All these testimonials pretty much sums up our fantastic experience with Mike. A really big thank you to you for all your help in getting us the perfect car to suit our family.

We just purchased a car from Mike today and were blown away by his service. From start to finish Mike was friendly, helpful and accommodating. He was patient as we worked through things on our side and did all he could from his end to make everything work for us. Mike took extra time to show us how everything worked and pointed us in the right direction for future care, definitely went the extra mile in many ways. Wouldn’t hesitate one bit to recommend to anyone looking to buy.

                                                                       Jena + Mike Hamilton

It's not often you encounter an honest car salesman but Mike is certainly one of them. He was straight up, super helpful and organised for additional servicing and modifications. On top of that the car was immaculate, I'd recommend Mike and HBC to anyone.

                                                                         Stuart Kuus - Auckland

We are now on our second vehicle from HBC Vehicle Wholesale and they have both been fantastic. Mike is great to deal with and his knowledge, experience and eye for detail ensures that you have peace of mind with your purchase. We are looking forward to the next vehicle we get from HBC already!

After looking through trademe for a new car I found a Mazda Axela that took my liking. After speaking with Mike who was straight up and a likeable guy I decided to take the risk and purchase the car only going by pictures and his word. I drove up from Waitara on the weekend to pick it up , when I arrived Mike was there waiting, the car looked awesome it was everything and more that Mike said it was. I did not even bother to test drive it. After doing the hassle free paper work and getting a run down on the vehicle I was off and it was a dream to drive. I could not of asked for a better deal thanks again.          

                                                             Kerry Waters - Waitara

We bought a Mazda MPV from Mike, travelled down from Auckland viewed, test drove and bought the car all in one day, vehicle was in great condition and very happy with purchase. Mike was straight forward and helpful which made the purchase process quick and easy, would definitely buy again from Mike and will recommend to family and friends. Thanks Mike

                                                              Ray Cowley - Auckland

After recently purchasing from Mike, I will be recommending to anyone I know who is considering buying a vehicle that they see Mike. If he doesn’t already have what they want, he will go out of his way to help you find it. My family were very impressed with the quality and presentation of all of his vehicles. The photos he posts do not do justice to his stock. Mike is friendly and knowledgeable, he doesn’t need to use ‘hard sell’ techniques as his product quality and pricing means he doesn’t need to. Mike accommodated our need for a viewing which was out of usual hours due to the fact we work shifts and had to travel. Thank you Mike.

                                                             Michelle McIntyre - Rotorua

We purchased a Mazda Axela from Mike in May. He was really helpful and knowledgeable. He was really flexible for us as we travelled from out of town to view the car. The car was in immaculate condition and had a super low mileage. We would definitely purchase from Mike again in the future.

                                                              Matt Gaunt - Rotorua

I just bought an immaculate Subaru Legacy 3.0R wagon from Mike and I will buy from him again and have absolutely no reservations in recommending him to anyone looking for a Vehicle. The cars are extremely tidy and are at the next level from most dealers. Extremely tidy grade 4.5 and 5's all day. Mike went out of his way to get the car ready for me very quickly, such a breath of fresh air to deal with some one with a true passion for what he does Cheers Mike
                                                           James Bradley - Cambridge

My first major purchase through trade me was the vehicle I brought off Mike in March 2018. Being from the South Island I purchased the vehicle prior to seeing it, putting my trust in Mike that it would be as good as he described it. It was absolutely everything he said it was, immaculate condition is an understatement. The process of purchasing this vehicle was made seemless by Mike, such a trustworthy and genuine guy to deal with. Thrilled to drive away in a vehicle that was everything I hoped it would be and more. Made for brilliant and memorable 700km road trip home. Thanks again!                                           

                                                       Bronwyn Inglis - Motueka

We have just purchased our 2nd car from Mike. We are once again totally satisfied. Thanks Mike for once again giving us an honest run down on the vehicle it is performing exactly how you said it would. We tell anyone that is looking for a vehicle to visit your site before going anywhere else.

                                                       Gavin + Jenny Woodmass - Cambridge

Been looking for a car last year and saw HBCVW and read good testimonials. I decided to deal with HBCVW and bought a CRV; been driving the car for half a year now and very satisfied with it, wife is also very happy. Have already recommended Mike to a friend of mine. Hope to deal with Mike again with our next car. Cheers!

