Welcome to John Danby Car Sales. We are a small but dedicated family business in Horncastle, Lincolnshire
John Danby has been selling cars in and around Horncastle for over 40 years. Prior to this he was employed as a mechanic at L.Turner & Son in Mareham Le Fen which was then part of the Roots Group. Jack Danby has been selling cars for 15 years. Before setting up in business with his father, Jack worked as a mechanic at a local Porsche restoration specialist, Gantspeed Engineering also in Mareham-Le-Fen. Johns wife and Jacks mother, Janice, also works within the business doing a lot of the accounts and helping with valeting.
As John and Janice start to take things a little easier and enjoy some well-earned time away from the garage, Gavin Angood has started working with us 3 days per week. Gavin has been selling cars for 30 years spending his whole career at Cropleys Suzuki in Boston until he sold the business with his fellow directors in early 2022. Gavin is local, having gone to school in Horncastle, and has been trading with John and Jack for many years. Cropleys were an award-winning dealership for customer service so Gavin’s values will slot in with ours seamlessly.
We specialise in selling quality low mileage cars ranging from £4000 to £25000. Every car we sell is checked on Experian Autocheck and includes at least 6 months MOT. Many of our cars have the balance of the manufacturer’s warranty but, where this does not apply, we give our own warranty which varies depending on the age and price range of the car.
We recognise that most of our sales come from both repeat customers and word of mouth so it is important to us to only sell quality cars and to provide the best service we can. We are very proud of our reputation and of the reviews that customers leave for us, please view our Testimonials page.
We do not employ pushy sales staff who are only interested in this months sales figures, It is just the four of us. We try to give genuine advice and find that this means the customer drives away happy resulting in more repeat business and positive referrals.
All our cars are fully prepared before they are sold. Most of the cosmetic preparation is done on site and the mechanical/MOT work is carried out by three trusted local garages.
Many of our cars are displayed on our website but it is always worth giving us a call to see what else we may have due to arrive. We do also source cars for customers and have access to thousands of vehicles every day.
