This week, Unipart Automotive presented independent garage, Castle Point Motors, based on Manor Road Trading Estate, Benfleet in Essex, with its prestigious national award for Unipart Car Care Centre (UCCC) of the Year.
The 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, says: “We are thrilled to receive the award this year. It is uplifting to be recognised and rewarded for all the team’s hard work, as we are constantly striving to be at the top of our game. 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.”
