Buying A Car During Lockdown

With car dealerships deemed non-essential retail and closed during the current level 5 Covid-19 restrictions in Ireland, you might be wondering what does this mean if I want, or need, to buy a new or used car? Great news, SpiritMotorgroup.ie has made the car buying process simple and straightforward to carry out. Meaning you can get the keys to your car even faster than ever before.

Getting Started

Although all car dealerships must remain closed to the public during this lockdown, you can still make online, phone and email enquiries about a vehicle you might be interested in purchasing.

Unfortunately, you can’t currently book a test drive but there are a number of ways that you can find out all that you might need to know about the car.

All of which you can do from the comfort of your home or on the go on your smartphone. Meaning getting behind the wheel of a car has never been easier.

Is it safe to buy?

There are strict guidelines for dealerships like ourselves on how to deal with the threat of Covid-19 in Ireland. Rest assured all cars get thoroughly cleaned prior to delivery or collection. The same applies to any vehicles getting serviced in any of our Spirit Motor Group locations.

Our team wear protective face shields, disposable gloves and use disposable seat covers and steering wheel covers when delivering vehicles.

For a full breakdown of the Covid-19 guidelines that we follow for each vehicle please visit here.

Viewing the vehicle.

Right now you aren’t able to visit our showrooms, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t learn everything that you need about one of our vehicles from the comfort of your home. We know that you might like to carry out some research in advance of enquiring about a vehicle which is why we’ve introduced a number of features, as part of our digital showroom at Spiritmotorgroup.ie, to help you be as informed as possible before you decide to buy.

Vehicle pictures

All used vehicles listed on our website feature interior and exterior images showing the main features of the specific vehicle. If a vehicle has just arrived into our dealership and it is of interest to you all you need to do is contact the team to get a first look at it.  ​​

Vehicle video

Want to learn even more about the vehicle? Click on the video tab on a used vehicle listing to see a quick in-depth overview.​

Individual bespoke video

If you’ve looked at the car and have some questions, our team can create a bespoke video for you with a more detailed presentation of the car so you can get all the information you need.  

Virtual appointment

If you have some further questions about a vehicle, or if you want to discuss a car in more detail, you talk to us directly with a Virtual appointment.  This is also a great way for you to see the car close up and to ask questions that you might normally ask when visiting the showroom.

How To Secure The Used Car

You have found a used car that you love and you want to make sure that you don’t miss out on it. Many dealers allow you to reserve the vehicle for either delivery or collection. Spiritmotorgroup.ie allows you to reserve a used vehicle online, using Stripe payment, for €99 which is fully refundable if you decide not to go ahead with the purchase. Our website also supports Apple Pay and Google Pay which allows you to pay easily and securely using your smartphone.

Want to see what your finance repayments might be on the vehicle? Our website allows you to tailor a finance quote to suit your individual needs. You can choose to calculate the potential payments via the length of the term, your potential repayments or what you wish to put down as a deposit. The flexible calculator will give you a quick representative breakdown quote that will allow you to make a more informed decision.

Click & Deliver

All Spirit Motor Group dealerships have introduced FREE nationwide Click and Deliver services. This FREE service allows you to get your vehicle delivered to your front door.

If you have a trade-in our team will be able to collect that also. Making your whole experience seamless.
