|Started this process in Feb 07, purchased in Mar 07, picked up in Jul 07 a V46 N reg leather with 41K. Algy proved to be an honest and reliable individual available to answer any/all questions. Sveta, Kerry and Deana are all stars, nothing is to much for them to answer or advise. I have an excellent vehicle and I will repeat this process. I can fully recommend anyone to buy through the import scheme. Yes there is a large deegree of trust but nothing to fear, should you wish to save money and purchase a bargain then this is the way to do it. I was on holiday when the car arrived in Bristol but was able to secure all of my needs on the internet from the Canaries. I will gladly answer any questions from potential buyers!

|My wifes Figaro was delivered to us in Northumberland over the weekend.We ordered it several months ago and trusted Algys to deliver on their promise. We are delighted.The car is immaculate and the missus is over the moon.I would recommend Algys without hesitation.Their excellent reputation is well deserved.
| Matt Shelton - Monday 26th of February 2007 10:20:15 PM
|If you want a decent imported vehicle then look no further than Algys Autos import scheme. From the initial emailed pics to the delivery of your vehicle you cannot fault their service. All questions you might have are answered swiftly by Sveta and her team. My Bongo is supurb better than expected and fully loaded.It seems like a shot in the dark sending money when all you have seen is a picture but believe me its not. They are definately the cheapest and best quality.
Dont believe me then mail me firstname.lastname@example.org.

|Due to the highly professional way in which our contact and business
dealings with Algy's have been conducted, I felt the need to send an endorsement of their offer to refund deposits, on a no quible basis.
Unfortunately we were unable to fulfil our Figaro purchase, due to an unforseen potential redundancy.
It is always a sharp intake of breath when parting with money, no matter how large or small. Where potential delivery is some months in the future, indeed we were approximately 4 months in the waiting.
However with a clear and concise cancellation, our 1k deposit was refunded in full within 4 days of our phone call. My wife and I were delighted, however regret having to pass on the emerald green Figaro she had set her heart on.
Circumstances change, we can always come back, and buy with confidence.
| Alison Sheldon - Saturday 17th of February 2007 08:04:30 PM
|Did not buy through Algys as we found another one elsewhere which we could take possession of earlier, however, once we had paid the search fee, we had loads of potential vehicles emailed to us. And when we cancelled the search, we received a full refund of the £350 to our paypal account within the hour! Very Impressed!
| Terry Boyle - Tuesday 19th of December 2006 01:49:37 PM
|Well I have just collected my 3rd vehicle supplied by Algy, all of them still owned and used by me. The latest, a Granvia had less than 10,000 miles on the clock and it shows in the condition. It's as near immaculate as you can get in a car thats been driven..
The process under Algy's control was fantastic, Barratt shipping are stares particularly Kerri. Hallen did a great job and the total cost was with a few pounds of Algy's initial estimate. The only bad point was UK Customs who were incompetent slow and non responsive. Typical civil service department, taking over 30 days to get the vehicle cleared. Not Algy's fault totally customs fault.
|Pink Mouse - Sunday 05th of November 2006 08:02:39 AM
Never had so much fun sitting down!
My advice is simply get one BUT get a good one. My friends Pink Figaro was cheaper..and it shows! Bad decision and she now regrets it. Paying out to try and get it as good as mine. Simple advise is you cant buy a good Figaro cheap...it pays to get one that all the hard work on doing one up has been done for you so you don't have the headache and expense. I bought mine from Figs4u. Totally dedicated Figaro dealership. When I went to their place they had over 30 on show. I was in heaven! I tried a few other places first and saw many pink nissan figaro for sale but Non were a patch on Figs4u. the others either did it in their spare time....ahhhhh or just cut corners to make a sale. Go there and you will see the cars being fully re-built and they are really friendly to boot.
Take my advice and geta lovely wonderful Figaro.....and see figs4u if you want a good one!
| Richard Pierson - Tuesday 31st of October 2006 04:00:44 PM
|I collected my Bongo from Hallen Imports mid October. It is just as promised - probably in even better condition than I thought. It was a bit of a leap of faith to transfer money to bank accounts here and there on the basis of a few e-mails and pictures on the internet. I could see a vision of myself on Watchdog looking foolish, but no! Algy's came through with the goods on budget and on time. The vehicle is excellent. many thanks to all concerned at Algy's, Barratt Shipping and Hallen Imports. Thank-you!!
| Patrick Crushell - Sunday 29th of October 2006 04:48:26 PM
|Delighted with Algy's Autos for arranging the importation of my Mazda Bongo which i picked up last week here in Ireland. Everything went very smooth and car arrived to me even earlier than expected!!! Thanks Algy.
| Gyl Darnley - Thursday 26th of October 2006 10:31:56 AM
|Picked up our Toyota Hilux surf 4 x 4 last weekend and we are 'over the moon' with it. I must be honest and say that when my other half said that he was going to send someone (Algy's) money to look for a car for us in Japan and that we would be sent e-mails of prospective vehicles which we would purchase from a description and picture only, then to send the money up front for the purchase, shipping, collection and conversions, I thought he had completely lost the plot and was going through a mid life crisis!!! However, after a number of discussions with Algy's and lots of vehicles e-mailed to us they found 'the one' and he managed to convince me that eveything would be fine and we decided to proceed. It matched everything we had asked for and more and was well under budget. Vehicle arrived in England 7 weeks after purchase at Auction in Japan, only hold up then was SVA testing as they moved premises the week that our car arrived so that ended up taking a month - but things have settled down now apparently so should be quicker in future - only imported cars under 10 years old have to be SVA tested so wont apply to every vehicle. I must mention that you need to be prepared to wait longer than the stated time of 3 days for registration with your local DVLA office - ours took 9 days.
Finally (bet you were falling asleep weren't you!! ha ha) a massive thankyou to all involved - Algys, Kerrie at Barratt Shipping and Kellie and Dave at Hallen Imports, would recommend you to anyone wanting to import. Thankyou.
| Mark Williams - Monday 09th of October 2006 10:47:55 AM
|Wow, what a bizarre experience. Part with your money upfront, based upon some photographs from the web.e-mail. You take a leap of faith and hope you are not being ripped off. Well with Algys it is all upfront and totally honest, so don't worry as much as I did. To manage your budget look at all the detail, the information is there, from the initial commission to the mandatory SVA check, the shippping and import duties, the purchase price in Japan to the extras you ask for. You will deal with BSL for shipping, Algys and their agent for car choice and Hallen Imports for servicing, SVA etc. I hve to say that on each contact all the staff have been totally courteous and always helpful. After my first weekend of driving I am totally satisfied with the vehicle (Toyota Lucida Estima AERAS). Would I do it again with Algys? absolutely! Would I put up a positive recommendation and act as a referee? Absolutely!
| Jimmy Wilson - Sunday 01st of October 2006 05:49:15 PM
|I have been looking at the Mazda Bongo for a few months now but can't seem to make my mind up about grey imports. Algy seem to do the best deal and seem to have much lower mileage vans that other dealers. How are they able to offer such a good deal? Can any happy Bongo owners out there put my mind at rest?
Jimmy Wilson , Scotland
| Ian Harman - Friday 22nd of September 2006 08:36:05 PM
|Sent algy's an e-mail having decided to purchase my bongo through the import scheme - had reply in 5 minutes. Steady stream of potential purchases arriving to my laptop daily! Very impressed - only regret is that I didn't purchase my existing bongo this way.

