Buying an approved used vehicle from BMW is one of the best options as motorists get all the advantages with none of the risk.

All approved used vehicles sold by BMW are done so with a transparent vehicle history. Customers will receive a complete vehicle and service history including the history of accidents and repairs, if any, for complete peace of mind,” explains Jakobus Bisschoff, pre-owned sales manager at BMW Vereeniging.

“The quality of all approved used vehicles sold by BMW is guaranteed by our own stringent criteria. Every approved used BMW undergoes rigorous vehicle checks to ensure that it complies with specific standards,” adds Bisschoff.

“Vehicles sold under the BMW approved used vehicles banner include BMW vehicles that are two to three years old and are still covered by Motorplan. These vehicles are thoroughly inspected and prepared, with any damage repaired to ensure that motorists drive off in a vehicle that is as good as new, and which represents excellent value for money,” says Bisschoff.

All approved used BMWs are also sold with the balance of their BMW Motorplan in place, which will include at least one year/25 000km of servicing peace of mind as well as roadside assistance courtesy of BMW on Call for as long as the Motorplan is valid.

Buying a pre-owned vehicle from the BMW approved used programme ensures peace of mind that the vehicle is in an excellent condition along with the backing of a large OEM such as BMW.

“Furthermore, BMW dealerships will offer financing options through all banks or through BMW Finance and we can tailor a solution for a customer with various repayment periods and residual values to ensure that they get a deal that suits their pocket and budget,” says Bisschoff.

As part of the sales process BMW dealerships will also give motorists a guaranteed market related trade-in offer on their current vehicle, which simplifies the entire transaction considerably.

“We will trade in any vehicle and then either resell it on our own floor or if the vehicle doesn't meet our resale criteria, we will pass it on to one of our trading partners. This ensures that we can get our customer the best deal on their previous vehicle, despite the competitive environment,” says Bisschoff.

“Being part of a big group like Sovereign BMW and Motus offers numerous advantages including the fact that we can source specific vehicles from other dealers in the group. This makes it easier to get the right vehicle for our customers. Customers can feel comfortable discussing their needs with us and we will always be transparent and try source the vehicle that best suits those needs,” concludes Bisschoff.
