Life Line ProjectHello, I have bought three mini-buses from Carlton Motor Company so far on behalf of the company I work for. I work for a charity and value for money and reliability are two of the essential criteria when spending our money on any product. These are two values that Carlton’s also hold dear. The service is excellent and their attention to detail is also wonderfully reassuring. I wouldn’t recommend anywhere else in the North east for commercial vehicles. Thanks Kim Kim Michelle Area Manager Daniel Oosthuizen (South Africa)I was searching for a Citroen Relay van to export back to south Africa for the best part of 6 months (I needed a right hand drive) then I saw the advert for the Citroen Relay from Carlton Motor Co. I emailed them and to my surprise I was contacted by Chris the same day. The service I received from then on was superb, and also having very little knowledge of the regulations in order to export it back to south Africa, Chris assisted me with this throughout. Thank you and I will be in touch once I it is converted back in South Africa.
