At Hippo we’re not unfamiliar to the motor industry. Hippo was set up by Thomas and Richard, part of the well-known Preston family of Lancashire, who’ve been trading in the area since 1906.
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.
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.
