Carcraft

Carcraft is headed as the UK’s leading used car supermarket. The origins of this Rochdale-based dealer dates back to the year 1951. As it stands they currently have 11 UK showrooms. These can be found in Chertsey, Enfield, Lakeside, Leeds, Merseyside, Newport, North East, Rochdale, Sheffield, the Trafford Centre and West Midlands. This brand from CC Automotive Group Ltd operates on the web through www.carcraft.co.uk. The slogan of this company is “Drive Happy” and this is backed up by each customer earning a comprehensive 1 year Guarantee and a free MOT in the first year. They sell up to 40 of the world’s most popular manufacturers.

They don’t make a reference to how many cars they have in stock at any one time. The Carcraft finance page heads directly to a secure application form. You can find further details when you are looking across their stock range. Whilst the financing agreement isn’t disclosed, you can choose between 36 and 60 months. When selecting a car valued at £10,699 the pricing came in at £5191.22 and the APR was 19.9%. Whilst the lender partners are not mentioned, it does appear that they are using subprime credit providers. They in fact note in the FAQ that they can approve those with a poor credit score.

Although not stated it is likely that a Hire Purchase contract will be arranged. Rather than informing the user of what’s available, they tend to focus on directing potential clients to apply at www.carcraft.co.uk. They do at least use encryption here. This brand is popular online (also under the alternative Car Craft spelling). The showrooms are also well known, particularly the Carcraft Leeds dealership. The North West region does look to be their prime location. All of the outlets are importantly open every day over extended hours handing plenty of time for visits. The Monday to Saturday times run from 9am to 9pm and Sunday is 10am to 6pm.
