Cartime wins Car Supermarket of the Year Award for second year running

Date published: 26 February 2021

Cartime, which has showrooms in both Bury and Rochdale, has today (Friday 26 February) been announced as Car Supermarket of the Year in the Motor Trader Independent Dealer Awards.

It’s the second consecutive year it has been awarded the accolade, and “comes as a much needed boost to the team in what has been a challenging year,” said owner Matt Kay.  

Cartime operates from three sites in the North West; its flagship operation and a 4x4 centre in Bury plus its Rochdale showroom.

It was awarded the prestigious title of Car Supermarket of the Year by industry title

The award acknowledges and rewards best practices in the sourcing and selling of nearly-new and used cars by UK-wide businesses, specifically observing excellent customer service, customer engagement and setting standards. 

Mr Kay said: “This is fantastic news for us, made even more special because we won the same award last year and it was a great boost to the business – increasing our confidence in what we were doing was exceeding the competition and most importantly as recognition for the hard work from the team.

“With any retail business you have to keep upping your game – responding to the needs of your customers and this is what we’ve done, even during lockdown when our showrooms were forced to close.

“The award enables us to reinforce to customers that we’ve reached a certain standard and our strong reputation is pushing us from strength to strength. I’m optimistic about the future as we look forward to welcoming customers back into the showrooms soon.”
