Testimonials

Message received from a Sussex Classics Workshop customer.

Dear Stewart, just to say many thanks for all of the work carried out on the Rover this week by you and Sean.
The gearchange is certainly now as it should be and much as I hoped it would be. It is a pleasure to deal with people who
genuinely care for the cars and take such an interest in them, as this is certainly not always the case.
 

I look forward to my next visit to Sussex Classics.

All the best Simon

 

Angelo purchased a Fiat 600D from Sussex Classics

Many thanks for the safe delivery of my Fiat 600D. I am very pleased with the car.
It is in very good order, however, like all cars of this age, needs further cosmetic and other improvements.
This is in a way, the interesting and weirdly, exciting bit.
 

I have driven it twice now. It drives very well, and everything works! It is as I remembered it when my family had one many years ago.
In 1965, my father bought a 1963 Fiat 600D as a second car. My mother used it as her daily driver (incl the school run).
Through the years, everyone learned to drive in it. I used it for four years whilst at university.
Unfortunately, after 38 years in the family, we sold it in 2003!

Btw, our first car was an Austin A34. My next target is a British car e.g. a MG MGB GT.

Many thanks again!
Best regards, Angelo

 

Message received from the Samsung tablet of a local resident in Crawley Down.

Believe me when I say, that there is nothing I would like more than to be able to sit down at my kitchen table and pen a testimonial,
for a recently purchased classic car from Sussex Classics. Instead I, along with many other villagers in Crawley Down, I have to make do by
driving slowly past the forecourt, with tongue hanging out and with the words I used to, or my Dad used to, drive one of those, back in the day.
 

For that reason and that reason only, I thank you for just being there and allowing me the opportunity to forget the new sofa, washing machine
and lounge carpet, which for some unexplainable reason my wife thinks takes priority over a 1991 Mercedes 190e Auto with only 88,000 miles
on the clock and a full service history, which I see has now been 'SOLD'.
 

Ah Well, looks like I have written a sort of testimonial after all.

Text following a visit by Charlie to our workshop with his Triumph Dolomite Sprint
on which we carried out some modifications on the suspension.

Big thank you Stewart & Shaun for the work you have done on my Dolly Sprint,
superb drive home, incredible handling for a 42 year old, that's the car not me!!
I will call you when I have the sills etc. Cheers all at Sussex Classics,
Charlie

 

Mr McCrae purchased an Austin A55 Cambridge from Sussex Classics, unviewed and based on our description.

Stewart was excellent to deal with from my first enquiry, to the safe transportation and delivery of the A55 Austin Cambridge.
The car was delivered on time as promised by Stewart and I am delighted with the condition,
both in relation of bodywork and mechanical operation of my new classic.
I would thoroughly recommend Sussex Classics Ltd to anyone looking for a quality classic, trust worthy staff and outstanding customer service.

Neil Castle purchased a 1950 Rover Cyclops from Sussex Classics

I was delighted with the service from Stewart and Shaun at Sussex Classics. When I came to view,
they left me alone and give me as much time as I wanted to give the car a thorough looking over.
I was able to take the car for a long test drive and when it came to making my mind up there was no pressure.
The transaction itself was very smooth and the car was fully prepared and ready to pick up as arranged a few days later.
The car is a delight to drive. I set off from Sussex Classic to motor through the West Sussex Countryside
very happily on a sunny spring morning in my newly acquired Rover Cyclops.
 
I rarely recommend a dealer, but I was able to purchase a very nice, rare car at a very fair price from Sussex Classics.
I would happily recommend anyone give Stewart a call if you are thinking of buying through a dealer.
And here she is stopping in the woods near Midhurst for a photo opportunity!

Mike. Purchased a 1935 Morris 8 S1 from Sussex Classics

Thank you Stewart and Shaun for all your help, advice and expertise in my recent purchase of my 1935 Morris 8 S1.
Your honesty, integrity and good humour made the purchase such an easy decision, and being classic enthusiasts yourselves
ensured that I very quickly realised that I was dealing with people that have that all-too-rare quality these days - trustworthiness.

The car was exactly as described, and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone
contemplating owning a classic vehicle.
 

Rest assured I will be back to Sussex Classics if and when the Morris needs another good home and I am looking for another classic car.
Thanks again, Mike

GOOD TO DEAL WITH SUCH HONEST AND FRIENDLY PEOPLE.
     MANY THANKS.

