Can Demo Sales Save You Money?

Buying a demo car can be a great way of driving away a nearly new car at a heavily discounted price. They are new cars that have been registered to a garage so that they can be used for potential buyers to test drive. These models are usually very well kitted out with optional extras and a high spec as they are show cars, similar to show homes

Garages generally need to hold on to these cars for a certain amount of time, around three months or so, in order to get a discount from the manufacturer for registering and using a car as a demonstrator. When this time is up, the car is then sold on as an ex-demo car. We price the car accordingly to make it attractive to buyers compared to a brand new version. So you could be looking at up to €4,000 off the price of a new model.

The discount will reflect the fact that the car has already had one previous owner, our garage, and that it has racked up some mileage. The higher the mileage the greater the discount will be. If the car has any marks/scuffs we will touch them up or try and polish them out. However, these ex-demo cars are usually very clean and well looked after as they are there to help drive sales.


Warranty: A manufacturer’s warranty begins when the car is first registered. So if an ex-demo car is six months old it is six months into its warranty and again, the price will reflect this. Our demo cars represent exceptional value for money with huge savings on all models and remember they will still hold the same value for future resale as if you had bought it brand new. The only difference will be that the garage is registered as the first owner.
