Plympton Car Centre scooped the hotly contested Used Car Sales Team of the Year accolade at this year’s Car Dealer Used Car Awards.

The Plymouth-based firm was praised by our mystery shoppers for its superb service throughout the judging process.

They were also impressed by the staff’s professionalism and helpful manner, which saw them bag top honours.

Reacting to the win, director Stewart McMinn said: ‘We’re ecstatic. I think the way people are buying online has increased massively, with more people shopping out of the area, and our online presence has really helped with this.

‘We have a massive online presence with the ability to click and collect or reserve online. People’s buying habits have changed over the past 18 months and definitely towards used vehicles.’

Sales manager Tim Carpenter added: ‘We’re really excited to have won this. I’ve known Stewart for many years and he’s built the business from the ground up.

‘It means the world to us and we can’t wait to go back to the dealership and tell the whole team.’
