This year’s Used Car Dealer Awards in pictures
We had a great time celebrating with the movers and shakers from the motor trade industry at the Car Dealer Used Car Awards on November 30th 2015.
As always “the man off the telly” Mike Brewer and the Car Dealer Mag team did a brilliant job hosting an event that gets bigger and better every year.
Congratulations to the winner of our sponsored award, Dealer’s Dealer of the Year – Jim Reid Vehicle Sales!
Plan’s Nick Cole, Operations Director, presented the award with Mike Brewer to a proud Jim Reid.
By all accounts a thoroughly deserved and popular winner. Like Plan, Jim Reid Vehicle Sales is a family owned business operating within the motor trade industry that prides itself on offering all round outstanding service and after sales care.
And a special mention to surprise guest of honour, Sir Sterling Moss who joined in the proceedings by presenting an award. We’re pleased to report the 86 year F1 legend looked remarkably spritely climbing the steps up to the stage!
Well done to all involved and remember the campaign for next year begins today!
