It has been a pleasure to do business with these lovely people
They were courteous, friendly, helpful and did everything they said they
Would do
We are very pleased with the vehicle we bought from them and have no hesitation in recommending them or using them again in the future

i would highly recommend online van car and bus to anybody, from the moment we called up we were looked after by each member of staff, even to the point were they sourced me a local insurance broker, i felt they were very honest from the beginning letting me know any problems with the vehicle and what they would recommend i should do if they were buying the vehicle, i was able to take the van out for a good test drive, long enough to get a feel for the van, TMS never made me feel pressured to buy the vehicle. in the end i did by the van and they did more than asked getting it prepared and ready for me, i would highly recommend this company to anybody buying a vehicle and will be most certainly coming back here in the future

kind regards

It was a pleasure to meet you both yesterday. Gareth is more than happy with the Van and my wife is pleased I did not charge it to the house account!!
As requested “I purchased the vehicle online without first viewing. The description of the van I received from Steve was 100% accurate. I have no hesitation is recommending Steve and his online company to anyone looking for a fair and honest transaction. “ Good luck with your move to Christchurch and I hope that 2016 is an excellent year for you, your family and business. I will ensure Gareth checks your site if and when he decides to upgrade his van.
King Regards.

Hello Steve and Debbie Thankyou For the Renault Master that I now use with my business. It was sourced very quickly for me once I gave all my requirements,  Steve made sure it was in tiptop condition when I took delivery even taking care of some small bodywork Issues. The vehicle has exceeded expectations and I’m grateful to All at TMS for a job well done. I will have no hesitation in referring others to Steve and the team. May thanks Dave (Renault Master MM35 Business)

They part exchanged my car and  I purchased a Ford Ranger which I am very happy with. The car was presented to me in immaculate condition and was everything I was promised.

From my 1st enquiry to the day of collection I have nothing but praise for Steve, Debbie & Mike. All of my questions were answered honestly and promptly. They  built The Beast (Raptor Ranger) to my exact spec, keeping me updated on the progress. They gave me a good part exchange on my old vehicle. The car was ready for me to collect when they said it would be and even helped me to tax it before I drove it home. I will definitely use them again and have no hesitation in recommending them, a great family business with genuine friendly Customer care. Thank you very much, Michelle.

VW Transporter Conversion

What more can I say other than purely amazing in every way! Upon first meeting Steve, Debbie and Mike I knew that these were the guys to convert my van to a cam per. From the listening and discussing what I needed that would work for me and my family to the execution and final finish was a pleasure. It was great with these guys creating a forever holiday van for my young family as I felt involved and my choices adhered to and respected. A lot of converters in the area are “take it or lump it” but the flexibility of Onlinevancarandbus was really what drew me to them and wow did they deliver! Everyone working there is the peak of professional and just lovely people too. Could not recommend enough! Thank you team!

Absolutely delighted with the van we purchased from TMS. Steve and Debbie made us feel very welcome and went above and beyond to make sure the transaction went  smoothly. Would have no hesitation in buying another vehicle from TMS and would certainly recommend them to others. Thank you so much Steve and Debbie.

Mike & Dee Gilbert

So I chose a car I thought would be good for work from auto trader and turned up to view it at this smallish showroom. The moment me and the other half walked i n we were greeted by a friendly couple who made us feel welcome from the off. No hard sale and super easy to negotiate with. A fair price was agreed with no fuss. They even put a couple of things right after I rang them in the week before picking the car up. Super helpful and super friendly. On the day I picked the car up I was helped with the tax and sorting out the logbook (V5). It was honestly a real pleasure buying a car from them. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. And yes, the coffee was very nice.

Trev Fisher

We recently purchased a Ford transit custom van from Steve & Debbie. We had been after one for so long and are absolutely delighted with it. The service given b y both of them. Is second to none, friendly, welcoming and so helpful in assisting us with purchasing the van of our dreams. Amazing experience, we were made so welcome and so we're our children. Can't rate them highly enough. If you're after a van this is the place to go!

I've just bought a van from this company. The service was first class. Friendly and professional. Really pleased with the van. Would definitely recommend. 

Sandra Barritt

We have recently bought a car from this charming family. They looked after us so well. Nothing was too much trouble. Steve kept me well informed so that it wasn 't sold before we got there . They were able to do the part exchange there and then ( even the tax )so we didn't have to make a second journey to pick it up. We met nearly all the family and felt part of it too. It's so lovely dealing with them at such a stressful time as changing a car. They even checked in with us a couple days later. Excellent service and will definitely be using them in the future.

