About us

WELCOME TO  Car-Place.co.uk

After receiving the Fair Trading Award from Essex Trading Standards over 28 years ago, our Car Place company director decided to step up to the plate  to become trading standards approved.

Buy With Confidence knowing that this dealership was the first Trading Standards Approved car retailer (new or used) in Thurrock to be approved by Essex Trading Standards. The aim of the buy with confidence scheme is to help consumers to avoid rip-offs. By providing a list of reputable local businesses that have all been independently checked by staff from Trading Standards Services against the scheme rules.

Some more about us.

Car Place ltd is also an RAC Approved dealership which includes RAC warranty and breakdown cover. Most of our vehicles are full service history and may be sourced from lease companies that ensure a rigorous maintenance history.

Fully licensed credit facilities enable Car Place to tailor a finance package to suit you. With over twenty years experience. If we can’t get you credit the chances are, no one can.

We can introduce you to a limited number of finance providers. We do not charge fees for our Consumer Credit services. We will receive a payment(s) or other benefits from finance providers should you decide to enter into an agreement with them, typically either a fixed fee or a fixed percentage of the amount you borrow. The payment we receive may vary between finance providers and product types. The payment received does not impact the finance rate offered.

Alternatively, all major credit and debit cards are accepted for payment.

Car Place has sold cars to many satisfied customers from Grays, Thurrock, and Greater London. South London, North London, East London, West London. Also Essex, Kent, Suffolk, Surrey, Hertfordshire and Southend Not forgetting Romford, Basildon, Greenwich, Dartford and Dagenham.
