About our used cars
We specialise in supplying late model, low mileage vehicles, occasionally we may have older models available, which we will have taken in PX, sometimes these cars may be suitable “first time” cars, however, being a family business, if they do not come up to our standards and we wouldn’t be happy to sell them to our own children, they won’t be allowed on our forecourt!! We can source any vehicle, it may take up to a couple of weeks but if we don’t have what you are looking for we will do our very best to find it for you. Simply let us know your requirements. All used cars come with a 3 month/3000 mile warranty, which can be extended to 2 years. We operate a “pressure-free-zone” in our showroom, we don’t like to or need to pressure anyone into buying a car, we have in the past even talked someone out of it because they were over committing themselves to a finance plan…not usual practice we appreciate, but our customers’ needs always come before our profit. A good way to go out of business?? No, in our trade, a great way to stay in business is by being honest, upfront and often empathetic with our customers.
