Yes we do. There are always thousands of used cars in stock here that's why we made it into The Guiness World Records as the World's Largest Car Dealership (showroom) in 2007.
As our prices are genuinely low we often sell to traders and other dealerships. To ensure our best car prices are available to the public we charge traders an additional £500 to buy directly from Cargiant.

We buy in our cars in bulk and compare thousands of cars every week. Our high volume turnover and commitment to keeping costs down means we can pass savings on to our customers. You pay less because our profit margins are much lower.
No, you don’t. Just pay us a visit and we’ll be more than happy to help. But if you do prefer to plan then you can always book a test drive or make an appointment to see our finance managers.
Yes. We offer a Children’s menu at our diner and there's a play area too.
We want the best for each and every customer, so we work hard with our pricing team. Every week they monitor both our competitor prices, CAP and Glasses prices across the industry, so that each car is at the lowest possible price and you won’t need to negotiate. This is why all our prices are fixed.
If you do want to reserve a car then you will be required to see and drive the vehicle before you make any financial commitment. If you are happy with the car and wish to progress then you can leave a £200 holding deposit on cars under £20,000 or £500 for cars over £20,000 when you visit our dealership.
No, we don’t arrange cars for export, but you’re free to export the car yourself. We’ll be happy to help with the relevant documentation. Speak to our team for more information.
We’re committed to providing a high standard of service to you and all our customers. Occasionally we may not live up to our expectations and if this happens we want to hear from you. This will allow us to put matters right and improve our service. We value your feedback and thank you for helping us to improve the quality of our service.
In the first instance, please share your complaint with our staff as they are usually best placed to resolve the problem.
Alternatively, or if your concern remains unresolved, contact our customers service team using the contact below. The customers service department is open Monday to Friday 0900-1900 hours.

Yes. We guarantee our cars have no outstanding finance, and have not been stolen or written off.
Absolutely. We wouldn’t have it any other way. We offer test drives with no obligation to buy. Due to London traffic, it will be a short drive – but enough to get a good idea if it’s the right car for you. Please bring with you a valid driving licence.
If you book a test drive online, the car will still remain on sale. Should the car sell before your appointment then we'll let you know straight away.
Please note, that we do not allow dogs or any other pets in our showrooms, forecourts and cars. Please remember to plan ahead if you do have a pet.
We charge this fee to cover essential documentation and administration costs. Your statutory rights are not affected.
Yes, thoroughly. Every car we offer for sale at Cargiant has successfully passed a demanding mechanical and safety inspection in addition to a final quality control inspection. If you want to double check before taking delivery of any vehicle, you’re welcome to arrange an independent inspection at your own expense. If any mechanical or electrical problems are evident at these times, they will be remedied accordingly.
Note: inspections must be pre-booked so we can allocate space within our workshops for the inspection to take place.
The way you purchase road tax has changed. Since October 1 2014, car tax is no longer transferable between owners. This means that now, buyers of used cars will have to tax them themselves as soon as they take ownership, rather than benefiting from tax already paid for by the seller. You can easily use the free internet access at our showrooms to purchase yours before driving away in your new car.

Come and see us in person. Deposits are by debit card or cash. As soon as you pay the £200 deposit for cars under £20,000 or the £500 deposit for cars over £20,000, we’ll reserve the car in your name for up to three days. Please note that this deposit is non-refundable.
We remove the vehicle from sale, preventing any other customers from buying it. The only exception is if you are not accepted for finance arranged by Cargiant, in which case we’ll refund the full deposit.
Yes this is possible*. In order to purchase a car you’ll need to bring the following documentation with you:
Sorry, we are unable to accept mobile phone bills.
*Please be aware for same day drive away circumstances and timings apply. We advise allowing 2 hours from the time a deposit is placed.
Due to health and safety reasons we’re unable to keep the tanks in our cars full. However, you’ll have enough fuel to take you to a local petrol station. You’ll find a petrol station within a few minutes of Cargiant:
Scrubs Lane Service Station

