Providing a full suite of vehicle checks with a focus on customer care

Top 20 largest Motor Retail Group in the UK, Ridgeway, has chosen HPI to deliver its market leading vehicle provenance solutions. Under the exclusive agreement, Ridgeway will benefit from the HPI Check, NMR Check and Investigations, as well as the award-winning HPI Spec Check. This partnership will enhance Ridgeway’s continued commitment to its customer in guaranteeing the quality of its used stock and part exchange vehicles.

Ridgeway was founded in 1997 and through a sustained strategic expansion programme, it has become one of the UK’s largest motor retail groups in the prestige marques market. Its success is driven by its dedication to offering customers the highest levels of quality, both in product and services. Its staff care just as passionately about the customers as they do about the cars, trucks and vans they sell, placing an emphasis on delivering individual attention and the very highest standards of care. The partnership with HPI supports Ridgeway’s commitment to its customers.

Jon Head, Group Operations Director for Ridgeway comments, “HPI is the first name in vehicle checks and the power of our combined brands will give our customers the highest level of confidence at every stage of the used car buying process. However, it’s the support that the HPI account management team will bring to our own sales and back office teams, that really makes this a winning partnership for us. The support function the Salisbury office provides is market leading.”

To secure the win, HPI delivered a tailored yet innovative solution, offering intelligent Management Information, backed by a highly experienced team to aid the day-to-day processes of the business. New products, such as HPI Spec Check, which provides an unparalleled level of factory fitted options data, saving time and improving accuracy when appraising used vehicles, will ensure Ridgeway buys and sells at the best price. Adds Jon Head: “HPI’s recently launched trade dedicated mobile app demonstrates that it is a forward-thinking company, delivering products that bring tangible benefits to us and our customers.”

Neil Hodson, Managing Director for HPI, concludes, “This is an exciting win for us. Ridgeway is a key industry player and we are thrilled to be to working in partnership to enhance their customer buying experience. Our suite of products are designed to meet the needs of modern motor retailers keen to maximise profits whilst ensure the quality of their stock.”
