We Pay More

If you car is less than 6 years old and under 60,000 and you are offered a better price elsewhere, simply bring in proof of the offer and if validated we will pay more (we will pay more than the higher offer you have received less any administration fees and on the basis a physical appraisal has been carried out on your car by the same company offering you a higher price)

You will also need to bring a copy of your driving licence and bank statement dated within the last 3 months

A. We can still buy your car but we will need to see proof of ownership and ask one of our trained technicians to inspect the vehicle on a ramp in our workshop.

Peter Ambrose (Castleford) Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Peter Ambrose (Castleford) Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.


We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes PSA Finance UK. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to PSA Finance UK, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to be make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and PSA Finance UK also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
