At The German Car Group selling high quality German cars isn’t just our job, its our passion.
Comprising part of 3 Independent dealerships located in Ottery St Mary ‘The German Car Group’ carries forward all the values and attributes that our partner dealerships have become Nationally Recognised for.
Specialising in the sale of Audis, Mercedes, and Volkswagens, we go above and beyond to ensure every car we stock is of the highest quality and condition.
As well as being specialists in our field we operate on a strict 'NO PRESSURE' selling environment and offer a scheme where once you have viewed and test driven a vehicle you have the option of being able to reserve it for up to 48 hours at a cost of just £100, which is 100% refundable should there be any reason the car not be for you - this way you can take some time to think it all over without any pressure to make a decision then and there.
All of our cars are sold with a minimum 6 Month RAC Warranty, which can be extended to suit your requirements. Every car goes through our own workshop and is prepared with a Full Service and inspection by our professional mechanics, this includes an RAC 82 point pre-delivery check. As well as this each vehicle is supplied with a FULL 1 YEAR MOT.
As well as priding ourselves on the mechanical preparation of our vehicles, we also take great care in their appearance too and are well known for the high standards in which we present our cars. We have a full time 'in house' team of professional detailers who make sure that each car is prepared to the highest level - all cars receive the following - Gloss enhancing machine polish, wax (which includes paint protection), exterior detailing of plastics & trim, alloys acid cleaned, door shuts, seats & carpets shampooed, leather conditioned, all interior surfaces cleaned & finished, new tailored car mats, new number plates, windows polished, engine-bay completely detailed - you won't be disappointed.
The German Car Group are finance specialists and work with a number of high street lenders and specialist motoring finance houses who help hundreds of customers secure their next car each day.
We offer finance with as little as £100 deposit on any vehicle in stock. With rates set at 9.9% APR representative and NO ADMIN FEES's you'd have to go a long way to find a better finance offer.
Why not see if your eligible for finance by using our FREE finance check - the service is FREE, does not impact your credit rating and should take less that a minute to complete. It only takes a few minutes to submit a finance application which can be done by entering your details below or contact us and we can do the hard work for you. You can also have a play around using our finance calculator on your desired vehicle, this will give you an idea of initial deposits and monthly re-payments.
We also have the facility to offer NATIONWIDE DELIVERY. If you've seen the car you love but just don't have the time to visit or live too far away then we can offer a personal, secure, door to door, delivery service.
The way it works -
- Find the car you would like to buy
- Discuss the vehicle particulars to make sure it ticks all the right boxes for you
- Discuss any extras you may want such as an Extended RAC Warranty or Supagard paint protection
- Pay £100 deposit to secure the vehicle
- We then prepare the vehicle for delivery (Full Service, MOT, 82 PDI Check)
- Work out a convenient time and date for the vehicle to be delivered
- Pay for vehicle
- Vehicle delivered with handover and all documentation explained - easy!
