Bought a first car (a Peugeot 107) last week for my daughter. We had a 660 mile round trip and were not disappointed. Team were a pleasure to deal with and we’re very happy with how professionally we were dealt with from start to finish. The car was well serviced and prepared for the big drive home.

What a refreshing change to be given help and advice without pressure and know that the dealer is being completely honest. Ashley was a pleasure to speak to he was available at all times to speak to even when under pressure. He provided a good deal and part exchange for my granddaughter for her first proper car. All his vehicles look amazing and fairly priced.
Going the extra honest mile isn’t something you would normally associate with a car dealer but I would recommend Ian Shammons without hesitation if you want great customer service for a secondhand car. Thank you.

Highly recommend. Ashley was very professional but not at all ‘pushy’. Great communication throughout the purchase.

Steve went above and beyond to make sure i had the right car for my student daughter who lives far from home. He was very honest and straightforward even offering advice on the best car for her. I have recommended him to many friends as I am thoroughly happy with the car and service provided.

Purchased a used SEAT IBIZA from this company.
Buying process was friendly and efficient with no pressure to buy.
I have had the car for a couple of months now and it has lived up to everything I had hoped for.
Would recommend as a trustworthy company.

Excellent service. So easy to exchange cars. Great people to deal with and would recommend to all friends and family.

Great people and great cars. Go out of their way to help you. Recommend to anyone

One of the best levels of service you’ll receive from any industry, let alone the car sales industry. Brilliantly looked after when my daughter purchased her first car, and the car has proven to be excellent quality.

This is the third car I have bought from Ian Shammon.
5 stars is not enough Steve goes the extra mile and more to satisfy your needs.
When buying a new car your first internet search sould start looking at Ian Shammon.
Nothing is too much for Steve .

I needed a car quickly as I work in community health services and mine had finally given up! Ian Shammon’s had been recommended to myself and my other half by a friend. They more than lived up to the recommendation! Steve and all of the staff at this family run business were friendly and professional and did not put any pressure on us. It truly felt like Steve wanted to find the right car for us and not just make a sale. I had in mind a Panda (as I’d gotten a good life out of my previous one),however Steve recommended a Hyundai i10 and it has been absolutely perfect. Steve also found us the best deal he could to finance the car. He got it ready for us very speedily and made the whole process so easy. I wouldn’t hesitate to go again. Thanks Ian Shammon’s!

Shammon’s takes a Goldilock’s approach to selling: Not too hard, not too soft but just right. I love my new little car. Thanks Steve.

Thank you for a easy exchange of cars
Would highly recommend
Very helpful and no pressure

I had my doubts about buying a used car, unseen off the net but I needn’t have worried.
This was a straightforward transaction, a very honest used car and a very honest used car dealer.
The bad news is… my wife has bonded with the Mazda…..
Thanks Ian

I recently bought a Citeron C1 from Ian Shammon and I am so glad I came to him. This is my first car and not knowing a lot Ian was able to answer all my questions. There were several vehicles he offered that I was interested in. Being new in the area I looked for a local dealer with a good reputation, Ian was both. We discussed my needs, desires and budget and he was able to provide me with all the advice I needed. The car was very reasonably priced and had a fantastic mileage. He even threw in an MOT in and dealt with the advisories at no extra cost. I would highly recommend Ian to anyone in the market for a car. I am very pleased with my car and the service I received.

Car out of warranty but I went up to the showroom this morning because I couldn’t reset the tyre pressure warning light after inflating tyres. Explained the problem and the lovely staff there checked the pressure then showed me how to reset the warning lights, no hassle, no charge just lovey and perfect customer service.
Thank you

Purchased a fantastic Toyota Aygo from Steve. Drives like a dream. Great purchase. Would recommend to anyone. Next car I need, I will be back to this garage pronto. Most enjoyable
experience. This is a Top Garage, glad I found. Thank you. Keep up the good work Steve.

Of all the cars I have purchased, Ian Shammon cars has shown the highest degree of professionalism throughout. Immensely proficient, Ian’s son Stephen runs the business and provided a clear, no fuss, no pressure sale. It is rare for me to take time to comment on surveys but the all round professional service given by Ian Shammon cars merits special mention. Highly recommended!

Steve and the rest of the staff are friendly and laid back. They listen to what you have to say and offer sound advice on their broad range of cars that they have available. They are never too pushy and offer good deals.

