MOTOR OMBUDSMAN LAUNCHES ‘GARAGE STAR’ AWARDS

The Motor Ombudsman has announced the launch of its inaugural Garage Star Awards. The new accolades have been introduced to commemorate and recognise the individuals, teams and businesses within its extensive nationwide accredited network that have gone above and beyond to help motorists during the last 12 months.

Any customer that has used an independent garage, repairer or franchise car dealership in the UK that is signed up to Motor Codes, and that is listed on the body’s online Garage Finder, is able to submit a nomination on the dedicated Garage Star Awards portal  to win one of the eight regional trophies on offer. 

As part of the entry requirements, consumers are asked to provide a short and personal account as to how their expectations were exceeded, and whether this was a one-off example or has happened on numerous occasions throughout the past year. Furthermore, with sales and repair businesses varying in size and location across the country, and for the purpose of fairness, each nomination will be judged on its own merits, rather than the awards being bestowed to a business that has received the greatest number of submissions. Nominations will be accepted up until October 30 2020. 

Bill Fennell, Chief Ombudsman and Managing Director of The Motor Ombudsman, said: “We look forward to reviewing the submissions in due course and choosing the worthy winners of our very first awards.”

The winners of The Motor Ombudsman’s 2020 Garage Star Awards will be announced on 24th November 2020.
