    5 star stress free car buying experience.

    By Maureen C on 16 May 2018 | Verified purchase

    At Specialist Cars they really went the extra mile for us. They were very patient, pleasant and polite, with all questions answered very quickly and helpfully. When we decided to purchase the car, (with warranty included), they ensured the car was in perfect order, taking us around to ensure we were pleased with the valeting, and everything else we had agreed on before we signed. There were no hidden charges, and HPI/stolen and other checks were already done and verifiable print outs available for us. He did the car tax online and sorted out all paperwork. There was no rushing about, and no stress or pressure, as older people this was greatly appreciated. I would definitely recommend considering Specialist Cars as an alternative if you get stressed out by pushy sales people. We feel the car purchased was good value and we were pleased with the condition of it. We would rate quality of service 5 stars out of 5 without a doubt. We wish you well in your future endeavours.

    Lovely family owned business

    By ALICE W on 03 March 2018 | Verified purchase

    Lovely family owned business. John and his wife were extremely helpful and went above and beyond in helping me buy my dream car - especially with my lack of experience and know-how! Thank you again and I would highly recommend anyone to buy from specialist cars.

    Alice it was great dealing with you and your family. It took a while with the finance and insurance etc. But we got there in the end with your Father kindly standing guarantor for the finance with Close Brothers Finance. It was so nice to meet a young lady showing so much interest in my background of car rallying which brought back great memories. Please don't try it in your "Dream Car" :)

    Car buying can be a pleasurable experience

    By Peter W on 01 February 2018 | Verified purchase

    Having travelled up from Washington to look at the cars which were listed in Auto Trader I was very impressed with the welcome and help I was given by John and Carol. They have an excellent line up of cars and there was no pressure to buy at all, and I was very happy with my choice of car, a Citreon DS3. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to upgrade their car as they would be my first port of call if I were ever to look to buy again.

    Reply from Specialist Cars on 04/02/18

    Thank you Peter for your excellent, informative review. I forgot to mention that just 20 minutes after you left your payment I had a call from a young lady wanting to buy the DS3. When I told her that someone had paid for the car and was coming to collect in a couple of days she started to beg me to let her have the car. ( She was only joking ) I immediately looked nationwide for an identical car but none available. Thanks Again John and Carol.

    Excellent service and very helpful couple

    By Sriharsha K on 29 October 2017 | Verified purchase

    John and Carol are lovely couple and whole process was very smooth and easy. John was very helpful and spot-on regarding the description of the vehicle. It was pleasure to do business with them and I strongly recommend this family run business.

    Reply from Specialist Cars on 30/10/17

    Hello Harsha, We are very pleased to be of help and thank very much for your review. We are so pleased that you had the confidence to travel from Bradford to buy the Jazz which as you said, was because of our reviews which you have now added to. So thanks again from us both, and wish that we could give you as a customer, a 5 star review, as you were great to deal with, and hope to see you again sometime. John and Carol

    Excellent Service, great Company

    By Florence S on 21 October 2017 | Verified purchase

    Only went in to look around but could not pass up the opportunity to upgrade my car, without being pressurised into buying it. You could tell that John and his wife had been in the business for a lot of years as they were very professional and made the whole experience very easy. If you are looking to buy a quality used car go no further than Specialist cars in Blyth

    Reply from Specialist Cars on 22/10/17

    Hello Flo, Thank you for your great review. It is amazing how many people who have owned Skoda Fabias buy another when due a change of car, as did the previous owner of the one that you bought. She bought a 2013 Fabia off us with only 6,000 miles. We wish you and the dogs safe and happy motoring. You know where we are if you need any help. Thanks Again. John & Carol.

    Professional Service from Start to Finish

    By David D on 16 October 2017 | Verified purchase

    When searching for a car it is important to tick most of the boxes if not all, such as Mileage, age, MOT I found a car at Specialist Cars in Blyth Northumberland that met all of my requirements but it was over three hundred miles away from where I live in Wiltshire However this was not a problem John of Specialist cars provided a stress free service once I had spoken with him on the telephone he organised the whole process even obtaining the TAX and Registration through the DVLA. So if you visit Specialist Cars web site and see something you like and do not live near Blyth its not a problem

    Reply from Specialist Cars on 17/10/17

    Good Morning David, Thank you for your very informative review, I'm sure it will help others to have the confidence to buy unseen cars from us. I think I will now use the company that you used to collect and deliver you car as they where very professional. On another note yesterday I acquired another Lexus GS 300 auto 2006 with only 23,600 miles in green metallic with cream leather. It is going up for sale at £7250 so if you have anyone admiring your car I would be very great full if you put them in touch with me. Thanks Again and hope you have safe and happy motoring. John

    Top quality, reasonable prices.

    By Dawn E on 28 September 2017 | Verified purchase

    Really good quality car for reasonable price. They really know what they are talking about from all their experience in the business. They thought of absolutely everything including: MOT, service, valeted car for pick up and talked me through all the features. It was really useful to have so many photos on their website so you could see every detail before viewing and buying. I love my new car. Thank you.

    Reply from Specialist Cars on 02/10/17

    Very informative review Dawn. Go to the top of the class. A* Review. It must take us about 2 hours to do each advert especially when there are so many points and gadgets on a car to take photos of, like your Berlingo. It is nice to hear for the first time that it is appreciated. Thanks Again. John and Carol
