Major industry accolade for John Holland

We are thrilled to announce that we have been named as highly commended at a major national awards ceremony.

Our Meadowhall Road-based dealership, which has been named Sheffield’s best retailer for the past two years at the Motor Trading Standards awards, was highly commended in the Used Car Independent Retailer of the Year category at the national 2017 Motor Trader Industry Awards, held at Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s West End.

We fought off stiff competition to make the category’s initial shortlist of five independent dealers, before being named as highly commended by a full panel of judges at a glittering gala dinner, which saw an audience of more than 1,200. Our award was presented by the legendary Sterling Moss.

The awards feature more than 20 categories, with the Used Car Retailer of the Year Award in its 15th year and open to all independent and franchised dealerships retailing cars to the public.

Our success comes two years after we were highly commended in the Used Car of the Year Award at the 2015 Motor Trader Industry Awards.

Managing director Mark Holland said: “We’re thrilled to be highly commended for the second time in three years. Recognition such as this emphasises that we do things the right way at John Holland and we will continue to stay true to our values of providing the best possible service for our customers.”

Curtis Hutchinson, editor of Motor Trader, said: “Congratulations to John Holland on being highly commended for this award. There was some tough competition in this category so this achievement is further confirmation of their position in the industry.”
