About Us

A Lifelong Passion

Howe Motors was established in 1994, although the owner was showing a keen interest in cars much earlier than that, and has pursued his love of fast cars all his life.

This love of cars affects his choice of the stock he buys, and he is particularly fond of Land Rover, BMW and Mercedes. His real love, however, seems split between the old Datsun 120, the Toyota RAV 4 and the Land Rover Defender. And his wife, of course!

At Howe Motors we pride ourselves on our extensive range of high quality used cars, 4x4's and vans. We buy quality stock from traders all over the UK, and prepare the vehicles to the hilt before sale.

We have our own fully equipped workshop with two highly experienced technicians, although MOT's are done impartially at a nearby test centre. We have a separate fully equipped valeting bay with typically four excellent valeters and detailers, and finally, a very knowledgeable sales team of three that are here to provide the highest level of expertise and advice when finding the right car or van for you.

We are based in Barry, South Glamorgan, just 10 miles West of Cardiff on the South Wales coast. Situated 5 minutes walk from Barry railway station, about 5 miles from Cardiff (Wales) airport, and about 10 miles off the M4 motorway, we are easy to get to, no matter how far you are travelling.

And if you are travelling any great distance, it makes sense to use our Reserve it NOW service. A simple phone call to deposit £100 via your credit card will reserve the car for you, allowing you to come and view the car at your leisure. And if, after viewing the car,  you decide it is not for you, the money is 100% refundable. For more details, so our "Reserve it NOW" page.

We Sell Everywhere!

Thanks to the Internet, we sell all over the world! OK, maybe not a huge amount abroad, but in the last few years we've sent cars to New Zealand, Malta, Cyprus, Canada, Kenya, Afghanistan, and the USA. And probably more.

We also sell to customers all over the United Kingdom, plus Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

The map on the right shows about 40% of the cars that we have sold in the UK between around 2010 and 2017*. The magic of the internet allow you to click on the map and view a detailed map provided by Google that allows you to zoom in and see exactly what make and model we have sold in each case.

*Weird numbers - the original site has gone, so this has been transferred hastily to Google maps. I'll work on it!
