Award-winning Newcastle dealership adds another award

Award-winning Newcastle dealership adds another award

A Newcastle car dealership has added another accolade to its growing list of awards received in recognition of customer service excellence.

Bristol Street Motors Vauxhall Newcastle has received a regional award for its work with the Motability Car Scheme. The accolade is part of a programme of awards launched in 2014 by Motability Operations to recognise and reward outstanding customer service provided by local Motability dealerships.

It’s not the first time that the Scotswood Road dealership has had its performance recognised by the nationwide Scheme. In the past, it has won other several regional awards from Motability, was previously named as Dealership of the Year and earlier this year the dealership’s Motability Specialist, Gavin Gray, received the highly coveted Outstanding Contribution Award.

Bristol Street Motors, part of Vertu Motors PLC, also won the Website of the Year award for its Motability website at Motability’s annual Dealer Awards. Vertu Motors picked up Dealer Group of the Year for the second year running in recognition of its excellence in the Motability sector.

The Dealer Awards programme is designed to reward best practice and ensure all Motability customers receive exemplary customer service across the Motability Scheme’s national dealer network. The Awards are judged on how a dealer delivers the Scheme to customers, which is assessed by customer feedback and reviews of their performance.

Mark Flynn, general manager atBristol Street Motors Vauxhall Newcastle, said: “All of us at Bristol Street Motors Vauxhall Newcastle are incredibly proud to win this Motability Dealer Award and are pleased to be recognised for our dedication to working in partnership with Motability Operations, which is renowned for its high standards.

“We look forward to continuing our award-winning approach to business and customer service and to welcoming many more Motability customers through our doors.”

Peter Wilson, general manager dealer relations at Motability Operations, said:

“The focus of these awards is to thank our dealer partners for providing a consistently positive customer service experience, after all, they are often the first point of contact for our customers. It’s important for us to recognise our dealer partners who go above and beyond when representing the Motability Scheme and highlight those who are setting a great example of how to do it well, like Bristol Street Motors Vauxhall Newcastle. Many congratulations to them on their award.”
