As always fist class service from a knowledgeable and helpful team, dealt with SSC on many occasions and will definitely do so again!!
Exemplary service from start to finish!!
From the moment you walk in til the minute you leave with your new car (in my case a Rolls Royce Ghost) - the service is exemplary. In fact it is as good as any Bentley or Rolls Royce garage I have visited. Damon was superb and arranged all of the deal including transferring our private plate etc. Met the owner who was more than helpful. This is my best experience of buying a car - and at £100k+ it is important to feel safe and in the hands of professionals. I cannot recommend highly enough.
First Class professional attention from start to finish.....Would thoroughly recommend dealing with Shak and his team.
A fab car and great service!
I purchased an Audi S4 Avant from Shaks in Jan-16. Firstly, the car: seriously impressed with my purchase. The condition it's in is second-to-none - almost as new (and it's 4 years old). A fantastic choice. Shaks clearly know how to source a decent car. Secondly, customer service: the staff were really helpful - they picked me up from Huddersfield rail station and took me to the showroom, were helpful with the paperwork and made the effort to show me how to set up things in the car (sat navigation, phone calling). And Shak made the time to introduce himself to me and ask about my purchase. Overall a great customer experience.
Great customer care friendly staff fair deal, magnificent showroom with some rare and beautiful cars blows my local specialist car dealers Romans out the water and that's not easy, Made a long trip from Surrey well worth it even sent me packing with a full tank!
Fantastic service at this place, very accommodating and always feel confident my car is looked after.
Happy to agree what work needs doing & agree a price (ohhh they make a lovely coffee while you wait too :) )
Bought my A45 today fantastic service start to finish
Thank you guys. A pleasure to do business with. Straight forward espesially roxy.
Well done guys. Great car.
We brought a white Q7 from SSC last Friday. The car was beautiful and reasonably priced. Urfi and Mr Shaks looked after us well and refurbished the interior how we like it. We will definitely go back there for our next car purchase, also because they have a very prestigious car collection. smile emoticon
If Carlsberg sold cars ....
Great price of purchase, and great p/ex price of my car. Definitely the best car buying experience that I have had, made all the better by Roxanne and the 2 Shak's. I would have no hesitation in recommending SSC to anyone in the market for a keenly priced car, backed up by a customer service and experience that is second to none. This is my first experience and car from SSC .... I know it wont be the last !
Just a quick email to thank you guys so much for the perfect professional service you provided during my recent acquisition of my fantastic Range Rover.
I've always been wary of car salesmen, often with good reason, but you've helped to redefine the stereotype. Thank you so much for answering all of my questions honestly, and making that five hour process not as painful as it otherwise could have been.
I'm happy with the Jaguar I purchased, and I'm not freaking out about the purchase price. That's a pretty ideal situation when it comes to buying a new car, and it's all thanks to yourself and Damon.
You can be sure that if I have any friends looking to buy new cars in the future, I'll be sending them to Shaks Specialist Cars in Huddersfield and telling them to ask for Shak or any member of his dedicated team. I am the Elite of few people in my field, specialist in looking after Presidents, Diplomats all around the world.
The car purchased from your garage has all the needs to fit the Elite category.
Dear Shak & Team,
Just a quick email to thank you guys so much for the perfect professional service you provided during my recent acquisition of my fantastic Range Rover.
I was very impressed when you offered to bring the car to me at work to view it ,i am a very busy man so this was an extremely helpful indeed.
The part ex offer you gave was generous and as expected and on the day of collection my Range Rover was presented beautifully valeted and ready to go with minimal paperwork fuss.
Thank you Shak for going through all the aspects of the vehicle and setting up the tracking system at point of handover,your entire operation was professional from start to finish and even main dealers could learn a thing or two from you and your approach to total customer satisfaction.
I will be highly recommending you to everybody I know.
Just a quick thank you for putting together the deal on my recent purchase. The GTR seems perfect and exactly what I have been looking for. It makes a change for a dealer to respond to enquiries so quickly and even responding out of working hours, many times in the past I've been left wondering if some dealers actually want to sell these cars, even dealers selling premium brands.
Anyway thanks again, I won't hesitate to come back to your dealership and would happily recommend you to any of my friends.
Thank you very much for replying and thank you for letting me look round your showroom and take pictures. I enjoyed it a lot and you have some fantastic cars in and great staff.
Hi Adam and Shak,
I just like to say a Big thanks for making my car buying experience so pleasurable. From the time I picked up the phone to the time I drove out the showroom I was made to feel like I was buying a Bugatti Veyron not a BMW 640d! The car is everything you'd said it would be. I usually have a change every year and hopefully you'll have found my next oneÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦..whatever it may be!
Please also, pass on my thanks to Roxanne who managed to make the paperwork look almost transparent!
All the best and thank you again
Dear Shak & Adam
Family all love the car, both sons love all the pics of the sooooooooper cars. I work with a lot of guys who earn decent wages, I will be mentioning the experience to them, by that I mean customer service/lack of pressure/cracking premises/fantastic stock holding etc etc hopefully one or more may enquire after some of your cars.
Dear Shak & Adam
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the excellent service you provided from start to finish in the recent acquisition of my M3. From my first discussion with Adam to meeting you both when I collected the car, every part of your service was perfect. I was, naturally apprehensive about buying a car I hadn't even seen pictures of but the car not only meets my expectations but exceeds them. The friendly, efficient and honest approach that the team at Shaks provided made the experience of dealing with everything from the south coast incredible simple. Arnela's efficient finance work and Adam staying late to facetime me were really appreciated too.
The process of collecting the car was also very easy and made all the better by the friendly nature of the staff, from Martin first greeting me, showing me round the whole garage and taking me for a test drive to Roxy completing the finance paperwork and then Mo explaining some of the features of the car before I left. It was so refreshing to deal with genuine "car people" who had enthusiasm and interest in the cars they were selling and didn't just see them as a job. At no point did I feel pressured into proceeding with the purchase and your team were very keen that I was completely satisfied and happy before signing anything.
If only all garages were the same!
I have already recommended you to a friend from here and look forward to dealing with you again.
All the best and thank you again
Just bought a car from Shaks for the second time after the excellent service I received last time.Once again I wasn't disappointed. There are not enough words to describe the courteous, helpful, and above all knowledgeable staff.
The showroom is a joy to visit and the staff are happy to guide the customers without being pushy and intimidating.
They show great attention to detail and are always efficient in dealing with any queries.
I would not hesitate to recommend them.
I'd like to say a massive thank you for the car and the service I received. I had been looking at the Subaru online for a couple of weeks. Adam guided me through every step of the way and the car was as described perfectly. I felt I was treated the same as someone that was buying a 200k Lamborghini I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shak's specialist cars to my friends and family!!! Thanks again.
Just want to say a big thank you to Shaks Specialist Cars for sorting me out with my Bentley continental super sport. Adam was unreal he made the whole sale perfect from start to finish. Everything ran so smooth and I got a real buzz going into the showroom as the quality of cars in stock was out of this planet! Everyone made me feel really welcome and will be recommending friends and family.
Guys, Just wanted to say a massive thanks for all Your help today & for going that extra mile when we noticed a nail in tyre! It was A five hour drive back down south but in an absolutely stunning Mercedes GLE AMG... wow, WHAT a car which I have to say was equaled by your service! Thanks again guys, keep it up & I'll definitely be back!!! Cheers, Wayne.
Thank you for your time today, fantastic dealership and approach to doing business.
Thank you for your help, and making it happen. I love the car! I will be coming back in the summer to get something faster!
Good Afternoon Adam,
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you for helping me get the car of my dreams. You made the whole experience enjoyable and super easy and will definitely be returning in the future!!
All the best,
I just wanted to thank you for looking after us during our recent purchase.
The Range Rover is fantastic and we were pleased with how easy you made the part exchange and number plate transfer.
We will definitely be back next time it is time to change cars.
Further to our meeting last week and subsequent purchase of the above car I just wanted to put down a few words of how delighted we are with you and your team.
Within 48 hours of meeting we had finance in place, the car serviced at Bentley main dealership, two new rear tyres placed upon the car, paperwork complete and drove off into the sunset, wow!
Shak, yourself Mo and the rest of your team were highly approachable, friendly and totally removed any pomp and over the top snobbery which you usually encounter at high end dealers. I have previously bought a Bentley and a Ferrari, but have never come across a more organised, professional, amiable and friendly team as yours.
I have no hesitation in recommending your dealership to anybody who wants the best that Supercars have to offer at a great price, coupled with superb customer service.
5* service at SSC with Adam
My purchase at SSC in Huddersfield was like a dream come true after buying my dream car.
I never thought it would go as smooth as it did and can only thank Adam and all the sales staff at SSC for their professional approach and helping me convert my dream into reality.
Will definitely be using SSC in the future and 110% recommend to anyone else out there looking to buy their dream car.
