At Big Motoring World we are proud of our reputation. Known for unrivalled customer care and quality used cars we strive to be the destination of choice when it comes to your next car.
Specialising in Audi, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Volkswagen used cars we one of the largest German used car specialists in the UK and have subsequently started to stock vehicles from all manufacturers across the Big Motoring World Group.
We are always striving to be the best that we can be. Whether that's in our customer service or our website, we invest a significant amount of time and money into developing and growing our business.
This ethos has remained throughout our history and throughout our period of expansion we have been fortunate to have been recognised for our work at a vast number of industry awards over the years and below are some of our achievements to date, with a number coming over the last few years alone.
2017 saw us update our website and the year would prove highly successful for all at Big Motoring World. In just a matter of months, our website had amassed two overall award victories and received one finalist status.
Wirehive100 2017, the scene of our first awards victory of 2017.
Finalists in the ‘Rebrand of the Year’ category, we were delighted to go on and win the award overall. Recognised for the advanced level and feature-packed nature of our website the judges deemed us worthy of overall success in this category. However, that wasn’t to be the only recognition that night as we had the honour of receiving finalist status in the ‘Consumer Site of the Year’ category.
Further success at the Used Car Awards 2017.
The Used Car Awards were to prove to be our second successful awards night on the bounce. Just a matter of weeks after the Wirehive100 awards, we found ourselves, finalists, once again at the highly prestigious Used Car Awards. Pitted up against some of the very best in the industry, we were delighted to be recognised for all of our hard work with our website as we were crowned winners in the Used Car Website of the Year category.
The start of 2018 saw us succeed at the inaugural Auto Industry Excellence Awards.
Set up to recognise outstanding achievement in the motor trade, the Auto Industry Excellence Awards bring together dealers from across the country where only the best of the best are in the running to win an award. On the night we were delighted to win the award for Dealer Website Excellence for the Big Motoring World group website. We invested significantly in our website offering to help our customers make the most informed decision possible and it’s a pleasure to see that the judges agreed.
Just a few short months later saw us win ‘Website of the year’ at the 2018 Motortrader Awards.
It was the midst of the World Cup summer of 2018 that the cream of the motor trade descended on London for the annual MotorTrader awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel. As England's semi-final against Croatia was streamed live to guests, it was disappointing to see England crash out so close to a World Cup final. However, where England faltered, Big Motoring World triumphed as we won yet another award for our website. Alongside this, we also had the pleasure of receiving Highly commended status in the ‘Used Car Retailer of the Year’ category.
Further success followed at the Used Car Awards as we won the award for ‘Car Supermarket of the Year’.
After receiving much acclaim for our website it was a truly humbling experience to win the award for ‘Car Supermarket of the Year’ at the prestigious Used Car Awards. This award is probably our most satisfying to date. Everyone at Big Motoring World works tirelessly to ensure that our offering and service is the best that it can possibly be. Award victories like this can only come about as the result of unrelenting hard work from our team and to be recognised in this manner for our efforts is particularly satisfying.
Fast forward to the start of 2019 and our winning streak continued at the Auto Industry Excellence Awards with a double awards victory and recognition for our CEO.
Our latest awards successes are close to our hearts as they celebrate not only us as a business but the achievements of our CEO, Peter Waddell. Going into the event we were honoured to be shortlisted in the ‘Website Excellence’ and ‘Dealer Principal Excellence’ categories and we were delighted to go one better on the night, receiving Highly Commended status for our website. This adds to our victory in this category last year and to date is our fifth overall accolade for our website.
After receiving this status we were incredibly proud to then see our CEO, Peter Waddell, named as the overall award victor for 'Dealer Principal Excellence' as he took to the stage to collect his very much deserved trophy. A true visionary, everything Big Motoring World is today is thanks to Peter’s hard work and unwavering commitment to excellence and it’s apt that he should be the recipient of this award.
