Why Independent Motor Dealers Should Join The IMDA

As a group of Independents our voice has become loud and clear, and we can assure you that our collective voice will be heard, listened to and more widely respected as the association continues to grow.

When external influences challenge our businesses, such as changes to the use of trade plates rule, fuel
taxation, FCA legislation and business rates – The IMDA will continue to work hard on the behalf of its members to lobby government alongside fellow industry associations to give independent dealers ‘a voice at the table’

The IMDA ensures that by working closely together with fellow Industry Associations & Influencers we will help influence industry changes and government legislation that affects the Motor Industry.
The IMDA will continue to obtain members views surrounding issues that affect business through survey’s and direct contact. The results will enable us to conclude the opinion of the majority and take the necessary action towards lobbying.

The IMDA is a ‘wakeup call’ for the large corporations who have taken no notice of the voice of the
Independent’s as individuals. Using ‘Strength in Numbers’ The IMDA will ensure that your voice at last WILL be heard.