Once again thanks guys :)
Hi Shak and The Team, I just wanted to say Thanks for your service and the new car, AZZ was great and very helpful and from seeing the car to driving away in less than a week with everything done was great and made to feel welcome and valued. Shona kept me in the loop at all times with the finance and would certainly recommend yourselves.
Steve H. Managing Director Red Chilli Audio
I've bought a number of cars over the years and Shaks Specialist Cars is without doubt the most pleasant car buying experience I've had. I recently enquired about a car I'd seen online with the hope of finding a great car and getting a good deal on doing a part ex on my car at the time. After enquiring Adam got in touch without delay and a couple of days later I had arranged to meet Adam for a test drive. The car was superb, we went for a thorough test drive and sat down to look at my options. There was no pushiness in terms of the sale, just an honest conversation and the deal was done there and then. Follow up service was first class and in no time at all I was the proud owner of a new car. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Adam and the wider team at SSC.
My colleague and I travelled up from london to view an Aston Martin after weeks of discussions with Mo of Shaks Specialist Cars on the condition and history of the car. We found the car to be very much as described and purchased the vehicle and drove the Aston DB9 back to London, We would like to thank SSC for their hospitality during our visit and would recommend them as a sincere and professional operation and thank them for their help during my purchase of the vehicle.
Just thought I would send you a quick line to show my appreciation to you and your team for the very professional way that you conduct yourselves. I am very impressed by the way I was treated form the first enquiry I made for the range rover sport to the signing of the documents and receiving the keys. I can honestly say that you have got a customer for life. Hope the new premises go well for you all.
Many many thanks
Great dealership and thanks to Mo for sorting out the little things that other dealerships I've experienced in the past made it much more hard work to get done. Very professional service from Mo throughout, a top guy.
Made the whole experience of buying the S3 much more pleasurable and when it comes round to chopping in the new toy, SSC will be top of the list when searching. I'll certainly recommend Shaks when anyone is looking for a decent motor.
Thank you so much for organising the delivery of the car. It's absolutely fab and I love it!!!
Can't believe how much they have advanced. Thoroughly enjoyed my commute this am.
Would like to thank Adam at Shaks Specialist Cars for finding me my M5. At first I was interested in a M5 but the mileage was too high so he said leave it with me, a day later he had found the perfect car fully loaded with low mileage! He even showed me around there new premises which will be ready really soon and it's impressive! I would recommend to all my family and friends to buy a car from this company and look forward to returning in future.
The Davies Family
Geraldine and myself would firstly like to say thanks to you personally for taking the edge off buying a new motor, you made us feel so relaxed with your salesmanship and your no-pressure related sales nonsense made the 2 hour drive down from Newcastle worthwhile. Secondly, Thankyou to all your staff in the Birkby Showroom for the making us feel welcome and at ease throughout the sale of the Geraldine's Range-rover sport (KAHN styling) which she is still shaking from the excitement of owning. The drive back up to Newcastle after the sales was an absolute pleasure, we know how much time/ effort was put into to meet Geraldine's requirements.
On that note I have to thankyou for making her dreams come true, I have been passing on the experience of SHAKS Motors and recommending you to all of our friends, family and just anyone who takes an interest. You will definitely be seeing us again I can guarantee you that, I'll bring the RS4 down so you can work that SHAKS magic on it.
Best wishes for the future,
Brendan and Geraldine
A big thank you to you and Shak for finding the perfect 2014 M3 for me, I know it took some graft to get the spec but it's had me smiling from ear to ear since I picked it up so was well worth the wait! The other half is still happy with her 320D M sport we got last month as well, so once again a big thank you, See you for the next purchase!
In short, speaking as a lifetime 'petrol-head,' this was one of the best car-buying experiences I have had. I look forward to the possibility of dealing with S-S-C in the future and wish them well in their move to new premises.
I just wanted to leave a testimonial for use on your web-site if you wish.
Having decided back in December to squander some of my pension money on a used CLS63 AMG, I had spent a long time looking for the right car on Auto Trader. Just when I was beginning to despair of finding a particular car which ticked all the boxes, I discovered that Shak's Specialist Cars had one - Fantastic spec and colour combo, low miles, one owner and a good deal of money recently spent. I shot over to Huddersfield and was made welcome and treated like family by 'Mo' the salesman and all of his colleagues. The deal was done more or less immediately at what I considered to be a fair price and I was given a good warranty. Mo made sure that every aspect of the transaction, including the preparation and presentation of the car, was handled to my full satisfaction.
In short, speaking as a lifetime 'petrol-head,' this was one of the best car-buying experiences I have had. I look forward to the possibility of dealing with S-S-C in the future and wish them well in their move to new premises.
Hi To All,
Just wanted to thank you for the superb service I received when buying my GTR. What a car it is, worth the wait and worth travelling for. I shall definitely recommend your company, and you will be first call when I do look to change my car next time.
Just wanted to say a big Thank You to you and Shak for all your help with our new purchase. From the moment we arrived from Nottingham, you provided a professional, friendly, informative and courteous service. We have already recommended SSC to all our friends and we would definitely seek you out again for any future purchases.
Good luck for the move to your fabulous new premises.
Tim & Denise Elliott
Dear Adam and all the Team,
I write to thank you for the superb service I received from you in my purchase of the M3. I can't compliment you all enough, the service I received was excellent, all staff were polite and very friendly. It was much appreciated when you stayed late in the evening fitting in with my work and traveling to get there. Nothing was too much trouble.
I would certainly recommend Shak's to anyone looking for that special car. I am extremely happy with my M3 and will certainly visit your new show room in the future.
Thank you once again for an excellent and professional service.
Thank you very much for all your help to fix the Audi.
It has been an extremely difficult couple of months getting this fixed and I wanted you to know that I appreciate that this car has now been fully repaired (hopefully).
Your honestly and integrity is in my experience rare these days however I was relieved that you were a genuine man who does care about the cars you sell and after care service if there is a problem.
Hopefully you will not hear from me for at least 2 years when I look at changing the car.
Thank you once again.
Dear Shaks, Az & Roma,
I write to thank you for the superb service I received from you in my recent car purchase. From the moment I arrived at your dealership, I was made to feel right at home, and nothing was too much trouble for you, in ensuring I was completely satisfied with the car. You went beyond all expectations in terms of value, car preparation and service. You made sure my private plate was swapped over, the few tiny faults repaired on the car, and even deep cleaned the mats! I will be back for my next purchase, you have won a customer for life!
Thanks again for all your help - you have a great business there, and I can't wait to visit your new building in the near future.
Kindest possible regards
It was great to meet you and Shak and I wanted to thank you for the experience when buying my Audi RS6. As I said I was looking for a dealer that I could return to time after time when in the market for a new vehicle and think I may just have found the right place. I would happily recommend you to anyone. I am looking forward to visiting the new premises when they are ready.
Hi shak And all the team at ssc,
Thankyou all,for making the purchase of our car a very pleasurable one.very friendly polite staff,providing a professional service.special thanks to shakeel, who personally dealt with me and my wife,very nice person,attended to our Every need and querie,when purchasing our car,cannot thank him enough,would not hesitate to go back to ssc in the future,and have recommended them to all my family and friends.once again thanks to all the team at ssc.with special thanks to shakeel
All The Best,
Adam & the guys at SSC,
Just want to say many thanks for all the help and support you and the guys at SSC gave me when buying my C63 AMG. From the second I walked in, I was treated like a valued customer and not assessed just because of my age (like other dealers i have been to).
I was in a few minds on what car to buy, but you gave me a few options and allowed to me to have a couple of proper test drives. From walking in to buying the car you have looked after me and ensured that I was completely happy with the car. The car is amazing and it's everything I wanted from the moment I saw it. Can't wait to see you and the guys in a couple of years to get a new beast maybe a V10! You will be seeing me again.
All The Best,
Dan (Proud new C63 owner)
Just wanted to you to thank you for a very pleasant experience when I recently purchased my BMW X6 M Performance Edition from you. There are so many things that normally cause stress when you buy a car, but you were so helpful and understanding you made the entire experience effortless. The car I purchased has a super spec, it was serviced and valeted to a very high standard and it was ready for me in a very short time (sorry about that).
I will be telling all of my buddies in Ireland where they can go for a great deal and a great service!! What a show room of beautiful motors!!

I have bought a number of cars over the years from both large car manufacturer main dealers and smaller independent car traders and have had good and bad experiences. I recently decided to sell my Mercedes and after considering the various options available to me I was advised to visit Shaks car specialists in Huddersfield. On doing so I encountered a professional, knowledgeable, helpful service. The staff were attentive and courteous and ensured that what can often be a minefield of jargon based information was explained in a logical and honest manner.
I genuinely believe that I was given the best deal I could have found anywhere. The vehicles were all high quality which was reflected in the service. I would recommend Shaks to anyone looking for a quality motor from an honest, reliable dealer.
