Q: How do I use the search tool?

A: There are 2 different ways to use the search tool.

1. Broad Search

Click the "display results" button and Visitcars will display all available cars for sale nationwide.

2. Refined Search

Click on a relevant field with regards to the car you are looking for and select the relevant option from the drop down menu. For example, if you want to search by car make, click on the "Any make" field and select a make from the drop down list provided (e.g Alfa Romeo).

To Refine Your Search Further

Click on as many of the fields as you want, selecting the relevant options from each drop down menu. This will narrow your search down to just cars that fit your criteria.
