Time is running out. AM is looking for the best dealers, carmakers, repairers, bodyshops and factors to enter the AM Awards 2006 – and you could be a winner! Entries need to be received by Friday, November 4.
We are looking for measurable improvements over the past 12 months. Tell us what you have done, how you went about making changes and how you are monitoring improvements. Carter & Carter will again carry out assessments through a combination of mystery shopping and interviews.
No matter how big or how small your company is, there is a category to suit.
Four new categories are introduced this year. New car of the year will be won by the model we believe offers best customer value, performance and opportunity for retailer profits in its sector, while used car of the year will assess residuals, carmaker programmes and remarketing strategies.
Internet retailer will focus on the company making best use of online marketing and sales, while innovation in property will be won by the dealer making the best use of their site, be it gin palace, multi-franchised or small rural outlet.
