NEW figures revealed by Motor Codes highlight the quality of service received by customers who used an approved garage in Derbyshire.
Motor Codes, the Trading Standards-approved garage scheme, offers car owners a unique online review site.
Its listings direct people to around 8,000 approved garages – main dealer and independent – where people can read from more than 200,000 online reviews left by garage customers.
Chris Mason, Motor Codes managing director, said: “In the past, people have been anxious about which garage to trust.
“Through Motor Codes, people are able to shop exactly as they do for holidays, televisions and cars – by reading other people’s reviews before they buy.
“It’s a real confidence booster when it comes to choosing who to trust with your car and hard-earned cash.
“The vast majority of those who use a Motor Codes garage never have to make use of the free advice service.”
Motor Codes also operates a Citizens Advice-endorsed advice line and the good news for motorists in Derbyshire show that just 12 complaints were raised during the whole of last year about local Motor Codes garages.
More importantly, because of the measurements put in place under the approved scheme, all of the calls were resolved without cost to the customer.
