Customer Reviews

I have just sold my car to Hi Auto and I have to say it was by far the easiest and most straightforward transaction I have ever experienced.
Ryan D
Myself and my wife bought a car during the covid 19 pandemic. We were so pleased with the amazing service we received. Hi auto were brilliant! No pressure, friendly, professional and the car was delivered to our door within just a few days of buying it. Were so happy with the Car, thank you all once again.
James G
I would recommend Hi Auto. My son recently purchased his first car from them and the service we received was excellent. Dan was extremely helpful and friendly and he made the whole process easy and trouble free. The customer service is outstanding. Both Dan and Ade delivered a first class service with phone calls being returned very quickly. I am extremely impressed with Hi Auto and would recommend them for anybody looking for a used car. The car is fantastic.
Judith B
These two guys are the 1st two that are selling used cars who I would allow my wife to go to on her own to buy a car from without the fear of her being ripped off. The car I bought needed a new headlight when I mentioned it the reply was, that will be sorted when it goes for its m.o.t if anything is else is found it will be done, no problem. I have got myself a really cracking Corsa only had two days and I love it. I can not praise the guys enough I've never met anybody like them. I can recomend them 100%
Andy G
Excellent service provided by Dan and Ady at Hi Auto. They were both really friendly and helpful, and quick at getting back to me with any questions I had with absolutely no pressure to buy from them. We looked at another similar car on the same day but the car at Hi Auto was better standard, the service was better and with a years warranty and breakdown so we got a better deal with them. Picking the car up today was really fast and efficient and they informed DVLA and sorted out the tax for me. I would definitely recommend Hi Auto to anyone looking for a new vehicle.
Stacey P
Absolutely fantastic to find an honest and reliable car dealer nothing was to much trouble for Dan & Ady. Would recommend these to guys to anyone.

If you are looking for a honest garage ...look no further than hi autos ..a genuine couple of guys ...after buying my car from them I found a rust spot on the roof ,I rang Dan and told him , his reply was no problem bring it back and we'll sort it out, can't ask for better than that . Would have no problems recommending this garage to anyone
Stephen P
Visited 'Hi Auto Ltd' on Sunday and purchased a car we had seen advertised, perfect car for me! Vehicle was exactly as stated on Auto Trader and we were most impressed. We were deiighted with the professional, friendly and efficient service we received and purchased the car there and then, such a pleasant experience. We were also so impressed by their customer service that went beyond what is expected. This garage is a little further than we would often have looked but so worth the journey, we will certainly be back when the time comes.
Liz M

A very professional and pleasant transaction, would throughly recommend.
John D
Bought a Polo from this dealer today! Incredibly smooth and easy experience. Gave me a very fair price for my car Part Ex, despite it having a few issues. He was very genuine and helpful, and he made the whole process easy and fast. Would definitely recommend.
Oliver S
Collected my ST today from Hi Autos and it was a great overall experience from looking at the car to dealing with Andy who made things straight and pressure free, which was a pleasure. The car is first class and I recommend using these guys to anyone
Rhys D

