People always assume we focus on selling cars but in reality buying good cars is our toughest challenge. Sales of cars are healthier now than ever before thanks to a solid reputation coupled with a presence which stretches far and wide. We are very keen to hear from anyone looking to sell their Porsche.
We are happy to buy cars outright paying immediately via transfer straight into your bank account and we also undertake commission sales on your behalf. This option can work well if a car is hard to value, particularly rare or ultra collectible. We make no distinction between our own stock cars and those being sold on behalf of owners when selling, guaranteeing and marketing them in the same way to the buyer. This ensures cars sell quickly and achieve full market value.
One of the UK’s longest established specialist dealers we started selling Porsches in the late 1980s. Entirely self financed we have grown organically through the decades working from a two acre site just outside Uxbridge in the South Buckinghamshire countryside a stone’s throw from London since 1998.
We don’t operate stocking loans or other third party funding arrangements. If you are thinking of leaving a car with someone to sell on your behalf it is essential that you do your homework on them. Does the garage have sufficient net assets to cover themselves if they have to refund the price of their 2 or 3 most expensive cars and still cover all the bills? This is important to know because if your car sells and you don’t get paid you can’t just get the car off it’s new owner, you have a civil case against the garage. When you hand over the keys you are in effect giving the garage cash to the value of your car so don’t get caught out.
If you want to take a look at us and do your homework we are Prestige and Performance Cars Ltd, company number 3219800.
It is easy to get dazzled by a showroom full of gleaming cars but they might all be on sale or return owned by someone just like you, not the garage. Your car will be one of ones the next person looks at when deciding whether to leave theirs or not. Costs soon mount up and it doesn’t take much before the garage is robbing Peter to pay Paul. Car number three needs to sell before owner number 1 can be paid. Rent, business rates, wages, insurances, professional fees, services, advertising, HMRC’s dreaded VAT all need to be covered. If the garage is operating with a stocking loan interest needs to be found and any change in position by the lender can impact cash flow significantly.
Commission sales can work really well and we handle them on a regular basis but be careful and do your homework. We offer a secure and effective platform through which to sell your Porsche. Because we are happy to offer an outright purchase price as well as a figure to sell the car on your behalf you get the best of both worlds. Selling to us or through us is safe and painless. You don’t have to entertain strangers into your home and you won’t get caught out by the plethora of scams used to try and separate owners from their valuable cars. Thanks to our reputation the financial difference between dealing with us and a private buyer might be smaller than you think.
