Today I had the pleasure of buying a mint condition Audi from Howard Wise. The car was just as he had described over the phone so this made the trip the opposite of a waste of time. Both Deborah and Howard were great to deal with, knew everything they needed to about the car and provided a very professional and friendly service. I would highly recommend buying from Howard Wise and would happily buy from him again.
If you are comparing two vehicles and one of them is at Howard Wise… the decision is easy!
Professional from the initial phone call to book the viewing, right up to leaving Howard the very next day with my newly purchased C63!
You can purchase from Howard with peace of mind. I’m absolutely made up with my C63. Low miles, excellent condition. 2 brand new rear tyres had been fitted along with it being MOT’d and serviced 2 days before I purchased.
Expect to walk away happy, not just with the car but from knowing that you’ve bought a vehicle from someone that actually cares about what they are selling.
Just factor in an extra hour or two to your visit as you’ll be admiring all the other cars in the showroom whilst having a great time with great people.
Overall, I’ve already recommended to friends and I’m sure i’ll be seeing Howard down south again soon!
Thanks again for all your help.
Andrew, North West
Julia and I very much enjoyed our time at the showroom and I’d like to thank you for the seamless transaction regarding the SL. Your connections proved invaluable in unlocking a process that had seemed impossible to overcome but your swift work did the trick and Ieft everyone with what they wanted. Excellent work and much appreciated.
“I recently bought a Range Rover Sport from Howard. Not only was the car immaculate in every way but the whole process of purchase and part exchange was made as simple and painless as possible – I left 2 hours later in the new car with Road tax, Insurance, money all sorted – Great Car, Great Service – thank you”
Again, it has been great fun and always interesting to hear from you and benefit from your experience and see your enthusiasm for our shared passion. Having sold and bought through you now I have no hesitation in recommending Howard Wise Cars.
I wanted to thank you for making the purchase of a lovely Porsche a straightforward transaction. Throughout the process – you were always available to answer any questions and had all the relevant details to hand. Your appraisal of the car over the phone was accurate and gave me the confidence to purchase without seeing the car in the flesh. Being able to deliver to me during lockdown was a real bonus. A pleasure to deal with you. Highly recommended! Thanks
Howard it was a pleasure meeting you yesterday. The service you gave myself and my Brother was most definitely to a high standard and your showroom is like heaven for a car enthusiast!
I am so excited to collect my new car next week and look forward to dealing with you again in the near future!
I have just purchased my 4th car from Howard Wise and have also sold through him over the course of 3 years or so as well!
Howard and the team continue to look after me as well as they did the first time round and I am more than happy with the service I have received these past few years.
Look forward to the next one!!!
Howard I have just had a phone call from my very happy Daughter and would like to thank you for being a part of that!
I am more than happy to recommend Howard Wise Cars to my family and friends and am sure my Daughter will too.
You have made her special birthday and I am very grateful.
Samuel and a very excited Rebecca!
To Howard, Sam & Deborah
Saved up for 20 years for “Marilyn” Aston Martin, so was very cautious to buy from a trustworthy car specialist. Came across Howard and the lovely ladies who make the process so so simple, like changing log book ownership via DVLA and even road taxing it for me within the hour. All I had to do was insure and go.
To a car guy or girl this place is like Disney Land.
You will be looked after with plenty to look at, take a car nut friend and he or she will love it too.
A big thank you to a very very knowledgeable Mr Wise and the two lovely ladies Deborah and Sam.
I wanted to write and thank you once again now we are home in our wonderful new purchase.
You knew how much this meant to both of us and you all truly made the whole experience as wonderful as it could possibly be for us and most definitely went the extra mile!
We will never forget that and will definitely be coming back to you in the future.
All the best.
Andrew and Kate
Good Afternoon Howard and Team,
I just wanted to send a quick thank you email to you all.
I am home safe and sound and wanted to say it was a great pleasure to meet you all earlier today.
Even though it was brief, you were all very efficient and made my trip very quick and straight forward.
I look forward to doing business with you again in the future.
Hope you all have a lovely Christmas and New Year, see you in 2020!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
You have all made this experience for my Wife and I so enjoyable, it was a real pleasure to meet you all and I would happily recommend Howard Wise Cars.
I’m just about to take her out for a spin 🙂
I was selling my car and Howard approached me as a potential buyer and was extremely fair in his approach to price and paid deposit immediately. Throughout the process Howard kept me fully informed. A very nice and knowledgeable man absolutely focused on detail and the presentation/condition of the cars he has. Strongly recommended.
