"From finding Alex to him leaving my house with my part exchange has been a refreshing change. He was welcoming when we saw the car down in the New Forest, and we felt very relaxed speaking with him. He was upfront and the videos he did of the car did not disappoint. He took us on a good test drive and let my wife go mad in the car as well. A deal was struck in which I came away feeling he had been very fair. He also offered to drive the new car back to my home some 50 miles away, leaving half a tank of petrol. All in all if the car goes as well as it looks I shall personally recommend to friends family, and would be using him again as he can locate cars for you as well"


"From first contacting Alex to the delivery of my vehicle, customer service and all documentation was dealt with in a professional manner. I only seen my new car on Apsley Cars website and all detail of car was shown by photo and video was correct, also Alex told me any time I need to call I should have no hesitation to contact him once again I would like to thank Alex for is honesty from start to finish"


"I worked with Alex for 3 months to help find me the right car, I’m very lucky to have found a patient car dealer who was flexible, and actually listened to what I was after, rather than just trying to sell me the next car he had in stock. I’m really pleased with both the car and the service I received, and have actually referred 2 close friends to him as a result. Having seen how Alex works & the quality of car he looks to source, I’d have absolutely no hesitation to use Apsley Cars again, and will be when the time comes to look for something else. Thank you Alex!"


“Have dealt with Apsley Cars on a couple of occasions both being very good experiences. Always on hand to help with questions and queries. Very trustworthy and reliable. A great experience.”

Robin & Barbara

“We would very much like to thank you for finding us the car that we required. You went to a lot of trouble, were extremely understanding of our needs. You provided a rare caring, trustworthy and reliable service to us.”


“We found Alex at Apsley Cars by chance and I’m so pleased we did. He’s a man that does as he says. We were searching for a small runaround that was cheap to run for my husband to get to work. Alex had a fabulous little Aygo that he’d sourced and we bought it after a week of seeing so many mis-described cars. Alex’s standards are high. The description ‘like new’ was absolutely right… the Aygo was like new and still under warranty. The location is close to the motorway with plenty of parking and he’d prepared the car ready for us to take it out. It was lovely and clean and presented well, ready to take for a spin! Cars we’d seen elsewhere were filthy … beggers belief people would present a car like that with a view to sell! Everything was as described by Alex, including the paperwork which all organised and in order. After going ahead with the purchase, he kindly went the extra mile and delivered the car to us as we were only two miles away. You never mind giving your own hard earned cash to people that work hard for it and Alex is no exception to this. He’s running a professional and well organised business and we’ll be recommending him to everyone. Car hunting is a tough job and I don’t we don’t enjoy changing cars at all, when we come to upgrade our SMax, we’ll be speaking to Alex to source our next car! Thank you Alex”.


“The service provided by Apsley Cars was fantastic. Alex couldn’t have been more helpful and I’m very pleased with my new car. Thank you!”.


“Alex has helped me on two occasions – once to buy a new car (and trade in ours) and once for some professional advice on trade in prices so I could help advise my parents on their purchase through another garage. Both times his service, manner and expertise in the industry have shone through. Not only that but he really makes everything so transparent (in an industry famed for doing the opposite!), he is a true pleasure to do business with”.


“Good friendly service. Car was in top condition and good value for money and I received a good trade in price for my old car”.


“Great friendly service and communications, very easy to deal with. Car was as described in advert, many thanks Apsley Cars”.


“I came across Alex’s website via Autotrader and was very impressed with the design and carefully picked cars. Alex definitely went an extra mile by picking me up from the train station and holding the car for me for almost a week with a very reasonable deposit. He also did some work to the car and made sure it is in top condition before handing it over to me. Great value and superb customer service. Highly recommended if you are looking for a second hand car from a reliable dealer!”.


“Just bought a great car with Apsley Cars. Alex was flexible and went the extra mile (pardon the pun!) for us. It was especially helpful as first time buyers as we received an honest and thorough service from him. Needless to say we snatched the car up”.


“Polite, friendly and professional. I have been very happy with the car I purchased, got a great deal and Alex went out of his way to help me get the car home. Would highly recommend”.


“Very friendly and helpful, would recommend to friends and family”.


