Introducing: Test Your Drive

Added: 01 September 2019



At Chris Allen Garages, we're always looking for new ways to make your car buying experience as relaxing, easy, and straightforward as possible. Over the years we have had fantastic feedback from our customers, and now we're excited to take things a step further, by introducing our free Test Your Drive & Handover at Home service.

We pride ourselves on making the car buying experience as simple and stress-free as possible. We understand that sometimes, visiting a showroom isn't convenient for everyone. Whether you're busy and can't find the time, or maybe feel anxious at the thought of coming into a showroom environment, Test Your Drive is the perfect solution for you.

Interested? Simply book an appointment, and one of our friendly Sales Team will bring the car right to your door, which will allow you to test drive it in a familiar setting around your own neighbourhood, and also see just how good the car looks sitting on your driveway! We can explain all the payment and purchase options available, allowing you to order your dream car, right from the comfort of your living room. 

With Handover at Home, you can choose to collect your new car from the showroom or have it delivered directly to your door. Your Salesperson will offer you a familiarisation drive, and demonstrate all the vehicles features to you. It really is as simple as that. 

Test your Drive is available for New FordsNew Mazdas and our large selection of Used Cars.

Getting started with Test Your Drive couldn't be simpler. 

1. Call or email us, and tell us which car you would like to test drive! This can be a brand new Ford or Mazda, or one of our Used Cars.

2. One of our friendly Sales Team will bring the car to you, letting you test drive the car around your neighbourhood, and really get a feel for how the car will suit you.

3. If you're happy with the car, we can take your order right from the comfort of your Living Room. You'll just need to visit us at the showroom to finish the paperwork at a time that works for you, then you will be offered either a Showroom Handover, or a Handover at Home.

4. If you choose a Handover at Home, we'll bring your car right to your door



We're thrilled to be launching this new offering, and believe it's a step in the right direction to enabling more people in the local area to benefit from our unrivalled customer care. Many people we speak to struggle to come into the showroom environment for many different reasons, and we want to make sure we're here for you every step of the way on what is one of the biggest family decisions you'll make.
