- Three year deal to provide seal of quality on used stock
Honda's major South East dealer group, Alan Day Honda, has appointed the UK's leading independent vehicle information provider, HPI, as its supplier of provenance and mileage data. The new three year agreement confirms HPI as a key part of Alan Day Honda's growth and development plans.
With business operations from Enfield, Hendon, Winchester, Southampton and Portsmouth, Alan Day Honda offers a complete range of Honda vehicles with a focus on customer care.
Steve Fossey, financial director for Alan Day Honda, says: "HPI was the clear choice for us because it could deliver a cost effective service designed with the customer in mind. As a very well established brand, HPI proved it can provide solutions not only based on market requirements, but our own individual business needs. We will benefit from HPI's market leading vehicle history check and National Mileage Register (NMR) Check and Investigation service.
"Giving us even greater reassurance is HPI's field based team, providing daily support on its range of innovative products and services. Our decision to move to a new supplier was key to the future growth of our business, which we believe is in the safe hands of HPI," concludes Fossey.
Daniel Burgess, director of automotive at HPI, concludes: "Alan Day Honda is a highly respected name in the automotive retail industry; a name that is synonymous with quality and integrity. We are delighted to have won this contract, which confirms HPI is their number one choice. In addition, the agreement is signed for 24 months which is testament to our service, as Alan Day Honda signed a 12 month agreement with their previous supplier.
"Our focus on customer service, combined with HPI's comprehensive suite of products, means Alan Day Honda customers can have complete confidence in the quality of its used car stock. We will continue to launch new products that meet the changing needs of the market, helping professional retailers like Alan Day Honda, maintain their reputation as a dealer of choice."
