Here at TMS we realise that our customers are as special as the cars they purchase. Not everyone appreciates true quality. Not everyone is careful enough to consider all the real virtues of a car before they buy. For the people who choose TMS, our total aim in life is to continue to justify that decision by providing the finest support services that we and our brand partners can devise.
Please see some comments from our customers below:
We looked via Kia website at a large number of dealers throughout the UK and Hinckley appeared to have amongst the best choices. Although the dealership is a fair way from us, we decided to visit and we were not disappointed. We had a specific choice in mind and after being introduced to Dave Webb, we then were led down a trouble free path to purchase. Dave was extremely helpful and answered all our queries promptly, and we were introduced to Simon on the service side and Alison in administration. We asked for a couple of minor adjustments which were attended to without quibble. We highly recommend this friendly efficient team and we will certainly return to Dave Webb in the future. Well done TMS!

Dear Dave, thanks so much for your call yesterday and sorry that we missed you but we were offline in the middle of the woods walking Snoopy - and yes we can confirm we are really, really happy with the Freelander (still trying to figure out the last technical gadgets but that is part of the fun :-)).
Also we would like to say a big thank you for your outstanding service and your open and honest approach (and the lovely flowers! It didn’t fully register with me when you said it, thought it might be a little joke). We felt extremely well looked after throughout the process and fully understand now first hand why Kia Hinckley won the best customer service award. Should we ever consider switching to Kia we will certainly buy our next car with you again! Please let us know if there is a way where and how we can get this feedback also to an official place for your benefit.
Have a great and relaxing holiday - we will take the Freelander on her first continental ride on Wednesday for 10 days in Germany.
Thanks again and best wishes,
Marianne and Torsten
On arrival at TMS we met Gwen Willett who first established our requirements and then guided us through the process of car selection, purchase and collection. She is very knowledgeable and professional and was helpful throughout. She rang us a week after we collected the car to see how we were getting on with it and again offered her help with any queries we may have. Excellent.
The sales man was kind, and worked out a probe that was right for us and was quick and efficient to get the car to us as soon as possible.
Excellent customer service, Gwen was superb as was Lee.
I cannot fault this dealership; they are a credit to the Kia family. All the staff I came into contact with were friendly, extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Gwen was extremely helpful and understanding; she coped so very well on my first visit when I was accompanied by my friend and her severely disabled daughter, whose behaviour can be very challenging. Gwen took everything in her stride and even got a hug from Kaitlyn! In my opinion Gwen went above and beyond the call of duty to speed up the purchase process on my behalf and ensure that everything went super smoothly. I have recommended this dealership to my brother and friends. Thank you Gwen and TMS.
Wow, What can I say. Massive thank you to Eddie for giving me the BEST
customer experience with my new car. It was easy, stress-free and I felt so
comfortable how he dealt with everything. Even a bouquet of flowers on
collection which was a massive surprise. Thanks Eddie, You were awesome!!
Just bought a used vehicle from TMS Kia Hinckley and I've got to say everything about the experience was perfect Anti was the sales man as far as I'm concerned he should be put up for a company customer award the way he handled everything from start to finish was well above Kia Volvo or TMS expectations Thanks for everything you have made what is normally a frustrating time into a smooth transaction that put smiles on our faces
We have already recommended them to our neighbours who are in the process of buying a new Sportage from TMS.
