Checkpoint really does check out positively

I’ve bought many cars over the years and had good and bad experiences but I have to say the experience with Checkpoint will stand out above them all Dealt with W in sales who is a very pleasant guy and nothing was too much trouble. On the day of collection of my X1 there was something I noticed not to my liking. Again not an issue for M the service manager. A courtesy car was provided and the work was undertaken. Both my wife and I are very pleased with the car and service provided. Definitely will return to Checkpoint for our next car.

Checkpoint cars llay….. I Recently purchased a nissan duke from checkpoint cars. The customer care and service I experienced was second to none. No pressure salesmanship, just kindness and concern about my needs. ten out of ten………..good staff,good car, and a very good cup of tea. Jane Dicken.


So good I have returned to buy another car.

Pleasant friendly visit. No pressure sales, just at hand to offer advice and wanting to help. After sales care is great and warranty is ideal. Sales staff remembered my previous visit 9 years earlier. I would highly recommend a visit.


Excellent and knowledgeable service

Really helpful staff, with genuine knowledge and enthusiasm about their cars. Excellent coronavirus procedures in place.

Excellent service and value!

We have just bought a used Isuzu Dmax from here. I have been searching for a vehicle for several weeks when I came across this one local to me. They have a great choice of vehicles on offer and having looked for a while, this one was great value! Given the current situation, Checkpoint have taken extra precautions to ensure they have adhered to COVID-19 guidelines. The car (and key) are wiped down, social distancing measures are in place, hand sanitiser is readily available for customers and everything was contact free! As a business customer, we can foresee a great future relationship with Checkpoint in maintaining (and when the time comes) renewing our Isuzu. Top service from the general manager and service manager!

Great Service and COVID-19 Precautions!

Just picked up my BMW640D which had the pick up delayed due to the lockdown. The service we had from The General Manger and the Sales Executive was first class and the it was the first time I have had dealings with a used car dealer where I developed full trust in what they told me! They have great COVID-19 precautions in place so I felt perfectly at ease during the pick up process. Totally recommended. So Much so that we also purchased a Mini Clubman at the same time!

By Chris B

Great experience from start to finish

Salesman was extremely friendly and helpful, kept me updated all the way through the process, the car was cleaned and sanitised before collection. All paperwork was done behind a perspex screen as part of covid measures and I felt really comfortable. I would highly recommend checkpoint for your next car. Thanks guys

Wonderful customer service and fab vehicles

Wow, excellent customer service from Nick at Checkpoint cars. Very responsive to queries, informative, thorough replies!! Bothered to follow up with me when he hadn’t heard from me in a few days (that sealed the deal). Covid19 regulations exceptional, recognised we had a young baby and went above and beyond to keep everyone safe. Less than an hour after arriving, test drive done, paperwork signed and I was on my way, thanks to Nick having the foresight to prepare the car prior to my arrival. The car itself is immaculate, well maintained as described, serviced and valeted as promised. Made the sometimes stressful task of buying a car (especially with a tiny baby in tow!) very easy and smooth. 6 months warranty gives me the reassurance we need from a family car too. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend, worth driving the distance for! Thanks again.


Friendly and professional

Very professional, friendly and helpful. Despite Coronavirus we felt secure we were safe with the screens in place and attention to sanitisation. We were not pressurised at all and decided to buy.

Checkpoint Make Buying A Car A Great Experience

Buying a car is exciting but it can also be daunting, especially during Covid-19. I cannot praise Checkpoint Cars enough for how they made the whole process of purchasing the best car I’ve had to date. They had strict but very friendly Covid-19 restrictions in place and this really helped. They have thought about everything and a lovely touch were the WhatsApp videos which replaced the walk around the car so I could play the videos back in my own time to discover the cool features of my car. A big thank you to the General Manager for everything, he made me feel so welcome and I will not hesitate to go back to Checkpoint next time.

By phil N


Just want to say a SUPER big thank you to Nick and the rest of the Checkpoint team for making the whole process of purchasing a car so easy. I am not local to the dealership so Nick made sure I had every bit of information I needed to make the right decision. Many phone calls, texts and videos later, I was all set. Nothing I asked from Nick (and I had lots of questions) was too much trouble and was he always happy to help right up and till the moment we left the showroom. Could not recommend them enough and will be purchasing my next car from him- regardless of the distance. I would give more than 5 stars if I could!!!

By camille P

We will be back!

Super friendly staff! Will be back when it’s time for an upgrade! Thank you

Brilliant service with a smile.

The owner has been nothing but lovely while dealing with the sale of my new car! He has been happy and helpful since the first day I walked through the door.


Excellent service

The team were great- really responsive and helpful over email and phone. Great service for the test drive and buying process. Went above and beyond to ensure everything was clear and to meet my timelines. Would highly recommend using them- I’ll certainly be going back for by MOT and services in the future.

By lindsay M

Amazing Service!

xcellent service from NM at what must have been a difficult time for dealerships, he made the effort to come in on his day off on short notice for us to see the car we ended up buying, the test drive was already prepared before we walked through the door and social distancing was spot on. We also had more question’s after buying the car and NM was back to us straight away he also filmed a full walk through of the car so we felt comfortable from the get go, we would recommend checkpoint and would always look there first if we needed a new car. Thanks again!


Honest garage, we even travelled 360 miles.

Very helpful garage we travelled 360 mile round trip to pick the car up and the car was as advertised so my wife was happy we would deal again.

I only popped up to see a car advertised in the local paper and bought it right away the sales man Todd Crichton went out of his way to make my purchase so easy and showed me every part of my new car which I love.

