The big supermarket chain is now selling used cars via their website, and is one of the first major supermarket chains to do so. Does this start a trend for other big retailers? The big question everyone is asking though is. Would you buy your used vehicle from Tesco? A spokesperson from Tesco stated that they can offer low prices on all their used cars, especially under the current economic climate.
A recent survey conducted by Swinton asked their customers if they would buy a car from a supermarket chain, and these are the findings. Around 40 percent of motorists would buy from a chain like Tesco so long as the price of the car was competitively priced. Plus, around 20 percent of the drivers welcomed this new way of purchasing a car in terms of cost and time.
The only issue motorists may have a problem with buying from a website is that they cannot test drive the car before buying it. However you will be able to see a video of the vehicle and pictures, plus all the information about the car like mileage, fuel usage and much more.
The survey also found that buying a car this way would put off over 25 percent of motorists, stating they would not entertain this method of purchasing a car. The survey got a mixed response from all motorists who took part. I suppose we will just have to wait and see what the future holds for selling used cars though an Internet only website.