Professional, courteous, knowledgeable, this is our third car from these people and over the many visits we have paid them visits they never fail to treat us with the utmost respect and friendliness, so much so that I have just put our neighbour in touch with them and they are in the process of buying a Sportage this week. We now own two Kia's but in total have owned four, my husband drives a Rio and their attention to detail is second to none, they collect the cars from our places of work when servicing is due and return them perfectly valeted inside and out. My husband has been in the motor trade for many years and believes them to be as professional as it can get, we would not feel comfortable recommending this company to friends if we had doubts about their ability to support both us and your product.
Jeremy the sales manager is a star, a really friendly guy who gives you confidence in the company and the product. We were taken through the sales process by Dave another very pleasant and knowledgeable professional.
The value for money of the car and the customer care is excellent. So helpful, patient and understanding with any needs or requests I had. Anti Nurmine: helped make the surprise of revealing the car to my partner so special with a great set up from start to finish which he was more than happy to help with. Nothing seemed like too much to ask for.
I was kept fully informed on the purchase and any appointments made were always on time. Dave was brilliant from start to finish. I had all the information I needed to decide which model to choose and which options to go for and I felt very confident in Dave dealing with the purchase. Every member of staff that I spoke to was efficient and professional. The purchase was very easy. Many thanks.
Great service TMS Hinckley, they make you feel like you’re a VIP. Dave Webb was my tms representative thanks great service!
Gwen Willett was so helpful and made everything so easy. I wasn't set on a Kia when I visited the showroom, but I purchased a Sportage as I was so impressed with the vehicle and the staff.
No pressure salespeople. Very helpful very good part ex. Friendly staff everything explained clearly. Eddie Goode, this is the 2nd new car I've bought from him, is very knowledgeable, nothing too much trouble. All in all a very good salesman.
As a woman I usually dread walking into car dealerships! Anticipating the moment that you'll get pounced on by pushy 'know it all' sales people that just totally ruin the experience. It is safe to say that from the moment I stepped foot into Kia Hinckley I was treated with the up most respect & courtesy.
Eddie Goode was my sales representative and I really believe he deserves special recognition. I usually get baffled by 'car specs' 'finance' 'PCP plans' etc but Eddie explained everything so clearly, answered all my questions, offered me a test drive there & then, gave me excellent details on the Sportage, and when I thought it was going to fall down due to outstanding finance on my then existing car he managed to rework the numbers for me so I was still able to afford my dream car! Eddie even stepped in and sorted the finance with me due to staff sickness of who I was supposed to be meeting with. Nothing was too much trouble at all. Meaning I got to drive away in my dream car just 10 days after my initial meeting.
I really believe a lot of other sale representatives could learn a lot from Eddie in his mannerisms and approach to selling!
Absolutely loved the day I picked up my Sportage with it being parked up in the show room, Eddie thoroughly went through everything and even got a bunch of flowers! I felt very special!
Will absolutely be recommending to anyone looking for a new car.
So thank you Eddie for making the experience such an enjoyable and stress free one!!
Gwen Willett was amazing. She was funny and very helpful. Also the manager came over as he remembered us from 3 years ago. I thought that was lovely.
Eddy Goode was just his natural self, nothing like a pushy car salesman, and made everything easy from start to finish.
Sales man Dave Webb very patient man when i arrived I didn't know which vehicle i wonted Dave showed me lots of different models and trim levels and explained how various extras worked and why they were needed. This enabled me to make my mind up.
Anti was very professional, but friendly service. Made the whole process, from browsing cars to sale and part exchange of previous car, very smooth and hassle free.

