You’re an absolute star! I have to say that this is our 4th vehicle through NVG and as always it’s been seamless and a pleasure working with you all. You are all so helpful and the transition from placing an order to delivery is second to none! You should all be proud of the business you work in.
You could not get a better company to work with than NVG - Grant and his team are an absolute joy to work with - be straight with them, and you will get the same back!
The process was quick and simple, I found out that my application was accepted within 24 hours, paid my refundable deposit and within 3 weeks I had a new vehicle outside my property, I even had a choice of colours.
I have known the senior management of NVG for many years during the course of our business together, upon retiring I lost my company car required a short term vehicle - NVG secured a beautiful BMW X5. I will be sorry to see it go, however I look forward to replacing it with a brand new one.
Always easy and simple to deal with.
Grant is an absolute gem, anyone wants a car him & NVG are the way forward. You have my business always.
I have now had 3 cars from NVG and each time the process has been so smooth and straight forward. Grant and the team are a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending him in the future. If you need a lease vehicle these are the guys to speak to.
Great service all the way through, first time I was in contact with Grant he worked magic for me and each time I have since swapped the car over Grant himself and all the team have been brilliant.
After being messed about from others companies. I managed to get in touch with Grant for a new vehicle. The whole process was smooth and no crazy amount of initial payment. I only payed refunded deposit & I managed to get the vehicle within 15 to 18 days..
Love the team here - have 4 cars from them and great service!!
I have been working with NVG for 2 years and they have consistently provided an excellent service to myself and our fleet of drivers. Knowing that I’m able to rely on Marc and the team to discuss with our drivers their individual requirements, and deal with all the initial negotiation & specification directly with them makes my job significantly easier. For a one stop solution for vehicle requirements I would certainly recommend NVG.