|I collected my figaro from Dave at HIS and would just like to say a big thank to you to everyone. The whole process from start to finish was a dream, Algy & Lana, Kerry at Barratt Shipping & Dave always took the time to speak with me throughout.
I would recommend Algys Autos to anyone
|- Monday 28th of August 2006 03:30:49 PM
|I picked up my 2.8 LWB Paj just over a week ago. I'll start with some of the neg points. After a 300 mile trip to collect I found that it had been damaged on the rear near side wheel arch. This damage was not on the original photos that I was sent so happened somewhere between the transporting period and me picking it up. The reason it took nearly three months for me to collect it was Hallen had a back log of conversions and so mine had to be put into storage until that backlog was cleared. The total cost of the car on the road came to more than quoted or was hoping 620.00 to Hallen for the compulsory conversions and a basic service. This strangely enough did not cover draining & putting in anti freeze. Then on top of this was 12 months road tax and 38.00 DVLA registration fee. As the cost of the car was rising I did not opt for the warranty.
It pays to shop around for things like alarms, radios, tow bars etc as I saved 130 for a cat 1 alarm fully fitted over what Hallen wanted to charge me. And also saved 120 for a tow bar.
Now for the plus points
I can not though fault the process of Algy's Autos all questions answered quickly by Algy himself. Kerrie at Barrett Shipping was extremely very helpful. The registration process was virtually all done for you just take the papers that had already been filled out to your local DVLA & wait about 5 days.
The car was a dream to drive back on the return 300 miles, no rattles or concerning noises. Everything was as it should be. The engine /compartment looked as though it had just left the factory. Underneath its so shiny that you could virtually eat you diner from it (well would not go that far but you get my drift)
I have been very open and honest about my experience and yes I would certainly purchase from Algy's Autos again. It does take a lot of trust handing over money to someone you have never met.
Yes even after the extra cost I know I saved myself a packet compared to forecourt prices over here. I got a lovely car although slightly damaged but I am still happy.
| John Hoey - Wednesday 12th of July 2006 08:15:19 PM
|Have recently collected my Pajero 2.8 Exceed. WOW, what a fantastic car. Drove it 800 miles to home. It behaved impeccably.It would be easy to believe it was a new vehicle, not a '95 model. It was exactly as described, immaculate.
OK, not a conventional way of buying a car, but as Algy says "We have a system, and it works" Very professional, very efficient. I wholeheartedly recommend him and his team.
If anyone is still undecided please e-mail me

|I stumbled on this site by complete accident and found it intriguing to say the least.
To find out more details I left my contact number on the site and within two hours received a phone call from Algy. After Algy went through the process with me I took a leap of faith and decided to go ahead telling him exactly what I wanted and the budget which I was on.
Within two days they had sourced a silver and blue 2.8 LWB Pajero Exceed and E-Mailed me the photos of it further stating that apart from minor cosmetics all that it needed was a Professional valet.
on the 19/05/2006 I succesfully purchased this vehicle and have just found out 08/06/06 that already it is nearly two weeks into its journey from Japan.
Well this is fantastic efficiency at its best.
Hopefully the rest of the process goes as smoothly as the beginning. I shall post another comment when I pick the vehicle up.
Well done to all at Algy's.
Ill keep you posted.

