Car-Pod - Quality Cars, Affordable Prices.
Hello and welcome to Car-Pod Ltd. based in Southampton, Hampshire.
Firstly, I would like to thank you for visiting my Digital Dealership! My overriding aim at Car-Pod is to offer potential customers quality cars at exceptional value-for-money prices - and this is how I endeavour to achieve this;
I offer a modest range of very carefully selected cars.
- Each week I consider literally hundreds of stock options, however, I will only select the very best, perhaps choosing no more than a handful at most. Why? Because I can't find any more!
- All cars are HPI checked.
- All cars are accurately and diligently described.
- The vast bulk of my stock will come with a full and up-to-date Service History.
- Full and Comprehensive Warranties are available from 3 months (FOC with all cars) to 3 years.
Each car is exceptionally priced.
- I don't have expensive showroom and forecourt overhead costs.
- I don't employ any staff (which is why viewing is by appointment only).
- My margins are modest. I realise that one very satisfied customer could lead to another.
- It's just me, happy to provide a friendly, reliable and competent service.
- As previously mentioned, I don't employ any commission driven sales people.
Please take a look at my current stock range and don't hesitate to call, email or text us if we can be of further assistance.
We can help you find the best finance deal
We have relationships with high street lenders and specialist motoring finance houses too, that is why we have helped hundreds of customers secure the best finance deal for their budget.
Very personable and helpfulMr Max Coulton, Eastleigh
Highly recommended. Paul has a friendly and honest business approach. Didn't feel pressured at any point and he was happy to answer any and all questions I had. He laid out the full service history from the start and went through everything from the warranty to the tax and change of ownership. He even covered the cost of a new timing belt and water pump after his mechanic advised on replacing them. You can tell he cares about his customers and the service he's providing them.
Excellent and highly recommendedMrs Maryanne Edney
Brought BMW 325I M Sport - Paul was easy to deal with and no pressure to buy. Answered all my questions and very helpful with the purchase of the car. Paul was honest with everything I asked, even had the service done earlier for me as I wanted to take the car home the same day. I had a very pleasant overall experience would definitely recommend to anyone. I am so happy with the BMW. Thank you.
Friendly unpressured sale.Mr. Rob Corrie, Blandford
Friendly unpressured sales approach. Kept well informed and updated pre viewing with quick responses to questions. During sale ensured that all information was shared in a systematic and through way.
Fantastic Dealership.Mr Adam Moore, Reading
Had a great experience from start to finish with Car-Pod, they were helpful and informative at all stages and I am very happy with the quality of service and the car that I came away with. Would highly recommend!
Pleasure to deal with!Mr Ed Gibbs, Wimborne
Highly recommend, a pleasure to deal with, fantastic in every way, thank you.
Very good service and very pleased with the carMr Julian Rix, Bognor Regis
Very professional and genuine service. Would recommend Car-Pod to everyone thatâ€™s looking to buy a used vehicle as Iâ€™m very happy with our purchase. Everything was as it should be in information about the car and more. Very pleased all round.
Quick and very professionalMr Shaun Walker, Marchwood
I was very confused when I followed the directions of the Auto Trader app. After seeing how professional the pictures and add looked I personally thought I was going to a garage. Upon arrival I was shocked it was someone's home. Yet do not let this fool you. Car-Pod was extremely well organised and the owner has done a really good job to excel his business. Very professional when dealing with part exchanging my car very reasonable offer. Loved the car that I bought had it for 4 days now and not had any problems so far. Was by far one of the cheapest but yet best condition of the vehicle I was looking for viewed 4 vehicles before this and they were all dreadfully over priced and had seen a lott better days.
1st Car Purchase for our SonMrs. Debbie Dowling, Aldershot
As Parents you're already anxious that your 17 year old is going to be driving, so choosing that 1st car was an important step. From first telephone contact up to the first meeting and viewing of the car, I felt reassured that we were being dealt with in an honest and trustworthy manner. My husband was unable to attend the first appointment so my Son and I travelled from Aldershot to view the car on a Sunday. Paul greeted us with a professional manner, no hardsales, talked us through the vehicle, pointing out any signs of wear/damage and even acquired a part that required repair to the parcel shelf and fitted it before the sale completed. Paul was very good at talking through the features of the car and any questions were answered, all related paperwork was available for viewing. The car was also offered with a 3 month warranty & breakdown cover. We would not hesitate to recommend using Car-Pod for your next or future purchases. Thanks again.
