Cargiant make buying a car a pleasant process. You can browse around hundreds of cars, sectioned according to their make, to find what you're looking for. Once you find a car you like, assistants are easy to come by and will give you the keys so you can have a proper look around the car at your own pace. For a quote for part exchange, you simply drive over to the part exchange centre where someone has a quick look and makes an offer. All offers and car prices are final and Cargiant has a strict no-haggling policy which makes the process quick and easy. If you're planning on leaving with your new car on the same day, allow about three hours for the pre-sale check that Cargiant will do on your new car.
Cargiant is nothing like I imagined it would be... but I had a very overactive imagination as an 8 year-old driving past every weekend. Where are the giant turntables showcasing the cars that people selected? Where are the conveyor belts bringing cars to you while you sit on a sofa and have a cup of tea? I guess this is why we all resort to Internet shopping!
Crazy imaginations aside, Cargiant stocks over 5000 cars! I have never seen so many cars in one place in my life! It's very well organised by manufacturers and they have a map at the entrance to help you along. If you have a set budget in mind, then you might want to check their website before you go (which we didn't) as they seem to be more expensive than other dealers (but they definitely have variety of 2nd hand cars). We didn't get anything because all the cars (apart from 6 or so) were outside of our budget - crazy!
It's also not a very easy place to get to if you don't have a car! (Imagine that, people without a car, wanting to buy a car... the audacity of it!) The closest tube station is Willesdon Junction, and then it's about a 15 minute walk to the showroom.
Overall, it's a good place to go to browse for a good car. They all seem to be in pretty good condition, at least from the outside (I didn't actually test drive any of the cars). I would definitely recommend looking on the website first if you have something specific in mind.
