Auto Trader Retailer Awards
Redgate Lodge were proud to be finalists in the recent Autotrader Awards 2018 held at the prestigious One Marylebone in the heart of London and were absolutely delighted to place 2nd in the UK for the Retailer Excellence Award.
Redgate lodge made it to the Finalist stage from over 13,500 retailers actively advertising on Auto Trader. The 13,500 were shortlisted to 1,500, with 6 awards up for grabs including the highly coveted Retailer Excellence Award. Redgate Lodge narrowly lost out on the day after the award went to a well-established Main Dealer Group, but were very excited to learn that they had places second overall.
Speaking at the awards, MD Scott Sibley told us: Although it would have been an honour to win the Retailer Excellence award, we are both delighted and encouraged with the news that we were second place overall and just a few points below the winners. We were up against some very tough competition from thousands of excellent independent dealers and even main dealer groups with some of the strongest sales teams in the UK. Even to be Finalists and be invited to this fantastic venue is an achievement of its own. Autotrader is a fantastic platform, and we have been given great feedback on the small tweaks we need to make to be a worthy winner of Autotrader Retailer Excellence Award.
Redgate Lodge is a young company founded back in 2010 with two employees. The company has since grown into a major Used Car Retailer, based on an ex-main dealer site. Sales growth has been nothing short of phenomenal! From the early days of 10 cars sold per month, to where it sits today with more than 100 with multiple on-site facilities.
