Haven’t voted yet in the only awards for the used car industry? Well, you’d better get cracking because hundreds of dealers right across the UK are getting involved – and you shouldn’t miss out.
It’s easy to see why. For 2013, the Car Dealer Used Car Awards features a brace of new categories, meaning there’s something for every dealer in the UK.
The awards are once again ably supported by Mr Wheeler Dealer himself, Mike Brewer, and for this year sponsored by finance specialist Black Horse.
On December 2 we will be handing out awards in 21 different categories. You’ll notice the categories are varied and open to any dealership, no matter how large or small, and we are accepting entries now.
If you’re wondering how you can go about nominating yourself and – hopefully – a few other dealers who you think deserve a mention, well, we’ve made it easier than ever this year – simply click here to bring up our nominations form. Just fill in the categories you want to – and we’ll do the rest. It couldn’t be any easier.
If you’re struggling to think of nominations for a specific category, don’t worry – you can leave them blank.
Do get your thinking caps on before you fill it out though – we’re counting on YOU to nominate the dealers that really deserve recognition.
Shortlists for each category will be drawn up by our panel of judges – which will be chaired by Brewer – and the winner and two highly commended winners will be invited to our gala awards night.
If last year is anything to go by, winners and highly commended winners will be going home with a special award indeed.
The celebrations will be held at a swanky venue – namely The Brewery in London. Attendees will enjoy all-you-can-drink beers and wine, a delicious three-course meal, live entertainment and a disco.
So how did 2012’s event go? Over to Brewer himself: ‘Last year’s event was absolutely cracking! It was the first time we had put the event on and it couldn’t have gone any better.
‘It was brilliant to celebrate the true heroes of the used car business, because all too often this area of the industry is wrongly overlooked. ‘This industry is one where a lot of back-slapping goes on – and it was great, thanks to our awards last year, to finally see the used car industry and the people who work in it get the credit they deserve.’
