Testimonials for Selling

We’ve had some great client feedback for selling cars and thought we’d share some of them with you.  Take a look for yourself:

Here are some of our testimonials all of which can be verified:

Mr Jeffrey H of Brighton October 2015: I decided to go to the auction with my wife to watch my Mercedes being sold, not only did it sell for a price which exceeded my expectations but we really enjoyed ourselves , all the staff were really friendly and I had great plate of Ham, Egg and Chips.We will certainly sell our next car here and I am coming back with my mates for a breakfast one day soon.

Mr Owen D of Billingshurst October 2015: The service I received was excellent and the price achieved exceeded my expectations.

Mrs Angela B of Ramsgate June 2015. They sold my car for a lot more than I expected, I was more than pleased and will certainly use them again next time I need to sell my car.

Mr Michael C of Horsham November 2014: Having just received my cheque, I just wanted to thank you for the way you handled the sale of my car. The price was what I had come to realise was realistic, as was the agreed commission rate. Also, I was impressed with the politeness and efficiency of the Staff and the overall way in which the auction is administered, including the catalogue. I would certainly recommend Shoreham Vehicle Auctions to my friends and others.

Mr Keith A of Horley October 2014: SVA collected my Jaguar, cleaned it and sold it, what more could you ask. very impressed with the service.

Mr Gregzegorz S of Bognor Regis September 2014: I entered my Volvo for sale with a reserve of £650.00 and was very satisfied when my car sold for £800.00 and am very happy. A very professional service.

Miss Gemma D of  Lancing March 2014: I took advantage of the Free  valuation  but set my reserve at £800 which was £300 less than quoted. I was very happy and impressed with the service especially when my car sold for the original valuation  of £1100. I will certainly use them again.

Mr Chris T of Uckfield November 2013: Not having sold a car at auction before I used the Free valuation service although I did advise the auctioneer I wanted £1500 for my Audi A3, he advised me to place a reserve of £2500. I took his advice and was very happy with the result as the car sold for £3250, way above my expectations.

Mr Andy K of Brighton August 2013 :I was offered £3000 for my Smart car by a well-known On line car buyer but decided I had nothing to lose taking Shoreham Vehicle Auctions up on the offer of a Free entry. If it didn’t sell I knew I could take it to them so  I set the reserve at £3000 knowing the On line buyer might negotiate the price down. My car sold for £3575 so even after charges I was much better off, need I say more.

Miss Amanda O of Brighton May 2013:When I decided to sell my MX-5 at auction, I used the free online valuation service and was delighted when the car actually sold for more than twice this.  The whole process was made very easy by the friendly staff who took care of all the paperwork.

Miss Nicola VDB of Bognor Regis February 2013. Selling my Astra was a very nice, easy experience, Shoreham Vehicle Auctions took all the stress and strain out of selling a vehicle plus it fetched more than I expected.

Mr Martin P of Haywards Heath January 2013 : Having had the Jaguar from new for nearly 9 years I was concerned about the selling this family favourite! From the word go I received guidance from the SVA staff in completing the paper work and setting a reserve. I was immediately advised early Tuesday on the result of the Monday evening when a very satisfactory price was achieved. Of course SVA is now at Lancing rather than Shoreham and furthermore it should called  –  SURECAN AUCTION VEHICLES Ltd.

Mr David L of Brighton September 2012. I took advantage of the Free valuation service and sold my old Astra for more than twice the price I expected. I was highly delighted, the service was 100% professional and it was an enjoyable experience from start to finish.

Mr A of Brighton. September 2012. I sold my car using the Free valuation and don’t think I would have got any more privately. It was easy to enter and made more than reserve price.

Mr H of Heathfield. September 2012. I sold my VW Beetle convertible for exactly what I expected and in line with the Free valuation. The whole experience was smashing, all the staff were smiling and attentive it is a slick operation.

Mr Richard R of East Preston. July 2012. We were offered £1200.00 for our 54 plate Fiesta  by a well known On line car buyer which we felt was a little low, the auctioneer at Shoreham Vehicle Auctions advised a reserve of £1650.00 and since there was no charge if my car did not sell I left it for sale. Imagine my surprise when it sold for £2500.00 which I think even surprised the auctioneers as well but they explained this often happens if you put your car into the open market. We could not have been happier.

Mr David A of Henfield. June 2012 Following our purchase of a nearly new Honda Civic from SVA, Alan & his team sold our BMW for £1300 more than we were offered by the local Honda dealer as a part-ex! Needless to say we were delighted by the whole experience.

Mr O of Shoreham by Sea .June 2012 I was offered £105.00 by an On line buyer of cars for my Mondeo when a friend advised I try the auction. I put a £375.00 reserve and it sold for £625.00. I was delighted as the money is going towards a holiday with my wife.

Mr H of Brighton. March 2012 I have never been more pleased or impressed with any service in the UK as I have with your company. From day one you personally handled absolutely everything for me from a Free valuation on my 1995 BMW which obtained £800 which was £100 more than reserve, you picked my car up the next day and Bill, your collector, was charming, you ‘phoned and discussed the car with me then ‘phoned me again to inform me the car was sold. In this day and age what a pleasure this has been, nobody should bother with the headache of showing their car for maybe an extra few pounds.

Lucy & Terry of Rotherfield. January 2012 We were thrilled with the professional service provided from the staff at Shoreham Vehicle Auctions – from start to finish they kept up informed with everything every step of the sale!

Mr H of Brighton  November 2011 We hear that the elderly Daihatsu MPV we brought along last Friday;(more in hope than anticipation) sold in your Monday Auction. This was our first entry at S.V.A.  The experience was friendly,trouble free from start to finish,and quick  Not to mention that the hammer price achieved was more than double our expectations! Well done-thank you.

Mr D L of Pulborough. October 2011 I took advantage of the FREE valuation but set my reserve £800 less because I did not think it would fetch any more. I was “gobsmacked” when I was told my car had sold for £800 more than reserve which was actually in line with the original valuation. What more can I say?

Mr N B of West Wittering. March 2011 The staff at SVA made the whole experience of selling our Mercedes SLK very easy, they could not have been more helpful.

Mr P H of Littlehampton.  February 2011 Thank you very much for the courtesy and general help and service of Shoreham Vehicle Auctions. It is evidence of the high standards of SVA. One could not hope for better.

Mr C D of Barnham.  February 2011 We were pleasantly surprised at the attention we were shown on arrival, and more importantly our Seat sold for nearly twice our expectation.

Mr J W of Henfield. February 2011 The sale of my much loved Subaru Imprezza was handled with a great deal of consideration and for a price in excess of my reserve.
