Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Halit Demirtas. I am the owner and managing director of the individual enterprise H&G Automobile.

The name Demirtas has stood for successful car sales for 40 years. I have continued this tradition since I was 18. During my studies at Bielefeld University I gained my first experience as a manager of a car dealership. Since 2012 I have managed my own company – H&G Automobile.

H&G Automobile Pavilion - Used Car Showroom

At my pavilion you will mainly find (re-)imported new cars with an EU-wide factory warranty and also carefully selected and well-maintained used cars. All my vehicles meet my high quality standards. My customer service follows my principle of transparency, so that I inform you about all process steps during the purchase or sale. Convince yourself of the quality of my vehicles as well as my services and visit me in my H&G Automobile Pavilion in Bielefeld.

Transparent sale of vehicles

What does „transparent“ mean to me?

  • Knowledge of every detail:
    I inform you about every detail of the vehicle history so that no questions remain unanswered and you feel well informed
  • Completeness of documentation:
    Whether new or used, you will receive complete and original documentation so that you are guaranteed to register your vehicle and trace its history
  • Completely worry-free:
    Are you worried about buying a (re-)imported vehicle or have you had a bad experience buying a used car? Talk to me openly about this and share your concerns with me. I am sure we will find a solution.

My new cars from (re-)import

What does „transparent“ mean to me?

  • Assurance of new car condition:
    My new cars are new vehicles that have been re-imported or imported from abroad. They can tell that they are new by several features. In addition, the condition of the new car is documented and guaranteed in writing in the purchase contract.
  • New vehicles ready for registration:
    All new cars have an EC type approval number and can therefore be registered without any problems or conversions. For this, I will of course issue you with a registration guarantee!
  • EU-weit gültige Werksgarantie:
    The statutory factory warranty also applies to (re-)imported new cars. The duration of this factory warranty is documented and guaranteed in writing in the purchase contract. So if there are any problems or defects within the warranty period, you are covered in the best possible way.
  • German vehicle documents:
    All documents are complete and checked. You will receive the German vehicle documents (Fahrzeugschein Part I and Part II) when you register your new car.
  • No additional costs:
    Everything is already included in my prices. No hidden additional costs, customs clearance costs or unforeseeable follow-up costs.
  • Cars with benefits:
    For many, buying a car is associated with stress. If you now read "(re-)imported", alarm bells may start to ring. So why buy a (re-)imported car? The decisive factor here is the price advantage. You get a completely new vehicle at much more favourable conditions. This discount, compared to other new cars, also has a positive effect on future value stability.

Tips for Buyer

What you should consider when buying a (re-)imported vehicle:

  1. Completeness of vehicle documents:
    It is important that you are given all the documents of the vehicle before payment. In some cases, these are not in German. You will receive the German documents (Fahrzeugschein Part I and Part II) when you register the new vehicle.
  2. Registration warranty:
    A serious seller will not ask you to pay until you have registered the vehicle. So do not pay for your vehicle until you have been able to register it without any problems.
  3. Check the condition of the new car
    Look closely at the vehicle and check for any signs of wear and tear on the outside or inside. The manufacturer's date and the condition of the tyres also provide conclusions about the condition of the new car. Alternatively, you can also check the date of manufacture of the windows. You should also have the condition of the new car documented in writing in the purchase contract and thus guaranteed.

What should you take into consideration when buying a used car from a private party?

  1. Never buy a car from someone who has no identification!
    In the event that discrepancies or serious defects are discovered on the car, the seller's personal information ensures that you can contact them at a later date (e.g. with questions about the vehicle, or in the event of a legal dispute).
  2. Avoid purchasing transactions at motorway service areas, unfamiliar backyards or alleys or similar!
    This type of method usually conceals an attempted fraud (manipulations to the mileage on the odometer, to accident damage, engine/transmission damage or similar).
  3. Inspect the vehicle thoroughly!
    Observe the condition of the paint, the gap widths as well as the usual wear parts found in the interior, such as steering wheel and gearshift lever. Strong signs of scuffing and fading are often indicators of heavier wear and tear and higher mileage.

    Colour deviations in the paint and considerably different gap widths on doors are almost certainly evidence of an accident. Im In case of doubt you should have the vehicle inspected at a DEKRA motor vehicle inspection station.
  4. Do not purchase a vehicle without an extensive test drive!
    Run the engine until it is warm and test the power at full throttle and in kick-down position. After warming up the vehicle, take a closer look under the bonnet. On engines with high mileage a slight oil loss, so-called sweating, is normal. Considerable traces of oil on the engine or beneath the vehicle should be viewed critically. These are signs of a leak on the engine or transmission.
  5. Examine the service record and all other car documents thoroughly!
    If there are discrepancies in the documents, ask the seller to explain why. Example: the car was driven 10,000 km every year, but last year only 1,000 km – why such a large difference?