Collecting our car from Howard and his team was a pleasure. Not only was he very helpful at the show room, he phoned ahead to our nearby hotel to make sure we had secure parking overnight and he came to see us the next morning for a chat and to suggest local places to see on the way home. He was very attentive and made us feel special, even though I think our car was the least expensive in the showroom.
I couldn’t imagine a friendlier and more enthusiastic gentleman from whom to buy a car; he phoned to make sure we got home safely when we had a minor mishap on our return journey, in fact he was more concerned about this than we were.
Altogether a great experience.
After a long train journey down from Scotland to Howard’s showroom in Essex, we were greeted with a very warm and welcoming reception by Howard himself and ‘The Gang!’
The car didn’t disappoint in any way after speaking with Howard over the phone on a few occasions.
Dealing with HWC, my Wife and I felt very comfortable and at ease.
Overall, the whole experience was very enjoyable indeed.
We ended up staying at the showroom a lot longer than we thought we would and have definitely found new friends down South!
Yet another purchase from Howard Wise Cars and the same service I received when I first met Howard.
Howard and his team are always very helpful and will go the extra mile.
I will definitely continue buying and selling my cars through them.
Thank you to the Howard Wise Team for all your help with selling my car.
You kept me updated the whole way through and I was very pleased with the sale and will most definitely use you again next time!
I wanted to thank you for delivering the car. You have been so incredibly friendly and helpful through the buying process which has made it so easy for us.
We drove the car to the afternoon polo at Cowdray, our six year old daughter giggled in the back seat and I could see that Tony was really happy and relaxed driving it. We had so many appreciative lovely comments from both friends and strangers today which reassured us of what a special elegant classic car it really is.
We will endeavor to look after it although we also intend to use it.
I hope we meet again, perhaps I will keep my eye out on your website for something with a bit more vroom for me!
Just wanted to say how pleased I am with the XK140, having collected it on Monday and thank you so much for all your help in securing it. It is a truly wonderful car and I am looking forward to some summer drives, once our summer finally comes! I feel quite privileged to be the owner and hope to improve it over time with a little fetling here and there. I am genuinely thrilled to bits, thank you so much.
I just wanted to say that buying the car from you was an extremely easy experience. I was already negotiating on another vehicle with another dealer and everything was difficult and no straight answer to any queries I raised was being received, the complete opposite to dealing with you. As we went round the vehicle and little issues came to light without me saying a word you said that would be dealt with, and when I finally came to collect the vehicle it was perfect. Thanks again for making the buying process so simple.
All the best
Thank you for the best car buying experience I have ever had. Nothing was too much trouble and the car was presented perfectly. Very straight forward and easy to do business with from the very first e-mail right through until the car was delivered to my door. Exactly the car I was looking for, great condition and top spec. I highly recommend Howard Wise Cars and I will be back. All dealerships should take a note out of HWC books. I have absolutely no problems recommending Howard and his company.
I have been buying cars from Howard for a few years now and I have to say that his service and knowledge are hard to beat! This is a fantastic business that’s been around for a while.
They specialize in high quality, high end cars and due to Howard, Deborah and Samantha’s expertise, it makes buying a new car a great experience!
Pricing on the cars is always fair, the buying process is easy and I have always left with a great deal on cars that many other dealers were struggling to compete with.
I will go back here again because of the excellent customer service and high quality vehicles.
I have just bought my current car through Howard Wise Cars and wanted to thank all of the team there for helping me throughout the sale even though we had to overcome a few issues from my side but we got there in the end and I appreciate it.
I will definitely tell all my friends and family about Howard Wise Cars.
“A big thanks to Deborah, Samantha and Howard for making the whole process of buying my first classic car an absolute pleasure.
With his vast knowledge of the market, Howard advised and guided me through all the possible options until we found a car that suited me best. Once I had made my decision, everything was completed in a professional and timely manner, resulting in a seamless handover. I have recommended Howard to friends and colleagues and will be calling in on him again soon.”
Steve, Woodford Green, Essex, Aquarius, GSOH
I recently bought my Wife a Mercedes through Howard Wise Cars and from start to finish received great customer service from the whole team.
It was a pleasure getting to know them all and I feel very confident with my purchase and grateful for all their help.
I would like to thank you for your excellent service during the recent purchase of my Aston Martin Vanquish.
After having a poor response from a couple of other dealers I was pleased to receive a positive service from yourselves. The car was described accurately & the whole purchasing transaction was carried out professionally.
I have recommended you on a Google review.
Many thanks again Howard.
I had already committed to buy a car that morning at another garage when in the early hours I was reviewing cars on the iPad and I noticed one similar on Howard’s website. I rang at 9 o’clock and two minutes later found myself preparing to drive to their Loughton showroom.
