Buying A Car During Lockdown


With car dealerships physically closed during the current level 5 Covid-19 restrictions in Ireland, we are only open for online/phone sales. You might be wondering does this affect you if you want, or need, to buy a new or used car? Here at Finlay Motor Group, we have made the car buying process quick and easy!
Getting Started
Although all car dealerships must remain closed to the public during this lockdown, you can still make online, phone and email enquiries about a vehicle you might be interested in purchasing. Unfortunately, you cannot currently book a test drive but there are several ways that you can find out all you need to know about the car, all of which you can do from the comfort of your own home, making getting behind the wheel easier than ever before.
Viewing the vehicle.
Right now, you are not able to visit our showrooms, but that does not mean that you cannot learn everything that you need to know about one of our vehicles from the comfort of your home. We know that you might like to carry out some research in advance of enquiring about a vehicle which is why we have introduced a number of features, as part of our digital showroom at, to help you be as informed as possible before you decide to buy.
Vehicle pictures
All used vehicles listed on our website feature interior and exterior images showing the main features of the vehicle.
Vehicle video
On each vehicle listing, there will be a quick in-depth video giving you an overview of the vehicle.
Individual bespoke video
If you’ve looked at the car and have some questions, our team can create a personalised video for you with a more detailed presentation of the car so you can get all the information you need.  
Virtual appointment
If you have some further questions about a vehicle, or if you want to discuss a car in more detail, you can talk to us directly with a Virtual appointment.  This allows you to see the car and to ask questions that you would normally ask when in our showroom.
How To Secure The Used Car
If you have found a car that you love and you want to make sure that you do not miss out on it. We allow you to reserve a vehicle online by paying a small deposit.
You can also apply for finance on and receive a finance quote that is tailored to your financial needs. You can choose to calculate the potential payments via the length of the term, your potential repayments amount or what you wish to put down as a deposit. The flexible calculator will give you a quick representative breakdown quote that will allow you to make a more informed decision.
Is it safe to buy?
Rest assured all our vehicles are thoroughly cleaned prior to delivery/collection. The same applies to all vehicles which come into Finlay Motor Group for servicing.
Our team all wear PPE and use disposable gloves, seat covers, and steering wheel covers when delivering/collecting vehicles.
Click & Deliver
We have introduced nationwide Click and Deliver services. This service allows you to get your vehicle delivered to your front door. If you have a trade-in our team will be able to collect this while delivering your new car, completing a smooth and easy process for you.
Trading In Your Car
We are always looking to restock our list of used vehicles and give our customers the chance to purchase the right car for their needs. If you have a car that you are looking to sell, our team would love to speak to you and discuss your options.
