    “I have no hesitation in recommending Marina Motors
    Phil and his team always offer us a professional, prompt and reliable service
    Marina have also saved us money over the years by helping to find the most economical solution to any problem
    And not just opting for the easy option in replacing expensive parts.
    Marina is always our first port of call for servicing and MOTS of our fleet vehicles”

    Have used ABP for years, they fully deserve a fourth title, even a special recognition award / lifetime achievement. Their professional approach, undoubted highly experienced and trained staff, attention to detail, after sales service and friendliness are unbeatable…making a trully positive garage experience, which is a rarity ! Thanks

  16. Sean Cresswell says:

    Voting for ABP.
    Worth the 2 hour journey to let these top guys work on my car.
    Friendly advice and the confidence that the work has been done properly.

  17. david smith says:

    my vote is for Marina Motors in leeds, thank you!

  18. I.Rutter says:

    I had never been to D.R.B on Orford Green,Warrington, Cheshire, before but found them so helpful and they went out of their way to advise me and save me money, I was amazed at the stock that they carried and will certainly make it my first port of call when I need anything for my car.

  19. Steve Poulter says:

    The service, in all possible ways, including the car is of such excellence, I would not think of going elsewere. Julian, Shelley and their team keep my car on the road, and most importantly I know it is going to be SAFE. And that is paramount!
    They, in my opinion deserve recognition.

  20. PETER STEEL says:

    As a regular and a happy customer would like to nominate Marina Motors to win this award. Phil and his crew definitely deserved it. Thank you!

  24. joe mccann says:

  25. Chris Thompson says:

    ABP save me and my family money every year by giving honest and sensible motoring advice. Trust is something very few motorists have in their garage which makes ABP my garage of choice.

  26. Matt says:

    Good luck Wilco

  31. Steve Patterson says:

    My vote for drb spares, very informative and really helpful.

  32. Geoff Beasley says:

    My whole family use ABP in shavington after moving to the area 5 years ago. A neighbour told us about them and we haven’t looked back since. All the staff are polite, smart and nothing is ever too much trouble. I’ve been using garages and main dealers for over 25 years and nothing has ever come close to the ABP experience. They manage to pull off a whole new ‘retail’ experience in a garage environment which is refreshingly different. More garages should operate like this. ABP get my total support.

  33. Rhiannon Jones says:

    You wont get better service or more innovative partnership than with GMF. #4wins
