RAC Warranty Information

RAC Approved Dealer

Buying a car is one of the biggest financial outlays you make, so we understand the importance of choosing the right vehicle from the right dealership. To give you extra confidence in finding the right car for you, we’ve partnered with the RAC to become an RAC Approved Dealer.

What does this mean?

Being an RAC Approved Dealer means you’re dealing with a brand you can trust. The RAC wouldn’t partner with a dealership who didn’t share their attitude to supporting the customer by delivering the best possible experience. It means we comply to a code that is Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) approved, a not-for-profit organisation that ensures trading standards are being met.

Every vehicle sold comes with the following:

  • RAC Approved Preparation Standard – A vehicle preparation standard that all our vehicles MUST meet before they are sold. We are audited at least 6 times a year by the RAC to ensure we are consistently preparing all our vehicles to meet these standards.
  • RAC Warranty – 6-month warranty with every eligible vehicle*. RAC Warranty is included with all makes and models of vehicle and can give you the extra reassurance in the event of something happening to your vehicle. For additional peace of mind, you can extend the term of the warranty to up to 36 months for an additional fee.
  • 12 months free RAC Breakdown cover – Every vehicle includes free 12 months RAC Breakdown Cover, which may require activation. RAC Accident Care – Your RAC breakdown cover includes Accident Care and Motor Legal Care (for the duration of Breakdown Cover).
  • Car Data Check – Evidences the vehicle you are buying isn’t stolen, written off or has any outstanding finance.
