We've been selling cars in and around Dorset in the U.K. for over 40 years and have recently moved from our long time home on London Road in Dorchester to a new site on The Grove complete with purpose built showrooms and workshops.
We deal mainly in new and nearly new vehicles - one owner & low mileage. However, If we don't have what you're looking for we still may be able to help you by accessing an extensive nationwide Vehicle Finder database containing thousands of vehicles.

Here at Dorchester Collection we have been blessed with fantastic local, national and international customers. A good deal of these customers come back to us time and again and many of them have been doing so for many, many years! So much so that a significant part of our day-to-day business consists of repeat customers.
Here's just a few examples of the feedback we've recently received.
“Extremely helpful and friendly and professional. "Old fashioned" in a good way. It was gratifying to be treated with courtesy and trust. I felt like a valued customer.”
- Via the BUY WITH CONFIDENCE feedback forms
“Hi, thank you for the excellent service when I bought our Nissan Qashqai recently. The attention we were given before, during and after the sale was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble, I would, and have done, recommend you to anyone. Thank you again and feel free to use this recommendation in any publicity. Kindest regards, Dave Morley. PS. We are very pleased with the car.”
“First class service, very pleasant people to do business with (over 15years). It is not true what they say about second hand car dealers. Lovely helpful practical advice.”
- Via the BUY WITH CONFIDENCE feedback forms
“COuld I thankyou very much for being so co-operative and above board in honouring your warranty on my car. My local Honda dealer even commented how efficient and co-operative you were in settling the parts and labour bill. Thankyou again for the flowers you kindly left for my wife, when we collected our car. A nice touch I thought. I would certainly not hesitate to recommend doing business with yourselves to anyone.”
“Paul and Ben - many thanks for sorting out my car – the service that your company offers definitely goes much further than any other people I have dealt with and you are in grave danger of giving the second hand car business a good name!! You will be my first port of call if and when I decide a change of vehicle is needed.”

Buy With Confidence
In October 2008 we underwent a number of checks by Trading Standards officers to ensure that our business conforms to the stringent standards required by Dorset County Council's Trading Standards approved trader scheme, Buy With Confidence. We are very pleased and extremely honoured to have been awarded membership. If you're not already aware of this government scheme here's a few quotes from the site to help explain just what it's all about and what it means to our customers.
“The aim of the Buy with Confidence scheme is to help consumers to avoid rip-offs and cowboys by providing a list of reputable local businesses, in a wide range of different trades. Member companies have been independently checked by staff from the local authority Trading Standards Service against the Scheme rules.”
“All members are subjected to stringent checks by Trading Standards staff to ensure their trustworthiness and compliance with the law. Levels of consumer complaints against members are also monitored on a regular basis.”
“Members of the scheme are committed to providing a quality service to their customers and complying with both the letter and the spirit of the law.”

All Our Vehicles Are HPI Checked
An HPI check examines a vehicle's status under all of the registers and will confirm whether a vehicle has outstanding car finance, is recorded as stolen, or has previously been written-off as a result of damage, theft or both.
HPI's checks also confirm many other details, including the make, model, colour, door plan, and engine size. These thorough checks ensure that all of the listed details match the descriptions recorded against the vehicle at the time of manufacture.
The checks also safeguard against any discrepancies in the mileage listed for the vehicle by accessing the UK's largest database of vehicle mileage records.
For more information see : www.hpicheck.com
All vehicles listed in our Current Stock list that are not still covered by a manufacturers warranty benefit from our own comprehensive warranty (extended warranties are available upon request).
We provide the most competitive finance rates available to us.
