Service and Repair Code

The Service and Repair Code commits garages to an open, transparent and fair method of business, aiming to maintain consistently high standards across the industry. By subscribing to the Code, a garage is demonstrating its commitment to operate as a responsible business and deliver high levels of customer satisfaction.

In November 2011, the Service and Repair Code was awarded full Office of Fair Trading approval and now operates as a Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) approved code, giving you the confidence that, with a garage accredited to The Motor Ombudsman, you can be sure to receive a professional, reliable service.
