Used Car Awards: Deadline for nominations is approaching!

Time 1:49 pm, October 10, 2014

Screen shot 2014-04-14 at 15.50.15TIME is running out if you’d like to be a part of this year’s Car Dealer Magazine Used Car Awards!

If you want to get involved in this year’s event – and why wouldn’t you? It’s THE automotive awards do of the year! – you have until October 31 to nominate potential winners.

So if used cars form an important part of your business, or you want industry recognition for your hard work,  the awards sponsored by Black Horse are PERFECT.

Winning a Used Car Award is a big thing. The awards celebrate and recognise all the different areas of this vital backbone of the motor industry. From the smaller independents to the larger groups, every dealer who has an involvement with the used car business can take part.

If you’re interested in getting involved however, there’s no time to lose. As we say, nominations close on Friday, October 31st.


On the night we will be handing out gongs in a variety of categories – from Used Car Sales Manager of the Year to Used Car of the Year, so there will definitely be something you can enter. And if you reach the final shortlist, you will be invited to our sparkling awards night, hosted by TV’s Mike Brewer and held at The Brewery in London on December 1. You’ll be able to enjoy a three-course meal, free table wine and beers, a disco and live band.

If you missed out on last year’s event, don’t delay in entering 2014’s Used Car Awards. Tickets and sponsorship packages are selling out quickly.


At The Brewery. This amazing venue is large enough to hold all our winners but small enough for the event not to feel too vast – a complaint many people have about other industry awards ceremonies. This year the theme for the venue is The Circus – absolutely perfect for our beloved car industry!


Once again this will be an excuse for a Christmas party you can put on expenses. It’ll be held on December 1.

Guests are treated to welcome cocktails and wine. Then we take our seats for the first half of the awards. Mr Brewer does his stuff then it’s time for dinner. After that we announce the final winners, then it’s time for a live band with the night topped off with a disco. There’s plenty of time to enjoy the night with industry colleagues and get busy with some networking in a convivial environment.
