In 2014 John Mulholland Motors proudly won the Skoda Retailer of the Year award and in doing so we became the first ŠKODA retailer outside mainland UK to scoop the top prize. Any thoughts of this achievement being a one-off were cast aside this week as we landed the top honor once again.
Speaking at the award ceremony in Budapest John remarked "I'm absolutely delighted to have been awarded the UK's ŠKODA Retailer of the Year for the second time."
"We are the only Dealership to have ever brought the award to this side of the pond so to do it twice is an even bigger achievement."
"I cannot express how proud I am of our amazing staff, who were all part of this with their hard work and devotion to total customer care and most importantly to our wonderful customers!"

John Mulholland Motors had to fend off stiff competition from 126 other UK ŠKODA retailers to clinch the title, so what's the secret to our success? "Family" John says. "We are a close family run business and we treat our staff and our customers like family too. And being family means we look after each other."
"Customers are our life blood" John continues. "Without customers we don't have a business so we work hard to provide value, choice and service in a friendly and professional manner. By doing this, long lasting relationships are formed and why we enjoy welcoming the same customers back again and again"
So what's next for John Mulholland Skoda? "Complacency is not in our vocabulary" John explains. "We may be top of the pile today but tomorrow we raise the bar and start again. The Skoda brand continues to go from strength to strength and this year we welcome the all new Kodiaq to the range, ŠKODA's first 7 seat 4x4 which has already won What Car of the Year 2017 for best large SUV while giving luxury brands such as Land Rover and Audi a run for their money"
"In addition we have updates to the Octavia, Citigo and Rapid with Sportline and vRS derivatives coming too. We'll celebrate the win tonight and look forward to another great year, here's to 2017."
