Welcome to Kingsley Garage
CORONAVIRUS (Covid-19) (Updated 12/04/2021)
Please wear a face covering if you are able to when you come to visit us & maintain a safe distance from our staff & other customers. Thank you.
Our showroom is now open to the public as usual but we would prefer it if you could phone us on 01234855757 to make an appointment to come & view our vehicles as this will help us to control the number of people in our showroom at any one time. We are maintaining social distancing & we are disinfecting the main touch points on our vehicles prior to viewing & prior to collection. If you live fairly local to us & you don't wish to travel to the garage then you can buy or sell your car online or over the phone & we will deliver it to or collect it from your home. Please phone us on 01234855757 or email us at [email protected] & we will guide you through the process.
Our workshop & MOT bay are open as usual for servicing, repairs, tyres & MOTs etc. We are maintaining social distancing & are disinfecting all of the main touch points on each vehicle e.g. door handles, steering wheel, gear lever, hand brake, keys etc, prior to you collecting your vehicle. We can collect & return your vehicle to you if you live fairly local to us & you do not wish to visit the garage.
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 subsidiary 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.
