Garage of the Year Finalist 2017 and 2018 

Garage of The Year 2018 Finalist

Once again, Community Motors was a finalist in the 'Garage of The year' competition, this time in the 'Community Initiative' section.

We were very proud to be named again this year as a finalist for the Community Initiative award at Automechanika’s Garage of the Year awards ceremony, held in the Director’s Lounge at Aston Villa Football Club on Tuesday 5 June.


Over 150 guests attended the prestigious event, and just 32 garages made it to the final shortlists for the six awards, from entries made by leading garages from around the UK. In the end, an industry panel of judges whittled down the entries down to just six finalists per category.


James Onions, Managing Director of awards hosts and industry publisher Garage Wire, commented: “The quality and professionalism of the finalists made decisions incredibly tough. Motorists can be reassured by the strenuous efforts all our Garage of the Year finalists make to deliver excellent customer service; the UK’s independent garage industry is in great shape.”


Special guest TV presenter Fuzz Townshend was on hand to announce the winner in each of the six categories, which recognised the different achievements and innovations of independent garages across the UK.


The eventual winner in our category was 'The Garage' in Whitburn, Scotland and the overall winner was Hillclimb Garage in High Wycombe - many congratulations to them both!

Some of our many happy customers...

Professional and friendly.. I was really impressed by their service and I do recommend them.


At last a genuine, reliable garage, where you can believe what you're being told! And they don't charge the earth either. The guys are always so helpful and friendly too.


Excellent customer service.  Covered the health check, replaced my failing battery and demonstrated and explained the issue with my brakes.   They could have replaced my front pads and discs but instead explained that as the braking performance was not affected the sound was purely a cosmetic issue and could be dealt with at a later date.


Very friendly professional service. Had car serviced this week and could not have received a better treatment staff very friendly and helpful. Very reasonable price would highly recommend Community Motors and will certainly be using them again.


Friendly, honest and so helpful! A refreshing change to most garages.


Excellent mechanical work, very friendly and a great underlying social cause. Thoroughly recommend this local garage


I had a full service on my Van. They were very helpful and knowledgeable and they have delicious free coffee in the reception. Great to have a place I can recommend to others with such high standards!
