Car Dealer Live 97: Jim Reid and Umesh Samani

Time 1 year ago

Motor trade favourites Jim Reid and Umesh Samani provided a lively discussion when they appeared  on Car Dealer Live.

Broadcast live on the Car Dealer YouTube channel on September 14, the pair spoke with host James Batchelor about a range of current issues.

Reid, the owner of Inverurie-based Jim Reid Vehicle Sales, and Samani, of Specialist Cars in Stoke, are well known and respected in the trade.

Both are also members of the IMDA (Independent Motor Dealers’ Association), of which Samani is the chairman, so the pair really are at the coal face of the industry.

On the show, Batchelor chatted with the pair about trading during the summer, used car sales, predictions for the rest of the year and the IMDA.
