Car Dealer today reveals the firms that have made it through our mystery shopping round to make the Used Car Awards 2023 shortlist.

After a tough round of judging by the Car Dealer team and its mystery shopping experts, the names from our Nominations List have been whittled down to five in each category.

A winner and two highly commended placed firms will be announced at the glittering awards ceremony, sponsored by Black Horse, at The Brewery in London on November 27.

Tickets for the event – hosted by TV’s Wheeler Dealers star Mike Brewer – are available to purchase now.

Brewer said: ‘This year’s mystery shopping has seen a marked change in attitudes from previous years – a number of car dealers didn’t even return our calls and emails.

‘But the top firms were brilliant and have really shone out from the crowd.

‘Getting into the final five from the huge number of entries we receive every year is an incredible achievement in itself. It’s worthy of a celebration and the awards night will be just that.

‘I wish all those named on our shortlist the best of luck and look forward to toasting your achievements with you on the night.’

Our judging panel will use the next few weeks leading up to event to conduct their final checks on the businesses in the frame. Where the category decisions are tight, this can include further mystery shopping.

Those firms shortlisted are advised to book their places at the event quickly as it has sold out for the last two years.

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.