My partner and I are very pleased with the service we were provided with at Ian shammon from everything from viewing their website, calling to schedule a viewing to processing payment and taking our new car away with us. The staff we had interactions with were all polite and friendly and were more than happy to discuss options with us. I was very keen to get the car as soon as possible as we both needed it for work the following week and Ian shammon were brilliant in trying their best to meet our requirements. We never felt pressured into making a purchase and we appreciate the 3 month guarantee, which thus far we have not needed. I would recommend Ian shammon, a friendly and professional team. Thank you for helping us find our new car. Ruth & Nick.

A Thorough, fruendly, not pushy, gives good advise I would recommend. .Thank you for my car , very happy.

CHOICE Stumbled across this garage when looking for a small, economical city car. Decided on a Toyota Aygo before arriving but the choice was exceptional. They had Toyota Aygo, Peugeot 107, Fiat 500, Suzuki Swift, + Vauxhall Corsa amongst others. BUYING EXPERIENCE The experience whilst we were searching was very pleasant. Where some garages can be pushy or ever-present, Ian Shammons team offered help of required and left us to it. When we had questions and wanted a test drive they obliged immediately. When it came to negotiation they were fair and pleasant. The price agreed included a service, MOT and tax. AFTERCARE Upon arriving to collect the car, it had been washed, serviced, MOT’d and taxed as agreed. Additionally they had fitted brand new mats after a light hearted remark and replaced the front two tyres as they had a minor recommendation on the MOT. They did unfortunately record my wife as Miss not Mrs on the VC50.

Excellent service!! Will definitely recommend

26/11/2016- Sam J

Very friendly and helpful throughout the car buying process Would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy.

03/12/2016-  Steven C

From start to finish cannot fault the service from this place both Steven and Ashley were very professional and did exactly what they promised to do. Also sorted out all the paperwork on changeover from my old car which was very helpful.

03/12/2016-  Joanne T

I have bought several cars over the years and I can’t rate them high enough. They are friendly and honest . Dealing with them is never stressful they go above and beyond .

11/01/2017-  Ryan B

A fantastic service from start to finish. When I went to view some cars the staff were friendly and most importantly not pushy. The were able to accommodate a test drive there and then with no booking required. before i picked the car up they gave it a full service and put 1 years mot on the car even through it still had 6 months to run. They give a professional service with the added benefit of a local family business, I could not recommend them highly enough.

15/01/2017 – Kerry P

Professional and trust worthy. I got my little clio here a few years back, currently saving up to buy a new car, will not buy anywhere else.

05/02/2017-  Sue H

I can’t rate this company highly enough. I turned up without an appointment, hoping to look at a vehicle I’d seen on their website, and I was greeted very warmly by Ian himself (looking after things while Steve was away) then treated to a test drive in the car as well as a thorough demonstration. Ian also offered to buy my old banger, meaning I could drive myself to collect the new car on the day. When I arrived to collect it, Steve greeted me in a similarly friendly fashion and produced the car, all clean and shiny and serviced, with a 3 month guarantee. He took the trouble to show me how to operate all the controls – and even asked me which radio stations I preferred, so he could set them all up for me. All the paperwork was completed on both occasions, with speed and efficiency – and the new car is a dream to drive!

I have had a number of cars from Ian Shammon over the years, and have always been 100% satisfied with them. Both Ian and Steven are very friendly salesmen, do not I have had a number of cars from Ian Shammon over the years, and have always been 100% satisfied with them. Both Ian and Steven are excellent salesmen, not pushy and allow you to browse at your leisure. Very pleasant Father and Son, it’s a pleasure to do business with them.

We bought a Mazda 2 from Ian Shammon’s son, Steven and we are pleased to have a good, clean car. Steven was straight forward and helpful. I would strongly recommend Shammon’s.

08/05/2017- Bernard G

Just bought my second car from Ian Shammon. As usual the service was FIRST CLASS. Nothing was too much trouble for Steve. You will have to go a long way to find a dealer who will go the extra mile. Many thanks Steve for all you did for me on this occasion.

Bob Neilans

Bought the car of a deceased neighbour taking all the hassle of selling it of the non-driving widow – not only that, offered a very fair price – excellent dealer.

Two years ago- Lee Oliver

Pre sales was great after sales was great when it came to a flat tyre and Jack was missing from car I got told to ring breakdown service not a garage, so much for checking cars perfectly.

