50 Years in business as an independent family-run dealership Read our reviews


What our customers say about us...

Picked up my A team spacetourer, well I added a few touches lol. Brilliant. Very relaxing drive, comfortable and once rear seats were removed, bit heavy for one but managed. The disability scooters, 2 of them, fitted straight in without disassembly. With room to spare for luggage and cool box. So thanks again telfords see you at servicing time..

- John Turner


They are simply very good

- Bamba Lema


Great customer service from the team. From the moment you enter your first met with a friendly member of the staff to when you leave I have always been made welcome and they have delivered in a professional way. My recent experience Alex was excellent from my initial visit to when I picked up my new C3 Aircross. A credit to this family business.

- Lee Young


From start to finish, the staff were fantastic! Ewan was our advisor and he was 2nd to non, Great service, informed about everything and made to feel at ease both over the phone and face to face, they couldn't do enough to ensure I was completely satisfied with the car. Would highly recommend

- Brian Bennett


We purchased a Citroen C3 2017 from Telfords 11 months ago. The team were friendly and communicated well throughout the sales process, and helped us trade in our old car at the same time. The reason I am writing this review is because our car suffered a fault a few weeks ago, and so we had it towed to Telfords for repairs. They could not have been more helpful and communicating every step. We've picked it up today and the car runs better than ever. Stellar stuff!

- Tom Clark


Very pleased with my new car. Thanks to Jack and the team for all your help.

- Carol Foster


Drove down from Aberdeen to collect our newish car from Telford. Car was ready to be driven off after 15 minutes of paperwork. Excellent car, excellent service, excellent price. Definitely worth a look online.

- Carol Connell


Absolutely delighted with my new car. The service from start to finish has been excellent. Couldn't have done more and I received a phone call the next day to check everything was OK. Excellent service and I would certainly recommend Alex

- Dianne Roberts


Hi everyone! Just wanted to mention the recent customer service I received from Telford's, and to thank Alan and his team for excellent service. I had been in the week before for my cars MOT, which took a little longer than anticipated and Alan kept me updated through to it's fruition. However due to this there had been no time for the usual aftercare on my car, and Alan arranged for next time I was up in Carlisle to drop my car off, and he would provide the aftercare. I was at an appointment in Carlisle the Monday after, dropped my car off, was given a rough time for collection and shortly after I picked up my shiny clean car!πŸ•ΊπŸ€—. Top people, top customer service thank you ☺️ Ps due to my being technologically useless whilst trying to post a new review I accidentally deleted my old review! Apologies. HπŸ€—

- Harry Brannigan


Very happy from start to finish, met Alex who was very courteous, friendly and very knowledgeable, he asked what we were looking for, within half an hour we bought a car,so happy with it,nothing was a problem for Alex he made us feel very relaxed and welcoming, all staff were friendly and accommodating. Thank you Alex and team Telford.

I recently purchased a 2016 DS4 from Telfords in Carlisle. I have to say, the service I have recieved from start to finish has been excellent. I was collected from the trian station by Alex, I'd travelled 250 miles to view the car, it was in great condition. Super happy with my new car and I'd recommend this family run garage, and trust them much more than some of the large car groups. Thanks again Alex, salesman

- Alfie Gray


Friendly service great team at sales will use again

- Alex Murdoch


Had a wonderful experience buying my car, Marcin was amazing sorting everything out for me. I was kept up to date ever step of the process. Loving my new car, thankyou so much Marcin and the team at Telford Autos

- Tracey Dent


Friendly, professional service from Ethan. Very knowledgeable but not pushy, yet gave us all options open to us when buying our new DS 4 Because of the level of personal care and attention to us as customers, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend both himself and the garage

- Julie Ascough


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


2nd hand Car purchases are always reliant on the honesty of the Seller. This Pensioner was really interested in a complete change of car style and purchased a Citroen C1. Alex Saunders salesman was really assuring, patient and customer focused, cup of coffee at hand, explaining the purchase process and good with my examination and my 2 test drives of the car. Really good to have 12 month Warranty rather than the average 3 months that other garage sellers give. A fault light appeared on my dash board which when inf garage two staff member swiftly informed me of why within minutes and it was so minor I just wasn't accustomed to this car. Happy customer. Feeling confident of any problems I encounter will be swiftly attended to. A good experience.

- Jean Goudan

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

Went To Telford recently. Very impressed with the service. Very nice calm atmosphere. Ethan Burns the sales executive I was dealing with was very helpful. Answered all my questions and was very easy to talk to. Would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to buy a new or used car.

- Alan Miles


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

- 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

First rate, excellent. I was very pleased with the total experience of purchasing the car.

I look forward to many happy hours of driving and the assurance and confidence in future years servicing with Telfords.

- Rosemary Williams

Excellent service from Jack and Harry. Best experience I’ve had buying a car. The lads took their time with me to ensure I was happy with the deal . Nothing too much trouble. I would recommend Telford Automobiles without hesitation, and will certainly use them again 

- Joyce Spearman


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.