Katherine Maw

It was a pleasure to have purchased from an honest salesman or should I say team , this is how a family business should be run . Mike was very honest from the f irst time we spoke over the phone in which I purchased without viewing , it’s nice to know you can still trust people on first judgement. Great vehicle so far and would not hesitate on purchasing another in the future.

Lee Mullen

Excellent level of service given throughout my entire visit. Honest and open valuations for P/A and the same for sales. No hard sell. Would highly recommended!  Very happy indeed.

James Green

Very happy with the service I've received, very helpful and kind couple, family run business and they know what they are talking about, would recommend to anyon e wanting a car or van, 5 star every time.

Mike Grigg

Lovely family run dealership. Personal and professional, can't fault them. Would recommend 

Shane Ward

Steve and Debbie were nothing but helpful and friendly from the start. Generous with the deal they put together for us and the van we purchased was top quality,  high spec and yet within our budget. The communication between us was helpful and yet not pushy, really friendly people who helped with all aspects of the sale even entertaining our 6 year old . The coffee was amazing as well 👌. Many thanks guys

we couldn't be happier with the van itself, and we would like to thank you again for all your help and hard work in acquiring the van.the service you provided w as second to none especially driving to somerset to deliver the vehicle.

Marshall metal fabrications: somerset

I recently required a vehicle with a very specific spec. Having to make a swift decision over the phone and place a deposit, and travel from London to Christchu rch, Steve said I wouldn’t be disappointed. He was spot on, the vehicle was better than described, and I could not have met a more polite, friendly bunch of people. Even picked me up from the station, and gave me a jacket to protect me from the inclement weather! 5 stars all round, and the vehicle was a dream to make the 3.5hour journey home. Will always recommend TMS group in the future. Dan


Message: I bought a Nissan quashqui from this garage which is absolutely amazing! I would definitely recommend buying a vehicle from this garage, Steve and Debb ie made this process quick and very easy.

lynn rudman

A great experience all around. Steve went out of his way to get the perfect van for me and the whole process was smooth and professional.

Andy Brown 6 days ago Superb family run dealership, who were a pleasure to deal with, and couldn't have been anymore helpful at any point durin g the purchase of my new van. I live 195 miles away from this place so needed to do the deal in one visit - Steve offered a part-ex deal based on photos of my old van and didn't quibble when I arrived on site, and Debbie got the finance sorted before hand so there was no hanging about once we'd done the deal. These guys could teach every single main dealer in the country a thing or two! Wouldn't hesitate to use them again despite the distance involved Thanks Steve, Debbie and Mike for all your help, it was an absolute pleasure doing business!

Andy brown

Craig walker review I recently bought a Ford Ranger Wildtrak from TMS Group. Experience was very good right from the first phone call. I dragged my wife  and 2 young kids out to Ringwood to view the truck and we were very much welcomed by Steve & Debbie. They have great offices with lots of toys to keep the kids entertained. The vehicle was well described with good photos, Steve was low-pressure and very helpful. I bought the vehicle and picked it up a week later where we were as equally welcomed. All in all a very good truck-buying experience, would highly recommend and will return for future vehicles.

5 out of 5 stars - Excellent service, no pressure at all & everything went very smoothly.

Hi, all at online van car and bus. Thanks again for the excellent service I received when buying my first van. It was a perfect, stress free experience.  The van was just right for me and my family. See you again for my next van.

Jamie davy

Steve, Please see below Testimonial as promised. “Buying a vehicle can be a nerve racking time, buying long distance can be even worse! – But not wi th onlinevancarandbus.com. From the first initial email to final cup of tea when handing over the documents, Steve and Deb put your mind at ease every step of the way. Steve has almost endless patients and answered numerous questions, provided extra photos and even went clambering around the vehicle on a Sunday with a tape measure to ensure that it was exactly what I wanted. I couldn’t fault him, the vehicle is in tip top condition and is everything that it was advertised to be, the price was fair and Steve was totally transparent and flexible with the T&C’s, deposits and even secured new windows for me, all ready and shiny for collection. I got a good deal and I am totally delighted with my purchase. I would whole heartedly recommend onlinevancarandbus.com, and I wouldn’t think twice about using them again. Kind regards Jim

Jim Hancock

Many thanks for the great service we had from the guys, yet again a lovely car supplied by you.cheers guys, 5 star!!