From an advert on Auto Trader online I met Shak and the team at Shak's Specialist Cars and completed the purchase of our Rolls-Royce Phantom yesterday. From the outset all members of the team have been readily accessible and easy to deal with, and the sale was completed yesterday exactly as promised. The car is everything that we were assured it would be, and will make an excellent addition to our fleet.
Thank you all
I came across SSC through auto trader, SSC provided me an outstanding service from start to finish, friendly and helpful staff making it a pleasure and hassle free in purchasing a car. I bought an audi s3 and my first impression was the photos didn't justify just how good the car really was, standing next to the car I knew it was going to be mine and thanks to Adam he made that decision for me much easier. I can't fault SSC in anyway, and would highly recommend them to anyone, and I will be doing.All the cars in the showroom were perfectly presented, and I would gladly own any one of them.
Thanks Adam for your time in answering my questions and going out of your way in helping me buy my dream car, I loved the drive home.
Best wishes and to all the staff at SSC,
I first got in touch with Adam from Shak's specialist cars over a month ago via email. I work away in Iraq and have been trying to source a car for over 3 months. Other garages I contacted seem to want payment there and then didn't have an in depth knowledge of the car. Also some reputations of other garages where as soon as the car was sold they believed the car wasn't there problem. My emails from Adam and Mo at Shak's garage where completely professional even though I was having second thoughts about buying the car due to not seeing it first. Once I arrived at the garage on the day of pick up I was welcomed in by the lads there was no rush to see the car.
The staff are genuinely interested in yourself and make you completely comfortable with the sale. I was shown the car and was blown away with condition. For a 13 year old car its condition was excellent. My car was one of the lower amounts in the garage but I was still given first class service. I would recommend this garage a million percent I have bought ten cars in my lifetime and the service I received was better with this garage by a long way. I will definitely look to buy another car in time.
We found Shak's via AutoTrader, and from the first phone call through to the after-sales support have found Shak's to be the best garage we've had the pleasure of dealing with. The car was exactly as described, with the garage even pointing out flaws we probably wouldn't have noticed, and the made the process as quick and enjoyable as possible. We'd happily come back to buy from them again.
Just a message to say a big thanks for your help in me buying my merc c63. The car is a total beast and the drive home was immense. I will mostly be back in the future to do more business as the stock you have is second to none
Greg Macaulay Greenock
Hi Shak / Adam,
Just a short message to say thank you for everything in purchasing my Ferrari F430 from you, I took my time as I was unsure about purchasing my first Ferrari though the way you handled everything was outstanding.
Just a quick email to let you know it's going. The car is fantastic, everything I could have hoped for and more. I've come to the conclusion that I'm quite possibly now driving the newest (very rare 13 plate!) and best specced RS3 in the country and I got it for similar money to what the Audi dealers are asking for cars a year or 2 older with much less spec, fantastic. I wanted to thank you again for your patience with the umpteen emails and calls over the couple of weeks prior to me coming from Glasgow to see it the first time then again the following week for collection. I was called foolish on an owners group for even considering buying out-with the "Audi Approved" dealer network, the simple facts are that Audi didn't have a car that even came close to the one I bought from you, you gave me an outstanding trade in price for my old S3 and my experience of main dealers are that I'd not have received anything like the fantastic, patient and personal attention that yourself and Azz provided during our transaction.
I'll be recommending SSC to everyone I know from now on in and I'll be back for my next car that I can assure you. True professionals with a real passion for beautiful performance cars and none of the giant corporation dealer nonsense.
Many thanks for providing an excellent service, before and after the purchase of our new BMW X5 M sport.
Communication over the phone prior to the purchase was second to none and nothing was too much trouble. This was extremely important to us as we were traveling 250 miles to buy the car. On arrival we were greeted by knowledgeable staff and made to feel very welcome. On viewing the car we were given plenty of time to ask questions and were happy with the genuine responses given promptly.
Overall we are delighted we made the long journey and would recommend Shaks Specialist Cars to those looking for an all-round professional service! Thanks again.
I recently purchased an Audi RS4 from Adam at Shaks Specialist Cars and traded in my BMW. As a motor trader myself I am always interested to see how other dealers operate and I wasn't disappointed. As I am based in London, the negotiations between us were mainly completed on the phone and Adam was incredibly straight forward and easy to deal with. He gave an honest appraisal of his car and offered me a very fair price in trade for mine. When I arrived the Audi was exactly as described and I found the company to be professional, efficient and very transparent throughout the transaction. I would happily buy another car from them and couldn't recommend their services highly enough. Thanks again for an easy deal mate.
Enjoyed my experience at Shaks Specialist Cars, very welcoming and relaxed environment . Very straight forward and easy to do business with. Thanks to Shak, Mo and Adam. I highly recommend you guys and I will be back, all dealerships should take a note out of Shak's books. And boy why have I waited so long to own a DCT M3!!!
Following on from a horrendous experience with another garage (VIP car sales) where we purchased a car which broke down on the way home, we then had to wait 4-5 weeks while VIP had our money and our car and didn't provide us with a courtesy car or any communication unless we chased really hard!
I managed to find Azz at Shaks yesterday (who VIP purchased our replacement car from as requested by us) who was able to provide me with a level of service that I can only describe as exceptional! In one day he managed to restore my faith in humanity! If you need a car or a level of service that is on a different level, look no further. I would recommend Shaks to anyone! Azz did over & above what was required of him. The car is beautiful & I would recommend 'shaks' to anyone!
Thanks Azz - you're a star!!
Good morning Mo
Many thanks for the help assistance over the last few days. Both you and Shak made the transaction very easy and comfortable. Please pass on my many thanks to Shak for organising the fantastic meal at Kabana. Overall a great first time experience to Huddersfield.
I would like to thank you and Shak for the fantastic service I received when purchasing my Audi A7. I had only previously dealt with main dealershipswhen buying my cars and whilst I was initially reluctant tant to go through a private dealer, I would now have no hesitation to return to SSC for all my cars in the future.
The level of service I received from Adam was outstanding! I had put a deposit to secure the car based on the information provided by Adam together with the photos on the SSC website. The car was nothing short of stunning and exactly as described by Adam.
The service on the day was also outstanding and I was extremely impressed with the time given to me and their knowledge of the car when giving me a demonstration. I would highly recommend Adam and Shaks Specialist Cars to my family and friends and will certainly be returning when purchasing my next car.
A great service by yourself from the very first e-mail right through until the car was delivered today at my door. Exactly the car we were looking for, great condition and top spec. My wife had seen various photos of the car on the internet, however it wasn't until this morning when it turned up at our house she knew she had found the car of her dreams. Between yourself and Shak there was never any pushy sales attitude, you told me from day one you wanted deal with me and we worked it out in the end. Now that my wife is happy with her "dream car", maybe i can start looking for an upgrade for myself.
For sure you will be the first person I will contact. A true gentleman.
Just a thanks for how I was treated when buying the most expensive car of my life & A thanks for the quality of car!!! I would definitely recommend SSC!!!
If you want a top spec car with top customer service then Shaks Specialist Cars is the place to go. They could not have been more professional or friendlier, I drove my Q7 away the same day and everything was sorted pronto. A big thanks to Adam for going the extra mile.
Just a quick review for an exceptional dealership.
I travelled up from Gatwick airport area and Adam / Shak and his team made it a very pleasant experience with nothing being too much of an ask. Strongly recommend Shaks Specialist cars as their customer service is way beyond and above a main dealer garage!!!!
Thanks mate for all your help! Absolutely love the car!!!
Just getting in touch to say thank you so much for all your help with my wife jenny buying her bmw 325 CI from you last weekend, she absolutely loves the car and is a dream to drive, it was nice to buy a car from someone who cared about its customers and not pressured into any deal, wish there were more places like yourself and your fellow co workers, thanks again, may your business go from strength to strength, I will definately be back in touch when im looking for a new car myself
Many thanks again and good luck for the future!
I had messaged Shak a few months ago with regards to a Maserati Granturismo MC Stradale that he was selling, I was on the fence whether I wanted a Granturismo Sport or MC Stradale and the price was right. In taking so long I managed to miss out on the car but Shak was absolutely amazing, he found a car with a slightly better spec and lower mileage and I put a deposit down straight away. He then travelled nearly 400 miles to pick the car up, had it serviced and prepped the car ready for me to collect. On collection the car was as immaculate as he told me, and actually even better than I had expected. To say I'm over the moon is an understatement, car is fantastic. Only downside is that Shak was unwilling to give me the keys due to loving it so much!
Thanks a bunch Shak, absolute pleasure and will be returning to you shortly for sure.
I have probably bought over 40 cars to-date and most have been from authorised dealers for BMW, Porsche, Audi. Sadly I have come to view car salesmen as a 'necessary evil' in the car shopping process, but dealing with you and your team to buy my X5 has been a pleasure from start to finish. My first visit to Huddersfield involved being picked up from the station in a white Rolls Royce, (if only it had 7 seats!), and you run a very courteous, professional and efficient customer service process. I own shares in BMW, but if you ever IPO your business then let me know and I will switch my shareholding!
