The exceptional programme is designed solely with the car buyer in mind and includes a wear and tear 6 month all mechanical and electrical warranty^, 60 point vehicle inspection, 6 month recovery package, provenance check (HPI), mileage verification, independent valuation from the UsedCarExpert.co.uk and a dealer buy-back guarantee meaning that the dealer will guarantee to buy back the car, regardless of the age and mileage upon the purchase of another vehicle from them. This market leading, value added car warranty package is automatically included with EVERY vehicle sold by any of the Safe&Sound approved dealerships. Safe&Sound is the new way for consumers to buy their next car with complete confidence – safety checked, independently price checked and warranty protected…it takes away the ‘what if’s’ and doubts, allowing them to enjoy their car without the fear of huge repair bills in the future. The scheme will be limited to a select number of dealers with the aim of recruiting 150 Safe&Sound dealers in year one in the UK.
The scheme will be rolled out across Harratts Peugeot and Harratts Safe&Sound used car site this week with a view to expanding into the Harratts’ Honda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Renault and Volvo dealerships in the near future. Terry Bramley, spokesperson for the Harratts franchise commented: “I am very excited about the launch of Safe&Sound at two of our Barnsley dealerships. For years I’ve been looking for a complete programme that focuses on customer satisfaction and retention, now I’ve found it. We all know that buying a car is a major investment and Safe&Sound offers our customers complete peace of mind. It’s a winning product for the motorist and the customer care package fits perfectly with the Harratts’ family values.”
The programme is endorsed by motor racing legend Sir. Stirling Moss OBE, who was renowned for his impressive Formula 1 victories back in the 1950’s and 60’s. Stirling commented: “I often get approached to put my name to products and services but when I was introduced to Safe&Sound I knew this was something that was valuable for the consumer… a car warranty programme that goes further and adds value – a product that is good for the car buyer and good for the industry. We all know buying a car is a big decision and this product brings with it peace of mind – removing those niggling doubts about safety, car history, real mileage and even if you’re paying a fair price. I am pleased to have my name associated with Safe&Sound; it’s a winning product for motorists in the UK.”
To add further value, Safe&Sound car buyers will get entered into a draw to win back the price of their vehicle up to £15,000 and Stirling Moss will personally draw the winners name at random from the Safe and Sound database in April 2012.
The WMS Group are currently recruiting dealerships nationwide that would like to become part of the Safe&Sound dealer network who want to offer this real customer care and satisfaction scheme. Safe&Sound will be advertised on the radio and SKY television later in the year. To find out more information about the scheme, visit www.safeandsound.co.uk
