On-premises (In-store) Purchase Returns
After 1st October 2015, if a customer who has not bought online has a legally justifiable and Allen Ford (UK) Limited-approved reason for rejecting their new vehicle within the first 30 days of ownership, a refund will be given without undue delay. Allen Ford (UK) Limited will action any agreed refund once the customer is able to recover the V5C registration certificate (log book) from the DVLA and can then hand it over to Allen Ford (UK) Limited.
Off-premises (Online) Purchase Returns
In other cases (e.g. where the consumer has changed their mind), there is normally no automatic right to return goods. An exception to this rule includes goods sold over the Internet (distance selling).
While we always aim to make sure you are fully satisfied and happy with any vehicle you have bought from us online, there may be a change of mind or circumstances that mean you would like to exercise your right to return. We make this as easy and hassle-free as we possibly can for you.
This Right to Return Policy is offered in addition to your legal rights.
Whether you use Click & Collect to have a vehicle you have bought online handed over at one of our dealerships or you have it delivered to your door, we are confident you will be happy with the quality of all our models. However, you can decide to return a vehicle and get your money back within the first 14 days after collection. You must not use the vehicle after you have told us that you are cancelling the agreement.

2.2 If the Vehicle is purchased at a distance within the meaning of The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, the Customer may within 14 days of Delivery cancel the contract and require the Supplying Dealership to refund the purchase Price. In this instance, the customer must keep the Vehicle in a reasonable condition and return the Vehicle or make it available for collection, pay the company’s reasonable costs of collection, where the Vehicle odometer records more than 250 miles travelled from the odometer reading at Delivery (as shown on the Invoice) the sum of £1 per mile over 250 miles, and the reasonable costs of any rectification works for damage caused to the Vehicle whilst in the Customer’s possession.
2.3 To be eligible for the 14-day Money-back Guarantee, the Vehicle must:

The refund shall be paid in pounds sterling (£) via an electronic transfer to the Customer’s designated bank account or payment card from which the Price was paid.

In such circumstances, the Supplying Dealership shall reimburse the amount allowed for the part-exchange vehicle as set out on the Vehicle invoice net of the amount of any finance settlement paid by the Supplying Dealership.
