"Hi Eric , thanks again for today it's nice to deal with someone tidy for a change ile recommend you , car is great."


"We had been looking for a while for a BMW 118d M Sport to replace our second car and when we found Goddards Auto we decided to make the 150 mile round trip to look at a stunning example we had found on their website. We were rewarded with an exceptional car.

When we arrived we were warmly greeted and allowed to look around the vehicle without any pressure to buy. Following taking the vehicle on a test drive we decided there and then to purchase it. However, Eric the owner was not available on the day so we left a cash deposit and returned a few days later. The whole process was made simple and straightforward with email and telephone communication the next day from Eric confirming the sale. The small team are so professional.

The car was exactly as Eric described it, and the only hard part was deciding not to buy another car from the amazing collection. If you are gong to make that special purchase, don¹t waste any time looking anywhere else. We would recommend Goddards Auto to anyone wishing to buy a car, and we will be back when it¹s time to change, although we are so pleased with this car it may be some time.

Following the purchase we realised that the rear washer jet was not operating and rang Eric back. Without any hesitation Eric told us to get the issue sorted at a garage of our choice and he would reimburse us. On the day the work was completed we contacted Eric and within less than an hour the money was deposited into our bank account - that is what we call customer service.

"Hi Eric, I just wanted to thank both you and Ray for such a pleasant and relaxed buying experience. So lovely to go to a garage where you are treated almost like family throughout and made to feel valued. This kind of treatment is rare today and I will be back again I am sure when I need to change my car again. Thank you again."

"Absolutely can't thank Eric enough...excellent service from purchase to delivery and great knowing that he was there at the end of the phone to speak to personally if necessary! The car is fabulous and would definitely recommend Goddards to anybody, and hopefully will be back one day for the next one. "

"Eric, Just wanted to say thank you very much to you, Amanda and Ray for your excellent services, I love the Audi A3, just need some sunny weather so I can have the roof down!! I will be definitely recommending you to my family and friends. Thanks for the wine and chocolates too, nice touch. "

P Jackson

"Eric, Was going to drop you a line today to say that your Ray was a total star.. Never expected to be picked up in an R8.. But he took me through everything and was really helpful.
As for the car, chuffed so far! Cross country to Herts was a great run and I'm getting used to all the extra power and gadgets. All in, thank you both for your patience. Long distance and credit buying may be normal for you, but you made it all very easy. Thanks again! "


"Jake and Amy are in heaven!, they love the car although I must say it is very nice!!
Ray was helpful and pleasant, and I'm surprised that his still learning the ropes as he seemed very confident.
It has been a pleasure dealing with you, and your company, you have been helpful,and patient,throughout the whole process, and I would not hesitate to recommend you to others.
I will certainly be using your services again and I know Jake and Amy feel the same.!
Once again a big THANK YOU!"

Fiona Hallam

"What a lovely personal non pushy experience.the cars sell themselves not the salesman ..delighted with my new car I will definitely buy from you again and highly recommend you to anyone :)"

Helen Gould

"From finding it on Autotrader purely by look, i called Eric the next day and asked about the car and asked for some pictures as there was none on the site due to it just going on. Eric said he will send me some pics after the car had a quick clean, which he did as promised. I called Eric back and said i want the car but i had to gothrough a Finance company which caused some issues. Eric was very patient and it took around 3 weeks for things to get sorted. When i first met Eric and his staff i have to say it was a pleasure to be treated with respect and a car sales men to be straight with me. Eric did what he promised and made sure everything was perfect. The 2 guys who clean the cars did an excellent job and was just as polite. I was so happy with the service that my mum Kleo charles bought a Mini Sidewalk a week later from Eric and was also very impressed by the same things i was. Thanks Eric for your service. VERY MUCH HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR SERVICE AND TOP QUALITY CARS. Thanks for your help"

Shane and Kleo Charles

"Massive thank you to Goddards Auto for you incredible service. I could not have wished for more help and advice from Eric, by far the most amazing customer service I have received. I would recommend this company to anybody wanting to buy a quality car. I love mine and have had so much fun driving this week! Thank you so much! I will most definitely be returning! X outstanding!!"

