Member Testimonials


A1 Motor Stores is a group that values teamwork and togetherness, so the thoughts and opinions of the membership are always extremely valuable.

Here are some testimonials from just a few A1 members:

“We moved over to A1 in January 2017 and have really benefited from the additional services they provide compared to our previous buying group. The rebates are better and there is a good range of suppliers for the hard parts side, but also on the leisure and accessories side which we are expanding. We have been helped immensely by the the A1 marketing team, who have made some amazing posters and online campaigns for us. They also made us a huge weatherproof banner to cover up our messy counter so now it looks amazing.

The quarterly factor meetings are informative, and they give me a chance to see what other members are doing and what more I can do. Being based in Hinckley we benefit from collecting, but £100 carriage paid order is easily made with the range of stock they have, and it has saved me buying from other cash and carrys. I also get rebate this way!

Thank you for all your support, A1.”

“We felt A1 Motor Stores, in terms of our service and overall package could offer a great deal more than some of the other groups” “Joining A1 Motor Stores has also improved things like faster rebates and POS material. The POS Material and promotional stationary is of very high specification and it certainly gives our shop a more professional look. Something a small independent would struggle to achieve.”
