Independent garages get thumbs up from consumers

I challenge anyone who doubts the fantastic service on offer in the independent aftermarket to take a look at our website right now and walk away with the same view.

The messages of support that customers of motor factors, garages and retailers have left while voting for their 2010 aftermarket heroes are incredibly refreshing and really underline the passion and commitment of the people that make up this industry.

Of course you can read them all on our awards pages, but here are just a few of the comments we’ve received from motorists about independent garages who far too often get a raw deal.

I hope they brighten up your day.

  • “TJ Hall and Son provide excellent service. I needed a replacement bulb the other morning and when I pulled up at 8:30am the mechanic came out and fitted one immediately so I was able to get to work on time.”
  • “There are not many people to whom I would entrust my beloved Cobra! – I have no hesitation with ABP Motorsport.”
  • “Dakar Cars are brilliant. Nothing is too much trouble, great service and the pricing is competitive.”

Back to the CAT Awards, voting is now closed, although my lips are sealed about the identities of our winners – sorry but rules are rules – so you’ll have to wait for the big announcements on the 22nd of Jan.

It’s shaping up to be a fantastic event and the CAT team is looking forward to kicking off 2010 in style by welcoming all our guests at the fabulously luxurious Lensbury Hotel and Spa and sharing a few well-deserved celebratory drinks with you.

In the meantime, here’s wishing you all a happy and prosperous New Year.
