TESTIMONIALS

Tom Wall (PAU) New Mini Cooper

I have used Gary Automobiles to source and deliver a new car in France. Since I don’t speak French it was a delight to deal with Gary himself. Everything from start to finish was handled with care and attention. Most of all I appreciated the good clear communication from Gary. E mails always received a reply and nothing was too much trouble. I would have no hesitation in using Gary Automobiles again in the future or recommending the company to others.

“Gary Automobiles made the whole process as painless as possible. We had dreaded trying to trade in our UK registered RHD Citroen in France, and hated the thought of having to go all the way back to the UK to sell privately, and then get ourselves back home to France by public transport. Gary sourced exactly the LHD Citroen we wanted, and then arranged for it to be registered in my name, got the Carte Gris sent to me in advance of the purchase, and then got the number plates made up for both the car and an extra one for my trailer. Gary also arranged to have a tow bar fitted, ready for when I picked the car up. Oh yes, and he also arranged car insurance to be effective from the day I picked the car up. A very efficient operation, and at an excellent price. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gary Automobiles to anyone (especially those English speakers with limited French) for the purchase of a car in France, or those who simply do not have the time or inclination to negotiate their way around the French bureaucracy involved. ” Monsieur Edwards, Colin

“Gary was fantastic in finding just the right car for us. The whole process was swift and easy. He arranged our insurance, an overnight stay and even collected us from the railway station. If you need a bit of help with finding and registering the right car for you in France then I can highly recommend him.”

Andrew Bennet (AIX-EN-PROVENCE) Peugeot 207CC

Gary, I’m happy for you to add this to your testimonials page if you wish: The whole process of buying a car from Gary was painless and efficient, especially printing the new carte grise for us in his office. All questions were answered rapidly and courteously and his obvious desire to provide an excellent service was evident throughout. I would recommend him in the highest possible terms.

We sourced the renault Grand Scenic from Gary in France as the same car was very expensive in Spain. Gary was very proffesional and helped with all the paperwork regarding re-registering it in Alicante!

Pete Thomas (HAUT RHIN) BMW 530

Having been relocated with work to the French/Swiss border the issue of a car was a last minute panic, having been embroiled with the house/school/removals we had paid very little attention to buying a car in France where we would be settling. A search on the internet suddenly unravelled a rather complex process, being armed with holiday French skills only, the thought of being at the mercy of an unscrupulus dealer was rather alarming. Further searches on the internet via ex-pat forums resulted in a number of recommendations for Gary Automobiles, a quick search on the site and we found the ideal car. The car had all the relevant paperwork and Gary even arranged insurance for us. I flew out to conclude the deal, Gary picked me up from the airport and even arranged overnight accommodation locally. We still have the car (a BMW) which has proved to be extremely reliable. I would highly recommend talking to Gary if you are considering a car purchase in France, secondhand cars are very expensive over here, usually with starship mileage, I paid a very competitive price for the car and would not hesitate in another purchase from the same source – even though I’m fully fluent in the language now!

James Greig (Fife, UK) Renault Kangoo

I am renovating a property in the Alps and divide my time between France and Scotland. I decided that it would be more convenient and economical if I kept a vehicle in France. Gary sourced a new car for me in France and handled all the transfers etc. He also delivers my car to the airport and even garages it when I return to the UK. His personal and english-speaking service has been really helpful and taken the hassle out of buying and keeping a car in France.

Tina Comez (Perpignan) Audi R8 V10 Spyder

Un petit mot pour te remercier de ton chaleureux accueil. Tu es un véritable Père Noel….Nous sommes comme des enfants qui viennent de  découvrir leur cadeaux devant un sapin de Noel !!! L’Audi R8 Spyder que tu nous a vendu est vraiment formidable. Merci encore d’avoir contribué à tant de bonheur.

A très bientôt , bien cordialement ,

Rick Lomas (Briançon, Hautes Alpes) I was so happy that I bought two!

In March 2019 I bought a gorgeous Renault Mégane Tce 100 from Gary. I had an old beaten up Mitsubishi that he gave me a fair price for. Quite frankly my old car wasn’t really worth anything, so I was just glad to get something for it. The transaction was smooth and without any problems whatsoever. I asked Gary to look out for a 4×4 Fiat Panda or similar to replace a 23-year-old Audi A6 that I also had. I realised that if I scrapped the Audi properly, I could be eligible for the ‘Prime à la conversion’ grant from the French Government. By May 2019 Gary had found a very funky Fiat Panda Cross 4×4 0.9TwinAir for me. Gary helped me scrap my Audi and have all the correct paperwork to claim the ‘Prime à la conversion’. I was delighted to receive an email last week saying that my claim was successful and I am going to be paid 4000€.
I’d highly recommend buying a car from Gary Automobiles. Both of my purchases were enjoyable and efficient from start to finish.