Best wishes and I hope you go from strength to strength.
Hi Shak and Azz,
Thanks very much for all your help. Car is superb. I had looked around for a while for a suitable x5 - this one ticks all the boxes. Well worth traveling over to Huddersfield!
Had the Audi RS4 for over a week now and true to your word the car is absolutely stunning . I can't thank you enough for finding the time to deliver my RS4 to the back and beyond of rural Wales on such a busy bank Friday afternoon when the traffic was horrendous with everybody getting away for bank holiday weekend. You're a top man Adam, honest and professional and i shall look forward to doing business with you in the future at SSC when I'm due my next car. Many thanks for all your hard work on my behalf,
Shack and Azz,
I bought a BMW 335 (and part ex my 320d) from you a couple of months gone now and im so happy that me and my wife came to you. I did initially go the BMW dealership for this car but they were nowhere as helpful as the staff at Shaks. plus the cars they were showing me were nowhere as nice as the one i have bought from you. The BMW dealership were pretty much forcing me to part with my cash for a "so so" 335 they had. then i came across the beautiful (fully loaded) example you had. I dealt mostly with Azz and he really is a credit to the company. He made me and my wife feel at home when purchasing the car and went through all options with us. He was very patient with us and never at any point did we feel rushed into the purchase.
The car i bought was a little over budget but it was truly worth it. All that power and economy is a perfect package. im happy i dealt with you guys and im sure we will do so again in the future (the wife wants an X5M). Thanks again for all the professionalism, friendlessness and experience you brought to the table. Kudos!
Words cannot express the service from Adam, Arnella and the rest of the guys at Shaks. We would highly reccomend to family & friends.
Thank you for all your patience.
Jane & Alan Travis
Just a little note to say Thank you so much for finding us a wonderful Audi S6 and so quickly! They are so hard to come by but you found one and it is absolutely stunning we love it! You have been fantastic, polite have always returned our phone calls and e-mails promptly.
We have never experienced such great attentive and speedy service we will definitely do business with you again and will not hesitate to recommend you.
For anyone looking for a wonderful car, give SSC a call I've no doubt they will get you the car you want!
Paul & Kate Westmoreland
It was a pleasure doing business with you mate. Nice to meet a car dealer I can get on with, I normally run a mile... ;) LOL
The car was a pleasure to drive home, really enjoyed it. Can't wait to finish work and go for a mooch around in it. Thanks again Adam, appreciate it.
Shaks Specialist Cars has been our "go to business" for when we need a car. We dealt with Shak around 3/4 years ago when he supplied us with a lovely Audi Q7. However times have now changed as we've now brought a Land rover Discovery. The general consensus on the car is that we've gone from a Sports 4x4 to a luxury family suited vehicle. The car screams luxury from the inside and is well equipped! The design of the vehicle will take a little to get used to, but the on board multimedia system is definitely a bonus point. On behalf of Mr Rashid and family, id like to say thank you to Shak for supplying us with a car and accommodating to are general consumer needs when it came to selecting a vehicle. We got exactly what we wanted in terms of price. The customer service was terrific and not like any other business I've been too! We will definitely do business with you again and recommend you to our friends and family. I think you should create and Facebook/twitter page so others can provide information on their experience when dealing with a Shaks Specialist Cars. Thank you again for being professional and respectful when it comes to dealing with our needs.
Urfain Rashid and family.
Just wanted to thank you for your service yesterday. I am very pleased with the Seat Leon Cupra R 225 I bought from yourselves, it was worth the long journey. The car was very clean and mechanically sound. I would recommend SSC as the staff were friendly, honest, helpful and professional
Meant to leave a message earlier to thank you for a prompt and swift and helpful transaction with the RS3 last week. Have not had time coz i have been too busy driving it!! Great service from the team and an absolute beauty of a car!!! Will definitely recommend you and use you again in the future. Thanks again!
I am writing to you guys to express my huge thanks for the assistance and top quality service that i have just received from you. I recently travelled from Ireland to purchase an Audi A5 S Line Sportback from Shaks Specialists Cars. From the initial enquiry to months after the sale, the service I have received from both Shak and Adam has been second to none. This car was a very much sought after car, but true to his word, Adam said I was the 1st to enquiry so I had the 1st refusal. Adam was such a pleasure to deal with while negotiating a deal, and nothing was an issue and he always called back if he was busy and every email always got a reply, you wouldn't see a main dealer doing this. These guys could teach main dealers a thing or two. Shak's really does set the bar in customer service. I have never been so impressed by how efficiently any organisation and the way its ran.
On the day of picking up the car, I was collected by a friendly guy call Azz who set the tone from the off on the day of sale, he was witty, helpful and nothing was a problem. We then waited to deal with Shak as Adam was on holiday, let me just say, Shak whilst operating 2/3 mobile phones and 2/3 laptops, still makes you feel as if you are his No 1 customer. Everything stopped for us when we went into his office to do the paper work, and it was in such a relaxed and friendly environment. It was like he was one of your mates. I was to be sent a spare key from Shak, now as you'd imagine a lot of dealers would never send the key, as they have the money, the car is gone back to Ireland, but true to their word, the 2nd key arrived in the post today, and the much coveted Shak's air freshener's!! These Air Fresheners are amazing!!!
All I can say, both Adam and Shak are 2 of the nicest people I've had the pleasure of dealing with, I would have no hesitation in dealing with them again and in fact i have already recommended them to numerous people here in Ireland. It's an honest & happy business that really does have the customers interest at heart. I've never before done a testimonial but on this occasion I felt the need to express my thanks for everything you have done in the lead up to, during and after the sale. I really do look forward to dealing with both Adam and Shak again and this is one website I'll be adding to my favourites and phone number I'll be saving. Also the car is going like a dream, I couldn't ask for better.
Thanks again lads, top class service.
Just a quick email to say We are very please with the Audi A4 Black Edition it was a dream to drive up the road on Friday evening . We will definately buy a car from you again once again thanks for taking care of the paper work for our plate transfer.
Malcolm & Coreen
I would just to like to send this email as a thank you on how we were treated when purchasing our new car M3 which is fab now I have had a chance to drive it. From start to finish we had the same person (Adam) that dealt with us. on arrival at the garage after a long drive down from Fife in Scotland the customer care was fab. it is not only high quality vehicles but high personal service.
Anthony & Susan Green
I just wanted to send you a message of thanks and praise for the marvellous and courteous service we received with the purchase of our BMW 320d from Shaks Specialist Cars. We certainly found the right car at the right price, with a great and fair trade-in on our previous vehicle.
Particular thanks to Adam who did most of the hard work in the deal. We were also impressed with the speed at which our cherish transfer with all paperwork was organised and came through.
We look forward to doing business with you again in the future.
Apologies for not doing this a couple of days ago.
Just wanted to drop a note of huge thanks for sourcing me the Audi S6 and for the professionalism and courtesy extended by you and your staff. The car is fantastic and I am having huge fun driving it.
Please also pass on my sincere thanks to Azz and the young lady who looks after the office. I really appreciate the time they spent with me - more so as the showroom was very busy on Saturday - and the good humour and patience they showed. It speaks volumes when people take time to look after all the details, even once the deal has been done, and especially when they are so busy.
A pleasure buying from you and, I have no doubt, you will see me again.
A first class service all round.
I purchase a Range Rover on 14th Feb. Sales Az provides us great service. He was friendly and patiently answered our questions. He helped us sort out all the problems. We are satisfied with his service. We'd go for him again if we need to buy another car.
Just to let you know all is well with the golf, got home on Thursday around 4pm and couldn't be happier.
I contacted Shak at SSC requesting a valuation on a BMW coupe, and told him I was interested in a white Golf R he had for sale. Within an hour a had an email reply and the proceedings started. Following many emails back and forth with various questions about the car, I managed to get half a day off work and made arrangements to make the 2 hour trip to view the car. On arrival I was greeted by Shak himself, who was extremely welcoming, and allowed me to have a good look around at my own pace while he was busy with other things. Needless to say the car was actually better in person than I expected. His description was absolutelyy accurate and I knew we had to talk numbers.
Anyone who is thinking about buying a car from these guys, think no more, go and have a look. No pushy salesmen, just good honest people happy to help. I couldn't believe how busy Shak was with multiple phones ringing and 2 computers on the go, but he still had the time to deal with me in a relaxed manner. I will most certainly be in touch with SSC next time I'm looking for a change. Who knows, I may be able to afford that Ferrari next time!!
Thanks once again Shak, top bloke.
The car is running a treat, very please indeed. It's gone to a good home and will want for nothing. I would definitely recommend Shaks Specialist Cars, a great choice of extremely high quality and well-presented stock that's backed up with friendly and knowledgeable staff that actually know about cars and had my best interests at heart. Very happy indeed with my new Audi and I'll be recommending SSC to my friends and colleagues.
