Focus on price to change or how much your monthly payment changes.
You can play about with a PX figure, but you cannot play about with a price to change or a monthly figure. A vehicle price can be inflated to give you an inflated price for your old vehicle but this is senseless.
Hopefully we all have the common sense and intelligence to see through deals that give you £2000 minimum PX for your old van even if its been used to store chickens….you’re just paying too much for your new van.
Every PX deal we physically send an agent to check the vehicle condition.
If you have misdescribed your vehicle then its going to unravel pretty unquickly.
e.g mileage, condition, spare keys, service history, vehicle interior.
This will slow down delivery by at least a week while we have to redo the finance application. In some cases a fresh finance application can get rejected, as sometimes its a different underwriter who spots something the there didn’t.
Most customers ask one question first which is “how much” and of course we cant answer that without knowing .
All that really matters is how much your payments change, and how much deposit you have to find.
Many finance companies won’t stop this automatically.
There are instances where settlements are paid off and customers are still paying for their old van a year later, and it can take months for you to recover these payments.
The discounts of a scrappage are never greater than the deals we offer anyway. These are deals where politicians think they are doing a great job by taking older vehicles off the road. A scrappage scheme is never as good as the deals we offer anyway compared to selling your van yourself.
