Roadside (Garages) Limited in Coleraine, N. Ireland win Best Used Car Dealer Award

One of Coleraine’s biggest and most successful used car retailers, Roadside (Garages) Limited, has been honoured at the prestigious Car Dealer Used Car Awards 2017. The dealership was presented its award for Used Car Dealership of the Year by TV’s Wheeler Dealer, Mike Brewer.

The coveted award - which saw Roadside (Garages) Limited triumph over an exceptionally strong field - recognises it for excellence across the board. All nominees received a number of difficult mystery shopper visits before a panel of expert judges scored them against a demanding set of standards. Roadside Kia – which has been established for over 30 years – passed with flying colours to take the accolade.

Speaking of the award, Mike Brewer commented: “Organisation is key when running a site populated by 100 or more cars and keeping your customers happy with so much in stock is a hard task. Roadside (Garages) Limited can give themselves a much deserved pat on the back.”

David Boyd of Roadside (Garages) Limited, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won this award. As a business, we place great value on our excellent reputation and work incredibly hard to ensure we offer the very highest standards of customer care across all areas. This award shows we are on the right track. My thanks go to all the team at Roadside (Garages) Limited who made the winning of this award a reality for us.

It is great to be recognised in such a manner and our thanks also go to Mr Tom Reid of the RAC and Mr Aarom McGrath from MotoNovo for their nominations. We have had to change our business model a lot over the last 18 months and have turned the site into Northern Ireland’s largest Kia Brand Centre. We are now retailing many more used cars and stocking what our customers are asking for locally.”

Roadside (Garages) Limited, an Approved Used Kia dealer, has built an excellent reputation as a reliable and trustworthy retailer with its emphasis firmly on customer service. All Approved Used Kia cars up to 18 months old have the industry-leading warranty topped back up to seven years. Roadside’s used cars all come with an RAC warranty and breakdown cover and have passed the RAC 82-point Approved Vehicle Preparation Standard – giving customers complete confidence and peace of mind.