Just want to say a big thank you for all the help you gave us when we purchased our BMW. The cars brilliant, no problems as yet. We never felt pressured into buying it and we were really pleased with the customer service we received from all the staff.
Just wanted to say a big thank you for the help and support that I got from Adam and Shak when purchasing my car. I received emails and phone calls right up to 9-10 at night when trying to sort out my finance. Also, a fault in the car was fixed over the weekend to allow me to pick the car up on the monday right before christmas and I've not had any problems with the 2.5k miles I've done with the car in the 3 weeks of ownership!! Loving it!!!
The car was a fair price, the team were very welcoming and I will be keeping an eye on their stock for the purchase of my next car even though they are almost two hours away.
See you soon
Just a big thank you To you and the shaks team, for the great hospitality and service, after waiting for months for the right Audi S3 to turn up, Adam from Shaks contacted me to tell me about an S3 they had just got into stock. With me living in Newcastle Upon Tyne, all details were sent to me Via Phone and e-mail, a great price was given to me for my trade in before I decided to travel down, (which I was delighted with).
After a 2 hour drive from Newcastle I showed up at Shaks I was welcomed by a few friendly faces and a nice cup of coffee, then down to the hassle free deal which I left feeling very happy and drove back home to Newcastle in my S3, which had fantastic Spec, been well looked after'd and extensive history.
So all in all very happy with my Car and the great service from the Shaks team. Would well recommend and hopefully deal with them again.

I was recently in the market for an Audi S5, after looking at numerous (and I mean lots) I thought I had found my dream car. It was located at a 'dealers' (after the experience not sure dealer is the word I would now use)! I did the usual drive over to view the vehicle, test drove, had my trade-in checked over and valued and after spending over two hours with the 'dealer' had agreed prices, delivery times etc. Over that weekend the dealer contacted me to say unfortunately he had now sold the vehicle to someone else (angry didn't even come close to my feelings at that very moment)!!!
I had been in touch with Shaks Specialist Cars a couple of weeks earlier about an S5 they had in stock but unfortunately it had been sold before I had managed to sort myself out. I contacted Shaks and explained my current predicament with the 'dealer' and they actually tried to broker a dealer to get the vehicle from him for me as they had a third party contact in common, but he had already sold it!
Anyway, to the service from Shaks. I then found another S5 in Stoke-on-Trent, some 90 miles from Shaks and contacted Adam (my contact at Shaks), to see if they could get it for me. Adam and Shaks then shocked me with their service. Adam got on a train from Yorkshire to Stoke-on-Trent, fully inspected the vehicle, called me to raise a couple of minor concerns he had (tyre tread depth) and brought the car back to Shaks Specialist Cars. They then valeted the car, organised for my private late to be transferred (followed by new MOT, tax disc and fresh number plates being sent to me in the post) and gave me their Platinum warranty (which literally covers EVERYTHING)!!!
I have had quite a few vehicles in my time and dealt with a lot of dealerships and can honestly say I have never come across one as good as Shaks Specialist Cars and one who restored my faith in car dealers, I would without doubt recommend them to anyone who is interested in a new car (they will actually locate what you are looking for if you can't find it) and will be going back to them to find me an RS5 when the time comes.
Mr Barnes of Wheelton,
Just a thank you for your help selling me my Audi S3. Service was great no problems at all buying from Shaks. The drive back home was great and the car drove amazing. Thanks again and Shaks Specialist Cars will be the first place I come to when the time comes to change my motor again.
Thankyou shak and Azz on providing a superb customer service once again.
Really happy with the car. Thankyou again and see you all again soon hopefully. Thankyou.
Just a quick email to say Thank you Very Much mate, I'm well pleased.
Love it Shak.
Well, where to start...Speaking to Adam the whole way through made my experience pleasant with SSC. Absolutely brilliant representative for the company been good communication throughout. SSC live up to their words and are an outstanding company, would recommend to anyone!!! So pleased with the purchase of my Audi S3, car is brilliant. So thank you very much, you have a happy customer!!
I recently saw a car on Pistonheads,it was a Lotus Exige.It was no ordinary Exige it was one of only 35 that were made In 2010! To top it off only 2 in this country!!! My problem was that I had a Nissan GTR to sell first..I tried many channels by which to purchase the Lotus without selling my GTR etc...It seemed hopeless!!! Then I got introduced to Shak of Shak cars from a recommendation of a friend..He was very understanding an professional in his approach to my problem...Through a lot of troublesome phone calls, arranging and constant determination he managed to purchase the vehicle for me..Shak took on my GTR an gave me a VERY FAIR price for it!!!
If ever I need/want another vehicle this is the man to go to!!! A BIG thumbs up! :)
Just a note to say thank you to Azz and Shaks for making my first car buying experience so easy.
Just a note to say a HUGE Thank you to SSC, especially Yourself who made the purchase of my Audi S5 seamless. Your knowledge of the car was fantastic, The customer service was second to none. I would definitely purchase another quality and reliable car from SSC. I will be back without a doubt, what you guys do there is like no other car buying experience out there and I congratulate you on that !!
Ian Brazier, CITP MBCS
I would like to thank Azz and the team for all their efforts both pre and post sale. The service I have received from everyone at Shaks cars has been outstanding. I was initially nervous committing to buy C63 AMG having never inspected the car and knowing the deal would be done over the phone/email.
It turns out I had no cause for concern, Azz and the team expertly guided me through the process and when i turned up to collect the car I was delighted. It was stunning.The car was exactly as described in the advert, drove perfectly and was everything I had been promised. I would highly recommend SSC to anyone looking to buy a used car and you can be safe in the knowledge that you'll be treated exceptionally both during and after the sale.
Got home safely, and have been very impressed with the car. Drove beautifully, straight and true. I have been very impressed with the service given at SSC Cars, especially from Adam, who clearly has a impressive interest (and knowledge) in BMW's. He was very thorough, easily contactable and helpful. I am very proud of my purchase, a quality vehicle for a very reasonable price. In addition to the vehicle being priced very reasonably, SSC even gave it a service, replaced two rear tyres, fitted new brake discs and pads, and removed a few scuffs/scratches from the bodywork. The car drives beautifully and I couldn't be happier! Thanks again!!!
I just emailed to say that I was very pleased with your service and your help with arranging of us to come and see car and have it ready for us to take away straight away I will look to buy from you again when I need to change up thank you once again.
Just to say a very special thanks to Shak, Adam and the team for the excellent service provided during the purchase of my new Range rover sport-nothing was too much trouble and I will definitely be buying more cars from Shaks in the near future I have already recommended the team to my friends and family.
Hi Shak & Adam, Just a quick testimonial to let other customers what i think. I work offshore and my time at home is very limited. I saw a car on Shak's website and made the call while I was still out at sea. The day I got home I went to the show room and arrived about two hours early and the car having a full MOT as promised. I was made very welcome and was treated really well during my wait. When the car turned up, it had been detailed to a high standard and the test drive was a pleasure. The fact that everything was as described made my decision to deal with Shak a good one, even though I hadn't seen the car. I fully intend to use this dealership in the future. Thanks for a pleasant painless buying experience.
Also just a thank you for your assistance in the whole process. The car's great and going really well, many thanks and hope to see you in the future.
Just a note to say thank-you to SSC, especially Adam who made the purchase of my X5 seamless. His knowledge of the car was fantastic, he was able to talk me through all "gismos" that the car had to offer. The customer service was second to none, I would definitely purchase another car from SSC, quality and reliability.
Hi Shaks & Az,
Just a line to say car is great, all working well. Very pleased.
Thanks for all your help and polish!
Even though the Porsche I bought was the cheapest but one of Shak's stock the treatment I received from Az was first class. The car had a couple of minor problems which were promised to be fixed. Shak sent the car to a Porsche specialist to be fixed rather than a 'back street' garage, I even given a copy of the invoice. One problem, the Sat Nav player, is awaiting a part for it to be fixed, again this has gone to a recognised company to be repaired. All in all a pleasant transaction and I will look at SSC in the future when I'm looking for another car for the stable.
Just a short note to thank Adam & Shak for supplying the 5 Series BMW yesterday.
The car is fabulous and was very reasonably priced. Throughout the transaction you and your colleagues have shown an exceptionally high level of professionalism and delivered everything I asked for and more.
I will certainly consider SSC in the future and should any of my friends or colleagues be looking for a competitively price, quality car I would have no hesitation in recommending SSC.
Many thanks and kind regards,
Brian Russell - Leeds
Just to say that I am very happy with the Golf R and it performs extremely well. Both my children have put it through its paces. I think it's better and more practical than a 911 which was my other option.
Anyway, I also want to say Jzk for the excellent service I got from you and the staff. I really appreciate your honesty and integrity in your business dealings.
Hopefully we will do business again in the future IA.
From the initial greeting at the showroom, Adam was very friendly and welcoming. I was shown the car I was interested in and at no time did I feel any pressure from Him. His manner and attentiveness were really good, and he took time to show me the documents showing the vehicle history, etc. I paid my deposit, and the communications as the car was prepared for collection were absolutely spot on. . The car was prepared really well, and Adam took the time to show me the features and controls before I departed.
