Buyers Guide

When we purchase a vehicle for stock it is carefully checked on arrival to ensure it is of Broad Town Standard.

The vast majority of our vehicles are purchased via new car main dealers and major fleet sources who we have dealt with for over a number of years.

Sunday and Out of Hours: By Appointment

Here at Broad Town Cars we are a family run business. We do not employ salesman preferring to use our vast knowledge and experience in the motor trade to help make sure you get the right car for you.

Andrew is in full control of the car sales and has been working 6 days a week since 1983 - Something that as he is getting older he is finding increasingly difficult to do !

Because of this we have taken the decision to open EVERY OTHER Saturday from now on, giving him some extra time to recuperate each week !!

Please contact us before coming to view a car on a Saturday to MAKE SURE we are open – As an added service we will also be available for late appointments on Monday evenings to allow people who have missed us at the weekends to come and view or collect their cars.

I am sure that you can appreciate why we have decided to do this and hope that it is not too inconvenient for everyone.

If you require any more information regarding our opening hours do not hesitate to contact us as and we can make an appointment for you.


Our proprietor views many hundreds of vehicles each week searching for the most desirable stock, therefore if you do not see the exact vehicle you are looking for in our display, please give us your requirements, we will add it to your shopping list!

Test Drives

We are pleased to offer test drives, we are concerned that you purchase a vehicle you feel most comfortable in and that suits your pocket.

Taxing Your New Car

We have available all the latest road tax costs to comply with the vehicle emissions. This is a graduated cost and varies for each vehicle depending on it's fuel type and its emissions rating - please ask for the cost of the tax on the vehicle you are interested in although most of them should be displayed on this web site.

Have You Got A Part Exchange?

We are happy to consider taking a part exchange. It must be remembered that prices will depend on which particular vehicle you are interested in and when you are considering purchasing. Like all business we have targets to meet and prices offered will depend on our current target position.

Display Cars

Cars on display have not been serviced or pre delivery checked. In the unlikely event that you do find a fault we are quite happy to put this right at the pre delivery stage.

After Sales

We are very proud that we are not only a car sales operation but also run a fully equipped workshop and MOT testing station. Not all small car dealers can offer this, it also means we can offer a full after sales backup and are able to look after you vehicle long after the initial purchase.

Payments Accepted

We accept most major debit and credit cards; we are more than happy to take these as a deposit. On receipt of a deposit you will receive a customer information sheet with all the payment details and bank transfer information on it. However a brief summary of this is printed below:

  • Direct Transfer (preferred method): On receipt of a deposit, we will supply you will all the details and time frames required to complete a transfer to us in time to collect your new vehicle.
  • Cash
  • Bankers Draft
  • Building Society Cheque This is fine as long as it is one made out direct from the counter staff to us)
Car Finance

We are sometimes asked about finance. We took the decision last year to stop offering this option. More and more often we started to find that our customers had usually already sourced funding before coming to look at the car. In the present climate it also became apparent that like most things there are deals all over the internet and when comparing what customers could get direct from the lenders it was sometimes better than we could offer ! Consequently we just do what we do best which is to find, prepare and sell cars. We still take most major credit cards and this is now becoming a popular way to pay for cars as there are so many 0% transfer deals on offer that even with our 3% credit card charge it still makes for a very cheap way to spread the cost of your new car purchase.


All vehicles sold over £2500 are sold with a pre delivery service, a minimum of 6 months MOT and a comprehensive warranty. They are also checked to ensure all their functions and features are working and remember we do all of this in our workshops.

Extended Warranties

We are proud to work with Warranty Wise and offer national extended warranties at very competitive prices. These cover most mechanical and electrical components. They can be extended up to 24 months - please ask us for the prices. Exact cover is available on request, or you can visit their web site for more information.


For our best attention on viewing your prospective purchase it is best to make an appointment to view the vehicle - this allows us to give you our best attention. You can contact us by phone on 01793 731282 or email to make an appointment. In these high tech days you can also text us or even leave us a message via our Facebook page too….we try and respond to all promptly, and we really are a friendly bunch, so feel free to ask any questions...

Something Else?

If you do not see the car for you, please leave us your name and contact details and we will do our best to find it.

Questions and Queries

Lastly if you do have any questions or queries to ask about your impending purchase please do ask us. We are here to help the customers make the right decisions, we do not employ high pressure sales techniques or high pressure sales staff - we are not paid commission on sales, that way we ensure a helpful and friendly dialogue with all our prospective and regular customers.
