Seat will be looking to retain their Car Dealer Power title

OUR SURVEY which puts you in the driving seat is back – and this year it’s bigger and better than ever!

Car Dealer Power are the only awards voted for by the people who matter most – you, the dealers – and this year we’re giving you the chance to celebrate even more of the very best companies that help you do business.

Now in its third year, Car Dealer Power – this year supported by G-3 Glasscoat – aims to find the best car manufacturer in the UK to represent by quizzing its dealers about how it performs on a variety of levels.

Last year, Seat just pipped the previous year’s winners, Nissan, to the top spot and will be looking to retain the title.

For 2012, we’re giving even more prominence to the suppliers that support dealers on a daily basis too.

We’ve split a number of the categories up to give the smaller firms more chance of recognition in these important awards.

We want you to rate the firms you use in all manner of areas of your business so we can celebrate the very best – and invite them to our special Car Dealer Power Awards night to be held in July. We’ve also managed to secure a number of prizes which will be handed out to random respondents to the survey (see right).

Car Dealer Power is 100 per cent confidential too. We don’t even ask for your name, only your mobile phone number and this is only used to inform winners of our prize draw that they’ve won. If you don’t want to include your number, that’s fine – it just excludes you from the prize draw.

We want to know the good and bad things about what it’s like to represent your car manufacturer, so please feel free to give the most honest opinions possible. Car makers take our survey very seriously and a number have implemented changes to their processes directly off the back of comments made in previous years’ surveys.

Filling in Car Dealer Power shouldn’t take longer than a few minutes.

JUST like last year, we will be holding an awards night for the winners of Car Dealer Power. Once voting is closed we’ll notify the lucky companies who need to book a table at our event.

Winners will receive access to Car Dealer Power awards artwork, will bag a stunning trophy to take away with them, and will receive fantastic publicity in Car Dealer Magazine and on our website. Just take a look at how many advertisers are using their winners’ logos in our magazines… and others!

One small tip though – we advise all suppliers and car manufacturers to ask their clients and dealers to fill in the survey. A friendly nudge towards the online survey can work wonders…
