    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

  • Amazing and friendly service!

    By andreas M on 11 Mar | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    A first class service. Very friendly and not pushy. Called and left a small deposit to view a Mercedes CLS 63 Amg. Travelled from London. Worth the journey! All cars are immaculate and are of quality spec. Took the car out for a test drive, hassle free and no fuss. Helped set up road tax and service was helpful and made you feel comfortable. Car was in a clean condition. A very professional team and I'm glad we found them. Many thanks!

  • Highly Recommend

    By Philip B on 03 Dec 18 | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    Spent the weekend looking for a car for my wife. We went to all the usual corporate main dealers to be met with corporate sales people and attitude. Then we stumbled across this place. Found all the staff very friendly but not pushy, transparent and honest. Highly recommend you check them out when looking to buy a car.