London, W10 6AH

Yes. The MOT expiry date of each car is published on the car details page. Cars have a minimum of 60 days MOT.
You can pay for your new car using the following payment methods:
Unfortunately, we cannot accept Building Society Cheques or credit card payments towards the purchase of your car. However, credit cards are accepted for additional products i.e. Mechanical Breakdown Insurance and Vehicle Protection System (GardX).
Please note: we only accept UK debit cards and debit card payments over £500 incur a 0.2% surcharge. Cash payments over £1,000 incur a 1% handling fee and we only accept up to £10,000 in cash.
The debit and credit card surcharge is in place to reflect the new transaction fee policies introduced by Visa and Mastercard in 2016. This change increased costs to businesses for accepting payments made by credit and debit cards as it removed the 50p cap on transaction fees.
As a result:
At Cargiant we work hard to make sure our pricing is as low and transparent as possible. So to keep our admin fee at a minimum for all customers, we decided the fairest way to update our pricing was to apply a surcharge when applicable. This charge is equal to the transaction fees Visa and Mastercard charge Cargiant.
*Please note: unfortunately, we cannot accept credit card payments made towards the purchase of your car. However, credit cards are accepted for additional products i.e. Mechanical Breakdown Insurance and Vehicle Protection System (GardX).
The approval of finance on a car does not necessarily mean the car will automatically be reserved for you. Multiple finance applications can be made on the same vehicle and the demand for our vehicles are very high therefore we cannot always guarantee they will be available to test drive or purchase once you’ve decided to proceed.
We will always have a number of alternative vehicles which match your requirements and if you are not able to find a vehicle that matches your exact specifications on our website, we can arrange to find something similar from our many vehicles in stock that are currently not available via the website.
With regard to your finance application there is no need to make an additional application. As soon as you have found the right car for you we will update your finance arrangement to suit your needs. Our finance team will be available to assist you through this.
Yes. Our finance experts can advise you on all finance options including hire purchase. Don’t worry about your credit history, we’ll do all we can to help.
Yes, we can. We know that driving a car is your livelihood and we more than welcome your business.
We use specialist motor funding divisions of the major high Street names and finance houses such as Blackhorse, Barclays and MotoNovo Finance. We continually assess our list of vendors to ensure our finance packages offer the best value for our customers.
We offer Hire Purchase (HP). Learn more about our finance solutions on our finance page.
Car hire purchase is a form of car finance. With our hire purchase options you can spread the cost of your car in a way that suits you. We offer flexible terms ranging from 36 to 60 months. Whichever you choose, your standard monthly payment will never change. And because the loan is secured on a vehicle, your other credit needs are left undisturbed.
The rate depends on various factors. These include the amount borrowed, term, total, charge for credit, doc fees, and also which of the finance companies we deal with who accept your application for credit. Our APRs are typically very competitive against other car dealers, saving you time and trouble.
We don’t offer an interest free facility, but we do offer very competitive rates.
We offer a variety of terms from 36 months to 60 months (5 years), depending on the finance plan you have chosen.
Yes. You can apply online via this link. If you prefer, you can talk to one of our Business Managers face to face at Cargiant or call the finance team on 0208 969 5511. Our Finance team are SAF approved and know car finance products inside out. They are able to answer any questions you may have as well as guide you through your application. We’re all here to help.
Yes, but this is subject to the finance companies criteria and your personal credit standing.
A less than perfect credit history shouldn’t stand between you and the car you need. That’s why we work closely with customers with low credit scores. We always do our best to find solutions that suit everyone
This depends entirely on the Finance provider, but there are occasions where Finance can be arranged without a deposit. Our business manager will provide you with a full quotation and advise you on the various finance packages available.
Under UK law you must be at least 18 years old to enter into a finance agreement.
Sorry, we’re unable to accept mobile phone bills.
We may still be able to help, just contact us on 020 8964 7509 for more information.
Firstly you need to contact your existing finance provider and obtain a settlement figure. Once you have this, come in and get a value on your part exchange. When we have both these figures, we can work out how much deposit you have towards your next purchase, or if you need to put money in to clear your existing finance.
