Chevron Cars was established in 1979 by Peter Knott at small premises off Holderness Road in Hull. He was joined in the business by youngest son Tony in 1991, which gives us a combined total of 70 years (and counting!) running our family business selling used cars. We have experienced many changes in the industry over the last 40 years but our desire to supply high quality used cars at reasonable prices has never changed. We have many loyal customers who return time and again because of this.

For the last 20 years we were based in the leafy village of Kirk Ella in the East Riding of Yorkshire, just a couple of miles from the Humber Bridge and Lincolnshire. However, we recently moved back to the centre of Hull, which was until recently the UK City of Culture. We don't just supply cars locally however. In recent months we have supplied cars to customers from as far afield as Aberdeen and Hampshire. We have also supplied vehicles to customers around the world, to countries as diverse as Ireland, Malta and Zimbabwe. If you are travelling from outside of our area we are always happy to suggest hotels, restaurants and places to visit.

Each car is hand-picked and carefully prepared for sale by us, with occasional help from a carefully selected range of fellow local businesses with their own different areas of expertise. Once they are ready for sale we take a large selection of photographs and create a HD video of each vehicle, to enable you to see as much as possible from the comfort of your own home.

At the point of sale each vehicle is given a full 12 months MOT, a Pre-Delivery Inspection and a service, when required. All vehicles are fully checked with HPI, Experian or Motorcheck to ensure that they have never had any recorded accident damage, are not reported as stolen and are free from finance. They are also checked to ensure that there are no mileage discrepancies recorded. We are also licensed credit brokers with the Financial Conduct Authority to enable us to offer you competitive finance options. We are also members of the Independent Motor Dealers Association and are signed up to the IMDA Code of Conduct, which commits us to maintaining our high standards.

Our aim is to offer the finest used cars we can find and prepare them to the best of our ability and then make them available to view in a relaxed, friendly and pressure free environment. We have many outstanding reviews from our lovely customers and would urge you to read at least a few of them on our Testimonials page.

As a small family business our opening times are sometimes variable. However, we are flexible and more often than not we are able to fit in with hectic modern lifestyles and are able to be available at most times, even outside of traditional business hours. Please contact us before you visit to arrange a time.

Thank you for taking the time to read this page. If you have any questions please feel free to ask us. We look forward to welcoming customers old and new to Chevron Cars.

Best wishes,

Peter and Tony
