We work hard down at cartime HQ, and continually strive for growth and success as a used-car supermarket. It’s always nice when this hard work is recognised, which is why we are delighted to have made Insider Magazine’s ‘SME300’.

The SME300 is a list of the best-performing small businesses in the North West, compiled every year by acclaimed B2B publication, Insider Magazine. To qualify, Insider must identify a company as a small business with a turnover of £5-20m, based on a combination of turnover and pre-tax profit.

We are delighted that cartime has made an appearance on the list; achieving a place in the top 300 is no mean feat when you consider that there are well over 200,000 small to medium sized businesses in the North West. As well as being featured in Insider Magazine, the SME300 database is also built into a marketing tool for businesses. From this, companies can purchase a full list of contact details for key decision makers within each individual business. This can be extremely useful for marketing and business development purposes within a specific industry.

Director of cartime, Matt Kay, said: "It's a real thrill when we receive news like this. Recognition in a publication such as Insider Magazine is great for business, and it's nice for the team too."

It’s rather dazzling to be described as a ‘diamond of the North West economy’ but it’s certainly a motivational incentive – and something that spurs on the hard work and high performance down at this particular used-car supermarket. Thanks for the recognition Insider Magazine, same time again next year?
