Castle Point Motors in Benfleet, Essex, has been named Unipart Car Centre of the Year.
The national accolade highlights the high quality standards of the garage, aligned with the government-backed Motor Codes scheme, in offering a reputable and reliable service to motorists.
Castle Point Motors demonstrated high usage of UCCC branding within the garage and in its advertising. It also achieved a high level of engagement with Motor Codes by completing a number of Motor Codes feedback forms and ensuring its UCCC profile was up to date on the member’s website.
The Unipart Car Care Centre will receive a bespoke promotional video to incorporate on its website and for viewing in its reception area to help increase its customer base.
Alan Foster, owner of Castle Point Motors, said: "Consumer trust has always been a challenge in our industry and we believe the UCCC award is a valuable exercise for any garage wanting to evaluate its performance. This award reinforces to our customers that we are a reputable independent garage which is fair and honest, and offers a quality reliable service by trained, qualified technicians with technical expertise.”
Mark Dixon, CEO Unipart Automotive, said: "Castle Point Motors offers outstanding customer service backed up by skilled technicians. The garage is prominent in its local community and delivers a value for money quality service. These are attributes we expect from all Unipart Car Care Centres but Castle Point has set the bar for excellence extremely high not only as a Unipart Car Care Centre but also for local independent garages across the UK."
