Isuzu UK proudly hosted its highly anticipated yearly Dealer Awards on 1st February 2024. The event, held in two distinguished parts, showcased Isuzu’s commitment to excellence and its significant role in the sports sponsorship arena.

Following the successful events in the previous years, the whole network of UK dealers was once again invited to the glamorous event set in the 80s theme to celebrate another year of greatness and the most successful year of D-Max sales since its introduction in 2012.
The Shrewsbury-based dealer truly demonstrated its capacity for success by also taking home Contract Hire Dealer of the Year, Accessories Dealer of the Year and Regional Dealer of the Year. RVT CV’s outstanding commitment to excellence, customer service and sales performance have warranted their name becoming synonymous with the pinnacle of Isuzu UK dealer success.

With RVT CV weighing in with the most sales across the whole of the UK dealer network in 2023, it is no surprise that its success has not gone unnoticed. The dealership’s commitment to echoing Isuzu UK’s high standards, in all aspects of its operations, has set it apart as the deserving recipient of the prestigious Isuzu Dealer of the Year Award.

I cannot thank our team enough for the hard work and dedication that they have shown. At RVT Commercial Vehicles, we always strive to offer the best service and support to our loyal customer base. Having received Regional Dealer of the Year in 2021 and 2022, we have made incredible strides to have won the awards that we have today.”

We work very closely with our dealers to ensure that they can operate to the best of their potential. In the case of RVT Commercial Vehicles, however, they have well and truly exceeded all expectations and have gone above and beyond to achieve all-round excellence.”
