jak mogę ci pomóc? Ian proves that language needn't be a barrier

Selling cars can be very demanding at the best of times, and it's vital that everything is explained clearly and precisely, but Sales Team Member Ian Edwards recently faced a very particular challenge - a prospective customer who couldn't speak English. Now, we often battle through this situation with a combination of pointing at the screen, the odd word of english or a friend who can help translate Wrexhamese, but in this case Ian resorted to an inventive use of technology - Google Translate. With the client at his desk and very keen on a nearly-new Insignia, Ian fired up Google Translate on his mobile, turned his PC's keyboard round and via the miracle of modern technology proceeded to have a full and very detailed conversation, with the customer typing his questions in Polish, Ian reading the translated answers, then doing the reverse on his mobile - It's without doubt the longest conversation Ian has ever had with a customer without saying a word!

Result: a sold car, and as you can see from the AutoTrader review, we have one very happy customer!

Ian, we salute you and present you the inaugural 'Thinking Outside The Box' award.

Dobra robota.

Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Dickens of Wrexham Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders. We are a credit broker and not a lender. We can introduce you to a limited number of lenders and their finance products. We are not an independent financial advisor and we act as their agent for this introduction. We may advise you on the products, subject to your personal circumstances, though you are not obliged to take our advice or recommendation. We do not charge you a fee for our services. Whichever lender we introduce you to, we will typically receive commission from them (either a fixed fee or a fixed percentage of the amount you borrow). For your reassurance, all of the lenders we work with could pay commission at different rates, but the commission we receive does not influence the interest rate you will pay. Our aim is to secure finance for you at the lowest interest rate you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
