- 5 star review


Very courteous, efficient and professional service. Simon Shield was very diligent in ensuring the car was in perfect working order. Sales service and communication was first rate, which was a refreshing change from the industry norm.   5 star review on Feefoo and Autotrader - January 2021

- 5 star review


Simon Shield is a fair and honest trader. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who is buying a new car. He helped me throughout the purchase process, and guided me with the decisions I needed to make. The car I purchased came with a years MOT, so once insured and taxed, it was ready to drive away, and I was safe in the knowledge that it had been throughly checked over. I valued the professionalism and integrity of Simon Shield. I 100% trusted his judgement and advice. If I’m ever looking for another car in the future, I would start and finish my search at Simon Shield. On a final note, I absolutely love my new car! It is perfect for me.   5 star Autotrader review January 2021  

- *** Simon Shield Triple A Star Trader ***


All the reviews are right! Great local dealer, honest, easy going, no pressure, decent cars, accurately described. It actually made buying a car a pleasure rather than a stressful experience. I was so confident in the reviews and description, I reserved the audi TT roadster without seeing it and I'm glad I did. It is brilliant in every way. Thanks simon shield cars, you're a local gem of a dealer!   5 star review on Autotrader - January 2021

- This is how all dealers should be like.


Long range purchase from Scotland meant both parties had to trust each other and be flexible. Despite COVID restrictions delivery of Mini JCW and collection of trade-in was organised within the rules. Car exactly as described.Highly recommend this dealer, very helpful and personable.   5 star review from Autotrader - January 2021 - 5 stars

- Satisifed purchase


I have had my car- Subaru Outback estate- for just about 3 months now, bought as a -trade in sold as seen-from Simon, primarily to get me to and from the south west of France, Simon could not have been any more helpful in sourcing lost history for the car, he was not pushy, easy to talk to and held the car for me whilst making my mind up, the car has performed without fault , fully loaded, to and from France. If you are in the market for a used car make him 1st call, you will not be dissapointed. Thanks Simon December 2020 - 5 star review on Autotrader

Excellent service and Communication. Simon was a pleasure to deal with, and even collected me from the train station when I went to collect my new car.   5 star review Autotrader - 2nd December 2020

- Excellent service, fantastic car


I was looking for a cheap little run around and saw a Px vehicle that Simon Shield Cars had. Simon was a pleasure to deal with, open and honest throughout - that's a rarity for many these days. I'll definitely go back to Simon when I'm looking for my next 'nice' car!   Autotrader 5 star review - 17 November 2020

- Pleasure to deal with


Right from the start buying a car from here was a pleasure. Cannot recommend highly enough. I would use again in an instant.   5 star review on Autotrader 12 November 2020

- New Car purchase


I had a great experience buying a new car from Simon. It comes across that it’s more important to him that you are happy with everything about the car before any sort of sale. He was able to Answer any queries that I had and took me on a detailed tour of the inside and out of the car. Finalising a deal can sometimes be awkward, but this purchase for me seemed effortless and pressure free. I couldn’t recommend buying a car from simon shields more, if you want a car that comes with reassurance, a quality guarantee and great customer service.. give him a call.   5 star review on Autotrader 11th November 2020

- Buying my BMW


Simon Shield Cars were great right from the first call to the moment we drove away with our new car. After having felt with a couple of dealers who went quiet when we asked a few questions about the history of the car, Simon Shield Cars comes across as a scrupulously honest dealer - they answered all of our questions and even did a specific video for us of the car so we could see any minor marks on the bodywork (there were two very minor stone chips on the front which he pointed out). The car was immaculate in presentation and exactly as described. Simon Shield gave us a very fair price for our previous trade in and were always on the phone to talk through the pros and cons of the car (they were open one honest on all aspects of what we were buying) the payment process, and how we could do things safely and easily (as this was just before lockdown 2.0). I would recommend Simon Shield Cars to anyone looking for an honest car dealer and would buy a car from them again without hesitation.   5 star review on Autotrader 9th November 2020

- Fantastic service - friendly and very efficient


Our car had just failed its MOT and was beyond repair, We found one of Simons cars which we really liked the look of and purchased it that day. I'm quite cautious when making a purchase of this value, however after I read Simons reviews and met him I felt comfortable to carry out the purchase. The reviews speak for their self's and because we had such a positive experience buying this car from Simon, We felt we owed it to him to leave him a positive review. We would purchase from Simon Shield cars again without hesitation Thanks again Simon! Ashley & Sam   5 star Autotrader review - 14th October 2020

Not your stereotypical secondhand car salesman - no flannel or hard sell, just straightforward good service with integrity. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Simon.   5 star Autotrader review - 11th October 2020  

