Excellent service and explained things really well and very helpful

- Brian Tinning


Great service Great service kept well informed of delivery status vey helpful and polite staff at dealership very competitive pricing would certainly recommend and will return.

- Robert Paterson


A quality product and good service by sales staff Didn't feel pushed into a quick sale, time given to peruse at leisure and test drive. Offered after sales but respected I didn't want anything and they have followed through to see if we're happy with the car. Did recommend to friend who also purchased a vehicle. Could do better by supplying a paper copy of the mot as not everyone has the resources to print one.

- Gladys Frazer


Good, friendly service. The staff at Telfords were very professional and friendly, but not "pushy". The process of part exchanging my car for a new model was handled well, the whole process was made very easy. There are a couple of outstanding issues with the new car, which will hopefully be sorted out just as efficiently. I would recommend Telfords to others.

Just bought my Citroen C3 Aircross. Can I just say that Jack Telford was a fantastic salesman. Wasn't pushy like some sales man can be. Explained everything to us and managed to beat Arnold Clarks value of my old car. Many thanks for everything Jack.

- Gareth Docherty

- William Taylor


100% recommend. Excellent experience and I would definitely use again. I'd go as far to say the best buying experience of a car to date. Jack was consistent, polite, punctual and zero heavy sales, literally zero. Made the process feel very relaxed and unpressurised. As for my car? I'm in love.

- Rachel Baines


Alex was very helpful polite and didnt rush me into a purchase .Everything was sorted quickly and efficiently .Thank you

- Michael Walton


A safe pair of hands. Telford's enjoys being a family-run company with all the usual advantages of low staff turnover, intense company loyalty and customer service that such management/sales structures brings to their mission. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Telford's for their staff courtesy, professionalism and quality of product.

- Michael Ross


Would recommend - great service Alex was very helpful and patient - kept us informed and tried to accommodate our requests. Car is just what I wanted and well worth the drive to get it

- Julie Jenkins


First rate, excellent. I was very pleased with the total experience of purchasing the car. The car was in immaculate condition after its service and valeting.The sales rep Alex was really sociable and knowledgeable, he explained everything in detail. Which put me at ease. I look forward to many happy hours of driving and the assurance and confidence in future years servicing with Telfords.

- Rosemary Williams


Perfect service This is our 5th DS from Telford's. Each time we're treated and looked after brilliantly. We wanted to upgrade to a higher spec DS7. Within 4 weeks Telford's found us a one. The new car is fantastic. Thank-you

- Hugh Mcinn


A friendly relaxed approach to car buying. Although I didn't buy a car from Telfords, I have to leave a review. I felt very welcomed by Jack and as though nothing was too much trouble. I got my rather long list of potential cars down to just 3, so I was back here on a number of occasions, with a different question or wanting to view or test drive a different car to be certain I was buying a car I'd be happy with. I felt terrible to tell him I'd chosen a BMW over the DS7. For a friendly, relaxed approach to buying a car, I'd certainly recommend Telfords.

- Ben S


First class service from Jack and Harry Best experience I’ve had buying a car. Exceptional service and customer care. Nothing too much trouble. They took time with me to ensure I was happy with everything. I would certainly use them again, and recommend them unreservedly.

- Joyce Spearman


Would recommend them without hesitation Great customer service, nothing was too much trouble. Very honest salesman if he didn’t know the answer he said so and went and found the information. Did everything they said they would.

Love my new car Great service very helpful and thoughtful. I loved my old car and was very attached to it, and got a bit upset selling it, but you were very understanding and I now love my car as much. Hopefully the service I have booked for the next three years will be good and my car will last me another ten years as my other car did.

Low Mileage Quality Car Arranged to take a look at 3 used cars - all were ready and waiting when I arrived. Given plenty of time to test drive and look round each car with out any pressure selling. Got a very low mileage car fully serviced and MOT for the year. Free MOT for life of the car and comprehensive warranty and breakdown cover for the first year included. Would consider Telfords again for a used car., Thanks to Jack for everything.

I bought a Citroen C4 Cactus from them in 2019 . I've always had it serviced with them and had an excellent experience . It hasn't needed much except routine servicing , but a couple of minor warranty repairs were done with no quibbles. The staff are friendly and helpful.  It's a three generation family business which no doubt helps.

- William Ferguson


Excellent Helpful and informative without pushing a sale.
