Used Car Awards 2022 Shortlist: The used car dealers in the running for our top awards

  • Shortlist revealed for Used Car Awards 2022
  • Names in the frame will find out if they’ve won at big night at The Brewery on Nov 28
  • Firms advised to book their tickets for Black Horse-sponsored ceremony now

Time 10:24 am, November 8, 2022

The mystery shopping is now complete and the shortlist for the Used Car Awards 2022, sponsored by Black Horse, has been announced.

After two weeks of intense mystery shopping carried out by our team in person, over the phone and online, the spreadsheets have been filled in and the numbers crunched.

The names below are the five which will go through in each category to find out on the awards night if they’ve been successful in this year’s big event.

Winners will be announced at the glittering awards ceremony at The Brewery in London on November 28. 


Ticket sales are open now.

The names have been whittled down after two rounds of judging.

The first used a combination of online reviews across a variety of platforms and citations to whittle down the Nominations List.

All firms listed in that were then mystery shopped to cut them down further for our shortlist.

Awards host and Wheeler Dealers star Mike Brewer said: ‘I loved the mystery shopping phase this year.

‘Every time it’s incredibly revealing to see how dealers perform and some were truly outstanding.


‘It was a shame, though, to find many that promised great things simply not respond to our enquiries. I know times are good for the used car industry but that shouldn’t lead to complacency!

‘That being said, there were some brilliant car dealers out there and I’m really excited and looking forward to naming them at our big annual bash at The Brewery.’

The Used Car Awards, sponsored by Black Horse, will be held on November 28 at The Brewery in London.

eBay Motors Group will be sponsoring the pre-dinner drinks and providing an after dinner fun casino while GardX are hosting the official after party, which is invite only.

There are only a few places remaining and last year’s event sold out two weeks before it took place, so it is advisable to book early.

For table bookings please contact [email protected] or call 020 8125 3880.

The event is black tie, includes a three course dinner and unlimited beer and wine.
