Citroen C5 Aircross

After having placed an order for a different vehicle with a major UK dealer I was badly let down regarding delivery after I had been told the delivery period. However, I had already noticed the Avatar website who offered me a few similar alternatives and in fact came up with an excellent offer on the top the range Citroen C5 Aircross Automatic. I was always kept informed of anything during the process.
Steve Roberts is the type of gentleman anyone would like to do business with very knowledgeable ,and always wants to make you feel comfortable. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Steve to any prospective purchasers. Steve gave me the confidence and peace of mind to buy my first leased vehicle !

"Steve at Avatar will make you feel that you are his only customer. Always at the end of the phone, he will definitely go that 'extra mile' to get you what you need, at the best price. I took delivery of a Honda on Skye, and Steve made the whole experience really easy, even down to delivering to my door. That is not something other companies could achieve up here. I would certainly recommend them.

Avatar reply: What a lovely testimonial - many thanks indeed Kathryn, hugely appreciated! Enjoy your new Jazz up on Skye! :)

Mercedes A250 AMG Line Auto

I just wanted to take a minute to share my review from my recent excellent experience with Avatar Vehicles. As a newcomer to leasing I found that I was guided through the system with patience and professionalism. Communication from Steve was always clear and precise, and I never felt rushed into any decisions. The overall process was painless and so easy due to the help and advice that Steve delivered. I am now the proud owner of a wonderful new Merc which came in at a great price. Thank you, Avatar Vehicles.

Audi SQ5

I (and my family) have just taken delivery of the 3rd car using Steve at Avatar and I can't rate them highly enough. The two previous cars procured (wife's and son's) went through smoothly with no issues whatsoever. My new one was a bit more difficult and Steve had to do a lot of hard work to meet the specification that I was looking for. He managed to look at several different options both financially and make and model to allow me to make an educated decision on which one suited my budget best. My daughter will be looking for a car at the end of the year and I will definitely be making Avatar my first stop. Many thanks again Steve for all your efforts in securing a great car.

I approached Steve to help me with the personal lease of my own first car. After speaking to a few companies, I immediately began working with Avatar due to Steve's attitude - so helpful and genuinely showed care in his work.

Citroen C1

I've never had a lease car before but I knew that if I was going to get one I couldn't do better than go to Avatar Vehicles. Liz Ersoy researched the type of cars that I was looking for and she updated me on every new deal that was advertised. Eventually, we settled on a scarlet (colour is important to me!) Citroen C1, 5 door. Liz and Steve couldn't have been more helpful and they greatly added to the ease with which the transaction to lease was completed. Many thanks for your expert knowledge and attention to detail. I have no hesitation in recommending you to family, friends and colleagues - you are the best!.

Nissan NV200 Van

When my business was expanding and needed a van on finance Steve was the man I turned to. He found us a very good vehicle and the finance was the best deal out of everyone we got quotations from. The communication with him during the whole process was top notch and I was never left feeling out of the loop. Delivery went without a hitch and I've been happily using the vehicle ever since. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Avatar to anyone requiring a vehicle and we will certainly be in touch with them in future as we need more.

I've bought cars through people like yourself allover the world, but I can truly say that your Organisation is head and shoulders above the rest.

Thanks Again!

VW Scirocco

When it comes to cars I'm as demanding and fussy as you will get, I also reckon I can find the very best prices. I already had a deal set up but then I gave Avatar a call and I was glad that I did! Not only did they beat my "unbeatable price" (and I didn't tell them what the price to beat was) but they catered to my every demand (and there were lots)and they kept me informed every step of the way. I'll save myself a lot of hassle next time and just go straight to Avatar. A very happy Scirocco :)

Range Rover Sport

I have just taken delivery of my new Range Rover Super charged Sport. I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am not only with my new car – but in particular the “Seamless” service. We are, as you know based in Somerset – and there are obviously other, more local, companies we could have used – however having had several vehicles through Avatar in 2006 and 2007, i wanted to give you the opportunity to provide this one. From my initial e-mail in July, the buying process has been simple and efficient – you definitely “over deliver” on your promises. In 2009 we all too often have to put up with lacklustre and casual levels of service, but Avatar certainly break the mould. And indeed whilst price is not always the most important factor in any purchase, you were also the least expensive too! I would wholeheartedly recommend you and your company in the future – and indeed will use you myself again the future.

"as a frequent buyer of vehicles for both personal use and for the business fleet I was unsure of the benefits in dealing with a business such as Avatar Vehicles. However I gave them the opportunity to quote for a BMW 3 series and they not only saved me money; they took away all the hassles and time I would normally spend negotiating with dealers. Avatar did the shopping around; offered me the best deal, processed the order and the car was delivered on schedule and in pristine condition. The whole experience from start to finish was "slick" and "professional".

Mercedes E Class

I recently had my first experience with Avatar,when I decided to sell my old car. I was given a seat in a comfortable office,and talked through the process step-by-step by Steve and Tony. They were courteous and helpful in a way that is rare to find these days. My car was sold quickly, and with minimal effort. After my car was sold, I was guided in the direction of a new car that suited me and my lifestyle. There was a distinct lack of that stereotypical, pushy, "hard-sell" attitude and I felt incomplete control throughout the entire sell / buy process. Finance went through speedily, and I am now in proud possession of a brand new Mercedes E220 Avant Garde. I would just like to say thank you. Keep up the good work!
