COVID-19 is changing how we buy cars with online sales, home delivery and more transparent pricing

At some point, we’ve all felt like a chump in a car dealership showroom, waiting for the salesperson to emerge from a shrouded back office where they presumably spent the last 20 minutes pushing a hard-nosed manager to chip another $100 off the price of that car you’re haggling over.

At the recent Sustrans Volunteers weekend in Aviemore, Dunkeld’s Katharine Melville received one of three Appreciation Awards.
