Car Buyer's Guide - Top 5 reasons to choose a car supermarket

If you’re on the lookout for a used car, you’ve got a few options when it comes to how you buy. But remember – there’s five great reasons why choosing a car supermarket’s much better than doing things privately or going for a franchised dealer.

Need a reminder on why coming to a used car dealership like The Car People is the best way to avoid any dodgy dealings? Then read on…

1. Choice

A car’s a major purchase, so you want to be sure that you’ve looked carefully at all your options. Internet browsing is a great place to start, but there’s no substitute for actually getting out there and taking a look at the cars you’re considering.

Visit a car supermarket and they make this easy for you – you can browse hundreds of different makes and models, all in one place, and all in your own time.

With so many to choose from, you’ll never have to compromise. And car supermarkets will usually let you test drive as many as you like, too, so you can be 100% sure that you’ve made the right choice.


Even if you can’t find what you’re after on your first visit to your local car supermarket, that doesn’t have to be the end of it.

New stock arrives all the time, plus as many dealerships are based across more than one location, they’ll probably be able to source the car you’ve decided you want pretty quickly. Simple.

Don’t forget, either, that you can also get a great trade-in price with us, so there’s no need to worry about what you’re going to do with your old car.

3. Value

With regular access to the latest reputable data and the capacity to process cars quickly and efficiently, car supermarkets are able to price their cars more competitively – and fairly – than many other retailers. So if it’s a great deal you’re looking for, don’t go elsewhere.

At The Car People, we check on our prices every day to make sure we’re offering our customers the best possible value.

4. Expert Help

As you’d expect, the staff at car supermarkets have seen every make and model going, so they know their stuff!  Whether you’re not sure where to start or you’ve just got a few questions, you can get open and honest advice from the teams there.

Unlike many private dealers, car supermarkets don’t usually pay their staff through a ‘low wage, high commission’-based system – and this means you’ll always get genuine, ‘no pressure’ assistance.

5. Confidence

You should never feel unsure or uncertain about any part the car buying process… When you deal with a used car supermarket, you can be confident that all the i’s have been dotted and the t’s have been crossed.

At The Car People, our cars are checked by eight different quality specialists to ensure they’re in top condition. And we’ll make sure all the paperwork is fully taken care of for a smooth, hassle-free handover.
