Why choose Rates?

Rates are a family run business established over 62 years ago. In that time we have made a name for ourselves as a business who care about our customers. Part of our dedication is ensuring all of our cars are in pristine condition before we sell them, all components fully checked and cleared with a perfect bill of health by qualified Ford Technicians.

We offer all customers a full satisfaction guarantee for three months covering all parts.