It’s local and has a good reputation all the staff that i have come into contact with seem very nice.
Dave Webb was very knowledgeable, easy to converse with, customer friendly and an all-round good chap. Complete first class service from start to finish.
Very professional but friendly service. Made the whole process from browsing cars to sale and part exchange of previous car very smooth and hassle free. Love the car. Great friendly service by staff. I have told all friends, family and work colleagues to go to TMS Hinckley to look for their next car as customer service is excellent.
The sales people I dealt with were Jeremy initially, who was extremely helpful on the day considering I literally just walked into the showroom. We identified the potential new cars and he made an appointment for me to go in and test drive a few days later. He made me feel that my custom was very valued and they wanted to part exchange my Sportage for a new car.
I had a coffee and a look around the cars in the showroom, which was spotless, well-lit and all the cars looked beautiful. I received a phone call promptly on the Monday from Anti, who was to be my salesman from this point on. On meeting I found him to be very smart, knowledgeable young man and keen to help me get the new car I was interested in, again feeling very valued as a customer.
Everything was explained in good detail and I'd made the decision to go for the Kia Soul Mixx after seeing one in a car park recently and although there wasn't this model in the showroom , I test drove an urban model and liked it . I wasn't so keen on the changes to the Sportage and wanted something a bit funkier!
I left the showroom to decide on which car during a few days holiday I had arranged. On my return Anti had put the exact deal together for me perfectly, Anti sent me a picture of the car in the showroom with my name on a stand next to it, but it was covered up, so more suspense!
When I arrived to pick up the car, we had an unveiling and photographs and the roof bars i wanted and life shine were added, at no extra cost, so I was soooo happy. It looked beautiful. I couldn't have been better treated if it had been a Rolls Royce!!
To finish, a lovely bouquet of flowers and drive it out of the showroom myself.
All I can say, is WOW guys .... You really did me proud.
Never ever had the experience of buying a car like this before .I can't thank you enough.
TMS Hinckley are fantastic!
Initially I brought a Sorento, needed a 7 seater with 4 kids. I've loved the car, but circumstances have changed in my life where I need to try and save money where possible. Eddie was great, very chatty, supportive and understanding of my needs. It took me a long time to make the decision to down size. But Eddie was very patient. He didn't pester me with phone calls and just helped me make the decision.
They were very patient and informative, I was not pressurised to make a decision. Using the car for a few hours to test it was a real bonus. The finale in revealing the car was a lovely touch and made it really special. Shame I couldn't have continues to have the heated seat with the Sportage due to my budget.
The whole experience of purchasing my vehicle and part exchanging my Kia Sportage at TMS Hinckley was absolutely fantastic. Anti Nurmine the sales person who lead me all the way through the whole course of my purchasing my Kia Niro with absolute professionalism all through the journey from the start of placing my order to taking the delivery of my Kia Niro, this also includes communication from Anti Nurmine along that journey as he kept me informed all the way as to where my vehicle was on its journey from South Korea.
It has to be said that I bought my Kia Sportage from another franchise in 2012 and believe you me that franchise comes know where near as to how TMS go about their business in the form of selling cars and the backup service they provide, an absolute delight to deal with and I will be back for more in 2017 when my partner will being looking at changing her vehicle for a brand new Kia Rio or Ceed Hybrid.
Anti Nurmine spent 4 hours going through the mechanics of the technology of my new Kia Niro before I left the showroom, fantastic!
My partner was taken aback when she received a lovely bouquet of flowers which I thought was a lovely touch for the whole experience of buying my Kia Niro from TMS at Hinckley.
Anti Nurmine was my sales person who led me on my journey to own a new Kia Niro, please congratulate him on his ten out of ten experience toward myself and my partner was absolutely exhilarating. Well done to him