Highly recommendedMr. Ramon Sange, Southampton
Very nice and professional treatment. I would come back again to buy a car.
Great serviceMiss Katie Chappell, Romsey
Excellent friendly service - lovely car in great condition. Would definitely recommend.
Great experienceMr. Drew Simpson, Totton
Excellent fast friendly service, kept informed of what was happening at all times. Good quality cars at great prices with the promise of the after sales service as well.
5 stars!!!Miss Hannah Woodbourne, Southampton
Brilliant service, friendly and very helpful! Would recommend, made buying a car a lot less stressful.
Great dealer!!Mrs Tracey Allen, Tidworth
Car Pod was a pleasure to deal with. There was no hard sales. When he said the car was in great condition, it really was!! Itâ€™s like brand new!! Great price for a great car. Iâ€™m in love with it! I would definitely recommend car pod to anyone looking for a new car.
Excellent experienceMr Glen Husada, Twickenham
I have dealt with several car dealers and I can fully recommend Car Pod. The owner is reliable and very friendly. He will always try to find the right car for his customer. Car-Pod is surely different than big branch dealer. You will experience here buying a car from your friend or family who you can trust.
Car-Pod made parting with cash enjoyable!Mr James Cotty, Ashurst
Paul at Car-Pod was fantastic. Having spent an hour at a main dealer the day before, and getting nowhere, Paul at Car-Pod was a revelation. Straight forward common sense with a definate eye on making sure his customers are well served. The car was exactly as described, in very good condition and presented nicely. The test drive was unrushed and at no point did Paul try the hard sell. Paul was able to trade my old car with ease, and at a fair price, and within an hour and a half of arriving I left in a very smart Golf GTD! Great to have found someone to make what could be a stressful situation easy and dare I say enjoyable. Would definately recommend and will be back! James
Well presented car, pleasure to deal with.Mr Gavin Davies, Marlborough
Very easy to deal with, the car was exactly as described and very well presented. All the necessary paperwork available and very efficient at dealing with the transaction. Many thanks.
Good online buying experience.Mr Ronan Magee, County Down, Northern Ireland
Excellent service! I was based in Northern Ireland and Car-Pod couldnâ€™t be more helpful. Provided loads of extra photos and answered questions via telephone and text. Willing to negotiate on price and accommodate collection by transport company.
A+ service, very happy!Mr Tom Perkins, Bournemouth
Prompt and efficient service, very amenable, with fair prices on both purchase and part-ex vehicles. Highly recommended!
It's been a pleasure..!Miss Clare Blay, Sholing
Buying a car through Car-Pod was a dream. Paul is so polite and has excellent customer service skills. The sale from start to finish was smooth and Paul has provided excellent after care. I will definitely recommend Car-Pod to friends and family & use them again myself. Thanks Paul!
Smooth & incident free.Mr Eric Obiri, Surrey
Car was viewed & reviewed against similar cars on Autotrader for about a week. A friend entered into negotiations on my behalf and managed to get a discount off the asking price. Following a few phone call exchanges, we went down to Southampton from Surrey and met Car-Pod. Everything went fairly smooth, a decent stint on the test drive to better assess the car and there was no pressure selling going on.
Felt like part of the familyMr Denzel Adjai, London
I could give the deal no fault. Once I arrived I was given a warm welcome. Exactly what was shown in the advert was shown in person. Would go back again and again to do business.
A pleasure to do business with.Dr. Deborah Fulcher Cornah, Portswood
What a thoroughly pleasant experience buying a car from Paul at Car-Pod. From the first contact, he was prompt, professional and personable. We had just experienced a high-pressure, condescending and inarticulate high-pressure sales patter from a local car showroom dealer and Paul couldnâ€™t have been more different - open, honest and friendly. No big sales pitch, no pressure, just helpful and polite and reliable. Great communication throughout, sorted out all the paperwork with no fuss and even came to pick us up of the day of collection. Canâ€™t think of a single negative thing to say - will be recommending Paul to anyone I know who is looking to buy a car and wishing him and his family all the best.