                                                         Nolan Sangueza - New Plymouth

After reading all these testimonials I felt very much impressed to write my own testimonial. My experience with Mike has been nothing short of total and complete satisfaction. I looked at a car and had to wait until I had transferred the money from another country. Mike held the car for me and then we did the transaction. I have been more than happy with the the entire purchase and now my wife needs a car and I certainly won't be going anywhere else. Appreciate dealing with integrity - thank you Mike.
                                                                  Andy Gray - Tauranga

The car was exactly what Mike said, it was perfect condition, he even held it for two weeks. This is the 2nd car from Mike, great to deal with. Thanks Mike will be back again.

                                                                  Paul Brocklehurst - Napier

Unreservedly we would recommend Mike when purchasing a vehicle. Mike's Dad was a man of integrity and Mike is the same. Be wise only purchase from Mike.

                                                                 Tina + John Peters - Auckland

I would like to highly recommend this company for buying a vehicle! Mike was super helpful and went above and beyond to help me find the right car. I have recommended everyone I know to use him and will keep doing so 😊 It's not often u find a genuine car sales man that actually sells amazing cars! look forward to dealing with u again in the future when we need an upgrade.

                                                                   Maz Pheby  -  Hamilton

Mike was super helpful with the purchase of my first car! He was fast in replying to my emails and super helpful, answering all of my questions. It was such a breeze buying my car from him! I am definitely passing on his information to friends and family who are looking to buy cars. Thank you so much Mike, look forward to buying more cars from you in the future!

                                                                 Jelisha Patel - Auckland

We had trouble with our insurance company, looked on trade me for a car, saw Mike's ad, contacted him and he held the vehicle for us. The man is a great guy to deal with, very understanding, will let friends know where to buy great vehicles from. Next car WILL be bought from Mike.

                                                                  Lee  - Palmerston North

The car was exactly as advertised and in perfect condition. We couldn't have wished for better or more efficient service. Everything done via email and phone and we had friends pick the car up so it could have been a lottery, but it was a great experience. Thanks very much we would do business with Mike again and recommend to others.

                                                       Sandy + Steve Turnwald - Levin

Mike went above and beyond during my search for the perfect car, he was always honest with his response to my multitude of queries. Nothing seemed to be a problem  - would send me pics of dashboards and interior without hesitation ( I was unable to travel to view the cars in person) so this type of service was above and beyond.  Customer for life here :) pleasure dealing with you Mike :)           
                                                            Dayle Campbell - Fielding

Amazing service, so friendly and helpful, nothing was any trouble, he was very accommodating on all our questions, Mike offered to help out with the sale of our other car we had and went out of his way to fit in with us for collection etc. Hayley and Arron say it all really, we would certainly buy another car from Mike and recommend him to all looking for a great car. All the best for your future Mike and lovely family.

                                                            Jo + Darryl Karl - Putaruru

Our experience with Mike at HBC was nothing but positive. He was nothing but friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. We travelled through from Feilding to view the car we were interested in and it was well worth the trip. Mike held the car for us so that we didn't arrive and it was sold. The car exceeded our expectations and we couldn't be happier with it. The car was well priced and far better value for money than others we had seen around at the time. Our experience was great. No overwhelming male perfume or pointy shoes. No empty sales pitch or half truths- we had had plenty of these at other dealers so were weary. Mike made the process comfortable, was upfront and honest and a genuinely nice guy to deal with. We couldn't recommend him highly enough.

                                                                 Hayley + Arron Wilkes - Fielding

Well what can I say AWESUM AWESUM AWESUM, after 5 very stressful weeks looking for a car I came across HBC Vehicle Wholesale. I gave Mike a ring and he promised to hold the car till we arrived to look at it (we had to travel from Rotorua) Within 2 hours I was on my way home with a new car !! Mike was super friendly, accomodating, knowledgeable (not like the normal car sales people you come across) lol. I'm wondering if perhaps you should take up real estate haha. Anyway extremely happy and most grateful for the excellent service you provided, thanks again.

                                                                   Jenny and Vaughan - Rotorua

We moved back from Australia and needed a car. After looking all over Hamilton we didn't find a vehicle. Our son got us Mike's phone number from his mate and so we gave him a call. Even though he was on holiday Mike still gave up his time to speak to us. We met and discussed what sort of vehicle we required. He was very informative and knowledgeable about all vehicles. We felt very relaxed and comfortable with him right away. He was very genuine and honest about all the vehicles he had. We highly recommend anyone in need of a vehicle to contact Mike before going anywhere else.                 

                                                      Jenny + Gavin Woodmass - Cambridge

Just bought a Toyota Caldina 2007 that had done only 16000 Kms. It was certainly a good value purchase. Dealing with Mike was a wonderful experience right from the time I called for the appointment to the point when I took delivery of the car. My son who was with me was also very impressed with both the quality of the car and the salesmanship. Cant forget the bottle of wine that came with the car. Cheers !!

