Gatwick Car Sales

1-2 Church Rd, Lowfield Heath, Crawley RH11 0PQ, UK – 01293 545555

Best place to buy used cars!! Friendly, welcoming staff who know exactly what they're talking about! From calling up to enquire about the car to driving the car away I was confident in who I was buying from (you don't get that a lot these days). They even put it through an MOT before I collected the car (it passed with no advisories) and a bigger bonus 3 months warranty! Which I haven't needed yet but reassuring to know I have it. 5 star service all round. Will definitely be returning if I'm ever in need of a car. Thanks Shaun :)

We visited Shaun at Gatwick Car Sales, a small but welcoming independent site, where we were greeted by a friendly face upon arrival. He was very knowledgeable offering to help us with any questions we had and spending the time answering them. We initially felt drawn to one white ford S max car in particular, which Shaun immediately offered his advice and honesty around the vehicle, showing us around it and offering us a deal which we felt tempted by and felt he gave his best and more importantly most honest offer forward, no messing. We tested the vehicle and liked it He went above and beyond the service duty. When it was time to finally decide and commit. It was at this point that I cannot rate them high enough, for me being a indecisive person surrounding the purchase. He simplefied the whole deal guiding me through it and taking the stress out of buying the vehicle into a very pleasant and positive experience and one I will remember. Thank you again. It is the little things of value you receive here that don't always get a mention kindness, integrity, honesty, all with a pleasant price tag. How can you not afford that??? I hope people who read this will be encouraged to make the trip and visit this little treasure within the Gatwick area. Thanks again. We are delighted with our new purchase Dan and Jane

Horley Car Centre

Town Centre, Consort Way E, Horley RH6 7AU, UK – 01293 774007

After reading the reviews on here I was hesitant about going to Horley Car Centre, but it shows that you shouldn't trust what everyone writes without knowing the full story. I couldn't have wished for a better experience when buying my car from Jeff. He is a lovely, genuine guy who was completely honest and open with me, even when I asked him about the review below. I am incredibly happy with my purchase from him, the car was in brilliant condition and I wouldn't hesitate about going back or recommending him to friends and family. Plus, I know that if I end up having any issues (which could happen no matter where you buy from) he'd be more than happy to help. Better service than you'd get from a Main Dealer! 5*!

I purchased a Mercedes from Horley car centre (the third car I have purchased from them) went to them as they have been in the same place with the same owner for 20 years. It was a smooth process from choosing the car to arranging the finance. Would highly recommend.

Shipley Bridge Garage Ltd

Shipley Bridge Garage, Antlands Lane, Shipley Bridge, Horley, Crawley RH6 9TE, UK – 01293 821156

Bought a kia Sorrento 2weeks ago and couldnt be happier. From start to finish the service was excellent and friendly and honest. I dealt with the dealer principal Sam whos service was second to none and would 100% reccomend go see him when looking for next car. Great variety of stock, great service and added peace of mind of being rac approved

My son brought a car from Shipley bridge garage about a month ago, and he is really happy with it. they are very nice and friendly at the garage, we had a small query afterwards and they answered it straight away. Well worth having a look at their cars.

What are you rights when your buy a used car?
The Citizen's Advice Bureau have an excellent and comprehensive section on their website. If you find something wrong after purchasing a used car It’s worth knowing that you’ll still have legal rights even if you don’t do the proper checks. If there’s something wrong with your used car you may have a legal right to a repair or some or all of your money back.

Make sure a trader is trustworthy
If you’re buying from a trader look for an established firm with links to trade associations like the Retail Motor Industry Federation or a sign that says they follow The Motor Ombudsman's code of practice look for a trader with cars inspected by an independent engineer or motoring organisations.

Buying from an auction
Auctions are the riskiest way of buying a used car as you probably won’t have the legal protection that you have buying through a trader. Ensure that you read the auction house’s T and Cs before buying a car.

Check a car’s history

Check the car’s details with the DVLA
  • Ask the seller for the car’s registration number
  • MOT test number
  • mileage
  • make and model
Use the DVLA’s free online vehicle information checker to make sure what the seller tells you matches the DVLA’s records.

Check the MOT and history
You should check that MOT tests have been done regularly throughout the car’s history. Check this on GOV.UK. This is a free service.

Get a private history check.
These will cost up to £20 – but they can be worth it! This will give you valuable information about serious problems the car might have including if:
the car has been stolen
the seller still owes money on the car
the car has been in a serious accident
the car is showing the correct mileage
the car has been written off

Inspect the car and take a test drive
You should arrange to view the car in daylight, preferably when it’s dry - it’s harder to spot damage to the car if it’s wet. It’s a good idea to meet at a private seller’s house so that if something goes wrong after you’ve bought the car, you’ll have a record of their address.

The AA has a useful checklist for what to look out for when inspecting a used car and its paperwork. Make sure you ask about the car’s service history.

Always take the car for a test drive.
Drive for at least 15 minutes on different types of road. The AA has a checklist for what to look out for when taking a test drive. If you’re still not sure - get an independent report
However, you can go a step further and get an independent report on the car. This will give you detailed information about the car’s condition and will cost around £100 to £200 an are available from motoring organisations like the AA
