Lightcliffe Evaluation Weekend

The last year has been challenging in so many ways, not least the test it has given to the global business community. Working from home and improvements in working hygiene practices are just two of the most notable, and in most cases these have been welcome changes. 

Not so cordially received however is the impact Covid has had on global supply chains and the knock on effect it has had across all businesses including our own motor industry.

For well over 50 years now the motor industry has thrived on a basic formula, namely, customers deciding they want a new car, then trading their old car in for a new car with the dealers buying part ex. either to retail from the dealership or to pass on into the wider trade. This process worked like clockwork until the supply of new cars dried up, which in turn reduced the used car supply to almost zero.

The only positive outcome that this trend has presented for the customer is a bounce in used car values and the Evaluation Weekend is an opportunity for customers to find out what their car is currently worth. 

The itinerary is straightforward - customers make an anointment to bring their car to the dealership where one of our execs will run a full valuation and get the car velated "while u wait".

It’s always nice to see our customers at the dealership, and it will certainly make a nice change when the "trade in" appraisal valuation brings a smile, rather than a grimace to the face!

Clare James Automotive Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allow Clare James Automotive Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes Volkswagen Financial Services. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to Volkswagen Financial Services, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and Volkswagen Financial Services also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms, and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
