It’s a Win for cartime! Dealership Triumph at Made in Bury Business Award

Standards were high this year, with the car retailer facing some tough competition. The other two finalists were established local transport providers, Bury Minibus Hire and Grahams Driver Training, a local driving school.
cartime’s owner and Bury-native Matt Kay who represented cartime at the glitzy, black-tie ceremony at the Longfield Suite, Prestwich said, “Since I founded cartime in 2012, my goal has always been to offer people a new way to buy a used car. It’s an honour to be recognised with a Made in Bury Business Award, as these awards have contributed a lot to the local business community in the last three years. I’m really proud of the whole team at cartime and it’s been a great year so far – so well done to them all for another great achievement. It’s also great to be able to say we offer an ‘award-winning’ new way to buy a used car!”
cartime were also up for the Best in Class Retailer award, but Slattery Cakes pipped them to the post in that particular category.
