Vertu Motors Award
Bristol Street Motors has won a national award for excellent service to Motability customers. The award, “Dealer of the Year”, was presented by the Motability Scheme. It recognises the high level of customer service and professionalism of Bristol Street Versa and it is the first time that the award has been given to a North-East car dealer.
Robert Forrester, chief executive of Vertu Motors, said: “It’s a clear sign from Motability that we are progressing in the right way, which gives us a great platform for continued success. Colleagues at all of our dealerships always make customer satisfaction their number one priority. I am extremely proud of the teams at all the dealerships involved and pleased to see their talent, commitment and hard work has been recognised.”
The Motability scheme is a Government-funded scheme where disabled people can use their Motability allowance to lease a new car, scooter, or wheelchair accessible vehicle. The scheme has helped thousands of disabled people across the UK get on the roads, and it has offered people a level of freedom which simply wouldn’t be possible without it. One of the best things about the Motability scheme is that you can lease practically anything, including SUVs, coupes, convertibles, and MPVs.
In other words, no matter what type of vehicle is needed, a Motability customer can lease it. So far, it has helped more than 3 million people get mobile with a brand new vehicle. The list of vehicles available is always growing and Motability customers can also lease nearly new and used vehicles, if a new vehicle is out of their price range or not needed.
On the award, Gavin Gray, who has been a Motability Specialist for 25 years, said: “It is a real honour to be recognised by Motability in such prestigious awards. It is the customers who make my job so enjoyable – some have been coming to me for more than 20 years – and to know you can make a huge difference to people by helping them become more independent is the best thing about the job.”
Gavin Gray was also highly commended in the Motability Executive of the Year Category.
Overall, Bristol Street Versa did very well at the awards but the biggest award by far is having so many happy customers.
