Why buy from us?
WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE
- Friendly buying experience
David and Steve are highly experienced and knowledgeable car enthusiasts. Together they make a dedicated and friendly team, who are proud of every car they sell and are always welcome for prospective customers to call in for a coffee and a chat, as many of our established customers do.
The whole team at Maundrell & Co are committed to building long-lasting relationships with their clients and welcome you to enjoy the experience of browsing through their hand-selected range of vehicles in a relaxed, pressure-free environment. We are always available to offer help and advice and test drives are done without fuss or obligation.
We make your car-buying experience a pleasure removing the stress and worry which is often experienced elsewhere.
- Competitive pricing policy
We constantly research the wider market to ensure that our prices are competitive and we offer excellent value for money. As you will be aware, value for money does not necessarily mean the cheapest on the market; as we will not compromise on the provenance or quality of our vehicles.
- Hand selected cars to meet the highest standard
We specialise in buying the highest quality and specification prestige cars, sports and 4x4 vehicles, including Porsche, Audi, Mercedes, Lotus, BMW, Land Rover, Lamborghini, Maserati, Bentley, Ferrari, Aston Martin and Abarth. Most of our cars are purchased directly from the brand main dealer or directly from our customers. We do not follow the masses and larger chains by purchasing our vehicles from auctions or lease companies.
- Highest preperation standards
All of our vehicles undergo a detailed and rigorous multi-point pre-delivery inspection.
All of our cars over three years old are supplied with a new MOT where necessary.
All routine service is carried out.
All of our cars come complete with a service history.
All cars are subject to a full HPi investigation to ensure they are free of total loss as a result of an accident, theft and any outstanding finance.
All cars are subject to our valet teams' expertise using ONLY quality, respected trade products and brands such as Auto Glym. Their expertise makes the car shine - in more ways than one. This is an integral and vital aspect of our business.
We are proud of our reputation. This is illustrated by our large customer base - many of whom have been with us for over 20 years. A small selection of testimonials are listed and those who know us best are happy to discuss their experiences with potential customers.
- Complete confidence and peace of mind
Many of our vehicles will be sold with the balance of their 3-year manufacturer's warranty. Therefore should your car develop a fault whilst under its manufacturer's warranty, you can take it to be repaired at any main agent throughout Europe.
One of strongest selling points is the "built in" warranty with every car we sell. To put it simply: should a vehicle you bought from us develop a fault during its warranty period, we will put it right for you as quickly as possible and without fuss. To this end we employ a dedicated After Sales Manager who is always ready and available to assist you, should you be unfortunate enough to experience a problem with your new vehicle. We have dedicated courtesy cars available and we promise to do our very best to keep any inconvenience to a minimum.
All of our vehicles qualify for an unlimited mileage extended warranty. Options to extend warranties are available for 1,2 or 3 years.
We are also members of the Retail Motor Industry (RMI) And in an unregulated industry such as the motor trade, we believe in voluntary membership to such organisations to help reassure customers that quality is our number one priority.

We have over fifty years of experience with main UK dealer franchises. We use this expertise and our franchised contacts to negotiate the best possible prices on the vehicles we buy. Because we operate with low overheads we are able to pass on the savings directly to our customers.
- I found a cheaper car privately?
"It's unwise to pay too much, but it's also unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. It can't be done. If you deal with the lowest price, it's well to add in for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough money to pay for something better." - John Ruskin (1819-1900)
- Will I get a warranty?
Yes. Every car comes with a 12 month warranty, to give you total confidence and peace of mind!
- Will you try to sell me a particular make or model of vehicle?
No. At Maundrell & Co we aim to obtain the car you want at the best possible price. We are not part of a group or affiliated to any manufacturer - we are truly independent!
