• Eaglesham Garage of Glasgow, Scotland, scoops Isuzu Dealer of the Year award
• Dealership counts on 25+ years of Isuzu experience for 17% year-on-year sales rise
• Commitment to great customer service also taken into account by judging panel
A stellar contribution to Isuzu sales and customer service has earned Eaglesham Garage of Glasgow the accolade of Isuzu Dealer of the Year for 2015.
As an Isuzu specialist since 1989, Eaglesham Garage was able to count on its extensive experience and expertise as it ranked among the best dealers in the United Kingdom on sales alone. The Scottish team sold 112 of the multi-award winning D-Max pick-ups throughout the year – a 17% increase on its 2014 total.
In addition to vehicle, parts and accessories sales, the Dealer of the Year award jury – made up of Isuzu UK’s senior management team – takes into account sales aftercare and general customer service when appraising the network’s 111 sales and service dealer sites.
William Brown, General Manager of Isuzu UK, said: “It was not just Eaglesham Garage’s strong sales results – ranked among the best of all Isuzu dealers – that helped it to win this prestigious Isuzu Dealer of the Year award. Its excellent improvement over its performance in 2014 was taken into consideration, as well as a general all-round excellence in its approach to catering for customers’ needs.”
With more than 25 years’ experience, the Eaglesham Garage team had also completed the full Isuzu UK training schedule throughout 2014 and 2015, equipping its staff to deliver outstanding service to all of their customers. Eaglesham only dropped one mark out of 20 over the four categories.
In the same awards ceremony, which took place last month, Simon Green, Dealer Principal of family-run K T Green Isuzu specialists from Leeds, West Yorkshire, was named Pick Up Professional of the Year. David Taylor Garages of South Wales were Sales Dealer of the Year and Roger Young Isuzu of Saltash was named Accessories Dealer of the Year.
Corrie Motors of Inverness were New Dealer of the Year and Threeways Garage of North Wales were Most Improved.
