About us

Welcome to Swains Family Car Centre, offering huge savings on used cars in Exeter, Devon.

Derek & Elizabeth Swain started the business in 1977. Their son Andrew Swain nows handles the daily running of the business with Derek Swain still keeping his hand in by finding and buying the right cars.

Most of our cars are One Owner with Full Service History and are all HPI Checked before purchase. All vehicles sold are thoroughly checked in our fully equipped on site workshops and are Serviced, Cambelted and MOT'ed if required free of charge. All cars come with our own 3 Months Parts & Labour Warranty.

We are Members of the Buy With Confidence Trading Standards Scheme and have been for many years. We are a family run business and have a relaxed atmosphere when it comes to your next quality used car purchase. So please come along and see for yourself,we are Well Worth A Visit!

'Awaiting Preparation' means vehicle is waiting for either mechanical inspection/ paint work/ valet/ delivery. Please ring for details.


We are approx 1 hour from the city of Bristol down the M5 motorway. Approx 40 mins from Taunton. We are also approx 40 mins from Torquay and Plymouth. We are very easy to find located on the old A30 to Cornwall. All our cars are fully checked in our workshops,all wheels removed,brakes checked and a service/ MOT carried out if necessary. Once we have sold you a car we would like it if you would use us again and again for all your future MOT/Servicing requirements and a free courtesy car is supplied when available.
