Your Questions Answered
Absolutely. In fact many of our customers choose to part exchange their current vehicle for a newer or larger model. You’ll find our prices extremely competitive and whilst we cannot guarantee a price given online, we are happy to offer a preliminary valuation before you visit us.
Simply tell us the full make, model, registration condition and mileage of your vehicle in our online form and we’ll get straight back to you.
Whilst everyone’s financial status is different, Charters Reading (through our many contacts in the industry) are able to assist those who have had difficulties in the past getting credit. We are happy to advise you on the best course of action. We are happy to give you an assessment before we submit a full credit application (just contact us here).
To save time and as a convenience to you, we offer online car financing here. Please be aware that when applying for finance online, you are giving us permission to apply for credit on your behalf.
Yes. We have ensured that Charters Reading provides a safe environment for our customers. The “green lock” in the address bar of your browser indicates that we are protected by rock-solid SSL security.

Hire Purchase allows you to pay for your vehicle over a set period (anything from 24 to 60 months). Place your deposit (which is often optional), and spread the remainder over the agreed time.
Unlike Personal Contract Purchase (PCP), Hire Purchase agreements are for complete ownership of the vehicle and are unrestricted on mileage. Once your contract is complete, you fully own the vehicle with nothing more to pay.
PCP stands for Personal Contract Purchase and it is a popular car finance scheme that allows drivers to pay for a vehicle over a set period of time. Unlike a Hire Purchase agreement, PCP offsets the guaranteed future value of the vehicle you are financing.
For clarification see this example:
- Car price: £10000
- Deposit: £1000
- Guaranteed Future Value: £5000
- Amount financed: £4000
On the above example (and for simplicity a 0% finance offer), you would pay £111 per month (£4000/36). This excludes any administration costs. However you can see how financing a vehicle on PCP allows you to keep the monthly expenditure down. Using this example (with the same deposit) a hire purchase agreement would cost you £250 per month.
PCP allows you to choose at the end of your contract whether you keep your car (by paying or financing the final payment) or hand it back in good condition with nothing more to pay.
Please Note: Unlike Hire Purchase, Personal Contract Purchase agreements are based upon an agreed annual mileage allowance (such as 6,000 miles per annum). This is to guarantee the future value of your vehicle and to keep the monthly payments down. If you are likely to travel further than the agreed mileage then let us know and we will customise your quotation to suit.
Whilst we always try to accurately judge your realistic mileage, you may find that you are likely to exceed this figure. You will be charged on a pence per mile basis (at the end of your contract). This figure is extremely reasonable, is different from vehicle to vehicle and can be found on your personal quote. Ask us for more information on this.
Charters has been the premier place for Peugeot in Reading and whilst we do not sell new Peugeots directly, we can still assist you thanks to our official dealership based in Aldershot. Come and have a chat with us at Reading and we’ll get you on the road in no time.
Have you considered by a delivery mileage model? We offer a range of nearly new Peugeots with delivery mileages and with thousand’s off the list price. It’s just another thing we cheerfully do.
We are happy to offer Aftersales discounts to Students from the University of Reading . So if you have valid ID from this place of education, bring it along to us and we’ll repair, maintain or MOT your car for a discounted price.

Finance on your next vehicle is based upon many factors and sometimes we will require you to have a guarantor / guarantee to countersign your agreement.
A guarantor supports your finance application and promises to continue making payments for the vehicle if the main signatory is unable to.
Younger or newer drivers are often asked for a guarantor as several finance companies seek assurance that their agreement is covered. Many of our customers choose close friends or family to countersign their agreement.
Whilst we are an authorised Peugeot repair centre, we are extremely happy to apply our professional expertise to all makes and models. In fact we have been working as your local friendly garage for years.
Having your car maintained, serviced or repaired at Charters Reading means you’ll benefit from the same impressive customer service as our Peugeot customers. We’ll also be happy to offer free collection and delivery to our dealership so you never have to worry about getting here.
EDT stands for Engine Decontamination Treatment and it’s a revolutionary procedure we offer to bring back the power, economy and life of your car. If your vehicle is over 3 years old and is feeling a little out of sorts, EDT can really help you on your way.
The EDT system fully flushes the build-up of sludge from your engine, leaving it clean for the internal parts to work smoothly. It can drastically reduce the exhaust emissions, increase your MPG and prolongs the engine’s life. If you love your car and wish it drive as good as new, choose EDT.
Whilst we tend to offer this to customers already having a service (at an extra charge of £99 +VAT), we are also able to provide this as a standalone procedure (for £149 +VAT).
