What our customers say about us...
Simple car buying service from Barkers, start to finish.
- Simple, quick, and no pressure.
Thoroughly nice people to deal with. No pressure to buy but Eli when requested.
- Professional and nice people.
Visited 3 times the 3rd time to pick up the car I had purchased, on each occasion I was treated with a warm welcome by the salesman dealing with me. He made sure all the paperwork was in order and spent time with me in the car to show me the controls and what did what before I drove away with my purchase.
- Politely and warmly welcomed on each occasion.
From the minute myself and my wife walked into your dealership we were impressed that no one jumped on us straight away with the pressure to buy. When I emailed you, again I was impressed as you replied on your day off. Everything went very smooth with regards to the sale and also any questions that I posed to you. I look forward to getting my New SsangYong Rextononce its ready. Tim source email review.
- Professional Service.
I would like to thank the staff at Barkers for a hassle free purchase, from the initial enquiry to the final purchase, wish all the car dealers I have dealt with in the past were like this. I was given the time on my own to check vehicle over, plus a good test drive with no pressure, honest competitive pricing, 6 month AA warranty. Many Thanks Roy C... source Autotrader.

Treated as a valued customer. Published Car was as described, treated well by the sales team so many thanks to them. Car was ready to collect on time & I was happy with the trade in value of my used car. I have been in the motor trade myself & owned a dealership so was expecting to be critical of the sales process but I was very happy. Thanks again. source Autotrader.

I had decided on the make/model of the used car I wanted and it wasn't an 'easy' find without looking nationwide. Barkers had TWO, not quite identical but they were what I wanted. We went to view. My first choice (by colour) had been sold. We took the other car for an unaccompanied test drive. All good but I had some minor niggles with cosmetics. No problem to Barkers - everything AND more were done to ensure I was happy with the purchase. No hassle. No pressure. Nothing too much trouble.10/10

Very happy with the purchase of our car, from our initial enquiry to collecting the car. The salesperson had the car ready fro us to view/test drive at a time of our choosing. No pressure was put on us whatsoever, left us alone to view the car and to have a good test drive. We had initially avoided most dealerships as we cant be doing with any hassle when making such an expensive purchase, but Barkers were totally hassle free which was appreciated. They were always available to take our phone calls with queries or always rang us back to keep us informed. All these things combined were so helpful. source autotrader.

I bought a brand new Korando from Barkers today. I cant praise Stephen the salesman enough. He looked after me throughout and is a lovely genuine guy. I feel I got a great deal and was certainly the best SsangYong dealer I had visited. It wasnt that far from me in Manchester and was worth the visit. Even the owner came and shook my had and thanked me for my custom. These guys have it right. SsangYong should be using these people as an example on how to treat customers. I will be telling everybody to go and Steve at Barkers in Preston. I look forward to many years of business with them. source; facebook review.

Took delivery of our SsangYong Turismo and are delighted with our car and service from Paul and the team at Barkers. Meaning all the paperwork was sorted, requiring only the one journey from our home South West Scotland.. to drop of our old car and pick up the Turismo. We found Barkers to be just about the only dealer to offer a range of Turismo models. Thanks Again. source; facebook review.

Fantastic Customer Service and Great Deal! I received fantastic service from Paul Gibbs at Barkers from my intial phone call right the way through to picking my car up! Paul dealt with everything and kept me up to date with the extra work I asked to be done. The car was even ready a day earlier so I didnt have to pick the car up on my wedding anniversary. Quality service and no pressure, Paul let us test drive the car on our own to make sure it was right for us. Cant recommend Paul and Barkers Enough! source; autotrader review.

The purchase of my new Tivoli was totally fuss free , waited for the release of the diesel model but it arrived promptly . Barkers were very good through the whole process , Not reached the first service interval yet so can not comment on that , But hopefully that will also be a good experience

Number one test driving no hassle no one looking over your shoulder, you can enjoy the experience. No high pressure sales no pestering. But best of all is the product it more than lives up to expectations. The only mines I have had is the starting of the vehicle using the break and clutch, in normal circumstances this is not an issue but I stalled on a roundabout this meant I had to be stationary to restart the vehicle it was a one off but worth thinking about. If it was just depressing the clutch you could roll and restart the vehicle. Yours Peter Hall
