The Motor Ombudsman has announced 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 The Motor Ombudsman’s Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI)-approved Motor Industry Codes of Practice for Service and Repair and/or Vehicle Sales, is able to submit a nomination on the dedicated Garage Star Awards portal (TheMotorOmbudsman.org/Awards) 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.
From the nominations that are received up to 30 October 2020, a shortlist will be created. So if you’ve had a good experience from a business, enter them today.