In discussion with Algy's company at this moment and looking forward to identifying the right vehicle.

|Hi to all at Algy's.|
Picked up a beautiful
lapis grey Nissan Figaro from Bristol just before X-mas.What a stunner!! Bought
for my wife and I since haven't had a look-in!
Driving back to London
up the M4 was an experience in itself with a lot of interest and waving as
I passed other cars and visa versa.
I enjoyed every mile and was
suprised at the quality of the drive...Needless to say my wife was
gobsmacked.Everyone who's not in the know believes it to be a brand new
car,a testimony to you guys in preparing it for us.
To anyone reading
this,you can be rest assured you
will be dealing with in a professional
outfit who deliver what they say on the website.
Thanks again guys for
a great product and great service.
|Guy Ghani - Mon Jan 23 15:02:31 2006
|I have bought an Estima using Algy's import
scheme. It's a very nice car, the price was very good - everything infact
you want. Buying with Algy is a partnership, and as such it's built on
trust. Algy is a helpful man. He contributes to owners of these (and
other) vehicels not just his customers. To me that demonstrates integrity.
He gives good advice to those who are neither his customers nor are ever
likely to be.|
But Algy is a man who says what he means. Always polite,
but never extravagent. He doesn't waste your time sending huge amolunts of
e-mails, or spend hours on the phone talking to you. He will advise when
needed but he does not push or cajole you. You are in charge. He treats
you as an adult. He behaves like an adult. You make your own mind
So who should buy with Algy? Anyone who wants to buy a car without
the incessant jabbering of a salesman. A bit like a personal shopper.
Those who need a lot of chat and talk and "selling to" may feel
To me buying a car represents a big monetary investment.
I am happy to base that decision on trust. But don't take my word for it,
check out Algy's contributions on www.estimaownersclub.com or
www.smartgroups.com/estima sites and judge for yourself.

|I,ve been the proud owner of my baby blue Nissan
figaro ( Or Tink As she,s fondly known by the family! )for six months now
& want the "whole team" at Algys to know how pleased proud &
impressed I am, not only with the car but also the level of commitment
& care from all concerned. Nothing has been too much trouble, emails
or any other concerns have been dealt with quickly & efficiently. Like
many others I took a leap of faith when I decided to buy from Algy but
wouldnt hesitate to recommend anyone thinking of buying from his company
to go ahead without hesitation. Even now I feel I could call or email
& ask them anything & would definately use them again when we
replace our family car. Special thanks of course to Algy &
Svetlana,Tom & Deena in Bristol...You,re all doing a grand job!

|Hi, I collected my Toyota Granvia a fortnight
ago and thought I would leave some feedback.|
On the plus side; # Algy
and his team are trustworthy and you can have faith in sending off money
to Cypus bank accounts!
#The team are available and responsive and
humoured my pestering.
# The car is overall in very nice condition and
On the minus side;
# The car took 3 months to arrive
and although I don't believe this can be typical, it was inconvenient
Communication of the fact that the car would not make its fisrt arrival
date was not forthcoming and I had to chase the shipping co for info.
The car has one nasty scrape on the bottom of the door which I was not
able to deternine the severity of from the auction chit.
# Algy has
moved his servicing from Lodway to Car and Truck Bristol who seem fine but
are a bit more expensive.
# Paperwork, the personal imprt scheme
requires the owner to go to their local DVLA centre with a lot of docs to
get a registration and I am not sure that is clear in the site write
Overall, I did save a few hundred pounds and have a nice MPV
and would use Algy again, forewarned is forarmed though.

holliday weekend from Keith in Bristol and drove it 230 miles back home,it
drives like a new car, realy pleased with it.|
A big thankyou to all at
algys Autos/BSL shipping and Lodway service station.
|Dave Hollins - Mon Aug 22
|I have just taken delivery of my new 3.0
hilux Surf...and it is fantastic!|
Having looked around at local dealers,
they were asking around 10k for a 1996 model. With Algy and the team at
Lodway Service Station in B ristol, I have got a Surf that is in excellent
condition, with low miles and on the road with Cat 2 alarm, full service,
new cambelt, undesealed and towbar for around 2k less than my local
dealers (without all these extras!!!)
I was very apprehensive about
buying a vehicle I've never seen from someone I've never met. Algy allowed
me to use the personal import scheme by paying a 1000 deposit up front
and the balance on collection. This was a very fair compromise...and I
haven't been disappointed.
From what I can tell...Algy picks the
best quality vehicles and that is why he is confident you'll be
The only downside of my experience was that it took a long
time to get my vehicle due to delays in shipping and then a paperwork
mistake by Customs which delayed registering it.
That said, overall
I think Algy offers excellent value for money. My Surf is a real beauty.
Keith and his team at Lodway Service Station have done a great job
servicing it and fitting a number of extras.
Would I use Algy and
Lodway Service Station again? YES!
Feel free to contact me if you
have any specific questions about the whole process.
and Sveta and Keith.

were at the Gym but no! you just carried on our conversation, now that is
what I call dedication.|
When I explained to my Wife that I was going to
send someone I had never met a list of my requirements for a vehicle which
he would purchase on my behalf, then send him a deposit and wait a number
of weeks until it arrived she thought I was either drunk! Or completely
I explained that if I was making a mistake I would suffer in more
ways than one, but I would like to take this opportunity to say how
delighted WE are with our Surf.

