As per the latest Government directive our workshop & MOT bay remain open as normal. Due to the directive we are unable to sell vehicles from our showroom but we are able to sell them remotely via the internet or over the phone with delivery to your door (if you are local to us). Please phone Mike on 01234 855757 if you would like more information about this.
For the wellbeing of our customers & our colleagues we are frequently disinfecting such areas as door handles, doors, desks, the card machine, steering wheels, gear levers, car door handles & car keys etc. & we are washing our hands frequently & enforcing social distancing.
Please be aware that we operate a local collection & delivery service & so if you are unable or don't wish to leave your property we can come & collect your vehicle & return it to you when the work is complete.
AS A MARK OF APPRECIATION TO THOSE WORKING IN THE NHS WE WILL BE REDUCING THE COST OF NHS WORKER'S MOTS TO £30 DURING THE PERIOD OF THIS OUTBREAK. PLEASE MENTION THIS WHEN MAKING A BOOKING.
Please phone us on 01234 855757 if you have any questions about the above & most importantly of all please stay safe & well.
Kingsley Garage is a family owned business that has been based in Kempston near Bedford since 1978. In the past we have been Main Dealers for Lada (yes those square Russian cars!), Proton & more recently Hyundai. We left the Hyundai franchise in 2012 (as we didn't want to relocate) & have since been specialising in the sale of quality used cars & occasionally vans & the service, repair & MOT of all makes of vehicles.
To ensure the quality of the workmanship in our workshop & the service that our customers receive we subscribe to the Chartered Trading Standards Institute's approved Service & Repair Code via The Motor Ombudsman (formerly Motor Codes). We are also listed on the Trustagarage.com website (a subsidary of Trustatrader.com).
To find out what our previous customers think of us please look at our reviews on Google, Autotrader, Trust A Garage, Good Garage Scheme & Facebook.
Whenever you visit our showroom or workshop you can be sure of a warm welcome & professional advice in an unpressured environment.
Please look at our Contact Us page for opening times.
WHY SHOULD I BUY A CAR FROM KINGSLEY GARAGE?
We aim to buy the majority of our vehicles directly from local people as this way we know their full history & we also get some real gems. We occassionally top our stock up with vehicles that we have bought directly from Main Dealers where they have been taken in part exchange & the dealer is unable to retail them because they are non-franchise. We only buy cars that we are happy to sell, if we don't like it or if it's provenance is questionable then we don't buy it.
All of our used cars (except Part Exchanges To Clear) come with the following included in the price:
Service if due, 93 point pre-delivery inspection, 12 months MOT, cambelt replacement if due, HPI check, valet & either the balance of the manufacturer's warranty if applicable or up to 6 months/6,000 miles (whichever comes first) used car warranty.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT CHARGE ANY ADMINISTRATION FEES (UNLIKE SOME OTHER DEALERS). The only additional cost would be for road tax if you would like us to tax your car for you. The payment options when purchasing a car are as follows: We can arrange finance quickly, easily & at competitive rates via MotoNovo Finance Ltd (subject to status), or you can pay by bank transfer, debit card or cash (up to the equivalent of 10,000 Euros as per money laundering laws). Please contact us if you would like to pay by credit card as depending on the balance the charges made to us by credit card companies can make this prohibitive but we will look at this on a case by case basis.
PLEASE PHONE US ON 01234855757 TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO COME & VIEW A VEHICLE SO THAT WE CAN ENSURE THAT THERE IS SOMEONE AVAILABLE TO LOOK AFTER YOU.
