What our customers are saying
The gents at Smarter Cars were really friendly and helpful from the beginning. They were very careful to observe all social distancing guidelines and were really happy to let me test drive the car. The car was exceptionally clean and in really good condition. They let me check over the car for as long as I wanted to, without any pushy sales tactics. They gave me the car with a full MOT and even sorted out a few minor scratches. They even took the time to advise me on how to look after the car and avoid issues that often crop up with my particular model. They delivered the car to me for free due to lockdown and I'm very happy with my purchase. They sorted out all the road tax and it was completely ready to go. Whether you're buying your first car as I was, or more experienced, I would definitely give Smarter Cars a look. BMW 1 series 118D (E87)
★★★★★ Exceptional service and a top quality car
Good experience. Had the opportunity to test drive (pre lockdown) and get somebody to give the car a look over. Have already used this seller before (previous owner) with good results so that's why we went back.
★★★★★ Purchase of Volkswagen Golf
I bought my Audi TT from Tony at smarter cars 1 week ago, I found Tony to be honest a reliable and not like the run of the mill car dealers (only interested in the sell) but actually wants to and achieves to deliver a quality car and a professional service. I would certainly recommend Tony and smarter cars, to friends and family, and would have no hesitation in buying another car from him in due course. A very professional friendly service.
★★★★ Review of smarter cars.
I am honestly so pleased I purchased my car from smarter cars! I was initially quite nervous about buying a second hand car but as soon as I spoke to the owner, he quickly diminished any worries I had! What a genuine, lovely man. He let me test drive the car without any hesitation and sent me on quite a long route, which in my opinion made it quite clear he was confident all his cars were reliable and had no problems! He put a new mot on my car and the customer service was second to none, he called when he said he would, my car was also ready earlier than expected (and immaculate when I picked it up). Smarter cars clearly care about their customers and reputation. If I ever find myself wanting to buy another car I certainly will not hesitate to return! I will be recommending to all my family & friends! Thank you! You definitely deserve more than 5 stars!
Tony made buying our car a good smooth experience. It was brilliant to be able to have a really good long test drive without the hard sell. He was also very flexible in helping to change the date for an early date to pick the car up once purchased.
★★★★★ A job made easy.
It was a great pleasure to buy a car from Smarter cars. I was able to make a same day appointment and purchase. I was made feel very welcome and ensured that I was told about the cars history - which is important to me, buying a used car - and was able to take it for a test drive. The customer service was excellent, I was kept informed at every stage of the process and was even given useful advice about selling my car. I never felt under pressure to buy and was treated with respect. Thank you for all your help ! I'll be returning next year when my daughter passes her test !
★★★★★ Excellent used car sales
Very helpful and an enjoyable experience. Liked that we were allowed to test drive the car by ourselves. Fantastic service.
★★★★★ Great Experience
My experience of buying a car from this company was excellent. Sales person was very helpful and informative nothing was too much trouble. A great service from a small family company
★★★★★ Great experience would highly recommend
Smarter Cars was absolutely amazing 😁 salesman was friendly, professional, not at all pushy for sale of the car, informative, helpful,. Paperwork quick and efficient Amazing stress free car hunting for me which was lovely. I bought a lovely little Mini Cooper from Smarter Cars at a good price, with a new MOT, and a three month warranty. It is an amazing little car, just right for me 😁 🌟 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Service from these guys, would definitely recommend them 😁
★★★★★ My purchase of a Mini Cooper from Smarter Cars
Smarter Cars were absolutely fantastic, they contacted me very quickly from my initial contact, the car was exactly as seen in the pictures, a beautifully maintained and cared for car with very little cosmetic damage and mechanically sound engine. They even delivered the car to me which I found exceptional service from these guys and they were very professional and nice guys. They were very willing to go above and beyond and really care for their customers so I would undoubtedly and wholeheartedly recommend Smarter Cars to anyone in a heartbeat. Payment by BACS was quick and easy. The only faults that I can give is that I had found that the car had a small chip in the windscreen on the drivers side and all 4 tyres though legal were worn and required replacing which I promptly did but for a second hand car in such amazing condition, I am not complaining as this can be expected. Overall so far very pleased and happy with my purchase. Drives like a dream. Great dealer, recommended!
★★★★★ Highly recommend these guys

I highly recommend Smarter Cats, bought a Mini Cooper over the phone as I live too far away to pop down. Gave me a fair price for my part exchange.

