Time 5 months ago

The Car Dealer team have released its fifth edition of the Car Dealer Podcast – available to stream or download from Spotify, Apple Podcasts or Google Podcasts.

Host Rebecca Chaplin and editor-in-chief of Car Dealer James Baggott discuss the stories they think are the biggest of the week, finding out what they agree and disagree on, and this time having an independent judge decide who chose the best stories.

This week has been a busy one, with controversy from Scotland’s tightening of restrictions and changes to click-and-collect rules while it comes under increasing scrutiny in other parts of the UK.

From private car sales, to Trading Standards mystery shopping, used cars and the new cars announced this week there was plenty to discuss in episode 5 of the podcast.

James also adds his best pieces of advice from this week’s Car Dealer Live, which you can listen to in this show.
