A used BMW and Mercerdes dealership has continued a stellar year with another record sales month – it’s third of 2015.
Big Motoring World, based in Addington, near West Malling, recorded a 104% increase in sales compared to the same month last year, selling 904 cars.
In August, it revealed its intention to increase its number of staff to 550 by 2019 and open several new sites over the next four years.
The firm, which employs 250 people, shifted 827 cars in June, its highest ever figure, beating sales of 747 in May, itself a record month.
The company also sells Volkswagen and Audi models.
Chief executive Peter Waddell said: “Like any dealership, sales fluctuate every month, but last month we saw an exceptional increase year on year.
“We think that this could be down to a number of reasons – with the economy improving people feel more secure in spending money on cars.
“We now have a wider choice of pre-owned cars for our customers to buy.”
The company was founded in 1989 and operates in three car sales sites including one in West Malling and two in Canterbury.
It has a service and collection centre in Snodland.
The company is the largest independent seller of pre-owned BMW’s in the UK, with more than 1,250 in stock.
