A lifelong passion
Howe Motors was established in 1994, although the owner was showing a keen interest in cars much earlier than that. As a teenager any spare hours were delightfully spent driving and modifying Datsun 120Y's. The rest of the time was spent at work and the motor industry was the natural choice. Ceri gained invaluable experience as a parts manager and mechanic. Later with a little money to invest he started buying and selling cars on a small scale. This was the beginnings of Howe Motors and it evolved from there, with a common sense philosophy of buying good cars and having happy customers.
Today 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 get them in tip top condition 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.
