Our Story

After trading in the North West since 1906 as coal merchants the Preston family chose to take a different direction and entered the motor trade. After successfully running a Bedford car franchise they were then offered, and accepted, franchises from global manufacturers such as Mitsubishi, Land Rover, BMW and Mini.

In 2007 the Hippo Group brand was born and Hippo Prestige was created. Since the start of Hippo Group we have grown quickly and we believe that is down to our reputation for quick and helpful advice each step of the way. What makes us different to most prestige car providers is that we are a family run business with the capacity to provide you with an agreement to get your dream car on the road. With access to the best deals on the market and a real person on the end of the phone whenever you need us, you can be sure that we will be able to help no matter how big or small your queries are.
