I found honest and staightforward talking at Whitegate Motors. Acknowledged on arrival but not pushed in any way while looking at the vehicles in stock. I was advised that any help would be forthcoming if I needed it then left to browse. When I found a car of interest I asked for advice and my questions were answered without any bleating about the features and benefits of the car. I was not whisked away with a tentecal round my neck to rhe sales desk. I was shown the vehicle from all angles and every nook and cranny. Listened to the engine, was offered a test drive and was given a crash course on how things worked. In all this time I was under no pressure to buy. I had, however, made up my mind much earlier that this was the car for me. I said I would like to buy it and was then escorted to the salesroom where I was offered either tea or coffee. Even here I was given the complete history of the vehicle before I signed the documents. Thank you Peter and everyone at Whitegate Motors.

Who knew that buying a car could be such an enjoyable experience! Peter was knowledgeable about all the vehicles and was readily available with the information but there was no pressure to buy. It was such friendly, relaxed atmosphere and I\'m so pleased I bought my new car there. Many thanks to the team but especially to Peter for the best in customer service and for the best cars.

I am so happy with my lovely new car, bought at Whitegate Motors!. If I had to rate the service,....it would be 10 out of 10 for all aspects of my experience. Peter is really helpful, but doesn\'t try to push you into any thing. I can honestly say that I have never had such a pleasurable experience when buying a car. I recommend any one who is looking for a great deal, friendly reliable service, and those finishing touches (that make such a difference) to go to Peter at Whitegate Motors. I wish I had used this garage previously. Go and see for yourself, for stress free service with a smile.
Chris C
If you are looking for a quality car, Whitegate Motors are the ones to use. Peter was extremely accommodating on a bank holiday for me and a joy to do business with. My car was supplied with a full 12 month MOT, oil and filter service and extra touches that makes me fully appreciative of the extra mile Whitegate Motors goes for its customers. I hope the business continues to enjoy the success it truly deserves.
Daniel H

Just recently bought my Ford Focus Blue 3 days ago and I was so happy to view this car as it was I left the best till last on the day.Peter was so accommodating for us to view on a Sunday & we had a deal.It was my best ever experienced buying a car over the many years from start till I have driven my new car away with 12 months MOT, Service Stamp, & Peter even did my Road Tax on the day with a Bottle of Red Wine to celebrate.I can\'t ask for more. What an excellent customer service. I know where to go in the future and I highly recommend Whitegate Motors for your vehicle needs. It\'s 10 out 10 for me. Cheers..!! A huge Thank You once again Peter & wish you more success in your business.
Christine B
Delighted with my car purchase.Definitely five stars from me. Peter is so helpful, trustworthy, easy to deal with and ensures that everything is as it should be before you drive away! I came away with 12 months MOT and the bottle of wine was a very kind gesture. Thank you Peter.
Colin T
I recently bought a car from here and it was the least painful purchase I\'ve been through. Emails and queries were replied to quickly. Peter is a "you get what you see" bloke. There was no messing, no trying to knock me down from the book value of my part ex, there wasn\'t really an opening to haggle over the price of the car to be purchased - this wasn\'t a problem as the quality of the car was superb and the price low enough for me not to take the mick. None of the usual salesman patter, just straight forward business. Thanks Peter.
Janet H
Great Service all round. Friendly. Helpful. No hard sell. Clear customer comes 1st. Would definitely recommend them. Free bottle of wine was a lovely touch
Faye B
Saw advertisement online for a Suzuki Swift, really impressed with the car. Peter was very helpful, he put a full service and MOT on the car and we are very happy! I would recommend anybody to go to these guys, thank you.
Jonathan B
Polite and helpful service. My BMW came with 12 months mot and a full service. I would highly recommend Whitegate Motors if your thinking about purchasing a vehicle. I also received a free bottle of white wine which saved me a trip to the off licence.
Rob P
Well worth the 550 mile plus in 2 trips to buy the car , came with a service and new mot , great customer service from John and really happy with the car would definitely use the guys again , Cheers
Diane C
Bought a Toyota Aygo and I am so happy with the service I received, I can highly recommend Peter and Whitegate Motors
Ian D
Really impressed with Whitegates customer service. I bought a Skoda Octavia in Nov 2017 with a tow bar already fitted. In Feb 2018 I had the tow bar electrics tested -prior to towing caravan. It transpired that there were no electrics actually fitted to the tow bar. Peter was extremely helpful and arranged for the electrics to be fitted and also provided me with a courtesy car whilst the work was carried out. I can truthfully say that the customer care is the best I have experienced from a garage.