Great serviceMrs Sharon Tregar, Eastleigh
Great service, friendly and approachable very helpful would use him again.
Who knew buying cars could be so simple!Mr John Hookings, Fareham
I found buying at Car-Pod to be a hassle free and simple process. Paul was very polite, honest and totally up front. I would definitely use Car-Pod in the future and would highly recommend other people to use this dealer.
Professional and highly commendableMiss Jessica Cox, Bishopstoke
Car-pod are a professional and highly commendable car company. Advisories on the MOT of the car I purchased were fixed within 2 days, at no extra cost. The owner is friendly, clear and easy to deal with. Thanks for all your help. I Would definitely recommend this company for anyone looking to buy a car!
BMW 1 seriesMr Dominic McLellan, Sarisbury Green
Brought this car for my son, Paul was really helpful and professional and there was room for a little haggling. Happy with the transaction would definitely recommend, I wish him all the best for the future.
Excellent experienceMr Ollie Lennard, Salisbury
Would really like to thank Paul for the excellent service I received. He provides a modern and honest approach to car sales and it was a pleasure doing business with him. 100% recommend.
Love my new car!Miss Kerry Lowe, Totton
I have to say what a great experience with Car-Pod. Paul is a lovely guy, so helpful & a pleasure to deal with. No pushy sales techniques & we were able to take the car out for a nice long drive, so that we had the chance to really get a feel for it. I'm chuffed to bits with my new car & the great all round service & communication. Would definitely be happy to shop with Car-Pod again in the future. Many Thanks
Excellent!Mr. Lindsay Adamson, Newick
Extremely nice to deal with. All the details were accurate and honest. He was also a really nice guy! Would buy from him again.
Very satisfied customerMr Edwin Smith, Bucklers Hard
Car-Pod is probably the most genuine company I have dealt with in over 50 years of buying cars. Need I say more.
Excellent service. Highly recommendedMrs Nicky Long, Chandlers Ford
The owner was incredibly helpful both before and after the sale and easily contactable. He was very knowledgeable about the car and offered a great part exchange deal for mine. I would highly recommend Car-Pod.
Buy your car here!Miss Harriet Cook, Southsea
Absolutely fantastic experience with Car-Pod. The service was excellent. A relaxed, no-pressure environment with a genuine and knowledgeable salesman. The car was exactly what it was described as, couldn't ask for more. Would definitely recommend.
Paul was excellent and very friendly. Made us feel at ease and was very professional. Really helped us understand everything we needed to know about the car.Mr Tommie Coll, Poole
Very honest company!Mr Andy Carter, Nottingham
Well worth the long Journey from Nottingham. Very professional, the car was exactly as described. Certainly a very trustworthy company and a pleasure to deal with. They also reply to messages very quickly, which is great if you can't be on the phone etc i.e. at work. Many Thanks.
Professional, trustworthy and friendly!Mrs Holly Piller, West End
Car-pod provided a professional and efficient service. I would completely recommend!
Highly RecommendedMr Daniel Bussooa, Bracknell
Brought my new VW Golf off Car-Pod, great buying experience, very chilled and relaxing atmosphere meeting Paul. No pressure and hard selling like a few dealers I've met, definitely recommended, Cheers Paul.
Genuine Dealer, Amazing Service, Brilliant Car!Miss Charlotte Williams, Waterlooville
From the initial dealings with Car-Pod, to collecting the vehicle a few days later, the experience was seamless. Paul, who owns the business, could not have been any more accommodating or helpful. Not only did he give me a very fair price for my part-ex, the Ford C-Max I purchased was very reasonably priced and in absolutely fantastic condition with extensive paperwork to match. Car-Pod is different to any other dealer I've used and nicer than any "salesman" I've met. He is very upfront, friendly, and an absolute dream to do business with. He kept me updated prior to my purchase with text messages and even a screenshot of the new MOT certificate. When I arrived at his address to collect the vehicle, I was even made a cuppa which was a really personal touch. Outstanding service and an excellent product. Thank you so much!
Pleasure to do business withMr Archie Sargeant, Poole
Pleasure to do business with, extremely nice guy, car is just as described, smooth and easy transaction, very pleased.
Brilliant car-buying experienceMr. Mike Sinden, Herne-Bay
Very nice guy. Really easy transaction for a an amazing quality car. Don't be put off by the lack of showroom, it was a far more personal service and I would happily deal with him again. Really professional and knowledgeable. Thank you!
