Testimonials

"How refreshing to find an old school honest and decent used car dealer that does what he says when he says. The whole process from arriving on site, looking at the vehicles, identifying what I was after and finding me the perfect car for my budget was excellent. Car was fully prepared and ready for me to collect just as promised. I would recommend this company to anyone wanting good old fashioned personal service with a smile. Thank you "

"Having just bought a ten year old car from Hallmark Cars I would like to comment on the service I received. Sales person was Steve (son of proprietor) a car salesman yes! But a guy who one warmed to very quickly. The car a Fiat in lovely condition, he was in no way pushy and answered all my questions I think truthfully and arranged to carry out some work before the purchase.After the purchase a couple of minor items needed attention, these where seen to, quickly and efficiently.I am delighted with my purchase and would be happy to recommend Hallmark Cars to my friends.

"I have never bought a used car before and was very worried given all the scare stories you hear. I went to several dealers before Hallmark, but it was only Hallmark that i felt confident i was getting the truth about each vehicle and used cars in general. No pressure at all, extremely accomodating and helpful, didn't mind that i took my time deciding.I bought a Citroen Xsara two days ago and have already clocked up 150 miles in it, working perfectly, love it!

Buying a car of the Internet, you must be crazy…

I live in Spain, used cars here are very expensive, generally with high mileage and not well maintained, so the answer was, buy from the UK. But how? Clearly traveling back to England and trailing around garages was not an appealing prospect, so the Internet came to my aid, what a great way to track down the car of your dreams at a price you want to pay with thousands of cars available. So once I had decided on the manufacturer, make & model and found my dream car the rest was easy, or was it. Fear sets in, we have all read the horror stories of buying from the Internet, fraud, shoddy goods or worse still no goods at all. Still I went ahead and made a few tentative phone calls to Internet sellers, and then I phoned Hall Mark Cars of Bedford and spoke to Steve, he had the car I wanted (13,000 pounds worth), but as soon as I spoke with Steve I felt comfortable, he came across as honest and down to earth, so I paid him a deposit by credit card, 5 weeks later I paid the balance by bank transfer and then my wife and I flew back to Luton to collect our purchase. You can only imagine the nerves I felt when we arrived by train in Bedford to be met by Steve in the car park, had I made a huge mistake? Was I to be bitterly disappointed! Not one bit, the car was everything and more, it was beautiful and clean inside and out, Steve had even bought a bouquet of flowers for my wife!! We proceeded back to Steve’s office where we were greeted by his parents and after a lovely cup of tea and chat, we completed the paperwork and left in our new car to our hotel. Was I pleased? Absolutely, would I buy from Hallmark Cars again? No hesitation!! In fact if Steve did not have the car I wanted in stock I would still ask him to try and source it for me. So would you be crazy not to buy your next car from the Internet? Well I had a great experience and would highly recommend it, but buyer beware, not all stories end like mine, if you want to remove a lot of risk and uncertainty, buy from Hall Mark Cars….

"We are local and wanted to buy locally. Hallmark was an obvious choice, given their reputation in Bedford.The fact they have been in business for over 20 years gave us confidence to trust them to provide us with a good car.We have been delighted with our Zafira and would recommend anyone to buy from Hallmark".Check out what people have been saying about us! 

Having now had the Alfa 147 for a couple of weeks , I am very pleased with the car. I bought the older model on condition and on your advice and it certainly drives much tighter than I expected from a 10 year old car . The interior is unmarked. I much appreciated your honest and straightforward dealing and the realistic and helpul advice on Alfas in general. Please do quote me on this and many thanks again.

Excellent service from everyone at Hallmark. They sat me down explained everything honestly and thoroughly. I purchased a Peugeot auto 307 with great mileage. The car was presented in fantastic condition. The personal service was outstanding. I would recommend them over any of the 'large supermarket' car sales yards anytime. If your looking for a car, Hallmark cars is a must see. Top notch!

"Just a few words of thanks for your valued time in supplying the1989 low mileage one owner BMW 320 in a first class condition.My son Adam loves the car, we can't get him out of it.I have found some original BMW BBS alloys in great condition which are now on the car and looking good .Thank your Dad from us both,firstly for all his time, that he spent with us,while you were at Goodwood that weekend. I think he enjoyed the collection as much as we did..Steve you did do great job of preparing the BM for delivery, your Dad gave Adam a few pointers on the car, plus told him some old motoring stories from his past years while supplying us all with a nice cup of tea.It has been a pleasure to do business with a well run family business like Hallmark Cars, we came along way but we were not disappointed in any way.I do hope business goes well for you and your family in the years to come and wish you well."

Very best regards
