There wasn’t anything else they could have done. I was called in advance, reminded of my appointment, kept up to date with progress and completed on time.

Because I was

Service

I was very satisfied

Service

Just to repeat the above answer, everybody was very helpful, courteous and knew what they were doing.

Service

From entry into Barrett's and exit you are made to feel welcome and important to them. Staff are always friendly, courteous and knowledgeable about services and products which only goes to boost customer satisfaction.

Service

Told the service was part of service package and then was charged. The car wasn’t washed properly and whilst I have been sent a valeting email finding Tom wto use it is problematic. Plus the washer fluid wasn’t filled as is bnormally done on a servic

Service

Very satisfied, I have already set Ashford as my default service center on BMW Portal.The servicw team were ever so friendly and took me seriously

We always get good service from Patrick the service manager

We were told exactly how long it would take, and they then took us in to Ashford and picked us up when the car was ready.

No concept of customer care. Everything done is at the convenience of Barretts.

I was very happy with the whole process. The staff were friendly and approachable. While waiting I was made very welcome with coffee and biscuits (always a winner).

Service

I've visited Barrats Ashford twice now, the first time for some warranty repair work and the second for the first service. I was very pleased with the service provided on both ocassions. Sam in particular was very helpful during my warranty repair.

Service

Just one niggle - very slow call back when checking on car progress

Service

Lack of information. I had to call repeatedly to ascertain what was happening. The individual dealing with me went off on holiday without the courtesy of letting me know. Generally a very uninspiring experience.

Service

Very happy

Service

Communication was an issue. Service and cost were good. Additional items were brought to my attention by text to which I immediately confirmed. This wasn't picked up til the next day when I rang to check. What happened to the simple phone call day 1

Service

Service and work completed on time and within cost expectations

Service

My service manager Patrick was professional, respectful and friendly. Patrick kept me informed during the service of my vehicle and explained in full, the work completed on the car. I believe that Patrick is an asset to the company.

Service

Service OK, sunroof blind repair OK. Car not washed or cleaned inside. Form listing work done was correct in detail (apart from washing/cleaning) but had the wrong reg. no. on it. Servicing video a waste unless there’s an issue you need to know about

Service

Even though I didn't have a booking, the staff on reception made my experience enjoyable.

Helpful and knowledgeable customer facing staff and my services have gone exactly as expected.

Service

Always polite and helpful

Returned a call, phone wasn’t answered promptly.

Service

Satisfied, it was effortless to drop off and collect

Service

Took a little longer than first advised, but did what was needed & let me know when car would be ready

Service

Excellent friendly service. Ashley Baldry, the sales executive who dealt with me was knowledgeable, friendly, down to earth and genuine.

Service

Service was all fine, cleaning of the car could have been better water marks on body and the boot was not hoovered

Service

Efficient approach

Service

I was given a loan car, It wasn’t as high spec as mine, but was brand new, so I got to see a few new innovations, heads up display, The infotainment also worked. I think giving fairly new models for a day or so to customers is a very nice touch.

Service

8 is a good score

Service

An efficient booking in system, a good and free pick-up and return scheme, good telephone contact on progress of servicing and repair, although I have to say the paperwork from a service or repair is somewhat confusing.

Service

very good service in terms of dealing with the staff, loan of car etc. However, I was disappointed that I had to take my new BMW 430 back to have a squeaky seat fixed - and more so the the fault has recurred and I now have to take it back again.

Service

The repair was conducted to my satisfaction.

Service

friendly atmosphere

Service

Service

Very satisfied. They are one of the best I have experienced. My only issue is the work carried out was not covered by warranty and I am taking this up with BMW UK Customer Services.

Service

They handled the rather unusual noise coming from the front not in a dismissive manner but professionally. The communication from the service desk was excellent and the efforts assured me I was working with a garage integrity.

Good general experience, but poor service by initial representative and a mark was left on the bonnet too.

I can only reiterrate my comments in question one

Helpful and informative, despite my initial statements (see answer 1). Kept me informed of what was happening throughout the process and corrected the problems that occurred, quickly and without fuss, when informed.

Sales

Professional and friendly throughout the process.

Sales

Dexter kept in contact a lot

Sales

There were some glitches in explaining the pricing of the offers especially the additional insurance options. I was sent an out of date price list in July which omitted increases and made reconciling offers difficult

Sales

Michael was courteous and helpful throughout

Sales

The service offered by Barretts Ashford was second to none absolutely fantastic. Previously I was employed with Audi and never saw or encountered the service I encountered with the centre.

Sales

Excellent sales representative

Sales

I’m a single women, and came along to the showroom,Shah Chowdhury made me feel at ease,I was not intimidated or made to feel like a silly woman. I can’t tell you how much that meant to me,I was very nervous on arrival and didn’t feel that when I left

Sales

Lovely showroom. Always very welcoming. The receptionists do a great job.

Sales

Smooth and seamless process

I am always impressed by the professionalism of the staff I have dealt with.

Overall it was a great experience from start to finish. Again shah was so helpful! It never felt like I was being pressured into purchasing my car.

Sales

Excellent service by shah

Sales

Flawless; Gary made the process easy and enjoyable and we are thrilled with the car and aftersales support we have received so far

Sales

How trouble agreeing a deal without being pressured to take finance when I didn’t want finance.

Sales

My local BMW Centre in Ashford have been 100% professional from day one.

Sales

I dealt with Dexter from the day go. He was easy to speak to and explain what we needed. His Canadian accent was excellent and made ordering the vehicle even more homely rather than a business deal. Hats off to Dexter.

Sales

Again friendly, helpful staff, no time constraints, fantastic expierence
