About Us

Welcome to SM Autos Ltd, established in 2006 and based in Chichester, West Sussex. We are a small independent used car specialist who believe in offering the very highest level of vehicle preparation and customer service as standard. There are no pushy salesmen here.

We pride ourselves in sourcing only the best original and honest quality used cars available and include the following as standard on all our vehicles for your added piece of mind : 
  • HPI checked and approved with confirmation certificate report
  • Comprehensive independent mechanical and electrical inspection
  • Serviced according to the cars schedule with new cam belt and water pump fitted if required
  • A full years MOT upon agreed sale if less than 6 months remaining
  • 6 months extendable nationwide parts and labour warranty for cars over £2500
  • Warranties are available for cars under £2500, please enquire.
  • Full professional valet to the highest standards
  • Any AA / RAC type inspection welcome
Viewings: All viewings are by prior appointment only as not all vehicles are on site. Out of hours viewing is available. We deliberately keep our overheads as low a possible in order to provide the best possible value to our customers. Our service is therefore on a one to one basis. That way we can ensure the vehicle you are coming to see is fully prepared and that we have set aside sufficient time for you to inspect the car, paperwork and accessories at your leisure, including a test drive. International buyers / enquiries are also welcome having sold vehicles to satisfied customers in the Czech Republic, France, Montenegro, South Africa and Spain. On several occasions we have sold vehicles to satisfied customers who have only viewed the car on our website.

Part Exchange & Direct Purchase: We accept all makes of part exchange and will also buy your car subject to approval, please call or click on the 'Part exchange' link above and complete the details as requested and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Or let us sell your car for you : We regularly undertake to sell used cars for customers taking away the associated hassles of selling privately, not only saving you time and effort but also returning higher values than can be achieved on a trade-in basis or using such sites as webuyanycar. Naturally you retain ownership until sold, the vehicle is fully insured with us under our trade policy so you can cancel your insurance and receive a road tax rebate pending sale, plus you have the benefit of utilising our advertising, payment options and garage facilities. If you would like to know more then please call or email.

As part of our value added service via our trusted partners, we are also able to arrange the following options for your vehicle:
  • Chip or ECU remap for increased performance and/or economy with 30 day money back guarantee
  • Colour coded parking sensors with audible and visual display for all vehicles
  • Sun protection / privacy glass installation
  • Tow bar supply and fitment
  • Bluetooth hands free phone systems
  • Satnav installations
Aftersales:  Working with trusted partners, we offer a full range of after sales services including Coachwork, Mechanical & Trim work.

Number plates: We own a range of number plates which are for sale, including F4B SM, F4B AM, N100MEY, YWV93, TIL2440 and 793 SNN. Please enquire if of interest.

Vehicle finder service: In addition to selling stock vehicles we also welcome the opportunity to source a used car for you. Over the years we have sourced with prior commitment vehicles ranging from Aston Martins to Volvos. If we do not have the particular car you are looking for at the current time, please contact us with your vehicle requirements and we will ensure you receive our full attention.

Please note we do not operate an organised distance selling scheme as defined by The Consumer Contracts (Cancellation, Information and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013. Therefore, even if you choose not to view your vehicle at our premises prior to purchase, you will not be entitled to cancel your order under any 14 day cancellation period. All other statutory rights remain unaffected.   

We look forward to receiving your enquiries and you becoming one of our many satisfied customers.
