The whole experience was very well handled. The van was handed over in prime condition having undergone all the servicing and valeting. This is the second van I have bought from you and I have no hesitation in recommending you to others Yours Simon Overend Brian CorseHi We have just received the van and would like to thank you very much it's exactly what we wanted, were very happy. Thanks for all your efforts. Hope you have a nice weekend Brian Mike AlbertREGARDING VAN SALE: Chris and team, 'I asked and you delivered!' I am writing to thankyou for expediting the delivery of my newly purchased van. As you are aware I live in Bedfordshire, my father and i drove to view 3 Vans that you had advertised online, I left Tuesday morning and arrived at lunchtime, you kindly went through the process of what will happen if i decided to buy one. An hour later I chose the Van but their were stipulations on the deal, I needed it to be delivered this week to Bedfordshire. You then stated that you as a company have a couple of hurdles that you have to overcome before a delivery could be made (MOT, Service and any advisories on MOT to be rectified). You later advised me the MOT would be carried out Wednesday morning which identified a couple of faults, 1st an EGR Valve and 2nd a wheel bearing which was making me anxious. But you had all completed Wednesday and you delivered Thursday Lunch! VERY IMPRESSED and GRATEFUL for all the EXTRA EFFORTS! Once again i would like to thank you for the timely delivery. I just hope the Van is as efficient and reliable as you and your team!! Looking forward to doing more business with your family run company. Kind Regards Mike Albert Daryl Winyardvan was exactly as described delivered to me on time. nice polite people to deal with highly recommend 5 stars...
