Why Buy from Us At CJS Car Sales
CJS Car Sales Ltd is a family run business - established in 2002 by Craig James Salisbury. This year (2023) has marked our 21st year in business, with almost 6,000 cars sold to date.
Craig - a fully qualified, highly trained & time served Motor Technician. He gained an apprenticeship (aged 16) with the main franchised dealer within his local area at that time. This is where he remained for the next 10 years & where he was well regarded & later recognised as 'one of their best'.
Craig's mechanical knowledge, his scrupulous attention to detail & his self belief that he was able to provide a service much more personable & knowledgeable than most main dealers, became the driving force in his decision to start up alone. And so from there - the hard work began. With immense courage, sacrifice, dedication & unwavering support from his family - CJS Car Sales Ltd was born.
Here - there are no sales pitches. No gimmicks. From your very first point of contact at CJS you are dealing with someone who understands your car from the inside - out, and this is why we stand alone from most other used car dealers. Giving you complete peace of mind when buying a car.
All our vehicles are prepared to an extremely high standard - a standard which will at the very least rival, if not surpass that of ANY main dealer. It is this attention to detail & our renowned aftercare service that has gained us a fantastic reputation within our local community. We are proud to say that the 'CJS' name has now become synonymous with exceptional used car quality within our local area.
As standard all of our vehicles are sold with two keys, are Serviced & Timing Belts changed as per manufacturers recommendations, a full 12 months MOT Test & include a Comprehensive Warranty Package.
Please note that CJS is here for you long after you drive your new car away. Being an incredibly close family run team - we are able to keep overheads down to a minimum, and as a result are able to maintain your car at a cost unrivalled by a Technician of Craig's calibre. A service which in this current climate (amid the cost of living crisis) is extremely rare.
We don't just want your business once - we really do want it for a lifetime.
What our clients say ...
"We travelled from Scotland to buy the car and it was immaculately prepared, fully serviced with the timing belt changed. Craig went above and beyond to ensure the car was right for us. Highly recommended. A***" ~ I Kirkby.
"Craig and his family team are fantastic. They go above and beyond to be helpful and to assist. I bought a E250 Mercedes Cabriolet for my wife. Despite being the farthest end of England, it was well worth the drive. A knowledgeable and pressure-less man that made buying a 'used car' a pleasure. Recommended and would buy again" ~ J Cornet
"Love my Jaguar F-Type from CJS; Craig is very straightforward to deal with and prepared the car beautifully" ~ J Oldfield.
"Great place to buy a car! The easiest car-buying experience I have had in decades! They are honest, trustworthy and make the whole process an absolute pleasure. And the car was a peach too! Although not in the least local to where I live, it was well worth the journey". ~ Rob S.
"The best experience i've ever had. Friendly, honest and couldn't do enough for me - especially with what's going on with covid. I can't speak highly enough of them, just a great all round service. I would definitely recommend to anyone". ~ Patrick G.
"Fantastic experience , leagues ahead of chain dealers. looked after through buying and selling. Craig went out of his way. Top quality aftercare as well and no corners cut. Can't recommend enough". ~ A Burgess.
"Best of the best car dealership there is! I have now purchased my Ford Galaxy car from this family run dealership in December after I had an absolutely terrible experience with a main Ford Dealership resulting in me having to reject that vehicle. Due to that experience I have left it 6 months to leave an honest review of my experience. I honestly could not have ended up with a better vehicle or purchased from a better dealer with outstanding customer service from start to finish and any queries or concerns were dealt with in a professional, friendly and timely manner. Nothing is too much bother for them. I had this vehicle delivered to me in Kent and that is a long way to travel but I have to say the price was worth the added cost which was actually really good value. Top quality car from a top quality dealers and I have every intention of using them again in the future (but not for me as my car I hope will last many years). If you want total peace of mind when buying a car then this is the dealership for you. Highly recommended". ~ Janine B.