|Hi Algy. |
Just thought it was about time I
sent you a note to say THANK YOU for my hilux Surf!
Sorry it has been a
while, but as soon as I had picked it up from Keith on Sat 28th May, I
went on leave on the Monday to Spain.
However, now that I've been back
for a couple of weeks, I have been able to "play" with the car.....and
it's GREAT fun!!!
As I said, many many thanks for the efficient
service you ALL have given me, and for the painless way in which you make
importing a vehicle possible!!
The car is in very good condition for
it's age and the mileage was a little lower than expected to boot!
to the level of service you give to your customers, if I can do anything
in return for you, such as vouching for the said service in way of either
a testimonial or directly with anyone who wishes to speak to one of
your"very satisfied customers", please contact me and I would happily
endorse your wares!
Again Algy, many many thanks and all the very

honest, accurate and can be relied on. Any problems or questions are dealt
with immediately in a professional manner.If any one is thinking a using
Algy's sevices, and are holding back , I would be more than happy to share
my experience with you.You will not be disapointed. |

|I've just recently taken delivery of my 1993
Mazda MX-5 S-Ltd. It's a fabulous car in really good condition, much
better (and a bit cheaper) than the ones I looked at in the UK. The
contact I had with Algy, Sveta, Tom in Bristol and the Japanese auction
agent was wonderfully helpful, friendly, knowledgable and professional.
Having considered other ways of buying and importing Japanese auction
vehicles, I think Algy's Autos offers the best and most stress-free
experience. I would recommend them unreservedly to anyone wanting a good

|It's nearly 2 years since we imported our
Estima through you Algy... Just thought I'd let you know that after 25000
miles I've finally had to replace an inner tube! Otherwise, she's gone on
and on with no problems! Best investment in a vehicle I've made.

|Just started the process of importing a 2.8
Super Exceed up to now all questions answered very quickly and all seem
very efficient.Was worried about partingn with 1000 deposit but Algy
assures me if I am not delighted with the car he will refund my deposit
thats what I call commitment to the customer.|
Pajero arrives end of
month will post comment when process completed.

|Having owned a bonded car in Cy, we were
caught when Cy joined the EU and demanded all cars to pay an iniqitous
Duty for release, and knowing of Algy's expertise in re-imports contacted
him. Both he and keith have a well organised system that eventually gets
round even some of the C & E inport problems; at one point I thought
our car would end up stuck in the sea between Cy an UK. Many, many thanks
indeed to both of you folk and your groups who actually know what they are
doing, not always going by the book.|

|We would like to thank Algy and 'The Team'
for their superb service on supplying us with our first Pajero, which we
have just collected from Keith at Lodway Services.|
What started off
initially as a leap of faith, i.e parting with 1000, has materialised in
the form of a gleaming, immaculate vehicle - everything Algy had promised.
While we were waiting for the car to arrive in the UK, we visited a
number of other dealerships selling imported Pajeros, and were a little
bit concerned at the tatty state that the majority were in. We needn't
have worried as this vehicle knocks spots off them all!!
Thank you all
for your friendly, professional and prompt service.

How are you? I did call you once

I'm chuffed to bits with it.|
The photographs sent really were an

Algy, Sveta, Mr & Mrs Linton,
BSL Shipping and Keith at Lodway have all been stars, thankyou.
vehicle you have never seen or driven is dependent on trust and these good
people are cetainly trustworthy.

|We collected our Pajero 2800 Exceed from
Keith in Bristol on the 4th December 2004, (a bit of a character is Keith)
the whole import / registration process was really easy, all our queries
were answered promtly by both Algy & Sveta in Cypress and Keith in
Bristol. The car was as described in our telephone conversations with Algy
and we are really pleased with it. When the car was delivered to Keith in
Bristol we had additional work done, the car was undersealed, had a new CD
/ radio, tow bar and alarm / imobiliser, which was all carried out at a
very reasonable cost. The only problem we have now is fighting over which
one of us is going to drive it!|
I would happily recommend Algy's Autos
to anyone, take the plunge, you won't be disappointed!

|When I casually informed my wife I had placed
a deposit on a large silver van that was (at the time) sitting on a
dockside in Japan she looked at me slightly oddly. I then told her the
fella I had bought it from was somwhere in cyprus and the lady organising
the whole thing was on holiday in Latvia but not to worry as everyone was
'very helpful'. It was at this point that she phoned her Mother.|
is a rare thing for a man to feel so thoroughly vindicated as when we went
off to Lodway acouple of months later to collect our mighty Bongo! Not
only was the vehicle in beautiful condition but the various modifications
I had requested from Keith (a legend in our house) had been carried out
If you are considering a Bongo save yourself 2K and buy
one from Algy's. They are well organised, excellent at answering questions
and informative every step of the way about the various bits and pieces
that have to be done.
I can't recommend them highly
|saman De silva - Fri Dec 3
The way you help out of your
way to customers, non customers i really appiciate . Even i am not your
customer you help me lot with to sort out my problem.
Your company is
a shinning star in the trade with who only intend to sell their sale.
wish you all the best and happy to see you oneday,