I would definitely recommend Shak's Specialist Cars to anyone looking for a nice example of a performance or "prestige" car. They have an excellent selection of very high quality cars, and even though the car I bought was one of at the bottom end of their price range, the service received was excellent.
Just a quick note to say thanks for all your help in finding me my M3. I was really pleased with the service and information you were able to give me.....and I also love the car!
Called up on the Friday night and spoke to azz about a range rover sport. Didn't want to do a 3 hr round trip the next day if the car wasn't sound. I trusted what he said. Within an hour of arriving I had signed for the car and picked it up the following week! Great customer service and got the car what I was looking for. Had 2 after sales calls already asking if everything is ok. Azz is already looking for an Audi for my girlfriend. Not going to look elsewhere for future cars.
From Ian Davies
My experience with Shak was TOP CLASS, just like the vehicles he sells. I part exchanged a mercedes benz coupe for a audi Q7 back in 2008. I ran the vehicle for three years and contacted Shak about the Q7 when I was looking to renew, he was so pleased with the condition of the Q7 he repurchased the vehicle, which went smoothly, and best of all, NO PUSHY SALES. I've had a lot of experience with new and used car sales and none of them have given me such good deals ! I would highly recommend Shak and his team @ Shaks Specialist Cars Ltd as your next used car dealership to purchase a vehicle from.
I have bought my white audi Q7 s line from Shaks specialist cars I came in on a sunday and took the Q7 which i was looking for some time, Azz the sales person who served me a week ago was not their but shakes the owner was their to serve me, its very rear to get a owner to give you a service like that I was stunning service from Azz the sales person. I felt so welcomed by the service. the owner spent time going throw with the details inside the big Q7 he also gave me an extra ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã‚Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£40 to top up on diesel and gave that extra service by exchanging my private number plate over to the new car from the old one and sent on post to me, their is no word to describe how I felt boys that Azz the sales person and the owner that gave me an excellent service, please do keep up and do not stop this service even if business goes sky high which it will, if you are a customer who is reading my message trust me and go ahead with the car you want from them. they no what they doing and have excellent service to provide, insha'allah i will come back and will let all the family & friends no to come and give you a try, thanks from a very happy customer and hope to do business in coming years, thanks again keep it up boys and tap on the back, thanks Azz
From Ash (East London)
May I take this opportunity to thank you for such an excellent BMW, top service from everyone there, polite, professional and coffee was great. Shak can be proud of the team
Az, I would like thank you for all your help regarding my purchase of the vauxhall corsa vxr. You dealt with all of my enquiries very quickly and made sure everything was dealt with as quickly as possible. You made me feel very welcome and made sure the process of buying the car went as smoothly as possible. Would highly recommend Dealing with Shaks Specialist Cars. All staff are friendly and welcoming. Again, thank you!
If anything could go wrong when buying a car it went wrong for me, from financial issues to just bad luck, but at shaks specialist cars, not only did they work tirelessly to get it sorted, they made me feel like a valued customer, just as if I was buying one of their supercars. This is my first car bought from shaks but definitely wont be my last. Thanks guys.
Great service from Shak's. Bought an S Class which has matched and surpassed my expectations. A great car, all ready on time, went amazingly smoothly and staff all extremely helpful. A good experience all through.
Adam i would like to thank you for your time and help last week when purchased my bmw 535d msport.From seeing the car on the internet through to driving out the door I found the service provided fantastic. As you will apreciate living north of Aberdeen i was not in position to pop round and see the car,but your over the phone description was spot on,and i was certainly not disapointed.may i take this oportunity to thank you for coming out of your way to pick me up from the hotel which certainly made life easier for me.I hope to business again in the future.
I would like to thank Adam for the professional friendly and efficient service given to myself when buying Audi Q7. As promised the car was immaculate and all little jobs promised were carried out, Excellent service, would highly recommend. Thank you.
Would just like to thank you for the service I received when I bought my BMW Z4 recently. The car is fantastic and the sales team were informative and helpful and I was very impressed with the fact that whatever I needed and was promised it was delivered, no problem! Couldn't recommend highly enough.
Dave and Kelly
Thank you for making my family and I most welcome at your showroom when we recently purchased a 4x4 vehicle from yourselves. We are very happy as the vehicle is in first class condition and exactly as described. We would not hesitate to use your services again and would recommend you highly.
Dear Adam and Shak,
Just a quick email to thank you so very much for the amazing and swift handling of my new car purchase. The process was done in a timely, efficient manner and I greatly appreciated Shak taking the time out of his busy schedule to come drop off the new car and take mine in exchange. The new Audi R8 is in super condition and I took it for a spin last night. Terrific!! I've loved my other R8 and just feel like a newer upgrade and the V10 is outstanding. The R Tronic is very quick and probably quicker than my own gear changing manually.
I really appreciated the way you have all done business with me and I'd really be pleased to use you again in the near future.
All the best and thanks,
I had been looking for a blue 2007 Audi s3 8p with sat nav, bucket seats, and Bose sound system. I came across Shaks website and fell in love with the shear standard of cars that he dealt with. I sent a general enquiry to Adam who works for Shak. I asked Adam about 10 different questions about the car, He held his hand up and said he couldn't answer all the questions off the top of his head, He told me he would find out what I was asking and call me back, sure enough he phoned me back the same day to answer my questions, he also sent me pictures of specific area that I thought were suspect, I was happy with what I had seen and heard from Adam. We then discussed travel for me and my girlfriend as I was travelling down from Aberdeen.
I took a flight to Manchester then a train from Manchester to Huddersfield, Adam picked us up at the train station in Huddersfield with the S3 that I was purchasing, He drove us to Huddersfield then pulled over and let me give it a road test, I took it over bumps,hills,windy roads listening for knocks/rattles. I was happy with the condition and spec so we headed back to the office. At the office we met Shak who was also I very nice man. Everything was discusses to me fully. I then went ahead with the purchase and drove away a happy customer.
Small points that I liked about the service which were unexpected: I got ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã‚Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£700.
Once I got home I got the car serviced and checked over. The brake pads were very low, I sent Adam an email with the invoice for the pads and a photo of them. He greatly apologised and sent a cheque to me for the price of the pads which again he could have just told me to do one but Adam is a good man aswell.
I purchased my BMW 535d from Shaks Specialist Cars and I would like to say there team is second to none, nothing is too small for them to sort and there aftercare is perfect if you buy your next dream car buy it from Shaks you wont go far wrong.
I just wanted to say a massive thanks to Adam and Shak for the service they gave us when we bought our BMW 325D coupe. Everything about the sale was smooth and perfect, from the test drive to all the information about the car. I would definitely do business with them again.
Gary from London.
I just want to say thanks to Adam and Shak, I was more than impressed with the service I got prior and after the sale of the car. Also with the friendly attitude from both of you, It was good to see how you accommodated me and dealt with my requests prior to me purchasing the car. I am really happy with the car as it is everything you said it would be with no hidden surprises. Yet again thank you very much to you and the team. I look forward to dealing with you and your team again in the near future.
Thank you so much for your service in the purchase of our new car we are over the moon with it!!! Its very tidy and lovely to drive!!! Yourself and your staff were very friendly and we will certainly be using your services again!!!
Thank you once again
Danika and Tony
To Shak and your staff,
"Thank you very much for the honest description of the BMW It was worth travelling the 85 miles to view it and buy it. The fact that you put new mats in the car that are the correct design was the attention to detail that is missing in larger garages. The drive home was superb. I would certainly recommend Shaks"
JOHN(P.S My 4 year old son loves it!)
"Firstly thank you for your great effort to deliver the car down to Stratford Upon Avon after working hours to meet our requirements , the service is very much appreciated.
To provide some feedback to you as a business the following is a brief summary , from my first call the female responding to the calls was very helpful and was interested in which car I was calling about and how I would I like to be contacted as the sales team were busy at the time ( she was enthusiastic ). From making contact with the sales man Adam, he was able to meet my tight deadlines and additional items I wanted on the car then deliver the car over 100 miles from the salesroom in 2 days !!!
Regular update calls were made and responded too , always polite and professional and with genuine interest in ensuring we the purchaser were satisfied. Overall it has been a good experience with No disappointments and thanks for returning my calls after hours ( Adam and Shak )"
Anne Nuttall & Martin Nuttall
"I wanted to take this opportunity to personally thank Shak and the team, I felt compelled to share my experience as so may others have on his website, it was this that gave me the added security in using his company ! When I set out to buy a new car, I was stuck because of my budget there were only two Black Masarati Granturismo's for sale, one 250 miles away and one 60 miles away, when I first called Shak about the car, I instantly felt comfortable in his knowledge of the car, its history and the description was honest, I like the fact that Shak didn't pressure me at all , I was a pain I called up 3 times a day I think, But after comparing the cars and my experience with the other dealer who knew nothing about the car, the matter of ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã‚Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£1000 off the car because I called him back, I live in Southampton and Shak was based in Huddersfield, he took out a day and drove the car to me, now that's service !!, from the paperwork to getting the keys my experience was pleasurable, no hassle !, having bought from main dealers before I thought Audi were good, Shak you represent a new standard of customer service, one which I can learn from in my own business, I wish you every success and will recommend you, and use you again! If any one wants to verify this feedback of Shaks specialist cars, you can call me at my work Just remortgages Ltd ! 01489563423 best regards and thanks Marc Fortune."
