Service

No issues with any aspect of service

Was looked after very well by Ryan.

See comments above in Q1

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

Because i was very satisfied!

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

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

Service

No issues at all

Service

Good information as to status of car and work done

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

As above

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

I've been and a lot and met with the same standard as a first so to me that's very well good

Service

Ryan was our service representative and was very attentive and helpful. It was nice to have someone like him to work with. Felt the service provided was very good.

Service

Speedy booking for the day after I phoned, and Jordan kept me well informed with progress of servicing and when car could be collected. Jordan explained cost of service in advance.

Service

REALLY PLEASED

Service

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

Service

good service, quick, hassle free

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!

Service

Small glitches that were rectified without hesitation

Service

See above. The car was taken in by the service team without delay, I was kept advised of progress and it was given back to me at about the time promised.

Service

No issues and they did as arranged with no hassle what so ever

Service

Actually prompt diary date, stuck to agreed time, and friendly staff

Service

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

Service

4 star for eventually fixing an 8 month fault with my car. However on return of my vehicle it had developed a further (unrelated) fault that after 1 month I'm still waiting on a phone call to confirm what is happening with it. So 3 star overall.

Service

All carried out without any drama

Service

No problems on my visit

Service

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

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

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

The cost of the service is always a contentious matter.

Service

Same as reasons above

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

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

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

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

Curteous and helpful.

Service

As above I really cannot say it enough

Service

Very good customer service. Pleasure to deal with!

Service

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

Service

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

Service

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

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

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

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

Service

There were simply no shortcomings.

Service

The issue with my car was fixed quickly

Service

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

Service

Overall very good. We had booked car in for summer check whilst having pre arranged appt with member of sales team at VIP event. The car had summer check and wash but there wasn't enough time to valet it unfortunately in the 2 1/2hrs we were there.

Service

The attention to detail and the way you are treated is great

Service

Friendly and helpful staff

Service

The deputy service manager Nadia was very helpful. The only thing I dont like is the continual loud music in the waiting area. Clients do not go there to listen to your choice of music. They usually want to read, work or listen to their own music.

Service

Everything went according to planned

Service

Service centre were extremely attentive, and senior tech came out with me in the car to listen to suspension noises. Software updates were carried out at no cost. Would use service centre again.

Service

I was kept informed regularly and price clearly broken down without unnecessary extras

Service

I was kept informed throughout the process of resolving the problems with my car.

Service

1 small service so far no problems

Service

The best customer service I ever experience. Especially Ryan Kecheran who push for that "extra mile". He provided detail explanation to all my technical questions and keep me regularly updated on the progress of the work whilst I was waiting.

Service

After the service my car was cleaned .. the valet resulted in my car having marks all over the window trim (as if some unsuitable chemical has been used). This has happened on two other ocassions when my car has had a valet at BMW. Very annoying.

Service

Quick, efficient service. Very professional and polite staff

Service

Did everything they said they would and saved me an accident by finding bulge in tyre

Service

When I picked up the car initially a warning light was showing but when I raised this Jordan was good enough to have it sorted right away.

Service

Peter Vardy are always attentive; keep you in the loop as to what is happening (during a service visit) and serve good coffee whilst you wait.

Service

All worked as planned, clear communications, explanations etc.

Service

Small point - Would have given full marks had I been offered tea/coffee while I was waiting for my car. I was sat right in front of the tea/coffee facility and although someone did eventually ask, I had already been there for 1 hr 25 mins.

Service

The booking-in process was straight forward. The courtesy shuttle into the centre of Edinburgh was excellent. The car was ready when promised and had been valeted. The price including the requested MOT was less than I had anticipated.

Service

As above

Service

I bought my previous and current car from Peter Vardy. Customer service was excellent and staff were both polite and knowledgable throughout. I was particularly impressed by the reception staff who couldn't do enough to make me welcome.

Service

Such a welcoming showroom with happy staff

Service

Excellent service throughout, kept me up to date continuously

Service

good service

Service

Confidence that your car will be serviced properly

Service

I had a problem which worried my fiancé and myself considerably, But the excellent service team of Brian and Grace could simply not have done more to allay our fears and finally corrected the matter to our entire satisfaction!!!

Service

see above.

Service

I was never in the dark, always knew progress with the car and return date.

Service

All my requirements were attended in a professional manner.

Service

Felt informed the whole way through.

Service

Very happy with the service experienced.

Service

the car got valeted but was not clean (also gets done once a month), they never do inside windows, or clean the seats

Service

While the issue may not be completely resolved (water leak and difficult to detect) the staff were first class in their handling of the situation with prompt attention.

Service

Collected car and drove on to the A1, after a few minutes the Tyre Low Pressure warning came on. I returned to Vardy Seafield and again Ryan attended to me immediately. I waited one hour and twenty minutes whilst car was in Tyre Deptno fault of Ryan

Service

Service took 90 mins longer than scheduled with no additional works required to justify. Was not informed things were running late until I specifically asked why the delay. Resulted in my being late for another appointment

Service

problem was assessed correct advice given & car duly repaired with no fuss

Service

See above.

Service

Nothing to complain about. Just a bit expensive.

Service

Staff were friendly and accommodating.

Service

Carried out in acceptable time

Service

All good no stress

Service

Despite the issue with BMW Peter Vardy service & staff excellent.

Service

Due to the distance I travel to get the car serviced I chose to wait while it was being carried out. Made to feel welcome and staff attentive. Slightly longer wait than i was told initially but kept informed of progress

Service

Car was in for a recall and was returned about the time I had stated.

Service

Polite and asked if there was any other issues regarding the car the down side after the service the engineer forgot to update my cars on board computer so I had to make another 20 mile round trip to get this sorted which took 5minutes

Service

Quick turnaround. Good communication. Inexpensive

Service

Car was late being ready, but my service adviser was good enough to give me a room to take the conference call I was otherwise going to miss due to the delay.

Service

Staff are good at there job and get things done ?

Service

Ryan was a great maintenance liaison to work with.

Service

Our car is our delight and it is going along just great. Thanks to your mechanical team for a good job done.

Service

I have had no reply on a query I had reference the deterioration of paintwork on the bonnet. As the car is only one year old I would have thought this would have been a priority to rectify.

Service

A last minute unplanned visit due to damaged tyre- resolved and priced competitively.

Service

It was excellent. The staff were very polite and friendly. They were also very helpful. The service was expeditious and well done.

Service

Staff explained everything thoroughly and kept me informed on the progress of my vehicle.

Service

everything explained and car collected and delivered as promised

Service

My wife & I were met at reception by a friendly lady who arranged refreshments while we waited to see our contact . Within a few minutes I was introduced to a gentleman who arranged everything including handing the keys for the courtesy car .

Service

Thoroughly professional

Service

When I walked in the showroom I thought I was going into a discotheque. Personally I did not think the music and the volume where appropriate for a car showroom. I was attended by the receptionist who asked me to take a seat to await the service .

Service

Thorough

Service

Staff helpfulness and attention to detail.

Service

Ryan was able to get my car done first thing, meaning I waited rather than take the courtesy car that was arranged.

Service

See above

Service

every thing was taken care off.

As above

Service

Service staff were extremely helpful and managed to do the job of repairing my alloy wheel whilst I waited.

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

Came to the midnight handover and was very enjoyable

Sales

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

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

As above excellent sales team.

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

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

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.