- 5 star review on Autotrader


Truly pleasant experience from first contact having seen the car on Autotrader to eventual purchase. Simon is very professional without any sales pressure. The cars on display are all of a very high standard. We purchased a Ford S Max which was immaculate in its preparation. Albeit many years ago, but we have purchased a car from Simon and that proved to be very reliable. I would have no hesitation in recommending this garage if you are looking to change your car. If you see something you like you will not be disappointed. This in no small part is due to Simon’s quiet helpful advice in making your choice but without any sales pressure.   5 star Autotrader review - 29th September 2020

- Purchased an S Max - a truly effortless experience


The experience was very good from start to finish and I would highly recommend Simon Shield Cars.   5 star Autotrader review - 25th September 2020

- Excellent service and a happy customer!


ravelled over three Hours to view, buy and trade existing vehicle. This was not without risk, but the car as described on the phone by SImon was in almost mint condition, the process was hard to fault, no pressure we were given time to discuss , test drive and debate both ends of the deal and ended up very happy with our purchase, better than a main dealer in my honest opinion.   5 star review on Autotrader - 22nd September 2020

Got a solid deal on a 4 year old Subaru Forester with only 19K on the clock. Car was close to showroom condition. Straight and fair negotiation of a deal including trading in my old Subaru Outback. A very easy and satisfactory deal all around. Recommended.   Autotrader 5 star review 31st August 2020  

- Dead straight deal on a very fine car.


When looking for my next car I was drawn to Simon Sheild Cars Ltd by the amount of 5 Star recommendations. I can see why, as the service was superb. The VW Touran was as good on the forecourt as it was on the website. A really good, genuine and well maintained car in excellent condition. From the outset I felt at ease and there was no hard sell after a test drive. I would definitely go back again and have no hesitation in recommending to others.   5 star review from Autotrader 14th August 2020

On arrival simon made us feel very welcome. He was very professional and knowledgeable but never felt any pressure to buy. He was honest and generally a nice guy. It was our first time buying a newer car and he took the time to go through everything the car had to offer. We loved the fact that there was a video of the car on his website which showed us more of the car than just pictures. Would highly recommend and would defiantly return when we are ready for our next car. Thank you Simon. X   5 star review on Autotrader 27 July 2020

Simon Shields was very welcoming when my wife and I arrived at his showroom on 20/06/2020. We found him to be professional, friendly and honest. The car was presented to us in a very clean state.

You know instantly when you meet a car salesman.. Typical wheeler dealer my partner calls them. We met a few. A big reason why I chose to buy off this garage was because of the owner. Having my own business I appreciate the relationships you make with your customers and the owner does exactly that. He has the passion for his business and it makes it not just about the money. He expressed how he likes to know the background of each car he sells and makes sure they are good quality cars before selling. Working extra hours after lockdown, he allowed me to booking a test drive out of his office hours. He kept in touch and found a fault on the car which he fixed immediately. Very thorough with paperwork and makes sure I knew ins and outs of the car I was buying. I highly recommend his service and I will be back in the future. Thank you again.   Autotrader 5 star review - 22nd June 2020  

- Couldn't have asked for more......


 cannot begin to describe how happy I am with 1 my purchase and 2 the level of service received. The service was very professional and honest from the onset. Simon Shield Cars are very particular and you can see that by the quality of they sell. I was so compelled by the level of service and the quality of the car that I didn't even feel right trying to negotiate on the price. I've already passed on their details to a friend that is looking to upgrade because of the new ULEZ scheme.   Autotrader 5 star review - 22nd June 2020

I would highly recommend buying a car from Simon Shields. I was looking for a new car and they really went over and beyond to find the right car for me and at the right price. There was no pressure put onto buy either. Simon did all the leg work and his years of experience in the car industry made me very comfortable knowing I was driving away in a quality car. Could not recommend enough!   5 star review Autotrader and Google,  7th June 2020

- Incredible service, highly recommended


I have just purchased a lovely Volvo V60 with Simon and the whole experience, from initial enquiry to driving it off the forecourt, was outstanding. Simon is courteous, very knowledgeable and happy to help you make an informed and confident decision. I was able to ask lots of questions and test drive my 'shortlist' of cars without any pressure at all. I am delighted with my purchase - a brilliant find in superb condition, made even better by the advice Simon gave on financing options. I am a big fan of his approach in stocking only vehicles that are in excellent condition and with exemplary service histories. I would not hesitate to recommend the company to others and I would buy with him again without question. I don't think I have ever found the purchase of a car so smoothly managed before and I am very grateful to Simon for his help. Thank you, Simon. 5 star review on Autotrader, 6th June 2020

