Main image for post: It’s a Win for cartime!

We’re delighted to announce last week’s win at the Made in Bury Business Awards 2015. It’s been a weekend of celebrations, as we were awarded Best in Class in the coveted Motoring and Transport category – and there are a few tired faces down at cartime HQ this morning!

A great night was had by all at the glitzy, black-tie ceremony, which was held last Thursday at the Longfield Suite in Prestwich. The Made in Bury Business Awards (MIBBAs) are now in their third year, and acknowledge the success of Bury’s diverse business community.

And this year, standards were high. We were facing some tough competition; the other two finalists in Motoring and Transport were established local transport providers, Bury Minibus Hire and local driving school, Grahams Driver Training. It was an anxious wait, but in the end the judges deemed cartime the winner, for our continuous contribution to the car retail industry.

Our Director Matt Kay represented cartime at the awards, and said “Since I founded cartime in 2012, my goal has always been to offer people a new way to buy a used car. It’s an honour to be recognised with a Made in Bury Business Award, as these awards have contributed a lot to the local business community in the last three years. I’m really proud of the whole team at cartime and it’s been a great year so far – so well done to them all for another great achievement. It’s also great to be able to say… We now offer an ‘award-winning’ new way to buy a used car!”

We were also up for the Best in Class Retailer award, but were pipped to the post in that particular category by family-run Slattery Cakes.

Events like the MIBBAs are a fantastic way to recognise and reward hard-working local enterprises, and celebrate their outstanding achievements. We’re thrilled with our award and would like to thank everyone at the MIBBAs for the opportunity and a great evening… Fingers crossed, we’ll see you again next year!
