Buying with us
- The vehicle will only be released once full cleared funds have been received by The Auto Lounge Ltd.

- The holding deposit will be held against the vehicle’s full price & as a legal undertaking by the purchaser to complete the sale with full payment within 7 days. Should that undertaking fail, The Auto Lounge Ltd view the contract as breached and can retain the part payment. This term does not apply where the consumer has the statutory right of a cooling off period.
- All ‘distance sale’ consumer purchases have a 14-day cooling off period in which the client has the legal right to inform us if they no longer wish to keep the vehicle. Where a client has this right, we will issue them with the required information prior to completion of the contract.
- The Auto Lounge retains the right to deduct an amount for use of the vehicle and for any reduction in value due to damage to the vehicle.
