3) ABOUT BROADSPEED
First established in 1962, launched online in 1995. Broadspeed was a successful tuning specialist and racing team under the direction of Ralph Broad between 1962 and 1982. The company name and trademarks were purchased by Simon Empson (the current MD) who has run the company since 1994. You can reach Simon directly on (0207) 175 0515.
4) OBLIGATION AND COMMITMENT
Our web site is FREE to use - but we take it that you are authorising us to provide you with informal price information, without obligation’ on any party. Search and price quotes are FREE. However, we charge you to order a vehicle from a dealer we introduce. You should not rely on any price information until it has been confirmed by the dealer we introduce.
5) WHAT YOU PAY US
NOTHING - unless you proceed and place an order with the dealer we introduce. Once you tell us to proceed, we confirm your price in writing then introduce you to our cheapest supplier in your region. Our Introduction Fee is £199 inc VAT.
6) WHEN YOU PAY US
It's FREE - unless you proceed with dealer introduction and place an order. We take a card number at the point of introduction - but only charge you £199 once the dealer’s offer and order form is accepted). In practice, we charge our fee after three working days - unless you request additional time to complete the order process.
7) HOW YOU PAY US
Use any credit or debit card starting with a four or five digit (ie: not Amex or Diners).
8) CIRCUMSTANCES OF REFUND
If you pay us £199, but the order is subsequently cancelled (or doesn't complete), we either: a) introduce additional suppliers - b) refund everything you paid to us, in full.
9) CARS AND PRICES
We list just UK sourced Brand New, Ex-Demo and Approved Used vehicles - all Under Manufacturer’s UK Warranty (No Imports, No Pre-Registered cars). Our prices are normally spot-on accurate; either based on what our customers recently paid - or a recent offer from an established trade supplier. Prices may vary until the order process has been fully completed (with a paid deposit). There are three distinct elements to a completed order: 1) to sign or formally agree the principal supplier's order form (whereafter, their T&Cs apply - replacing our own); 2) to pay an initial agreed deposit; 3) the order is formally accepted, in writing. Only once all three of these elements are completed can your order, specification, availability/ lead time and amount of discount be considered as firm.
10) TIME OR STOCK-LIMITED OFFERS
No price, offer, discount or deal lasts for ever. Stocks run out and time-limited campaigns have expiry dates. Please do not therefore rely solely on a price or deal listed on our website. We strongly advise you phone us to check the latest price - 0207 175 0515. Once you decide to proceed with an order, we’ll confirm the pricel, availability and any conditions that may influence your buying decision in writing.
11) THE PRE-ORDER STAGE
Before you commit, we demonstrate your readiness to proceed with a "Pre-Order" (dealers respond best to the prospect of a certain order). A Pre-Order carries no cost or obligation - it’s just a template leading towards an order. Neither a website quote nor Pre-Order obliges you, us or any supplier to anything at all (see section 12 below).
12) SUPPLIER'S T&Cs
Normally, the principal supplier (whether dealer/ finance/ other company) provides you with an Official Order Form (unless Broadspeed Ltd is acting as the supplier - see section 14 below for details of how and when this happens). Once you receive, approve and return an order form, these T&Cs are immediately replaced by the principal supplier's.
13) MAIN DEALER PAYMENTS
Normally, you pay the principal supplier, direct. Some dealers insist we obtain a card number and permission to charge an agreed sum (typically £500-£1000) to initiate an order process. This demonstrates your readiness to proceed (dealers only fully discount when they are certain an order is firm). In this instance, we always email in advance confirming who is charging you, how much and when - then wait for your agreement to proceed.
14) MAIN DEALER INVOICE
For the vast majority of orders, the principal supplier (ie Main Dealer) invoices you - once the vehicle arrives (and you pay them direct); but under certain circumstance (see section 15 below), we may issue the order and final invoice ourselves. In this case you would buy from (and pay) Broadspeed Ltd (not the Main Dealer). There’s no risk - please search for ‘Section 75’ and read how a small credit card deposit protects you.
15) BROADSPEED INVOICE/ PAYMENT
Some manufacturers impose conditions - for example requiring you to use finance for a particular saving. Should you wish to avoid this - or - if you have a Trade-In that a supplier won't quote for), we may offer you a ‘work-around’. You would buy from Broadspeed Ltd (rather than from the Main Dealer). In this instance, the order would still be placed with a UK Franchise Dealer (or the manufacturer itself) and the vehicle would be a FIRST KEEPER (Not Pre-Registered). This ‘work around’ is purely optional - it’s certainly not mandatory. Buying from Broadspeed Ltd does not affect your Warranty or Consumer Rights, in any way.
16) WHAT DEALERS PAY US
Dealers pay us a success fee once the order is complete and deposit paid. Some may ask you to pay this fee directly to us. Should this happen, you won’t pay a penny more than quoted; this modest fee would be knocked off the final price (quoted in writing) then paid direct to us (so the net total payable remains unchanged).
17) THE CARS
New Cars are just that: Brand New and Unused - with a full UK Manufacturer Warranty and Breakdown Package (exactly like you'd buy from your local Main Agent). You'd be the First Registered Keeper (Not the Second Keeper - it’s Not Pre Registered). However, you may also ask us to find a discounted Ex-Demo or Used Car - these too are sourced direct from UK Franchise Dealers (or established Leasing/ Finance/ Vehicle Management companies). All Ex-Demo/ Used Cars are registered in your name immediately (the V5C normally arrives within 7-10 working days - except in March, September and January).
