A totally positive buying experience from initial enquiry to final purchase. Kevin was very helpful and there was absolutely no pressure to buy at any time. We will definitely return when we are looking for another car in the future. and would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family. My daughter loves her new car.

Lee was helpful from the minute we walked in and was pleasant and NOT pushy. Had great advice on finance and part exchange. We were made to feel very welcome and not forced to purchase any vehicle. We are over the moon with the service and quality of vehicle we bought and would buy from here again and will recommend to anyone.

I knew as soon as i saw the quality of cars that I would be purchasing a car from this garage. There was no hassle or pushy sales just good old honest help and knowledge. The car is absolutely spot on.

Finding them can be a little tricky, but we had no problems with the buying process, the cars are well presented and the service is friendly and pressure-free. They gave us no problems despite a two-week delay between us selecting the car and making final payment
John Stevens
Great buying experience!, I arrived to look at a car and was left to look round the car with no “pushy salesman” the guys there were great, really welcoming and happy to answer any questions, I was happy with the car and we negotiated a price which I was happy with, I’m so pleased with my new car, I haven’t had it long although I don’t doubt if I had any issues they would be happy to help, although it makes no difference to purchasing a car I have to mention just how impressed I was with the guys there, they engaged with my young daughter whilst I was filling in paper work making the whole process easy, just genuine nice people! With a good sense of humour and to me that makes the world of difference! Thanks guys!!

Mr Mark Milnes
Would highly recommend this company very helpful, they are generally nice people and will have you driving away within the hour. thank you L & S Appleyard.
Lee West
Appleyard offer great service and quality products. We were left to look at the vehicles with no pressure at all. Keys offered for any Cars you are interested in. Part exchange arranged and all done in about 1 hour. New car collected the next day, great service, would highly recommend and love the new car. Hope the weather improves so I can take the car out and take off the soft top.
Appleyards have sought out and located the car that ticked all my boxes. I have just taken delivery and the experience was quick, friendly and extremely helpful. The car was beautifully presented, taxed and fuelled up as requested. They even sorted my insurance transfer so I was able to drive it away within minutes. Excellent service, friendly team, hassle-free shopping and perfect car. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Brilliant service. Lovely people. Love my Vauxhall Meriva. Would defiantly recommend anybody looking for a great deal. Thanks again . From Karen and Dave Vickers.

Everybody was so friendly and helpful made you feel at ease as soon as you walked through the door I would recommend anyone to go to them if they want a vehicle
Philip Martin
We decided to replace our old estate car 'workhorse' with a newer model. We agreed that we would buy as cheaply as possible privately / auction or pay a bit more and from a main dealer with the reassurances that brings with it. In the end we did neither. After some searching we found the right car, 5 years old with lowish mileage and in good condition at L & S Appleyard.
The sale and purchase process was friendly, and hassle free.
Once we had it home we got the mechanic who has looked after our cars for years to give it the once over and he confirmed that it was mechanically as good as it looked so we are happy with our purchase.
Carol & Richard Walker
Extremely efficient and professional car dealer
We were met by the salesman who was friendly, very helpful and knowledgeable. Our business was conducted quickly, easily and without fuss or bother. We are delighted with our new purchase from L & S Appleyard and would sincerely recommend this business to anyone looking for a new car.
Cath C
Just bought a lovely BMW X1 ...fantastic customer service. Steve was very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble!.. A proper 'customer service' no hard sell...genuinely nice people, making what can be a stressful situation very pleasant. Will definitely use them again and recommend to others!! Very happy with my 'NEW TOY! !!!!
Steven Evans
Just bought a 13 plate Volvo V60 from L & S. Customer Service was excellent (even collection from the train station) no problems at all and the car is more than I had hoped for the amount paid. An absolute bargain and I will look to buy from these guys again when my partners car needs replacing. Very happy !
Andrew Murgett
We've just bought a lovely Citroen DS3 from Steve. It's an absolute beauty. Steve's sales manner was supportive, helpful and pleasant, and most of all not 'pushy'. Many thanks, Stuart & Kerry.
Stuart Smith
This is the second car from this company in a month. Same friendly service . Pleasure to deal with Steve and Kevin. Hopefully it will be a long time before we see you guys again. Ha Ha

Very lovely people so chilled and happy to help you. They will go the extra mile for you. Plus I got there around the time they was closing and they was happy to stay open until we was satisfied to find out what we needed to know.
Rachael C
Just bought a 13 plate Vauxhall Astra estate, really happy with car and a special thanks to Kevin who assisted me with everything. Excellent customer service and high quality cars. Very happy.
Just taken delivery of a BMW from L & S Appleyard and I can honestly say the whole process was a breeze. No pressure at any stage...just good 'old fashioned' customer service. Thanks very much, we hope to see you again when we need another car.
Alan Martin
Just bought an 11 plate Focus Zetec from these guys, and very happy. Customer service was excellent, and nothing was too much trouble for them. Very Happy.

