Click Here for our COVID-19 Statement : Dear Customer I hope that you, our much-valued customers, are keeping safe as we face what is, without doubt, a global crisis that is unprecedented in modern times. We have kept all our premises open and fully functioning as long as possible, and we would love nothing more than to be able to continue to operate normally. However we do not live in ‘normal’ times at present, and after a careful assessment of all our options involving trade and retail customers alike, as well as our employees and suppliers, we feel that we must do the right thing for the greater good. In order to protect our people and help limit the deadly spread of the COVID-19 virus, and following the Prime Minister’s speech on Monday evening, we have decided to temporarily close our car sales with immediate effect but our service and repair facility will remain open until close of business on Friday 27th March after which this will also shut in line with the Government recommendation. We have not taken such a decision lightly, but we do believe that in emergency situations, we need to do our bit as individuals and as a company to protect each other. We remain committed to our customers and to our employees, but our commitment extends far further than purely economic arrangements. The health and welfare of our customers, work colleagues and suppliers are fundamental factors in all our decision-making and your protection remains our highest priority. As this is a rapidly changing situation, we don’t know for how long our branches will be closed. However, we will continue to follow the advice of our Government as well as Public Health England.. We will update you further when more information becomes available. In the meantime, take care of yourselves, your loved ones, your colleagues and your communities, and we look forward to seeing you all back when the time is right. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Ashington Automobile Company.

Ashington Automobile Co.

Ashington Automobile Co.

Quality car retailer of West Sussex

Ashington Automobile Company was established in 1969 as an independent Ford specialist. We remain a family-run business, still doing what we've always done best: bringing you the South Coast's biggest selection of top-quality nearly-new and used Fords at extremely competitive prices. While we specialise in Ford, we sell, buy and service and MOT cars of all makes and types.

Due to our unwavering commitment to deliver consistently the best value used cars in the south, we have outgrown our original site. As from May 2017 we have opened another site just a few hundred yards around the corner to help cope with the unprecedented volumes of cars that we are now selling. Don't worry we will still continue to sell all cars from our existing site, and that won't change, but having the newer site means that we can bring you even more choice and value while still maintaining our enviable reputation for great customer service.

So if you're looking for a high-quality nearly-new or used car, or want main-dealer service standards at real-world prices, we're the people to talk to.

The original Ford discount centre

We pioneered the concept of offering our customers a wide choice of cars at low prices. Today, there are plenty of 'car supermarkets' doing the same thing, but with one crucial difference: at Ashington Autos, you benefit from almost 50 years of Ford experience and expertise, plus the personal service you'll receive only from a genuine family firm.

Transparent and trustworthy

At Ashington Autos, the price you see is the price you pay: there no hidden administration fees, or valeting and servicing charges. We can take your current car in part-exchange: we also buy cars for cash. We're proud members of the 'Buy with Confidence' scheme run by West Sussex Trading Standards, so you can be confident you're dealing with experienced, reputable, officially accredited and genuinely caring people.
