As a dynamic, forward-thinking company, Askaprice thrives off new ideas and always welcomes suggestions as to how we can improve our service. If you have a fantastic idea that you want to tell us about, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us by email: enquiries@askaprice.com.

Does Askaprice have the cars in stock?

Askaprice does not have any direct involvement with any sales of cars through our site. Customers will deal directly with our UK network of highly competitive dealers. Our system is unique in that it matches your requirements to the best offers that our network can offer, saving you time, effort and money.

How can you offer such great prices?

Askaprice has a large number of dedicated dealerships, dealership groups and manufacturers that we work with. When you ask for a quote via Askaprice, it goes out to up to five different partners, based on your type of request (New? Contract hire? Used? Special requests? Geographic location?), via our sophisticated filtration system. This means that your request gets handled by up to five different dealer who will contact you directly and won't know what the other dealers have quoted you. Because of this, they have to 'blind bid' for your business to undercut each other - resulting in great prices!

Are there any associated costs in using your service?

There are no associated costs for users of our service. Askaprice gains revenue through advertising and subscriptions from our network of dealers - not the visitors to our site.

Am I under obligation to purchase a vehicle after I have requested a quote?

Absolutely not. We do ask that visitors who use our free service are seriously looking to purchase a vehicle in the near future. However, if you have not received a quote you wish to pursue, or you end up in the unlikely situation of having found a better quote elsewhere, you are under no obligation to go any further via our dealers.

How long will I have to wait before I can take delivery of a new car?

This depends on the car dealers themselves. In many cases, you may be able to take delivery of your new car within a week.

Isn't it easier to just pick up the phone and call myself?

You could potentially be calling many, many car dealers around the UK in order to find the cheapest quotation. Our automated system automatically processes your requirements and forwards it to our network of national car dealers who can fulfil your request - saving you time, effort, and money! Wouldn't you rather let us work hard on your behalf than racking up your phone bill, costing you money and time?

Are the cars you provide UK spec?

Yes, all of the cars our dealers supply are full UK specification.

What's the difference between registered and pre-registered cars?

A pre-registered car is a model that already has a set of number plates and a V5 document. This may be because a dealer has ordered and registered a vehicle but the customer pulls out of the deal at the last minute. It could also be due to a dealer purchasing a small fleet of cars itself in order to make its sales targets. For all intents and purposes, pre-registered cars are new and will only have delivery mileage on them. You will, however, be listed as the second owner on the V5 document. This may cause your car to depreciate in value faster, but, in return, you should get a red-hot deal at the beginning of the ownership.

Do the vehicles come with a full warranty?

Of course! All vehicles come with full manufacturer warranties.

I'd like to specify my own optional extras. Is this possible?

When you are filling in our quote request form as part of the final stage of the process, you are able to specify any additional extras you would like our network of dealers to include within the quote.

What's MotorTorque and what is it doing on Askaprice?

MotorTorque is a car news and reviews website which is part of The Auto Network and a sister site of Askaprice. Head on over to MotorTorque.com to receive all things motoring-related, from car news to buyers guides, written reviews to galleries and blogs to video reviews.

Are the car dealers trustworthy?

All members of our dealer network are vetted prior to registration, to make sure they are legitimate and adhere to a high level of professionalism. We personally meet all car dealers who are part of our network.

How does your dealer network offer these low prices?

Dealing with customers via the Internet (known as ‘Internet sales leads’ in the industry) is a lot cheaper than running a showroom. Think about it: a showroom has to have cars on display, security and countless sales people milling about. With Askaprice, all they need is enough sales staff to deal with our leads, telephones and computers. The savings are then passed on to you. In addition, Internet sales can be far more efficient, which means that the dealers sell more cars. In turn, this means that they can negotiate even lower rates for the cars they buy and can offer the vehicles even cheaper – so everybody wins!

I'm a car dealer and I wish to receive Askaprice requests. How do I contact you?

Askaprice specialises in providing targeted sales leads for all types of vehicles and, as a measure of our continuing success, we are continuing to expand our network of car dealers to fulfill our customers’ needs. If you would like to discuss a partnership with Askaprice, please call us today on 0844 445 7862.

Do you pass on my contact information to any third parties?

Your personal identifiable information and contact details are stored securely and are only forwarded to our network of car dealers who are able to fulfill your requirements. This information is not sent to any other third parties.
