CarGurus launches 'Top Dealers' awards programme across the UK

Leading automotive shopping website, CarGurus, has announced its list of UK Top Rated Dealers for 2017. The CarGurus Top-Rated Dealer award is given to a select group of car dealerships across the country that have received the highest average ratings from shoppers who have submitted dealership reviews on the CarGurus platform. This is the first year CarGurus is presenting the awards in the UK, following the company's launch in 2015.

CarGurus uses shoppers' dealership ratings as well as comprehensive valuation analytics to help shoppers search their local marketplace and find great car deals from top-rated dealers. The recognised dealers have been chosen based on their star rating system, where it is 4.5* or above, as well as the quantity of positive reviews received over the last year. Jen Westwood, T W White & Sons and Abbie Bennett, Town Centre Automobiles are just a few of the dealerships who have been awarded.

Jen Westwood from T W White & Sons commented "We are really excited to be awarded a Top-Rated dealer status. We always try and go the extra mile for our customers, and it's nice to be recognised formally by CarGurus for this. We have a fantastic sales team who really thrive on giving great service, and this is reflective in our high aftersales retention and customer loyalty."

When asked for any advice on becoming a top dealer, Abbie Bennett from Town Centre Automobiles commented "Make customer service and satisfaction a priority, think about ways you can make a customer's car buying process special. This is the key to succeeding in such a competitive market."

"CarGurus is a fantastic tool to help boost your business", commented Nichola Moore from Sturgess Group. "The site is very easy to use, and elements such as the pricing tool are incredibly useful. The team are also great to work with and always ready to answer any questions."