Daniel Perry

We’ve bought a 2004 Focus, 2010 TDCi Fiesta, 2011 Yaris and more previously from here. One of a select few garages in Lincoln that you can trust unreservedly. Had the old focus bonnet lock problem about half a year after I’d bought it. Got the mechanic to investigate, also topped up my levels and had a quick look around (all way out of any warranty). Prices for trade in were £1000’s above a certain national car dealer too. Great chap to talk to.

Excellent service with a smile.

Fantastic service from family run used car dealers.

One year ago- Dave Eccles

Bought a little twingo for my daughter, from the initial call to enquire about the car, to driving off the forecourt when we’d bought it, very polite, professional service, would highly recommend.

Harvey Hunter-

No pressure, honest and looked after us unbelievably well. Restored my faith in independent car salesmen. From start to finish, the best car buying experience I’ve ever had.

One year ago- Tim Lloyd

No-pressure car buying! Steve was extremely fair, patient, and flexible. Would definitely recommend this place and come back again. Thanks!

10 months ago- John Edlin

Good service, would recommend.

Very polite and friendly staff. Excellent after sales service. Couple of minor issues appeared with the KA I had bought resolved immediately no questions asked. Highly recommended

Just purchased a 2nd hand car, brilliant service.

One year ago- Mick Byrne

It was a pure pleasure dealing with Stephen. From my first inquiry to signing the documents everything went smoothly. Would highly recommend.

3 months ago- Emma Walker

Steve look after us very well, very explanatory, did not feel rushed everything explained in detail, very friendly, my grandfather always got his cars from Ian Shannon ltd, trustworthy company to go to.

10 months ago- John Daley

Just picked up my 4th vehicle from this dealership, that’s 6 in all for our family. It speaks for itself really but Ian and now Steven have supplied us with value for money quality cars for the last 15 years. With this type of service and friendship I have received I will continue for at least the next 15.

January 2019 –  Bill Metcalfe

Ian Shammon Ltd was possibly one of the best motor dealers i have had the pleasure of dealing with.

8 months ago- Mark Colton

Very happy with the car I bought for a very good price. Steve was great and extremely helpful. Made buying my new car easy and hassle free. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or use again!

4 months ago- Martin Christopher

My wife and I purchased a used car here about 6 months ago now, it is perfect, exactly as I was told it would be. I noticed a tear in one of the front tyres, both were changed with new ones on arrival to collect. Staff were helpful, not pushy and keep decent stock. Well worth considering if you are near Lincoln and need a new motor, I will certainly have a look at what they have next time I am buying a car.

My Mother recently sold her car to Stephen Shannon after her eyesight was failing.She has previously had vehicles from them before when dealing with Ian.The service from Stephen as from his father previously was first class.This is a local family business established for many years, offering a first class service.My mother got a very fair price on her low mileage Nissan.A price that allowed both parties to be happy and walk away.We live in a society now where so much is price driven.People want to pay as little as possible for something when buying and expect top dollar when selling.A car dealer has to make a margin and only source clean quality cars for it’s customers.So it can offer warranties etc and peace of mind to its customers. Ian Shammon’s also factors in unbeatable customer service.Open, honest caring and approachable, these qualities are not reflected in all car sales businesses.
That’s why I have no hesitation in recommending them, and also why my mother will be using them again, if she gets the go ahead to drive as she’s hoping to.
Thanks for looking after her for all these years!

Was willing to go the extra mile to get me in my new car as quickly as possible. Friendly service and definitely recommend buying from here

06/08/2017 – Richard M

The whole buying experience & after sales service was the best..

01/08/2017 – Naomi S

From first to last I was overwhelmingly impressed by Ian’s approach. He could not have been more helpful, completely honest and fair. I purchased a second hand car over the phone as I live in London. Ian told me exactly what the position of the car was and serviced it fully before delivery. In addition he replaced two tyres which he said needed replacing. I would definitely use his garage again and have recommended it to my friends in London.

18/07/2017 – Deanna A

Have recently bought my second car from Ian Shammons dealing with Steven, I have had such a friendly and honest dealing with this garage who go the extra yard to help with everything, being a female I was a little picky with things but Steven very patiently sorted everything out for me, thank you very much. My husband also bought our last car from here, again fully satisfied. If anyone wants a very good service this is the place. Well done to all.

08/07/2017 – Graham C

Just picked up a Peugeot 208 – this being the fourth car I have bought from Shammons. Having dealt with both Ian and Steve over the years – always guaranteed excellent service and they are prepared to go the extra mile to ensure you are happy – definitely worth a visit.
