The firms that have made the Nominations List for the Used Car Awards 2023, sponsored by Black Horse, have been revealed.

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 27. 

Ticket sales are open now.

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

The businesses on this list will now be mystery shopped by our panel of experts before our judges draw up the awards Shortlist, which will be revealed on October 23.

Brewer said: ‘We’ve had a cracking set of nominations this year – as always it has been really tough narrowing them down.

‘It’s clear many businesses have really focussed on their performance when it comes to online reviews and we are really looking forward to starting the mystery shopping phase of the competition.’

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 27 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.

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.
