The winners of the annual Motor Codes Garage of the Year competition have been announced, with the best independent garage title going to Crescent Motoring Services in Burton upon Trent and the best main dealer award going to Pebley Beach Hyundai in Swindon.
The winning garages were chosen by their own customers, with over 13,000 reviews submitted to Motor Codes' website. Then judges went through the comments and criticisms left by the public to select each regional winner.
Chris Mason, managing director of Motor Codes, said: “Both businesses share a commitment to their staff and customers to drive quality, investing in apprentice programmes and partnering with local colleges through community programmes.
“Pebley Beach has shown an ability to make the most of digital initiatives, at the same time as retaining the personal touch.
“Crescent has clearly embedded itself in the local community, helping young people on the road to a rewarding, long-term career, undertaking impressive charity work and running valuable car care events.”
