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.

I would very much like to compliment your account manager Karen Greenhalgh on her professionalism and her very helpful manner.

Karen, was very polite at all times, and was extremely helpful. She kept me fully updated and the service she provided was excellent and very efficient.

I would certainly recommend Karen to any of my family and friends should they wish to use hippo motoring.

Kind regards,

Dear Shirley

You beat me to it with your call today, I was going to drop you a mail and say thank you very much for helping us sort out our new vehicle so quickly. We are delighted with it and having driven it around for a couple of days all seems to be well. We have been so impressed with the service from everyone at Hippo Group from our initial contact through your website to all of your help and finally to the gentleman who delivered our car.

We will definitely recommend your company to family and friends.

Many thanks once again.

Kind regards,

Melanie Palmer