|Well it is my second day as a nissan Figaro
owner/driver and I cannot tell you how fabulous it feels! It is such an
adorable car, I can't believe it is actually mine. I also can't believe
how easy and quick it all became a reality. I first saw a picture of the
car on Algy's website and it was love at first sight! After my intial
email to Algy and Svetlana, they were both very patient and extremely
helpful and were on hand whenever I had any questions. Also, Keith at
Lodway Service Station was such a delight and between Algy, Setlana, Keith
and Chris and Alan (who both worked on my Figaro when it arrived in
Bristol and did such a fabulous job getting it ready for our British
roads) I couldn't have wished for a more honest, dedicated and lovely team
of people to liaise with. I would truly recommend purchasing a car (or
anything for that matter!) from Algy and his team and can't thank them
|simon pannett - Mon Nov 15
|Just picked up my Bongo on Saturday 13/11/04.
Really please with the specs and condition of the vehicle. What started as
a leap of faith has ended with complete satisfaction-its nice to know
there are people around who really value the promises they give you. Well
done Algy. Keith & crew.|

|If you are thinking about buying a car when
you have only seen photos DO IT, this is the one of most professional
companies that I have ever dealt with (and thats in forty years).|
purchased a 1994 Toyota Surf that was better than discribed Communication
was almost instant, they must live to work and work to make sure that you
get exactly what you want. Dont think about it DO IT
|steve wood - Wed Nov 10
|thanks to all at algys auto and those in the
uk, ive bought a car before from another supplier and had nothing but
problems and this really put me off, not this time tho, the car was
exactly as algy had described it, the boys at bristol were superb and the
girls at bsl were more than helpful, if you're still undecided about
buying a car off the internet, this is the company to use|

|Douglas MacDowall - Tue Oct 5
|Algy, Keith, Sveta and all the rest of the
team behind the scenes, THANK YOU SO MUCH! Having had the nissan Figaro now for
around six weeks last weekend was my turn for picking up my car. A Toyota
Surf with attitude was requested and boy has it got attitude. Another very
very smooth transaction, no hassle , service 2nd to none! The one thing
I'm sad about is not having to head south to pick another car
Keith's a wonderful character and I thank him for getting
both the cars prepared with all the extras requested, that was very much
appreciated. Sounds like I'm kissing arse, but really they work their
butts off and deserve all the praise they get and more!
again guys, job done!!
|wayne thompson - Wed Sep 29
|hi algy, finally took delivery of my mazda bongo
and the toyota granvia we have been chatting about for ages. theres not much i
can add to the comments already posted on here, from the initial emaili
sent to algy with the follow up telephone call from algy and then the
contacts with andrew at barratt shipping who convinced me that all was
100% as it was made out and that as he personally drives a car he bought
from algy to go for it. the girls at barratt handled everything for me
with regard to the daunting task of dealing with uk customs and all the
cars were available the day after the boat came into bristol. ive now just
collected all three cars from keith and keith was the final piece of the
jigsaw having fitted cd players and everything. once again thanks to
allinvolved and i have just placed another order with algy on the strength
of these first 3 vehicles

|Derek Whitt - Fri Aug 27 15:00:54
|Truly an excellent service given by Algy and
his team. After looking around dealers in our area at various mpvs for
good quality, but they were all to pricy or had high mileage, we started
looking on the web such as ebay and other importers , but none seemed to
have the servicing and quality as Algys .we saw on his site a emina 2.2 td
jtop with all the extras and a very low mileage for less than 5000, the
car was very new on the site and only had one photo, but we contacted Algy
he told us all about the car and got us extra photos from japan i think.
we decided to buy the car which for us was a bit of a leap of faith buying
a car which you have only seen photos of , but the other testimonials
calmed our worries and after meeting someone else who had an import emina
, who said you wont have any problems with Algy.We then had lots of
correspondence form Algy telling us everything we needed to know and do at
our end. Kieth at Lodway contacted us the next day after ordering to let
us know what he would be doing to the car and if we needed any extras
doing whilst it was with him.We picked the car up from Kieth on Thurs 19
Aug , Kieth was excellent, showing us around the garage , what he does to
the cars when they come in , their were a lot of cars being serviced and
made ready, he showed us everything we needed to know about the car and
what had been done to it .We then had an excelent run home from Bristol to
Bedfordshire and the car was perfect. To end i can say that you get
quality and service form Algys . |

|Again I can only reiterate all the comments
made in this Guest Book. Algy and all his team seem to never sleep. Sveta
is certainly always there.|
I have no hesitation in recommending
|Douglas MacDowall - Tue Aug 17
|Having read through all the comments in the
guest book I'm struggling to add to any of the comments. All I can do is
back everyones positive remarks. We had ordered a Figaro up here in
Edinburgh untill I found Algys site, the order was cancelled tha tevening
and a new order placed with Algy. We saved 2000 on the price of the car,
she is a few months newer and had done 18,000 miles less. The whole
procedure wasa walk in the park, no hassle, she was in A1 condition and
goes like a dream. 7 hours from Bristol to Edinburgh ... what can I say.
Keep getting asked what kind of car she is, very reluctent to say as we
don't want evryone to have one in the area!|
Algy, Sveta, Keith and
all the lads have been fantastic in all departments. Very fast to reply,
very professional and great to deal with. Why can't all comapanies be like
I'm looking forward to 3 weeks time when out Toyota Surf comes
I would recommend Alygs Autos to anyone out there If you have
any initial doubts about ordering a car off the internet and never seeing
it.. don't bother you'll enjoy the whole procedure. I have already spread
the word north of the border. If you see a Lapis grey nissan Figaro in Edinburgh
the chances are it's me!
|Andrew Fielder - Sun Aug 15 06:53:08
|Yesterday I travelled from Swansea to collect
my superb Pajero 2.8 TD SWB from Keith at Lodway garage. His attitude was
typical of everyone involved in Algy's Autos. He was very helpful, warm
and welcoming. He took time to take me out in the vehicle and demonstrate
all the features. Special thanks for fitting the CD player and four
speakers (superbly done despite having to practically dismantle the inside
in order to fit it. Nice job Keith ;-). I am very pleased with the vehicle
and it has been well worth the wait.|
Throughout the import process
Svetlana's responses to my e-mail's were always very quick, very
courteous, informative and reassuring.
Algy was very professional
and helpful in advising me what I needed to do. A true Gent!
in all the entire process was as swift as it could be (no time was wasted
anywhere). I would like to thank everyone involved. I would
importing a vehicle with Algy's Autos to anyone.
A quality service
and quality vehicle.
Regards, Andrew Fielder.

