We are pleased to welcome Harts of Honiton, who will be sponsoring our new Motors section with regular content including ‘Car of the Week’ and other high-quality motor articles. This will be in addition to regular articles from Ginny Buckley, the first female motoring editor of a national newspaper and former Sky News anchor.

Why you should go to Harts of Honiton

Whether you’re buying or selling, it’s important to go to a reputable, trustworthy dealer. Many people in Honiton will be familiar with Harts, on the road towards Stockland; it’s been run by the same company for 36 years, owned and managed by Richard Hooper. Both the sales manager, Graham Jackson, and the service manager, Robin Clapp, have been there for more than 30 years. Between them, they’ve built up long-standing relationships with many people in Honiton. There are certainly local families where the parents have bought cars from Harts, followed by their children when they pass their driving tests.

‘People become our customers for life’

Harts started out as an Austin Rover dealership in 1985. Thirteen years later it changed over to Renault, and has continued with them for 24 years. Harts changed to a Renault Service Dealer in 2013 and now offers used cars only, along with a high-quality aftersales service.

Richard said: “We like to retain our customers through offering a first class service, whether buying a car or having it serviced, repaired or MOT tested.

“We try to go to the ‘extra mile’ to make sure the customer has a top-drawer experience. Our staff have expert knowledge and many years' experience to advise our customers on the best solutions for their individual requirements."

‘We want to buy your used car’

The dealership likes to have a good selection available, ranging in price from £4,000 to around £20,000, many of which are Renault or Dacia, but there is also a good range of cars from other manufacturers.

With the current shortage in the new car supply across all manufacturers, Harts have experienced exceptional demand for their quality used cars and right now their priority is to replenish their stock of used cars. So if you are thinking of selling your car, this is a great time to do it.

The company is currently offering to buy any car up to 10 years old with up to 100,000 miles on the clock. Harts of Honiton promises to offer the seller a quote straight away and arrange an immediate bank transfer.

As a company with a wealth of experience in the motor trade and a loyal local customer base, Harts of Honiton was the ideal sponsor for our Motors section, and we’re very pleased to welcome them on board.

Nub News CEO Karl Hancock said: “It is great to have such a well-established company as Harts as a partner in Honiton. Without community-minded sponsors like them we wouldn’t be able to provide our readers with the hyper-local community news they deserve."
