Hampshire and Surrey-based dealership Town and Country Cars have made the Motor Trader Industry Awards shortlist for the very first time in its history.
The family-run business of over 40 years has been nominated for three honours in 2023: the Customer Care, Aftersales Excellence and Dealer Website of the Year awards.
The Motor Trader Industry Awards - in its 33rd year and hosted by Motor Trader Magazine - takes place at London’s iconic Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane.
The prestigious annual event, exclusive to the United Kingdom’s automotive trade, celebrates only the very best dealerships nationwide.
The recognition places the local Suzuki main dealer alongside the giants of industry, an impressive feat as a small medium enterprise.
Sales Manager, Ryan Tickner said: “we are thrilled to announce that your favourite family-run dealership has been nominated not once, not twice, but three times for the Motor Trader Industry Awards!
“This recognition is testament to the significant impact we've made in the automotive world as a small family business.”
Town and Country Cars has its customers and community at the heart of everything it does, proven by its close ties with both Alton Rugby Football Club and Ash United Football Club.
Two branches – in Aldershot and Holybourne – proudly serve the people of Hampshire and Surrey, having originally started out in the Ripley area of Guildford.
And it’s the very same people that have been vital to its entry, as Ryan reflected: “this journey wouldn't be possible without our incredible customers. Their trust, support, and loyalty have been the driving force behind our success.
“We want to extend our heartfelt gratitude for choosing us as your go-to dealership. Your satisfaction and experience matter to us more than anything.”
The announcement arrives having been voted as the UK’s number one automotive brand for trust, by the Institute of Customer Service’s barometer of satisfaction.
The nominations also follow being recognised as highly rated for customer service - by Autotrader - for the last three years running.
The winners will be announced on Wednesday, November 22nd.