I can highly recommend Whitegate motors if looking for a used car. They came highly recommended. Just purchased a vehicle, they were so helpful, and pleasant, nothing was too much trouble and they gave us six months warranty which gives us peace of mind, I would now recommend them to others, and if I wanted another car would look there first.
Dave G
I can recommend Whitegate Motors to anyone looking to purchase a quality used vehicle with one hundred percent confidence. Peter and all his staff have been professional,courteous and trustworthy throughout my recent experience with them,not only in giving me a fair trade in on my Porsche but also in doing everything my new BMW needed and then some more. I have been buying cars for forty years and never had the kind of service I got here as a result I am definitely going to buy my next car here. I even received a top quality bottle of Shiraz as a thank you for my business ( a real nice touch). So thank you everyone at Whitegate for making my car buying experience a pleasure, cheers Dave.

Once again a fantastic experience from this family run business. I test drove several quality vehicles when I wasn't really sure what I was looking for. Peter and his family really listened and helped me choose what proved to be an excellent new car. Absolutely amazing service and I drove away with one of the best cars I've ever had. Even the complimentary bottle of wine was special. It's a rare thing these days to be treated as well as this. Congratulations and thank you to Peter and his family for making this an exciting purchase and for providing such personal care and detail.

Thank you so much to Peter & all the staff for all your help over Christmas. You made what should have been a stressful time into a stress free experience. Because of your excellent service, collecting our car, providing a free courtesy car, fixing the car and keeping in touch throughout, our daughter bought her first car from you which she is thrilled with. Highly recommend to anybody and we will be back for all the MOTs. Also thanks for the wine!

I have just bought a vehicle from this dealer and I must say I have never been treated as royally as i have here. Friendly,straight up,no messing,but no bull sales pitch. They bent over backwards to fulfil my every wish. I cannot recommend this dealer highly enough.Thank You Whitegate Motors.
Jack W

