Customer reviews for this trader
Really positive experience helping my parents buy a wheelchair enabled vehicle from this company. Can't rate them enough and thank them for all they did. Would definitely recommend to anyone waiting to purchase this type of vehicle, especially those that are not really sure what suits their needs.
Excellent service from start to finish. Paul was very knowledgeable and patient, could not do anything else to put me at ease. This was my first experience buying a WAV vehicle also the first time I have had to do this on my own at 65 years of age. Paul made a very scary experience into a good one. Would recommend this trader to all my friends and especially older women doing it on their own.
We have received an excellent service when purchasing our WAV from the wholesale car company. Thank you for all your help and making it so easy and delivering
Using self propelled and motorised wheelchairs, I realised a wheelchair accessible vehicle would be advantageous, so searched the Internet and found a website called the Wholesale Car Company specialising in WAV vehicles. Talking with Paul and Jon, the proprietors, I explained that I needed to know the positives of a WAV, that were specific to my mobility requirement. Both were professional knowledgeable and helpful, such that without any pressure from them I decided to purchase from them. The experience went from good to great, as I chose a vehicle, a delivery date was set, was told that delivery driver Nick would explain everything until my wife and I were satisfied we knew all we needed to know and then take our car that we were part exchanging, away. All the above were carried out as promised, excellent and we had our car. We needed Paul's after sales actions on a minor problem that was sorted out quickly to our complete satisfaction. I can't thank Paul and Jon enough for all aspects of our dealings with them and I have no hesitation in recommending the Wholesale Car Company to anyone who is interested. Regards, Michael and Lesley Daynes.
Contacting Paul at WCC was our second attempt at buying a WAV. The first very unsuccessful and we returned the vehicle. Speaking with Paul, a whole different experience, friendly, polite, knowledgeable, helpful. I still had a fear of an internet buy over a very long distance, having bought sight seen and driven all my life. Paul put my mind at rest enough to try again, we agreed and he arranged the free delivery from Ilkeston to Cornwall. The delivery driver, Nick, was again friendly, polite, knowledgeable and took us through all we needed to be shown, even loading Mum aboard in her wheelchair to take the vehicle for our test drive. The vehicle was showroom clean. All service records/history were presented. Just all-round excellent service as hoped for. We had an intermittent 'Service' warning light show up on the test drive which was noted. This turned out to be an engine fault warning which WCC asked us to take to our local dealer for diagnosis and resolution Paul, Richard and John at WCC were all spot on, helping us through the easiest warranty event ever dealing direct with the dealer in Cornwall, Thank you so much
*Customer Feedback* I cannot see how they can justify the 6,000 loss I made in my dealings with them, it's quite obvious from their reply to me they are unprepared to break that figure down. I had the WAV for 15 weeks, I did 1.635 miles. It was returned in pristine condition. I feel that they absolutely took advantage of my husband's disability and subsequent death. Which obviously has left me in an emotional vulnerable state. *Traders Reply* Mrs XXX approached us to see if we would buy back her vehicle, as we are a specialist car dealer in low volume adapted vehicles our margins are greater than they would be were we a conventional high volume dealer. What we offer is a superb customer service which included going out to this customer on two occasions to resolve a couple of issues she had and getting a new key for her and having it reprogrammed at her house for minimum inconvenience something you don't get from main dealers. We offered to exchange her car for a conventional car direct from Motability for which we are an approved dealer with no profit accruing to us. Mrs XXX however chose the next day to part exchange the car to a Honda dealer in Chesterfield. I think our feedback and Google reviews speak for themselves.
Fantastic, honest and very helpful. Couldn't recommend them enough. The customer service was outstanding. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
Friendly, professional and informative.
This was our first experience of buying a WAV and Wholesale Car Company and Paul in particular made this an extremely easy process. From our very first contact with the company everyone we spoke to was pleasant, professional and knowledgeable. They could not have been more helpful and accommodating when a last minute hitch on our behalf meant we had to change the delivery date of the vehicle. They gave us a great price on our existing car without even seeing it and the handover/exchange of the cars was very smooth thanks to Nick who delivered the car to a location of our choosing as we were unable to make the 5 hour round trip to view it. He demonstrated all the features including loading and unloading my dad in his wheel chair with patience and good humour. Many thanks to every one involved - we would definitely recommend Wholesale Car Company to anyone interested in a WAV.
They treated me like an intelligent person which is unusual, they were helpful nothing was too much trouble kept me informed throughout. Would highly recommend, run like a proper business that care. Thank you.
Didn't know about Trusted Trader, but this company certainly deserves to be part of this scheme. Couldn't have asked for any better service, at the point of my initial enquiry, buying my vehicle and after. Brilliant.!
I needed a wheelchair adapted vehicle, where the wheelchair drives into the back of the vehicle as my husband was finding it difficult to transfer into the car. The personal service, advice and support from Wholesale Car Company was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and bought the van to my house for us both to view before deciding and then delivered it to me after the purchase. Richard, Chris and Nick were all superb. I would highly recommend this company. They also advised me where to get a powered wheelchair from, which was very helpful and resulted in a successful purchase. Thank you.
We would highly recommend this company. We recently purchased a WAV from them, there was no high pressure sales talk just good sensible information. Chris bought a vehicle to our home so we could get the feel of it on familiar roads before we decided. Would recommend them 100%.
Pleasant throughout, informative and very helpful, delivered the vehicle for testing as well as at point of sale. Maintained the price even when we discovered the vehicle was more highly specified than they knew. Good warranty, full test and tax in the price. So far very happy.
