At Wessex Garages one of our proudest achievements is being incredibly customer-focused and friendly. Our aim is to be as helpful as possible to our customers, which is why we have launched our brand new concept "Demo To Your Door".
Demo To Your Door provides the link between buying online and visiting one of our dealerships, the service allows you to purchase completely from the comfort of your own home or try your choice of vehicle before having to visit a dealership.
We know that purchasing a car is a big decision, and this is not something we take lightly. Demo To Your Door means you can now test drive any of our cars from your home or workplace. We know that many of our customers have busy lives, and we hope this new idea will make it more convenient for you. And if you love the car and would like to purchase it, we can sort things out right then and there.
Not only is this new idea designed to be convenient for you, but it also allows you the opportunity to drive your choice of vehicle in a familiar setting. An experienced Wessex Garages staff member will also be on hand to talk through all the features of the model and answer any questions you may have.
This new concept is part of our focus on being a customer-focused organisation, and offering excellent customer service. We want you to have the best experience possible when buying from Wessex Garages.
Demo To Your Door saves time and travel by bringing the car to you. Test drive in your own neighborhood on roads you're familiar with rather than busy roads around our dealerships.
HOW IT WORKS
All you have to do is choose the car you want to test drive, give us some brief information about yourself and book your preferred test drive time – it’s really that simple.
We will then contact you via your preferred method to confirm the details and answer any further questions.
We will then bring your chosen car to your home or workplace as requested.
Please select your local branch below
Do I have to pay for my test drive?
No. The best part is that you can test drive for free.
A test drive typically lasts for up to an hour, which is fine for most customers. If you feel you would like a longer test drive, please let us know when we contact you and we will do our best to arrange this.
Can I test drive more than one car?
You can test drive one or even two cars for free (only one car per request).
Is the service safe and reliable to use?
Yes. The people bringing the car to you and accompanying you on the test drive are full-time Wessex Garages trained employees.
Do I need to show my UK driver’s licence?
Yes. You’ll need a full UK driving licence to test drive your car and will be required to present the photocard part of your licence before your test drive.
It’s worth remembering that since 8th June 2015, the paper counterpart to the photocard driving licence is no longer valid and isn’t issued by DVLA. The information you’ll need is now available on the DVLA website.
Is there an age restriction?
Yes, due to the terms of our insurance policies, all drives must be over the age of 21.
Are there any limitations on the distance from the dealership of Demo To Your Door?
Yes, once you select your chosen dealership you will see a highlighted map indicating areas covered by each branch.
