Here at Hippo Leasing, we have a long history in the motor industry. We were set up, alongside our parent company Hippo Motor Group, by Thomas and Richard Preston, who belong to the well-known Preston family of Lancashire. The family have been trading in the area for more than a century; since 1906 in fact, and have built up a leading reputation with some of the world’s biggest manufacturers. From Ford to Ferrari, BMW to Bentley, we provide vehicles across the entire range; ensuring we always have the right car for you.
Trading since 1906
In 2013, we moved to our £2m purpose-built showroom in Blackburn, Lancashire. Since then, we’ve made it our home; a hub to help us deliver high-quality vehicles right across the UK.
And demonstrating the commitment we have to our customers is the continued expansion since.
In 2019, we opened the doors to our £3m state-of-the-art preparation centre. Housing manufacturer-approved technicians, an industry-leading bodyshop and the latest in automotive technology, we provide our customers with a truly unrivalled service.
Whether it’s our 124-point pre-delivery inspection, which is carried out by technicians with more than 60 years’ experience, or your annual service or MOT, you can rest assured you’re in safe hands with Hippo.
Following on from the opening of our multi-million-pound preparation centre, in early 2020, we also redeveloped our stunning showroom. At a cost of £1.3m, we doubled in size; providing more space for our dedicated online Hippo Leasing team as well as further scope for Hippo Prestige; the prestige arm of our business.
With our recent expansion, we now house more than 1,000 vehicles, which are available for you to view online or in person. Should you choose to visit our showroom in Blackburn, you’ll set your sights on the finest vehicle’s the world’s leading manufacturers have to offer, all for the price to suit you.
With further innovative plans scheduled for the years to come, here at Hippo Leasing, we’re always striving to discover and implement new ways to make your experience easier and more comfortable.
And although we’ll continue to improve our service, we pride ourselves on where we are today. The video below gives you a short insight of where we’ve come from, but by choosing Hippo Leasing, you can be a part of where we go next.
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 most important person happy; you, our customer.View recent testimonials