This has to be the best vehicle buying experience ever. We were met by Chris who advised us to park in the showroom so my wife could get out of our car into her wheelchair in comfort. As Chris has years of experience we were shown a range of WAVs to suit our needs and steered away from ones that were unsuitable. Certainly no hard sell here! When we had chosen a WAV it was explained to us how the comprehensive warranty worked, that a clean 12 month MOT would be issued and delivered for free no matter where we lived in the country. Unfortunately I cannot remember the name of the chap who delivered the WAV but he was very friendly and spent time demonstrating how everything worked to make sure we were satisfied with it. I highly recommend this Company, long may they continue in business.
Very pleasant and helpful staff. Good choice of wheelchair accessible vehicles, all in excellent condition. Fair price and fair part-exchange offer for my previous vehicle. Speedy and smooth process. Overall, excellent.
Chris at Wholesale Car Company was highly efficient, helpful and very professional. He secured us the ideal car for our needs. I cannot recommend Chris and his company highly enough.
Friendly conversations. Good demonstrations. Agreeable price discussions. Detailed re demonstrations. Vehicle in prime condition. Wear a warm coat.
Having been unaware of the Trusted Trader scheme my husband and I read several reviews prior to making our decision to visit this company. We found a marvellous range of vehicles on display, which gave us a feel for exactly what we might require. Chris, the gentleman who showed my husband and I around the showroom readily demonstrated the mechanisms that the vehicles offered. He also clearly answered any questions that we had with regard to the vehicles that we examined. The assistance that was given helped us to narrow down the field and to make our decision. Chris delivered the vehicle to our home and showed us the best way to load and unload my scooter. Our purchase definitely fits the bill and is a joy to drive. The whole transaction was smooth from start to finish.
Buying a wheelchair adapted car from Chris at this company was a pleasure. He made it so easy and was very helpful in helping us to understand all the features, pros and cons of different vehicles - enabling us to make a quick but informed choice. We would highly recommend him and the company to anyone requiring a wheelchair adapted car.
We found this company to be excellent in every aspect. They were very helpful when we were trying to identify a suitable wheelchair access vehicle and even delivered the car we chose for a test drive prior to us agreeing to the purchase. The vehicle was presented to a very high standard and was exactly what we wanted. There was a minor problem with a warning light but they quickly collected, repaired and returned the car under warranty. Overall a very professional and courteous company which we can highly recommend.
Fantastic service. While I was away for a respite week, I am my wife's carer, she is wheelchair bound disabled, the live in carer took my wife in the WAV we purchased all over the place in Nottinghamshire / Derbyshire. The WAV is going to make a massive difference to my wife's quality of life.
I am so pleased that I have purchased our wheelchair accessible vehicle from this company, as their service has been excellent throughout. They have provided us with a lovely vehicle, brought it all the way to Scotland, and did an easy part-exchange on our previous vehicle. Thank you very much to Chris and Nick; we look forward to dealing with you again in the future.
Chris, our salesman was wonderful he was really helpful showing us different options and types of vehicles we could buy. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
Wholesale wheelchair adapted Car Company 22/11/20. Hi Richard and Chris, I'm writing to you to thank you for your superb service regarding my vehicle the Renault Kangoo YX61FPA which I purchased from you last July. The vehicle developed an unexpected major gearbox fault, and was speedily dealt with very promptly by yourselves. The support and backing you provided was superb / faultless. I recommend the Wholesale wheel chair adapted Car Company. To anyone in need of good honest service backup and value. Thank you once again gentlemen.
Really pleased with the great service Chris provided before and after my purchase. It felt like I was dealing with someone who really cared about my circumstances and was making sure I was buying the right car. The car comes with a 12 months warranty including MOT. Not only that he made sure any advisories on the MOT were dealt with also. Amazing! We got delivery from Nick who brought the car all the way up to sunny Scotland. He took his time showing me around the car and more importantly how the wheelchair should be made safe and secure before any journey. Nick was just as friendly and the great service continued with him. At no point did I feel under pressure or dealt with any hard sale talk. Hand on my heart I would recommend them without hesitation. I'm sure we'll have plenty of good years with our car. Thank you for making the whole experience effortless.
I have just bought a Citroen Berlingo WAV from the Wholesale Car Company Ltd and have had it shipped across to Northern Ireland. I dealt with Chris who was extremely helpful in helping me find the car that best suited my needs, he went out of his way to ensure the whole shipping process went smoothly and followed up with me to ensure everything was ok. The car is in excellent condition and I'm very pleased with my purchase. I would definitely recommend Wholesale Car Company Ltd.
All were experts in their fields especially Chris, a pleasure to do business with. The only problem I came up against was the agents they use as they are not on-site and you have to wait for someone to get back to you.
Wholesale Car Company, especially Chris, deserve Top Marks! I went there first because they were closest WAV outlet to home, but in the end didn't bother looking anywhere else. They had the right car at the right price I'd done lots of online research. There was no pressure, just lots of patience answering all my weird questions and showing me how the adaptations work. I find the whole prospect of car-buying incredibly daunting, but I felt in good hands here. Together with the 12 month warranty and all the good Trusted Trader reviews, that gave me the confidence to buy. Went straight into 4 months COVID Lockdown, so not been able to properly put car through its paces yet. However, so far so good, except last week I had a problem lowering the ramp. Contacted Chris to ask for advice on what to do and he immediately said 'bring it in, we'll sort it out under warranty.' Turns out ramp was fine, it was just me out of practice. and being too gentle with it. But they replaced both dampers for me any way! Fantastic! Really Easy and Smooth now. And then they cleaned the car! Fabulous Service! Thank you! Highly Recommended!
