John Grose is celebrating more success in the national Motability dealer awards which recognise outstanding customer service.

John Grose, the Suffolk and Norfolk-based motor group, has won the regional dealer of the year category in the national, annual Motability Scheme Dealer Awards for the second year running.

The accolade recognises its continued support in providing outstanding service to customers of the Motability Car Scheme throughout 2016.

The Motability Scheme Dealer Awards programme rewards best practice and ensures customers receive exemplary customer service across the nationwide car dealer network. With prizes available across nine categories, the awards are judged on how a dealer delivers the Scheme to customers, and is assessed by customer feedback and reviews of their Motability Scheme performance.

Throughout last year a series of quarterly, regional prizes were awarded, and all quarterly winners were nominated for the national awards. In addition to regional success, John Grose has beaten off competition from throughout the UK to become the 2016 national winner once again after receiving the award for 2015 last year, a first for any Motability scheme dealer.

Peter Wilson, general manager, dealer relations at Motability Operations, said: 'We are really impressed with the achievements of all our winners including John Grose.

'It's great to see the high level of service delivered by our dealer network and we are pleased to present the latest Motability Scheme Dealer Awards. The annual awards allow us to thank dealers for providing consistently positive customer service, highlighting those who are doing it well and encouraging others to do the same.
