'It was really easy and straight forward, Dan made the purchase very easy and straight forward. We would recommend Esplanade and certainly be a returning customer. Couldn’t fault Esplanade for the attention to detail. Car was pristine when I collected it and the flowers were a lovely touch thank you.'

'Fantastic service from start to finish. Dan Lacey is a credit to the company and made the process seamless and enjoyable. I am thrilled with my new car and be recommending Esplanade to my friends and family.'

- Tom Buchanan, 9th May 2021

'Sales process - This was the second time we have bought a car from Matt (fourth car from Esplanade). He is an absolute pleasure to deal with, very personable and clearly knows his way around electrical vehicles. Matt was always quick to reply competently and highly professional throughout. Same can be said about Will who as usual was extremely efficient in seeing the transaction though, despite the pandemic. Couldn’t praise the two highly enough and am happy to provide a testimony for Esplanade, if it ever comes useful.
 
The ID.3 - The whole family LOVES this car, best one we ever had. The future is definitely electric and for us there is no turning back, so much more fun to drive. Also works a treat with our charging station at home that works in combination with the solar panels and is extremely economical. For the island, where we all do short journeys only, this is ideal. Some minor software issues at the beginning, but I guess that is to be expected as an early adaptor. The only regret I have is not to opt for a higher spec model. We will be keeping an eye out for the new ID.4, looks promising, if there are any good deals coming up, once we have moved past the 1st edition, let me know.'

Where do I start? From start to finish the service was great all the way. As a Motability Customer the service was very much Person centered including when I needed to call for updates and the team supporting Matt was also great I did come from the mainland to purchase my car from Derbyshire in the East Midlands

"Was really impressed with Matthew and his care. Came just on the lookout for a new car and Matthew listened to what I wanted and managed to get me a fantastic deal allowing me to upgrade my polo. He kept me up to date throughout with the process and the whole transaction was smooth. By far one of the most smoothest I have had buying a car. Would definitely use Esplanade again when changing vehicles!"

- Tom Marsden 

"Great welcoming, great value. Very helpful and polite staff. Made me feel very welcome every visit and I thought the service Dominic Rann made was very professional and high standard and makes a fantastic asset to Esplanade Garage. When I picked up the car I was handed not just the keys but a massive bouquet of chocolates which I was not expecting 😃 fantastic company. I highly recommend this company."

- Jamie Hindson

"Mark Lovett was exceptional. Courteous, professional but most of all, he went the extra mile to help me."

“Had a problem with a fault light showing on my dash whilst on holiday. Phoned Esplanade car dealers in Newport, Isle of Wight who said to bring it in immediately (that was a shock for a start). They provided us with a courtesy car, and having checked mine, they phoned the same afternoon to say it was an error and they'd corrected it. However, they found a leaking shock absorber and said they could get the part and fix next day! True to their word, we received a phone call around lunchtime to say the car was ready for collection and there was no charge as still under 3year warranty. I think the service and staff are fantastic. Never been treated so well or so quickly before. Would recommend them to everyone.”

- Christine Giblin (Facebook Recommendation)

“From beginning to end I had the best service I’ve ever received and I've been to a lot of garages. I had a huge amount of work done on my r32, completed within 5 days with a brilliant courtesy car to borrow. Matt on service made me feel at ease with the bill and arranged everything perfectly, Mike Trigg the mechanic kept me up to date daily with pictures, always on hand to answer every question. A real personal professional and quick service.”

- Carl Deakin (Facebook Recommendation)

"I have to say I was truly blown away by the customer services levels at Esplanade. I finally bought the little car I'd been wanting for 20 years - a Beetle Cabriolet. Daniel and the rest of the staff had my car ready early so I had it for this weekend! Despite the rainy day when picked it up, the whole experience was very special. I felt valued and I know my car will be well looked after. It was just fantastic and I'm chuffed to bits, thank you everyone. Good old fashioned customer goes a very long way on the IOW. Who knows, I might be able to convince my Dad to come and buy a Mercedes here next year!"

- Stephanie Rogers (Facebook Recommendation)

“This is the first time I have been able to take advantage of the collection/delivery service which worked like clockwork. The freebie wash and vacuum made it a very lazy day for me. Thanks Esplanade!”

- Mark Wheeler

“Fantastic service to get me back on the road & over to the mainland following a failed MOT. Assume car wasn't cleaned due to my hurry? So grateful to all your staff for all their hard work, especially those behind the scenes for making what seemed like a disaster into a tolerable situation.”

- Shirley Illsley

“Very happy with the service I received. All the staff I dealt with were very friendly and professional. My car was dealt with very quickly and was returned to me lovely and clean.”

After having Skoda cars over many years we went to Esplanade Garage and met Simon Daniels who we found to be very helpful, he wasn’t pushy and spent a lot of time with us. We decided to purchase a Polo golf which we are delighted with. All thanks to Simon Daniels.
