Westdown Trading

"Westdown Trading are based only two minutes from junction 2 off the M27 and only a short drive from Southampton or Bournemouth airports and Totton and Romsey train stations. Much of our business comes from the surrounding areas of Salisbury, Romsey, Southampton, Winchester, Eastleigh, Portsmouth and Bournemouth although we do supply many vehicles nationwide. The company was established in 2016 by Philip and Tom Appleby following the sale of their previous dealership in Southampton which had been in existence since 1981. Tom has been in the motor trade since 1961 and Philip since 1996 meaning we have over 70 years combined motor trade experience! All of our stock is carefully inspected prior to purchase and independently prepared before delivery. We stand by all of our cars and would be happy to sell any one of them to friends or family as we often do. All cars are supplied with a comprehensive Auto Protect warranty where applicable and are HPI checked for peace of mind. We also offer part exchange facilities to make the purchase of your new car as easy as possible. As well as selling from stock we are always actively buying vehicles to client’s exact requirements so please if you do not see the car you are looking for let us know and we will do the hard work for you. Please feel free to enquire any time and rest assured you will be met with a friendly, relaxed, no pressure environment in which to purchase your next car."

    Good to meet you Giles. Always nice to do business with someone recommended from an existing client. Thanks very much for the easy sale and we hope your daughter is thrilled with her new Corsa. Best regards and see you again soon, Philip & Tom.

  • Very happy customer

    By Michelle Y 20 Days ago | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    Well, what can I say - I'd not planned to buy this particular car (and wasn't even going to look at it, as it was over my budget) but as soon as I saw it, I knew that it was a very good example of what I'd been looking for. Tom and Phillip clearly know their business and their cars very well and customer service is exemplary. As we were local, they were kind enough to open up on a Bank Holiday weekend (Sunday) so that we could collect the car, after we'd decided to buy it only the morning before. And after having experienced some car sales people, I have to say how nice it was to feel confident in my purchase. It's good to know that there are genuine people who clearly take pride in and enjoy what they do - no hard sell needed when your service and cars speak for themselves. Highly recommended.

  • Smooth transaction!

    By Heather B on 18 May | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    We were welcomed by the joint owner who gave us the complete run down on the car we were after. The car was superbly presented and we arranged to buy it. Three days later we collected our car and even the small chip to the windscreen had been repaired. We were very happy with the service we received during this transaction and would not hesitate to return.

    No problem at all Heather. I hope you had a pleasant drive home in your new A-Class. I know it had been quite a search looking for the right car, nine months I think you said?! Glad to have resolved your quest and hope to see you again soon. Thanks and regards, Philip.

    Westdown Trading were very helpful throughout the purchase process, no pushy sales and very good part exchange deal given. I would be pleased to recommend Westdown Trading for purchasing a second hand vehicle.