This is the third vehicle I have purchased from Simon. This is now my go-to place if I need a “new” car. I would encourage anyone who is looking to buy a car to “drive the extra miles” to go to Simon Shields. All the vehicles I have bought have been very low mileage, literally spotless, well maintained “like new”. Living in Essex it is not just round the corner for me, but I have complete faith in Simon and the vehicles that he chooses to sell. A very personable man, honest and reliable. I would have no hesitation in recommending Simon, in fact I would say do yourself a favour for trouble free, no pressure, peace of mind vehicle purchasing please go have a look.   5 star review on Autotrader 15th February 2020

What a fantastic service from Simon. We brought our ford Kuga from Simon and couldn’t be happier the service we got from was 5* from start to finish. We organised our own finance which was not a problem for Simon where as other company’s wouldn’t allow us to do that . We had decided to keep our current car at first but decided after to sell it, Simon made us a very fair offer which we accepted and he made it very straight forward and easy for us. I would 100% recommend Simon shield cars for a new car you won’t find an easier more friendly person to work with. Will definitely look to them again in the future.   Recommendation from a customer on Facebook 4th February 2020

We recently bought a used Mazda MX-5 from Simon Sheild Cars Ltd. Having seen a suitable car and reading the fabulous 5 Star reviews on this website we traveled nearly two hours to Simon's dealership. The reviews were all justified, from the outset we got a very good impression and both Simon and his wife Caroline were most professional, with great customer service. We immediately felt at ease and confident in their professional integrity. The purchasing process was very straightforward, Simon dealt with the road tax and DVLA matters swiftly. The car was prepared to our requirements promptly and ready to drive away. We would definitely recommend Simon Sheild Cars Ltd.   5 star review on Autotrader 24 January 2020

- Excellent garage


I have been buying cars for over 30 years now and I can honestly say, (hand on heart) that I have never dealt with someone selling used cars who is as open, honest, helpful, trustworthy and knowledgable as Simon Shield Cars. Right from the beginning during a test drive I could tell this was going to be someone very pleasant to buy a car from. Simon has excellent mechanical knowledge of cars, and it was also obvious that he is very fussy about the cars he places on his forecourt because they were all in superb condition. He is also very easy to chat with and he went out of his way to ensure that I left his small, rural dealership as a satisfied and happy customer. He even arranged the finance and got me a great deal as well. A very pleasant experience and I am extremely happy with my purchase! I also have genuine peace of mind now a few months after purchase (which is so rare these days) and have already recommended Simon to a few family and friends. :-)   2 January 2020 - 5 star review on Autotrader

- Friendly, honest reliable used car dealer


I purchased a car from Simon Shield Cars for my daughter and the whole process was pleasant stress free experience. There was no pressure applied to make the sale, we were given plenty of time to test drive and examine the car. We were treated in a polite and respectful manner throughout. The car was well presented and the vehicles background clearly explained to us. Being of mature years I have purchased several second hand cars during my lifetime and have to say I felt this is the most trustworthy dealer I have dealt with. I wholeheartedly recommend Simon Shield Cars and wouldn't hesitate to buy another vehicle from them.   5 star review on Autotrader 31st December 2019

I went over to Simon's to view an S5. When I got there the car was accurately described and well presented. Simon was genuine and as well as showing me all the good bits, did point out the minor blemishes that you would expect of an 8 year old car. Simon is really interested in you and what your looking for but didn't apply any pressure and I felt comfortable to view the car in my own time. I would highly recommend his garage.   5 star review on Autotrader 13 Nov 2019

- First Class Experience


For a start, Simon Shield's adverts are detailed, informative and most importantly, accurate. Simon was great from initial enquiry and provided nothing but genuine information on the car. I paid a (refundable) deposit and, as I was coming from Ireland, made my way confident (as could be) the car was going to be as advertised. Simon actually collected me in Ipswich town and brought me back to view the car and even then only provided information on the car and facilitated me in assessing its condition. True enough, the car was as advertised and I was more than happy to purchase. Handover process was quick and painless and I wound up getting a great warranty package, at no extra cost. As a car dealer, they're the best I've experienced. Thanks again, Simon, the wife loves the car!   5 star review on Autotrader 29 September 2019

Simon was amazing from start to finish, he answered any questions we had and was only ever happy to do so. From giving us honest opinions of his past experiences and feedback he made the whole experience which can be stressful as easy as possible. Left with a great car, for a great price. Will definitely be buying of him again! 10/10   5 star review from Autotrader 5 September 2019  

- Amazing experience from start to finish


Had several conversations with the owner regarding the vehicle, agreed the "deal" and then travelled from Newcastle upon Tyne to Ipswich to complete the transaction. The car was exactly as described and all the relevant agreed actions had been carried out. The owner was extremely helpful and professional throughout, keeping us informed every step of the way regarding finance, MOT's etc. I would definitely recommend this company and would have no hesitation in buying from them again even if meant travelling over 300 miles.   5 star review on Autotrader 2 September 2019

- Extremely satisfied!


