Time 4 weeks ago

The mystery shopping is complete and the final runners and riders for this year’s Used Car Awards can now be revealed.

The Shortlist below contains the names of those who will find out on the big night whether they have won one of our coveted Used Car Awards, sponsored by Black Horse.

The mystery shopping, which took place over the last two weeks, involved an extensive mix of on and offline testing of the nominated dealers.

Judges ran the rule over everyone nominated with online reviews from various websites, citations and the all important mystery shopping taken into account.

Places are now extremely limited for the Used Car Awards night being held at The Brewery in central London on Monday, November 29. 

To book your seats at the awards, please email [email protected] or call 020 8125 3880 today.

Tickets are on a first come, first served basis and are expected to sell out this week.

The awards evening will follow the venue’s Covid-19 policy which will require guests to be double vaccinated or able to produce a negative lateral flow test taken within 48 hours of the event.

The full Used Car Awards Covid-19 policy can be seen here with links to how you can obtain your passes or negative test.

Awards host and judge Mike Brewer said: ‘This really has been a year like no other for the used car industry and our shortlisted dealers have not let the side down.

‘Despite being busier than ever, the good guys have been consistently great and our mystery shoppers were seriously impressed with those who have made the cut this year.

‘I cannot wait to get back together with the great and the good of the motor trade and party together once again.’

The black tie event will see guests enjoy a cocktail on arrival sponsored by eBay Motors Group, a three course meal and all inclusive beers and wine.

There will be a fun casino, also sponsored by eBay Motors Group, after the awards.

An exclusive after party will also be held into the small hours, sponsored by GardX, at The Brewery. 

This event is strictly limited on numbers and if you’d like to attend please contact Melissa Thorpe at GardX for details.

Car Dealer editor-in-chief James Baggott added: ‘Congratulations to everyone that made our Shortlist.

‘The standard has been incredibly high and I am very much looking forward to revealing the winners and highly commended firms in this year’s big event.’