|Thankyou Algy and Sveta (at Algys Autos)
Andrew(at BSL imports) and Keith at (Lodways Service Station Bristol) for
an excellent service in obtaining and arranging importation of my superb
low-milage Mazda Bongo weekend Camper.|
I can commend this team, led
By Algy, as legitimate, bone-fide, honest, reliable hard-working traders
-- looking to give the very best of satisfaction to their customers -- the
care to whom they show obvious, passionate, committment.
Lodways, had serviced, MOTed, DVLC registered the vehicle, changed the
cam-belt and added a new battery (even though the vehicle had done only
26.000 miles). He also added speedo and fog-lamps to UK regs. He also had
professional body refurb / upgrade and internal valeting carried out so
that this superb low- milage vehicle was in pristine showroom condition.
All of this was included in Algys original price quotation.
also (as a seperate order) undersealed and added the special Bongo double
electric tow-bar at a competetive price which was an ultra-convenient
This 2.5 turbo-diesel is so fully loaded, and was
unbelievably lively up the motorway, that we nearly got done for speeding
it runs so fast, smoothly and quietly. There is no compact multi-purpose /
camper van available in the UK to half match this for spec and performance
-- even at double the price.
Your team, although small, friendly
and easy to contact -- were very professional throughout. As a first-time
"importer" I could not have done this without your excellent service.
Thank you all very much indeed.
Note: I am a disabled driver and,
as such, any disabled driver can obtain VAT and import duty relief on a
used import vehicle if adapted in a simple way prior to entrance into the
UK. This entitlement also allows VAT relief on future serviceing of any
aspect of the vehicle whilst owned by the disabled person. I understand
Algy will now fit simple push-pull hand controls (or similar simple
adaptation) before exportation if parts and fitting instructions are
supplied in advance by the customer.
This disabled persons
concession offers a unique, significant and legitimate tax saving on a
good- as-new used vehicle. It should be noted that one cannot obtain VAT
relief on a used vehicle bought in the UK (and subsequently adapted for a
disabled persons needs) unless the vehicle was adapted prior to first
registration as a new vehicle. This represents a significant, immediate
and ongoing saving on top of the already valuable savings obtained by
importing directly through Algy's Autos.
Algy has indicated that he
would pass on the full tax saving to the disabled customer with only the
small labour cost of adaptation deducted. Forget Motability Leasing
schemes -- this is the cost-effective way to fully own a great adpated
vehicle to fit a disabled persons lifestyle!
I am happy to advise
disabled drivers / potential non-driving owners to obtain relevant forms
and clearance certificate from Customs and Exise and guide them through a
relatively new tax relief entitlement process. email email@example.com
Brendan King (very satisfied customer)

We spoke on Thursday from Lodway,
courtesy of Keith, after picking up my nissan Figaro. As we said the car was in
mint condition, as you promised, looking and feeling good. Keith and his
lads had done a terrific job, and we have loved driving the car over this
weekend. The service that you, Svetlana and Keith and his staff provide is
fantastic and all our initial doubts about the transaction have been
proved unfounded. We would recommend you to anybody interested in buying
an exclusive imported Japanese car.
We paid three visits to Lodway,
firstly to meet Keith, secondly to see the figaro straight from the docks and
thirdly to pick up the finished article. On each occasion we had a laugh
with Keith and his lads, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
are beginning to get used to the celebrity status that owning a Figaro
bestows on any driver!! What value for money!

guided tour of the docks and work shop - we are ordering a Bongo.It is
always a risky buying something over the net - but Algy, Keith, Svett and
the girls at the shipping office - Laura - have all been great. i would
recommend them to any one - except I don't want too many Bridgets driving
about! Thanx again Algy and Keith.

it - just like I imagined. Thanks to Algy, Keith and BSL all i have had to
do is part with money, and for those of you browsing the site; it is more
than worth the wait. I want to say a massive thank you to algy for guiding
me through the process- i didnt have a clue at first but i was informed
every step of the way, and was very anxious too. I am now the very happy
owner of a nissan figaro, it is everything i hoped and more.|

|Guy Chessall - Tue Apr 20
|After much deliberation and soul searching I
am now the proud owner of a beautiful Toyota hilux Surf and to say I'm delighted
is almost an understatement. Yes, like all other first timers to the Algy
experience, I was anxious about buying a car only from photos over the net
from someone I'd never met, but the whole process has been easy and
painless. Algy and his team really are very efficent, helpful and
extremely good at what they do. If you are looking for a value-for- money
car that is impeccably turned out(as close to perfection as you can get
for a car which is 10yr old) , Algy is your man. Have there been any
problems? One minor problem, in that the speedo/odometer conversion has
probably interfered with the correct function of the cruise control, but
I've no doubt that Algy will be true to his word and rectify that for me
when I'm next passing Bristol. Many thanks to BSL, Keith and co.at Lodway,
and of course Algy for a car buying experience second to none.

