"I am unlike almost any other vehicle trader you are likely to meet. I set up my business because I am a true car enthusiast and I love buying and selling great cars and helping people find the right car for them.
Initially, as a young lad, I completed a degree in product design but my ambitions to become a car designer were hard to fulfil. Over time the path of life lead me into the world of software where I was a UK director for an excellent company, but I had to step down from this job to commit time for family life upon the arrival of our daughter 2009. It was then in 2010 that I basically converted a hobby into a living and I’ve been playing with cars full time ever since!
More recently I’ve become a real fan of electric cars and have been running my own 100% electric car since 2015. Yes… a ‘petrol head’ owning an electric car..! It is possible, and they’re great. We need to change, climate change is real, and this is a really positive step forward for sustainable personal transport. I’ll happily talk at length to any sceptics on the matter and I’m sure I’ll help convince you it’s a great way forward.
With any car I sell or any advice I give, I pride myself on being honest, transparent and refreshingly different from your stereotypical car dealer. You will receive a friendly, personal, helpful and professional service. Even if you just want to call and chat about cars or ask for some advice - no problem!"
