Golden Garages rebranded

Annual contest open for pre-registration

Published:  19 January, 2012

PRE-registration for a competition to find the Garage of the Year has begun.

The competition was formerly known as Golden Garages, but now simply as Garage of the Year.

The free-to-enter competition is open to all service and repair centres - franchised and independent, large and small - aiming to find UK motorists' favourite garage. The garage that polls the most votes from the motoring public is declared the winner.

Motor Codes director Chris Mason, explains:  "Since the last competition, we have received fantastic feedback from many garages about the increased business the campaign has driven.  The support from Havoline and the broader award categories will help us make an even bigger impression on the public about the quality of service from Motor Codes garages."
