Lancaster at slough, any good?

Hi,
has anyone bought from them recently and what do you think of them Question

Looking at a couple of different options Whistle

and never bought a car from far away,
they have 1 we are tempted by but like to go and have a look before committing to buy Confused
Where they fair with a p/ex price and how did they prep the car?

any feedback welcome or it could be a long day out to look

Not bought from them but hear nothing good about them locally.
Not the largest of locations and over crowded with vehicles.

One of my clients who is not short of funds, got right messed around by them when his LR was booked for service and technician test drive. After moving back here from Isle of Man, and seeking a dealer to trust. Kept him waiting just over two hours. When he tried to get sense they did not care too much, so he said his thank you for not a lot of help and moved on. Subsequently replaced it with a Porsche, gets better service although obviously more for it!

So if you are buying remotely, might be better avoided, sorry for disappointment.

Cant help re sales, but I get parts from them. I ordered a £6 pound O ring from them which they got in, after telling me it had arrived I went to collect it but they had lost it. They ordered a replacement and sent a driver to my house the next morning.
The cost to them was an hour to look for it and another for a driver.

Hi,
thanks both Thumbs Up

He went for a Porsche you say Whistle better service

there does seem to be a difference between "sales" and "service" depts at stealers Rolling Eyes

we get great service from Duckworths and excellence from parts (Dan) at Duckworths
but their sales team have never kept in touch with us even after having discussions about ex-demo cars when available Confused

"Sales" at Lancaster have not been back in touch yet from Thursday Exclamation so its not looking good Rolling Eyes

I think he suggests that the service he receives is totally opposite to LR. However they know how to charge for it!

STAY FAR AWAY from that place!!
bunch of incompetent, lying mofos too much up their posh suit asses to notice anything, take anything into consideration and learn from their own stupid mistakes treating most customers as thick retars who have enough money to buy LR product but zero brain to comprehend how they work apart beig Censored able to start the engine

If you after good service in Slough area I would recommned Barnside Motors in Cookham

not impresive looks but job well done and cheap

if its on the approved LR sales pages for the Slough dealer then they should be able to move the car to Duckworths for you for a minimal returnable deposit.

have you spoken to Duckworth sales team to see if thats possible ?

Hi Rogb,
I thought that dealers could only move cars between their own group Question

Duckworths stand alone as far as I know Mkt Rasen and Boston.

The car we were interested in is currently Lancaster Sloughs demo RRS not available until 18 Oct
It was left with the sales guy to confirm:-
what we wanted for our p/ex, adding a removable towbar and using Whistle the £3k contribution Question
Two weeks later and we have still not heard from them Rolling Eyes

Although things have moved on a bit from our side now Whistle Cool Whistle