Recently bought a high spec mini cooper countryman SD. First of all can I just say whenever I choose to get a new car again I will be coming back to these guys. Kev was an absolute top bloke! I really can't say enough good things about them. We drove over from Barnsley as we had seen their website and saw our dream car! They left us to do our own thing and never once pressured us. We later asked for more info and they were so helpful.

We had a test drive and from that minute we knew this was the car for us. Kev sorted everything out for us, he even helped us set our tax out.

It's the little things that make smaller businesses brilliant! I know I must have wrote this 3 or 4 times but wow! Wonderful service, ever so polite and understanding.

Without doubt the best car buying experience I've ever had. We've promised ourselves that we will stay loyal to appleyards, they truly have been fantastic.

Thanks again, Kev! Top, top bloke. If I could give more than 5 stars I would
Daniel Cooper
Great place run by great people. Always helpful... also after sale. Highly recommended
Tomasz Paszulewicz
A hidden gem, that is more appropriate name for L&S Appleyard. High quality cars and a professional team make this place a perfect choice for taking your business to. Kevin was very helpful in taking us through the whole procedure of part ex and paperwork. We had a nice time and ended up with a great new car. Excellent service - highly recommend!
Agnes and Ieva
Excellent service from initial contact through "car guru" to purchase of Skoda Fabia. The whole process was swift and efficient. Kevin made our experience with Appleyards extremely pleasant. We recommend these motor traders and hopefully will use them in the future. Thank you.
Mark & Julia Walker
We went to buy a Sedona from L and S Appleyard and they couldn't have been more helpful, no pressure so we went with them.
Niall Miller
Excellent service
Ken Gaskell
Really great genuine guys who give honest helpful advice leaving the car selection entirely up to you. Have already recommended to family and friends and now I'm letting you lot know too.
Scott Brady
A very pleasant experience when buying a car. I found they had a car of interest from the web. Read some testimonials and decided to pay a visit. The cars was shown to me and I had a test drive. At no stage did I receive any pressure to buy, they answered all my questions very knowledgably when I said I was interested they inspected my car and made me a fair trade in valuation. Whilst completing the sale I felt very comfortable that I was being dealt with by competent people. I left a small deposit and agreed that the car would be prepared for collection in an agreed time period. Today, 30th June I collected the car and handed over my car. The paper work was ready when I arrived, I paid the money and then accepted the car as ready. Lee then assisted me in making sure my mobile was connected to the Bluetooth and I left. Probably the best stress free change of car I have experienced in my life
Peter Sharp
Laid back, friendly, professional service. The vehicles we looked at were prepared to a high standard and the sale went very smoothly. Only one criticism, and it's perhaps the thing we all hate most when collecting a car from a showroom, there was only enough fuel in the car to get me 13 miles. An oversight on their part and Kevin was very apologetic. I'd definitely suggest checking this place out if you're in the market for a car.
Chris Wilson
Even though the car wasn`t what i wanted the dealer was really quick in responding.
Excellent friendly and helpful service
We were met by one of the salesmen (Lee) when we arrived who was immediately happy to unlock cars we were interested in, even allowing us to try the pushchair in the boots for size. A very friendly and helpful service without being pushy. We didn't feel harassed or hounded, instead Lee's friendly and relaxed approach made the experience very easy and enjoyable, almost like car shopping with a friend rather than a salesman. All the cars we looked at were well presented. It was no problem to test drive and within minutes we were out on the road. The outcome; we purchased the car with 12 months MOT provided and was able to drive away within a couple of hours of first arriving. Fantastic service - would highly recommend.
Sarah Oldman
Fantastic company with great staff.
What a fantastic company to do business with! Purchased a great car from L & S Appleyard this morning and had a lovely morning chatting and laughing while sorting the paperwork out. Then drove off with our new car. Will not hesitate to recommend this great company and the wonderful staff.
Andrew Cross
Went to view a Mini Cooper D on Saturday, the car was absolutely stunning. I found that the garage were easy enough to find, the two guys that I dealt with were amazing, they were not pushy they left me to look around the car at ease, asked to test drive the car no problems were straight out on the road. I found that I felt very comfortable and were able to take as much time as I needed to make the decision of purchase or not. I would highly recommend this garage!!! A STAR SERVICE!!!
