Welcome to The Car Change

The Car Change, an Independent, family run used car dealership based in Essex. Providing a wide range of quality used vehicles, all our vehicles are available to view online and at our new Chelmsford showroom. We have over 40 years’ experience in the motor industry and are well equipped to offer our customers the best possible service when it comes to dealing with the purchase of their next car.

The experience you have when you visit The Car Change is important to us. We really do care that you enjoy the whole experience of selecting, test driving and buying the car of your choice. With our knowledge, we believe that there is no one better to help guide you through the whole process, from your first inquiry to taking delivery of your new vehicle.

Our website contains our latest selection of hand-picked used vehicles and are featured in our virtual showroom. We update our stock on a regular basis and each vehicle is listed with a full specification and set of images. We offer a broad range of vehicles, whether you’re after a small city car, a car for the family or are after something a little more prestigious, we can cater to a wide range of requirements.

Have something specific in mind, but don’t see it on our virtual showroom? Why not take advantage of our free, ‘Car Finder’ service? We have a vast number of contacts within the industry and are fortunate enough to be able to source specific vehicles upon request.

As standard, any vehicle you purchase will come with a basic warranty. More extensive warranty packages are available upon request if you wish to add extra cover. We can also assist you if you are looking to finance your new vehicle. We have a wide choice of finance options to choose from and we will even take your old car in part exchange. Furthermore, all our vehicles are verified by an independent HPI report and sourced to the highest standards, giving you total peace of mind and full confidence in your new vehicle.  

We believe purchasing your new car should be a transparent process that you understand fully. From the part exchange process to any finance package that you may require, we are here to help. We respect and understand that buying a car is a significant commitment, and we believe that making a decision in your own time is the best way, so why not come on down, view, take a test drive, have a cup of tea and take your time in comfort.  We very much look forward to meeting you.

    The Whole Sales Process Was Stress-Free
    We were dreading going to look for a new car, as so many salespeople are so pushy. We went to The Car Change and Rob was the complete opposite. We ended up finding our dream car and the whole sales process was stress-free. Thank you, Rob. We have been recommending you to all of our friends.

  • Excellent Service And Would Use Again
    Excellent Service And Would Use Again
    Bought a lovely mini from Peter in November last year. No pressure sale, very fair part exchange price and a minor problem with a tyre was sorted before I collected the car. As we live some distance from Chelmsford, Peter even drove car halfway to my home address for collection. Excellent service and would use again.

    Very Relaxed Easy Going Yet Professional
    Being a sales person myself it really bugs me when a salesman tries to pressure me when I am looking to buy a car, I am pleased to say that there was none of that with Glen and the Car Change, very relaxed easy going yet professional purchase. Car very well priced, & when we pointed out a few broken items on the car (before purchasing) Glen agreed to fix all the points with no arguments whatsoever. I hope they have what I'm looking for when we change next time, & thank you for sending my wife Easter chocolates on her Birthday, nice touch
