Peter Vardy are spot on , excellent pressure free sales team and the service team are excellent , the cars quality let's it down and the fact BMW can't fix my car is terrible

Service

The time from break down collection to being ready was six days. I was told it would be available Thursday, I explained I couldn’t call Thursday but would collect Friday. I called Friday to be told it wasn’t ready. I had to call back Saturday.

Service

Jordan was very professional and kept me informed about the progress of my car throughout. Highly recommended

Service

The service was first class. I particularly enjoyed the video that was sent to me.

Service

great service

Service

As item 1 above It should not have to be like this I give you 'Fairly Satisfied' as I wish to put this experience behind me and move forward

Service

When I booked my car in it was not explained that if I wanted my car early that day I should have let them know when handing over my car keys. This resulted in not getting my car back until 4pm when I had booked it in at 8am that morning.

Service

Looked after me well. Organised a courtesy car short notice for me too. Jordan was extremely helpful.

Service

Friendly efficient staff, and work was carried out with appropriate advice given where needed.

Service

The problem I had with the car seems to have been resolved on the first visit to the service dept.

Service

When I came for my service I was told that there was a re-call issue to be dealt with too which would take longer than I was expecting. I chose to re-book the car and return on a different day. Why wasn't I told about this sooner, saving me 2 trips?

Service

Regular updates on progress allowed me to plan my return trip to pick up the car.

Service

Routine service. Car ready on time. Car valeted. However question about rusting hubs not answered until reminded. Not offered any solutions.

Service

People I dealt with, very smart location, good service

Service

Everything carried out as expected

Service

Always easy to book in ... No issues

Service

Kept informed on progress during the day. Clear explanations. No surprises.

Service

I asked the dealership to price some chipped paintwork, to date this has not been received, weeks later.the actual Service / repair I was very satisfied with.

Service

Was kept waiting for over 15 minutes on a busy work morning to pick-up the car after a completely routine service. Handover could have been handled by the reception desk team.

Service

Everything was done at a fair price and on time.

The terms of my service plan was not clear when I purchased the vehicle, I then find instead of £0 the service would cost me circa £250. A clearer explanation of the terms of service packs should be incorporated, the result in my case was frustration

We were told the service would take an hour so we waited in situ but ended up waiting two hours instead. On collecting the car we found that although it was cleaned externally there was no evidence that it was vacuumed on the inside.

Service

Having originally sold a car to the dealership at Seafield, Edinburgh, we have continued to use them to both buy, service, MOT and repair vehicles and have always found the staff in all departments to be friendly, knowledgable and helpful.

Service

No problems with the service we received

Service

Excellent service from staff always willing to assist and oblige. The wait for the work took somewhat longer than the 2 hours but, refreshments and a free valet/ wash for the time inconvenience certainly helped. Liked the post inspection video :)

Service

Unhappy with 2 things: Camera cable (usually hidden) was left lying loose over the passenger mat. No attempt to hide the cable. Also front of car valeted but back seats not touched. A 2 hr visit took 3 hrs and so had no time to complain re cable

Service

Had to return that afternoon as plastic wrapping around newly fitted exhaust had no been removed

Service

immediate discount offered on servicing and on work to be carried out to pass MOT, made me feel original prices were not genuine. A bulb which needed replacing (parking light) wasn't replaced. Delighted interest free option to pay costs over 6 months

Service

As above. Personal service

Service

See comments above in Q1

Service

Great customer service as always

Service

I am satisfied with the service experience at Peter Vardy Ltd. The reason for my rating of 3 star is that I had to do couple of follow ups with Peter Vardy as the condition of the car at the hand over time was not good and I had to raise this matter.

Service

gave good advice on options for additional work and value

Service

All staff without exception very friendly and helpful. No unnecessary waiting and everything went like clockwork.

Service

I find them all really good to deal with

Service

Clear communication, personal service and quality.

Service

As above, your staff are excellent and take care of you but charging over 3 times what an independent bmw specialist quotes means that your are prohibitively expensive.

Service

No issues at all

Service

Because i was very satisfied!

Service

It was all done smoothly and with as little inconvenience as possible.

Service

Good information as to status of car and work done

Service

service experience is fine although when they say the car is ready I like to be able to walk right in and have the invoice ready and be on my way not to take a seat for 10-15mins and the offer of a coffee

Service

As above

Service

The fantastic service I received from Ayaz in the sales team to Sid who come over and made me feel welcome to the handover team Sarah, Karen and Josh who bought me flowers as a thank you gift.

Service

REALLY PLEASED

Service

They keep me updated on the progress of what is being done with my car.

Service

Did the job required as one would expect.

Service

The service staff who dealt with me were very good. I can't help but mention, however, that the reception staff offered someone a coffee who arrived after me and, despite talking to me, didn't offer me the same. Not very good customer service.

Service

My Service Advisor Grace was extremely helpful with everything and kept me updated regularly.

Service

I was told that the vehicle check could take up to 3 hours and the work was completed within that timescale. I was also informed of progress made throughout the visit. The coffee and croissant was also good!

Largely to do with quality of face to face contact at service desk.Video report was also good feature.

Service

No problems on my visit

Polite staff and very easy service experience. Phoned me at good intervals to keep me appraised of progress and arrived on time. Nothing seemed to be an issue.

Service

car returned very clean and i feel well serviced but touch up i requested not done

Service

I am of the opinion that during my car's health check in late March, the air conditioning function was not properly checked.

Service

I am always kept informed as to what's happening and how long it will take.As I live an hour away I wait for the car.

Service

Ryan took care of me very well. Answered my questions and concerns. Gave me clear advice. Thank you.

Service

The cost of the service is always a contentious matter.

