Customer Sales Journey: Successfully buying a car long distance

Buying a car is one of the biggest investments that people will make in their lives, and with the growth in internet sales people are looking further afield when buying their next car. Jennings Motor Group takes a look at the internet sales process and how simple it is to buy your next car however far the delivery distance is.

Superb customer feedback

We take pride in every element of our award-winning Customer service and following the successful delivery of this customer's Ford Focus from our Jennings Ford Direct, we thought we should share a bit more about the process and how easy it can be.

After dealing with salesman Steve Hunton and then taking delivery of his Ford Direct car, this customer emailed us to say;

Dear Bev

I am pleased to write and commend all aspects of the sale process handled by Steve Hunton.

We have never purchased a car long distance like this before and I had concerns throughout until the car arrived exactly as described.  Our concerns were unfounded.  The communication was prompt and accurate.

The application for the finance was particularly painless.

I would also say that SW Transport that delivered the vehicle were excellent.  Communication was good both via Steve and directly.  The car arrived in good time and the driver was unhurried and spent plenty of time explaining the functions of the car.  It was beyond what we had expected.

Thank you.
