Automechanika Birmingham launches Garage of the Year Competition

New competition with a cash prize of £1,000

Published:  03 April, 2017

New for 2017, the organisers of Automechanika Birmingham have launched a Garage of the Year competition with a cash prize of £1,000. With 21 April the deadline for entries, garages need to act soon to make sure they are in the running.

The application process is simple. Workshops can either submit 150 words or send a one minute video clip explaining why they should be Garage of the Year. Entries should include information about improvements to their garage service such as new equipment, special customer promotions, and examples of excellent customer service. Garages could also mention ways they have increased profit, staff training or incentives and improvements to the building or facilities.

Simon Albert, event director for Automechanika Birmingham says: “Workshop owners and technicians are a key visitor group for us to welcome to Automechanika Birmingham 2017 so we have introduced a bigger programme for them. It is the place to look for new garage equipment and tools at special show prices, get free training and advice while keeping up to date with the industry’s changes in MOT and new technologies. The Garage of the Year competition aims to recognise and reward the best.”

The judging panel, made up of Simon Albert and Garage Wire director James Onions, will present the winner of the Garage of the Year with the cash prize of £1,000 during Automechanika Birmingham 2017, taking place 6-8 June 2017 at the NEC Birmingham.

    The Sun VIC 3000 Automatic Test Lane from Snap-on helps test centres save space and money. The VOSA approved equipment uses the Sun DGA 2500 Combi Gas Analyser as the central control for the entire test lane. This reduces the footprint and also provides a cost-effective route into upgrading to an ATL. A powerful PC is coupled with an adjustable 22" tilt and turn flatscreen monitor so the tester can easily see information. The diagnostic emissions analyser has automated test procedures and has a modular design so garages can expand the DGA 2500 into a complete diagnostic and information system.