Service

Staff are very professional but friendly and down to earth at the same time. We felt very relaxed and comfortable with each of the people we spent time with.

Service

Overall experience from every contact at Peter Vardy was really great. I would like to mention Ryan specifically and give a five star rating to the service contact Ryan. RegardsRDEV

Service

Same as reasons above

Service

My car wasnt washed or hoovered otherwise i would have given a higher score

Service

This was for a recall item which I found out about myself i.e. Peter Vardy never contacted me to advise a recall was required.

Service

Originally offered a mini as a courtesy car, but received a new m140i which was great. PV were also flexible in allowing me the car over an extra few days as I had travel commitments, which was great!

Service

As above-mentioned . Had to replace 4 tyres for what was a tracking issue and this should have been corrected before I bought the vehicle. BMW refused to accept liability. Frankly for two tyres to be affected by irregular and severe wear is unlikely.

Service

Curteous and helpful.

Service

As above I really cannot say it enough

Service

Very good customer service. Pleasure to deal with!

Service

Car was perfect when i got it back. Fully valeted which was a lovely bonus

Service

Everyone is so nice and they just can't be anymore helpful

They quickly fixed the oil seal and gave me back my car gleaming which was lovely to see.

Service

The service was one hundred percent everything is done to the highest standard and Jordan picked the car up and returned it can't thank him enough very pleasant young man thanks again for goin out your way yous aim to please

Service

There were simply no shortcomings.

Service

Always first class service - always kept update with how the service was going

Service

Completely satisfied with the service of the car but it would have been an advantage to be informed the service department closes before the advertised showroom time.

Service

The whole experience from booking the service to collecting my vehicle was first class.

Service

The issue with my car was fixed quickly

Service

Polite/friendly staff. Sales team worked hard to get the price within my budget.Made to feel special when taking delivery of new car.

Sales

Found the motability salesman excellent, but whilst he was on leave the other staff I spoke too didn't seem to know what they were doing and gave me duff information. All was resolved satisfactorily once the motability salesman returned from leave.

All our questions and administration issues where dealt with without any problems

Sales

Sales

Same as above. And to add the centre was immaculate and overall a very pleasant experience.

Sales

Only reason I didn't give 5 was it took a while to get approval through before I could leave the showroom so had to wait a while. Other than that it was great

Sales

My local BMW Centre (Peter Vardy) personnel are always extremely helpful, patient with a clear appreciation of your needs and the car / specification that will match those needs effectively.

Sales

Peter Vardy BMW have always given me the advise I need once they have listened to my needs as opposed to just telling me what I want. Ross Green in particular is a salesman I have always went back to because he has always listened to what I want.

Sales

Service was friendly and knowledgeable

Sales

We live 180 miles from the dealer so the order was placed by telephone.Ross Young at Peter Vardy explained everything in detail about the car. In the event we felt confident that this was the right move and had no hesitation in placing the order

Sales

From entry to the centre we were greeted and everyone was very pleasant. The salesman had even phoned to say that if we were early he could see us on arrival. He did have a client prior but the phone call was good customer service in our opinion.

Sales

Tony, who was helping me buy the car was brilliant, he explained everything to well, so friendly and made everything so easy for me. I thought this was going to be a stressful process but it was wasn't at all, he made it enjoyable

Sales

As above, Tomasz honestly answered any queries we had and gave us plenty of time to reflect on our options.

Sales

Excellent customer service and faultless attention to customers exact specification requirements. All front desk, sales & handover staff could not of been more courteous and helpful, I'm very happy.

Sales

Delivery was super quick 4 weeks from factory order very impressive. One observation would be for future customers to make it more clear on final settlement figure of the car and if any additional payments are likely to be made to finance company.

Sales

Again was impressed at how smoothly everything went

Sales

Staff were very good

Sales

Excellent service throughout the whole process of choosing a new car. The salesman was very knowledgable about the car and was able to help with the extras I wanted.Hand over of the car was brilliant and full explanation given.

Sales

Salesman and Technical Genius very helpful, with regular offers of tea/coffee. Very personable.

Sales

Loved the attention to detail and making sure we had enough tea and coffee

Simple - from our first meeting Tomasz was a great point of contact. He met us first in the car park and welcomed us to Peter Vardy. He was knowledgable and made us feel very much at home in the showroom. He was good to deal and good with detail

Sales

Couldn't ask for more A+

Sales

Ease of doing business

Sales

All ran really smoothly with no delays.

Sales

As above.Harry Wallace took the stress away from us and made the experience very enjoyable.

Sales

Sales

Great communication and help. Found me the right car for my needs.

Sales

The team were great - and they operated as a team. Every one of them worked hard at giving an excellent service and at making the purchase feel special. I felt like I was receiving an individual service rather than being one of many customers

Sales

As above excellent sales team.

Sales

Car delivered on time, great service from Lewis in the showroom and all my queries answered quickly and efficiently. Even the times when I turned up with my two kids (Aged 4 & 7) there was enough around to keep them occupied which helps.

Sales

When we arrived the salesman who we had an appointment got busy with other customers completely understand so we got Thomaz instead who was very kind spoken and polite and helped us a lot.

Sales

Eventually reached a suitably agreeable purchase price with Tom Pawlicki and his manager for new car on a follow up visit a week after VIP event.

Sales

Came to the midnight handover and was very enjoyable

Sales

Ross Green managed to get my car within my (upper!) budget and made me feel confident in my choice. He was great at keeping in touch and on the day of collection came to pick me up at the station to bring me to the showroom.

Sales

They are second to none on the personal approach and quality of service throughout

Sales

This was my very first brand new car. After working full time for 40 years this was 'my treat to me'. And that is exactly how the whole experience felt - a real treat. On the day both Derek and Josh made me feel very special. See answer to last Q.
