Since posting this blog on Leamington Car Sales & Vehicle Finance, The Car Company have expanded to offer a service for car dealers that do not have their own consumer credit licence (CCL).
Despite this, I noticed a large number of Google searches for “car finance without a ccl” were ending up on my original post, so I thought I should amend it to ensure the information is up to date.
The Car Company: Used Cars in Leamington Spa & Warwick
The Car Company still sell used cars from their original site on Station Approach, Leamington Spa, CV31 3NN. The “pitch” as it has become known, houses an average of 50-75 used cars towards the cheaper end of the market – as it has done for more than a decade.
However, they have now expanded into Warwick and also maintain a unit which houses 25 – 50 cars catering for those with a bigger budget. Expect cars in the region of £4,500 to £9,500.
All of the Car Company stock is listed on their website, which runs on AutoTrader’s Raszor platform: thecar-company.co.uk – used cars in Leamington Spa & Warwick.
Finance is available on all cars, with rates as low as 2.75% flat. Obviously this is subject to credit status and certain terms and conditions apply.
Dealer Finance: Offering Finance without a CCL
The Car Company now provide a number of additional services related to car finance. The most notable of these supports car dealers that do not have a consumer credit licence, allowing them to offer finance on their own used cars. For full details, call the Car Company Finance team on 01926 498 434.
In addition, they are developing the “AutoTrader for Finance Customers” which trades under the name Shokarz (Show-Cars). Assuming I do my job correctly (i.e. the search engine optimisation) this will be the number one result on Google when people search for “car finance” within the next 12 – 18 months. This is a very competitive search term but I am looking forward to the challenge.
Finally, the Car Company can now offer a form of equity release. If you currently own a car and it is free of finance, the Car Company can release the value of the car. Whilst this doesn’t have the same scope as the likes of big payday loan companies like Wonga, it is a much more cost effective way of borrowing money. Again, terms and conditions apply so I would direct you to the Shokarz Facebook page if you are looking for further details.
The Original Post: YouTube and SEO for motor dealers
The original point of this post was to demonstrate how easy it is to record and upload videos to YouTube. Embedding video content is great for SEO and car dealers really need to get into the 21st century and make the most of the technology at their disposal.
