I had been searching for a Mercedes R129 for sometime and eventually found a car that fitted by requirements, early model, great provenance , low mileage and in first class order. As soon as I enquired Craig was helpful, supportive and clearly a petrol head who was great to do business with. He found a new owner for my precious Mercedes 300e saloon and the deal was sealed. Well worth the 300 mile trip from Lancashire and then a fantastic trip back. We have stayed in touch and I am sure will do sharing our love of great cars. Thanks Craig.

So this is the reply I get when I give the new buyer of my Coupe GT, the details of the unlucky buyer, Bill who missed out.......

I hope Bill is a Teenager because I will be an Old Man before Amy goes to a New Home 🤣 , but always good to know . 
Great to meet you today and thanks for showing us round . 

Got lots of admiring looks and beeps and thumbs up on my journey back . 

Amy did not skip a beat on the 289 mile journey Home and the Weather was pretty kind to us . Just raining in Manchester , but nothing new there. Fuel economy was Fantastic also . I filled her to the brim with the Good Stuff and she has still got just under half a tank left , steady 60 mph and the odd bit of congestion with traffic . Not bad eh ! 

I am absolutely over the Moon with my Purchase . Thanks so much for letting me buy her and if you are missing her too much let me know and I will send you a picture 

She is tucked up now in her new home and the heater is on for a few hours to dry her off and warm her up . 

Thanks Again Craig

"Just got home and it sounded awesome all the way! Didn't miss a beat and I had a

huge smile on my face! Thanks again for such an easy and enjoyable special car

buying experience Craig. It's been a joy."

"Hi Craig, journey home a long one but a great day - thanks a million for

taking the time to make it such a good experience. Thanks again Craig.

It’s so rare to enjoy a white glove service when buying a used car these days,

however that’s exactly what I received from start to finish from Craig Cater at

Carter Sports & Prestige when I recently purchased my Range Rover Vogue.

Not only was the car just what I was looking for, but it was prepared well and during

the inspection nothing was too much trouble. I felt under no pressure whatsoever and

Craig took the time to answer every question in detail. The test drive was relaxed and informative and Craig demonstrated his deep knowledge of the brand, model and cars

in general.100% no question I would look to use Craig again and in fact have already commissioned him to look for my next car.

Give him a try and see for yourself – you won’t be disappointed.

Having had the pleasure of purchasing one of Craig’s superbly prepared cars from his private collection a while ago (Lotus Esprit Turbo) it was a natural step to commission him to sell for me. Craig made the whole process totally painless. I left the car with him and within a few weeks the sale was complete and money in my bank. His attention to detail, knowledge, and ease of manner is second to none. 
Thanks again Craig.

Hi Craig. Back home safe and sound and she's away in the garage. Good journey apart from Dartford as per usual. Drives just as I remember my old blue one did. Really pleased to be back in a Rover. Will text you tomorrow after I've been to bank. Thanks for everything, all the best.

Simon Smith - Rover 2000

Craig's personal enthusiasm and pleasure of seeing beautiful cars appreciated is infectious. Great service, patient and downright decent chap. Good luck Craig

My wife and I have known Craig for over 30 years and he has been a delightful chap to know. Always courteous and attentive to people. We have watched his career with interest over this time and he has always succeeded by dint of hard work and knowledge of his favourite subject - cars. This latest venture will be as successful as his previous work in the automotive industry.

Recently visited Carter Sports & Prestige.
The collection of cars is fabulous.
My wife and I felt truly welcomed more as friends rather than customers.
The owner Craig was a real gentleman and clearly is enthusiastic about cars.
Nice to see an actual personal collection being sold rather than just being in a showroom.
5 stars for sure and will definitely be back once Craig has sourced me the right car.

I purchased my E350 AMG Line from Carter Sports & Prestige and Craig was an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout the entire process. His passion and attention to detail was clear from the moment we first spoke and became evident when I met Craig in person. He is extremely meticulous in all details car related and this was certainly reflected in the way the Mercedes E350 was presented.  It did not feel like a typical car purchase from a normal car trader as you are actually buying from Craig’s personal collection and he allowed ample time for me to get fully acquainted with my new purchase before I happily drove away.  I had a couple of follow up queries and questions all of which were responded to in a timely manner and addressed immediately. I would not hesitate in recommending Carter Sports & Prestige to anyone in the market for something special coupled with a warm and welcoming experience.
