This year the Motor Codes team has recruited Auto Express Driver Power and motoring TV presenter Vicki Butler-Henderson to aid its search.
The competition is based on votes from car owners, with Motor Codes wanting to highlight the best franchised and independent workshops. Voting opened on Friday 8th February with the first stage of the competition finding champions in ten different regions.
Motor Codes Managing Director Chris Mason said: “Garages today are no different from any other retailer or service provider. The forward-thinking businesses make themselves as transparent as possible. They engage with their customers, value feedback and recognise that online reputation is hugely valuable to people searching for a reputable business. Garage of the Year uses online feedback to create a record of the good guys and, through voting in this competition, motorists are effectively helping fellow car owners know where to turn for a good garage experience.”
Customers voting online are entered into a prize drawn to win a pair of tickets to a BTCC race at Brands Hatch, plus spending money and £250 of Love2Shop vouchers.