"I saw how Alex works and the level of service he offers, as my partner had recently bought his Golf TDi from Alex. So when I asked him to assist me in helping sell my own personal vehicle, I was pleasantly surprised that not only he said yes (rare for a used car sales place to want to help) but he yet again went the extra mile for me, advertising the car, holding viewings, and in the end successfully finding a new home for my car for someone else to enjoy. It’s this type of dedication to upholding the service he provides that really makes Alex stand out from the sea of tradespeople that are just after your money. As a female, I want to know I can trust a car sales company and this is exactly what I get from Alex. When it’s time to give back my company car and get something of my own, I know I could turn back to Alex for a completely trustworthy & reliable service. Thank you Alex!" :)


"After being in a car accident six weeks ago with my partner he was devastated that he lost his Skoda Fabia VRS, with his insurance money he wanted to find one! Bad experience on the weekend with another garage in Somerset we took our chances on Monday and came to Alex! What an amazing guy honestly, from the first phone call he was totally honest and a really nice person, helping sort out tax anything we asked he had answers, to the phone call we received later on from Alex to see if we got back ok. Can not fault one bit, and we hope to do more business in the future for sure! Josh is in love with his Skoda Fabia VRS and its better than what he had! So thank you for helping us at this hard time! Hope to see you again soon!"


"After looking everywhere for the perfect car we found it at Small cars direct!! Alex was so helpful and friendly, really put us at ease as I’d never bought a car on PCP finance before. Great communication throughout and even delivered the car to us! I’m so happy with my purchase and love my beautiful mint green Fiat 500. Thank you so much Small Cars Direct! Highly recommended :)"


“Was a good experience buying with Small cars direct. I enquired about a valuation to part exchange my car and received instant advice on this. The next day, at a time to suit me, I went and viewed the vehicle. Had a very good test drive and all enquiries and questions I had about buying and selling were answered. The car was prepared and delivered only a few days later to my address, which was really convinient and helpful due to my working hours. My old car was part exchanged at a good value and I am now enjoying a great little car after a smooth buying and selling process.”


“Very good, did a good deal for me being disabled, did help with all.”


“Just bought a lovely 2007 Fiesta Zetec Climate, for my eldest daughter about to take her test, from Alex at Small Cars Direct. Huge amount of information and guidance found on the website and arranged a viewing at very short notice. Lovely location in the New Forest and Alex had everything ready for us to inspect when we arrived. The Fiesta was in excellent condition and we were able to take it out for a test-drive.
Happy to purchase the car immediately because Alex had prepared everything and documentation demonstrated a recent annual service (last week), new MOT (valid for nearly 13 months), detailed inspection, full service history and 5-point promise. So we knew it’s full history, no active HPI agreement, not previously written off etc.

Alex was extremely professional and very friendly. No stone was left unturned. We taxed the car on-line during the purchase and have had email confirmation that it has been taxed for 12 months. He has sent off the logbook, the V5C form for us, so we will expect that in the post in a few weeks. We also have a warranty agreement for 3 months valid up to £250 per claim which was complimentary and covered a large number of parts and on top of that, he personally delivered the car to us in Poole this morning with all the remaining documentation, manuals, spare key etc., getting a train back to base himself.

Buying a second hand car can be a daunting, scary and worrying experience but I couldn’t have asked for an easier, more reassuring or pleasant experience than the one we’ve just had with Alex and Small Cars Direct. You can certainly buy with confidence because everything has been checked, all the documentation is valid and up to date and the service is friendly and very professional. I would recommend them highly to anyone. Thank you again”.


“Really impressed with my car, from Small Cars Direct! Alex was really helpful, and no pushy car sales here! Would definitely use again! Car has travelled up to Kent & back since had it”.


"After seeing an advert, with a good video, for a car on Autotrader I contacted Alex at Small Cars Direct for a viewing/test drive. From the outset Alex was a pleasure to do business with. He has a great attention to detail and rightly takes pride in the way he presents his stock. He goes that extra step in customer care and with regards to the condition in which he delivers the vehicles. No hesitation in recommending Small Cars Direct".


“Our recent experience of purchasing a car from Alex at Small Cars Direct was second to none – not like any other car dealer, pleasant, knowledgeable and nothing too much trouble.