Car-pod, a pleasant surprise.Mr Paul Hixon, Hedge End
Very pleasant experience. Paul @ Car-pod went out of his way to be accommodating and helpful, without being pushy! The car was left to sell itself, which it did with ease, due to its keen price, and superb condition. Wholly recommended, thanks Paul.
Excellent Service!Mr Ben Williams, Farnham
Excellent experience with Paul, very friendly and professional and we are really pleased with the car (Skoda Octavia Estate) we purchased, which is immaculate, and the price we paid. Would recommend Car-Pod. Thanks Paul!
Fantastic, non sleazy service.Mr Sean Toomer, Hiltingbury
Purchased a mini from Car-Pod after my partners car broke down. Called in the afternoon, and met an hour later and drove away shortly after that. As a man who knows nothing about cars, I found Car-pod totally put me at ease. They were helpful, knowledgeable and not like any car salesman I've ever met. I'd totally recommend Car-Pod!
Fantastic!Mr Roy Burton, Great Yarmouth
Fantastic, nothing to much trouble. Communication was very good from Paul and everything was done as promised. Well chuffed with the car and first class service from Car-Pod. Keep up the great work and the great cars Paul!!
Excellent professional experienceMr Ian Lloyd, Bournemouth
From first enquiries to the final hand over, the whole experience of dealing with Car-Pod was excellent. Highly recommended and a quality product.
Faultless, professional and friendly!Mrs Lee Rabbits, West Moors
After having trouble very recently with car dealers who had quite frankly made me incredibly wary of them, Paul was an absolute breath of fresh air! Looking at the reviews, I thought 'too good to be true' but couldn't be further from the truth! Paul was honest, professional and thorough, was understanding and considerate and unbelievably helpful when I had a minor issue with the parking sensor! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Car-Pod to family and friends. Paul said he's trying to be 'that' change in second hand car dealers and he is most definitely on the right track. So, well done and thank you so very much for restoring my faith!
Look no further!Miss Julie Johnson, Sarisbury Green
After a couple of false starts my Polo appeared on Autotrader and sounded just what I was looking for. Having had a couple of cars looked over and dismissed by a friend who owns his own garage I was happy to hand the whole exercise over to him and trust his expertise. Paul at Car-Pod was great from start to finish, putting me at ease about having the car checked over and even taking it himself to the garage for my friend to check over. The car is in tip top condition for its age and immaculately clean and tidy and the garage gave it the thumbs up after taking it out and putting it on the ramps. When I collected the car Paul spent time going through the service log and pointing out the work done prior to purchase. Being someone with absolutely no knowledge of cars and having nearly fallen foul to a less creditable dealer I wouldn't hesitate to recommend car-pod. I found Paul to be honest, genuine and trustworthy and he totally saved the day for me!!
Looking at cars is normally tiresome but...Mr Jeff Day, Colden Common
I had a budget to work to, there was never a problem working with my offer. I did not feel harassed or hurried to make a decision. Someone I could deal with again in the future.
Excellent serviceMrs Tina Thorn, Swindon
Excellent service from start to finish would highly recommend Paul, very professional service! Many Thanks Paul for my car I love it!!
First time buyerMr Damian Spalding, Winchester
My experience with Car-Pod was fantastic. Paul was very friendly, welcoming and helpful. This was my first time buying a car and i was very impressed with how professional but casual the experience was making me feel very at ease. There was no pressure at any point and everything was done around a time frame that suited myself. From emails to phone calls Paul is very quick to respond and I will be recommending Car-Pod to all that I know. Thank you Paul, Regards Damian
#1 Sales ExperienceMr Tom Coldrick, Portsmouth
It was very refreshing to meet a human and not a sales man that was only thinking of profit. A very honest and genuine guy who made us feel welcome in his home whilst we discussed the details of the vehicle we ended up purchasing. We originally test drove this vehicle but proceeded to go to our next booked test drive at a garage and despite the second vehicle not being adequate for our needs, the difference between sales people we met was clearly evident which encouraged us to return to the first car. Car Pod Ltd even gave us sound advice on the second car we were seeing! We would definitely recommend Car Pod Ltd to our friends and family.
