(PRWEB UK) 7 November 2012
With household budgets squeezed, consumers are looking for new ways to cover essential household costs. Identifying that habits are changing, and that many of their customers are looking for their first new vehicle since the current recession began, online vehicle deal finder http://www.carpress.co.uk/welcome has re-launched with an expanded car finance offering.
In addition to expanding its range of car leasing deals, Car Press is also now offering car contract purchase and car finance options. Rather than demanding a large upfront payment, these alternative finance options allow for smaller monthly payments. The new Car Press website allows customers to compare the monthly cost of these options side by side, for each model and model variant they are considering. This empowers customers to find the best possible deals and the packages that best suit their needs, including end of contract purchase options and packages that include extras like road tax and breakdown recovery.
“Consumers are used to having a wide choice in terms of options and specifications, but when it comes to actually paying for our cars we’re rarely presented with a range of compelling options” said Donna Kelly, marketing and website editor at Car Press. “By placing new emphasis on car leasing, finance and contract purchase, as a means of acquiring a vehicle, we’re making it easier for consumers to afford the car and the features they need. We believe that by changing how customers pay, they shouldn't have to change what they pay for.”
The new website offers thousands of new cars: users can conduct a search via car type, manufacturer and monthly price, to be presented with a broad range of options to choose from. Car Press lists cars from 36 manufacturers, offering everything from the smallest city cars to people carriers and convertibles. Whether your budget starts at £150 a month, or twenty times that, you can find a deal that saves you real money.
Speaking about the technical side of the redesign, Deborah Kaye, client delivery manager on the project, explained: “Car Press was keen that the new design would stay true to the branding of their existing site, whilst also offering a more modern look and feel. The brief was to make the search options as easy to use as possible and present the cost comparison charts in a clear and concise format”.
In addition to providing access to the best car finance deals in the UK, Car Press will continue to offer a look at the motor market via its popular motoring news section, which offers featured articles, upcoming vehicle news and featured deals. The site also explains the distinction between car leasing, contract purchasing and car finance deals and the benefits packaged with them.
Car Press is a trading name of Nationwide Vehicle Contracts, a Stockport-based company who have established themselves as one of the UK’s leading car leasing providers in the last decade. Car Press vehicles are sourced directly from the manufacturer’s franchised dealer network and in partnership with trusted vehicle management banking groups like ALD, Arval and Network Vehicles Limited. Customers can opt for leasing, contract purchasing and finance deals on 24, 36 and 48 month terms. Flexible initial payments and annual mileage expectations (the latter on leasing and contract purchasing deals only) are available to fine tune your deal.
