Advantages Big Savings, Professional and Helpful Service
Disadvantages None really
So when my company decided it was no longer going to give me a company car I was faced with the prospect of taking my allowance and buying my own. I wanted to get a good car that would last and as I had been well impressed by driving one before I decided to go for a Saab.At first I looked through all the various options for buying and decided to also have a look at the option of importing. However, initially I did not take the importing option seriously as the whole idea scared me a little.
Whilst browsing this site it became clear that cars could be obtained for significantly less than the UK price. The site has a number of examples, deals of the month etc, showing great reductions.So I clicked on the ‘online quote’ link to see exactly what I could get only to get a page that said “We are Sorry but the 'Online Quotation' system is currently offline for maintenance, please try again later, or alternatively use our contact page to get in touch with us”. Undeterred I went on to request a quote by email but I would mention that at the time of writing, 6 months after my initial enquiries, the online quote facility is still not available.
That said the site as a whole is very helpful and provides a lot of detail about the ordering and delivery process.What I was looking for at the time was a fairly standard Saab 9-5 Vector Estate but the price I had been given by dealers etc started at £23,000 for the most basic model which was a bit more than I wanted to pay. But just out of interest I asked for a quote on the top of the range 9-5 Aero Estate which is over £31,000 on the road in the UK. The reply I received indicated that I could get this car factory built in Sweden and shipped to me for approximately the same price as the basic model I had been looking at – a massive saving of over £7000!
Now this got me interested. Could I really have a dream car for the price I was going to pay for a standard model? I suspected that there were many catches to this approach and came up with a stream of questions which I fired back at “AutoSource”. I will paraphrase my questions and the answers given below.
