Tony Eade

Andrew really helped me weigh up my options when my car failed its MOT. He offered me a great solution by offering to buy my old car and selling me a younger small car that meets all my needs. Great reliable, economical car and within my budget. Have not looked back and glad I made the move to buy the new car as we have enjoyed a summer with trips away now we have a car that can manage the longer distances.

Aniese Queen

Great Family run business. Andrew was friendly, honest, and helped me throughout the entire car buying process. He resolved any issues I had, the car runs perfectly and have had zero problems since


Andrew and Henry were both so helpful, and not at all pushy. They sorted out our part exchange on our old car, and everything that comes with the new car very quickly. We’ve already decided that we’ll be back to get our next car (hopefully not for some time yet though!) from you because the whole process was so stress free and straightforward. Thank you again! David and Holly.