The whole dealership personnel I came into contact with ALWAYS spoke to me by means of good morning or afternoon and that included Jeremy the MD.
I would also like to mention Simon in service reception always happy to help me when I had my Sportage in for service or other issues I had for him to sort.
Both my partner were very impressed with TMS and the whole experience they produce to make you feel at home as well as customer focused and time was never and issue for Anti or Simon to converse with to obtain information which was relevant to myself.
Excellent standards here at TMS keep it up and move onward and upwards Very Well done to all at TMS Hinckley.
Just another note here for your information I did not receive half of what I got on the customer attention side when I purchased my Kia Sportage from a previous dealership.
PS: Please give this dealership the No 1 dealership award in the UK, they really deserve it, with their whole attitude of being customer focused and the want and will for us the customer to come back for more!!
Congratulations Kia Hinckley.
Gwen was looking after us and was absolutely fantastic. She made the experience of buying a new car hassle free. She explained our options clearly and went above and beyond in helping us stay on the road while our new car was being made. This is our first new buy purchase and because of gwen and the team it has been a pleasant one which we would recommend to all friends and family. Thank you for your friendly and informative service. We love our new family car.
D & S.P
To have my new car covered, in the showroom with a congratulations board with my name on it, and being able to drive it out the showroom was great. Anti even videoed me doing that and then receiving a box of flowers it was just a wonderful experience. I can't praise anti enough for the service and help he gave me before, during and after and also the service I received from lee with regard to the finance side of things. I love my car and can't. Imagine me ever wanting to go to any other dealership
Very professional but friendly service. Made the whole process from browsing cars to sale and part exchange of previous car very smooth and hassle free.
Eddie Goode did a fantastic job for us. Very friendly (not pushy) service, so that we got what we wanted. Went out of his way to make sure everything was followed up.
Jeremy Jones - personable, knowledgeable and professional. He made the purchase of our KIA Sportage really memorable! On collection day, he put the car in the showroom under a big red cover, with a sign tailored for my car keen 8 year old daughter (who was due to collect it with me) 'Welcome to KIA, Freya's Mummy & Daddy' - she was delighted!
I must congratulate you on a member of your staff who looked after us when we came to order a Kia Venga. Ed the Motability man was quite exceptional in his approach and is a credit to your dealership. He was very professional and courteous. When we came to collect the car he made us feel very special indeed. We have had many cars from all sorts of dealerships but in 12 years of being a Motability customer we have never been so well looked after.
Well done Ed and TMS keep it up! – TMS Kia Hinckley
I brought a car off Eddie What a brilliant service from all the team
at TMS fantastic service can't praise them enough thanks guys love my new car
- TMS Kia Hinckley
This is just a short note to thank you for a brilliant experience at your dealership. The Ford Kuga that we purchased is a wonderful car and although it wasn’t a new car the condition, preparation, valeting and servicing was exemplary.
Your Sales Person, Dave Webb, was outstanding from the outset. He was polite, sociable and very professional and although I know it is his job to sell cars he wasn’t overzealous or pushy. He listened to us and our requirements and assisted us in any way he could to achieve us getting the car in a deal that suited the customer and not the selling criteria alone. He was friendly towards us as people and not just about getting our cash.
This is car selling at its best – we arrived as strangers and left as friends.
Dave Webb has the perfect attitude as a salesman. He was positive in his job but friendly too and this did help to secure the deal. If only all dealerships were like this. I did joke about getting flowers in the car and it was only when we changed drivers halfway back that we found them on the back seat – a lovely touch
We can’t thank Dave Webb enough and we will certainly be back again to buy from you and are already recommending you.
Many thanks – TMS Kia Hinckley