Checkpoint: a good buying experience

I found Checkpoint a good experience overall. There was no high pressure sales pitch – I was left to wander around the site and as I am 6 feet 4 inches tall and 17 stone tried many of the cars they had on offer to find one that I fitted without crucifying the rear accommodation which needs to be accessed by elderly and infirm relatives. They had a good selection of quality cars(BMW/Audi/VW/Mercedes,etc) on offer and I was interested in a Mini Countryman they had which fitted my criteria and had a good history. Negotiations took place and after a fair haggle a deal was reached including a good “price to change” against my trade-in vehicle. I am happy with my new car and would certainly be a return customer to Checkpoint.

By Peter C on 31 Mar 17 | VERIFIED PURCHASE

Made buying a car a pleasant experience.

Made you feel welcome, would recommend them as a garage to buy a new/s/h car. Had a minor issue with the,but quickly sorted. Garage was bright and cheerful and the staff were very friendly and helpful. All paperwork was quickly and efficiently deal with. Also offered to deliver the vehicle.

Great sales staff, great customer service

The salesman I dealt with was very very helpful and knowledgeable about the BMW X1 I was interested in, the communication was excellent, as far as to say I am now the owner of said BMW X1, The price was very competitive, and the px price was slightly above the book price which swung the deal for me , I would recommend anyone have a chat with the staff at checkpoint, even if they have not got the car you want, they have a network with other garages far and wide, and will endeavour to find the car you require, just wanted to say thank you for your help.

5 star customer service!

I can’t name names but the man I bought my car from was excellent! He wasn’t pushy, he was just polite and honest. Everything I wanted looking at or changing he was able to get done with no bother, thanks to himself and his team – he even helped me sort out some documents for my old car which I was selling privately. They all looked after me and gave the best customer service, in a couple of years I will be more than happy to buy another car from them as I know I can trust them.

Very impressed!

I recently purchased a vehicle from Checkpoint Garage in Llay and having visited several garages over the last few weeks, both independent and main dealerships, I have to say that I found the experience quite refreshing. Throughout the sale I found them to be at all times professional in there approach and timely in their responses. The car was fully serviced, came with a ‘proper’ warranty and had been beautifully prepped when we took delivery. Excellent service, would not hesitate buying another vehicle from them in the future.

My experience with Newhall was fantastic, we had a few phone calls backwards and forwards but I found them to be very efficient. I was happy with the price they gave me for my Ford Mustang GT. They paid the money into my bank straight away and even made sure I could make it home safe by dropping me at the local train station.

Quality cars/ Quality experience.

I have been a very satisfied Customer with this company for some 10 years, purchasing 3 vehicles to date. Having traded with some of the ‘ Bigger names’, resulting in negative experiences, I would never even consider moving from Newhall. The ‘sales end’ from Keith is second to non and Simon, at the ‘service end’ is just as good. Being a female who has managed her own car purchases etc for 30 years +, it has been a total breathe of fresh air, not to be patronised. O.K, you will not find cheap ‘ run of the mill’ cars, but if you want a quality car, with a quality experience, Newhall is the place to be. Go for it girls!!!!

Newhall West Kirby were a pleasure to deal with during the purchase of a new company vehicle. Every detail no matter how big or small was completed prior to the vehicle being delivered and we were updated regularly.

By Dawn P on 22 Dec 17

A painless process

I travelled a couple of hours to view a used Volvo C70 and was pleasantly surprised to find the car was exactly as described in the Autotrader ad. I agreed a deal on the day of my visit, left a deposit and asked the guys to register the car in my name and put on a personal plate for me. This was done without any fuss by Wayne and the team and, given the distance I had to travel, I was put under no real pressure to come and pay the balance and take the car away. When I did eventually get across, I was collected from the railway station and taken to the showroom to be given a thorough handover. The car was obviously well prepared and a full documentation pack was in the vehicle. I have owned the car for around three months now running up about three thousand miles without a problem. I did notice I was short of a bill for servicing prior to my ownership but a call to Wayne resulted in him managing to chase down a copy for me. All in all, a good buying experience from a bunch of nice guys.

By David H on 11 Jan 18

Highly recommend

I have just bought my second car from Newhall. The car I went to see was immaculate. I was offered a test drive & all the controls where explained to me as I had not driven an automatic car before .

I would recommend Newhall to everyone , they even went the extra mile to get my private plate on for collection .

Professional, polite, knowledgeable and efficient

All businesses should be like this to deal with. Living in the southeast I am a good 6 hour drive from Checkpoint, therefore I couldn’t view or test drive the car. Fantastic from the outset. Nothing was too much trouble. All information was sent on time and just as promised. I secured the car with a small deposit on the phone ahead of travelling to Chester by train to make the purchase (a deposit plus finance). Finance was arranged ahead of my arrival so it was all set up and sorted for peace of mind. They also fully serviced the car ahead of my arrival without question. On the day I arrived to collect the car I was picked up from the station. It was totally as described, immaculately presented and in fantastic condition throughout as listed. My whole experience of working with Checkpoint was a pleasure, as was the car. I highly recommend Checkpoint and will happily make the journey back to use their custom again in the future. First Class.

Brilliant experience

I saw the car I was interested in online , I did my research & the car was priced fairly. When I made the initial enquiry I spoke to Nick who answered all my questions about the vehicles condition, service & ownership history & because I am about an hour from the business he offered to do a walk about video for me , highlighting the overall condition. When I committed to travel to view the car – I was able to secure the car with a small deposit which Nick assured me was fully refundable should for any reason when I view, drive, inspect the car/documents I decide “it’s not for me”. I travelled the hour – was greeted promptly & left with the car to inspect it at my leisure … no pressure. I did purchase the car & was delighted with the way I was dealt with from start to finish, the car was also supplied with a comprehensive warranty. I would definitely recommend these guys.
