Pre Sale  Preparation


As the saying goes “Before anything else, preparation is the key to success” Something we strongly stand by at Joseph Shaw Cars. Each and every car we sell goes through the same process, from start to finish. Firstly, the car is appraised mechanically, and anything that requires attention is catered for at our workshop prior to the vehicle being offered for sale. Servicing and repairs are carried out to specific manufacturer guidelines, ensuring the vehicle you are purchasing has been fed and watered the correct way. 

The second stage of our preparation procedure is to address the cosmetic elements, meaning remedial work is carried out to both exterior and interior of the vehicle where needed. Our insurance approved body-shop will carry out any paintwork rectifications, dent removals, alloy wheel refurbishments as well as a full machine polish to rejuvenate the bodywork prior to sale. Our trained interior trim technician will ensure the inside of the vehicle is as immaculate as the exterior.

The final stage of our preparation is the vehicle detailing we carry out on-site. Our fully qualified valeter, having over 10 years experience, will apply his skills on every car we sell, using only the very best equipment and cleaning products. This ensures that our vehicles are presented in as close to new-condition as possible.

A car is often deemed as the second largest purchase anybody will make and it is our duty to ensure it is in the exact condition you should expect for such a significant purchase. You can be sure, when you collect your vehicle from Joseph Shaw Cars, it is mechanically sound and visually stunning.
