  • Buying a car from South America

    By paul H on 17 Oct 19 | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    I saw the Mercedes online whilst working in South America. I sent an inquiry by email and the Salesman replied answering all my questions straight away. A deal was done for my part exchange and deposit paid subject to viewing once I returned home. On viewing the car it was exactly as described and my wife and I were very pleased. Excellent service all round.

  • Excellent place to buy the right car 🚘

    Honesty, integrity and experience are rarely found in such abundance. What an absolute pleasure to deal with this company. From the first contact to organising a number plate change they acted with speed and efficiently at.all times. Special mention to Ed one of the greatest old school car salesmen I have had the pleasure to meet. Thanks guys. Graham
