Hot Deal hunters please note:

  • Not all brokers deal in UK sourced vehicles, and this may have an impact on standard equipment and warranty levels.
  • The Hot Car Deals we mention are often limited-time offers or apply only to a specific number of cars, so please bear in mind that they will not be available for long.
  • The term 'pre-reg' or 'pre-registered' refers to vehicles that are brand new but already registered with the DVLA. This means that you will appear as the second owner in the V5 registration document (log book).
  • Beware of unscrupulous brokers who tell you that they will have to retain the V5 registration document for a period of time after your purchase of the car. Vehicles sold this way may be cheap, but there are numerous legal implications, including the risk that you the buyer could be committing a criminal offence, so they should be avoided.
  • With regards to all of the above, always make sure you know exactly what you're buying before you put your money down in order to ensure you're making an informed choice.
