Car supermarket group Big Motoring World has sold the same number of cars during the Novermber lockdown as it did in November 2019.
Despite its showrooms being closed, in line with national restrictions, the group’s dealerships have achieved 1,600 click-and-collect sales since November 1.
Peter Waddell, Big Motoring World’s CEO, said that the group usually sees a slow down in sales at the tail end of the year, but he’s been delighted by its click and collect success.
“When our showrooms were forced to close again we were in a great position as we had a brilliant click and collect system in place where customers could purchase online and pick up their cars from our showrooms.
“The numbers have been brilliant. They are down on October when we were open, but compared to last year they are on par and that is a huge success in my book,” he added.
Big Motoring World allows customers to reserve a car for just £99 on its website and payment can be made in full entirely online, including car financing options.
Customers also benefit from a seven-day test drive and can hand the car back if it’s not for them, a 90-day warranty and each car is thoroughly prepared at the group’s facility in Peterborough.
Waddell said: “Lockdown has simply made Big Motoring World more efficient, more driven and the teams have worked harder to sell just as many cars as last year.
“Demand is still very strong for used cars – even despite the lockdown – and used car prices have held up well too.”
