Our Brand Our Promise

Used car 123 is set up to be simple and unique in the motor industry. We are conscious of giving an uncomplicated service. This is done with our unique three step process to buying a car.

All used cars are priced to be the best value and cheapest equivalent car on the internet. We will leave you the customer to choose the car and deal you feel is best for you. Not only that but we offer unaccompanied test drive facilities so you can drive your potential new purchase without a car selection advisor present.

Used Car 123 offer one of the widest panel of finance lenders in the market offering credit for excellent ratings to extremely poor. This means no matter what your past present or future we're confident we can get you a great finance rate and affordable payment. If you don't require any borrowing we also offer facilities to pay via cash, credit card, debit card, or bank transfer.

Our team of advisors are not commission based earners making them more willing to advise your next purchase. We also believe that this will make the experience more personal and less pushy.

Remember- Everything can be as easy as 1 2 3
