About Our Cars
We specialise in cherry-picking used vehicles from the UK's most prestigious fleets. The vast majority of our stock is one owner with verified full-service history and have been on full maintenance contracts. Basically, if it is not good enough for us then it is not good enough for you. Every vehicle that we purchase is examined and scrutinised thoroughly to ensure that it meets our criteria. Buying a car is probably the second largest investment that one makes after their home. You will not buy a house without the correct survey, likewise, you should not buy a car without it being professionally inspected and prepared by a reputable dealer who specialises in this field. Unfortunately in the UK, there is not sufficient regulation on who can sell cars and to what standard.
Judge for yourself, look at what our customers and the industry experts have said about us in our awards section.
The success of our used car service starts with our purchasing techniques. Our Purchasing Managers have very strict criteria by which they buy stock. We do not buy accident damaged cars, finance re-possessions, grey imports, or vehicles with outstanding finance that is not cleared, etc. We only buy UK corporate fleets cars that are mainly been on full maintenance contracts. In this way, we can see everything that has been done on the vehicle from the outset and we know no corners have been cut. If we sell a vehicle that is not corporately owned it will be clearly stated such as part exchange clearance, etc.
All our vehicles are prepared to exceptionally high standards. The company was born in 1988 specialising in preparing vehicles for manufacturers and large fleet operators in Avonmouth & Royal Portbury Docks. Just view our stock page and you can see for yourself. We have many pictures per car which can be fully viewed. View our customer testimonials as our customers are the judges of our cars.
Initially, you may feel that our used stock is expensive due to the caution we take when buying and the high level of preparation and quality control methods that we implement to ensure complete customer satisfaction. However, you will no doubt be presently surprised. More than likely you visited this site through an external link from a motoring search engine due to the price of the car and secondly, it met your specifications.
Even though we have a showroom with full dealer facilities we are primarily a web-based business. Due to this, we compare our prices against all reputable Independent Dealers, Main Dealers and Car Supermarkets in the UK to ensure that our vehicles come on the first page on any NATIONAL search. We do this every week without fail to ensure that our cars are the most competitively priced in the UK on a like for like basis. We have invested in software that automates this process for us and when it flags that one of our vehicles have dropped their position. We study the pricing of that vehicle and make any adjustments where necessary.
We have a dedicated Quality Control Manager that will deal with any after-sales enquiry that you may have. It could be that you want to upgrade a component on the vehicle or the vehicle has developed a fault, we will do whatever we can to assist. On our warranties you can take the car to any garage that is vat registered, so you do not always need to bring it back to us.
For as long as you own the car and as an appreciation of our goodwill we will give you a 25% labour discount for any servicing and repairs that you carry out in our workshop.

COMPLETE PEACE OF MIND MOTORING.
To ensure that we purchase vehicles that comply with our criteria we have quality control measures in place.
Firstly when the vehicle arrives on site it may have already been road-tested for at least 100 miles. The driver would give us a report of this. Secondly, all the documents are examined and then finally all it is fully appraised. These details are contained in the VEHICLE IN form.
Secondly, when a customer buys a car, everything that is agreed to be done will be copied onto a VEHICLE OUT form.
Once we receive a signed order from the customer and the sales staff have completed a vehicle-out form. This information is then sent to the workshop who re-examine the car, check for any faults, carry out any necessary work and have to complete a Pre-Delivery Inspection form.
Once the vehicle is fully prepared we have a detailed hand-over procedure with the customer. The customer checks that all the work we carried out has been done and our hand-over specialist goes through the whole vehicle. When the customer is totally satisfied then they sign the hand over form.
We have been implemented these processes for over a decade and they are constantly monitored and reviewed where necessary.
Our commitment to quality has been reinforced by our decision to work to the ISO 9001:2000 standard. We have not registered for this certification but we have completed all the courses and are implementing all the procedures. Click here to view our quality control process.
