About Us | McCarthy Cars

About Us

McCarthy Cars was established in 1973 by Jim McCarthy. To date, the business remains firmly in family hands, and is operated by Jim’s eldest son, James, alongside brothers Jonathan and Robert. 

What sets us apart from other dealerships is our absolute commitment to customer service. Whether you choose to contact us by email, via our website, by phone or in person, we will always aim to provide you with the best possible customer experience.

We are a dog-friendly business too, and we are always delighted to say hello to our customers’ four-legged friends. We even rate and review many of the cars that we sell based on their dog-friendliness.

We are an RAC-accredited business. This means that each vehicle in our used car range meets with RAC’s strict 82-point preparation criteria. Every one of our high-quality pre-owned automobiles comes with a minimum three-month RAC warranty and a vehicle history check too.


We feature more than 200 used cars across our two Mitcham Road in Croydon premises, including an array of marques, such as Audi, BMW, Jeep, Land Rover, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo. Each of our vehicles is competitively priced and we also offer a range of flexible finance options to help spread the cost of ownership.

As well as supplying great cars, we maintain them too, from our fully-equipped Service Centre at Silver Wing Industrial Estate. We also provide additional services, such as personalised plate fitting and the installation of in-car entertainment equipment.

Furthermore, McCarthy Cars is regularly the recipient of industry accolades, such as Business of the Year Award for 2017 (Best of Croydon Awards).

Please explore our website to learn more about what we have to offer. If you have any questions, please complete our online contact form, to which we will respond as swiftly as possible.

We are open seven days a week, so please feel free to phone or visit us – or use the Live Chat Facility on our website.
