Ian Brown
Contacted GKS after Covid19 shutdown. I found them very helpful and their new safety arrangements reassuring and not overly onerous. Elliot gave first-class help and dealt with a late change in my choice with good nature......Oh and the car is excellent.
Les Bell

Arranged to collect vehicle and it was superbly well presented test drive and paperwork all arranged by Scott and he could not have been better presented prpared and helpful top marks my man a pleasure to deal with and a credit to GKS a very happy new year and many thanks. See you again Les Bell

I was looking for a Ford BMAX as I now own three dogs so the sliding back door was a must! Elliott found me a 2016 BMAX, complete with City Pack so has reversing parking sensors and electronic folding mirrors which are essential driving to work in Ermington from Ivybridge. I part exchanged my car (which I purchased from GKS) and drove it away last Thursday, I am so pleased with it, it didn't come with an owners manual but Elliott got me one from Ford which I picked up the next day, so could see how to open the bonnet!! I would highly recommend the staff at GKS, very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble.
Alan Lorimer
I was looking for a Volvo C30 and spotted one for sale on the GKS website. As I live in Scotland it was necessary for me to obtain an honest and accurate description of the vehicle. In the event James gave me a true assessment of the car and assured me that he would not have me travel miles south only to be disappointed. The car exceeded my expectations and I can only say that Im very happy with the car and with the service that GKS gave me that included a GKS driver meeting me at Exeter Airport. I cannot recommend this company highly enough.
Alan Lorimer
I live in the south of Scotland. I was interested in sourcing a Volvo C30. GKS were advertising one that appealed. I stressed to sales executive James that I needed an exact description of the car (warts and all), as I did not want a wasted round trip of 800 miles. James was very accurate in his assessment of the vehicle and I decided to purchase. The Volvo exceeded my expectations and after a testing run back to Scotland I'm delighted with my 'new' car. Also worth mentioning that GKS picked me up at Exeter Airport. James dealt with all the paper work with minimum fuss. I'd recommend this company to anyone - even from Scotland.

Neil Goddard
Just collected my 5th car supplied by GKS. I wouldnt dream of buying from anywhere else as their professionalism and customer service are second to none. They didnt have what I wanted on this occasion so I challenged Elliott to source me the right car. Because my requirement was very specific he did find it quite challenging and it did take some time. However, when he found what I wanted he went to acquire the car but then rejected it because It wasnt perfect and not up to yours or our standards. He consequently found what I asked for and what a stunning car it is. If you know what you want then I unreservedly recommend you trust their judgement and you allow GKS to find it for you! You wont be disappointed!!
Tony Dewhirst

Me and my husband fell in love with the Juke that GKS had for sale. We had never been to Buy a car at a business before, always private so we were very paranoid about what to expect... but James GKS very quickly sorted this out for us! He was so professional and honest, which we really do appreciate when it comes to sales! We will be recommending GKS wherever possible! Thank you for the 5* service, we are very happy customers!
Craig Hudson
A massive thank you to James and the team for making the purchase of our stunning BMW 3 series so straight forward and hassle free, nothing was to much bother even though we didn\'t pop in until nearly closing time but James stayed on to work out figures on our trade in and let us have a test drive that evening.Having bought a few cars from GKS now I would always recommend them to anyone with any type of budget for a top quality used car.

Miss Larissa Doswell
I had been without a car for about 4 months and I realised that it was time that I looked around to find a car for myself. I had been to all of the big car dealerships and something just wasn't quite right. Endless missed phone calls and emails from them all, which quite frankly is just annoying and desperate. So I thought I would stay local and I ended up buying a car with GKS! I was looked after by James who really helped me find the right car for me. He didn't pester or phone me constantly persisting that I bought a car from them. I ended up buying a little Fiat 500, and I love it. GKS stock really great cars and their service is fantastic. I couldn't recommend them more. Thankyou to GKS for all their help!
Mrs B Cross
Highly recommend GKS Bought my car from them on the 08/08/16,I was seen by james who dealt with my sale. He was very helpful and friendly like gemini,s are Thankyou see you in the future.

Mrs Lorraine Harper
We have only had our car a month all good so far, James our salesmen was very helpful and not at all pushy. We liked the idea that they standby there secondhand cars sales by offering there own 6 months warranty. We did not part ex so can't comment on that side of things. Would highly recommend.
Mr Hans Wardle
I recently purchased a car from GKS. The service received from James was excellent and I would recommend them to anyone. Great coffee too!!
Mrs K Mason
I used GKS recently to purchase my Peugeot. This is the first time I have used GKS and have to say that it won't be the last. The service was fantastic and seemed so much more personal then when you buy your car from a car supermarket and nothing seemed too much trouble. Would highly recommend GKS to family and friends.
Mr K Lane
Bought my Mercedes from GKS recently James was the salesperson who I dealt with and he was very friendly and professional many thanks Keith & Marilyn
Mr Mark Burrows
I recently bought a VW Golf from GKS. I had not dealt with them before but I will definitely be going back there. I dealt with James for the most part, who was extremely professional and helpful - but to be fair the whole team at GKS were excellent. I'm really happy with the car I purchased and they've been super helpful with some after sales queries I had too.
Mr & Mrs D Walke
Our family have bought cars from GKS for many years & have recommended them to a number of friends. It's refreshing to deal with a business that still puts customer service at the heart of their business.
Thanks to Simon and Elliott & all their team ...keep up the great work.