My wife was looking for a Z4 and we saw one on autotrader at Whitegate motors. We went along and after trying other garages got the feeling we were now at the right place. The service from Peter and his staff was exceptional. After test driving the vehicle we agreed the price and did the deal. Peter then told us we could pick up the car the next day after it had been serviced and had a new MOT. On collection we were also given a bottle of wine as a thank you for our business. I would definitely recommend Whitegate Motors to anyone looking for a quality second hand motor. A very pleasant experience overall.
Christopher H
Great service, very quick and friendly, plus the bottle of wine as a thank you for buying from them was a special touch.
Rod M
Would highly recommend this garage when looking to purchase a new vehicle..Peter was great and couldn\'t do enough sorting everything out top man top garage.
Felicia W
The service I received from Peter and his staff was amazing. They were very helpful when I enquired about my first car, it was a quick and easy process and I never felt pressured. They even stayed open later for me so I could get a look at the car after I had finished work. The car was basically brand new and they even dropped it off for me on a Saturday morning, with a full years mot, and a warranty along with a bottle of wine! Had the car now for just under a month and its brilliant! would definitely recommend.
Kathryn F
Couldnt have asked for a better service and hassle free car buying experience! Just bought an Audi A1 with full 12 Months MOT and Service! Car is in immaculate condition, great price and Peter couldn't have done more for me! Highly recommend!!!
Malcolm W
I had been looking for a Corsa for my son (his first car) for several weeks. I was becoming frustrated by looking at so many cars that were nowhere near as good as advertised. That was until we visited Whitegate Motors. I could tell as soon as I arrived that this was a professionally run business and there was no pressure at all. We found a 2009 Corsa that was in excellent condition at a good price. Purchasing the car couldn\'t have been easier and we were even given a bottle of wine for Xmas! I would definitely recommend this dealer and will return when I need a replacement car.
Norman G
I first saw the car on auto trader. went to view it and was very impressed by way I was looked after. I cant fault anything about the way I was looked after. picked the car up a week later everything was perfect. I would recommend them to anybody.
Richard R
Me and the wife travelled down from the Dales, To pick up a car from Whitegate Motors. What an enjoyable day, The staff was courteous, Professional and they even made, this old lad and his other half a brew. What service. The car was very well presented. Clean inside, Out and all the work prior to collection we had agreed upon was done to a very high standard. The car had been valeted, MOT\'D serviced and you could see they went that extra mile. That is why I had no hesitation asking for some business cards to hand out ( Which I have done) John the salesman We dealt with What can I say what a star Thank you very much for the warm welcome Looking forward to visiting again sometime in the near future
Robert L
Absolutely fantastic service from the beginning to the end. When looking at vehicles to buy, there is no pushy sales person, just Peter who was very friendly and knowledgeable! On buying the vehicle they repaired minor cosmetic damage to the car and gave a full service and MOT for no extra cost and gives you that extra piece of mind. Nothing is too much trouble and I would highly recommend and use again! Just like to say thanks for making buying a car so simple and easy.
Barry C
Professionalism through and through.
A brilliantly well run family firm. On arrivel I was greeted by Peter who put me at ease encouraging me to have a look around the showroom at my own pace with no pressure selling from any of the staff. I was spoilt for choice looking at quality spotlessly clean vehicles. Any information I asked for was readily given to me without being pushed. I took the car I was interested in for a test drive and found the car to be in excellent condition. I approached Peter,, did the deal and bought the car right there and then. Very happy with my purchase and the professionalism of Peter and all the staff. I will recommend this company to anyone that might mention to me that they are looking for a car. Thank you very much to Whitegate Motors.

Callum & Cathereine Y

This is the first time I\'ve ever felt compelled enough to write a review for a car dealer.
Me and my wife have just purchased a car from Whitegate motors. The whole process was painless and we were made to feel very welcome throughout the whole experience. Peter was not pushy in the slightest. He gave myself and my wife plenty of time before and after the test drive to have a look around the car and discuss. Furthermore, he allowed us to fully study the service history of the car on our own, without us even asking. As part of the proposed deal Peter agreed to MOT the car, and resolve any issues raised, and also resolve a few very minor cosmetic niggles we\'d found whilst looking around, and also provided us with 3 months warranty. We loved the car, but Peter\'s excellent customer service was a very large factor in him securing the deal. I don\'t like parting with my hard earned cash at all, but I can confidently say I\'d happily do business again with this fine gent!
Tony F
My wife and have just bought our daughters 1st car from Whitegate Motors. After visiting volume car showroom\'s and, speaking to dubious people private sellers, finding Whitegate Motors brought relief. In an age where bad manner\'s, poor customer service, dishonesty and inflated APR\'s are everywhere Peter is a breath of fresh air. We felt like we were buying a new car! They couldn\'t do enough for us.
Without hesitation, I would highly recommend buying from Whitegate Motors.
Many thank\'s to Peter and the Team.
Toby F
:What a legend! Great car, competitive price and the service from Peter was truly excellent. He is a total gent and clearly cares about his customers and the cars he\'s selling. Highly recommended, many thanks - and I even got a cup of tea while I was inspecting the car!
Jonathan M
I bought a 2008 mini one from Whitegate and they deserve a shining review the whole process was simple and easy, Peter and the staff gave me and my family as much time as we needed to check the car and he let me test drive the car on a longer route to really get to know the car. Whilst out on the test drive he even arrange for my sister to have a coffee, and the aftercare has been impeccable I've had a couple of issues with the car due to old age and he fixed them without argument with his fantastic warranty I was even provided a courtesy car. It's safe to say that I will stay with Whitegate and my car will have all its repair work servicing and mot's done there.
Anne B
:I would like to say a big thankyou to Peter for selling me a Ford Focus this week, I am over the moon with it. Everything went smoothly from part exchanging my old car to picking the new one up. I highly recommend Whitegate Motors for buying a new car. A friendly and helpful service. + a bottle of wine, cheers Peter.
Graeme A
:Very pleased with my purchased BMW 320d sport, I have had a very good experience from viewing to picking up the car all within 5 days. Special thanks to John Green whom I dealt with throughout, very helpful and polite, all in all a great experience.
Sam A
Very very happy with my BMW 3 Series M Sport Plus Edition. Extremely happy with the service I received from Peter. He was very helpful and a gentleman. Not only did he ensure I got the best deal on my finance he gave me a bottle of wine as a thank you. Now you just don't get service like that from most car salesman. It's the little things that make all the difference. I can't thank Peter enough. Thank you for making it a very pleasurable buying experience. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy a car without the fuss.

