Re: New Car - Lease it or Buy it?
No harm, no foul - time & my kids make me feel old these days!
No, I had my redundancy money to buy the van outright.
Bearing in mind that it was some 8 years ago, I found them very professional to deal with and everything was very easily done, from the initial enquiry to the handover.
I'd priced my van from my local Fiat dealer (they wanted £19,000 as it was the largest van with the biggest engine, that I was interested in), then I looked on the Motorpoint website - same van £10,000.
We've never been in a position to buy a new vehicle since (kids drain disposable income like nothing else), but if we were and they could supply the vehicle, I wouldn't hesitate to deal with them again.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
