Doncaster car retailer announced best in North East England

A local car retailer has been awarded the prestigious North East England Retailer of the Year award by Volvo Car UK.

The team at Riverside Volvo Doncaster received the award for showing tenacity and maintaining positivity throughout a difficult year, which has led to some truly industry-leading results.

In a year like no other, the Doncaster team worked tirelessly to ensure a safe and simple experience for all customers. This focus on customer service and satisfaction saw them deliver an outstanding performance – hitting 106 per cent of their new car sales target and a market share of 3.4 per cent.

The award comes at the beginning of a year of investment for Riverside Volvo in Doncaster, with a new pre-delivery inspection facility being built, and a significant investment in a showroom refurbishment which is due to break ground later in the year.

Kristian Elvefors, Managing Director of Volvo Car UK, said: “Congratulations to Mark Denton and the team at Riverside Volvo Doncaster who are worthy winners of North East England Retailer of the Year.

“Despite the challenges 2020 threw at them, the team at Doncaster showed resilience and the ability to adapt and meet customers’ changing needs and requirements.”

Mark Denton, Managing Director at Riverside Volvo Doncaster, said: “We are delighted to accept Volvo’s North East Retailer of the Year award for 2020.

“This is a fantastic achievement for us because it recognises how hard our team has worked over what has been an extremely difficult year. The entire team always goes above and beyond what is expected of them – we have hit all of Volvo Car UK’s targets and given our customers the best service possible.

“I am extremely proud of everyone at Riverside Volvo Doncaster, and would like to thank them for all their efforts – this award would not have been possible without them.”

Riverside Volvo Doncaster is located on Wheatley Hall Road, and is currently open for essential services and MoT tests, as well as virtual and phone appointments to discuss its range of hybrid, petrol, diesel and Volvo Selekt Approved Used Cars.
