At Hippo we are not unfamiliar to the motor industry. Hippo was set up by Thomas and Richard, part of the Prestons Family, based in Earby, Lancashire who have been trading since 1906 set up by its founder George Preston. Initially we were a coal merchant but by 1960 we changed direction and entered into the motor trade. A Bedford franchisee was set up and due to our enviable reputation for customer service we were fortunate to secure franchises from some of the worlds top manufacturers such as Mitsubishi, Land Rover, BMW and MINI. All this has helped us achieve some of the best deals available so that we can be as competitive as possible along with 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 us we can find the best deal on the market for YOU!
