JCT600 launches six new 'JCT600 Approved' used car retail centres

JCT600 chief executive John Tordoff

JCT600 has launched six ‘JCT600 Approved’ used car dealerships as part of a move to set new standards for its pre-owned vehicles.

The Bradford-based AM100 car retail group will apply its new ‘JCT600 Approved’ used cars standards across its 54-site operation but has also officially launched the dealerships in Bradford, Leeds, Boston, Doncaster, Grimsby and Rawdon under the same brand.

Having sold more than a million used cars since its launch in 1946, the business had made 90 days of warranty and road assistance, a six-month valid MOT and a 14-day money back guarantee part of its new customer promise.

To celebrate the launch of JCT600 Approved, the group has also launched a special introductory offer – every JCT600 Approved vehicle will include 12 months’ warranty, 12 months’ roadside and 12 months’ servicing.

Group chief executive John Tordoff, who will be joining AM for a Regional Heroes webinar on May 4, said: “Over the years, JCT600 has become one of the most trusted names in the motor retail industry, often with generations of the same family buying car after car from us.

“For most people, buying a car is one of the biggest purchases they will make, and they want the peace of mind of knowing that they’re dealing with a reputable, experienced retailer they can trust, whose vehicles have gone through a rigorous quality check.”

The new JCT600 Approved centres in Bradford, Leeds, Boston, Doncaster, Grimsby and Rawdon promises to bring together premium used cars from the likes of Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, BMW, Land Rover, Jaguar and Mini in one retail outlet.

All JCT600 Approved vehicles can also be bought online in just a few minutes, the group said.

Andy Bateman, JCT600’s customer experience director, said: “With 54 dealerships in Yorkshire, the North East, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire, we have thousands of used cars coming into the business in part-exchange every year and a team of experienced buyers, enabling us to offer a huge choice vehicles.

“The ‘JCT600 Approved’ badge tells customers that the vehicle has met our high benchmark and been thoroughly inspected as well as providing ‘extras’ such as our warranty and six months’ MOT as standard.

“With such a long heritage in the motor industry, we can offer customers a huge range of used vehicles, from a name they can trust.”