It’s possible to use your own finance provider, but all our customers appreciate the benefit of doing everything in-house, such as Mechanical Breakdown cover and finance. External finance companies will have to send documents to us. They will then want a receipt of the original documents before paying us for the car, which can lead to a delay in the purchase of your car. If you do decide to go ahead with finance outside of Cargiant, there will be an external finance admin fee of £200 to cover administration costs. You will be able to add the external finance admin fee to the price of the car.
Yes, we’ll need your car to be up and running for a part exchange.
We will consider any age car for part exchange. Just bring us your car for a valuation.
As no two used cars are the same, we’ll need to carry out a physical inspection (covering age, condition, documentation, mileage, ownership, specification and more) on your car before we can offer you the best possible price.
Once an offer is made this is valid for 7 days. So if you’re unsure about your part exchange, you’ve plenty of time to make up your mind.
You need to be the legal owner of the car. For more information and to discuss any extenuating circumstances please call us on 0208 969 5511.
No. Your vehicle must be registered to you at an address in England, Scotland or Wales. To find out more please call 0208 969 5511.
Yes, we run a NMR (National Mileage Register) check to make sure the mileage is correct. We will also want to check the service history to ensure it stacks up, along with the car’s VOSA history (MOT).
Yes. We’ll check to make sure your car has no outstanding finance, is not an insurance write off and is not stolen. We may also carry out an Experian check on the vehicle.
You shouldn’t be on the road without a current MOT certificate. But we will consider a car without a current MOT. For more information please call us on 0208 969 5511.
On average, Cargiant appraises in excess of 2,000 vehicles a month from customers on a part exchange basis. This is far more than any competitor, so it is most definitely worth your time visiting us with your car.
We will look at all part exchange deals on an individual basis and this may be possible. You would need to bring both cars to our dealership for inspection. For more information please call us on 0208 969 5511.
We do not accept specialist vehicles and kit cars. However we’ll consider any age of car that you have in part exchange. Due to new DVLA rules we regret that we cannot accept a vehicle in part exchange without a full logbook. We reserve the right to refuse any vehicles.
A VCAR is any motor vehicle that has been declared an insurance write off. Vehicles on VCAR can still be taken in part exchange. However, this will be at the discretion of our part exchange valuers, and it will be subject to the value, make, age and specification of the vehicle. Please remember there’ll be a significant difference in price. We don’t accept category A or B cars as they should not be on the road.
This can now be done online by visiting https://www.gov.uk/keep-registration-number
Alternatively you can take the original documentation to a local DVLA office, together with a the Vehicle Registration Form V778/1. Once you’ve received the full log book and MOT with the new registration for the vehicle, we’ll accept it for part exchange. Please note that this route will take much longer that the online option.
Depending on the time it takes to remove the private plate and get the new log book, we reserve the right to revalue the part exchange vehicle.
Our offers are based on many criteria, including the condition of your car’s mechanics and bodywork, book prices, previous owners, current valuation guides and the latest market trends.
If you’d like us to settle your outstanding finance you’ll need to obtain an up-to-date settlement letter from your finance provider. If you’re unsure how to get this, our team will be happy to help.
We’ll transfer your money directly to your bank account the next working day, so we’ll need to see a debit card, cheque book, a paying-in book or a bank statement.
If you sell your car to us and have notified the DVLA, you’ll be refunded automatically for any full remaining months left on the vehicle tax. You won’t need to apply separately for a refund. The DVLA will send this refund to the address of the registered keeper.
Your car must be under 6 years old and have less than 100,000 miles on the clock. In addition to this your car must pass our mechanical, body and paintwork inspection.
If your car doesn’t meet these requirements, you can always part exchange your car against a new purchase.
Possibly you would need to provide confirmation of your new and old address. Contact us for more information on 0208 969 5511.
No, we can only pay the legal owner of the car.
Sorry, we’ll need the full, original log book. You can contact the DVLA to apply for a new V5 document, simply visit https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-registration-certificate-v5c-log-book
Sorry, we only buy right-hand drive cars. But we will consider it for part exchange.
Your car will need to be running and would need to pass our mechanical inspection for us to accept it.

The problem with modern wax polishes is they simply do not last. Every time you wash your vehicle with detergent you wash away a layer of protection. The GardX Vehicle Protection System with Nano technology forms a highly resilient protective coating over your paintwork which shields it from harmful elements and provides a high gloss showroom finish that retains its appearance, wash-after-wash.
