A Selection of Our Happy Customers

Chris, Kevin and the Tempest4cars service team we have donated £50 to your cafe/coffee fund as a small token of our appreciation for the superb way that the Tempest service team handled the BMW X5 issues following purchase in December 2013

We feel that we are always treated as valued customers, respected and actually listened to - not just another job card to be cleared (as with so many other companies) As a result of the way that the X5 was handled we have more recently also entrusted the servicing and upkeep of our work horse BMW 525d to yourselves.

We have, and will continue to, recommend the Tempest4 cars servicing team - probably the best team around and we have been lucky enough to have found them!

Mr Sean Mengham

I have been dealing with Liam and Martin for some time now having bought several cars from them. I just had my Maserati serviced by Chris and the guys ... excellent job on a complex car and they made it so easy. The car was collected and delivered, giving amazing value when other garages wanted silly money. I will certainly be recommending your complete sale and service .... thanks again!

Mr Tim Roach

I have purchased two cars from Tempest and on both occasions I found the sales team to be very helpful and polite - not rushing you to put pen to paper! The two cars that I have bought from Tempest have both had very low mileage and were in very good condition. If I needed any work done whilst under warranty Chris in the service department was very friendly and helpful and anything that needed doing was done. I will continue to buy my cars from Tempest in the future because Iknow they are a quality company

Mr John Ellis

Brilliant company! They give sensible money for your your trade-in and they agreed to put one new tyre on the car that I purchased from them. When I went to pick it up there were four tyres - at no extra cost. I did a 160 mile round trip to them and it was worth it.

Hi Chris

I just wanted to thank you so much for everything you have done with regards fixing my BMW 1 Series. I know this is part of what i paid for when I bought the car from Tempest and all the work is covered under the warranty but you have been brilliant and went the extra mile to help and ensure everything was fixed including my key and for that I am REALLY grateful.

I really appreciated you coming out on Monday and then again on Wednesday to drop my car back. The service you have provided when I first had an issue has been great but again this has all been really re-assuring when I had to come back for a second time. I am still feeling pretty poorly and in fact had to see the doctor today so by you dealing with my car was one less stress for a sick pregnant lady!

I hope the car does not have any other issues, i won't be going far now as baby is due any time now but I know i have no worries if i do need to contact you again (fingers crossed, i don't)

You have restored my faith in the human race, it is not very often you find a genuine nice helpful person like you so thank you.

I have tried to find the director of your company to send this onto but I can't seem to find them so please pass my e-mail on to whoever this is as you deserve the recognition

I look forward to hearing from you if Tempest do decide to take on additional warranties as I would be very interested.

Anyway thanks again

Just wanted to say many thanks to you and your team for the excellent service we received when we purchased our Mercedes ML. It really was a quick and easy transaction and the car is an absolute dream.

All my friends and family now know about Tempest4Cars and the great service we received!

Dear Martin,

Just a few words to thank you all, especially Liam for making the purchase of my Toyota such a pleasant experience. You were all very kind nothing was too much trouble. See you all soon when I need a service!

Hi Eddie

Hope you are well, I am keen to tell you and your company how pleased I was from start to finish in how you dealt with my deal, I had a more expensive car to part exchange in than the one you were selling me, meaning money back!! I wanted to go cheaper as im looking to set my business up and exchanging down was never even a trouble or a concern to you, I have always bought new cars and now with the confidence you have given me I will be certainly purchasing off you in the future. I was heavily embarrassed to scratch the wing and bumper on my post at home and you sorted so quickly without making me feel like a wally even though I did lol, the guys in your paintshop did you proud. Keep up the good work and will see you when I need a service and hopefully I will not need to see the paintshop before haha

Kind Regards

Lisa Rowlands

Hi Danny and Chris in service,

I wanted to leave Tempest4Cars my positive feedback.

I have been a customer now for 4 years having recently purchased my second car from Tempest4Cars.

I decided to return as not only have I found the customer service to be outstanding but they have continued to look after me and my car whenever I needed servicing & tyres.

I can only ever say really positive things about Tempest4Cars and I will continue to tell the world, People are always so keen to leave negative feedback hence with the service I have had I feel its worth writing to you and letting you all know that you buck the trend, I felt really at home straight away with your kind and pleasant demeanour. Thank you all

Sis-in-law was looking for a Suzuki Swift and I was tasked with the job of sourcing it. I searched everywhere online like Autotrader and eBay as well as checking out our local dealers.

From a short-list, one car stood out as being very well priced and a higher spec than most of the others. Only problem was, the dealer was over 200 miles away!

Would it be worth it? Would the car turn out to be as described? Could I trust this company? As it turned out, the name actually rang a bell - I'd bought a car a couple of years back for my brother, and it was from the same company! My bro is still happily driving his Qashqai and I recalled him saying the guys at the dealer were friendly and efficient, so I decided this Swift was worth pursuing.

The guy I initially dealt with was Liam who was super-efficient, personable and honest in his dealings. The deal was done.

One 5-hour train journey later - with a friendly Tempest guy collecting me from their local station - and the car was everything I'd hope it would be. Tempest were in no hurry to release it to me the week before as they'd only just received it into stock and they insisted it went through their full PDI before handing it over - and I found the car sitting in the late-afternoon sun looking absolutely stunning.

Liam was away, but the sale was completed with complete efficiency by Eddie.

I understand Tempest's 'way' is to price their cars very competitively and not have them sitting around for silly periods. I can vouch that their price for this Swift WAS very competitive and made my journey fully worth while.

As I waited for sis to transfer the money balance, I admired some beautiful cars in their showroom (and lots more outside!); a Maserati, a couple of top-of-the-range Audis, an eye-watering Merc convertible...

But the little Suzuki Swift didn't disappoint either :-)

Thoroughly recommended.