The video of the car on the website was really helpful!! Would highly recommend to others”.


“After looking for an MR2 for a while now, I saw Alex had a lovely little one for sale. We took our chances and turned up unannounced! Alex was incredibly welcoming and helpful right from the start.

We spent hours looking at the car, I took it for a test drive and he even put it on the ramps so we could look underneath and offered us all drinks; so he was very patient considering we just turned up on Easter Sunday of all times! We’ve had a fantastic experience buying from Alex and would definitely recommend him to anyone. He really went above and beyond our expectations. Thank you!!! :)”


“I’ve known Alex since school and knew I was dealing with a genuine and reliable guy when looking for a reasonably priced car. I went for a Skoda Fabia vRS 55 plate. I couldn’t be happier for the price. Great little car and Alex was really easy and helpful to deal with.”


"Bought Lexus IS F

From start to finish the whole process was flawless. Alex is a great communicator and was so professional in every way.

Normally i do not like buying from a dealer but Alex is an exception and I will definitely use again…..having said that I love my Lexus IS F and intend to keep it for a while!

Cheers buddy."


“Very positive experience from start to finish. A highly personable service provided which made for an enjoyable buying experience. Would highly recommend and would definitely use again in the future.”


“Alex was brilliant….professional throughout the process of finding me a second hand car. He was very helpful and I was right to trust him and I would and have recommended him to friends and family. Great service with after care offered which gives me peace if mind.”


“Only one problem. They are some thirty miles from where we live and we had a little difficulty finding them – our fault.”


“A nice, small dealership in a great location within the new forest with a pleasant atmosphere. The staff are kind and welcoming. There is much freedom to take your own pace. The finance and warranty packages are clearly and concisely explained. The part exchange valuation on my car was competitive.”


“Alex was very professional and friendly from the start. He really knows his stuff, giving expert advice and was very trustworthy. He even delivered my new car to my office in Bristol just because he wanted to help me out. Alex found me my car and delivered it in just a few days, amazing service! Couldn’t recommend Small Cars Direct any more. Thank you!”


“I had an excellent service from start to finish, alex sourced me my Toyota Yaris in just a few days which is still going strong, a reliable car, exactly what I wanted, my sister is now a customer of Alex’s too and can’t recommend highly enough, I’ll be coming back for my upgrade.”


“I don’t enjoy buying a car. I’m a nervous, wary and often disappointed buyer. I like to buy a car comfortable that it will give me many reliable years of motoring and still look good. The buying experience with Alex was the best so far. He is honest, diligent and particular; meaning you get great service and the reassurance you need that he also wants to give you a car you’ll be pleased with. Cannot recommend highly enough and I’d probably ask him to source my next car for me. A relaxed and enjoyable morning giving me an excellent car at a reasonable price.”


“Over the moon with my new car from Small Cars Direct, genuinely great service, thank you so much Alex, very happy !!!”


“I cannot speak highly enough about small cars direct. They offer a very high end service, and I could not fault them. I bought a Mercedes Benz C63 recently, and I had it personally delivered by Alex. The professionalism and customer service was fantastic from start to finish. I would highly recommend them to anyone. An absolute credit to them. Simon (South Lake District).”


“Since from the start I felt with confidence and at peace to buy a car from Alex, professional and honest is some of the qualities you will find when meeting him. Truly recommend.”


“I purchased my Mercedes E class and found that the service was excellent, from start to finish, I even had my car delivered to my home address.
I will be using the company again, and I highly recommend them.”


“Buying from Alex was more like buying from a private enthusiast than a car dealer. It’s clear that cars are his passion and it makes him very comfortable to deal with. He very patiently waited while we sorted out insurance. Alex made us feel welcome and was very relaxed while we examined the car. It was a very pleasant buying experience and considering we live nearly three hours away, was well worth the trip.”


“My husband surprised me by buying me a car from Alex at Small Cars Direct today! Alex has found me a beautiful red MX5 which looks great and drives so well, I am beyond chuffed with it! Alex, thank you so much for being a part of this amazing surprise.”


