Nick King, founder of Nick King Car Sales, has been in the car trade all his working life. After learning every aspect of the motor trade for 8 years with one of the area's largest car businesses, in 1996 he decided to go it alone, initially as a buyer, sourcing cars for the retail trade from main-dealers. Sixteen years ago, the opportunity arose for Nick to start up his own retail used cars sales business on the Bristol Road, Gloucester, and Nick King Car Sales was born. Starting with a few cars, Nick quickly built up his stock as his reputation for value, service and integrity grew. After five years of successful growth, Nick had started to outgrow his Gloucester site and in May 2006 opened a second branch of Nick King Car Sales in Cinderford in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire.
