Three of the best for Honda dealerships
28 Sep 2010
Honda dealerships scoop trio of wins at annual 'Dealer Of The Year 2010' Awards.
At this year's prestigious 'Dealer of the Year Awards', three Honda dealerships scooped first place honours; Sharnford Tractors of Lutterworth won ATV Dealer of the Year, Major R Owen won Professional Turfcare Dealer of the Year and Garden Machines Northampton won Garden Machinery of the Year.
The Awards, organised by Service Dealer Magazine, recognise sales and service excellence among dealers in the land-based equipment market comprising farm machinery, garden machinery, professional turfcare and ATV/Quads.
The winning companies are nominated by manufacturers and suppliers across the industry and the final shortlist is then assessed by an independent panel.
Sharnford Tractors operates from extensive and comprehensive premises off-road in Frolesworth, Lutterworth, and the Awards panel commented that: "Sharnford Tractors provide an excellent customer experience from purchase through to professional after-sales support."
Now in its 33rd year of trading, Major R Owen has an impressive two-acre site in Penrhyndeudraeth, Gwynned and the Awards panel commented on its "excellent premises with totally committed management – the company provides superb back-up to customers across a largely rural area."
In selecting Garden Machines Northampton, the Awards panel said that it was "a professionally operated business which continues to evolve through creative marketing and commitment to the brands it supplies."
Garden Machines Northampton operates from its site in Northampton – which includes a newly extended retail showroom – and has been one of the UK's leading garden machinery specialists for over 30 years.

"These three dealerships work very hard to offer a 'best dealer in town' experience to their customers and continually develop and improve their business offering. The fact that they have won these prestigious awards is entirely a just reward for their focus, determination and drive."
