Mr and Mrs C P, Woking – “With a third child on the way we needed to move on from our elderly BMW and buy a seven-seater as well as a second, more fun car. We asked Bristol Car Consultant for advice. Duncan listened to our requirements and discussed our budget. He suggested a Ford S-Max. We found one near us and the garage in question also had a really nice Audi A3 Convertible which we decided would be the ideal fun purchase. Duncan looked at both cars, established that they were close to being good value and helped us with negotiating tips. This helped us reduce the price on both of them. He also advised us what to look for when checking the cars over and suggested pertinent questions to ask of the dealer. We bought both cars and have been very happy with them. Duncan helped us to buy with confidence and to get a good deal.”

Mr A G, Surbiton – “When my old car died I needed a new family hatchback urgently. Duncan was recommended to me and agreed to accompany me to Car Giant so that I could deal with the purchase of a new car in one day. I wanted something a little different from the norm and we found an Alfa Romeo Giulietta with the right spec and at the right price. Duncan checked that it wasn’t overpriced and went over the basics for me to give me the confidence to buy. He helped me with the salesman and with insurance advice too. I am very happy with the car and the service I received from Duncan. If you need someone to give you a little help and confidence during the purchase of a car, I can highly recommend his services.”

Ms A M, Bath – “My husband and I were recommended to make contact with Duncan through some friends and were extremely glad to have done so! With busy full time jobs which involve travel and a demanding toddler to keep us busy, the last thing we and our little boy needed when it came to upgrading one car and buying a run around car was to spend every weekend on garage forecourts. We also felt quite “green” in negotiating tactics and couldn’t help feeling ripped off in our early discussions with car salesmen before Duncan came on board. From the moment we had an initial conversation with Duncan he immediately put us at ease and increased our confidence in our negotiations. He researched the vehicles we were interested in, telling us how he felt they were overpriced and why and even spoke to a garage for us in respect of a car we ultimately bought. He made himself available at evenings and weekends to help us out when we needed to move quickly to get the car we wanted and was fantastic to deal with. We would not hesitate to recommend Duncan to others or to use him again when it comes to buying another car.”

Mr P D, Ashford, Kent – “I had been searching for a Volvo XC70 for several weeks as I wanted a very specific spec. BCC took on the search and found what I needed within 24 hrs, and within 20 miles of my home. The car had just been advertised and Duncan’s work helped me to be the first to view it. I am now the happy owner of exactly the car I wanted!”

Mr T E, Poole, Dorset – “When our 3rd child was on the way, Duncan advised us to buy our Ford S-Max rather than a VW Touran. He also helped us choose which model to buy. We are very happy with it and still have it three years later.”

Mrs A J, Wandsworth, London – “We needed a car that offered good value, lots of space for my business needs, and reliability. Duncan advised us to buy a Skoda Octavia Estate and helped us research the available cars. We are very happy with it and even considering getting a newer one soon.”

Mrs S W, St Albans – “The steering rack failed on our 5 year-old VW Golf GTI. Duncan negotiated with VW on our behalf and saved us £1,080 on the originally quoted repair price. 90% of the bill was paid for by VW. We were extremely grateful for his help.”

Mr S W, Guildford, Surrey – “We needed a car to accommodate our growing family. Duncan suggested we trade in our Ford Focus for an S-Max. We love the car as it offers us all the practicality we could need.”

Mr M W, Winford – “Peugeot quoted me £1600 + VAT to repair the clutch slave cylinder on my 4 year-old Peugeot 4007. We contacted Bristol Car Consultant who stepped in for us and spoke with the dealer. Peugeot ultimately paid 60% of the repair bill, saving us over £1000.”