Dan and Ady are honest guys. Great advice with no pressure and it was easy to buy a car from them. See you in a few years for another car.
Viraj S
Great personal service, very helpful and not too pushy. Great prices!
Sarah B
Small family run firm very polite and helpful - made buying a used car a pleasure. Beats the big boys (we have visited in the past) hands down. Definitely recommend dealing with these chaps.
Paul G
A very polite and obliging organisation. I would be very pleased to recommend them to any future customer. Peter Campbell.
Peter C
From the outset, both Ady & Dan were extremely helpful in explaining both the cars background and specs, they were not pushy at all and any faults found were corrected the same day. Buying any car is a process where the buyer needs to be fully aware of the pitfalls but these guys could not be more accommodating. We're all delighted with the car so far and we would certainly use these guys again.
Richard D
Having looked at many cars over the last couple of weeks, it was refreshing to find a car which met my expectations at a realistic price. I was able to inspect and test drive the car, on my own, and without any pressure. Having decided to buy the car, I was able to pay by bank transfer, and then wait in a comfortable environment with a cup of coffee, while all the paperwork was completed, before driving the car away with 5 days insurance and 12 months warranty. Very happy with my new purchase!!!
Lisabeth M
Very professional dealer, Hi Auto was recommended by a friend and I can understand why, this was the easiest car purchase I have ever done! No pushy sales reps just friendly helpful advise and an excellent deal. The car was very well presented and everything arranged with the minimum of hassle. If you want your faith restored in good old fashioned service and a quality car at a reasonable price then in my opinion you can't get better than Hi Auto!
Barry G
We had a good idea of what car we were looking for and this one ticked all the boxes. The customer service was excellent and we felt comfortable doing business with them. We would definitely go back to them in the future.
Valerie B
Visited a few dealers before Hi Auto and they simply weren't organised and had my time. Upon Arrival all the documents were on the table. Presentation of the office and car was world class. I made up my mind to buy the car immediately. I was helped to insure car and pay the road tax immediately and drove off with the car. No cleaning or work to do. Everything was done. Give them a try first if you love value for money.
Emmanuel G
After a poor experience with another car dealer it was a pleasure to find Hi Auto. They were extremely helpful and the whole buying experience was made easy and enjoyable. We will definitely return and recommend.
Thomas T
Bought a Mondeo from Hi Auto and couldn't be happier with both the car and the service I received from Dan and Ade. I would definitely use Hi Auto again and can't recommend them highly enough,came away feeling that they really do appreciate your custom.
Joe N
Great friendly staff made the process nice and easy.
Matthew H
single mum with kiddies , and never had to buy a car before! So was not looking forward to this experience at all! dan and addy were professional, respectful and made the experience stress free . went away happy that got a good car at a competitive price, with warranty and Dan helped sort out all the tax, and ownership docs before I drove away.
Gemma D
Highly recommend hi auto! We brought a car off them today and we couldnt be happier! Great customer service, great communication just all round great company!
Claire W
I found Hi Auto an absolute pleasure to do buisness with. They are a very honest and trustworthy car sales. I came from Manchester to purchase from them. I would highly recommend them. Thanks Brian
Brian P
Ady and dan were very professional and knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble. Easy buying process, they sorted all the paperwork and tax. I just had to hand over the money and insure it. Will definitely buy from them again.
Collette V
I wouldn't go anywhere else to buy a second hand car. Dan and Ady both have a lot of experience working in some big car dealerships but they don't do the 'big sell'. The car I bought had some minor things that needed rectifying (nothing major at all) but there were no questions asked - they just sorted it. A great couple of guys who just care about customer service. Don't go anywhere else - it isn't worth the risk.
Pete C
Very professional and a great service from Dan & Ade. Everything was as described and a friendly experience. I am very happy with the result and vehicle. Highly recommend Hi Auto.
Adrian P
Great service and attitude very honest and trustworthy will use them again refreshing after all the big dealers that cannot be bothered
John S
So happy with my Mini Countryman that I've got from here :-) Dan and Ady was very genuine and extremely helpful! Could fault them one bit. Would definitely recommend! Thanks!
Georgia T
Friendly, helpful and professional dealers would recommend to family and friends interested in purchasing a used vehicle
David F
Excellent service from Dan at Hi Auto a friendly welcome and answered all my questions about the car I was interested in. Also liked the no pressure to buy . Excellent...
Steven W
Dan and Ady are very pleasant to deal with and made the process of buying a used car, simple and stress free. Their car lot is very professional and a pleasure to visit. I was left to look at the car on my own and to take it out on my own and at no time felt pressurised to buy. A fault occurred on the car soon after I bought it and it was dealt with (and paid for) by them, despite the fact that it wasn't covered by the warranty that I'd taken out. One of the best car buying experiences that I've had.
Paul B
From the moment we arrived we was looked after politely & no awkward pushy sales people. After a cup of coffee we decided to go for a test drive in the Yaris we was interested in. Dan & Ady was very friendly whilst being professional regarding our purchase. When we collected the car Dan had all the paperwork in order & explained anything we needed to know regarding the full MOT & Service arranged before we left. I would deffernatly recommend buying a car from Hi Auto, these guys work really hard & it shows. This is a great little business & they should be very proud of themselves. Well done Hi Auto ! See you again Tracy & Richard, Long Eaton
Tracy T
Huge thank you to Dan at Hi Auto who helped me find my lovely new car. No hassle just good advice and great service. Everything was done for us and collected my car within a week. Would definitely recommend Hi Auto to anyone. Many thanks Gina Goodwin
Gina G

Ross G
A super friendly place, very easy smooth process for buying a new car. Ady was fantastic with sorting everything out. Love my new car, highly recommend.
Wendy B
Ady and Dan definitely made sure we were looked after at Hi Auto. I can't fault their service and professionalism. Great car and the purchase was made so easy and stress free. I would absolutely recommended them. Thanks guys!

Anna J
Brilliant car, very trusting salesman couldn't do enough to help. Defiantly use again
Dean B
Nice and easy relaxed experience. Helpful,friendly and trustworthy. Just how it should be. I would certainly recommend them.
Graham C
Pleasant to deal with, without being pushy. A real professional transaction.
Dean P
Hi Auto were a pleasure to deal with. I bought a Ford Focus Estate from them and the process was quick and simple. I was very happy with the price after comparing elsewhere, especially with the extras that were included. I was able to put a deposit down over the phone to secure the car until I could travel up to them, they even offered to pick me up from the station, which was a nice touch. When I got there the car was in great condition and I took out additional warranty under no pressure. I have bought 2nd hand before and had problems so didn't want to take the risk. I have been driving the car for 2 weeks and it runs perfectly. I would definitely recommend Hi Auto and if I need another car in the future I will definitely check with them first.
Nick G
I was able to speak with both partners over the phone before I drove the 170 miles to view the car of my choice. From both of them conveyed an atmosphere and feeling of being genuine in their desire for the car to be right. They both appear to have an ethic and understanding of humans make business and not selling cars. In short, I trusted them. When I eventually met with Dan, the honest energy I felt over the phone was continued and genuine in person.
