Fantastic company to deal with - incredibly smooth transaction. Nick and Stuart were absolutely delightful to deal with and I would highly recommend your company. Brilliant experience from the sale of my first car.

Sally Maynard - Manchester - VOLKSWAGEN TIGUAN

Staff who collected the car were extremely friendly and supportive, able to help with the challenges faced. Not happy I had to re-schedule when it was not my fault... Some contingency planning needs to be done and put in place in case of cancellations from far away as caused a lot of stress and inconvenience for me. Marc however sorted this thankfully.
