Michelle (Autotrader)
Outstanding service! Local family run business and the personalised service received reflects this. Was recommended here by a friend as these guys specialise in low mileage vehicles. Ecstatic with the deal I received & I love my new car! Thank you very much!!! Would recommend to anyone.
Jayde (Autotrader)
I was looking to buy a car and getting fed up of pushy sales men with the sales patter n spiel. When I came across G W Holmes & Son A fantastic dealership. The sales person is a true asset to the place creating a relaxed atmosphere. Putting you at ease. I will definitely be using G W Holmes & Son again. Thumbs up from us guys.
John Ford Transit
Absolutely recommend G W Holmes and Son Everyone was incredibly helpful and friendly (even when they were standing out in snowy cold weather!) Our sales person, Thomas was really knowledgeable and informative. We had a great test drive and put down a deposit for same car afterwards. Thank you to all involved!
Anthony (Ford Transit Custom) Autotrader
I've just bought a vehicle from G W Holmes & Son and can honestly say after years of buying cars and vans this is the most honest person I've dealt with , the vehicle is exactly as advertised and was in excellent condition , he is very knowledgeable person about the motor trade but does not push you into anything its a shame all motor vehicle dealers are not like him , I would reccomend G W Holmes & Son to anyone .. thank you again
Mr Blake Honda CR-V
Excellent family business, bought a Honda CRV, couldn't be more pleased from start to finish! Thomas is a real gent and nothing is too much trouble and he's not pushy. Real family run atmosphere. If you're worried about spending your hard earned cash on a banger, don't be - 100% great experience."

The young man who dealt with us was a pleasure to deal with, very efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. It's rare to see such customer service nowadays, this is a genuine family run business ,you will be well looked after here. Highly recommended. - Thank you."
Ben Ford Transit Connect
I purchased a Ford Transit Connect from Thomas at G W Holmes & Son and I have to say I had a great experience from start to finish.
PRE-SALE...After a test drive I asked for a few minor points to be addressed before purchase and Thomas agreed without question.
DURING...We agreed a day to collect and when I returned Thomas put the van up on the ramp and showed me all the work had been done, he'd put 12 months MOT on it and even put in a full tank of diesel!
AFTERSALES...A couple of days after getting the van home I had an unforeseen problem with it and again Thomas could have not been more helpful, I booked it in to my local garage and Thomas liaised with them and paid for all the work to be carried out.
Thank Again 👍
Mr Straughton
Fantastic to deal with, open and honest, outgoing and accurate with the description of the car. They even delivered the vehicle to me and it wasn't an issue or too much trouble. Car was mot'd and serviced prior to me getting it and all went smoothly. Would highly recommend this dealer."

I picked my new car up today and the service I received was fantastic nothing was a problem fir thomas even did the paper work I would highly recommend to friends and family can't thank you enough x
Bill Holmes Ford Fiesta
I really couldn\'t fault the service that I received from Thomas. As I was buying the car for my elderly father-in-law who lives some distance away from me it was important that the car was sound. If my experience was anything to go by I cannot fault the service and the quality of the vehicle. I would recommend this garage to anyone looking for a quality used car and a service to match
Mr and Mrs Griffin Renault Clio

Bridget Strawbridge Ford Fusion
I've just had the best car buying experience ever. Thank you.
To anyone reading this..... I've been looking for the right car since mine was written off last year (when I wasn't even in it) and searching for a replacement has been a nightmare. To cut a long story short, we finally found the right car on-line at G.W Holmes & Son's garage in Durham... and they have just delivered it all the way to Shaftesbury in Dorset. The car ended up being a better price including delivery than buying the same car (same age, mileage etc) locally.
The main thing though, has been the service. It has been second to none and I am being truthful when I say we would look first at this garage when we next need a car, wherever in the UK we live.
It's so nice to find a (family) business with good old fashioned values that you can trust.
I don't usually leave feedback on things I buy, because I'm too pushed for time, but this was too good an experience not to write about!
Thank you G.W.Holmes & Son Quality Used Cars

As a first time car buyer I couldn't be happier with this Garage or recommend the team there more highly!! I have experienced brilliant service from buying the car to any little thing now!! It's 100% worth looking here if you're after a car/have any problems with your own, they're all absolute stars!! Definitely would buy another car from here in the future!
Sandra Vauxhall Corsa Automatic
After such a struggle to find a good automatic car I visited the garage he opened up for me on a Sunday morning as that was the only time I could get down and on the Monday night he delivered me the car with 12 months MOT and they had serviced the car for me absolute pleasure to deal with made my whole process so relaxing and hassle free THANKYOU 5*****
