What our customers say about us

Here`s what people are saying about Bawns LTD.

" Quote from a recent customer "

H Weinberg - 1970 Daimler Sovereign

"We contacted Darren after the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club recommended him because we needed advice on what to do with our late Father's Daimler Sovereign that had been unused in the garage for 22 years. 
When Darren arrived, he gave us three options, one of which was to repatriate the car from its resting place and prepare it for sale, including an MOT. He also gave us a full estimate for the work and his professional opinion on what the car would be worth. Once we agreed, he took care of everything, arranged for the car to be collected and sold it on our behalf. 

He kept us updated all the way and we were extremely pleased with his professionalism throughout the process leading to the sale. 

We are most appreciative of  Darren's diligent assistance and of course we are delighted that our late Father's car has found a caring new owner. We would highly recommend Darren without hesitation."

T Wadham - 1989 Vauxhall Senator 3.0 


"I contacted a Vauxhall Owners' club website, asking for help in locating a car to buy. I was looking for a Vauxhall Senator, a rare car.  Darren contacted me the same day and introduced himself as a vehicle factor, who would inspect likely cars and give me a report on condition prior to my offering to buy. I agreed to him doing this for me.
A potentially suitable vehicle had already been located, in Royston, Herts, a good 85 miles from my home.  Darren arranged to inspect the car the following week, and immediately he had done so he sent me a very comprehensive report in .pdf format with full information on the car, a full set of photographs both interior, exterior and engine bay, and notes on the car's condition and his appraisal of it. 
As Darren  had recommended the car as a suitable vehicle for my needs, I went ahead and bought it. The car was exactly as Darren had described it, and I am extremely pleased with it. After a couple of small tweaks, I now have a superb Senator that will give me a lot of pleasure on the classic car show scene. 
I would certainly recommend Darren's services as a vehicle appraiser. He is very efficient, realistic, and reasonably priced."

J Airs - 1973 Jaguar E-Type V12 Coupe 


"Worth every penny of the inspection fee gave me a full detailed report and honest advice. When he does the inspection you know he's on your side. Can’t fault the service he went out of his way in the Christmas break to see the Jag as I was in a rush to purchase it before a holiday. But most of all its not just an inspection you get it's great advice just at the end of the phone. And has been nothing but more than happy to help me with any questions and he has a mass wealth of knowledge and contacts for classic cars. Nothing but good words can be said about this man and the service he provides. Highly recommend him 100% "

Phoebe Steven's and Mark Battye - Trojan Cars portsmouth 



‘We have used Lemon Road a number of times to inspect cars for us. Darren is very helpful and gives a full and accurate report on cars. I would thoroughly recommend this service as I have wasted lots of time and money travelling the country looking at cars that are not as described, or worse buying them blind! This is money well spent as it saves me time and costly mistakes.’

M Jackson - Jaguar XJ8 


I wanted to buy an XJ8 and the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club recommended Darren to me.

I contacted Darren by email and he made all the arrangements with the vendor to inspect my choice.

Within a week the XJ had been inspected, I'd received a full detailed report and a USB stick full of photos.

I bought the car and when I collected it the vendor stated how impressed he was with Darren's knowledge and his professionalism.

The car runs great and I'm a very happy owner of an XJ8.
