John,

I cannot thank you enough for your support with the repair of my Octavia bonnet. I appreciate the circumstances were very unusual, your attention to customer satisfaction is very satisfying. I wish you all the best for your position at Progress. The respray is brilliant and I was pleased that you advised that the warranty on the body work was unaffected. It's put back the shine on the purchase.

Phil Copeman is always a pleasure to do business with. He is a good listener and strives to find a way to meet my motoring requirements. He is unfailingly pleasant, professional and goes out of his way to make sure I am happy with the car and the transaction arrangements. The Manager at Progress ŠKODA Northampton, Lee, is likewise consistently attentive and makes a point of greeting me when I visit the showroom. Along with Phil Copeman, he ensures I am pleased with the deal offered. He generates a very happy atmosphere within the ŠKODA premises, from a customer perspective.

All aspects of the transaction were dealt with in a very upbeat and positive way.

His manner and knowledge of the cars. As a female buyer, I particularly appreciated his taking me seriously and lack of condescension. He took care to answer my questions carefully and patiently.

Very clear explanations by salesman. No high pressure selling techniques used. Kept me informed all through the process.

Mrs D Dennis


Speech Marks

The unrushed manner Damian displayed throughout the new car purchasing process. He gave up his own time following an extensive test drive, beyond closing time at the showroom, to ensure that we were completely satisfied with the financial arrangements before completing the deal.

The overall time given for us to make a decision to buy was excellent. The salesperson was not pushy or trying to rush us into a commitment. We initially visited the showroom and a few days later went on an arranged test drive on a pre set route, covering all types of road and traffic conditions. Not only did the accompanying salesperson allow me to drive the route, he also had the time to allow my wife to do the same. This experience consolidated our desire to own ŠKODA Yeti.

Just very helpful, professional and friendly, didn’t treat me like a woman driver etc. Some sales people can be very patronising. Very helpful staff – Phil especially.

Mr Mervyn Judge

Very friendly and courteous, not as all ‘pushy’ and very conscientious. Nothing we asked was too much trouble and he dealt with our additional requests quickly and accurately.

Major S. Woodward

The sales representative took time to establish what I needed for a car and helped me to select the right model for me. There was not the slightest suggestion of ‘hard selling’ and I felt confident in taking his advice. He was helpful in pointing out the options, e.g. buying my old car.

– Mrs V. Emery.


Speech Marks

Zach knew his subject well and how to find out the more difficult things. He was my prime point of contact at Progress and I never needed to seek out anyone else. He proved himself trustworthy, knowledgeable and has a good sense of humour.
