Commendation for Vauxhall's support of motability scheme

Vauxhall’s strong support of the national motability scheme has been recognised at the fifth annual Supplier Awards of Motability Operations.

The company’s continued commitment to motability was highly commended while Vauxhall retailers were winners in three of the 13 award categories including the customer-nominated ‘Motability Sales Specialist’ award which went to Gavin Gray of Vauxhall retailer Bristol Street Motors.

In making the commendation, the judges said Vauxhall had worked tirelessly to demonstrate its continued commitment to Motability and that exceptional levels of customer care set the benchmark for customers. “Vauxhall’s new and exciting models available to Motability customers at the same time as the broader car market and a dedicated Vauxhall Motability team are highlights of Vauxhall’s long-term commitment,” the commendation stated.

And it added that consistent competitive pricing, including increasing the number of models available at nil advance payment, resulted in great value for money ensuring Vauxhall models remain some of the top choices for motability customers. 

Steve Catlin, Vauxhall fleet marketing and motability manager, received the company’s award: “Vauxhall is a strong supporter of motability. We offer a wide range of models to scheme customers and extensive support, including nominated motability specialists at our retailers. I’m delighted that this long-standing commitment has been recognised at the 2010 motability Operations Supplier Awards.”

Speaking at the awards, Mike Betts, chief executive of Motability Operations said: “In 2009 motability received the highest ever levels in customer satisfaction. The last year would not have been possible without the support and partnership of our dedicated suppliers and business partners.”