Amelia Lowe

"My experience in a word: Perfection! The car is spectacular and was extremely reasonably priced! The service was truly phenomenal, Eric is a genuinely great guy. I could sing his praises all day long! I drove away a very very happy customer and even though I live 214 miles away, I will be back for my next upgrade (hopefully it'll be a Lambo). Great car + great service. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Thanks again!"

Ajay Macheca

"Just bought an Audi from Goddard's. They made the whole experience a pleasure especially with the added surprise of complimentary wine and chocolates! Would highly recommend them"

Mandy Woods

" A truly exceptional buying experience, Eric is one of two people in my experience (53) that I would completely trust to buy a car for me without me seeing it, he has credibility in everything he says and there are few that can describe a vehicles condition with such integrity .... Forget your dealerships, franchises ... Go get this experience, it's to his testament that buying a car can be a pleasant and fulfilling experience, keep the bar high Goddards you are the exception and far from the norm ... Thank you. "

Mike bull

" I can't recommend Goddards enough! Eric and his team offer great cars at competitive prices AND excellent service on top. I recently purchased a VW Scirocco from them and to say I'm amazed with not only the car but all of their help/service is an understatement! Hope to be back in a few years for my next upgrade. To match their great cars and service is the showroom, which to sum up in one word is STUNNING! Overall a great experience, thank you Eric and your team!

(P.S Sorry Naz, the cars not looking so white after my 3 hour trip to Yorkshire this morning, I'll get the polish out ASAP after all your hard work!) "

Jake Browne

" Would like to say a very BIG thank you to Eric and gang for making the buying process as smooth as possible. Cameron McDermott is one very lucky young man who is the owner of an immaculate Peugeot 208 gti he is still beaming from ear to ear. If only more people were like you the world would be a better place. X once again Thank You. "

" Eric

At 53 today this has to be the most exceptional buying experience ever. If I can write a testimonial in addition to what you have asked I would be more than happy to do so. I loved the trust and honesty .... Nothing in my view can better this .... Debbie broke down on the way home, happy tears I have to say, she is thrilled, thank you so much. The car is fab Eric, we are learning more and more .... Due to people here today we have not had much chance to look at it, let alone express our thanks to you. I still can't believe how we carried it off ..... I even have to thank the pony outside!!! Lol You have a style and charisma that works so well ... Have a busy time over the festive season and all the very best ! See you for my car next !

Regards "

" Hi Eric,

Just wanted to thank you for Saturday. I enjoyed my visit to your beautiful show room and your hospitality was greatly appreciated. I made it home safe and have since had a smug grin on my face. I put my faith and trust in you and you didn't disappoint me. I'll make sure to do some reviews for you and spread the word of your oustanding business. There are few people left who take pride in what they do, but you'll be pleased to know you fall in that category of the few. If there's any customer satisfaction surveys you'd like me to fill out please send them my way. Hope to speak again soon.

Kind regards "

" Hi Eric,

Just to let you know that up to now we have been very pleased with the Qashqai ( not a Porsche) that we purchased from you. Glad to see that you didn't have our Focus for very long! Thanks again for the prompt and friendly service and hopefully we can do business with you again in the future - but not for a Porsche!! Maybe a BMW 1 / Audi A3 cabriolet for Karen !!!

After much searching on Autotrader and many visits to different garages I came across Goddards Auto.

They had the exact Renaultsport I had spent months searching for, so I took an hour's drive to the showroom where I met Eric and his colleague. An hour later I had been on a test drive and bought the car, which would be ready to drive away with MOT and full valet the next day.

I have just got back from a week away driving and have to say I'm very impressed. Spotless and faultless. Thanks Eric, highly recommended!
