About us


After receiving the Fair Trading Award from Essex Trading Standards over 20 years ago, our company director decided to step up to the plate and apply to become trading standards approved.

Buy With Confidence knowing that this dealership was the first Trading Standards Approved car retailer (new or used) in Thurrock to be approved by Essex Trading Standards. The aim of the buy with confidence scheme is to help consumers to avoid rip-offs by providing a list of reputable local businesses that have all been independently checked by staff from Trading Standards Services against the scheme rules.

Most of our vehicles are full service history and may be sourced from lease companies that ensure a rigorous maintenance history.
