Barretts is one of the few family businesses that have been trading in Canterbury since the turn of the last century, providing unique, personal and first-class customer service across Kent.
We're passionate about making the car buying process an enjoyable and seamless experience, with a team of friendly and professional staff that put you in the driver's seat.
We have dealerships across Ashford and Canterbury, which specialise in new and used car sales for both personal and business use. We also offer the Motability Scheme at selected dealerships.
Each site is equipped with state-of-the-art service facilities operated by a team of professional and knowledgeable technicians. Our technicians are manufacturer-trained to the high standards of each brand and the high standards of Barretts, making them the true experts of your car.
Barretts also benefits from an award-winning Accident Repair Centre based in Hersden, Canterbury. This large facility handles everything from minor scuffs and scrapes to full bodywork reconstruction. To find out more click here.
We pride ourselves on customer service, and with over 120 years of experience, we know the level of service our customers expect to receive from a trusted family-owned and operated business.
Our service to you doesn’t stop when you leave our forecourts. We're here to provide assistance and advice whenever you need it, and that's why we build the strong, long-lasting relationships we have with our customers.

Each of our sites have comfortable waiting areas equipped with televisions and refreshments for our customers. These areas are also home to our branded merchandise, which can be purchased from our showrooms by asking one of our team members.