I’d happily buy another car from them. Thanks again!

★★★★★ Very helpful and honest service
Smarter Cars, what a gem this car dealers is.. From initial call to them to ask for a test drive right through to collection a week later, the service and detail involved in the sale has been meticulously taken care of very smoothly and efficiently.. Thank you also for the personal touch of picking myself and my daughter up from Chichester Railway Station and taking us to your showroom etc, rather than us take a bus or taxi.. All of the help and everything to do with my purchase has been very graciously received.. If there were more stars there, there would be more ticked... Thank you all.. Ros

★★★★★ Excellent service
Tony at Smarter Cars was so great and helpful. He has a very friendly approach and isn’t your typical ‘pushy’ salesman which is a breath of fresh air. Because of the current situation he ensured protocols were followed by providing gloves when inspecting the vehicle. My car was given a new MOT and delivered to my door for me, it was even wiped down inside for safety. Overall very pleased with the experience. Would recommended this garage.
★★★★★ Pleasant and friendly experience. Would recommend
Extremely friendly, professional and helpful business, gave support with the finance advise.. at unbelievable low rates and made the whole process relaxed without any commitment or feeling of being pressured. I would without doubt genuinely recommend Smarter Cars to anyone searching for a vehicle.
Great experience , if you want to buy and trade in , you will be given honest answers and non of the usuall waffle. Totally straight with his answers and genuinely wants you to get the best car for your needs , highly recommend
★★★★★ Buying my new mini
Really good easy experience! No pressure just as much time as I wanted
★★★★★ ★★★★★ Great experience
The proprietor was very professional Very helpful and a very approachable person. His goal was our satisfaction and this was seen in how he communicated the extras (air con pump for eg). He provided to the vehicle. For example at test drive and collection he personally anti virus sprayed the interior of the car No problem. Adding that this was his duty. In all we would definitely go to him again and would recommend anybody looking for a car wouldn’t be wrong to go and talk to him. Cheers To them at Smarter Cars
★★★★★ Vauxhall Zafira
Smarter Cars were amazing. My lovely yellow Fiat 500 got delivered to the door today - great contactless delivery with a full wipe down and airing delay before I got to test the new wheels. It drives great and is going to be the perfect London lockdown car. Smarter Cars were great communicators and made me feel confident through the whole process that it was safe to buy and would be a good buy as well. They made sure that it was pristine and everything was on point and even made up a second key for me along with the year's MOT. They supported the registration and taxing remotely so I was free to drive off and park in a residential bay the second it arrived (after leaving it to safely air). A friend test drove it before I bought it and had a great experience with Smarter Cars too. Highly recommend and thanks to all!
★★★★★ Great car, Great Service – Best Lockdown purchase
Visited Smarter Cars during the corona-virus restrictions. Tony had the car ready for me to test drive when i arrived having anti backed the inside of the vehicle, he supplied me with a mask and gloves so i could test drive the car on my own. At all times we kept a 2m distance and when sorting out paper work it was done opposite sides of a screen. Picked up the car today, he had completed all works discussed before purchase. Lovely little car. Warm and friendly service, not pushy. Delighted customer.
★★★★★ Excellent service
This company is incredible! Having bought my car in a global pandemic lockdown I was blown away by the level of proficiency and cleanliness that I witnessed. I was informed the car would be sterilised inside and out before I viewed it, and you could tell it had been. Upon arrival we were offered gloves, hand sanitiser and face masks, all from a 2m distance. The lovely gentleman that I dealt with was willing to go above and beyond to help me make the right decision. I even got it delivered to my door for free! Before delivery there was a brand new MOT done on the car with the reassurance that any advisories would be taken care of. We then arranged a delivery day at my convenience, I paid the tax over the phone and had the V5 sorted out for me - amazing! The car was then sterilised again before AND after delivery. Honestly I'm over the moon with these guys, their company standards and my dream car! I'll definitely be back for my next car! These are genuine people selling beautiful cars.
★★★★★ Absolutely incredible experience!!
I was extremely impressed with this small garage. So helpful in my hour of need. Due to problems with my old car I had to buy another. Clean and helpful social distancing adhered to quick and efficient. Nothing but praise for them. The car I bought was MOT'd and all advisories were rectified.. beautiful car, great service, top value. I can't recommend them enough.