I was introduced on arrival to my new car. As I was being shown around Howard opened the trunk, asked me to stick my head inside it, he did the same thing, and I asked what next? Sniff I was told. So we both did as I was told there was no damp in the trunk. It seemed a good enough reason to buy the car.
Within 10 minutes I was putting down a deposit knowing that Howard gave his personal endorsement and the fact the trunk was damp free.
I have a list longer than my arm of all the things I have to do and don’t do with what is now my car. The whole experience was a complete pleasure and I think what is now our car is in fact far better than he described!
I would recommend anyone thinking of buying a classic car to contact Howard or his team.
I would like to thank yourself, Deborah and Sam for your help purchasing two amazing cars that I cherish. The whole process of purchasing the cars was a breeze and I felt comfortable at all times. Nothing ever seemed like an issue for you and the team and everything was dealt with in a quick manner.
I’m sure we will be doing business for many years… mainly for the reason you are a great salesman! 🙂
Once again thank you for all your help in finding me the perfect cars.
From the start of my search for a Pagoda Howard was very charming and helpful. He fully understood my reasons for wanting to buy, so much so, he even declined to sell me one he had available in his showroom. A number of other examples were sourced however they failed to meet his high standards. After six months the right car was found. Howard’s insistence that it was supplied to me in the best possible condition resulted in several weeks of work at his expense. Throughout the whole search I was kept fully up to speed with what was happening. As the now proud and very happy owner of a beautiful car I would thoroughly recommend Howard and his team. Thanks again, Gus.
Good morning Howard ,
Just wanted to drop you a quick email ,although it’s been over 20 years plus since I last purchased a vehicle from you it’s clear to see that your attention to detail has if anything improved ,the quality and passion is still very personal to you ,it’s been an absolute pleasure dealing with you again and please pass on my thanks to Deborah & Samantha.
Looking forward to another visit soon.
Even though I bought what is probably one of your cheapest cars, the service you provided to me has been second to none. Your passion for cars and customer service is exceptional. Thank you.
Howard and Deborah,
Thank you for managing and selling our cars recently.
You have done a very good job over the years, managing and selling our fancy cars for top prices.
It’s been a pleasure working with you.
Just to say a big “thank you” to you for your hospitality today.
It was a real pleasure to meet you, chat with you and do business with you, making the whole experience of buying a car from you enjoyable. The car that I purchased is a great car and in fantastic condition. Having said that, all the cars in your showroom are of an excellent quality and very desirable.
Nothing was too much trouble for you and we could not have met a nicer person to do business with, having the knowledge and experience you have.
Albert and Loraine
I would like to say a huge thank you to Howard, Deborah and Samantha the team at Howard Wise Cars for making the purchase of my car a complete enjoyment.
Howard your car collection of both classic and modern is more than impressive, especially all being in show room condition, which shows your passion for the motor trade and finding such impeccable cars.
I would certainly recommend your professional service and expertise to anyone looking to purchase that special car.
Dear Howard and team,
I would like to say not only how pleased I am with the car I purchased from you, but also how you made the process so simple and enjoyable.
From a transactional perspective it was simple and fair on both sides. We agreed terms in a clear and pragmatic fashion with an open negotiation, where both sides knew what they wanted.
Your team are a real asset, all additional elements were dealt with efficiency and skill.
But the element that will stick in the mind for a very long time is how you all dealt with a very excited young son of mine. He was bouncing around full of joy – and we were welcomed with open arms and warmth.
Zac certainly will never forget picking up the car – and I doubt you all will either! He, and now his brothers, are still in love with the car as much as he was on that day!
Great experience and memories from start to finish.
My first purchase from Howard and his team. Extremely efficient and helpful as you would expect but, more importantly, thoroughly enjoyable people to deal with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Howard Wise whether you are buying or selling. They will do all they can for you.
My Wife and I recently did a part exchange with Howard and it went very smoothly. I would definitely recommend Howard Wise Cars to my friends and family, every step was laid out very clearly to us and anything that came up we sorted together.
I keep going back to Howard Wise Cars as he never fails and always delivers whatever request I may have. Thanks Howard, it was a pleasure yet again!
Throughout the car buying process, Howard was extremely responsive and thoughtful in his recommendations to me. Howard doesn’t forget you once the deal is done. To this day, he always make me feel like helping me is his highest priority. I can’t say enough about Howard’s professionalism, true caring nature, and extensive knowledge.
With any business I believe the critical component is the level of service and honesty you can build with who you are buying from.
I also believe it’s important you can build a friendship around trust where you can buy over the phone without even seeing the product.
