Garden City Autos Ltd, peace of mind comes as standard, prices that are hard to beat

What do you do when you have been in the motor industry for 33 years, have run big dealerships in 5 countries’ including the UK, USA and Russia…have managed huge used car superstores as well as some of the most prestigious new car dealerships on the planet. Now, I have 2 businesses, 85% of the cars we buy get sold to other dealers but the cars we keep for retail customers we consider to be the best of the best.

I now hand pick some of the best used cars anywhere in the UK that offer great value for money. Compare our prices with anyone and like for like we will always be the cheapest or as close as makes little difference. We are also very particular in what we buy. We like cars that you will love driving. We look for the touches that are out of the ordinary or cars that are just that little bit different. But most importantly of all, we like treating customers how we would like to be treated if we were buying a car. I work from either my office at the rear of my house or at my compound so when you come to view a car you are also my guest.

If you are looking for a pre-owned car that isn’t the ‘run of the mill’ specification we are always carrying the nicer examples. But because we deal directly with major leasing companies, contract hire companies and agencies that have 1,000’s of vehicles that are at the end of their contracts we can source pretty much anything… but we don’t just buy anything. The cars we reject sets us apart. Sometimes we will only have 5-10 cars in stock, other times we may have 20-25 cars, it will just depend on whether there are great cars available to buy. We don’t buy anything to fill a space.

Some of our vehicles are still under manufacturer’s warranty but no car will ever leave us without at least 6 months of high level parts and labour cover supplied by The Motoring Organisation which is valid nationwide. We service, if necessary, to manufacturer schedules using OEM parts and reset any service indicators so that you can rely on the vehicle letting you know when it is next due. Our vehicles will come with two keys, a service history either by stamped book or printout and a long valid MOT. We only source HPi Clear vehicles and will supply you with a copy on delivery. We will always offer you the chance to extend your warranty cover but it will be your decision not us trying to sell you something you may feel you don’t want.

We can advise you on finance options and help make your budget go further but it must be affordable for you. Trust is what our business is founded on. We appreciate that most dealers allow for some negotiation in their prices, we just price to sell and try to be the best value on the market. We revalue daily and seasonally prices will go up and down depending on supply and demand.
