very new company (as seen below). The address they give is inside a serviced office called "Centre House" in Belfast (go to street view in google maps, it is opposite House of Fraser on the junction of Victoria Street) so the pictures of their warehouse on their site are definitely in another location... if it exists at all. They have another site http://aigautos.co.uk which was unfinished..but give an address south of the border...could well be some connection to this site: http://www.jjreillycars.com.

Name & Registered Office:
AIG AUTOS LIMITED
79 CHICHESTER STREET
BELFAST
NORTHERN IRELAND
BT1 4JE
Company No. NI606713
Status: Active
Date of registration: 21/03/2011
Country of Origin: United Kingdom
Company Type: Private Limited Company
Nature of Business (SIC):
None Supplied
Accounting Reference Date: 31/03
Last Accounts Made Up To: (NO ACCOUNTS FILED)
Next Accounts Due: 21/12/2012
Last Return Made Up To:
Next Return Due: 18/04/2012

If you want my opinion, if they are making offers which seem to good to be true they probably are. Scouring Europe's auctions to bring cars back to Belfast really doesn't sound a great angle to build a business on...but who am I to judge, only passing on the facts you make up your mind yourself but they look iffy to me

no surprise...nothing about them pointed to being a legitimate company.

It seems to me there´s a massive scam going on, it´s very common to receive emails of different companies who are telling you that the cars are in England/Ireland/Scotland and that they can transport them free of charge to you. After arrival you get a few days to decide on the purchase, but how is that possible? Can you say no ? I´m sure they´ll ask for a deposit or bond or creditcard nr. BEFORE you get to see any car!
