Nottingham-based RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV) is celebrating after winning Commerical Motor’s Franchised Dealer of the Year Award.

Following a year of excellent success and growth, the East Midlands Renault trucks dealer – which has a head office on Lenton Lane – beat numerous other commercial vehicle dealers from across the UK, to take home the much-sought-after award and was also highly commended in the Sales Team of the Year category.

20 staff from RHCV attended the annual Commercial Vehicle Awards, which took place at The Vox Centre in Birmingham. Celebrating the best in new and used commercial vehicle sales and aftersales, the event saw 400 people and more than 30 dealers pack out the centre last Thursday (16th November 2018).

The success tops off an incredible year for RHCV. The team, earlier this year, won a hat-trick of awards, including Dealer of the Year, at the annual Renault Trucks Dealer Awards for a second year running. RHCV also expanded its business along the M1 corridor, acquiring a fourth site in Northampton in order to meet customer demands and requirements.

Nigel Baxter, Managing Director at RHCV said: “It has been a truly spectacular year for RHCV and to be recognised in the Commercial Motor Awards as an industry leader on a national level, has been the perfect way to top off a brilliant 2018.

“The growth and success of RHCV is a result of the hard work and dedication of our fantastic staff. I would like to thank each one of them for their continued support.

Christopher Walton, Editor-in-Chief at Commercial Motor, said: “In winning Commercial Motor’s Franchised Dealer of the Year, RH Commercial Vehicles demonstrated an exceptional relationship with Renault; produced impressive customer testimonials and showed evidence of a loyal customer base.
“Being judged against all dealerships across the country, they proved that the marque can be worthy of pole position. Our panel of independent judges was also impressed that the business continues to invest in people, creating a good work atmosphere. They are clearly good at what they do!”

RHCV has been selling, leasing servicing and repairing heavy (HGV) and light commercial (LCV) vehicles across the East Midlands for four decades. The company employs 90 staff across its three sites in the East Midlands – in Nottingham, Northampton, Cossington and Alfreton (Derby).
