LAST year we launched our hunt for the best car manufacturer to represent in the UK. Called Car Dealer Power, the survey put you, the dealers, in charge and asked you to rate the maker you represent on a host of different criteria.
Selling cars is a partnership between you and the car manufacturers, but all too often those makers think YOU are lucky to be representing THEM! Car Dealer Power is your chance to tell them what you really think.
Our results ruffled a few feathers last year – some car manufacturers didn’t like to be told how it really is, and for us to report it – but that wasn’t going to stop us running the survey again! Anything but. Others were delighted to be topping the poll though – especially Nissan which was voted your winner.
This year we’ve added more questions and are asking you to name the Car Dealer’s Car of the Year – your choice of model, from any manufacturer, which you believe deserves the gong (think of it as a bit like the Football Writer’s Football Writer of the Year).
Part two of our survey is about celebrating those motor trade suppliers that provide you with the very best service. You’ll be naming the companies to do business with in 12 key categories as well as your picks for special achievement and innovation of the year.
Your favourite companies will then be invited to a gala dinner at the top of Portsmouth’s Spinnaker Tower where your choices will be handed their gongs. This is your way of saying thank you to the suppliers that help you do business.
We also want to thank you for taking the time to fill out the survey – which can be done online here. To do this we’ve lined up some incredible prizes to give away over the next few months.
This month we’re giving away three Garmin sat navs to random respondents to the survey. But, as Car Dealer Power is anonymous, if you want to be in with your chance of winning one make sure you give us your mobile number.
Thanks for supporting Car Dealer Power – the only awards that empower you!
