Motor Trader’s UK Independent Dealer – General Sales 2020
AM (Automotive Management) Awards 2020
Just Nice Clean Cars takes a very different approach to used car sales and as a result their story is one of growth, equality and great customer ethos.
‘I am thrilled and so proud of the whole team’ said Carl Jay, owner of Just Nice Clean Cars based on Millers Road in Warwick. The business, now Warwick’s largest independent family-run used car dealership has been shortlisted in the prestigious 2020 AM (Automotive Management) Awards and not in just one category, but three!
• Best Used Car Dealer (Independent non-franchised)
• Most Improved Dealership
• Best New Dealership
The AM Awards bring with them the respect of the automotive industry and publicly acknowledges the importance of people as well as being an independent mark of quality.
A relatively new business to Warwick, JNCC started out on Millers Road in 2017 taking on an empty building which formerly housed Bizzi Bodies Automotive Bodyshop. A family run business, husband and wife team, Carl & Charlotte Jay, have gone from employing just 2 staff to a total of 8 today. Originally purely a used car dealership, Just Nice Clean Cars now also runs the service and MOT testing centre attached to it too.
Carl remembers initially seeing the site as too big for their needs but ‘having potential’.
‘We were a small business with big dreams,’ Carl said, adding ‘I just wanted to make the whole used car buying experience something more special than it was, more enjoyable and without constant pressure from salespeople’.
What makes Just Nice Clean Cars even more special is having a woman at the helm in a mainly male dominated environment. Charlotte’s influence has ensured the environment is welcoming and more conducive to women and families, stating ‘we know that the process of choosing and buying your next car can be a long one and we know first hand that children’s attention spans are not so long, so we added a few little touches that we hope make all the difference’, on hand they have toys to entertain children, smart television with movie streaming, free Wi-fi, free drinks and there’s even a ride on toy car!
The AM Awards 2020 are being held at the ICC, Birmingham on February 13th.
