Used Vehicle Administration Charge

What is it?

The £59 charge is applied to all used car purchases as a means of covering some of the costs of selling a pre-owned car to its new owner.

How is it Applied?

The charge is in addition to the advertised ‘screen price’ of your purchase, applied to the order form at point of sale. This will be alongside other appropriate costs such as Road Fund Licence (RFL) and any additional warranty.

What does it Cover?

The charge provides the following during and after your used car purchase:

  • HPI check – We will carry out a full Higher Purchase Inspection check on your car to ensure that it has no history of total loss or residual interest from finance agencies, as well as ensuring the accuracy of the recorded mileage.
  • VHC – We will carry out a Ford approved Visual Health Check on your new car. This is a comprehensive 106 point check to ensure the Ford standards are upheld and the car is both road safe and road legal.
  • FCA and SAF accredited specialist advice – All our Sales Executives are fully trained and accredited by both the Financial Conduct Authority and Specialist Automotive Finance to help you make an informed choice about the purchase if your car and the ways in which you can protect it.
  • 3 months roadside assistance – We will provide recovery to the nearest Foray Motor Group dealership should you breakdown within the first three months of ownership.
  • First hour diagnostic charge waiver – We will not charge you for the first hour of labour if your car requires a diagnostic investigation on a fault within the first three months of your purchase.
  • The Foray 3 month Pledge – We will cover 100% of the cost of all nonwarranty repairs if reported and corrected in the first month, 50% in the second month and 25% in the third.
