Hi Barry,

Van is perfect, exactly as you described, long time since I bought a used van without bothering to check it over beforehand, pleasure doing business with you

All the best

Technology is one thing but customer trust is still king !


Thanks for this.  The whole process worked very well, with a very straightforward and efficient pick-up and drop-off process at the airport.

Thanks to your team for their help.

We don’t get up to Scotland very often but would have no hesitation in using your services again.

…and we had quite good weather.

Regards, Victor

Two words we like : ‘ straightforward’ & ‘efficient’ …..

Quick, simple & to the point 🙂

We were caught on the hop with staff cover for van sales so we had no option but to bring David Clarkson in from retirement for a day or two !! ….it was a laugh 🙂


Thanks for getting in touch – the van is a cracker, and is getting a roof rack fitted at the moment before getting the Network Sign treatment in the morning.

I hope all went well, and please thank your old man for all his help – he’s obviously still got it!


The old man still has the magic ! …..

Dear Barry,

Just to say I’ve used the van for 2000k now, up and down the country, empty to bursting. Superb, not a problem, a real pleasure to drive and use. Thanks again to you and your guys for the work.

Will our vans last as long vinyl records ?? ……

Hi Barry,

Just got back! Lovely van sir, can’t complain 🙂

On another note, I’d just like to say how amazing the service and your
honesty has been.  For me personally, to pay a £500 deposit on something
I’ve never seen would have previously to myself seemed crazy, not to mention
totally against the way I work.  However, from your YouTube video (which I
have to point out is a great selling pitch) and your phone conversations,
your trust is easily earnt and because of that I had no doubts the van would
be what you said it was.

The lady at reception was an angel too as were the other ladies and the
English guy you have working for you!  You have a great business up there
mate and I’d be happy to reccomend and certainly make you my first port of
call for our next van.  Put it this way, this is the first testimonial I’ve
ever written in my life!

Thank you so much and your patience with the initial finance problems as



Well……we can really ask for better than this ! Delighted …

Hi Barry,

I’d just like to thank you for helping me get the van through Graeme a couple of weeks ago for our house move.

We originally had a bit of flexibility but because of some typical complications with the other couple’s solicitor we ended up with a midweek move date that was impossible because of work. The bank holiday Monday was ideal and again I really appreciate you making the van available. We’re looking forward to getting back to Lanarkshire and as long as you guys aren’t training too hard it would be great to catch up for a pint at some point!



A friend in need is a friend indeed ……

Hi Barry

David has asked me to email you to say thank you very much for the service received.  He is very pleased with the van and bringing it back for him was much appreciated.

Kind regards

Caroline for David

Good service isn’t hard to offer …..

“Definitely agree mate. The Vivaro is a great van to drive. Built for space and comfort. We bought one from Barry last year and its a dream to drive”
