First time buying a car from a garage. Tom explained everything clearly for me. Made sure the car was totally right before I bought it.

Excellent friendly service

I was looking for a new family car as my car was to small. I wasn’t really sure what was best for me & what I could get for my budget. Tom & Sam were fantastic at giving me advice and helping me find the perfect car and a great price. Buying a car is stressful, They will help you & put you at ease. With Tom being a mechanic its an added bonus that I can use the garage to book my car into in the future. Thanks boys!

Highly recommend Tom and Sam

Sam was great – car was better than as described and overall can’t fault the service in any way whatsoever. No pressure selling and great service all round. I’ll be back!

Great service all round!
