When Oliver Barnard took his first tentative steps into the transport industry in 1909 the introduction of the car to Stowmarket was still a few years away and little could he have known the company would go on to become one of East Anglia’s leading privately owned companies. Oliver Barnard started out with two horses and one wagon, offering day trips and outings to destinations such as Great Yarmouth.

  • "Very good customer service. This is one of many cars we have purchased from Barnards Volkswagen and we always have a great experience, we recommend friends and family as often as possible to go and see them. Great service and deal. 

    Mr Colin & Mrs Sue Robinson

  • "Dear Mr Halestrap I am retired and over the years have visited a number of car dealers with the view to purchasing a new car but have never felt the need to contact the dealership regarding the service I received. Today I feel I had to contact you regarding the purchase of the above mentioned vehicle from your dealership and the service I received from a member of your staff Mr Levi Wright.For the past few weeks, I have been searching to replace my old vehicle and visiting many dealerships, viewing cars and having the staff tell me what I should purchase and then constantly chasing me on the phone asking if I wanted to pursue a particular vehicle. Then I visited your branch in and was met by Mr Levi Wright, who I found to be very friendly, professional, knowledgeable and honest he never tried to push any particular model on to me. This type of salesmanship I found very refreshing.We found a car which I would be very interested in test driving. We arranged a date for a test drive of the New Golf SV MPV. He explained all the functions/equipment fitted to the vehicle, which both my wife and I just fell in love with straight away - the car is fabulous."
