Advertisement For Good Wood 2020 was launched in Drogheda at the end of July, and set out on a journey to take the hassle out of finding a used car locally.

Like all good ideas the thinking behind is simple– get all the local motor dealers selling their used cars in one place where buyers can look around to see what’s available at the price to suit their budget, apply for the finance and get a response within a few hours. All without leaving home!

You’ll obviously want to test drive the car before you close the deal and you can’t do that online but, even if you narrow the search down to one or two vehicles you’ve saved yourself a ton of time and you can rest assured that all of the dealers on are reputable and members of SIMI or franchised dealers.

Also, new dealers and vehicles are being added to the platform as the site is being rolled out.

Petrol heads will spend many enjoyable hours, returning time and again to looking out for that special bargain but the driver who is looking for something reliable to get to work in or bring the kids to school will also find what they are looking for.

That’s because a car may be seen by many as a means from getting to where they want to go but everyone also wants to experience a bit of that undefinable “WOW” factor.

You can rest assured that all of the cars on have passed the most stringent of tests and are presented in peak condition.