Very friendly family run business. I went to view a car i had seen on autotrader. There was no pressure with salesmen talk and the dealer allowed me to view the vehicle at my own leisure and crawl all over it to make sure everything was ok. I took the car for a test drive which was a leisurly drive around the Suffolk country side allowing me to get to grips with all the features. On the trip the dealer was able to realy the information that i required or said he would look it up on our return to the garage. I decided to purchase the vehicle from dealer as the price was good and warranty offered was great as it have me piece of mind. Very happy with the service i got.   5 star review on Autotrader August 2019

This dealer was recommended to me by another trusted dealer nearby, although for me it was a 200+ mile round trip.. I was very happy with the transaction.

Would definitely recommend Simon Shield Cars Ltd. Simon is honest and passionate about the cars he sells. My son purchased a Mercedes A class from him and I’ll be totally honest and say I tried to persuade him not to spend all of his hard earned money on a car! After speaking with Simon he reassured me the car was a real bargain and he knew the history of the car from new. My son has been thrilled with the car and the service he received from Simon. Great to find a rare, genuine car dealer!   On Autotrader May 2019

We were looking for a small economical, low mileage, reliable, and a good above condition car. With the help of Autotrader we managed to find just that, at Simon Shield Cars Ltd. No pressure was put on us at any time, in fact the car sold it's self. It was a Peugeot 107 Active, it had all the criteria described earlier. The price was very fair and reasonable. The car was fully serviced and valeted, and all the paperwork was completed promptly and efficiently! It was a pleasure to do business in a friendly, no pressure environment. I would certainly recommend Simon Shield Cars Ltd!   May 2019 Autotrader 5 star review

 I cannot fault Simon Shield Cars for anything. From the moment I saw the advert, to the moment I drove my car off the forecourt, the Simon Shield service was beyond par. He agreed to fit us in after working hours to accommodate our busy schedule. Not only was the car sparkling clean, but had a full MOT and service to boot. They were patient while we gathered our finances to purchase and were never pushy. Thank you, Simon Shield Cars LTD.

The owner is an experienced car salesman, who is both polite and courteous. You give him a brief and he matches you to a sensible choice of car.

Simon and Caroline are both excellent communicators, and are very professional. The customer service I received from start to end was excellent, I’m glad I made the 247 mile journey to buy my Skoda Superb – a fantastic car. Simon even went out of his way to meet me two hours before his opening hours just to help me with my financing application and required paperwork, allowing me to return to Cardiff and be at work on time to start at 2pm. I am very humbled by his kindness. Simon is the most honest and genuine car dealer I’ve come across from my years of buying used cars, and I will recommend Simon Shield Cars Ltd very highly to anyone looking for a reliable used car, with excellent customer care, including after sales care which you don’t often get in today’s car market. Simon, thanks so much for your patience and for your honest value on my part-exchange. Overall, I’m extremely satisfied. May your business grow beyond your expectations, you deserve it.

I bought a BMW 5 Series Touring from Simon and I couldn’t be happier with the car or the service. He took the time to make sure the car was right for us, especially my wife as it’s an automatic. His attention to detail and time taken out to help us was superb. I have been to a few big dealerships but the service from Simon was far better.

I have delayed writing this review to ensure we had no problems. We bought our car about 2 months ago we choose the garage due to the countless positive reviews. And we can’t agree more. We found simon to be honest in his appraisal of the car. Conscientious about wanting the car a perfect as possible before in our hands both mechanically and body work. Felixable in working to find times for us to view car that fitted around husbands job. And even on collection being efficient given our three young children with us. Simon appears to be an honest man how enjoys car and has high quality standards he insists on maintaining within the sale. We would not hesitate to purchase from him again.   October 2018 from Autotrader - 5 star review

The car I bought from Simon 4 years ago has given me trouble free motoring and whenever I have needed another car his website would be one of the first places I'd visit. Although he may not have had the car that met my needs he was always willing to spare the time to give me sound advice on both buying and selling a car. I have just bought a 10 year old Golf and after a week of ownership I'm delighted with it. When taking possession of the vehicle he insisted on showing me around the controls and thanked me for my purchase as I drove away. Simon's cars are always immacualtely presented on the forecourt (I regularly drove past when living close by) and when ready to be driven away; the consummate professional.   August 2018

