Congratulations to Baytree on winning national motor dealer award

Derbyshire-based Baytree Cars have received national recognition at the prestigious Motor Trader Independent Dealer Awards, held last month at the Coventry Arena.

The annual event, hosted by celebrity Mark Durden-Smith, celebrates excellence in car retailing, acknowledges the strongest performers and top achievers in the UK independent car sector.

Baytree beat off intense competition from across the UK in winning the ‘Fastest Growing Dealer of the Year Award’.

The award is recognition for not only their excellent sales and financial performance, but also the huge amount of positive customer feedback received during the last 12 months.

Founder and current director of Baytree Cars Chris McDermott, who started the company in 2006, said: “Everyone talks about personal service, but we really do mean it – from collecting clients from the train station to making certain they are 100 percent happy with their purchase”.

“And, should a customer wants to do a deal for a car at midnight on a Sunday, we do that.”

Director Steve Pinchbeck said: “We not only place more emphasis on great customer service but at the same time have doubled the number of high-performance and prestige cars we stock in our recently extended luxury showrooms,” commented Steve.

Chris Astle, who recently joined Baytree as Operations Director, added: “We offer a fresh alternative to the main dealer experience.

“Baytree’s main point of difference remains that if someone enquires through our website, via email or calls and asks for a specific car – no matter how rare it might be – we are respected enough to not only handle the inquiry positively but also small enough to offer a very personal service”.
