Our Story

Every customer who drives away with a new or used vehicle from the Hippo Motor Group knows that they are dealing with a company where knowledge, training and expertise is central to our service which means you can have true peace of mind.

At Hippo we are not unfamiliar to the motor industry.

At Hippo, we are well versed in the motor industry. Hippo Motor Group 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. With decades of experience picked up by Preston’s down through the years, we bring you a car finance company that has gained a firm reputation for fairness, value and customer service and, as a result, is one of the fastest growing car finance companies in the UK.

A Little History

Our Story

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.
