I found Southlands Motor Company 2 years ago and bought my first camper van off them and was very pleased with the welcome, level of help, service and the quality of vehicles on offer. With all of the above in mind we decided we wanted to update our van and went back to see Paul and Darren and yet again we got all the professional support as expected and we purchased a newer camper van which is outstanding. I would definitely recommend Southlands Motor Company due to their friendly, professional manner in which they conduct business. Many thanks again boys and keep up the good work. Pete and Claire

Firstly I followed Lee at his previous work place on Facebook-not in a stalkerish way �
I enjoy his interaction on his social media via his videos but also the great range of cars on offer. I also like to support local businesses by liking their page.
I entered a competition offering a Campervan free for a weekend. The first draw came, I didn’t win, the man didn’t claim his prize and to my delight 48hrs later they did the draw again! I won! �
From start to finish Lee has gone over and above what he needed to, ensuring communication was exceptional. We had an amazing few days away in the campervan - making memories with our boys.
All the guys here at southland motor company are genuinely nice people, I would certainly recommend them in a heart beat! Thank you all for your outstanding customer service � xx
Emma Anna Boyle

Quick & easy.
Probably the quickest and easiest car I have ever bought. I viewed the vehicle on a Friday evening and it was Taxed & MOT'd by 14.00 on the Saturday. I got an honest price for my trade-in and the deal was done. Lovely car in superb condition and beautifully presented. Thank You for such an easy transaction to Trevor & Darren. I wouldn't hesitate to visit you again. Thanks again Alan from Durham

I bought an Audi A5 coupe from Darren last month. Darren's laid back & flexible approach was very refreshing. We were made to feel relaxed & not pressured in any way, nothing was a problem. The car is high quality, well valeted and great value.

I'd like to send a testimonial. Best car salesman I have had the pleasure in dealing with. Genuinely gave me a great deal. Next time I'm in the market for for a car this dealership will be my first port of call.

Good job Darren
