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.

    A great experience. Easy to deal with, very friendly and fast communication. Recently purchased a Toyota Aygo, which was in fabulous condition and immaculately clean inside and out. Perfect first car for me. I would definitely buy from here again.

    By Arslan D on 27 Aug | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    Seamless buying experience, I was very amazed to see the car in person and how clean it was kept. Drove the car from Horncastle to London and not even for a second I felt that I was driving a used car, seemed like I had bought a brand new car out of the showroom. Would definitely recommend John Darby Car Sales to my family and friends.
