R Symons Ltd

R Symons Ltd

"I am unlike almost any other vehicle trader you are likely to meet. I set up my business because I am a true car enthusiast and I love buying and selling great cars and helping people find the right car for them. Initially as a young lad I completed a degree in design but my ambitions to become a car designer were hard to fulfil. Over time the path of life lead me into the world of software where I was a UK director for an excellent company, but I had to step down from this job to commit time for family life upon the arrival of our daughter 2009. It was then in 2010 that I basically converted a hobby into a living and I’ve been playing with cars full time ever since! More recently I’ve become a real fan of electric cars and have been running my own 100% electric car since 2015. Yes… a ‘petrol head’ owning an electric car..! It is possible, and they’re great! We need to change, climate change is real, and this is a really positive step forward for sustainable personal transport. I’ll happily talk at length to any sceptics on the matter and I’m sure I’ll help convince you it’s a great way forward. With any car I sell or any advice I give, I pride myself on being honest, transparent and refreshingly different from your stereotypical ‘car dealer’. You will receive a friendly, personal, helpful and professional service. Even if you just want to call and chat about cars or ask for some advice - no problem!"

  • An amazing experience

    By Trevor A 1 Day ago | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    A very professional dealer. Lots of advice and helpful hints on making such a big purchase. Great help over the phone too.

  • How buying and trading in should be.

    By Robert G 2 Days ago | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    I saw the car I wanted in their inventory at a reasonable price, got a price for my trade in over the phone and got paid that after inspection. Very pleasant staff, a no hassle experience.

  • Better service here than at Tesla, no really.

    By Ian K 3 Days ago | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    There really is no better place to buy a Tesla than at R Symons. This has to be the largest actual collection of Teslas in one place in the UK. No hard sell (no joke), factual information with a view of nothing is to much trouble for them, even picked me and my family up from the train station, yeah I know, day out but the wife gets involved when spending this sort of money. This is how Tesla should be selling second hand cars (those of you who have ever tried to buy a second hand car from Tesla will know what I mean). I can't rate these guys enough.

  • Wonderful, bought a great Tesla from here

  • We felt trust.

    By Robert A 4 Days ago | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    R Symons and his staff are very good, no hard selling, they simply answer your questions honestly. We looked at a car listed for sale, had a test drive, and agreed to buy it there and then. No regrets, and they gave us continuing support and advice, it’s our first electric car.