|To whom it may concern, |
Parked on my
drive is a stunning SWB 2.8 pajero fieldmaster. Brought through Algy
Definitely not a computer expert but i found Algy Autos just by
chance browsing (not really knowing what i was doing on the web) After
looking through his web site on new years eve (to tired to go reveling the
night away) i sent Algy an email. 11 o'clock new years day algy phoned me
straight away i felt at ease talking to him, telling him what i was
looking for. He found me the perfect car, with no pressure from Algy what
so ever and having a good think wether i was doing the right thing buying
a car over the internet and phone without even seeing the car, i went for
Algy and his team were brilliant keeping me informed on what was
happening all though the buying and shipping to the point of me collecting
When i finally saw the car it was everything algy said it
would be. Keith at Lodway service station Bristol (a real character)
aranged all the finishing extras i wanted on my Pajero and i would like to
thank him and his staff for all their help.
Linda at BSL shipping was
great, with lots of Algy cars to deal with she was very helpful and
efficient with all the import dealings and i would like to thank her
And finaly Algy himself, i now look at him as a friend and without
even meeting the chap! His personal service and dedication to finding me
my perfect car. Keeping me informed by email or phone which he knew i
prefered not being a computer whiz kid!!! I would like to give him a big
May be its the cyprus sun and good life which gives him the
dedicated professional service he provides, i cannot thank you enough for
all you have done for me, Im one happy man. I wish Algy autos all the
success in the future.
So if you are thinking of buying a car from Algy
GO FOR IT!!! you wont be dissapointed i promise! Feel free to contact me
if you have any doubts.
MEN BEWARE! IF YOU HAVE A WIFE OR PARTNER THAT DRIVES YOU MAY HAVE BIG
PROBLEMS GETTING TO DRIVE IT YOURSELF THE ONLY ANSWER IS TO BUY
|Peter Tantag - Wed Mar 24
|Keep the good sales... |
|Trevor Townsend - Tue Mar 23
|Without doubt the best customer service I
have EVER received. True to his word, Algy kept me informed throughout the
whole time, even when there was a delay in the shipping. I must admit it
was a bit nerve racking, parting with money across the internet for a
vehicle I had never even seen, other than a photo. But, it was as Algy
said, In perfect condition. If you are looking for a great car at a great
price then I would look no further than Algy's Autos |

|The Bighorn purchased from Algy is in
excellent condition. I am glad that I didn't go for the Surf in the end.
So much more car in the Bighorn for onl 200 more.The process did have itS
problems and caused the usual doubts, (lot's of mone to strangers, for
goods unchecked),however, the man himself sorted out any fears,doubts,and
minor problems concerning the transaction. I am happy to recommend Algy's
Autos and will use them again in the future. |
|Ken Johnson - Tue Mar 9
|We have very recently completed the purchase
of our Toyota Estima, which is a great hit with all the family- satisfying
two teenage daughters takes some doing. We highly recommend Algy's
company. The whole procedure was extremely efficient. Everyone involved
;-Algy, Linda from the shipping company and Keith and his colleagues from
the servicing garage in Bristol were all really helpul. Where there were
any (very minor) snags, everyone invoved was extremely couteous and dealt
with them quickly.After sales service has also been very professional.
Good luck in buying you car from Algy.

Just bought an Estima; there's not another Brit spec MPV like
them. We chose to pick it up from Bristol & the garage was dead easy
to find. They are used cars, but compared the others we'd looked at, ours

price & the service.
|Vernon Cowley - Thu Feb 26
|Have recently rceived our Estima. It is in

|For anyone thinking of buying through Algy,
I've got to say I highly recommend him. After initial reservations about
wiring a lot of money to a Cypriot bank account, Algy explained the whole
process and put me at ease. From sourcing the vehicle, through the import
process, to getting it "on the road" in the UK I have received nothing but
the very best service. I cannot speak highly enough of the service we
received in getting our Estima from him. Incidentally, I'm not a "made up
person"! Feel free to email me to check the authenticity of this glowing

the photos that were e-mailed to me. The car is
immaculate inside and
out and I'm very, very happy
with it. I would certainly buy from Algy
and if anyone reading this is thinking of buying -
do it, you
won't regret it !

|Hi there! Ive just recieved my lucy and it is
superb everything as described and in an exelent overall condition, not a
single mark on the body work and it passed the MOT with no comment! Just
had a towbar fitted and have towed my 17 foot caravan with ease! Nice One
Algy! Will recommend to any one!|
P.S. I think the blonde girl on the
sports car page deserves a Honda S2000 as i think this would look good on
your web site!

