Our Heart - Our Team

Our team is everything, we are Wholesale Cars Direct. The well being of our team is so important. Our standards are so high, we believe in perfection, 100%, only because that’s our standard. So to balance this out we have such facilities as our gym memberships being paid for by the company. Life coaches and counsellors being paid for by the company. We also receive free extramural education no matter what the cost. This culminates to covering our health, mental wellness and an educated or easier path for those that want to extend their career in any way. All team members also get their fuel cost covered to and from work, full uniform from shoes to pants to jackets paid for. Our pay goes to our families, not work related costs.

I work as an agent for the finance companies, this means that I have a range of options available when it comes to tailoring or meeting your needs. Dealing with only one finance company tends to restrict choice and sometimes leads to having to rely on their insurance packages and rates. This is one of the key reasons in dealing with an agent, as finding a deal and having the desire to secure you the best rate available is what I do best.

I am an expert in the field- My aim is to use my experience to insure you have an answer, or at the very least a way forward when financing with Wholesale Cars Direct. With many products on the market, I see my job as purely information based… allowing you to choose the best option that works for you, rather being sold to. Flexibility, short or long term, deposit or no deposit… I facilitate your choice for you and will have you driving away in your vehicle in no time.

If you would like a pre-approval or get a general understanding of the process please call me on 0800 22 44 02 extension 2, or email me at .

From mechanical, electric and electronic extended warranties, to interior or exterior paint/fabric and leather protection, we can facilitate anything.

Be it standard vehicle electrics, late model vehicle electronics, we believe sincerely customers need protection, as there isn’t many cheap bills when it comes to vehicles if something goes wrong.

Our service is impeccable but as time goes by, this is where extended warranties come into their own. The sanity of knowing you are covered by an extended warranty, is something we see many customers appreciate.

To learn more about protecting your investment Scotty is the specialist in this field.

We can sell, finance, trade and deliver cars to anywhere

We aim to cater to the most discerning purchaser.
We do not have disappointed customers, but if we did,
you could trust WCD to put right very quick.
This is proven.
