Orders

5 An order of a vehicle from the DSG Auto Contracts Ltd website is an expression of interest by you to obtain the vehicle ordered at a price similar to that advertised.

5.1 An order does not create a contract between you and us. DSG Auto Contracts Ltd, acting as your agent will endeavour to source a suitable vehicle as per your requirements. You must then enter into a finance agreement with a finance company. We will introduce you to our carefully selected panel of finance providers who will pay us for introducing you to them.

5.2 Following an accepted order, we will carry out a credit check on you as part of your application process. If you are applying on behalf of a limited company, you are confirming you have authority to authorise a credit search in the name of the company and each director.

5.3 If, following an Order for a generic car model, the manufacturer changes the Specifications or price or model year then you will have the option either to accept the Car with the changed Specifications, Price or model year (and pay any resulting increase to the Price) or to cancel the Order and receive your deposit back in full.

5.4 If, following the acceptance of your order, it is later determined that the manufacturer has displayed inaccurate or incomplete information on their website and this has resulted in the quoted price or specification being unavailable, DSG Auto Contracts Ltd will not be held responsible for the completion of the contract.

5.5 If the cost of road fund licence or the rate of value added tax increases then you will be required to pay the increased amount.

5.6 We will not charge a fee for introducing you to a finance lender (also known as a credit brokerage fee). We reserve the right, in relation to business customers entering non-regulated agreements, to charge a cancellation fee of £500+VAT for services already provided before your cancellation. This charge will increase if further charges are imposed on DSG Auto Contracts by our supplier, for example if a car has been specifically ordered to your own specification. In the event that a cancellation fee is being charged then once you confirm via email that you are cancelling the order an invoice will be issued. Payment of the invoice can be made by bank transfer, card or cheque and must be within 14 days.Proof of this additional charge will be provided in the form of an underlying invoice. An order from you to DSG Auto Contracts can take the form of an email, a signed order form or a verbal instruction.

Delivery

6.1 The Estimated Delivery Date specified in your Vehicle Order is representational of the time we believe it will take to deliver the Car to you. We will do all that we reasonably can to ensure we deliver the Car to you before the Estimated Delivery Date and we shall inform you as soon as is practicable if we are unable to deliver the Vehicle by that estimated delivery date. If delivery has not taken place within 28 days of the Estimated Delivery date, you will be entitled to cancel the contract and receive repayment of your Deposit unless you have agreed otherwise, verbally or in writing, to accept a late delivery. Where delay is caused by circumstances beyond our control we will not be liable for any damages related to the delay.

6.2 If you have chosen to have the Vehicle delivered you acknowledge and understand that in some instances the vehicle may not be totally clean and may have suffered reasonable wear and tear as a result of the journey. You accept that DSG Auto Contracts Ltd is not liable for such wear and tear unless it goes beyond what could reasonably be expected as a result of the journey.

6.3 When your Car is delivered you will be invited to inspect the vehicle and sign a Delivery Acceptance Note. By signing this note you will be deemed to have accepted the Car in the condition it arrives. If you find any damage to the Car you should detail any such Damage on the Delivery Acceptance Note before signing it. If you do not wish to accept Delivery of the Car because of such Damage, then DO NOT sign the Delivery Acceptance Note. In the event that there is Damage to the Car but you still wish to accept Delivery, and provided that you have noted such Damage on the Delivery Acceptance Form, then you will have the right to have the Damage made good. DSG Auto Contracts Ltd cannot be responsible for any claim of Damage to the Car if it is not brought to our attention on the Delivery Acceptance Note.
