Hares of Sussex

Hares of Sussex

Specialists in supplying quality & professionally prepared used cars for over 100 years

Hares was established in 1908. They manufactured bicycles and along with others delved into motorisation in bikes and then eventually cars. In the 1960's the company had branches in several towns and villages in the area and this included a BMC/Rover dealership at our current site.

Our previous site at Station Road was our home since 1926. In 2014 we took the difficult decision to move from our long term home and to purchase the site we left in the 1960's.

Hares have come home

This is a new and exciting time for Hares, now renamed Hares of Sussex.

We can now display 40-50 cars for sale including a large showroom with room for 8 cars.

We have a fully equipped workshop with all the latest diagnostic equipment.

We will always offer excellent value for money.

You can always be assured of a warm welcome at Hares. We look forward to being of service to you, your family and your friends.

Mem Nicholaides is the General Manager and Ryan Goodyer is our new addition to Sales after Alastair Roberts retired. We wish Alastair a long and healthy retirement, he will be missed by all of us.

"I have a great team at Hares. I have created a relaxed sales environment, I don't like hard selling, don't agree with it, never have. I worked in new car sales for many years and I left as I did not agree with their selling practices. I sell how I wish to be sold to, with respect and courtesy. Come in and see us for a friendly welcome and great service."

We are now where it all started, back at 3 North Lane, East Preston, back beside those train tracks that the locals like so much. We will be here for a long time.