|I have a couple of questions to ask. What
ports do you deliver to in my area Dorset? How do we know that the mileage
hasnt been tampered with. |

|I happend upon this site by accident, I
wasn't looking for a new car, but when I saw my bighorn, I knew I had to
have it. my misses took some persuading but the sheer professionalism
shown by Algy and his team soon persuaded her. If I emailed Algy I got an
answere within 2 yes that's 2 hours. even if the email was sent at 10
o'clock pm uk time!!! I would thouroughly recommend Algy and his team to
anyone considering buying an import. It was easy, and uncomplicated. a
real pleasure doing business. my advice, go for it!!! |

|I received my 2.5 Exceed last Thursday
evening from Algy Martin, who delivered it personally, with a new MOT, to
The quality of the vehicle is every bit as good as Algy
said it would be, and is exactly as it looked on the photographs Algy had
provided. The vehicle, although over ten years old, is in excellent
condition both inside and out, with stunning leather seats showing no
signs of wear - still, the vehicle has only done 39,000 miles from new, so
why should there be?!.
From initially wondering if I'd done the
right thing by transferring several thousand pounds to someone I didn't
know in Cyprus on the premise of importing me a car from Japan, I am
pleased to be able to say without hesitation that Algy Martin is true to
his word and that Algy's Autos can be thoroughly

experience with Algy's Autos, please feel free to drop me an

|I took delivery of a Mitsubishi Pajero 2.5
Exceed last night delivered in person by Algy and his driver Sue. My new
truck is everything Algy said it would be, a 5 star quality used vehicle
with everything working and fully serviced in Cyprus. The whole process of
buying the car was painless, with Algy's people keeping me informed of
progress as it happened. I am a delighted customer.|
The used car
business is famous for dodgy characters, however my experience of Algy
(and his people) is that he would rather have an unblemished reputation
for customer service and quality than any amount of money.
It is my
personal view that Algy's Autos is a good, quality, reputable business
that really cares about getting it right, and I recommend them

|What ever possessed me to send 6500 to a
bloke in Cyprus for a car I had never seen, I'll never know. But as every
one in this guest book has said, the car arrived (delivered to my door)in
excellent condition. I am very happy with the deal and would not hesitate
to recommend Algy's Autos to any one.Thank you for a great car. |

|A Big Horn!|
I phoned a number of importers
looking for LWB Pajero's or Big Horn's (Isuzu Trooper), and I have to say
that the immediate level of service from both Algy and Babar in Japan beat
the others hands down.
I eventually got a 7 seat Big Horn with less
than 30,000 miles on it through the import scheme, and 5 days after I
collected from the docks, I was on the road.
Proof of how good a
service is provided is usually only seen when there is a problem, and I
had a small problem with overdrive not working. Algy didn't dodge
responsibility (which I'm sure he could have quite easily!) and made sure
that it was reapired at no cost to me.

|Im a private buyer and wanted a 4x4 for the
first time since I have a large caravan and my Mrs had been pestering me,
I decided on a Pajero since I like the shape, but the prices. well you
know about them.|
Came across Algy and at first, like others I guess,
there was no way I was going to buy a car without even seeing it.
phoned me a couple of times and convinced me it was a good thing to do,
out of the blue I suddenly said ok, chose my car by colour really and
wheel base size, and that was the start of my worries.
Algy was in
touch with me regular, filling me in on where my car was up to, so was his
secretary and the shipping company too.
I had arranged to have it
delivered to my door, (a good 150+miles each wayI dont know how they do it
for the money).
Well got the calls from Algy saying car was in dock
then it was off for MOT, then early sunday morning, 7am to be precise it
What a reief all that worry for nothing.
Ive been to all the
local and not so local dealers as far as Liverpool,and they are 2000
dearer than Algy, oh and if its got fancy wheels on like mine they stick
another 500 on the price. I know I nearly bought one. One thing I did
notice at most dealers too, the tyres were a bit thin, and these are quite
an expensive item, Algy put new tyres on mine, without me even
All I can say is my car is immaculate and Im really pleased
Algy is a nice guy (I have met him) and up to now has been
true to his word, he even phones me up to check Im still happy with it,
What dealer would do that?
The cars great, I think you may be able to
see some pics of it on his site??
Would I do it again? Yes I would.
next time without all the worry.
Hope this helps anyone interested in
purchasing a car in this way.
Thanks to Algy and all his staff, and I
look forward to meeting you again maybe in Cyprus? or if your

Just want to say thanks for
the Pajero Ive recently bought from you, the condition was better than
vehicles I've bought from other suppliers. The service received all down
the line has been excellent. I'd also like to thank all at the shipping
company you use, BSL in the UK, for their assistance, very helpful and for
once a company who know what their doing, cheers dave

|I wanted a decent quality 4x4 for my touring
caravan. After looking around at local garages the vehicles in my price
range were disapointing to say the least!|
I found ALGY's AUTOS on
the internet, and I admit at first was concerned (who wouldn't be) about
buying a car that I hadn't seen, direct from Japan.
Well let me
tell you if you are considering this option - DO IT!
I have the
utmost praise for Algy, his staff, and his EXCELLENT service he has
provided me with. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to you if you want a good
quality used car, that beats the pants off anyone else.
If you are
worried about doing it, then dont be. Algy is the best!

|Our dealership was looking at the option of

|I am a private buyer and I was looking for an
excellent deal on an MPV for my growing family. Not only were Algy's Autos
able to source me a better MPV then available here in the UK, they were
able to under-cut any deal here with a better spec, lower milage car.
There was an issue with my inital selection and this was pointed out when
they could have been under hand about it. I fully endorse Algy's Autos and
would be happy to be contacted for reference. Clifton. |
