Motor Codes has uploaded a video to You Tube to highlight the importance for its code of practice for service and repair to customers.
Viewers of the short feature, ‘How to avoid cowboy garages’ (click here to view) get an explanation of what the code means to customers who take their cars in for service or repair to a subscribing workshop.
Motor Codes, the self-regulatory body which administers a family of codes of practice, launched the Motor Industry Code of Practice for Service and Repair a year ago and has over 5,000 companies signed up.
Chris Mason, Motor Codes director, said: “Simplicity is the name of the game and the film demonstrates clearly how we and the garage sector are determined to change the perception of the sector and identify where motorists can find value-for-money services with responsible business operators.”
The video is also on www.motorindustrycodes.co.uk which offers advice for consumers and businesses, including a garage search facility to enable customers to find the nearest code subscriber.