I am very satisfied with my new vehicle from SSC. He has a carefully selected range of used vehicles to suit most peoples needs. I found that all the information regarding the vehicle was clearly made available. The price of the vehicle was very competitive based upon prices elsewhere and its condition and mileage. SS is a very experienced and pleasant gentleman who remains patient and polite during the selection process. I believe that you can rely upon his experience and keen eye to keep in stock vehicles that you would expect to give you the best service. This is the second vehicle that I have purchased from SSC and I am most content with both. Before you buy your next car have a ride out to see the forecourt at Gt Bricett even if you don't find what you want it's a lovely part of the country. I am very happy with my new car from SSC. All information (good & bad) was made readily available, no surprises, good price, polite pleasant and knowledgeable service.   August 2018

Audi Allroad 2010 - Yes, all the 5 star reviews do not lie! Finally a dealer who I will do my best to buy my future cars from! It was a pleasure from start to finish. I have bought a lot of cars over the years (a bad habit) and this has been the most pleasurable experience! The car itself is a gem, although almost 8 years old it looked like new and drove like new. It already had a fresh MOT and had recently been serviced and everything was ready to go. (bought and drove away in around one hour!) Super helpful, open and knowledgeable. I tried a similar (more expensive) car at another dealership with half the mileage and 2 years newer and it was not comparable. Simon showed me the areas on the car where there were slight imperfections and the price advertised was much lower than similar cars on the net. I have driven over 1500 miles without a squeak or rattle and the car is fantastic. Highly recommended.   5* review January 2018

Simon was a seasoned professional, no pressure and easy to deal with. We saw the car and was as it was described online. There were a couple of minor issues but we were able to strike a deal to overcome. We were title disappointed as all four tyres needed replacing, plenty of tread but they were cracked all over... our fault for missing this on inspection. All in all tho a good service and would recommend Simon.

Simon Shield Cars is one of those little gems that is truly a dying breed these days. I have just purchased a car from Simon and cannot emphasise enough how relaxed and assured I was during the whole car buying process, Simon was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. If you are looking for a individual service that today is hard to find, look no further.  

- 5 star experience


Right from the off once I had seen the car I wanted on SSC website the owner Simon made very quick contact enabling us to discuss a deal taking my vehicle in part exchange. The whole process was seamless with no pressure and very honest one to one conversation. Once we had agreed a deal in principle I met Simon to test drive my choice and to give him the opportunity to drive and check my vehicle. I found Simon to be very knowledgeable, honest and trustworthy. We shook hands on the deal which we were both pleased with. Simon then completed all the appropriate paper work including licensing and insurance. I drove the car away the same day. What more can I say other than Simon made the whole process very enjoyable. MANY THANKS.  

- GOING THE EXTRA MILE !! (No pun intended)


I recently bought a seat exeo from Simon shield cars, I have to say that the whole experience was excellent. Simon is a true professional and nothing is to much trouble for him. I would recommend this family run business as they have quality cars and service to match. 100% customer service.

- 100% customer service


Simon Shield provided a first class service when selling me a lovely car. I have no hesitation in recommending Simon Shield Cars Ltd.  

- First class


Car buying made easy! Reading the many testimonials and talking to Simon on the phone it was very easy to believe that the car was exactly as it was described in the advertisement. Once we arrived it took less time to agree to buy the car than to do the paperwork. Simon even put a bit of fuel in to make sure we got to the next service station and also recommended a pub for lunch. The only downside was that he was 100 miles away but well worth going that far. 

- Straightforward


The car was as described. Our experience of Simon Shield Cars was great. He was honest, fair and did exactly what he said he would. Happy to recommend him and use him again. 

- Great experience of a local car dealer


From start to finish of my p/exchange deal Simon was hassle and pressure free.

- My part exchange deal


I was looking for a small car for my daughters 18th birthday gift as she had just passed her test. i thought i would look on Auto Trader as they have a wide variety to choose from. I came across a 1.2 fiesta listed at Simon Shield cars which looked and sounded to good to be true. I gave him a ring and the most politeful gentleman gave all the right signals as being genuine. I went over to look at the car and it was as described in perfect condition. Simon went through every detail about the cars history and all the paperwork was straight forward so we done the deal and i now have a very happy daughter. I would highly recommend visiting Simon shield cars for a welcoming no pressure experience. Thankyou very much.

- A welcoming experience


Car was prepared and all paperwork was in place. very professional and thorough sale procedure which was enjoyable and not stressful. I would thoroughly recommend this dealer

- Highly recommend


After seeing the quality of cars for sale and the testimonials from previous customers, I decided to drive from Essex to view this car. Having spoken to Simon on the phone, I was able to put a refundable deposit on the car, as I was unable to go for a few days due to work commitments. When I finally got there I was pleased to find a genuinely described car, a salesman who is not at all pushy, Simon has had this business for over twenty years and it is no surprise why! Very pleasant 'gentleman' who is not like your normal salesman at all. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely go back when I want to purchase another car. 5 star service. Thank you so much Simon.  

