Who can enter?

Greatness comes in all sizes. That’s why the Retailer Awards are open to car and commercial vehicle retailers of all sizes, whether a small independent business, or a huge franchise operation.

Why enter?

As one of the UK’s most recognised consumer brands, 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), is an incredibly effective way to stand apart from your competitors, and build trust and confidence with you customers.

Robin Luscombe, Managing Director of Luscombe Motors: “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.

Ted Cribley, Sales Manager of The Premium Car Collection:It’s made a massive difference to our marketing. A consumer might not know anything about you, but they know that Auto Trader recognises you as the best and that means a lot. The Award doesn’t make people buy a car, but it certainly makes them pick up the phone and give us a call. They take a lot of confidence from the Award, and we do genuinely have people tell us that they only came to us because of it.”

Nominations close on the 13th of May so don't miss your opportunity to showcase your success to your consumers. Nominate now!
