Starting with only 4 cars, they now hold a wide selection of makes and models with around 30 cars in stock and another 5 or so coming through the extensive preparation system. e preparation is one of the keys to NFC’s success and partnering with the RAC back in November 2014 gives a real seal of approval. As an RAC Approved Dealer every retail vehicle comes with RAC BuySure. In April 2017, New Forest Cars also partnered with B’s Garage in Calshot, making the mechanical preparation, MOT and a er sales process so much easier and quicker. e cleaning preparation is all done on site at NFC in their valeting bay to the rear of the premises with their 2 full time vehicle detailers Justin and Wayne. Another key to New Forest Cars success is the friendly and polite service given from Chris and Paul, the sales team. Customers have said: “Immediately felt at ease and ended up buying the car we went to see.” Another customer said : “Extremely easy to deal with and would not hesitate to recommend again. Phil Tegg, Managing Director said: “We pride ourselves on every aspect of preparing our vehicles, not just how clean they are. I have always believed that the cars should be as ready as possible, meaning that any faults would have been corrected prior to the cleaning process and this means the customer doesn’t need to wait too long for their new vehicle. With the help of B’s Garage, we can get the MOT and Service done within a couple of days, sometimes even the same day!” New Forest Cars well stocked forecourt Left to Right: ‘J’ Frampton, Chris McLeish and Wayne Smith Being an RAC Approved Dealer for the past 4 years and ve months just proves how important the preparation is at New Forest Cars and it gives customers the reassurance from a very well-known motoring organisation. ey have upgraded the site in Holbury over the past 5 years to make it more presentable and enabling them to hold more vehicles in stock, they constantly get comments about not realising there are vehicles down the side and around the back. ere are around 30 cars in stock which means there is more choice available to our customers. One happy customer Kimberley said: “ I got excellent service. Very friendly and helpful car sales team. I woud recommend to anyone looking to purchase a 2nd hand vehicle”. Another satis ed customer Nicola said : “A great experience! 10/10. I had an easy going and honest salesman who made me feel very comfortable, with no hard sell. I was very happy with the service I was given and more than happy to buy the car from there. As a single woman, I totally recommend the experience, and this garage.” Phil concluded: “ I am very proud and grateful to the staff for the constant hard work and look forward to the next 5 years here in Holbury.” To read more reviews or to see the current stock available, visit www. newforestcars.co.uk
