Wow how do they manage these prices!

I was hooked by my local dealership giving me the sales patter whilst my VW Touran was in for its 8 year service. The suggestion that I would get preferential rates on trading my vehicle got me looking at a new Touran to replace the one that I had had from new and had been very pleased with. The last time I bought my vehicle I got a price from my local VW dealership and then surfed the net to see if I could better it. I managed to get a quote that was substantially cheaper and then tried to negotiate some parity with the dealership. They were not prepared to shift there price so I ended up flying to London to collect my new vehicle and saving myself a large amount of money.
I followed a similar process this time but came upon the Carwow website on google. It has a very simple introduction and it takes no time at all to build the vehicle specification that you are looking for. Once you have designed it to your own specification then you just post that information to Carwow and they send it to selected dealerships to get a price for it. I was impressed first of all with the speed of the replies that I got and more importantly the prices that they were quoting! It did seem a little too good to be true but I opted for the best price offered which happened to be dealership in Cheltenham. I had to change some of the specification that I wanted and my contact at the garage was very prompt and helpful and I ecided to go ahead. Once the £500 deposit had been paid I was given a tracking number which enabled me to follow the new vehicle from point of order to arrival at the dealership, which was helpful and interesting(something that Audi do not offer as a friend ordered a new vehicle at the same time and has still heard nothing from the dealership!) During the 14 weeks that it took from ordering to arriving at the dealership the necessary paperwork and finance documentation has changed hands electronically with a minimum of fuss and yesterday I travelled up to Cheltenham to collect my new car. Apart from the weathers best attempts to stop me getting there by train I made it for my scheduled appointment and duly collected my new Touran. The staff that I had dealt with were all on hand to complete the handover and the pick up was a very smooth and very positive experience. It may take some nerve to commit to buying such an expensive over the web but provided you know exactly what you want I would recommend it without reservation. Without quoting actual figures I made a huge saving on buying my new car and the only loser would be the local dealership who were not able to compete with the prices I got offered when going through Carwow. Have the courage and save yourself a lot of money!

Garden XL

Great BBQ at the best price!

I needed to buy a new cooking grill for my Weber and as it was so cheap I bought a whole new BBQ! Great product with prompt service, I will be keeping pace of their offers in the future.

Edge & Wax

Prompt efficient service but not the product I was expecting!

Ski boot bag arrived but not as suggested in the description and the pictures one that would hold boots and helmet. I have been looking for a bag that could serve as hand luggage and keep the bulky items out of my main luggage and the description implied this was the answer. It holds boots just but the helmet would have to be strung on the outside which is not how it would appear in the advertising. Have decided to keep it to avoid the hassle of packaging it up and sending it back!

Hi Arthur, Thank you very much for your kind review, i am sorry if you feel the wesite text was misleading. This text was actually taken from the Atomic website but we will try and add alittle more clarification on this. If you check on the attached label you can see that you can attach your boots to the side of this bag (you open up the side pockets and there are specific straps to allow for this) this then gives you the room to put a helmet in the main compartment. however this is for walking from your hotel to the piste, or around resort and would not be secure for using it as hand luggage when flying.

We can certainly take this back for a full refund if you wish, however it appears you are happy to keep this item, so i hope you find it useful and get some great skiing in.

Again thank you for your review and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

All the choice without the stress!

Needing to replace my wife's loved and treasured sunglasses I found the exact same pair on this site. They were almost the same price as she paid when she bought them in Duty Free 2 years ago so a bargain. Delivered promptly and with minimal fuss so would defianteley recommend and use this company again!
