Automotive industry regulator Motor Codes has released a top 10 list of regional winners in its Golden Garages competition – garages picked out from the thousands across Britain by motorists prepared to promote where best to take a car.
Voting closed this week in the Motor Codes' campaign and the top 10 now face a grilling from an expert judging panel, before the overall Golden Garage is announced in April.
Motor Codes managing director Chris Mason said: "Fighting back against the negative image often unfairly associated with garages, Golden Garages is there to champion examples of good service. It allows motorists to tell fellow drivers about the safe havens – garages that give top customer service.”
The overall Golden Garages winner will be revealed next month, following an independent RAC assessment and extensive judging session.