Marc Fortune, Just Remortgages Ltd
"Hi Shack, This is just to thank you and your enthusiastic team for giving me an excellent service and advise to purchase my Mitsubishi Outlander. This was a special purchase for me as it was done to accommodate my ever growing family with the birth of my daughter and you have made that special time count by helping me in many ways. Definitely will recommend SSC for anyone who is serious about doing a good business which will last in their mind for a long time. Thanks and good wishes, hoping to do more business with you guys in the future."

Amazing car , amazing service , what more can I say but thank you , and I know where I'll be going when I want to change again"

"I'd just like to express my gratitude to you and your staff Shak, for the excellent service and attention to detail when buying my Range Rover sport. I was very impressed with your team, and how efficiently everything was handled. I felt compelled to write and tell you how pleased I am with everything, and shall certainly be recommending you to my friends and family. You have a great business Shak, and I wish you every success for the future, keep up the good work!"
"Just wanted to say thanks to you and your team for the way we were taken care of when we bought the Porsche from you this week. Friendly, but professional - all our requests and expectations were met - on time, to our satisfaction and as you'd promised. We were very impressed, as these days it's rare to find someone who actually does what they say they're going to do. The car is great, and we're thrilled! When we're next looking for a new vehicle, we'll be sure to come back and see you. Thanks again, and good luck for the future."

"I've just bought an Audi A4 S Line Quattro TDI with all the bells and whistles from Shak, I'm also not one for testimonials as I tend to think they are usually written by the company itself or associates of the company. However on this occasion based on the first class service I've received from Shak, I felt compelled to let people know that anybody looking for that special car really should give Shak a try first before looking anywhere else. He is a likeable, genuine guy who keeps his word, from the time we agreed a price for the car he was offered a higher price to sell the car to someone else but stuck by his agreement with me and even went so far as to arrange for the car to be delivered to me in London. This kind of service in this day and age is unheard of. Without question I now have no intention of ever purchasing another car from anyone else other that Shak. Shak has my details on file and I am more than happy to personally speak to anyone who wants to hear my testimonial first hand."
Mr Sam Foster, South East London.
"First time I have ever met Shak after coming across his website online. I change my car quite often and was put under no pressure off Shak at all in purchasing a car, advice was superb and Shak had plenty of patience with me. In the end, decided to buy a Range Rover Vogue after agreeing a great deal on a part ex with my old Range Rover Sport, offered me a lot more than anybody else would. I will definitely not be buying my cars from anywhere else after dealing with Shak, would definitely recommend anybody to buy vehicles from Shak. This is genuine feedback from a very satisfied customer from Shaw, near Oldham. Would happily accept calls for anyone who wants further feedback or recommendations. Do not choose to buy anywhere else, until you have given Shaks a try. Thanks!"
"Just a quick note to the lads at SSC Motors . I recently purchased my Passat CC GT from SSC Motors and from first introductions to final hand over of my new car the lads at SSC Motors were 100% professional. At no point did I feel under any pressure to buy, you are allowed to take your time and look at all the fantastic vehicles on offer at great prices. So to finish big thank you to Adam for setting up the deal for my car and big thanks to Shak for the total professionalism and great customer service. Will be back for my next car."
"Just needed to say, bought my Audi S5 from these lads a month ago and the service they provided was top notch, from my first call to Shak they made me feel great, they're not pushy sales people just easy going lads making a living. The car is great I just feel bad that I have not bought from them before no more main dealers for me, its SSC all the way.
"Hi Shak, Just a few words of genuine appreciation. I am really happy with my Maserati and feel I had a great deal and excellent service from you and your team! To get a warranty that is better than I expected and my paperwork for a private registration on the car free of charge and you guys did all the paperwork, was so good of you all. I would highly recommend your company to anyone and no doubt use your services again. Much respect Shak!"
"Hi Azz and Shaks, just a note to add to your already impressive testimonials
I bought a BMW 330 ci from Shaks specialist cars just about a week ago. The service i received was first class, whether it was face to face or over the phone. Having to travel nearly 800 hundred miles round trip i had to make sure i could trust what i was being told. I did. And more. Shaks and Azz i thank you both very much. Till next time guys. "
"I purchased a BMW 3 series from this dealer and I would highly recommend him, a good man and quality cars !"

"Here is a quick testimonial for you pal and my mum loves the air freshener in the car. I could do with a year stock of them there gorgeous. I recently had the pleasure of dealing with Shak and his team, all I can say is what a professional set he runs. The cars are all top notch and the service from when you get to the door till you drive away is with a big smile and the knowledge that you have been taken care of. I will be recommending him in the future and deal with him for any other car needs I have thanks again Shak."
Thanks once again for your exceptional customer service. it was second to none and greatly appreciated. You were thoroughly honest, helpful and another huge thanks for delivering my car to me in Surrey from Leeds as promised. As I said then you have a customer here for life! and I will be recommending you to everyone!"
"As a very happy customer I am pleased to say that Shak and his team went the extra mile in sorting a deal for me to swap cars. Nothing was too much trouble and communication was excellent. All in all a first class experience that I will repeat."
"After looking carefully online and speaking to Shak my mind was made up, I had to see the showroom and my particular car of interest. Upon arrival I was immediately greeted and made welcome even though it was obvious Shak was a very busy man. After a coffee and watching his team clean and move cars we discussed business and Shak personally showed me round my car, we went for a test drive and he explained all the idrive controls in a clear and unhurried fashion. If you want the best then Shak is your man, a truly professional and friendly service, I will be back. One day all cars will be sold by Shak."
"Thanks Shak for sourcing and supplying my immaculate Mercedes C63 AMG. Shak kept me fully informed of progress and supplied the car looking better than new! The purchase was easy and fuss free, the hand over was informative and the car organised with tax and insurance all in place ready for the appointed collection time. I was very happy with the service, so much so that I have asked Shak to source another car, this time for my wife!"
"I recently bought a Ferrari F430 from Shak's Specialist Cars in Huddersfield and have to say that the quality of service I received thought-out the transaction was outstanding. I have previously bought three high performance sports cars from different main dealers in London but the quality of service I received from SSC was far superior in every way.
Despite me being based in London the transaction was completed with the utmost ease and nothing was too much trouble for Shak and his team. Shak arranged for a full 190 point Ferrari inspection to be carried out, paid for the car to be serviced by a Ferrari main dealer and at my request arranged for rear parking sensors to be fitted.
Furthermore, since I could only collect the car after work on a weekday, it meant that I arrived in Huddersfield at 8:30 p.m. at night. Nonetheless, I was met at the train station by Shak himself and the transaction was completed smoothly with Shak insisting I couldn't leave Huddersfield without him buying me dinner. Like the service I received from SSC, the food was equally exceptional. Not sure what time Shak eventually got home but it was 11:45 p.m. by the time we left the restaurant and Shak guided me onto the motorway.
The car is flawless and I cannot recommend Shak and his team highly enough. I will definitely be back for my next purchase!"
I authorise you to you this statement in your testimonials. " I have to say of all the times I have purchased a car in the past, of which there have been many, none can compare to the ease and treatment I received In part exchanging my vehicle for a top quality and very well equipped C63 AMG. Shak was true to his word on everything that he said he would do. i.e. Service the car, replaced tyres, sort Road tax and exchange of personal Plates, even to being covered to drive the car away on the day and for a week after, under insurance covered by Aviva. The whole experience was simple and I would definitely consider sourcing another vehicle from SSC Ltd and would certainly recommend anyone wishing to buy a quality high end vehicle from these people."
"I would like to share my experience of buying my new car an Audi a3 red s line fully automatic and the service I received...
I had been viewing the car on the website www.s-c-c.co.uk in Huddersfield for some time watching the car and looking at the photos and description, really just dreaming that one day I would be able to purchase such a car and was initially looking for next year but the colour and the spec was absolutely spot on so I couldn't wait.
I made an initial telephone enquiry to check the cars availability and when I could book a test drive, all this was handled very promptly and without fuss - with no horrible "dodgy salesman's tricks" JUST PLAIN TALKING which was such a refreshing change, I can tell you these guys are so busy as the phone never stops ringing - and it is always answered!