Customer service was excellent, made to feel comfortable. Edward and lee made me feel at ease with the whole process of buying a new car, answered all my questions and I was made to feel like a valued customer.

Having received delivery of my Kia Cee'd, may I thank your company in particular Anti for the excellent support prior to purchase through to delivery. Anti was exceptional throughout and was a pleasure to deal with . I found Anti to be well informed , always answered any questions and kept in touch re every aspect of the pre-purchase through purchase and then delivery. Unfortunately being in Fife I cannot thank him personally. Having looked at a Cee'd at my local dealership your company was miles ahead (pun ) so thank you TMS!

I have been a customer of TMS for several years and like the way that they operate - polite, welcoming, helpful and interested in me as a person and not just because I own a Kia. The gentleman that I think deserves a big pat on the back is Anti Nurmine. His enthusiasm for both TMS and the Kia range of vehicles was immediately apparent. After my test drive and decision to buy, he explained the range of options open to me for my purchase and did not try to push me into making a decision. I did not feel as though I was being rushed at any point and enjoyed the chat about families, jobs and life in general - as though I was talking to a friend. I appreciated the bouquet of flowers that he gave my wife upon collection of my car and also the coffee - all in all a great experience - well done Anti!
R.B – TMS Kia
Best dealership I have ever used. Brilliant customer service throughout. Anti Nurmine made everything so easy. By far the best service my wife and I have ever experienced in any dealership. Very knowledgeable, kept us constantly updated about our car and made the hand over a brilliant experience for my entire family. Will 100% be coming back here again for the foreseeable future of car purchases.
N.P – TMS Kia
Apart from being very happy with my new Kia, the dealership contributed to the best car purchasing experience as explained in the previous question. From the moment I walked into the showroom to the day I drove off in my new car, the service was exceptional. I felt at ease and not at all pressured, this was the best experience I have had when purchasing a car, even down to special touches like being able to drive out of the showroom and the beautiful flowers I received when I collected my car.
M.J – TMS Kia
The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff made our experience a very comfortable one. Brilliant service all round, everyone at tms made us feel comfortable, and were fantastic in giving a friendly and hassle free sale from start to finish. Anti Nurmine, this guy deserves a medal, he was fantastic right from the very start, I first approached Anti regarding a new KIA and he was very helpful in helping us decide on a deal that best suited us, in regards of the right car and of course the price, very pleased with the service we were given by Anti and he has been great in keeping in contact with us through the whole order process and also a follow up to make sure we are happy with everything and there are no problems with our new car.
N.A – TMS Kia
David Webb was very helpful from the moment I walked through the door. I cannot fault the branch in anyway and am very pleased with the vehicle. David Webb, lovely man with extensive knowledge of the vehicles on offer. David made the whole experience easy and I loved the little touch of flowers on the back seat when I went to pick up the vehicle. This really made me feel special and that I was a valued customer.
E.S – TMS Kia
Today I collected my new lease KIA from your branch. I just wanted to say that both Nick Carter and Lee Asplin went above and beyond to ensure that everything went according to plan. It was't straight forward as I needed the car to go to France tomorrow but Nick really made this possible and Lee ensured that I fully understood everything. I had researched KIA fully and your staff were exceptional in their service. When I arrived at the showroom, Nick made my mother, daughter and I feel very at ease.
I hope that you can share this email with both of your staff as I was so impressed with their professionalism and service - you should be very proud of them both.
Thank you so much. - TMS Hinckley Kia
We have had two Kia Sportages, one purchased from Burton Kia and the current one from TMS Kia. Our experiences with Burton Kia were very trying at times, so much so that we went to Loughborough Kia, but the service here was even worse and we were charged over at hundred pounds for a fault that did not exist. We have taken our new car back to TMS for the first service and were completely satisfied with every aspect of the service, the customer care and the welcome we received.
We feel we must mention our Salesman, Anti, who gave us such good service when we purchased the vehicle, fully understanding our requirements and ensuring that the vehicle was ready for us to go on holiday. After our previous experience with Burton Kia, he made our purchase and the details of the service plan, etc. very clear to us and we felt that we could actually purchase another Sportage. He rang several times to check that we were satisfied or if we had any questions. He has also telephoned on a couple of occasions to check if everything was ok. When we took the car for our six months check he came over to see us and again at the 12 month service. Also Simon, The Service Advisor, who we had had contact with at a previous Kia dealer, who gave us back our confidence in the Kia Service. - TMS Kia Hinckley

I dealt mainly with Anti - he was very knowledgeable, helpful and not at all a 'pushy salesman' which was a breath of fresh air!! This is the first time we have used TMS (Hinckley) but I definitely don't think it will be our last. I would like to recommend Anti Nurmine. We really couldn't fault the way he dealt with us at all - very friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating as to times for the test drive and further visits to complete the paperwork and the final handover. To be quite honest I have experienced nothing but 'pushy' salesman in the past who give you a load of spiel and you end up not believing a word they say - Anti was completely different - it helped that the car sold itself but he gave us the time to decide what we wanted to do - he was there to help us make the right decision rather than 'sell a car'. - TMS Kia Hinckley

The service is always excellent but I felt you really went the extra mile, pardon the pun!
The car was returned serviced, fully valeted and even the little extras like the tin of sweets just make that service feel extra special. The repairs could not be fully completed but you ran a temporary repair that enabled me to go on holiday with air conditioning which was perfect. The car is now booked in to finish the repairs & I actually look forward to bringing my car back knowing it will be a good experience.
Thank you Kia I will definitely be recommending you! - TMS Kia Hinckley

