In this scenario you have viewed the car on the internet and have made enquiries on the car with ourselves. However you do not want to commit to the car until you have physically seen the car and have had a test drive. You want us to reserve the car for you and give you first refusal. We will then hold the car for you for up to 3 days (72 hours ) for you to make arrangements to view the car. Once you have viewed the car and it is not what you want then we will simply refund the deposit on your card.
If however you fail to turn up within the 3 days then the deposit will be forfeited and the car will go back on sale. This is only fair because in the 3 days that we held the car for you we have given you an undertaking that we will not sell it to anyone else. We generally do not accept holding deposits during the weekend period.
