Ashtons has been established for over 28 years and throughout this time we have gained a reputation for specialising in the sales of high quality sports, prestige and four wheel drive vehicles.

We have a dedicated buying team and firmly believe that a vehicle should be valued on its merits and more importantly specification, rather than what a computer tells you what your car is worth which is how many of the internet car buying companies work. Each car is individual and therefore should be treated with a personal valuation rather than a percentage of a guide price that may not take into account many different aspects of your car.

We make selling your car to us extremely straightforward, you can either call us to discuss the car you’d like to sell or you can fill out the form here and we will contact you.

Once we have a mutual agreement in place to purchase your car you can either drop the car to us and we can make an instant bank transfer or we can come to you to collect the vehicle, again making an instant bank transfer. Should you have any outstanding finance on your vehicle we can arrange payment to the finance company so that you don’t have to. It really is as simple as that. Quite often, if you are replacing your current car you can be in a much better negotiating position when buying your next car with no part exchange involved.

Toby joined Ashtons in 1995 and started off as a valeter which gave him a terrific insight into what to look for in a car. After a few years Toby progressed into sales and has always enjoyed meeting new people and helping them with their car purchase. Toby is now a director and has been a buyer for Ashtons for a number of years, specialising in purchasing our four wheel drive stock. Toby spends most of his time on the road travelling around the South West sourcing high quality vehicles that we, ourselves, would be happy to own.


Nick began his life in the motor trade at 21 years of age where he worked for a company called National Vehicle Reserve which specialised in the wholesale of motor vehicles. After 3 years he then moved on to work as a used car controller and buyer for the Bateman Group in the Lake District. Two years later, in 1992 he returned to Devon and co-founded Ashtons. Nick specialises in purchasing sports and prestige vehicles due to his wealth of experience and knowledge in this market which enables Ashtons to source high quality vehicles throughout the country.
