Motor Codes has relaunched it’s ‘Garage of the Year’ competition for 2012.

Pre-registration for the competition is now open, ahead of voting which opens on the 24th February.

The competition is free to enter and is open to all garages and workshops in the UK. That includes independents, franchises and fast-fitters, the aim of the competition is to find the UK’s favourite garage.

The competition has been running for a number of years, with Motor Codes setting out to find the best garages in the UK. This year the competition has been revamped to allow separate award streams for larger and smaller workshops. That means a garage with five technicians stands just as much chance of winning as a franchise with 50!

Motor Codes is hoping more workshops than ever before will be taking part this year. The garage code recently won OFT approval in the UK, a big business benefit to its 6,500 members.

Motor Codes Managing Director Chris Mason said: “Since the last competition, we have received fantastic feedback from many garages about the increased business the campaign has driven.  The support from Havoline and the broader award categories will help us make an even bigger impression on the public about the quality of service from Motor Codes garages.”

As well as the chance to generate some fantastic local PR,  a prize fund is also on offer that includes Snap-on vouchers as well as Land Rover and Porsche driving experiences.  As an incentive to customers for taking the time to vote, tickets for this year’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone are up for grabs.

Interested garages can register to take part in the competition on the Motor Codes website.

    We’re looking forward to this years competition after winning the North West Region for the last two years and finishing as runners up Nationally in both 2010 & 2011.

    Shame it’s lost its ‘Golden Garage’ moniker as customers seemed to gel with the concept but i’m sure it will be another sucessful campaign with the marketing clout Motorcodes seem to have.

    As always you’ve got to be in it to win it and ABP will definately be in it!