- 5 Stars Simon Shield


Really pleased with the service we received from Simon. My Dad initially went to view the car for me & put a deposit down straight away as he said the car was lovely & didn't want me to lose out. When I picked it up I couldn't have been happier! Simon also gave both my Dad & I the peace of mind that we could contact him if we had any problems with regards to the car once the sale had completed. Thankfully the car is still running like a dream & we have had no problems. Simon is a genuinely lovely guy who takes pride in the cars he sells.  

- Great car and service = happy customer


So I purchased my beautiful car from Simon Shields Cars and what a very pleasant man he was. He could see how excited I was and how pleased I was to be getting in it. He processed all the paperwork efficiently and he was a pleasure to deal with both on the phone and in person. The car was very clean both inside and out. I would definitely recommend and buy from him again.

I have purchased many cars over the years and this purchase from Simon was by far the most satisfying. He is not the typical car salesman and has a friendly honest approach. We spent a lot of time looking over the fine detail of the car that I was to buy without any pressure to make a decision. The car was immaculate . Simon looked after all the paper work and all that was required of me was a few signatures. When I buy another car it will be from Simon Shield Cars Ltd..

- Excellent experience


The car was as described, with nothing left out or missing from the advert. Simon did not try any hard sales technique, allowed me to take my time and make a decision without any of the stereotypical car sales behaviour. I'd happily recommend Simon Shield Cars to anyone looking for a car.

- Happily recommend


A great professional small business. Very welcoming, and warm personality, easy to talk to.

- credit to the used car industry


Simon has truly impressed me with his extremely high level of customer service. Truly exceptional! When a fault light appeared, he drove from Ipswich to London personally to deliver a courtesy car so that his trusted garage can check the fault out.  I would recommend Simon wholeheartedly to anyone. He has a loyal customer for life from me and my friends and family!

- Truly exceptional


Not your average 'wide boy' dealer. A genuine, straight everyday gentleman. I initially emailed with questions, which were honestly answered. When viewing the car, it was EXACTLY as described. We sorted out the trade in and I drove away. That easy! He even posted my sunglasses to me which I left in my old car! Simon Shield only sells quality well presented cars.

The whole business of buying a car from Simon Shield was made very simple and straightforward. Simon, the proprietor, was easy to deal with and explained everything at each stage. He was also instrumental in helping me to sell my old car, which unfortunately he was unable to part exchange. Simon Shield Cars did everything that they said they would do - they have an excellent website too - plenty of information.

- Simple and Straightforward


I have bought many cars during the past sixty years and the recent purchase from Simon was by far the most pleasant experience. He is far from being the typical car sales man and spent much time making sure that I understood all aspects of the excellent car that I eventually purchased.

- 60 years of buying cars


Simon is my local car dealer and I have bought cars from him in the passed. he is very professional , he conducts his business in a very friendly manner and only to pleased to help. I would have no problems with recommending him to anyone. 

- Could Not Expect Better


The vehicle was advertised as being in excellent condition and the photographs and description presented this image. On visiting to complete purchase and collect the vehicle, it was evident the advert on the website was completely accurate in how it described the vehicle. Simon could not have been more helpful. The sale was concluded easily and I drove away a very satisfied customer. No wasted time, no misleading promises. No exaggerated claims. What a pleasure to deal with and I feel rather pleasingly, a motor dealer to be trusted, offering high-quality vehicles

- Trusted dealer - honest straightforward

My wife and I scoured the Internet to purchase a car but not any car, a specific motor to enjoy which had to be a VW EOS for two to enjoy without our children. We looked at several dealers, who advertised on the Internet, but found when the cars were viewed up close that the dealer had not been honest with the facts and even found that the pictures posted online were not a true reflection of the condition of the car. Then we arrived at Simon Shield Cars of Great Bricett, Ipswich in Suffolk and found the car we wanted. It was as stated and advertised, which was a fantastic relief after visiting so many dealers. My wife and I found that Simon guided us through the buying process of our used VW EOS and found it to be unhurried, smooth and with none of the normal rushing and pushing for a sale to be done, but the opposite: a great experience. On returning home and after sometime, our new purchase and much loved used VW EOS had to be serviced by our local VW dealer. The local VW main dealer identified some additional rectification work over and above the standard service. We contacted Simon to inform him of the work that needed to be carried out but did not expect the response we got which was nothing short of fantastic. Simon covered everything that was needed to put the purchase of our used VW EOS 100% right. A great Big Big Thank You Simon for not only guiding us through the purchase of our used VW EOS but for the five star, exceptional and outstanding after care we received from Simon Shield Cars Limited. My wife and I write this testament for all those people thinking of purchasing a used car from the Internet, look no further than Simon Shield Cars Limited to fulfil your every expectation and for 100% piece of mind. A Great Big Thank You. From Mr and Mrs Cotton proud owners of our used VW EOS supplied by Simon Shield Cars Limited and for the five star, exceptional and outstanding after care received.

