Motorists in the UK know what they want to buy when they walk into a dealership half of the time, new research has found.

According to British Car Auctions (BCA), 50 per cent of drivers have a specific make and model in mind when they look to purchase.

The body found that picking up the right vehicle was of top priority among motorists, while price and the convenience of the dealer were also cited as of importance.

Road tax and car insurance costs may also be a big part of buying for drivers.

"Consumers placed friendly and professional staff as their fourth most important criteria when choosing a particular dealer," said Tim Naylor, BCA PR manager.

Meanwhile, Classic Restorations Enterprises claims that picking up a vehicle off the internet is a scenario "full of problems just waiting to happen".
