Barretts 14 Day Money Back Guarantee offers you complete peace of mind when purchasing your next used vehicle.

We want to ensure all our customer can buy with confidence, that's why whether you are collecting from one of our dealerships or having your vehicle delivered directly to your home, Barretts can guarantee the highest quality of all our used vehicles thanks to our thorough preparation process. However, if you decide the vehicle is not right for you, you can return it and get your money back within the first 14 days after purchase. There’s no hassle however we will need to confirm the following details:

  • You haven’t driven any more than 250 miles within the first 14 days after purchase
  • You return the vehicle to the dealership you originally purchased it from
  • You fulfil all your legal responsibilities as the owner of the vehicle - including taxes, insurance and paying any fines you incur whilst driving it
  • You keep the vehicle in the same condition as it was when you picked it up. Fair wear and tear is accepted, but we will charge for any new damage caused whilst the vehicle is in your care
  • You return the vehicle with the V5C logbook document, all keys, books (such as manuals and service books) and accessories (like floor mats and SD cards) that were supplied with it
