You might get passed from person to person in the ...

Hubby decided it was time for a new car, and seeing as we don’t have any spare cash at the moment it was definitely going to be second hand and preferably as cheap as possible at a standard that we liked. Having heard all the adverts for available car.com we thought we would go and have a look...

I really can't think of any !!

After reading a fair few positive reviews of Available Car Supermarket, I decided to travel from Blackpool to view a Nissan Almera Tino that I'd seen advertised. When entering the reception, I was immediately greeted and asked if I'd visited before as they gave me a full list of the vehicles...

There's not enough of them about!

We decided to visit Availablecar.com one Bank Holiday "for a look" having seen adverts and driven past their showroom at Castle Donington a few times. We were looking for long overdue MPV having had no joy in Autotrader and local used car dealers in Derbyshire..... and we were pleasantly...

“The car supermarket”

published 16/10/2003

wide range for selection

sometimes long waiting times

I bought my "new" used car about a month ago and am very happy with it. And as well with the service of available cars in castle donington. Apart from a bit of bad luck when I tried to pick up my car. But more on that later. I'll first give you some info about this "car supermarket". Choice and...

“Well worth a visit”

published 30/11/2004

Good choice and no pressure

Fixed prices, short test drives

First off I must say that I didn't end up buying a car from Available Car, as they didn't have the model I decided to buy, but they impressed me so much I thought I'd write about my experiences with them. When I first heard of Available Car, the name put me off as I thought it would be another of...

Stress free!

Too long a lead time for collection

I went along to Available Car in Castle Donnington a couple of Sundays ago looking to purchase a nearly new Ford Focus. It was overall an excellent experience and took the stress out of what can be a stressful transaction. The premise of Available Car is that there are no salesmen showing you...

“Great place to buy a car”

published 08/05/2011

Very tidy clean cars, no high pressure sales

optional extras can be had elsewhere for much less

We bought a car from Available car Sutton-in-ashfield 2 years ago and we are just returning to upgrade to a larger one due to a growing family! We have been looking around many garages/main dealers and this place stands well above the rest in terms of the quality of the vehicles and the no...

Questionable mechanical checks and valeting

I had come across Available Car on their website about a year ago. I was very struck by their prices and the wide choice of cars. I was particularly interested in a Ford Fiesta Zetec that they had, so after phoning, I travelled the 200 miles by train from Kent to take a look. Someone from...

Poor service

I bought a car from them when i took it for a test drive, i could tell somthing was wrong with the gears, and the gearleaver was very loose , when i put my foot on the cluch it banged, thay said that thay would put this right, but thay didnt when i took it for a full service for its second year, there were three bolts missing of the front and back of the engine mounts. thay were were suppost to have done this but didnt, and i dont think that thay did the special cleaning that i payed for ,very poor service as long as you pay your money thay dont care .

Not at all helpful, unwilling to provide a service to help anyone but them selfs, it took ages to get the car in the first place even though we pleaded with them. Our sales man on the day of transfer , while we were waiting for our car was texting someone while we were sat at the desk! after we found out we needed a docoment we didnt have with us they were just like so you cant take the car then, no offer of help or advice. The car was amazing and i really wanted it otherwise i would of walked out there and then.. we will never deal with these again, they are seriously lacking in hte customer service department.

The car I chose was nice, my only gripe with the company is the following.. Although you spend thousands on the car, they dont tax the car but have the cheek to give you a tax holder. Once I got the car, it was running on fumes and in a town I`am not familiar with, it was a mad rush to try and...

We bought our car from Available Cars because their cars are the cheapest in comparison to other car sellers. That's simple. However customer service was not excellent. Managed to get a small amount of money off a warranty and a small amount of money off the price of the car although that was a...
