About the Auto Trader Retailer Awards

To truly succeed in today’s challenging market, the best retailers have to provide car buyers with a total retail experience – a blended journey between the online and the offline.

The Retailer Awards, and this year’s seven categories represent and celebrate that important development.

Why enter 

Although we don’t like to brag about it, thanks to our scale and our 40 year heritage, Auto Trader is one of the UK’s most recognised consumer brands. Each month our website and mobile platforms receive 55 million visits, making us the UK’s largest automotive marketplace and the UK’s 14th largest website.

More importantly, we're the most trusted automotive classified brand in the UK, with nearly 10 times more consumers claiming to trust Auto Trader over our nearest competitor.

So, what does that mean for you? Well, in today’s increasingly competitive and complex marketplace, having an Auto Trader Retailer Award trophy in your cabinet (as well as window stickers, digital logos for your ads and website, not to mention photos, videos, press releases and social media assets – we arm our winners well!), is a great way to stand out from your competitors, build confidence and that all important trust with car buyers!  

Don’t just take our word for it…

Robin Luscombe, Managing Director of Luscombe Motors, which won the Retailer of the Year Award, and Customer Choice Award in 2018, said:

We’re all about building trust and confidence with the consumer and winning an independent award, especially from a brand like Auto Trader which is so well known with our customers, really does make a huge difference. It’s also a source of pride for our colleagues; we know we were up against some fantastic other businesses, so to win on the night and to receive recognition for all of our hard work was an amazing experience for all of us.
