Long time reader, first time poster.
I'm 3 years into a 4 year PCP, this being the first time I've had a PCP deal or indeed a new car!
Love our T-Roc SE 1.0, my intention is to get another T-Roc (the current "Active" trim 1.5 DSG ticks all the boxes for us).
We bought from West London VW, and I would be happy to go back to them again.
I'm hoping you experienced folk can explain to me, a PCP newbie, what I should be doing in the next 12 months leading up to giving the car back?
- Should I be planning to approach the dealer several months early to order my new T-Roc, so that at the end I drive there in our current T-Roc, and drive home in the new one? Or will there inevitably be a gap?
- We have done far less miles than the terms of our PCP deal (8k per year, we'll likely have done half that) - is there a reliable way for me to calculate our positive equity without relying on the dealer valuation? Should I concern myself with this?
- Would they say "so long as you return the car at or under X miles on the clock, we'll guarantee this part exchange price"?
