About Hippo Leasing

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.

The Hippo timeline


Hi Tom,

Many thanks for your email, I will certainly recommend to use Hippo Motor Group Especially Mark Latham & Dean. They did a great job in finding us a car we are delighted it is all now sorted just waiting to pick the car up now tomorrow when it is ready.

I assume this is when we will receive a welcome pack as we haven't received anything yet just the signed paper work when the transaction was made for the admin fee etc.

Kind Regards,

Tracey Richardson

Hi Josh,

I just wanted to express our most sincere thanks for all your help recently in providing us with a new Car.

Jan has taken delivery of it now and she is over the moon.

A HUGE thank you Josh,

Jan & Peter Brooks

People are all too quick to complain these days so I thought I would redress the balance.

Can I just say both Paul and I are extremely happy with both vehicles and the service we have recieved from Hippo, and no doubt we will be back in a couple of years for new vehicles.

Good afternoon Lianna,

We took delivery of the car this morning which was nice as we were actually car-less having sold my Matiz (hurrah!!) and Nicks Focus Turbo went last Thu!

Love the Corsa. We have all been out for a ride in it having dropped your driver Mark off at Chester Station.

First thank you for your personal excellent service. You have been very helpful, kind and efficient throughout.

Hi Michael,

Thank you for all of your help, you have been amazing!

I will for sure leave you a good review and will recommend Hippo to any friends I know getting a car in the future!

Thanks again,

My agent, Michael, made what could have been a very stressful time the complete opposite, in a timely manner.

I got exactly what I was looking for and I would definitely rate this a 5 star service!!

I would like to thank you for your help in the quick and efficient service that you have provided for my recent purchase of the Vauxhall Zafira, you made the process a pleasant one.

I would also like you to pass on my thanks to the 2 Gentlemen that delivered the vehicle, they where both very pleasant and professional and for me goes a long way towards a company that strives on customer care ! I hope the gentlemen had a safe journey to Glasgow