                                                                   Brian Hickman - Auckland

We recently purchased a Mazda MPV off Mike and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone; in fact that's exactly what we are doing. Mike was patient, helpful and provided us with an amazing car - we love it! We found the whole experience easy and totally trust his advice. Thanks Mike, we'll be buying any future cars from you!

                                                                    Tamra + Mark  -  Napier

I recently bought a Honda Oddysey off Mike I am delighted with it, its a superb example of this marque. We also service and check over many of Mikes cars and every one has been of exceptional quality. I recommend HBC cars to all my customers

I recently brought a Suzuki Swift from HBC Vehicle Wholesale, I found Mike very welcoming and helpful throughout the whole process. He even installed a new stereo into it prior to me picking it up for a discounted price! I am extremely happy with my car and am very thankful for his amazing service, I will definitely recommend his services to all I know!

"I came to Mike via a referral by a family friend and right from the outset felt very comfortable with his approach to selling cars and dealing with customers. Mike actively sought out what we were after based on some loose requirements we gave him and also provided like alternatives for another model that we hadn't previously pursued. 

Throughout the process
 Mike kept in contact with frequent updates and when we'd made a decision on what we wanted he was flexible with viewing arrangements. The end result was a car that was very well priced and in impeccable condition. Beyond the closure of the sale Mike has also been very receptive to queries for potential referrals.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mike as an honest and thorough dealer who is a pleasure to do business with!

I purchased a van from HBC Vehicle Wholesale about 6 months ago. The purchasing process was made very easy, the van has been amazing and exceeded my expectation. I will definitely be using HBC again and recommend to all.

Mike had the exact car I had been searching for at HBC Vehicle Wholesale. My Mazda Demio was in perfect condition and Mike was great to deal with before and after I had made the purchase. He was reliable, easy to contact and made the whole process easy. Highly recommended :)

                                                                      Anna Griffiths  -  Hamilton

I bought a vehicle from HBC Vehicle Wholesale sight unseen over the phone.
The car exceeded all my expectations, it is absolutely stunning.
Thank you very much Mike, I can assure you I will be recommending you to all my friends and family. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you and I would not hesitate to buy my next car from you.



Our Family has bought two vehicles from Mike at HBC Vehicle Wholesale. Both vehicles were in impeccable condition, and Mike went out of his way to ensure our family members were happy with their purchases. We would not hesitate to buy a car off Mike sight unseen, nor would we have any hesitation recommending any car that Mike has for sale, to any prospective buyers. Mike and his organisation are very professional, courteous, honest and reliable, and there was never any pressure at any time to buy. It was a pleasure doing business with you Mike and we look forward to purchasing a vehicle from you in the near future.

- Peter Antwiss - Auckland

Buying a car from Mike isn't just a business deal, its a personal connection to someone who genuinely cares about the people he deals with. He makes the whole process so easy. I very highly recommend Mike, he is honest, thorough and just so wonderful to deal with. He answered my questions in detail and made me feel confident in my purchase. I am in the South Island, and was wondering how that would go but it was so easy, the delivery company that Mike uses were great and Mike kept me well informed. He will always be my "go to guy" for cars as I know he will always do his best and I recommend him to people at every opportunity because he is so wonderful. You'll find that out yourself when you deal with him and you'll be pleased that you did!

                                                                           Carmen Dudley - Nelson

Mike was great to deal with and the car was so much better than anything we had looked at elsewhere. We will definitely be going straight back to HBC Vehicle Wholesale for the next one!         


                                                                      Kristine Dennis - Whangarei

I have known Mike all his life… Like myself he comes from a well known and respected Motor Trade family. As an A Grade Mechanic (non practising) and an ex Licensed Motor Vehicle Dealer I am very fussy who I buy from or recommend my friends and family buy from.
I have no hesitation in recommending HBC Vehicle Wholesale to you.
You will be treated with honesty and integrity at all times. Good luck with your choice.
                                                                                               Peter Akeroyd - Auckland

I purchased a lovely Toyota Corolla Auris from Michael recently. The car was spotless and such good value, and the service really good - Michael certainly goes the extra mile to make sure his customers are happy, and we will be very happy to use his services again. Thanks so much - Rae

                                                                            Rae Towers - Hamilton

We contacted Mike at HBC Vehicle Wholesale because we were wanting to purchase specific Japanese Import vehicles. Mike helped us by searching for the 2 types of cars that we wanted.

