Company description
In March 2007, Platts Garages staged a spectacular launch for our new state-of-the-art showrooms, built alongside existing premises, in Lightwood Road, Longton, Stoke-on-Trent. The £2 million, three-storey building is one of the first of its kind in Stoke-on-Trent and the move has seen the number of employees at the site rise from 65 to over 100. Fiat vehicles are stocked on the ground floor whilst Alfa Romeo are situated on the first floor and the top level houses luxury offices. Meanwhile, new franchises Daihatsu, Proton, SSangYong, Perodua and Piaggio have moved into the existing showrooms.

Platts- Longton (Jeep)...Bought my first Jeep today. The whole purchase experience was very smooth. All completed from one Saturday seeing and choosing a car and agreeing on a deal, to the following Saturday, picking it up. James of Platts was really very helpful and patient. From a good test drive on the first spending time setting up the gadgets for me in the car and explaining what was available and how to use the controls before setting off with the call. Well recommended!

Never had dealings with Platts before. I purchased a Fiat Punto from another dealer and unfortunately no radio code was passed on to me. I contacted Platts, Longton. I spoke to five members of staff and all were pleasant, polite and very helpful even though my enquiry/request was trivial and of no monetary gain to them. I cannot thank them enough for helping me out. Mrs Trigger

AVOID!! Bought a car from Platts - Lightwood Road, Longton. They registered my car - a year later when I cam to tax my car I found out they had registered the previous owner again rather than myself. This meant I had to fill in a V62 and wait 4 -6 weeks for a new logbook to arrive before I could tax the car. Platt's refused any liability of the problem - despite it being them who had filled out the form incorrectly. They refused to provide me with a courtesy car, therefore putting my job on the line as I couldn't get there. Atrocious customer service, inability to except any blame or show any regard for peoples day to day liven - heaven forbid anybody from Platts ever use the word 'Sorry'. Unable to return calls unless they want something from you. I have only rater them a one star as it wouldn't allow to rate them none. DON'T USE.

Useless! PRATTS OF STAFFORD! They diagnosed my Van, wanted to charge a completely insane amount per hour to fix it, couldn't even give me a price of the part to fix it. I went to another garage with the diagnosis, got them to carry out the work that Platts said needed doing only for them to replace the part and it not be at fault!! They even tested it at there own cost only to discover there was no fault! Platts refused to collect my van and re-diagnose it, then they refused to offer any kind of apology for there wrongful diagnosis, they have refused any compensation and not even refunded me the £60 for the diagnosis! So thanks to this garage, I am £1650 worse off! The real issue would of cost not more than £300 to get fixed! I am now taking them to court to get my money back. David James Platt, you and your family should be ashamed to have your name on this place, worst I've ever been treated by any garage, Own up and admit your mistakes!
