Our Story

At Hippo we are not unfamiliar to the motor industry. Hippo was set up by Thomas and Richard, part of the well-known Lancashire based Preston Family, and we’ve been trading in the area since 1906.  We understand that you have an extensive choice as to where to purchase your next vehicle but we are confident that if you choose Hippo, we can find the best deal on the market for you.

COMPANY TIMELINE

Initially set up by our founder George Preston, we were successful coal merchants, but by 1960 we changed direction and entered into the motor trade.

A Bedford franchise was set up and due to our enviable reputation for customer service we were fortunate to secure franchises and partnerships from some of the world’s top manufacturers such as Mitsubishi, Land Rover, BMW and MINI.

Over the years we have developed and grown, gaining valuable experience within our trade. All this has helped us achieve some of the best deals available, so that we can be as competitive as possible, keeping the most important person happy, you our customer.

I found the whole experience very friendly and easy to arrange the leasing. Delivery was excellent with updates on ETA on a regular basis. Overall a very professional service.

Great company, for someone with poor credit I thought my chances of getting a new car were non existent. Hippo helped me work through the solutions and within 2 weeks I had a new car. Great service.

Rachel Wilkinson, Peugeot 107 Hatchback 1.0 Access 3dr

Very quick and easy to deal with, the entire transaction was completed in a matter of days. Our new car was delivered to our door, beautifully presented making for a great all round experience – would 100% recommend!
