Recently bought my car from here, after being recommended by a friend. Absolutely amazing staff.

Ryan D.
Whole experience from top to bottom was transparent. The salesman was very helpful and knowledgeable about the cars that fit within my price range (although a little cheeky when he suggested the blue colour of the car matched my eyes, I know a sales tactic when I see one!! :)) Arranging finance was quick and the contract was clear. What else is there to say.

Sarah Y.
Looking for a new car is a time consuming and stressful experience. It's hard to know what to look for, which questions to ask and who you can trust. I can honestly say that Approved Cars are an excellent garage. Anthony was our salesperson and he could not have been more helpful if he'd tried. He listened to what we wanted and answered all our questions. He fully understood our needs and found us a brilliant car. I am so happy I will definitely come back and tell all my friends. If I could give 10 stars I would, a truly stress free experience.
Mark J.

Weronika D.
Amazing company. It was my first time getting a car. No one in my family drives so never had support from them when it came to cars. My seller was Lewis and he done an amazing job. Always going above and beyond. As I always had silly questions regarding the car or insurance he had a lot to answer but was always happy to text me at any time of the day!
They had great cars to suit everyone's needs from young and new drivers like me to fully experienced drivers.
Very happy with the service and I highly recommend it!
Tamara D.
Unfortunately my car recently broke down causing myself and my husband to look into buying a new car on finance, all staff were hands on and happy to accomdate our needs. Lewis was our personal dealer and was able to work around our budget and would take his time to ensure we knew exactly what we want and he was able to make our vision come to light. The company was referred to us from a family friend, explaining how efficient and reliable this company is; and this is absolutely true as we were able to drive off with a new car within a 1 day.
Maureen M.
Very good customer service!
Mohamed K-J.
An Excellent company!
Alix T.
I would recommend Approved cars Croydon every time !if I could rate with more starts I would. I first got a car from them 2 years ago and it was perfect, I never had any issues with it and it was affordable. As of recent I've needed a bigger car due to changed circumstances so I've gone back to them and once again they haven't failed to provide excellent customer service and driven off in a new car within a few hours of arriving, they made it that quick and stress free. Unlike other companies I have bought or had finance from the after care and support has been amazing. I'll definitely be back in a few year to upgrade once again.
Daniel S.

I went in with a little amount of money in my pocket and expectations to match - but i couldn't have been more wrong! The customer service, value for money & level of quality went above and beyond. I left with a super car and a smile on my face. 5*
Rishi B.
I can not recommend them enough! Approved Cars offered the best price and the best service after having looked around at several dealerships for a BMW one series, I have clocked up around 5000 miles in the last 6 months of using the car and I have had absolutely no problems! Both Lewis and Anthony were incredibly helpful and made the paperwork a seamless process, they even checked up on how the car was treating me a few months after purchase. I've since told numerous people to keep Approved in mind when looking for a new set of wheels.
Fabio C.
Bought a car here the other week and got fantastic customer service, very polite and helpful.

went to approved cars in croydon to buy a bmw 320d and was met by anthony and lewis and must say i have never ever met salesmen who are so polite friendly and as helpful as them they told me all about the car i wished to purchase they gave me the key so i could look over the car without any pressure whatsoever and everything they described to me about the car was totally accurate i can not praise these guys high enough as there professionalism truly shone and i recommend approved cars croydon to anyone on the experience i received from them both and when i next pass through croydon i will not hesitate in popping in to say hello to them both.
Fiona J.

The best salesperson I have come across! Lewis is an amazing peoples person, he is the man! One happy customer. (Bought Vauxhall Antara 2013 plate)
Ollie O.
Originally came to look at a BMW, but it was sold when I got there. Instead I bought a TT, Lewis was so helpful! He made the whole process very easy for me and I was in the car the same day I first had a look. Will be recommending to all friends and family.
Ilyaas H.
Approved Cars have probably provided the best service I have ever received from a dealership - having always purchased used cars.
I bought a Lexus CT200H from them - it had a few minor scratches but Anthony, the friendly professional salesperson who sold me the car, gave me a good deal and even got one of his servicemen to make some of the scratches less visible.
They also took my banged up Renault Clio as part exchange. However, the best thing about this dealership is that they go the extra mile for their customer. When I got home after buying the Lexus - the passengers side door handle panel was coming loose. I spoke to Anthony about it and I now have an appointment with one of their serviceman to get it fixed. Furthermore I'd forgotten something in my old clio and one of the staff ran to the storage base where it was to retrieve the item and got back to me straightaway.
I would highly recommend this dealership - their cars are competitively priced, the staff are professional, friendly and really go that extra mile.
I may post an update in 6 months about how my Lexus is fairing - but that's if I'm not too busy having fun with it.
Aaron C.
Mr Brith C.
Great Communication, been very helpful in helping us to make a decision and on how to get the best out of the car. Many thanks!
Mel P.
What a great Experience! Lewis the salesperson who dealt with me couldn't do enough for me! He took his time to explain all the options I had for buying a car and was very honest about what deal would be best for me in my situation (I went a bit crazy with credit cards when I was 18 and got myself a bad credit rating). I never once felt like I had to decide there and then and I was even offered a refreshment. Highly recommend these guys to anyone looking to buy a car of any shape or size. Thanks again Lewis. I hope you enjoyed the chocolates.
Jide M.
The experience I have had with Approved cars has been excellent. They were able to source an affordable finance for my car. The car I originally saw on their web site had been sold by the time I got there but they were able to source an even better car for me the same day. The whole process was very smooth and was handled very professionally. My application went in on a Monday by Thursday I was driving away in my car. I have to mention Lewis in particular who handled my application and also Chris who was able to source my car. I think they have a very effective team at Approved Cars and would most definitely recommend anyone in the market for a car to first give them a call. Thank you all very much.
Adam G.
Thank you so much Anthony and Paul such big help from the get go, if you need a car go to these guys they know what they are doing they got me my dream car even with bad credit, so helpful and I will be recommending them to everyone I know, so once again thanks and see you when I want another one

Tiffany C.

Chris G.
I am very picky when it comes to choosing cars but these guys managed to source me the exact make, model and color of car I was after.
The staff were friendly and patient the whole time I was there as they had to move about 20 cars to allow me to test drive a few of the cars I liked the look of! The cars that I drove were all clean and nice to drive but they didn't have the exact colour I was after so I decided to leave them.
The salesman then informed me that he should be able to source the car to the exact description I was after within a week, so I left him my number and waited for a call. The following day he called me up with a description of a few vehicles similar to what I was after. He even sent me pictures to make sure I was happy with my choice. They managed to source the car for me and it was in the showroom two days later.
I drove away the car the same week (a BMW 1 series) and have been very happy with it ever since.
I recently brought a friend down to get a car from them (who didn't give them such a hard time with test drives) and they gave me £50 as a thankyou!
Faith O.
