The UK service and repair sector is set to be transformed in 2010 as Motor Codes embarks on its consumer awareness campaign boosted by support from the Department for Transport.
Motor Codes is by far the largest consumer protection code of its kind with its subscriber base already exceeding 6,200 garages nationwide.
Motor Codes Ltd provides motorists with a tailored list of nearby garages that guarantee to provide open, honest and trustworthy service at fair, transparent prices.
Launched in 2008 and now backed by the DfT, along with consumer groups such as Trading Standards and major industry bodies, the Motor Codes team looks to 2010 as the pivotal year for subscribing garages and their customers.
Chris Mason, Motor Codes director said, “There is no need for anyone to feel ripped-off or mistreated by their service and repair centre as Motor Codes garages guarantee this high level of service.”
In a recent letter to Motor Codes, transport minister Paul Clark said that he welcomed the success of Motor Codes and was encouraged by the level of support from across industry. He made particular reference to the support Motor Codes gained from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, a key government division whose work impacts directly on every service and repair garage.
“We encourage motorists to use a garage that subscribes to an Office of Fair Trading approved code of Practice, such as the Motor Industry Code for Service and Repair,” said Paul Clark MP. “Membership of such a code demonstrates the garage’s commitment to standards of work, customer service and procedures for redress.”
