Automotive businesses hoping for glory on the glitziest night in the motor industry calendar now have less than a week to put themselves forward.

The deadline for nominations for the 2023 Car Dealer Used Car Awards slams shut on October 2, meaning dealers and workshops just have days left to throw their hat in the ring.

The event, hosted as ever by Wheeler Dealer Mike Brewer, takes place on November 27 at The Brewery in London.

With preparations for the big night now starting to get underway, the chance to sponsor an award is now just limited to Outstanding Achievement – get in touch with us to discuss more.

The latest slots were filled by Visitor Chat, who are sponsoring our Use of Video award, AutoGuard Warranties, which is putting its name to the prize for Manufacturer Used Car Scheme of the Year, and Howden which is sponsoring Outstanding Achievement.

We are also delighted to announce that our VIP reception and fun casino will once again be sponsored by eBay Motors Group.

Car Dealer founder James Baggott said: ‘With the Used Car Awards approaching fast, car dealers and suppliers to the industry won’t want to miss an opportunity to be at one of the highlights of the year.

‘These awards are treasured by the winners and earn them a great deal of respect from their customers, so it’s always fantastic to be there with them on the night and see them celebrate.

‘Anyone who thinks their dealership has worked hard this year to provide excellent customer service should make sure they nominate themselves.

‘‘Our mystery shoppers put them to the test and it always throws up some surprising results.’

Tables for the ceremony, headline-sponsored by Black Horse, are currently on sale as well, and with plenty already gone, those looking to secure their tickets can also do so by using the same email address.
