Answer — Ex-police cars offer you fantastic value for money, in fact most of our vehicles are priced at up to half main dealers’ prices. You also get the opportunity to own a used car with no hidden history, genuine mileage and the reassurance that only expertly trained police drivers have commanded the vehicle.
Q2 — Will I be able to tell that my vehicle used to be a police car?
Answer — No. As all vehicles come direct from various forces throughout the UK the majority have had specialist police equipment fitted and had various standard parts removed from the vehicle, i.e. light bars, aerials fitted and other components modified. All cars pass through our rigorous preparation process with roof and linings refurbished and interior parts restored to normal spec. Each individual vehicle is assessed and refitted with the appropriate parts and every effort is made to ensure the cars look presentable and restored for normal use. Our specialist in-house body shop and preparation centre will re-spray and refurbish the body work, then valet the vehicle fully before the interior is replenished. Each vehicle is different so do call us to confirm what’s been done to each car before purchase.
Q3 — Does the vehicle come with any Service History?
Answer — All vehicles are maintained impeccably by the Police, most vehicles have the history here but if we don’t have it we can write to the Police workshops and try and get it from them or worst case scenario we can try and get from the force Freedom of Information Officer. Its not guaranteed that we can always get the history if we don’t have it upon sale but in most cases it comes!