Test drive over and pick up schedule booked for two days time - handover was excellent and on time, all jobs completed on the car which included paint chips and spare keys and also two new rear tyres - paperwork was all completed including a HPI check and all the service documents - I was also astounded to get a full warranty for three months that could be used at any U.K. garage and was the top one available so no expense spared there either. All my documents were handed to me in a wallet inc new driver details and all receipts and HPI documents - Shak even posted on all my relevant paperwork for me and was never too busy to answer any emails or questions.
Honestly the most pleasant car purchase and certainly the most expensive I've ever made, and without a doubt I would not hesitate to recommend him and go and get my next new car from him - thanks Shak."

"We found the car that ticked all the boxes at Shak's Specialist Cars as Shak has a passionate eye for only stocking top spec vehicles. We were totally impressed with Shak's 'can-do' attitude for quick attention to sort the finer details for delivery after we came to inspect the car. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Shak for meeting us halfway on a few extra items for the car, which helped to make us feel we had a good deal. Shak's after sale service has been great, so we will have no hesitation to look over Shak's stock when it comes time to replace our car."

"I recently purchased a Mercedes 350SL from Shaks Specialist Cars having found the car I was looking for online. Both Shak and Azz were helpful and professional whilst at the same time being friendly and informal. Time is an issue for me as I don't have any spare, so was relieved that having made the journey to see the car it was exactly as described with no nasty surprises. The following day the car was prepared for me to collect and they picked me up from the train station to save me getting a taxi. They have a massive amount of stock and I would be happy to recommend them to anyone."
"I bought my S5 after seeing it advertised on the website. I live overseas and Shak was able to make the whole buying experience a pleasure without me even having to visit the showroom. Shak was more than happy to send me photos of every angle of the car, arrange for minor improvements to be made to it and to have it delivered for me. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Buying over the internet can sometimes require a buyer to take a leap of faith but I can assure any reader that the "leap" is well placed with Shak. Many thanks for all your help. Let me know if you get any more LHDs in!"

"Fao Shak and Azz, just wanted to say a massive thank you for the purchase of my RS focus! Not only is it stunning in every way, but the whole service from from both Shak and Azz was exceptional and made the whole experience exciting and pain free. I would have no hesitation in recommending this dealer to all my friends. A great range of exclusive motors and fantastic service! Thank you guys and see you on my next purchase!
"Hi guys just wanted to say many thanks for the smooth purchase of the S3 for my wife. Everything was handled perfectly as knew more about the car than the main dealers did! Test drive was no problem and everyone was friendly at the showroom in a relaxed family atmosphere. The car was ready for collection and all sorted as promised on time and spotlessly clean. Now tell me some more information about that DB9 you've got for sale, I'm very tempted!"

"A brief note just to say how delighted I am with my new car purchase and especially to thank you for the courtesy and professionalism of your organisation that has been evident throughout.
It seemed nothing was too much trouble and I shall most certainly make you my first port of call next time
With thanks and best wishes."
"Thank you for your assistance in helping me purchase my Audi S3. You were all very helpful and made my purchase virtually stress free.
Great car, great service, great people. Highly recommended. Thank you."
"Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for the more than excellent and smooth service that you gave me when I bought the Range Rover from yourselves.
It is not often that you walk into a showroom and the staff look offended when you dont want a tea, coffee or soft drink.
The attitude of you and all of your staff is commendable, we have never felt so at home.
I will certainly be coming back in the future when I am looking to buy any other cars and will be recommending yourselves to all of our friends and family."
"I would just like to say how happy I am with the A4, its an absolute dream to drive and is everything I was looking for. Also I would like to thank you and your team on how easy it was to purchase from you, I would recommend you to anybody who is after an Audi, as you and your team made it painless and have plenty of choice.
Maybe we can do buisness again one one day. "
"Having recently part exchanged my car at SSC I felt enthused to write a testimonial. The car that I purchased was in near pristine condition and came fully loaded. The transaction was flawless from start to finish. In a nutshell the difference is that SSC are passionate about delivering a quality of service and ensuring customer satisfaction above everything else. Thanks Shak, will certainly recommend you to friends and family and look forward to using your services in the future."
"Just to say thanks to Az for the friendly and efficient service! car is pretty much perfect and big thanks to Shaks as a whole. Would recommend to all looking for a professional yet easy-going customer service. Thrilled with the car and certainly will be a first port of call in the future! Cheers Az, Shak n team!"
"Buying a used car can be a stressful experience but I have to say from the moment I walked onto SSC's forecourt my family & myself felt completely at ease. There was none of the pushy sales people you come to expect when visiting such establishments, just people willing to help & advise when needed. The test drive was arranged promptly, despite my selected car being sited in the worst possible location on the forecourt.
After the test drive the car had pretty much sold itself however there is always that nagging doubt in the back of your mind about is it the right vehicle? will anything go wrong with it? are the dealers reputable? Everybody has a horror story about a used car purchase/a dodgy car dealer where things have gone horribly wrong. Having not dealt with SSC before you could have those same fears here but once again your customer service excelled itself and you certainly earned my trust.
Now a fortnight on and your customer service continues to excel, I came home yesterday to receive a thank you letter enquiring if everything is okay, which of course it is. The small details are what count and companies who go that extra mile to make sure the customer is satisfied deserve every success. I wish everyone at SSC all the very best & I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who cares to listen.
I believe nobody is perfect but you guys came very close 9/10 (careful your in danger of giving car dealers a good name ;) )
Once again thank you for all your help."
"To all at Shaks Specialist Cars Ltd, Thank you very much for you great service, I am very happy with the Kia Sportage you sold me a few weeks ago.
I would recommend your company to anyone as I am very happy with the whole process you gave me. I hope to deal with you in the near future"
"I just wanted to say a big thank you to Shaks and his team for a very professional service they gave me. From the time I made the initial enquiry about the A5 to the collection of the vehicle, all the staff were very helpful and willing. I have always purchased my cars from Audi dealers whether it be a new or a used car because of the level of service they provided me with.
When I saw the A5 advertised which had the spec I was looking for I had to buy it even though it was from an independent dealer. If I am being honest, the level of service I received from Shaks and his team was something else. When I went to see Shaks for the A5 I did not feel that I am being pressured into buying the car. When you are buying a car from the dealers it sometimes feels as if you are being pushed into the purchase so that the sales person can meet his monthly target.
I did not get this impression from Shaks and this is what made the whole experience of viewing the car more pleasant. His sales approach felt genuine. The test drive was an experience in itself. Shaks went through the whole of the car with respect to all the functions/features the A5 had. It did take a while as this A5 had many many extras (not boasting honestly!!).
The level of professionalism Shaks team has shown me I can honeslty say that my next car will be from Shaks. NO NEED TO GO TO THE DEALERS TO GET THIS LEVEL OF SERVICE. Thanks guys!!"
"I would like to thank Adam and Shak for the faultless service they gave to me when buying my Range Rover Sport. I travelled over 200 miles and they stayed open after hours till 9pm. The car was above all of my expectations and i would highly recommend Shaks Specialist Cars. Thank you"
"Dear Shak and Adam
I bought a focus st off you before christmas. You did everything you could to get me into the car as soon as you could, and dealt with everything very professionally. Was very impressed with the service and politeness of the other staff that I met whilst I was there, and will definateley recommend you.
Thanks again "
"I just wanted to say thanks to Adam and Shak for the exceptional service and quality Audi A4 I got today. For a 3 year old 85000 mile car it drives more like a 20000 mile 1 year old car and looks it too. Exactly as described great condition throughout. Everything that was agreed was done not like other dealers trying to save every penny they can and accidentally forgetting to do a few of the things. They even had time to show me how all the controls worked and how to change a few settings before I left. Great team and I will definitely be using again."
"Dear Azz and the team. I would like to thank Azz and everybody at SSC for the absolutly outstanding service they provided me with during the test drive and purchase of my MK4 Golf R32. The transaction was very stress free and quick with no issues at all, If i had a question, Azz had the answer. All i can say is thank you very much for the amazing car and service, I will most definatly be reusing SSC for any future cars that i may be looking for and recommending SSC to anybody seeking a quality car and second to noone service. Thanks again guys!"
"Having looked for several weeks I found the exact car I was looking for at Shaks Specialist Cars, From the very first call to the car been delivered all the way to Scotland the service was first class. Shak took time to go through every detail of the car and his team of staff went that extra mile for me. Without any doubt my next car will be coming from SSC- Great Service-Great Prices"
"Thank you for your help and fantastic service.
My audi S5 is brilliant well worth me coming from London to your showroom.
For everyone who reads my message these guys are great they have lovely classy cars but most of all customer care.I drove 200miles to buy a car when I arrived I was shown the car which was super clean and sparkling and as described over the phone.All paper work was done for me, my privet number plate was dealt with.
They even made new number plates with my private registration and sent them to me free of charge.
Shouldn't really say this but on my way back to London they took me to a local petrol station and filled my tank up for my journey home (now that's customer care!) Believe me my trip back down the M1 to London in my new S5 was well worth it.
Londoners I recommend it..
Thank you once again"