A family run business who were extremely helpful and professional. Excellent service and very quick turnaround from time of buying until time of collecting car. Completely Covid 19 compliant with distancing during transactions together with hand sanitiser, gloves, masks and disinfectant provided. Couldn't fault anything! Would highly recommend this garage to anyone and would definitely buy from there again!
★★★★★ Excellent all round service!
An excellent car well presented. In these difficult times the dealer was great. Viewing by appointment and outside only. To be sure of social distancing a test drive was 'solo'. Collection after prep was again by appointment with payment by bank transfer. All in all well handled. Recommended seller.
★★★★★ Essential new car for mum.
We had a great experience with Smarter Cars and they were extremely helpful. They kept us up to date throughout the process even in these uncertain times! The car was immaculate when we collected 🙂 Would definitely recommend.

Excellent service from start to finish. I really felt like a valued customer and would thoroughly recommend Smarter Cars to all. Really pleased with my new purchase which had been prepared to an extremely high standard. Thank you for making this a great buying experience.
★★★★★ What a great place to buy a car!
having purchased a lovely Skoda Yeti Auto from Smarter Cars I was very disappointed when the gearbox developed a fault. When I informed them about it they recovered the car, supplied a courtesy car and fixed the problem( VW known fault) all within 10 days. It is wonderful to find a garage with some integrity these days and I cannot recommend them enough. Definite 5 stars!!
★★★★★ rectifying gearbox fault
Here at Smarter Cars I was greeted by the owner Tony, who was very helpful, fast & efficient. I would highly recommend doing business with this dealer. Great family business in which I will be advising my fellow family and friends to trade with.
★★★★★ Only smart people shop at Smartercars
Excellent service from start to finish. There is always a worry buying a second hand car but I feel 100% confidence in my new car having bought it from Smarter Cars. The warranty and the work carried out before my purchase made a real difference. Thank you I love my new car!
★★★★★ Great service and car
Brilliant service from start to finish. We originally went in to find a replacement for our small car owing to a new addition to the family. Great help in finding cars that worked, and was incredibly helpful and accommodating in swapping private plate across to the new car. Will certainly recommend to any local person looking for a car.
★★★★★ Excellent service from start to finish

Good efficient service
I visited this garage to view a car for my Son, who is learning to drive. Tony the owner was very helpful and most importantly trustworthy. The car was in good condition as described and a new MOT, service and cleaned prior to driving off the forecourt. I would highly recommend this garage/seller for anyone looking for a second-hand car.
Nicolla Mini Purchase 8/2/2020
Purchased excellent condition car (used Zafira), Smarter Cars service was equally brilliant. Friendly & welcoming atmosphere, no pressure discussion & fair negotiation. Car was cleaned, MOT/serviced & fueled for collection. Highly recommended.
Jack Vauhall Zafira 22/12/2019
The whole situation of buying a car was made easier by the very helpful staff at Smarter Cars. All questions was answered and the car was beautifully cleaned and set up ready to drive away. Would use them again.
This is the 2nd time we have used Smarter Cars and they were as professional this time as last. We saw a couple of Honda CRV's on the forecourt, which we viewed and then decided to take one for a test drive. They were very helpful. After the test drive we negotiated a deal and paid a deposit. The car was ready within a few days. We had an interior light problem, but that was fixed very quickly. Very happy with the car.
Excellent Garage to Buy Used Cars From
Went to buy a Nissan X TRAIL saw this HONDA STEPWAGON and loved it .Tony is a great bloke and very fair. I would definitely go back again
Very pleased with the customer service
We Purchased our little run around in 2017 over a year ago. We have noticed the new website and wanted to post praise/feed back of our experience of dealing with our local friendly garage. We Purchased out little run around over a year ago and since then we have covered over 10,000 miles with no problems. We also put the Daihatsu through its next M.O.T. and it passed with flying colours. We cant praise the owner & staff highly enough. Very polite, friendly and can never do enough for you. HIGHLY, HIGHLY Recommend this little family business to anyone.
