Used Car Awards 2022: The Nominations List is revealed

  • Nominations List revealed for Used Car Awards 2022
  • Names in the frame will now go forward to tough mystery shopping phase
  • Shortlist of five firms will be revealed on October 24
  • Firms advised to book their places at Used Car Awards ceremony now

Time 4:35 pm, October 10, 2022

The firms that have made the Nominations List for the Used Car Awards 2022, sponsored by Black Horse, are revealed today.

The nominations – published below – contain the names of those who will go through to the tough mystery shopping phase of the awards.

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

Ticket sales are open now.

Our judging panel – which includes event host Wheeler Dealer star Mike Brewer – whittled down the thousands of nominations received using a combination of online reviews across a variety of platforms and citations.


These businesses will now be mystery shopped by our panel before our judges draw up the awards Shortlist, which will be revealed on October 24.

Brewer said: ‘The entries this year have been outstanding and it’s been tough enough whittling them down to this longer Nominations List cut.

‘The mystery shopping phase always sorts the wheat from the chaff, though. 

‘The team, including myself, work incredibly hard on mystery shopping the car dealers named here and fill out a scary looking spreadsheet to help us decide the winner.

‘I can’t wait to be celebrating with the winners at the awards on November 28 – it’ll be worth all the hard work!’

Mystery shopping can happen remotely, on the phone or on a nominated firm’s website, or in person.

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

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


It is highly advisable to book your place at the event now as places are running out fast. Last year the event sold out two weeks before it took place.

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.

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.
