Phillips Auto sources the majority of its stock in house, avoiding expensive fees associated with local auction houses which inevitably get passed onto the customer. Each and every car we take into stock goes through a thorough inspection by our appraisal team, including Full HPI report, road test, service clarification and finally through our workshop for a mechanical inspection. For this reason we have extremely high customer retention, any new customers we sell to will become customers for life and that’s the way it has been at Phillips Auto for over 30 years. We are a family business with family values.
