On Tuesday 30 June, Motor Codes announced Crescent Motoring of Staffordshire as the winner of the UK Garage of the Year Award during the Auto Express Car of the Year Awards.
Held in London, Crescent Motoring of Staffordshire received the award after being recognised as one of the most established vehicle Service, Repair and MOT centres in the Burton-on-Trent and surrounding district.
After three months of customer nominations, the winning garages were chosen by their own customers with over 13,000 reviews submitted to Motor Codes’ website. Judges selected each regional winner by going through public comments and criticisms eventually deciding on the garage which stood out from the crowd.
The Auto Express Car of the Year Awards competition provides an opportunity to highlight the best-rated garages in each of the regions and was a chance for motorists to recognise the excellent level of workmanship in the country. Other awards during the day included a runners up prize to Anderson Clark of Inverness and a separate award going to Test Centre of Deptford, commended for their commitment to providing a high level of customer service.
Motor Codes is part of the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) Consumer Codes Approval Scheme (CCAS) and is the only Code Sponsor to cover three areas: new cars, service and repair and vehicle warranty products. They had the pleasure of announcing the winning garage at the awards ceremony last week. The service offers an online garage finder which holds thousands of online customer reviews, allowing consumers to find their closest, trusted government-approved garages wherever they are making it a useful tool for those looking to have confidence in their choice.
Mark Terry, Managing Director of Motor Codes, said, “Motor Codes garages are providing first class service to motorist’s right across the UK, and we’re delighted to have this opportunity to celebrate the best in the business. All of our finalists are great ambassadors for the industry and they should be rightly proud of their achievement.”
