What has been your most satisfying moment in business?
To date, turning over £1.3M in our second year of business is amongst the most satisfying, but the pinnacle moment was winning the Rising Star Award at the National Used Car Awards by Car Dealer Magazine. Just to be in a room with the leading companies at the forefront of the automotive industry was overwhelming, the award was presented by TV's Wheeler Dealer Mike Brewer, he hosted the event and said: "This is a new award which identifies those used car dealers who are working their way towards a bright future in the industry, and Jacob certainly is. From founding his own company just two years ago, his business has gone from strength to strength and his success is to be celebrated.” Our video can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxrRsVMDnQU&t=2s.
What are your dreams and aspirations for the business?
Our primary intention is to continue focussing on growth both in used car and commercial stock levels, naturally, we would like to hire a sales executive soon and continue to build a team so the business can become self sustaining. In the near future I’d like to develop a mechanical repair centre to complement the business.
