Martin & Kerry McPake
I applied for a car on finance today from Nick and Gary, as a older person who has luckily past my driving test 1st time, I never thought I would be able to afford a car., lovely people, great service and today I am able to have the freedom I always wanted. A lovely car to get myself out and about independently. I Would recommend 1stop Buy And Drive to everyone. Thank you Regards Lynn x

Kirsten Wressell
This is a true story and although quite embarrassing I need to show my appreciation to Nick and the gang. Nick has got me cars over the years, rebuilding my credit along the way. To the point I had the top of the range BMW, I got into some financial difficulties due to separation with my long term partner. This mean about 2 years ago I had to terminate my finance deal and hand the car back, few years later when I was back on my feet no one would touch me due to the mark on my file. Nick went absolutely above and beyond on sourced me a new car, not only that he got me an amazing rate also. Couldn't be more please at all. Like I've said before, this is my fourth car Nick has sourced me and the service is outstanding, even down to the finer details and the complimentary little bits and bobs. I am so pleased right now, I was driving an absolute banger yesterday and today I'm riding alone in a 66 plate car. Thanks guys
Billy Gray

Hi, I visited "1st Stop Buy & Drive to purchase a car, I was dealt with by Gary Farrell and Nick Langley. Their approach was very friendly and welcoming, showing an extreme caring interest for my concern to choose a vehicle. Gary and Nick realised my sense of confusion and frustration with the situation I was in, especially after I had to return a faulty car to a different dealer and finance company previously, I had from a dealership in Newcastle as it had multiple problems, and I needed a car as my baby daughter has a heart condition and they put in 110% effort to make sure I they could help get me sorted out. They continued to update me giving me confidence I had chose the correct dealership. Garry and Nick professionally narrowed my choices down tailored to suit me. I got the feeling that, his not just trying to just sell a car to make but actually his putting the customers needs first in a world class service style .I was able to walk out with a Vauxhall Insignia sri NAV 2.0 diesel and all the hassle had been taken away from me , always looking out to help my needs and meet any concerns .I rate as a top sales team who has the ability to take the car buying as for the customer to the next level Many thanks 1st stop buy and drive Mr Christopher Graham.
Chris Graham
The owner is a good honest decent man and did everything for me. The car was in immaculate condition and was a very reasonable price. I wouldn't go anywhere else now and would certainly recommend him.

I can not recommend this place enough. Turned up with my old car left 20 minutes later feeling like a million dollars in my new car. Nick and his team were extremely helpful and accommodating (especially when we live 4 hours away). They found the car we wanted and managed to get us a great affordable finance plan. Couldn’t be more happier!!
Cassie Faulks
I have bought 24 cars in my lifetime;23 of them being from franchised dealers,until now.So,when recently I had been let down badly by three franchised Volvo dealers,I happened to discover Nick Langley at 1st Stop Buy and drive Nick worked tirelessly to source the exact car that I wanted,to a T,and delivered it in an absolutely tip-top condition ,both inside and out.The car was nothing short of excellent.So,my advice to any would-be car purchasers,of any type of car,before you contact a franchised dealer,is give Nick Langley a shout- you won't be disappointed.
Once again fantastic out of this world customer service. I was desperate for a car Asap and Nick sorted me one out to take home straight away.. No pushy sales just whatever I felt comfortable with.. I highly recommend anyone needing a quality car to go see Nick.

Kayleigh Wilkinson
I needed a vehicle quite urgently, yet I was not pressured into buying something I didn't want. Also I was not offered just anything. Nick provided excellent customer service, keeping in constant contact with me, and managed to arrange my finance even thought I was not very well credit rated. The vehicle is absolutely pristine and been well prepared for my sale. One extremely happy customer who would certainly rate 1st stop buy and drive and Nick a fantastic 5 star.
Mrs Lindsay Whitehead
I recently purchased my new A Class Mercedes from 1st Stop Buy and Drive and I cannot recommend them enough! From start to finish the team made my purchase a very smooth process which was fast and efficient. They gave me outstanding service whilst obtaining my finance package, thoroughly explaining my options and keeping me updated at each stage. I was made to feel very at ease with any queries that I had and I was really impressed with deal they secured for me. Upon seeing the vehicle I couldn’t of been happier! I could tell that Nick and his team had gone above and beyond to ensure that the car was in immaculate condition for me. They even arranged delivery to my home as I couldn’t collect it during my working hours which massively helped me out! I can confirm without a doubt I will be purchasing my next vehicle from 1st Stop But and Drive, brilliant work guys thanks you!
