Auto Solutions launches department for certified pre-owned cars
Auto Solutions, the Pembroke vehicle dealership, has launched a certified pre-owned department.
The new initiative allows customers to trade in or sell their pre-owned car, eight years and younger, to Auto Solutions.
Customers may also purchase a car from the CPO inventory.
Glen Smith, managing director, said: “Our new CPO department will take the hassle out of selling your car, saving the need to transfer test it and schedule test drives with buyers.
“Customers can trade in their car and drive out with an upgrade from our CPO inventory, or simply sell their car to us for a competitive price. Our experienced CPO team will evaluate your car’s condition, age, mileage and market value to provide a fair and transparent value.”
He added: “This additional service allows customers to be more flexible when purchasing a new car as it alleviates the inconvenience of having to sell your old car before being able to purchase a new vehicle.
“To be honest, this service is something our customers have been asking for for a while now and we are finally happy to be able to offer it.”
The dealership said the CPO department is led by Damien Donfield, a certified pre-owned sales specialist who has more than 30 years’ experience in the motor trade.
Mr Donfield said: "I have always had a passion for pre-owned vehicles, and look forward to bringing my knowledge and expertise to our customers for a seamless pre-owned car-buying experience.
“Our focus is on providing customers with quality cars that have undergone a rigorous multi-point health check and safety test conducted by our manufacturer-trained technicians.
“We will be continually expanding our inventory to offer customers a wide variety of high-quality pre-owned cars from leading automotive brands.”
Sales director Harry Andrews added: “As the leading automobile distributor in Bermuda, it makes sense that Auto Solutions be the first to enter into the certified pre-owned vehicle market.
“Not only do we have the expertise to calculate true market value, but we also have a highly skilled team of auto technicians that will thoroughly service the pre-owned vehicles we purchase.”
The firm said Auto Solutions’ CPO cars will come with a 12-month or 12,000-kilometre warranty, whichever comes first.
