He is currently trading under the name of Cheshire Vehicle Sales (and I suspect a few others). He is using Walmsley Farm, Green Lane, Leigh, WN7 2TP to show his vehicles to customers.

He currently has ads on autotrader which show the cars with the aforementioned farm in the background. The phone number given in autotrader for him is: 0161-818-****. I have seen him at the farm and he said he was renting a unit there off his friend. This is probably untrue, but he is using it for appointments and test drives with potential customers (victims).

I should also mention that Walmsley Farm is a livery stables and there are reports of police raiding it and finding drugs and guns. Also one girls horse was shot in the night, so I suspect that it is owned by some sort of low lifes. The report said 3 men were arrested but gave no names. This was a couple of years back.

Anyone who wants to corner him can easily find one of his vehicles on Autotrader, phone the number and arrange a viewing. I am keeping track and will post any suspected vehicles under different names that I think are him on here.

People stay away from this car trader previously advertising on Autotrader

They were hard to contact

I needed to cancel ad in auto trader because I sold my car. Unfortunately, auto trader said they were sending me an email to reset my password, but it never came to my inbox. The only way to cancel my ad was to call them, which is why I used your service. It is not a big deal. Please dont contact me. Thanks, Kevin Dressler

Bad advertisement

Lots of POA prizes, have to phone on most Truck, Busses TLB's prizes. not what I would want to see if I am in the general investigation of an item.

User's recommendation: It should not be allowed to have POA prize.

Car has undisclosed faults and they will not answer phone , or send MOT

As stated I brought a Mini Cooper from kelltstradings after seeing it on Autotrader website, on getting home I found that the MOT was not in the paperwork , after 3 weeks of phone calls and emails I still haven't received it, also the V5 was missing and DVLA has no record of getting a V62, the only time I manage to get through on the phone is to use somebody elses phone, and they either tell me it's in the post or that they will call back but never do

Chico's auto is not a A plus company

They sold a car to me at noon and before I could pick it up they sold it again

User's recommendation: do not do business with them.

Bewhere

I bought a car off Danny Stones (Hart Common) last year. When it was delivered the driver said Danny couldn't find the log book . I phoned Danny & he reassured me that he would look for it & post it to me He then said he would tax the car for me so that i could drive it right away if i transferred him the money (£178.80p). I had no reason to disbelieve him so i sent him the money. He never taxed the car or sent me the log book. I had to sort it out with the DVLA . I rang him several times but was just fobbed off, he then didn't answer my calls but answered right away when i used another phone. He had 2 phones & was known as Danny on 1 phone & Adam on his other phone. I even went back to his car showroom (100 mile travel for me) to find it was closed & a window smashed, this was only 3 weeks after i had bought a car off him. I hope this story helps others/ Regards Ian

For Sale OR Sold????

After 3 requests on the red 2006 Mercedes SLK 280 VIN WDBWK54F126503 asking price $10,800 the private seller in Jupiter, Fl. emailed me with one word SOLD! That was a couple of weeks ago but yet it is still listed as "for sale". Is it available or not? If not, why is it still being advertised? Is this a "SCAM"?

Paid a deposit on a car to be delivered 2 days later and he stopped taking my calls as soon as I made the payment. When I managed to get a hold of him he was abusive then sent me a fake proof of refund and of course no refund was received. When I contacted him again...

Rip off!

I listed my car for sale on Autotrader last Saturday. The ad nevee went live. I called all day Monday and Tuesday. I even drove to their office only to be told “go to the website.” Each day I was told someone would call me in 2 hours. I just called again today. The told me again someone will call me. What does it take for Autotrader to post my ad? This is like the post office in the USSR.

Auto trader doesn't let go of your wallet

I'm an independent pre owned car dealer that has been using Autotrader since 2015. The rates have more than doubled since 2015 and so we decided to cancel our Autotrader who was hosting our webpage. We called in to cancel the service and we were told it was no problem. We confirmed the cancellation by email. Auto trader was very quick with cancelling all our services, BUT the bills have kept coming and almost 2 months later they are billing us for services we no longer use or have access to. STAY AWAY There are better companies out there that give the same services for a lot less money
