John Danby Car Sales Ltd

Welcome to John Danby Car Sales, we are a small but dedicated family business in Horncastle, Lincolnshire which is made up of John Danby, Jack Danby and Janice Danby. John Danby has been selling cars in and around Horncastle for over 40 years now. Prior to this John was a mechanic at L Turner & Son in Mareham Le Fen which was then part of the Roots Group. Jack Danby has been selling cars for 15 years now, before setting up in business with his father, Jack worked as a mechanic at a local Porsche restoration specialist, Gantspeed Engineering also in Mareham Le Fen. John Danby Car Sales specialize in selling quality low mileage cars ranging from £2000 to £30000. Every car we sell is checked on Experian Autocheck and includes at least 6 months MOT. Many of our cars have the balance of the manufacturer’s warranty, but where this does not apply, we give our own parts and labour warranty which varies depending on the price range of the car. We recognize that currently the majority of our sales come from repeat customers and word of mouth trade, so it is really important to us, to keep selling quality cars and provide the best service we can. Please view our Testimonials page. We do not employ pushy sales staff who are only interested in this month’s sales figures, we try to give the customer genuine advice, and find that generally this means the customer drives away happy and ultimately, we receive more repeat business. All of our cars are fully prepared before they are sold (unless different terms are agreed with the customer at the point of sale). The majority of the valeting is done on site by us, new number plates are usually fitted to the cars and the mechanical/MOT work is carried out in town. There are no Administration fees on our cars, and we sort the tax and the transfer of ownership for the customer on the day of collection. Most of our cars are uploaded on the website fairly fast but it is always worth giving us a call as our stock changes fairly quickly.

  • Outstanding, top quality service.

    By Joanne W on 08 Nov 20 | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    John Danby Car Sales Ltd is an excellent, family run business, providing an outstanding and efficient service to the customer. They offer a good range of top quality cars, generally with low mileage and in immaculate condition. After my car broke down suddenly, with repairs costing more than I wanted to spend on an older car, John Danby Car Sales was the first place I chose to look at, due to their excellent reputation I had heard about from other people. I went to view their stock on a couple of occasions, and nothing was too much trouble. Even when I emailed on a Saturday evening to ask if it was possible to test drive three of the cars on the Sunday. I felt assured with the advice I was given, and the service I received. Overall, I found the whole experience a pleasant one, and I am now a very happy owner of a new car from John Danby Car Sales.