- 5 star after care


Dear Simon   Many thanks for your help with the purchase of the Mercedes I, (we) am (are) really enjoying it.    

- Many Thanks


Great car at a good price, not pushy and would definitely recommend!

- Great Experience


Buying any used car can often be 'a pig in a poke' especially if the car in question is 16 years old and even though it has 18,000 miles on the clock and a full service history. I was 'downsizing' from a seven seater people carrier to something more economical and town friendly and certainly did not want to spend any more than the sale of the car realised on Ebay. Many years ago, my mother owned a Daihatsu Charade (it looks like the old style Ford Fiesta) and the car just went on and on and on and I had strong and affectionate memories of it. In my internet search for what I thought I wanted, I came across the Charade that Simon was selling. As an old motor industry hand myself, I couldn't believe such a Charade was likely to exist - but it did, and Simon had it up for sale. Okay, it doesn't have aircon and you have to use a key in the door to lock it - but like its forebears, it does what it says on the tin. I collected it yesterday and then had a 160 mile drive home and the more I drove it, the more the memories of Ma's Charade came flooding back. Even the back shelf quietly rattles just as hers did when new and throughout her ownership, but everything else was what I knew the car would be. Plenty of power, comfy seat, handling like a go-kart, 48 to the gallon at a steady 70mph and just plain fun all round. Simon was brilliant in the way he handled the whole thing and even collected me from Needham Market Station in the car so I could test drive it back to his premises to complete the deal. Result - one very happy new owner and someone who can certainly recommend Simon Shield Cars for your next used car. If his stock is as good as the car I bought from him, you won't be disappointed with your preferred buy.

Recently purchased C220 from Simon. Simon is clearly a highly reputable car dealer and uses his expertise and industry connections to select only high quality cars for his customers.

Simon and his wife Caroline were very accommodating when I purchased a car from them recently. They even suggested that I travel up by train to collect the car and they collected me from Needham Market station. They made me feel most welcome at all times and treated me with respect which is what you would expect when you are buying a car. Any questions I had were answered quickly and with experience. I would highly recommend Simon Shield to any of my friends that are considering buying a used car.

Great service throughout. Unsure of which Audi I wanted I was able to test drive multiple cars and finally decide on which I preferred. Good range of cars packed into their forecourt. Friendly and accommodating throughout both Caroline and Simon helped me choose the right vehicle for me. Would definitely recommend.

Having visited several car dealers over the past weeks, I have made contact with the same amount of selling styles! Simon and his wife Caroline are two very personable and genuine people who care about customer satisfaction.

I would have no hesitation in recommending them to friends and would use them again in preference to any other dealer, anywhere!!   5 stars 

- Pleasurable experience


all cars on forecourt were top class    5 stars  

- Great service


We found Simon Shield friendly and efficient. He was knowledgable about the car and its previous owner. He supplied us with full information on the car, and put photos of the service record on line so we could see it was genuine mileage. We would recommend Simon Shield Cars to family and friends. 5 Stars   Reply: thank you so much for your wonderful review and wish you many years of happy driving. Simon & Caroline Shield 

- Friendly, efficient service


  Had bought from this dealer before, so knew how good the service would be!! It was a very easy and pleasant process. Every aspect of the sale was fully explained, including extra warranty on vehicle if needed. I left with the car I wanted, for a good price, full MOT and they even changed the timing belt for me ( just for my peace of mind!!!). Would recommend Simon Shield Cars to anyone who expects a professional service. 10th January 2016 from Autotrader  

- Bought before


  Considering up until I paid Simon Shield Cars a visit, I had lost all (if any) faith in Main Dealerships or any Garage to actually come across that they did have their reputation at stake and cared! Perhaps its because Simon's name is above his door (be strange if it wasn't) but he has a real empathy with his clients and relates to all your concerns and what might suit your needs in relation to choice of car in a genuine way. With the added bonus of a great sense of humour along the way, who could not be impressed enough and comfortable enough with asking almost anything! thanks Simon, Carole Dean 5.0 Breakdown: Customer service: 5.0 Buying process: 5.0 Value for money: 5.0 Recommended: Yes

Bought a car from Simon today, he has some quality cars, no rubbish, and is so helpfull, even made sure that we had enough fuel in the car, can not recommend this garage enough, it has to be the best service we have ever had, when we have purchased a car. If your looking for honesty, reliability and great friendly service, then this is the man to speak to. We would recommend this garage time and time again, and we would be prepared to travel to purchase from Simon again.i can't thank him enough . December 2014

Excellent friendly service with no pressure. Very knowledgeable of the vehicle on sale. Felt very comfortable with the service. Would highly recommend this dealer if you are looking for a quality used car. Helen November 2014  