He kept us informed while he was searching and we were very pleased with his regular communications. Mike found us 2 wonderful cars, they were in excellent condition with very low kilometres on the odometer. We found the whole experience rewarding. Mike has a very high attention to detail, is helpful and friendly.

I would recommend HBC Vehicle Wholesale ltd to anyone who needs an excellent quality vehicle.

                                                           Andrew Gafforio + Christina Brown - Orewa

It is with pleasure that we provide a testimonial for HBC Vehicle Wholesale. We were looking for a new car and went to meet the owners Mike and Natalie and to view the stock available. The entire exercise was seamless, such a friendly honest couple who did not do a "hard sell" we had time to make a decision with no pressure and the verbal guarantee that if anything went wrong "just call us" was very assuring and displayed great business values that we trusted.

We have been absolutely delighted with our Mazda. We cannot speak highly enough of the professional, efficient, honest service we received, so much so that we will be upgrading and will not go any where other than back to HBC Vehicle Wholesale, thanks Mike and Natalie.

                                                         Vaughan + Helen Mackereth - Orewa

I have arranged the purchase of 18 vehicles over the past seven years from HBC Vehicle Wholesale for myself and both family and friends. All vehicles have been in top condition and Mike is honest and reliable and a pleasure to do business with.

                                                                  Jeff Barrett - Whangaparaoa

My wife and I are about to buy our third vehicle from Mike at HBC Vehicle Wholesale. We are extremely happy with the two vehicles we have bought through HBC and also appreciate the personal service we have received from Mike who we find to be a very professional and trustworthy operator. So it is our intention to continue dealing with Mike for our future car purchases and have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone looking at buying a quality vehicle.

                                                                        Andy Leighton - Auckland

We highly recommend buying your next car from HBC Vehicle Wholesale. We have purchased several now for ourselves and extended family. Great service and exceptional product.

                                                                            J Collins   -  Red Beach

I have bought two vehicles from Mike at HBC Vehicle Wholesale. My first car was involved in an accident and written off. I contacted Mike knowing it would be hard to get the same as what I had. He well and truly went out of his way and stayed in touch with me on what he had and what was coming in. Thank you Mike, we would recommend to all looking for a vehicle to deal with HBC Vehicle Wholesale.


                                                                        Paula Phillipson - Fielding

Buying a new car can be a nightmare but Mike at HBC Vehicle Wholesale is a complete pro. Buying online is a dream, no car yards, sharks or bright white shoes. I totally recommend these guys.

                                                                             Amy Brown - Auckland

The quickest and probably the best decision ever for me was to phone Mike about the RAV4 and by 2.15pm (distance to travel) it was mine. It is so hard to find quality, good pricing and someone so trustworthy as Mike. Another Gem in our lives to go back to and to recommend to others.

                                                                              Jane Hart - Taranaki

My husband and I had been searching for a family car for a while, visiting many car yards and websites to no avail. We were stoked to be recommended Mike at HBC Vehicle Wholesale Ltd. We provided Mike with a description of what we were looking for and he came up with the perfect car for us. Mike was very efficient in communicating with us and replied to our inquiries almost instantly. We felt safe dealing with Mike, so much so that we bought our car without even viewing it in person. Mike made the whole experience very positive and easy and we were stoked with our car when we picked it up. We appreciated that Mike made contact with us after our purchase, making sure everything was to our satisfaction, and it was. Great service!

                                                                 Lisa + Dylan Jones - Whangarei

We have bought 2 cars from Mike and we have been very impressed with the quality of the vehicles. It was really easy to deal with Mike and his customer service is excellent. We look forward to dealing with Mike again when we are in the market for another car.

Two things are known to cause stress, buying a house and buying a car…My wife was looking to purchase a new car and a friend put us onto HBC Vehicle Wholesale. Within 3 days we had purchased a new Toyota Corolla. My wife is extremely happy with the car and price. When we need to buy another new car we would without hesitation look to dealing with Mike. This was a stress free purchase.

                                                                - Warren + Margaret Parker - Auckland

I would highly recommend Mike at HBC Vehicle Wholesale Ltd. I had just returned to NZ from overseas and had let him know what I was looking for. He found the exact car I was after and made the whole process so easy. Really pleased with my car and the personal service was fantastic. Thanks very much, a very happy customer.

                                                                             - Mark Harris  -  Cambridge

We bought our car from Mike without any hesitation. He was friendly and made the whole process painless. He was very professional and didn't put any pressure on us to buy. We highly recommend HBC Vehicle Wholesale to everyone and will be going back to Mike for our next car.
