When I was a little boy, my late father and I spent hours and hours reading 'Top Marques' and when the next addition to came out, it was the highlight of the week! Fast forward to the 21st century and the Auto Trader website was now there to torment us for hours on end!! We have been fortunate to have personally owned some of the best cars in the world, so believe me when I say that this business is born out of passion and my love of cars. From a very early age, I'd dreamed about owning my own car retailing business.
In July 2019, my dream became a reality and I set up Approved Vehicles Ltd with the goal of retailing premium prestige and performance used cars, whilst maintaining an outstanding customer experience. We focus on quality not quantity - by hand-picking each and every car we sell, we can speak confidently about each car, its history and any work it's having done in preparation for the new owner.
We are not a car supermarket and typically stock around 45 hand-picked stunning examples, giving us time to prep each car as it should be. Every customer can spend as much time looking at a vehicle as they like and not feel like a number - no pressure sales whatever.
I personally make sure that all cars are prepared to the highest standard. Since establishing in the summer of 2019, Approved Vehicles Ltd has grown from stocking 2 cars at home, to a rented lockup which housed 15 cars - and we now have our very own 10,000 sqft premises with 45 cars to choose from and dedicated car servicing bays and a carpeted, glass enclosed valeting bay. Every car that we find a new owner for comes with a 3 month no-quibble guarantee, so if anything goes wrong in the first 3 months of ownership, we fix it. Simple as that. If you want peace of mind for a longer period, we also provide our own extended warranties.
Our passion is leading us forward, which is echoed by our reviews.