Dealing with Howard Wise and his team has always allowed me to do that and dealing with someone who’s knowledge and passion for cars is second to none is an invaluable commodity when buying classic cars.
….I have known Howard for many years and bought and sold many cars through him – he is most definitely a car dealer you can trust!
He gives good advice, a fair price either buying or selling, and a trouble free transaction.
He has great cars in stock and can source virtually anything the customer requires.
I thoroughly recommend him…
All the best
I would like to offer my thanks and gratitude to Deborah, Samantha and most importantly to Howard for making the whole process of selling my old car and help in buying my new car so smooth and easy.
Your friendly, trustworthy help and advice was second to none, which in turn made my experience worry free……….. and there’s a lot to be said for that!
I most certainly would not hesitate in recommending Howard Wise Cars to anyone who is looking for a professional service with expert advice and excellent administrative support.
Thanks again to you all.
I recently bought from the HWC Team a beautiful car which caught my eye when I visited the showroom.
The history/paperwork for the car was very thorough and the whole process was made very simple and quick.
I have been lucky enough to enjoy the car quite a bit already in the beautiful weather we have had this summer so far and would definitely recommend Howard and his team to friends and family.
Howard and his team may not offer the cheapest option, but in a world where the car’s integrity is paramount, you will never have to worry about due diligence prior to making your acquisition. The products from this establishment are always the best. Thanks to you all for making the process of buying exotic cars so exciting and comfortable!
Still amazingly happy with my purchase – thank you
Poshest builder in the Cotswolds!
Hope you are well
Just wanted to thank you and Deborah. If you say you can do it, you can and do! It’s been a pleasure dealing with you and look forward to doing so again very soon.
Just a brief message to thank you for your help in selling my Mercedes. The service which I received from you and your team was first class and your experience was invaluable. I will not hesitate to use your expertise again.
I’d just like to say what a pleasure it was purchasing my wife’s Range Rover from you and your team. You were above and beyond in your customer service which is a rarity and I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to purchase a vehicle from you. Not only did I enjoy purchasing the vehicle but really loved having a look at all the very unique and rare stock of cars you had and hearing the history behind them so thank you for your time. Thanks again for all the help and I look forward to dealing with you again in the future.
James Anthony Keegan
Thanks again for all your help. The whole process went smoothly as always and I am really pleased with the C63.
Take care and see you soon.
Howard, Thank you very much for all of your help.
It’s a really nice truck, Steven.
Buying from Howard has been a real pleasure, not only is he professional and efficient, he deals with only the highest standard of car. We have exactly what we were looking and couldn’t be more impressed by the service provided.
Another one bites the dust! Happy to do business again with you and your team, looking forward to taking this one out on the road. Will send some pics!
This is my second purchase with you and yet again I am very happy. Thank you to both the girls for all their help as well, see you soon.
You found exactly the car I was looking for and I managed to save a few pounds, thank you for all your help guys.
Thanks HWC Team, it took a couple of weeks to get there but we did it in the end and I am really happy with my new purchase. Look forward to working together again in the future!
Thank you for getting my car sold very quickly and efficiently, you both have the patience of Saints! You stayed with us through the whole process and helped as much as you could. We will definitely be coming back to you in March to sell my Son’s Range Rover.
I have been looking for one of these Mercedes for about a year now and finally got to make my dream come true through you and your team so thank you very much for making the whole experience as enjoyable and simple as possible. I am currently clearing out the garage to make a home for it!
What a wonderful Christmas Present, thank you for helping us along. We couldn’t have done it without the help of you and your team. See you in the New Year.
The whole process of buying my Aston from Howard and his team was straightforward and fun. I have not owned a car for many years, but that did not matter; each of Howard, Deborah and Samantha was patient and extremely knowledgeable so I was taken through everything carefully and helpfully. The whole team have gone out of their way to be helpful and cheerful and I have been treated really well throughout. The end result is a car I am confident in buying and delighted to be driving. Thank you all! Stuart
Howard thank you so much, I am so pleased with my car and cannot wait to take it out on the road!
Thank you to all of you at Howard Wise Cars for making this experience enjoyable and straight forward for me. I hope you all have an amazing Christmas and New Year, from John and Susan.
Howard I just wanted to say thank you for making this process easy and straightforward. Your manner was very professional and I will definitely be recommending you to my friends. Russell
What can I say……….. Apart from thank you so much for finding me my dream car. I have received many compliments and am so pleased with my purchase. You and your team made the whole experience joyful and as smooth as possible and I am very much appreciative.
