Testimonials from customers buying cars at auction all of which can be verified:

Mr & Mrs C of Worthing October 2015: We have been buying at auction for 30 years and can honestly say Shoreham beats anywhere.

Mr Robert B of Worthing June 2015: I bought a car for over £14000 so I was a little nervy but they create an excellent service and a nice atmosphere and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience quite apart from saving a couple of thousand pounds, I will certainly buy my next car from them.

Mr M of Crawley June 2014: It was our first time and we were very happy plus we got  the car we wanted.

Mrs  S of Worthing June 2014: No need to be nervous it was a pleasant experience  very very absorbing and a great result.

Mr K of Shoreham by Sea April 2014: Thank you to yourself and excellent staff for all your assistance in making our experience at Shoreham Car Auctions so successful.  My husband bid successfully at your auction and found all your staff so helpful.  The offer of 7 days insurance was also very helpful – enabling us to move our new vehicle on the same day.  We would recommend your services to anyone seeking a new vehicle.

I think our son will be back at your auctions this week – as he is needing a new car now too – having successfully sold his previous car with you a few months back.

Mrs Karen G of Worthing March 2014: I had never been to a car auction before and have to say that with every query and problem I had  I was always dealt with in a courteous manner. The staff always tried to resolve any issues and I am hoping I will be very happy the MGTF I bought.

Mr Gary C of Arundel October 2013: I would just like to say a really big thank you to Shoreham Vehicle Auction and especially to Alan in relation to a vehicle that I purchased from their recent commercial vehicle auction.  It was sold as seen  but we noticed on the way home a whining noise coming from the vehicle.  We informed the auction straight away and they asked us to take it to a garage for investigation.  It turned out to be an internal gear box issue which would have been a very expensive repair for my company to incur. I informed Alan and he asked me to bare with him while he made some calls.  He kept me well informed with a number of phone calls back and I was more than delighted that his client was willing to pay a substantial amount towards the repair.

I would not hesitate to recommend and use Shoreham Vehicle Auctions.

Once again THANK YOU!!

Mr Peter D of Worthing August 2013; I bought a Sherpa van from the old site back in the eighties which I drove all over Scotland and have bought a further four cars since, the latest being a 10 plate Yaris which is excellent. I have never had a problem and would recommend Shoreham Auction to anyone.

Mrs Pam C of Rottingdean June 2013: I  thought I would just  let you know that I am really pleased with car. I know you must hate it when the general public come down to buy but I still cant believe how helpful everyone was from yourself, Heather, accounts, to the guy who took me out for quick test drive and the driver who delivered the car on the Monday. In fact I think its quite ironic that the service and help I got far exceeded anything I have ever experienced with Main Dealers. I must tell all my friends that in future they should forget buying from fancy dealerships and instead get down to Shoreham for their next car!

Mr & Mrs C of Angmering May 2013: We were complete novices and did not have a clue but it was easy and fun plus we got a bargain at the end of the day.

Mr Oliver B of Brighton March 2013. Even on a freezing cold night the auctioneers worked hard to make the process very easy. I bought a main agent part exchange Ford Fusion for £1400 and it is fantastic I would recommend Shoreham Auctions to everyone.


Mr Bradley C of Peacehaven July 2012. I purchased a Toyota Previa a few days ago which I am extremely happy with.  I had my Father with me who has Dementia.  I wasn’t sure that taking my Father was a good idea, but as I’m his carer I didn’t have a choice.  The prospect of my Dad getting confused and bidding for a car terrified me.The staff seemed very approachable and friendly, so I took the decision to inform them of my predicament.  They were very sympathetic and couldn’t have been more helpful !! 

Everything went to plan…….. I ended up with a superb car at a great price.  More importantly my Dad didn’t.I will definitely be coming back to get my next car from Shoreham Vehicle Auctions, and look forward to coming back.  Thank you all.

Mr David A of Henfield. June 2012. A private buyer/seller is often intimidated by the thought of using an auction. From my recent experience with SVA I would say that this is probably the easiest way to buy a car and I hope sell one, as they are putting my old car in for auction next week. Alan and his team could not have been more helpful, making the process very simple. My tip would be to speak to the team, tell them exactly what you want and relax.

Mr Keith R of R&H Ltd Bognor Regis. May 2012. Like the set up a lot,it’s a pleasure dealing with the team, from buying,collection to payment and collecting keys and gone.

Miss R of Horam, Surrey. May 2012. I bought an Astra in a Motability sale and was a little concerned as it was the first time I had bought a car at an auction. Everyone though was very friendly and gave me the assurance I needed, I felt I could trust them. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Mr R of Hove. March 2012  From the beginning to end every person I met from drivers to senior management you could not wish for better service. I really mean it.

Mr G of  Worthing December 2011. I bought my last car at Shoreham 6 years ago and never had a problem, I have now bought another and recommend to all my friends they do the same.

Mr Robert J of Uckfield. September 2011 I have bought 3 cars now from Shoreham, the last being a BMW 740i which is absolutely superb. I would recommend Shoreham Vehicle Auctions to anybody.

Mr M from Worthing July 2011 I have been buying my cars from Shoreham Car Auctions for over 25 years and never had a problem, the recent improvements to the website are really impressive, Excellent.

Ms C from Lancing July 2011 I bought a car and was very disappointed with it, after speaking to management they were very understanding and helped me re sell it allowing me then to buy another. My dealings with the auction as a lone female were second to none and I would highly recommend them.