Mr A Wright
What I found refreshing, that there was none of the usual hard sell and was left to decide in peace. After deciding to purchase, everything was done quickly and professionally by James. At the moment I am well pleased, and would use again.

Bought an x type Jag from Elliott 4 weeks ago. Have know about the dealership for many years. 1st time I have bought a car from them. Very professional and car came in top condition. At the moment well pleased. Would certainly use them again
Freddy Weaver
I was attracted to this garage and dealership because they had the vehicle I was looking for in good condition second hand. So it was a welcome surprise to receive excellent service also. Elliott was extremely helpful - doing a full clean up job on the car even after I'd agreed to buy and put down the deposit. Very happy to have found them.
Mr Scivver
I was very happy with the service at GKS Of Ivybridge, they were all very friendly. I had a small problem with the drop top roof and they sorted it out no problem, they called me back within minutes and delivered a courtesy car to me as I live quite a way away from the dealership. I haven't got a single bad word to say about them.
Mr + Mrs Barnes
The Staff at GKS provided us with a a pain free purchase of our Qashqai Tekna. The car was in showroom condition when GKS handed it over to us and all the team were helpful, courteous and respectful of our wishes. Highly recommended!
Mr M Barton
Elliott provided an excellent service, I'm throughly enjoying my new mini. Thank you gks
Dave & Lisa Leonard
I can't recommend GKS Car Sales at Ivybridge highly enough. My family have bought quality cars from GKS for over 15 years and we cannot praise them enough for their customer care, quality vehicles and after sales support and service. All of our family and friends are now loyal GKS customers and if you have never visited their showrooms then I would really encourage you to do so. Just picked up our latest car (Nissan Qashqai) at the weekend and it is just perfect. We can't thank the staff enough for all they have done for us over the years.
James Webber
To Elliott and all the Staff at GKS, I would like to say a big thank you for the smooth purchase of my Ford Focus ST-3. The quality of care that GKS gives before, during and after sales is exemplary and continues now into the second generation of both seller and buyer. My family have been customers of GKS for many years and in all that time the standards have never faltered. As a potential customer for many years to come i find that reassuring and i know i will be back again for future car purchases.
Roger Ludwig
Took delivery of my Golf yesterday. The car is everything I had anticipated..and then some! Beautifully presented and drives like a dream. Customer care at G.K.S. is of the highest level, and should be used as a benchmark. My thanks to all at G.K.S., but especially Stefan, who dealt with the whole process with great efficiency, energy and good humour. G.K.S. and its staff are a credit to the motor industry!
Alastair Taylor
Hi Elliott, A big thankyou for the excellent service I received during the purchasing of my Vauxhall Astra Estate from GKS Car Sales. Elliott Staddon was a real gentleman to do business with ! The standard of valeting was exceptional. This together with full service, MOT and a 3 month warranty gave me 'peace of mind' and a feeling of complete satisfaction when I finally collected the car last week. I won't hesitate in recommending GKS to my friends and work colleagues, or indeed returning myself for a future purchase ! Thanks Again
Gary Pavey
Elliott, I wish to say that I really appreciated your professionalism but more appropriately your personal touch when you were dealing with myself which not only made me feel a valued customer once again but certainly has installed in me to not only continue in recommending GKS but also will ensure I return once again when the time is right for my next purchase. I have received numerous complimentary remarks already which confirms to me my choice was warranted. Thanks again Elliott
Mr K Harold
GKS service our fleet of vehicles. They are always helpfull, professional and very pleasant
Mr D Taylor
This is the first time I have used this garage, but based on my experience I would use them again - nice touch to have car cleaned at end of service!
Mr R Noble
I bought the car from the garage. Have the MOT & service and small repairs done. When a garage cleans your car without asking that's a good thing - not many do this. I have found a garage i can trust. The staff are helpful & polite
Mr G Packer
Possibly the best customer care i have ever experienced, my family and my self have been using GKS for years every time nothing is to much effort and the service is amazing . Today whilst dropping my car for a service my other car broke down , The staff assisted helped leant me a spare car. I am still totally over whelmed by the service they provide , this is a very special garage and service centre.
Mr D Browne
Absolutely first rate customer service, especially from Stefan in sales and Sandy in accounts. Purchsed a ford focus estate in March 2015 and we are very happy with our purchse. If you are thinking of buying a car then would recommend GKS of Ivybridge
Mr S Bond
I have just recently traded in and purchased a 3 year old vehicle from GKS. The vehicle was reasonably priced in comparison with those for sale in other parts of the country. I found the sales team very polite, knowledgeable and professional. He also gave me good advice regarding car insurance and extended warranties. I ended up saving a fortune on insurance across the board as a result of this advice. The vehicle that I purchased required a couple of small matters to be sorted out and through this I had a very positive experience with the Service reception,the Mechanics and the Head Mechanic. To put it simply, nothing was too much trouble and communication has been top notch. When I collected the car at point of purchase it was spotless and just like new. Overall I am so impressed with my new car and I have recommended and will continue to recommend GKS. I will return hopefully next year to upgrade my wife's car.