18) SUPPLIER CATEGORIES
Broadspeed deals with Official UK Franchise Dealers and PLC Groups; however, where a lower price is available by placing your order via a Finance or Fleet Company (often with much more discount and/ or fewer T&Cs), we may offer you a choice. In any event, we would only introduce you to an established and reliable business.
19) THE VEHICLE WARRANTY
All New Cars have a normal UK Manufacturer Warranty and full Main Dealer support. Servicing is exactly the same - no matter how the order is placed (just use your local main agent. Any Warranty claim is handled by your Local Main Agent (not the supplier).
20) OUR DEALER RELATIONSHIPS
Broadspeed is wholly independent - and free from any manufacturer influence. We enable UK car dealers to make additional sales by promoting discounts via our web site. Once you're ready to proceed, we check that the advertised offer remains available - and confirm the exact price and any conditions, in writing. If you then wish to go ahead, we introduce the nearest main dealer matching that quoted price.
21) DEALER LOCATIONS
We work with more than 300 Main Agent showrooms across the UK - we have dealers in almost every county. Call us to find out the location of the nearest Broadspeed partner dealer for the make you’re considering.
22) OUR CUSTOMER SERVICE
If you wish to discuss any aspect of our service, you can reach a Director on: (0207) 175 0515 or (07956) 200000.
23) THE ORDER PROCESS
Place as many online enquiries as you like (it's FREE). Just tell us when you're ready to proceed - we'll email a confirmed price and availability (or factory lead time). Once you tell us go ahead (based on that email), we'll send you a confirmed Pre-Order with all the required information (this obliges no one to do or pay anything at all). If you tell us to go ahead, we'll take your card number, but our £199 Fee IS NOT CHARGED until you approve the order and pay the deposit.
For peace of mind, we offer you a money-back guarantee on brand new cars. If something important isn't right at delivery and you reject it - or if your order cannot fulfilled, we refund whatever you paid us - normally within 14 working days** (this offer does not affect your statutory rights in any way). **IMPORTANT CONDITION. It’s VITAL that any problem you find is reported to us BEFORE you leave dealer premises - or - BEFORE the delivery driver leaves your premises (if it’s been delivered). Failure to inform us and agree a course of action before the driver departs invalidates this guarantee completely (but would have no effect on your Statutory Rights). In the very unlikely event such a serious issue, the numbers you must reach us on immediately are: (0207) 175 0515 - or (0207) 175 0077 - or (07956) 200000 - or (07878) 555247
25) WEB SITE USEAGE
Broadspeed Ltd provides functionality so you can view car prices, specifications and listings of vehicles for sale by a registered Motor Dealer. We provide users with reasonable assistance to see the content on this web site, but we do not accept responsibility should you not be able to access it (for any reason). We offer you no guarantee that Web Site access will remain constantly available and uninterrupted, or free of mistakes. Broadspeed Ltd reserves the right to suspend or discontinue the service for any reason, including maintenance. Such suspension or discontinuance is without incurring any liability or obligation to you. We reserve the right to amend the basis upon which you may access www.broadspeed.com or any other Service, without warning. We agree to display a notice on the Web Site informing you of any such amendment. If you continue to use the Site or Service after any such amendment, we will deem your binding acceptance of any such amendment has been granted.
26) DATA USEAGE
We enable Motor Dealers to promote cars and prices on this Web Site. You agree that Broadspeed Ltd is not responsible for verifying the details or condition of any vehicle unless specifically agreed, in writing. Broadspeed Ltd only works with established and registered trade suppliers; however, it remains your responsibility to undertake due diligence before you enter into a Contract with a Motor Dealer for a Vehicle listed on the Web Site. You may contact a Motor Dealer via the Web Site, by phone/email directly with the Motor Dealer which you locate via a telephone number listed on the Web Site. Broadspeed Ltd is not responsible for your communications with a Motor Dealer and you agree that we are not responsible for any failure by a Motor Dealer to respond to you. Once we introduce you to a supplier, it is wholly your own responsibility to review the Motor Dealer's terms and conditions; we are not responsible for sending you those terms and conditions or any failure by you to act upon them.
27) DATA PRIVACY
We do not share or resell personal data or information with any unconnected party. If you place an online enquiry, you will receive one email and one telephone call (or text) from Broadspeed Ltd or its appointed intermediary. We agree to provide access to our Web Site and Services on the basis set out here, but subject to your compliance at all times with the provisions of these Terms and as otherwise specified.
28) YOUR OBLIGATIONS TO US
You agree to act lawfully when accessing the Web Site. You agree not to: use the Web Site or Services in any way that could lead to carrying out of any unlawful activity; email, transmit or otherwise disseminate any content which is obscene, defamatory or in breach of copyright. You agree without limitation to pay us fees if you order, buy, lease or finance any new or used vehicle from or through the dealer or related business we introduce to you. You may be asked to pay us a 'Dealer Success Fee' (which normally is paid to us by the dealer). The Dealer Success Fee is always included within the discount price we quoted and you agreed to (it is not added or extra). If we ask you to pay the Dealer Success Fee to us directly, this sum would be deducted from the discount price you agreed to pay (so the net total would remain exactly the same). Essentially, you'd pay a lower price to the dealer - and the difference to us. This can happen where a dealer cannot pay success fees. You agree to inform us as soon any fees become due to us (ie when you sign an order form and/ or pay any deposit) and pay those fees promptly (ie within three working days).
