, our dedicated business department can provide further assistance. They can offer tailored solutions such as Contract Hire or Finance Lease products, designed to meet the unique needs of businesses.

We understand that everyone’s financial situation is different, and our finance experts are here to help you find the most suitable financing option for your used car purchase. We will take the time to understand your requirements, budget, and preferences to provide personalised guidance.

We strive to make the financing process transparent and stress-free. Our goal is to assist you in finding a financing solution that suits your needs without any unnecessary sales pressure. Feel free to reach out to our finance team with any questions or concerns you may have. We’re here to help you make an informed decision and ensure that your used car purchase is not only enjoyable but also financially convenient.

Test Driving and Evaluation

Test driving a used car allows you to assess its performance, handling, and overall comfort. Pay attention to the condition of the interior, exterior, and essential components. Take your time during the test drive to evaluate the vehicle thoroughly.

For added peace of mind, we provide an MOT and a 3 month warranty as standard (12, 24 or 48 months warranty also available) with all cars sold.

Finalising the Purchase

Once you’ve found your perfect car, it’s time to finalise the purchase. Ensure you have the necessary documentation in order, including proof of ownership transfer and compliance with legal requirements. 

We invite you to explore our extensive selection of used cars, and our team is always ready to address any queries you may have. Trust Llanelli Motor Company to make your used car buying journey a smooth and satisfying one.
