About UsI have been in the motor trade since 1972 and for 20+ years I have run my own company.

Why buy from us?
WarrantyAvailable on vehicles under 6 years old, and with less than 60,000 miles recorded, a 3 month or 3,000 mile (whichever the sooner) warranty with me personally not a third party 'mechanical insurance company'. After this period I am still available to help and advise. Over the years I have found that this works very well. A 'no warranty discount' can sometimes be negotiated prior to a purchase.
