  • Used Car Award Winners 2019

Last night the SW Car Supermarket team headed down to London for the annual and prestigious CarDealer Magazine Used Car Awards. Heading into the event shortlisted in three categories, we’re delighted to announce that last night we went one better and won Dealer Used Car Website of the Year!

A now popular fixture on the automotive events calendar, the Used Car Awards bring together the very best of the UK’s car dealers and celebrates outstanding achievements. Hosted by Wheeler Dealers presenter Mike Brewer, all shortlisted dealers are judged by a panel of industry experts and mystery shopped where appropriate.

2019 has been an incredible year for everyone at SW Car Supermarket as we opened our second dealership location, SW Car Superstore. Now being able to stock an even more diverse selection of vehicles than ever before, we are fast becoming the go-to dealership for used cars in Peterborough and our success at last nights Used Car Awards is very much the cherry on the top of what has been a fantastic year for all involved.

Like with any award, reaching the shortlist is always an achievement in itself and to do this over the three categories of Social Media User of the Year, Dealer Used Car Website of the Year and Used Car Supermarket of the Year is hugely rewarding.

Our first success of the night came within the Dealer Used Car Website of the Year category. Recently going live with our new website we’ve worked hard to ensure that our online offering gives something different to the norm.

We use our vibrant and fun brand colours to present a website that is not only visually engaging but easy to use too. For our customers, all vital stages of the research phase of buying a car are covered thanks to extensive vehicle documentation, 360 imagery and the ability to configure used car finance.

We’ve invested a lot of time into ensuring our online offering is right, so it was with great pleasure that we took to the stage on Monday night to collect the overall category award for our website.

Our website victory wasn’t to be the only highlight of the evening as we were also recognised in the hotly contested Used Car Supermarket of the Year category. At SW Car Supermarket we strive to give a customer service experience unlike any other so it was also fantastic to learn of our Highly Commended status.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who nominated us. We’re delighted to pick up these accolades and we’ll work hard to defend our titles going into 2020.
