The HLG Team: We buy well cared for, low mileage cars and estates with service history.
Thank you for visiting our website. Please scroll down for our stock.... keep scrolling, as it appears down at the bottom of this page. A little weird, but there it is... just keep scrolling and your patience will be rewarded! Better still, call us for a chat on 01663 763355 and let's see if we can 'match' you and your ideal car. You'll notice quite a few sold cars in the list, as despite a lot of people being away on holiday, business at HLG never stops, so if you have missed something whilst you have been away, do let us know and we can alert you as fresh stock arrives.
We are a small business with three full time and four part time team members, yet countless thousands of happy customers have passed through here and it is a delight to be a part of their motoring journeys. In particular, we are tickled pink that so many motorists have returned time and again, in the meantime 'spreading the word' to their friends, colleagues and families. We really can't think of a better way to do business than organically - can you?
Please refer to this page for updates- as new stock arrives, it appears on this page, then you can click on the photos.....if we've had time to take them. We don't call it 'The Madhouse' for nothing!

Watch this space........... lots of good stuff going on at HLG:
We need your stamps and bric a brac. The HLG team is collecting used postage stamps in aid of Blythe House Hospice . Please save yours and drop them in or post them to us. We collected in excess of ONE MILLION stamps for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People - now it is the Hospice's turn and we hope to raise the next million in the not too distant future, so thank you and please keep 'em coming. N.B. Please leave a little paper around each edge of the stamps, (Ideally about 1cm). If posting, please make sure you have enough stamps on the package, as we have had several examples of non - delivery, which is a bit ironic when you think about it. Thanks! We are also a drop off point for your unwanted bric a brac, books, clothes, toys, anything you have finished with, which Beryl will sell on her regular market stall and table top sales in aid of Revive a Life.
A local dealer with a solid reputation - We see our garage, which was established on this site on 15th of June 1927, as perpetuating "the corner shop" approach to the motor business. If our incidence of repeat custom is anything to go by, it works. People come from all over, time and again and tell their friends, family and colleagues.One local family has had NINETEEN car transactions with us during our twenty six years here, whilst another family took delivery of their sixteenth vehicle earlier this year. A lady round the corner has recently made her TWELFTH purchase, while fours, fives and sixes are regular occurences. Proof positive that we care - in fact we get the strong feeling that many people are going back to grass roots, spending their money with the little guys like us where they know they will be treated with respect and given that extra time and consideration. Our wages only happen as a direct result of continued business. We bought our 391st Honda Jazz a few days ago - more Jazz models wanted, please.
A couple of interesting facts: the average turnaround time for used car retailing in the UK is 45.2 days; that is the period from taking a vehicle into stock, preparing it for sale, advertising it and the new owner taking delivery. The HLG average is a mere 19.8 days - less than half the norm. This has to do with picking the right stock, relationships with workshop personel and suppliers and a reputation for being a safe bet for customers to spend their money wisely. Also interesting is that we do not, unlike the vast majority of dealers, pay any money to companies who direct traffic to our website - no search engines, no SEO payments, no pay per click or any of the enhancements which seem to underpin so many dealerships nowadays. This website is run organically and we're proud of that. Existing customers and referalls from them account for the majority of our sales and other dealers are flabbergasted, considering that their monthly spend can be anywhere between £1,200 and £3,000 on one household name search engine alone!! We'd rather spend that money on making sure our cars are properley prepared and conforming to the HLG ethos - matching tyres (same manufacturer) on all four corners, a minimum of 4mm tread across the full width (well in excess of the MoT requirement) and every car supplied with two keys. Colleagues in the trade tell us we're bonkers doing these (and other things) which set us apart, but we have proved time and again that happy customers are loyal and tell others, so we'll continue to do things our way. Twenty six years in the present ownership and our customer base continues to grow. (Our recently retired accountant calls it 'The HLG Car Club,' which is really rather nice!).
Have a browse round our cars and remember that apart from buying and selling vehicles, you can sample our other services. Body repairs, paintwork, paintless dent removal, puncture repairs, tyres, servicing, parking sensor fiment, etc. Whatever your motoring needs, talk to us and we'll do our best to help you. Without pressure. With a smile!
