Willing to help anything and answer any questions you have! 100% recommend! I wouldn't drive 300 miles if they wasnt worth it!!

It is always a pleasure to deal with the team at Hawkins Launceston, Nick and his team always make you feel welcome and valued. Once again I received outstanding service throughout a hassle free purchase including driving away with my personalised number plate already registered and on the car. I would not buy a car from anyone or anywhere else.

Brought a Jaguar X Type estate from here. Car was a reasonable price and the company were professional and courteous with absolutely no pressure to purchase. Brian the salesman I dealt with was great, and was helpful and polite. An asset to his firm.

I bought a 2008 Peugeot 207 from Launceston car centre and it’s a spotless car inside and out and drives like a dream bought at a reasonable price I’m very pleased and I would highly recommend the car sales centre.

Unit 39A & B/Fennel Business Park, Launceston PL15 7ED, UK – 01566 777715

Great staff and garage. Have used a few other garages around and found them all lacking in one way or another. Had my MOT and subsequent failures all sorted out by Paul and his mechanics. Open, honest and friendly. Did not feel messed around at all and all was very transparent.

This is a great place to go to when you are ignorant about what is wrong with your car. Honest, friendly, helpful service...We are now loyal customers of some years standing.

What are you rights when your buy a used car?
The Citizen's Advice Bureau have an excellent and comprehensive section on their website. If you find something wrong after purchasing a used car It’s worth knowing that you’ll still have legal rights even if you don’t do the proper checks. If there’s something wrong with your used car you may have a legal right to a repair or some or all of your money back.

Make sure a trader is trustworthy
If you’re buying from a trader look for an established firm with links to trade associations like the Retail Motor Industry Federation or a sign that says they follow The Motor Ombudsman's code of practice look for a trader with cars inspected by an independent engineer or motoring organisations.

Buying from an auction
Auctions are the riskiest way of buying a used car as you probably won’t have the legal protection that you have buying through a trader. Ensure that you read the auction house’s T and Cs before buying a car.

Check a car’s history

Check the car’s details with the DVLA
  • Ask the seller for the car’s registration number
  • MOT test number
  • mileage
  • make and model
Use the DVLA’s free online vehicle information checker to make sure what the seller tells you matches the DVLA’s records.

Check the MOT and history
You should check that MOT tests have been done regularly throughout the car’s history. Check this on GOV.UK. This is a free service.

Get a private history check.
These will cost up to £20 – but they can be worth it! This will give you valuable information about serious problems the car might have including if:
the car has been stolen
the seller still owes money on the car
the car has been in a serious accident
the car is showing the correct mileage
the car has been written off

Inspect the car and take a test drive
You should arrange to view the car in daylight, preferably when it’s dry - it’s harder to spot damage to the car if it’s wet. It’s a good idea to meet at a private seller’s house so that if something goes wrong after you’ve bought the car, you’ll have a record of their address.

The AA has a useful checklist for what to look out for when inspecting a used car and its paperwork. Make sure you ask about the car’s service history.

Always take the car for a test drive.
