Preston, who still runs the company, said: ‘I started the company in 2007 and we are still a family owned and run business.

‘We currently employ 260 people, which is up from 220 in 2020, and are looking at employing a further 20 people to work in our online car sales and finance department. 

‘This can be office-based or home-based.

‘We are also looking to fill an additional 20 roles in various departments taking the total headcount to over 300. 

‘This also includes a head of commercial relations and procurement role.’