“Just collected my new very blue Peugeot 308 VTi from Alex, what a helpful, knowledgable and nice guy. All the correspondence we had a few days before I collected were promptly answered, sometimes above and beyond what I have ever experienced before in the life of a car salesperson. Alex makes you feel most welcome, the location is beautiful and worthy of a drive just to see the forest.

I will and have already recommend Alex to family and friends and hope that this will bring Alex some more business and more 5 star reviews. Good luck Alex and thank you!”


“Very genuine and pleasant buyer – a very easy transaction – Thank you Alex!”


“From our first contact until the last, it was a very professional and polite service. Very helpful with delivering car and no pressure if we decided not to buy. Made such a refreshing change from the normal car dealers. Gave us a better price for our trade in car too, more than our local garage had offered us! Would not hesitate in recommending this company.”


“My experience was really good, Alex new everything about the car and the amount of detail and photos showing on AutoTrader was outstanding. It was my first car and he didn’t push me to make any decisions, he just left it up to me. I had a good 20 minuets test drive which helped me make my decision. I was given all the past paperwork and a thorough up to date car inspection form. I would really recommend Small Cars Direct to anyone looking to by a car.”


“Really nice guy, friendly and honest. He deserves success! Car was in really good condition and drives really well.”


“A friendly and professional business with ease and flexibility to work with. Alex was key to finalising the deal, forming an instant rapport he is helpful and very trusting.”


“Great service from start to finish, cannot fault the whole process. Alex is a genuine and reliable dealer and made me feel completely at ease when buying my first car. Very happy customer and would highly recommend.”


“So pleased with my new Peugeot 308, Alex is a very pleasent and honest car dealer, doesnt pressure you at all, he will find the right car for you. I would highly recommend Small Cars Direct.”


“Absolutely great service! Had no idea Alex was in Minstead… what a great find. Car is great, couldn’t be happier.”


“Small cars direct were quick and easy to deal with. They didn’t try and sugar coat things, and were very transparent. They have a great selection of cars, which are all very well presented.”


"I just wanted to say thank you to Alex , the service he provided is well beyond what you would expect and all with a smile, I would have no hesitation in recommending Small Cars Direct to anyone looking for a car."


"Just bought my first car at small cars direct. Absolutely fantastic experience. Would definitely recommend to everyone. Thank you so much."


"Good seller did everything to help and sort things that needed to be sorted would highly recommend."


"Such a great company to deal with. Very pleased with how smoothly the part exchange of my car went, He sorted everything out and was very helpful. would defiantly look here first when buying another car. It is good to know that if I have any problems there is a 3 month Warranty if needed."


“Excellent service!!! Very friendly and helpful. I have no knowledge of cars whatsoever but every thing was explained to me in detail from start to finish. Drove away a very happy customer in my new little car I can highly recommend. You will not be disappointed with the service”.


“Great service and very helpful with getting car to me after purchase.”


“I was very very pleased with the service and car I bought today, delighted with the car I bought and the service. Would recommend this car dealer to my friends, and in the future if we need another car would certainly use again. There service was 1st. Class Ann Fernyhough”.


“first class dealer very helpful. car was in tip top condition”.


“An absolute pleasure to do business with. Easy transaction with car delivered to local station. I highly recommended these people”.


“Very friendly and professional. All our questions were answered immediately and we never felt pushed or rushed into making a decision”.


“A1 service. Perfect car for me. The whole buying experience was first class.”


“Our experience of buying our Alfa was brilliant. The owner made the whole process so easy and from the minute we found the advert on Autotrader we had a good feeling. He took lots of photos and a very detailed video which made the decision to travel to him easy. Thee car was in excellent condition, really clean and all the paperwork was in order. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Alex again or to recommend. Thanks A!”


“Excellent service!!! Very friendly and helpful. I have no knowledge of cars whatsoever but every thing was explained to me in detail from start to finish. Drove away a very happy customer in my new little car I can highly recommend Apsley cars. You will not be disappointed with the service.”


