Derek Merson

Metropole Garage, North Rd, Minehead TA24 5QW, UK – 01643 702345

I bought a wav car off them over 3 years ago ...superb people ...top class !

Had an issue with my campervan. They were too busy to book me in at short notice, but because they took the time to give it a quick check over they resolved it immediately and no charge, and course I will use them in future because they were so helpful.

Priddys Motor Company

Whitegate Rd, Minehead TA24 5SP, UK – 01643 800610

One of my best car buying experiences, genuine and friendly, no pushy sales, great communication and gave me a decent price on my part exchange. My upgrade is a fine example of the type of quality cars for sale. If you live miles away don't hesitate, well worth the trip out, I can highly recommend Priddys Motor Company

Well worth the 400 mile round trip to collect my 2010 330d m-sport. Priddys motor company are second to none and I am over the moon with my purchase. The car was exactly as described, it’s immaculate! If you’re considering to travel a long distance to view a prestige used vehicle from priddys, don’t even second guess yourself because their cars are exactly as described. If only all car traders were this honest!! My whole experience was superb from start to finish and I was offered refreshments whilst I sorted the payment and insurance for the car, and they were a very professional company to deal with. I will be returning in the future without a shadow of doubt. Excellent 5***** service all round. Thanks Mike 🤙🏼 Pete

Beaver Ford

Enterprise Park, Brunel Way, Minehead TA24 5BY, UK – 01643 706868

I collected a car from this dealer as a trade plater. Some other dealers run the other way when they see me coming as they cannot be bothered, but not these people. They could not have been more helpful! Welcoming to all is a sign of a good dealership. Thanks guys!

Would never buy a car from any other dealer. Wayne is the most amazing sales person we have ever dealt with and all the staff go above and beyond to help.

What are you rights when your buy a used car?
The Citizen's Advice Bureau have an excellent and comprehensive section on their website. If you find something wrong after purchasing a used car It’s worth knowing that you’ll still have legal rights even if you don’t do the proper checks. If there’s something wrong with your used car you may have a legal right to a repair or some or all of your money back.

Make sure a trader is trustworthy
If you’re buying from a trader look for an established firm with links to trade associations like the Retail Motor Industry Federation or a sign that says they follow The Motor Ombudsman's code of practice look for a trader with cars inspected by an independent engineer or motoring organisations.

Buying from an auction
Auctions are the riskiest way of buying a used car as you probably won’t have the legal protection that you have buying through a trader. Ensure that you read the auction house’s T and Cs before buying a car.

Check a car’s history

Check the car’s details with the DVLA
  • Ask the seller for the car’s registration number
  • MOT test number
  • mileage
  • make and model
Use the DVLA’s free online vehicle information checker to make sure what the seller tells you matches the DVLA’s records.

Check the MOT and history
You should check that MOT tests have been done regularly throughout the car’s history. Check this on GOV.UK. This is a free service.

Get a private history check.
These will cost up to £20 – but they can be worth it! This will give you valuable information about serious problems the car might have including if:
the car has been stolen
the seller still owes money on the car
the car has been in a serious accident
the car is showing the correct mileage
the car has been written off

Inspect the car and take a test drive
You should arrange to view the car in daylight, preferably when it’s dry - it’s harder to spot damage to the car if it’s wet. It’s a good idea to meet at a private seller’s house so that if something goes wrong after you’ve bought the car, you’ll have a record of their address.

The AA has a useful checklist for what to look out for when inspecting a used car and its paperwork. Make sure you ask about the car’s service history.

Always take the car for a test drive.
Drive for at least 15 minutes on different types of road. The AA has a checklist for what to look out for when taking a test drive. If you’re still not sure - get an independent report
However, you can go a step further and get an independent report on the car. This will give you detailed information about the car’s condition and will cost around £100 to £200 an are available from motoring organisations like the AA