Picked up a 2003 Mini for the wife. Seen on internet the photos didn''t do it justice, the car was better. Very clean, serviced, the staff were very friendly and helpful. It drove and looked like a new car, very happy. Would recommend Whitegate Motors to any one ...thanks again.
Nikki W
Bought and picked up my Golf 1.6 tdi today with a 6 month warranty. John Green the salesman was very nice when I was viewing the vehicle right down to me picking the car up he was very helpful, thank you personally to him. Also would recommend this garage for a great experience in buying your new vehicle, car was as advertised and didn't disappoint on viewing. Happy customer so far.
Matt J
I recently bought my 208 gti from Whitegate, sold with a no quibble 6 month warranty. I found Peter to be a very honest salesman, he purchased my car as a part ex and I was very happy with his valuation and all the dealings I had with him. It was all simple and straightforward, keep it up.
Julie L
Bought a Mini Cooper today after speaking to John over the past week. We came over from N Yorkshire and the car was ready, serviced and MOTd. Was able to take it on the motorway for a test drive. The car drives like dream, is immaculate and is absolutely as advertised. Would definitely recommend using Whitegate Motors if you're looking for a hassle-free experience.
Tom P
When you buy a second hand car you want to be sure the car is a good one. I have just bought a VW Tiguan from Pete Dobson, the owner of Whitegate Motors. At no extra cost Pete fitted new brake pads even though I did not realise they needed replacing. Pete is a genuine first class car salesman who you really can trust to give you the service you deserve.
Sara R
I have recently purchased a car from Whitegate Motors and I can't recommend them highly enough. It was completely hassle free, no pressure or pushy salesmen, just left to browse with a cup of tea. The staff were brilliant and extremely knowledgeable about the car with lots of useful information. Would definitely recommend them to friends and family and will be sure to go back in the future. A family run firm offering a professional service, a fantastic local car dealer, well worth a visit if you are planning on changing your car !!
Brian F
A straightforward professional and courteous car buying experience. Nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely use their service again
Mary Fishwick
Just picked up a Hyundai i10 for my son today as his first car. Received great service from going to look at it to picking it up. They serviced and mot\'d it before pick up. Even received a bottle of wine as a thank you. Must say much better service than i got when i bought a brand new car last year from another garage!!! Will definitely recommend to family and friends. Thank you all at Whitegate, esp John.
Paul Doherty
So pleased with my S-Class Mercedes. Such a complicated car that I was amazed that my local Merc specialist found nothing wrong with it and pointed out where Whitegate had put in new ball joints even after I had paid for the car. Peter literally went the extra mile by bringing the car up to the Scottish border. Just great! Many thanks Whitegate Motors
Laura Jones
Just picked up my Corsa today. Could not be happier with the service I received from Peter when purchasing my car! Lovely family run business and it really comes across that they care for their customers. Got a bottle of wine as a thank you for using them too which was a nice little touch. Thank you for all your help will definitely recommend you to friends and family.
