About The Garage Star Awards

The 2023 Garage Star and Customer Service Star Award winners have now been announced! Find out who they are!

The Garage Star Awards were introduced to recognise the lengths that individuals, and businesses go to, to consistently provide a high standard of service and workmanship, and the efforts that have been made to keep motorists across the country on the move.

We’ve also introduced Customer Service Star Awards for vehicle manufacturers, extended warranty providers and the head offices of dealer groups and garage chains.

You can read more about the Customer Service Star Awards here.

How will the winners be recognised?

There are eight regional Garage Star trophies and two highly commended honours on offer in each of the geographical areas.

From the regional winners, the judging panel will crown the national winner, and they will have the privilege of receiving £1,000 worth of Lifestyle Vouchers, a trophy, a branded certificate and a marketing pack to help promote their achievement.

How can customers nominate their Garage Stars?

You can find all the information for customers to be able to nominate you here.

What are the campaign timescales?

We will be accepting nominations from your customers from 2nd May 2023 until 15th October 2023, and we will be announcing the regional winners and the national winner during the last week of November 2023.

Thank you for your help in promoting the Garage Star Awards, and we wish you the very best of luck!
