How we handle ......... 

IVehicle Quality 

Buying a used car isn't a science, all vehicles have variables:- Age / Mileage / Appearance / Condition / Service History, Maintenance records, Finish / Equipment / Wear / Performance / Durability / Specification / Usage etc.   

One thing is certain, the mechanical parts of a used car are all worn to some degree, expectations of durability should be different for vehicles of different age/ mileage/ or even manufacturer !  - our processes mean your car will be 'health checked' prior to delivery to you.

Buyers are always given a full opportunity to inspect ** & a 'try before you buy' test drive, if either of these inspections raise any queries then please bring it to our attention.

** or have expert/agents appointed to do so on their behalf.


It is important that all buyers inspect the vehicle fully before they buy, TCD sell used vehicles that may or may not have imperfections in their appearance or equipment or function, used vehicles can often have imperfections in paintwork, glass & plastics, upholstery/plastics, or items absent from tools manuals or trim or any other area. Matters raised to us after the sale cannot be considered as the vehicle will have left our premises - none of this affects your statutory rights.

Can I reserve the Car ?

YES !, To ensure no-one else beat you to it then a Reservation payment will initiate your contract to buy, we cease advertising and commence all final preparations for the vehicle. If you subsequently withdraw then we will deduct such costs as are considered reasonable as permitted under UK legislation**, & refund to you within 48 hours, all advance payments are received by us under these terms.

** Final Valet, Admin costs, MoT/Servicing, re-advertising, or any bespoke preparation [not an exhaustive list]

Stage Three]  Email who will reply within 24Hrs - 7 days. All matters are then considered in line with the Consumer Rights Act 2015.

If you still remain dissatisfied & insist on raising a Formal Complaint then 

Stage Four]  Write to: Customer Relations Director at our Website Address.  and are logged & our written response is held on file. Invariably there will be documentation and evidence gathering as part of the process and therefore full co-operation in for obtaining the same is required. 

Hopefully you'll be satisfied by our formal response, but if not then your options are to make representation to either of these bodies;

* Citizens advice Bureau [CAB] or Alternative Dispute Resolution service provider [ADR] 

* the Ombudsman, see 

* County Court [ Warning - it's essential you seek professional advice before embarking on such a course of action.. i.e. a solicitor as the costs and timescales of such action can be high & long ] reliance on internet guidance or chat forums carry risks ! 

Rest assured TCD will do everything we are expected to do when we first hear of a bonafide problem or genuine grievance, we've an excellent reputation for post sale issue resolutions. This said, we've also known some people to have much higher expectations than legislation provides as Used Goods are treated noticeably differently than New Goods! 

* Admin Charges.  There is a £100 [ +vat ] = £120 Admin Fee on all 'Broker introduced' sales ONLY IF the broker charges TCD for the introduction AND the buyer has seen the vehicle advertised on the broker's website in the first instance - Typically such brokers will be CarFinance247, but some other introducers operating in this way.
