What's going on at Acklam Car Centre?

Acklam Car Centre are more than just a car dealership, we work with Olmypic athletes, English title boxing contenders and record breaking wonderkids. We are always at the forefront of changing technology and this will be evident in our brand new photobooth, video content and dealership management software.

Simon Vallily, the 32-year old mandatory challenger from Middlesborough, is a former Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist and his only defeat came against World Boxing Super Series semi-finalist Mairis Briedis last year. “I'm so excited about this opportunity,” said Vallily. “I've boxed on some big TV shows before but this is by far the biggest. It will be a great honour to become English Champion, and it's also a great stepping stone for me to go on and win bigger titles.

[UPDATE] Arfan Iqbal pulled the fight just hours before it was meant to happen due to an alleged injury. Simon went on to fight Blaise Mendouo for the second time with victory by TKO.


Sprinter Richard Kilty has been added to the England team for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. Kilty, who was forced to end his indoor season early due to an Achilles problem, has been added to the team in the 200m and 4x100m relay. Kilty formed part of England’s silver medal-winning 4x100m team at the last edition of the Games in Glasgow.

As an independent dealership it is paramount that we keep on top of the latest trends and technology. This month we have invested in a brand new purpose built photo booth to capture a range of stunning photos, CITnow videos and customer handovers. We have also for the first time introduced a brand new dealership management system to ensure we keep in line with all of the latest regulations both financial and data protection. This will also enhance the customer experience within the dealership as we introduce a fleet of iPads!
