We won! Our 5th National Award in 4 years!

ABP have retained our crown for a 4th year as CAT Magazine National Garage of the Year 2013



In the motor industry, this is the big one. Entries come from all over the country so getting through to the final six for the fourth consecutive year was an accolade in itself.

We were thrilled to win the CAT award once, let alone four times! It’s a staggering achievement and an incredible start to 2013.

Winning this Award for a fourth consecutive year is unprecedented and we want to say a massive thank-you to all our customers & suppliers who took the time to vote for us. We don’t have the exact figure but we understand it ran into the thousands, so we couldn’t be more thrilled. All we need to do now is carry on giving our customers the 1st class service that they have come to expect and try and win again next year!

We received our award at a presentation ceremony held at Twickenham stadium, the home of English rugby in London which was attended by over 250 motor industry professionals. Likened to the independent motor trade version of the Oscars this is a nationally recognised award in the motor trade that comes with a highly prestigious title and is a massive achievement for ABP Motorsport and all of our hard working staff.

Our nomination came in recognition of our efforts in striving to achieve unparalleled levels of customer service in the garage industry along with our excellent results in the East Cheshire Trading Standards Golden Spanner scheme mystery shops scoring the schemes first ever perfect 100% score and our national Motor Industry Code of Practice customer feedback scores currently at 100% ABP Motorsport, Crewe, Cheshire - Winter Tyres, Servicing, General Repair, MOT, Exhaust, Tyres

This is the latest in what has been a busy time for ABP Motorsport recently including:
2010 The first ever 100% perfect mystery shop result in East Cheshire Trading Standards Golden Spanner approved garage scheme
2010 CAT Magazine National Garage of the Award
2011 CAT Magazine National Garage of the Award

Once again, thank you for your time in reading this and helping ABP Motorsport to win CAT Magazine’s 2013 Garage of the Year award.

We look forward to seeing you soon and maintaining your cars for many years to come.

Chris, Rich & the whole ABP team

In light of recent news I would like to say that for ABP the 2013 Award will be proudly accepted, displayed and remembered in the memory of JDR J. Derek Riddell who we had the greatest pleasure of serving as a customer for the past 4 years.

He was always very complimentary towards ABP and respected our high levels of customer service and shared passion becoming an ABP advocate. We looked forward to his annual visits and ever-growing jobs-to-do lists.

RIP JDR - He would have been proud of our win.

Chris

To be honest you did a great job with my car and so good I recommended you to a mate but having seen what you did with his car I would not use or recommend you again as to be honest I felt bad for recommending you.

So sorry but true.

Well deserved, you guys definable went the extra mile to sort out a Stoptech caliper problem that wasn't really your fault, out of your own pocket.
Great service and a nice JDR tribute too.
