Lockdown Has No Impact On Car Buying Says Report

Sun 8th Nov 2020

As industry leaders such as carsupermarket.com offer innovative ‘click and collect’ and online ordering solutions, new research from a leading motoring influencer has found that new and used car buyers are not impacted by the lockdown.

While some car dealerships have had to close their doors, CarSupermarket.com customers can browse thousands of used cars from the safety of their own home and once they have selected their new car can click and collect or have it deliver to their home for free.

According to research from Auto Trader, 55 per cent of car buyers said the lockdown had ‘no impact’ on their decision to buy a car, and encouragingly almost one in ten said it would make them want to buy a car even quick. The same research found that more than half of potential car buyers were happy to buy via click and collect or home deliver - showing that the pandemic isn’t halting purchases.

“An Auto Trader spokesperson said: “This lockdown is different to last time and there’s a job to do to ensure all car buyers know this.

“Whilst they can’t go and visit dealers on their forecourts during lockdown, they can still buy a car from the comfort of their own home.

“Under the new restrictions, dealerships can still operate home delivery and click and collect, so people can absolutely go ahead with buying their next car during this period.”
