Westover Group has relaunched its new website, designed to be more user friendly.
The new site - at at www.westovergroup.co.uk -makes it easier for car-buyers to find out quickly and simply about the full range of vehicles and services available from Westover for its 4,500 weekly visitors.
Users can search according to budget, colour choice, preferred transmission or fuel type, by road tax band, using emissions levels and annual licensing costs.
Car buyers can make an online offer for one of the 600 or more used vehicles they spot on the website, simply by clicking the ‘negotiate’ button and putting in a price.
There’s also a section for anyone interested in selling their current car. Customers just enter its details and wait for Westover’s estimate (which can be confirmed once the vehicle has been seen).
Additionally, there’s the chance to apply for finance and insurance and to register for updates about Westover’s special offers and sales.
“The way our customers choose their next car and make other vehicle-related decisions is changing fast,” said Paul Dillon, Westover Group operations director.
“An ever-increasing number look online before visiting one of our 18 showrooms across Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire; others use our website to book service or MoT appointments or simply to confirm the location of our dealerships.
"Buyers tend to surf from the comfort of their homes during the week and pop in at the weekend to test drive the cars they have shortlisted.
“However people choose to contact us, it’s important that we keep pace with change and make the process as simple as possible.
“As a result, we’ve invested heavily behind the scenes to make sure our online presence reflects the seamless service standards found in our showrooms - and to ensure that our ‘virtual showroom’ is easy to navigate and bang up to date with speedily downloaded information."
The Westover Group has showrooms in Bournemouth, Christchurch, Corfe Mullen, Ferndown, New Milton, Poole and Salisbury.
