Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has recognised the achievements of its top performing Van Centres at its annual performance awards event, held in Manchester at the weekend for representatives from the brand’s 72 dedicated Van Centres and 24 Authorised Repairers.
Following a highly successful year, in which Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles completed its range renewal by launching the all-new multi-award-winning Crafter, the awards recognise the importance of the dedicated Van Centre network in not only selling vehicles to customers, but also living out the brand’s Working With You promise, and delivering consistently high levels of service and in-life support.
For 2017, six category awards were given to recognise performance across a number of key areas, from new and used sales, through customer satisfaction and loyalty to Authorised Repairers. There are also three top Van Centre accolades which recognise overall results.
The big winner this year was the JCT600 group, which claimed four awards, including the top Overall Award for the best performing Van Centre for JCT600 Volkswagen Van Centre in Hull. Marshall Van Centre Oxford was the top performer in Aftersales, while JCT600 Van Service Wakefield was the top performing Authorised Repairer.