It’s abundantly clear on meeting Howard, that he has a genuine love affair with cars! It shines through in his knowledge and enthusiasm to share his expertise, not to mention, of his carefully selected collection of classic and modern cars. My buying experience could not have been more straightforward, transparent and fun. I have no doubt that I’ll keep in touch, not just for my next car but for Howard’s fantastic holiday tips as well! Thanks again.
From start to finish throughout the process, Howard & Deborah were courteous, communicative and accommodating. At no point did I feel pressured into any kind of deal. Howard took the time to understand the particular deal I was after & did his best to make it happen. The vehicle was absolutely as described and Howard made every effort to supply it in its best condition. The price offered for my part-exchange was a fair market rate and in the current economic climate, a fair deal with a trusted luxury vehicle provider is worthy of special note. I would certainly come to Howard for advice and guidance on acquiring any Top Marques in the future. Ian Hammond, Business Owner
A brief note to say thanks and it was a real pleasure doing business with you. I found the whole process of buying a used car from you a genuine delight. It’s unusual to find someone in the motor trade who has integrity, sincerity and real passion for their profession. Your very impressive classic car collection proves that you’re a car fanatic and that you value your reputation within the trade. I will certainly be in touch with you for my next purchase and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you in the future. Thanks again
Fabulous buying experience through Howard. The car and the process was flawless from first phone call from New York in December to taking delivery in mid January. I have already ordered up another car through Howard and will probably end up buying a classic car through Howard this summer. Wish I had met him 15 years ago and will certainly recommend him to my friends and family. Already looking forward to my next visit.
Thank you both for making the purchase of my Mercedes a pleasure, and not the nightmare that trading an old car for new usually is. You were both helpful, very easy to deal with and in no way pushy, you made the whole process very straightforward. I also appreciate the ease with which the deal was made for the trade-in of the Porsche. Thanks again, I’m sure I’ll enjoy the car
Just a message to say “Thank you ” for making buying my car so easy and straight forward!, I don`t think that I have parted with my money so easily in a long time !! We did not know of each other prior to my initial phone call, other than I had heard positive things from my current finance company. You did not disappoint ! I found you to be a man of your word, and for me the peace of mind that gives, is priceless !! Look forward to the next time !
From first call to exchange of cars a flawless experience. Howard was great to deal with. The best of all was visiting one of the most impressive classic car collections that I have seen so far.
I am extremely pleased with my purchase from Howard Wise. Howard was very straight forward to deal with and was a man of his word doing everything and more to ensure the car was in perfect condition. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Howard Wise to anyone considering buying a car from him.
Just had my second car collected from Howard in 13 months without seeing it. A car dealer of honesty and integrity, it’s a pleasure doing business with him
After scouting around for a car in main dealerships for several months I was let down more often than not by hard sales tactics and a thin veneer of service. The fact that Howard is a dealer is where the similarity ends. Howard is a specialist car enthusiast who is keen to share his passion with you as I found when I viewed my car in November. I found him straight forward, kind, conscientious, knowledgeable and helpful. There was no pressure and Howard is generous with his time, patient and fair. The car had a full and comprehensive history and was immaculately presented. Both Howard and Deborah are friendly, down to earth people who made my purchase simple and have remained in touch regularly to make sure everything is ok and have swiftly dealt with any necessary paperwork. I am now the very proud owner of my first (immaculate) Audi TT TFSI Sports Coupe
Just a few words to thank you for making the experience of buying a car from you a very pleasurable one. Other classic car dealers had spoken highly of your reputation and based upon this feedback I was happy to proceed with buying the car without even having met with you or seen the vehicle. When I did come up to visit I was over the moon with the car and the overall advice and customer service I received from your company. I would have no hesitation in buying other cars from you in the future. Best Regards
Just a few words of thanks for your friendly and outstanding service over the last couple of weeks. I’m absolutely delighted with both cars – exactly what I was looking for and quickly too. The coffee and conversation was a lovely added bonus.
This letter is to express my thanks and delight at having purchased the Jaguar XKR from you. Your attention to detail and your assistance, delivered in such a personal style, gave me every confidence that your offer was reliable and trustworthy.
Thanks for being good guys to do business with today. Buying a car was never as enjoyable. The weather helped, too. Don’t get carried away but it was truly a pleasure. How I like to do business on that kind of know-it, want-it, no-issue basis. I usually deal with folks who are cagey, wary, hard-to-please. Thanks
I am writing to express my sincere thanks for providing me with the most enjoyable, confidence inspiring and professional buying experience. It is rare these days to be able to agree matters verbally and seal them by way of a handshake…. Good reputations and sustained commitment to high standards take considerable time to create yet can be lost in an instant. Clearly you conduct your business with that fully in mind
