Darren Crook retired from Greater Manchester Police as a Detective Sergeant in January 2017 after nearly 31 years service, 27 of those as a Detective working at Bootle Street CID and The Serious Crime Division at Nexus House, Ashton.

Darren found and bought his own car 20 years ago via the internet, which at that time was in its infancy. This opened up a new way for him to get the best deal on a car by sourcing his vehicle nationwide as opposed to just his local area. From then onwards family, friends and colleagues asked if he could do the same for them, some who did not have access to the internet, some who couldn't navigate their way around the internet or simply didn't have the time or inclination to look for their new car.

Darren's new found hobby was born!

Twenty years on and he is still being asked to find cars for people and having realised that there is a real need for his service he has subsequently formed his own business venture - THE CAR FINDING SERVICE.
Darren offers a free no obligation consultation to discuss a Customer's requirements and see how much money he could save someone.

Predominantly finding new and used cars under 3 years old, Darren is absolutely passionate about what he does and his upmost priority is to find exactly the right car for a Customer and he leaves no stone unturned until he has found that car and his Customer is completely satisfied.

He gets personal satisfaction from finding a car for a Customer, giving that person the opportunity to buy the right car at the right price which might not have been possible if the Customer had chosen to use the more traditional method of car buying. Over the years Darren has saved thousands of pounds for people by using his skill and expertise to identify the best deal for the budget available.

He only receives a finding fee when the Customer is satisfied that he has found the right car.
Darren's business relies and thrives on personal recommendations and he knows that honesty, integrity and providing a personal bespoke service tailored to what the Customer wants, are the reasons why Customers put their trust in him.
