Recently bought a car from NR Bates, excellent service. Unfortunately I had to take the car back in for a few problems. No problems jobs are all done well and in a timely manner. Everyone here I would say are professionals and don’t want to tip you off, unlike many I could name.



Excellent service all round, relaxed and knowledgeable. It was an absolute pleasure to buy my car from Aubrey and the team at N R Bates & Sons.



Great service from start to finish on the purchase of a Hyundai i20, the car was presented in immaculate condition and the part exchange price we got was very good too. Aubrey was polite, professional and never pushy. Thank you



I received an amazing service. I even got my car ready before than it should be. When the car was ready, I was late to pick it up because of traffic conditions and they wait for me and delivered to me a very nice service in a peaceful atmosphere

No pushy salesman. Just decent cars and reasonable prices. Great reputation. Not had a second hand car for years so felt anxious, but could see only the higher end well maintained

Great service from start to finish, good price on car and part exchange, would highly recommend



Long standing business, and it's easy to see why they have lasted for so many years. Salesman could not have been more helpful, got a very fair deal and came away satisfied with everything.Would happily recommend N.R. Bates and will be returning when the car is due for a service.

Purchased 2014 Mercedes C Class from NR Bates in August 2021. Family business. Visiting the showroom you will see an impeccably restored Model T. From beginning to end straight forward dealing from this company. I enjoyed doing business with them. Car as described in advert- excellent condition new MOT and checked over Car runs beautifully. Thoroughly recommend and I would buy from this dealer again



I saw it on the Sunday, bought it on the Monday and picked it up on Wednesday. The whole process trouble free. Aubrey the salesman was helpful and there was no pressure to buy. If their service provision is as good I’ll be one happy bunny. What this space!

NickR-401, November 2021

I Purchased a Jaguar XF in November 2021. The whole buying experience was first class and I was offered a competitive p/x price. The service I received from Aubrey and Richard and the mechanics was second to none. The whole atmosphere of N R Bates and Son is one of friendliness and professionalism. Its nice to deal with genuine car enthusiasts and also a well established Sheffield company. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them, and will certainly be returning for my next car.

Bought a used C200 in November great car,great treatment from Aubrey(Sales) love the car!!Unfortunately in January on a routine service it was discovered that the rear subframe was damaged so I took a slow drive to SRBates and without a quibble they took the car in and replaced frame within a week!! When I picked it up they had gone the extra mile and even replaced brake pads and washed the car as well!! What an outstanding company to deal with!! Customer care Par excellence!!

As with all small, independent dealerships, N R Bates make sure the customer comes first. The difference with these guys is that they are obviously motor enthusiasts, which is apparent as soon as you walk through the showroom doors and see the classic cars lined up. The result is a very personal, professional service, with no pressure or additional products being pushed onto the buyer. I was very happy with the whole experience, and would recommend buying your next car from here to anyone.

I took my 2017 Porsche 911 Targa S to NR Bates and Son. I enquiring about a slight knocking noise that had occurred around the drivers side front wheel arch. As soon as I step out of my car I was greeted by I very nice well spoken man who introduced him self as Richard and then followed on to say how can I help. From my point of view this was brilliant service, probably the bast I have ever seen after being in the motor trading and mechanical business for over 50 years. Shortly after I had greeted Richard I started to discuss the problem with him and before I had finished he knew exactly what the problem was and how to fix it. His professionalism amazed me. Shortly after discussing the problem with Richard I handed over the key and he got stated straight away on the problem that had occurred. While my car was being inspected I took a seat in NR Bates and Sons showroom, it wasn't the biggest showroom I have ever seen but never the less it was kept Immaculately clean. The floor looked so clean you could have eaten of it, while walking round the showroom inspection some of the finest examples of cars I have ever seen, I stubbled upon a coffee machine and at the time I was rather sleep after driving from 6:00am I decided to indulge my self with a coffee. Using the coffee machine was very straight forward, after making my coffee I took my first sip and I was mesmerised how amazing the coffee tasteD. I was very pleased. After about a 10 minuet waight I was greeted by Richard again and he informed my with some excellent news about my car, He said that it was an extremely simple repair and is going to cost me next to nothing, I was thrilled with this news. Shortly after Richard handed me my keys back and a drove off extremely happy with the customer service provided and would highly recommend the business.