Peter Waller purchased an Austin A30 unviewed in March 2014

Good morning Stewart. Sorry for not contacting you sooner.
Regarding the Austin A 30 I purchased from you. I contacted you as I was nearly 300 miles away, you gave me all the answers to my questions plus other information about the car. The details were correct as you described. Delivery was arranged by you and it arrived as promised at almost the time you said. Delivery chaps were very helpful. A pleasant transaction.
Thank you.
Peter Waller. Cornwall

 

Sussex Classics sold Les and Maureen's classic car on a commission basis.

Dear Stewart,
The money has successfully transferred into our Building Society account. We would like to thank you for sale of our classic car.
The whole procedure has been very professional and friendly. The advertisements were accurate, honest and reached a vast market.
The sale happened within a short time scale and the money was in our account immediately.
 We would recommend Stewart at Sussex Classics to anyone who is thinking of selling their classic car as the whole process has been hassle free.
It has been great doing business with you.
 Thanks again.
Kind regards,
Les and Maureen

 

Mike. Sussex Classics sold his classic car for him.

Hi Stewart,
just a quick note: Bank transaction went through ok on the day you said.
 I like to say that this ( Stewart & co ) does exactly what he says on the tin,
you get all the knowledge and advertising of how to sell a classic car.
Brilliant service will be back in near future.
 Regards Mike

 

Andy. Purchased Holden June 2013

I was interested to see that Classic Car Buyer had finally featured the Holden this week ! She (Lady Penelope) attended her first classic show 2 weeks ago at the Old Gaffers festival in Yarmouth here on the Island and caused quite a stir. I wondered what the response had been like to the featured article? She is still proving reliable around town although a lot of the oil seals seem to be giving up . Probably a sign it may of been in storage for a while. Parts are plenty in OZ and I am still very pleased with my purchase.
Thank you again for your service.

 

Tony Edwards (Devon). Purchased 1956 Morris Minor June 2013

Never purchased a vehicle blind over the internet before. I telephoned and spoke to Stewart (an actual person) he talked me through the car and its history, he looked at all the points I asked about. I purchased the car there and then on Monday (later afternoon), Stewart sorted out the delivery and phoned me back and advised me that it would be delivered on Wednesday (the same week). The car arrived and I am over the moon with the 1956 Minor, the vehicle is as described over the phone. Good honest service. Thanks Stewart and Mick (deliver driver).
Would deal with again.

 

Andy Melville. Purchased Rover P6 May 2013

Dear Stewart,
I have had a problem with my computer and was not able to email,so I have sent a letter.
I am very pleased with the Rover. Would like to say that I was very pleased with the service and your colleague was extremely helpful when I had a slight problem with starting (its ok now). Would be glad to do business again in the future.
Many Thanks

Adam Clemens. Purchased Morris Minor October 2012

Dear Stewart,
Many thanks indeed for all your help. The Morris 1000 is  exactly as described by you and drives beautifully and is exactly what I was  looking for as regards, price condition etc. A few small mods are  planned, such as alternator, halogen headlights, hazard lights  etc. Based on my experiences I  would strongly recommend your outfit to anyone.

Mr John Kevan (France). Purchased Austin A40 June 2012

Although you probably won't remember, it’s exactly a year ago today that I purchased my Austin A40 from you and as I’ve not contacted you since I let you know I’d arrived home without any problems I thought I’d write today to let you know how pleased I was with everything when I bought the car and how pleased I’ve been with the car ever since.........click to view the rest of Mr. Kevan's letter

 

Mr Cliff Pope (Wales). Purchased Triumph 2000 Mk1 (unviewed internet sale) December 2011

Everything is fine, and I am delighted with the car. Exemplary customer relations and impressive attention to detail.
I particularly liked your readiness to photograph selected details, and the impromptu phone conversation with your collegue
as he was walking around under the car. Best wishes Cliff Pope.

 

Mr Cranch (Cornwall). Purchased Austin Maxi (unviewed internet sale) September 2011

For a car at the price I paid, I feel that this was much as described a "bargain at the price", and delivery was prompt and trouble free.
Thank you for your polite approach and service.

 

Peter Beckett (Epsom, Surrey). Purchased Rover P4 95 June 2011

An enjoyable transaction. Stewart is clearly an old car enthusiast. Known faults were fixed within the price, with no quibbles.
I feel he is a dealer who you can trust.

 

John Furber (Crawley, West Sussex). Purchased Ford Popular 100E June 2011

I found the service very good. I think by moving to new premises, which I understand is very soon, people will be able to see
what is on the market. Thanks for everything, very very pleased with the Ford Popular.