- Excellent friendly service


Simon always has a nice selection of 'interesting' cars on his forecourt. Over the years I've had my eye on a few, and often they've sold before I've my got act together. This time, I came away with a reasonably priced Volvo XC90, trading in my Ford S-Max. Simon ensured I really wanted/needed a 4x4 before going ahead, and we worked out a reasonable deal. Simon doesn't sell cheap, or rough cars. You should expect interesting cars, well presented and mid range prices. A couple of minor after sales issues were also sorted well. November 2014

- Good honest place to buy a decent used car


I have recently purchased a car from Simon Shield Cars and I was really impressed with the whole experience. My dad first found the car on Autotrader which then lead us to look at the Simon Shield website, which was easy to use and very informative. I had been looking for this specific car for a while and after travelling from Kent to view the car I was certainly not disappointed. Simon was extremely helpful, kind and I feel he really gave me honest advice. He was not at all pushy, and was extremely friendly which immediately put me at ease. I was shown every last detail of the car and was extremely pleased with it. The whole buying process was extremely organised and a very smoothly run process. I would highly recommend. Thank you Simon! Vicky November 2014

- Very happy customer


This is the second car I have purchased from Simon and all I can say is that I will never buy another car from another second hand car dealer as longer as he is trading. This man only deals in quality cars at an honest price and should you have any problems they are dealt with quickly and professionally. If you want a new car look no further you will not be disappointed I promise. Frankie October 2014

- Happy again


I found Simon very friendly and help full, the cars all very clean. He went out of his way to try and get the car ready for me before he went on holiday, and kept me informed at every turn. Although in the end I didn't have the car, I would be glad to purchase from Simon in the future.  And I would recommend Simon to friend and family.  Thank you Simon, Steve. June 2014

We are a small Suffolk charity with a very limited budget. We needed a vehicle to tow a caravan and generally use as a pool car. It had to be something that 'fitted' our rural based activities. I was recommended this dealership both on Twitter and on Facebook by followers who knew we needed a little 'Christmas Kindness'. Simon Shield Cars did not disappoint! Caroline and Simon are friendly, extremely professional and knowledgeable and completely understood and respected our budget and our requirements. They are very particular with the vehicles they offer, taking great care in their selection and making sure they are of a high standard whilst giving great value for money. We chose the perfect one for us, a Freelander in immaculate condition that ticked all the right boxes. They were also very generous in their support of the work we do by making sure that the package they offered came inside our budget. We are delighted with our car and feel that the charity has made a new friend. We have no hesitation in recommending them. December 2013

I bought a car from Simon 9 months ago and founds his level of service exceptional. My technical knowledge of cars is limited, I only really cared about colour and practicality! He gave me no nonsense, non salesy, honest and helpful advice. My Saab estate is reliable, practical, good value for money and it's performance and efficiency is exactly as Simon told me it would be. I would not hesitate to recommend Simon Shield Cars to would-be car purchasers.

- Sophie Grimes


I knew the car I wanted and found one in stock with Simon Shield. Living a long distance away, I relied upon the opinion, description and advice provided by Simon, all of which was 100% correct. The car was exactly as described when I saw it 'in the flesh' for the first time (to collect it!) and has exceeded all expectations. The whole buying process and transaction was carried out in a timely and professional manner. I would recommend Simon Shield Cars Ltd without hesitation.

Just a short post here to thank Simon Shield for spending a lot of his time advising me and my wife on a possible car purchase today. We've been umming and ahhing over replacing the main family car this year and this morning we went to take a look at one that could well be what we replaced it with. In the end we've decided to stick with the one we have (and spend some money fixing a few things). But we're only able to make that decision based on the expert advice of someone who stood to benefit from persuading us to buy a new vehicle from him. He didn't actually advise us not to buy a car from him of course, but he was clearly being very honest in his assessment of our existing vehicle, what it needed doing to it, what it was worth if we didn't spend that money and so on. Come the time when we do decide to buy a new car, I'd be happy to buy it from Simon Shield Cars.

I was initially attracted to SSC through the Autotrader advert as well as the accompanying video presentation of the vehicle. Upon inspection, it was certainly a case of 'words and figures' adding up! The car was exactly as described. Although the Jeep was my principal interest, Simon had readied a similar vehicle for comparison which was well judged and helped me to make my decision. There was no issues with the 3 test drives that I took, Simon was prompt and his vehicle knowledge was excellent. On the odd occasion that he was unsure, he quickly provided clarity from reference to relevant records and was very attentive throughout. A broad view of SSC's forecourt evidenced a quality selection of used vehicles, all with relevant accompanying history. I would not hesitate to recommend SSC to any prospective buyer.