It’s hard to add to the other reviews and say something that hasn’t already been said. I sourced a car from Small Cars Direct and bought it without having seen it or driven it, so good was the level of HONEST information Alex supplied me, a dealer who’s real and prepared to openly share the faults as well as the good points. Lots of photos on FB messenger, plus walkround videos so you know EXACTLY what you’re getting. Let’s be honest, my car is 12 years old (120K miles) so it’s wasting my time to tell me it’s “mint”. Using SCD has saved a huge amount of time viewing cars locally only to be disappointed, and allows you to cast a wider “net” for vehicles that you couldn’t practically visit. My VRS was delivered personally by Alex, a friendly and knowledgeable person. The whole experience was professional, courteous and smooth and based on my experience I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Small Cars Direct. It was refreshing to find a dealer with real integrity, honesty and no BS in these troubled times. Good people are still out there !


“Amazing service and so knowledgeable! Went above & beyond with everything. As well as picking me up from the station, they even made sure I had fuel to get safely to my destination as I was travelling alone. Also provided advice regarding buying a private registration & made up and fitted the plates for me. 5 stars does not do them justice!“


“Really good and friendly service, will fix any faults with the car straight away! Genuinely nice and helpful service, responding to messages really quickly trying to be as helpful and polite as possible. Would highly recommend!”


“I bought my second car from Alex at Apsley Cars last week and after not having much experience buying cars he made it all so easy! Very friendly and helpful guy who i’d definitely recommend to anyone!”


“We recently bought a Kia Rio from Alex and so far, we are very happy with it. The car itself was in excellent condition inside and out and runs very smoothly. We asked Alex if he would consider changing one of the brake pads but, very kindly, he changed all four of them for us and got it ready for pick up within a couple of days. There was no high pressure sales pitch, instead Alex left us alone to discuss and make up our own minds about the car. We would definitely return.”


“Excellent experience buying from Alex. Alex was very communicative- responding to emails really quickly, providing in depth videos and detailed photos. Car arrived (via transporter) in excellent condition and spotless clean. Communication via WhatsApp was also very helpful and enabled a quick decision to be made in buying the SLK. I would certainly recommend. The car is fantastic.”


“Honest review of car and not at all pushy which was a nice change. Honest and excellent customer service.”


“Friendly and professional service in a nice place. The car was as described and I have had no problems with the car since.”


“Polite, helpful, and straightforward to deal with. A pleasure to work with. Good car dealer for high quality second hand cars. Thank you.”


“Friendly / approachable / went the extra mile. Overall very positive experience. Would definitely recommend them. Positive experience.”


"Extremely friendly and informative service. Went the extra mile and delivered the car. Car was extremely well presented and was accurate to everything I had been told about the car through ad, email, calls etc. Would happily recommend to friends and buy from again!"


“Bought my car on the 17/01/19 from Alex. Noticed within few days the car won’t start after work. I sat in the car tried starting for 15 minutes & Ignition started. Within 2 days in the morning suppose to be driving for work it won’t start. Took 20/30mins to get it to start.

Rung Alex & he advised to get it checked. My local mechanic checked & advised there is nothing wrong with the car however if it continues need to bring it back. Unfortunately the problem persisted. Alex suggested to bring the car in to have it checked on the 19/2/29. He first checked the key fob in case the battery needed replacement. The fob was okay. He couldn’t find any fault either and suggested he might have to find me another car. Left New Forest back to Portsmouth no problem. Later in the evening needed to park on my designated parking lot. The car won’t start and a neighbor had to manually push me to parking.

It was late in the evening & sent Alex a message that he can start with the process of looking out for another car. Within 24hours Alex managed to get me the best in Mini Cooper. I can’t thank him enough. Alex’s service is very rare if none in this day & age. Attention to details of what a client need. Great communication skills. Great smile. Feel free to add my endorsement in the future for any promotional material you might have.”


“Alex helped me to find my Mercedes GLC and its everything I hoped for. I was being very particular in all the extras I wanted. Also he took in my Mercedes SLK as part exchange which made the sell very easy and stress free which is very important to me not having the spare time to search and sell my old car. Recommend anyone who is searching for any car to contact Alex.

A genuine and trustworthy car salesman.”


“I’ve purchased two cars from SCD and the service has been top notch on both occasions. I would (and do) recommend to anyone looking for a car.”


