3rd Generation Selling Quality Used Cars, 4x4's & MPV's

At Tim Hayward Car Sales, we understand that buying a used car isn't always the exciting experience that it should be. With over half a million cars for sale in the UK at any one time, it's not surprising that there are many cars offered for sale with hidden pasts, and problems that show up, often when it is too late. It's because of this, we take many preventative measures to assure that our customers never get a chance to experience those "less than desirable" cars lurking out there.

With sensible stock levels, we never find ourselves desperately looking for stock, unlike many large retail sites and Car supermarkets, often stocking more than a 100 cars at a time, with massive overheads to cover, buying cars to "fill spaces". We individually acquire our stock one at a time by checking its past history, service history, and originality, meaning we know our cars on a first name basis.

It's because of this process, we can be proud to offer some of the finest used cars, 4x4s & MPVs on the market, many with full main dealer service history, and often have only one previous owner.

Fantastic Welsh hospitality.

Fantastic experience. We arrived on a rainy day, vehicle was exactly as presented online. Quick trade in and job done within an hour. Coming from London, I am used to approaching purchasing a vehicle with suspicion. Not here.
Andrew M
Incredible cars, incredible service

Such an approachable, down to earth unique garage. Their approach is incredibly welcoming and understanding. After purchasing a second car from the team at Tim Hayward The service hadn’t changed at all, the team were excellent at helping in all aspects and understood exactly what I was looking for and didn’t try to push me into something I didn’t want! Would highly recommend such a great team to anybody!
Daniel M
Almost Unbelievable this level of service is offered today, a very rare but excellent find.
Super impressed with Tim Hayward car sales, the service from the first point of contact has been 5 stars. We purchased an XF Jaguar at a very competitive price, they took my XF back in part exchange at a very fair value and delivered the new car in perfect condition to Plymouth. The aftersales service has blown me away, I really didn't believe this service level still existed.
Well Done Guys and thanks.
Alan Davis

I bought a BMW 318Ci for my wife. It was a 2003 model with one owner, 52,000 on the clock and absolutely beautiful!! Tim and the boys were wonderful. Tim put a brand new MOT on the vehicle and transferred a personal plate at no extra cost. They also kept it for us until we were able to collect it a week later, they even sent someone to pick us up to get the car. Lovely people to deal with.
Adrian B

A Satisfied Customer

Tim Hayward Car Sales had a good selection of interesting cars. The sales team were knowledgeable and well informed. The cars were presented well with all recent work explained . The car I bought also came very well-documented. The sales team were consistently helpful, pleasant and supportive before and during the sales process. There were a couple of relatively minor (and unforseeable) issues with the car in the first week or so, but these were quickly resolved to my satisfaction with sympathy and fairness. I would happily recommend Tim Hayward Car Sales to others.
Jon S

James H
I bought a BMW 630i with my husband in this store and just the last day of the warranty I had a problem in the engine, at that time my husband could not drive because of health problems and these guys took care of everything, they gave me a replaced car the time to repair it and they gave me back my car in perfect conditions, really this is a very good place to buy a car, I would recommend it to anyone, when I have to change my car I will use them again. Thank you very much.

Buying a n old car by an old man.

The deal was done with old humour, clear details and a quick realistic part exchange was effected. Any little niggles with the purchase, a Qashqai, were dealt with quickly with no quibble. In all an enjoyable and satisfactory deal.

Ken H
Absolutely Fabulous!

I would highly recommend this car dealer. I could bore you to death all day long about why however please trust me when I tell you that having purchased a car from them very recently and experienced their after sales service I cannot praise them enough. From seeing the ad for the car I wanted, which was honest and accurate through the sales process with Tristan then through to delivery and after sales they were just great. Better than any car dealer I have ever used, which is a lot as I am not all that young!!. Brilliant service all the way. USE THEM. Paul. K.