I spoke with the sale consultant Eddie Goode who was brilliant. He displayed calmness, sincerity, genuine interest in me as a customer and a desire to help me with my purchase and answer all and many questions I asked him. He was extremely professional and courteous throughout the time he dealt with me which was the main reason I returned to buy the car I did. I cannot abide pushy sales teams and my experience with this consultant as well as the other team members (Anti, Lee (Financial) as well as Jeremy the Kia sales manager) left me feeling positive and that I had purchased a quality car with a very reliable team to fall back on should I encounter any problems. I would certainly recommend TMS Hinckley to others. Excellent service. - TMS Kia Hinckley

I dealt with Gwen Willet, and I found her extremely helpful, was able to answer all of my questions and helped me find the exact car that I was looking for, without trying to get me to have something that I didn't want/need. I was made to feel exceptionally welcome every time I visited Kia, and nothing was too much trouble. I felt very at ease with Gwen, and because of my excellent experience, I would definitely recommend Kia to anyone. - TMS Kia Hinckley

We always get plenty of staff asking us if we want another cup of tea or coffee. Both Simon and Eddie come over and have a natter about things in general and tell us about new models or new models coming in. Nothing is too much trouble and if I ask a question they have got the answer. Both of them really make us feel welcome. Well done to both of them.Thanks lads 10/10. - TMS Kia Hinckley

Family was present when car was purchased and they saw how good the service was with me. Have recommended a lot.

Dave Webb, on both occasions of buying cars, he was very good. we have a Kia dealership only 2 miles away from us, but we will always come back to TMS because of Dave and Lee. Dave makes the occasion special when purchasing a new car, he sets up radio stations, bluetooth and any other requests before driving off, he also looks to get the best deal possible.Lee dealt with financial side and was very helpful. - TMS Kia Hinckley

I am writing to express my thanks to all the staff at TMS, Hinckley. I have been a customer on the Volvo Motors side of TMS for many years and would just like to say how much of a joy and pleasure it has been dealing with the staff on this side.
All the staff, Tony in particular have been so kind, professional and courteous towards me whilst still managing to be friendly and very receptive in conversation and small talk. Indeed, I would now class Tony has a friend rather than merely just the gentleman who dealt with my vehicle. Also, further to this Moira and Richard have always been very friendly and chirpy in a most kindly fashion which really puts a person at ease when entering the establishment. It is at this point that I must also include Andy, the salesman in the Volvo Motors side, who is truly a master of his trade and is one of the nicest people one could wish to meet. He has been most informative with any information on any Vehicles I have been interested in and does so with a real professionalism, but is also a person with which I have shared more than one funny and comedic moment with whilst visiting Volvo. These staff I believe are what makes TMS such a profound success......a real Analogue, Human and Hands on touch in an otherwise Digital Age.
And so I have moved next door to TMS Kia, and on to a new brand and set of staff.
Again, I am most delighted to report that the staff on the Kia side are absolutely brilliant. Anti, in particular has been excellent and a real professional whilst being a truly nice person to deal with and has made purchasing my new vehicle a real stress free experience which I am thankful of. Lee in finance also deserves a mention has he is a true gent and has advised and been so helpful with things. Indeed, I could sing the praises of all the staff at both sides of TMS Hinckley for many more words. Instead I shall just say that all the staff at TMS are a real credit to the company and that I am thankful for and the continued service that they give each and every time I visit.
Dear Mr Hallows, we purchased a Kia Soul on 24th September from TMS. Your sales consultant Anti Nurmine was dealing with us throughout. He has been very helpful, caring and courteous. He gave us excellent service and looked after us very well. We could not ask for a better salesman. We were extremely satisfied with his service. He seems very enthusiastic in his job. We were treated like VIPs. Thanks for the flowers. They were beautiful and much appreciated. Thanks for everything, yours sincerely...

Our experience with TMS Kia Hinckley started when we first walked through the door where Dave Webb greeted us. Can't praise Dave enough. We found him to be very helpful, polite, informative and very professional. In fact, the whole of the Kia team were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble. Great, fantastic drive in the Sportage!
