I just wanted to write a quick email to explain the satisfaction I have received in dealing with Tom Godfrey at Mercedes-Benz of Dorchester.

The customer care of Tom Godfrey and the rest of the team at Mercedes-Benz Dorchester has been 2nd to none. I will be recommending as many of my friends and family to do the same as me and deal with them in the future.

I have made what could've been a very stressful situation very very easy and now I cannot wait to continue driving around in my beautiful new car.

I feel that sometimes people only write letters to complain and talk about bad things however on this occasion it's delightful to be able to write to you guys and tell you how amazing your staff are.

I wanted to email  as I feel that people are often quick to complain when things go wrong but when things go right there is often no follow up. I just want to outline my brief experience of the Mercedes of Dorchester branch and my dealings with members of staff.

I was looking to purchase a car and had shortlisted a few that I liked and in the off chance I popped into the branch in Dorchester. I spotted a Mercedes B Class in the showroom and liked the look of it but thought that it would probably be out of my budget and so was about to leave when a sales representative, Ziggy Horie, called me just before I was about to leave and gave me a talk through of the car. I really liked his manner and his knowledge of the car was impressive.
He asked if I wanted a test drive and whilst I was very impressed with the car, as I was only on a short visit thought I’d maybe wait. Ziggy was very flexible and said I could call at the end of the day if I changed my mind. I went home and thought about it and decided to have drive. I rang back and booked for the Saturday. The test drive was lovely and the car sold itself but the way Ziggy sold the car and the general service was outstanding. I didn’t feel pressured at all and I appreciated his honesty and the way he handled me as a customer. Based on the test drive and the service I received I decided to go ahead and purchased the car and I couldn’t be happier.

As strange as it seems I don’t feel like I was sold the car in the way you imagine a car dealer might sell it to you but I feel more like I was sold the car by a friend. I’ve been so impressed by the service that my wife is thinking about changing her car and I’ve convinced her (when she buys) to test drive a car from the Dorchester branch and I recommend her to buy from there as I know she will be looked after. I would also like to praise Hannah Stickland who also gave excellent service and support throughout the purchase.

I will definitely recommend any family and friends to purchase not only from Sandown Mercedes-Benz but specifically from Mercedes-Benz of Dorchester!

Mr Read, Mercedes-Benz of Dorchester

The whole experience from start to finish has been above and beyond anything I have ever experienced.  I have to say I am one happy customer!

The choice on this car was easy as I fell in love with it the moment I saw it.

I cannot recommend you guys enough for a truly unforgettable experience.

Dear Mr McAllister,

On July 2nd 2016 we took delivery of our most beautiful smart convertible which looked simply fantastic when we collected it from your showroom. It was sitting there covered with a cloth which was removed by your outstanding sales executive Timothy Cooper…what a wonderful presentation!

Since we took delivery we have not had the slightest problem with the vehicle – it has been into your service department for an annual service recently and this went very well. On the odd occasion when I have wanted an answer to a query I have always seen Timothy and it is this which prompted me to write to you. Over the years I have bought many cars from various manufacturers but I have never had such attention from any sales executive previously. He is the most charming member of your entire staff and nothing is ever too much trouble – he makes you feel so welcome and comfortable immediately when you enter the showroom. He is kind, particularly attentive and nothing is too much trouble – he is very patient, understands exactly what you are talking about and takes immediate attention to answer your questions. Occasionally we meet him in Guildford and he is just as delightful then as he is when at work in your showroom!

I would like you to thank Tim on behalf of my wife Jean (who thinks he’s lovely) and myself – both of us really appreciate his attention and it is always a pleasure to enter ‘smart of Guildford.’ You are indeed lucky to have such a man working within your excellent company – as a Sales Director myself for many, many years I understand exactly what any sales executive needs and he has it in abundance.

Yours sincerely,

Mr R Bembridge.

Mr and Mrs Bembridge, smart of Guildford

The service I received was extremely professional.

The addition of online video footage explaining about the wear and tear of tyres and breaks was extremely helpful.

My wife and I want to publicly give you a huge thank you for the incredible effort you put in sourcing and brokering a great deal for us. You always kept me up to date with progress and  never once did I feel uncomfortable with the deal or the car. You always managed to make me feel important, the only customer and found time to spend listening to our particular requirements.

The car is truly magnificent, was beautifully presented and handed over in such a wonderful way, the car was a special purchase for us and you helped make it just that bit better.

My wife finally plucked up courage and drove it yesterday and had only one word to describe it -  “lovely

Mr and Mrs Darlow, Mercedes-Benz of Basingstoke

Good morning,

We are emailing you following our transaction of a C-Class Mercedes-Benz we collected from your dealership yesterday.  We have nothing but praise for Ziggy, fromthe moment we walked through the door a couple of weeks ago, he made us feel atease with the whole buying process. 

Ziggy'sknowledge of the model range and the purchase options is second to none.  He explained everything in a friendly,methodical, professional and calm manner, and we understood exactly what wewere getting.  The handover yesterday wasalso brilliant.  

Ziggy took time to goover the car and its features with enthusiasm and we learnt so much how ourMercedes works !  We would also like tosay the whole team come across very approachable and friendly, unlike other Mercedesdealerships that we have experienced in the past.

The Mercedes-Benz of Dorchester branch has a real gem in Ziggy and wecertainly hope he will still be there when we trade in for a newer model in afew years time.

I recently bought a Mercedes Benz GLA from Mercedes-Benz Of Guildford and throughout the process Adeline Lee was my point of contact.  

Adeline has delivered a superb service from my initial interest through to and after point of sale.  She has been professional, courteous and very well informed.  She has always returned my (many) questions promptly and there has been nothing she has not been able to answer;  she is accommodating and obviously very knowledgeable, certainly with regard to the GLA. 

In short I am completely satisfied with the support and service I have received from Adeline and hope that she’s available when I return in 3 years to buy my next Benz!

Mr Abbott, Mercedes-Benz of Guildford

Just to say how impressed I am with Sandown, the other week Mercedes-Benz emailed me to let me know about a competition to win a Mercedes Formula 1 T-shirt. Later on that day, I was notified that I had won!

Secondly, Last week Mercedes-Benz sent me a loyalty card that entitled me to various different items. I have already spotted what I want!

Please pass on my thanks.
