Today we can reveal the firms vying for success in the Used Car Awards 2021, sponsored by Black Horse.

The Nominations List below contains the names of those who will go through to the mystery shopping judging phase of the awards.

Our judging panel – which includes event host Wheeler Dealer star Mike Brewer – have whittled down the thousands of nominations received using a combination of online review scores and citations.

These businesses now go forward to the tough mystery shopping phase where our panel assesses each firm to draw up the awards shortlist, which will be revealed on October 25.

The shortlisted firms will find out who has won our coveted gongs at the awards night.

The Used Car Awards, sponsored by Black Horse, will be held on November 29 at The Brewery in London.

Brewer said: ‘We’ve been overwhelmed with entries this year and our judges had a tough job whittling them down to this nominations list.

‘These dealers are the ones that will now face our mystery shoppers – which can happen remotely, on the phone or on your website, or even in person.

‘Make sure you and your teams are on top of your game because you never know when our mystery shoppers may be inquiring.’

It is highly advisable to book your place at the event now as places are running out fast.

Car Dealer editor-in-chief James Baggott added: ‘This year demand for a seat at our Used Car Awards has been bigger than ever.

‘We know the industry is desperate to get back together and with used cars well and truly in the spotlight this year we know these awards will be more important than ever.’