“Really happy with my new Hyundai! I needed a replacement car quickly as my old one had died. I didn’t have a big budget but felt that despite this Alex took good care of me as a customer, giving the same service as might be expected for someone spending a lot more money.

The car is in great condition and was delivered to my home at a convenient time less than two days after the initial viewing. There was a problem with the car stereo which Alex pointed out to me immediately on viewing the car and said he would fix before selling. He was able to install a replacement stereo in less than 48hrs for me prior to delivery. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alex to friends.”


"Alex came and viewed my car, he gave me a fair price for it. Refreshing to find such a nice young man making his way with his own business. Highly recommended and will, for sure, keep his card handy. Thanks Alex for making it all go smoothly."


“Getting a car from Small Cars Direct was a lovely experience. It is located in a rural area and the atmosphere was very relaxed and not pushy at all. As I live relatively close by, my Fiesta was delivered to me and the tank had been filled to a decent level.

It has been running nicely since. Will definitely be recommending to friends and family in search of a motor. Thank you!”


“I am very pleased with the car i bought. We were kept well informed throughout the buying process and which was completed smoothly. A genuine 5 star experience, thank you.”


"I feel I owe Alex (the proprietor) a comprehensive review due to the excellent and outstanding service he provided me as a potential customer and then real customer! I had been looking out for sensibly priced Porsche 911 on and off over the last couple of years, after I’d sold my previous Carrera 3.2 5 years ago before moving overseas. After a long period of monitoring the market I came to realise that a 996 was my best option and stumbled across Alex’s smallcarsdirect business which seems to specialise in this particular Porsche variant, amongst a range of other cars.

After contacting Alex initially to clarify a few facts about the car, I felt assured that I was dealing with a competent professional who cared about what he was doing and was very transparent about the vehicle and all aspects of the sale. It all sounded good on paper, internet, email and phone – I was clear about anything about the car that wasn’t perfect – it’s a 16 year old vehicle with over 100k miles so expect it to show some signs of use! I booked an appointment to see Alex and the 911 on a glorious morning in April. Alex certainly puts himself in the shoes of the customer which was evident from the start by offering me to have a “look around the car on my own” or “would I prefer him to show me around the car”. Everyone’s different and Alex gets that – I opted for 10 minutes on my own to have a good look around in and outside of the vehicle, whilst Alex made me a cup of tea!

Alex was also extremely accommodating around my request for a pre-purchase inspection – Alex was able to drive the car to a local Porsche specialist where it was put up on the ramps to check over. Overall, I was happy with the car as it was offered, so one thing led to another and we agreed a deal to include an additional key (only one was present with the car) and to include resolution of a fuel gauge issue of which he’d previously notified me, with a view to collect and pay for the car a couple of weeks later after the Easter break after a valet/polish and the pre-purchase inspection.

Alex let me know just before I was due to collect it that he identified a weep on the power steering pipe that wasn’t evident previously, so he offered to have that replaced (labour & parts) before I picked up the car – much appreciated Alex.

Sourcing a factory key and having it programmed by Porsche turned out to be a surprisingly logistical mountain to climb, however Alex again did a great job of sorting all of this out for me (logistics and costs) and enabled me to collect the key from my local Porsche centre at a convenient time. He also honoured his commitment to remedy the fuel gauge issue – which was organised and paid for by Alex to be completed by a local (to me) independent – so a great service all together, many thanks.

I would certainly go back to Alex for a future car purchase and would recommend him and his business – he really stands out from the crowd".


"Alex was very polite friendly professional and patient. Nothing like your usual salesman. It was so much easier than trawling through the dealers and websites. I am delighted with the car I ended up with. The best car I have had. Would definitely recommend."


"I bought my six-year-old Honda Jazz from Alex in September 2019. I am absolutely delighted with this lovely car, which has every feature I wanted and drives so smoothly and nicely. Thank you Alex, for the car and for taking the trouble to stay late as we could only get to you in the evening."


"Without doubt, the easiest car purchase I’ve ever made. Alex was professional and polite and went out of his way to make the process smooth and simple. Very happy with new car. Fair price given for PX. I will be recommending Small Cars Direct to family and friends and will definitely be back when we need to purchase another ourselves."


“I lost my beloved 15yr old automatic Micra (22500ml).. which was written off by Another! I was used to Micras, and didn’t want to go back to manuaI, nor was able to travel far to view anything. It seemed I would have to wait indefinitely, because I’m someone who would normally be really reluctant to stop and even look at any second hand car dealers’ stock, (such is the thought of what salesmanship I may have to tolerate). That may sound unfair, but as an ‘older’ lady who knows nothing about cars…! But hopefully those days are gone? Finally I saw an Ad for a Micra that could be just right for me and not too far away. My husband agreed so after a phone call, to a very helpful Alex I was then reminded about lockdown, meaning we couldn’t visit him to view. However, he offered to bring it to me. I found that a bit disconcerting really, because it’s not something that I’d heard of. He then said “have you seen the Video?” I hadn’t, but after looking, I was even more convinced that the car was for me. My husband also agreed, then even trusted friends who I’d forwarded the Advert to, (after seeing the Video).. also were impressed. Apart from Alex going all over and inside the car whilst videoing and explaining exactly what he’s seeing, which was great.. this young man really does come across as genuine. A few days later, true to his word the car was delivered to our door.. and all was exactly as he had described. My experience was such a pleasure, and couldn’t have been easier for me. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending his company to anyone who sees his Small Cars Direct Ads, but please watch his videos.”


"I recently bought an automatic Honda Jazz from Alex and I love it. Within two days I made contact, told Alex what I wanted, he sourced the car for me and I collected it. The whole process from start to finish was excellent, Alex is friendly, trustworthy and helpful. He really knows his stuff when it comes to cars and goes the extra mile to help and ensure you feel satisfied. The car is running really well, thanks Alex!"


"Absolutely fantastic service. Alex was extremely friendly and professional. He kept me updated throughout the process and went out of his way to be helpful.
Would absolutely recommend Small Cars Direct, thankyou!"


Fantastic service by Alex & Sam.
Was not really looking to buy a new car until March 2021.
Saw the silver Kia Picanto GT-Line S that Alex was advertising on You-tube.
I was very impressed with the detail that Alex went into when showing the Picanto online. The photos of the car were very detailed as well.
The car ticked all the boxes & was just what I was looking for.
Enquired about the Car on Saturday, Spoke to Alex on Saturday night, Bought the car on Tuesday and had his friend Sam deliver the Car on a trailer to Oswaldkirk, North Yorkshire on Thursday morning.
First time I have bought a car online.
The service I got from Alex and his team at Small Cars Direct was excellent.
Highly Recommended.


Now what can we say about Alex Bradley and Small Cars Direct. Well O Lord this is probably the nices car dealer that Ihave ever had the pleasure of dealing with, Deep joy and many thanks.
From the time I engadge him he was up front with all the details of the car. When the car was delivered by Alex and his girlfriend Lisa it was as decribed in the advert, but when I pointed out that there was only one thing missing a retractable parcel shelf, he jump in and out of his own pocket he ordered one from the net which now finishes the car of.

Kind Regards Ivan Gordyk.


Having just purchased my car from Alex what can I say so helpful from start to finish. This was my best experience of buying a car everything went so smoothly thanks to Alex. I’m loving my new Vauxhall Corsa thankyou


Recently bought a very nice Volvo S40 from Alex.
The vehicle was thoroughly prepared and, in his video presentation, Alex had drawn attention to any and all percieved faults, most of which were so minor as to be otherwise unnoticable!
All round service was excellent, and Alex was able to answer all questions and to quickly sort out all documentation and road tax.
Perhaps most importantly, the vehicle was very fairly priced- several hundred pounds cheaper than some similar models found online.
I would highly recommend this company!

Calum Noble-Gresty

Alex is a small cars dealer with a fantastic reputation when trawling through google reviews. I am pleased to add to that ever growing reputation of being honest, thorough, reliable, knowledgeable and likeable. Alex bought a car from me with no hassle at all, made it easy from start to finish, did a quick test drive and bought the car for the agreed price. Very professional throughout and even had time to give me solid advice about a car I was considering purchasing. Small cars direct is not like any other small cars dealer they think about the customer and work hard to form a good relationship. Thank you Alex and at some point in the future I will be back to you with no hestitation.
