SWINDON’S Pebley Beach has been named regional Garage of the Year for the second year in a row, thanks to its customers.
The competition was run by national reviews website Motor Codes, which allows members of the public to rate their experience at any garage in the UK.
Nationally, one customer every minute posts a review on the site. Reviews for Pebley in the past week have included: “Pebley Beach in Swindon always give an excellent service. The staff are always very pleasant, friendly, efficient and professional,” and “Pebley Beach in Swindon is quite simply the best dealership I have ever been involved with.”
Another customer wrote: “The service offered by Pebley Beach Hyundai is always excellent, from being greeted by a friendly smile as soon as you walk through the door, with a cup of coffee should you have to wait a bit to be attended to, to the efficiency and attention to detail when you collect the car.”
An Overall Experience rating of 98 percent, and 99 percent of customers saying they would recommend Pebley to a friend, placed the firm in pole position in the franchised main dealer category in the South West region.
Pebley will now go on to the national final – which the company won last year – part of the Auto Express Awards in London on June 30.
Managing director Dominic Threlfall said: “We have very loyal customers who come back to us year after year and are happy to recommend us to friends and family.
“We work hard to retain their loyalty, and I’m delighted that the efforts of our award-winning team has paid off.”
Mark Terry, managing director of Motor Codes, said, “Motor Codes garages are providing first class service to motorists right across the UK, and we’re delighted to have this opportunity to celebrate the best in the business. These 11 regional winners are great ambassadors for the industry and they should be rightly proud of their achievement.”
While Pebley Beach is a franchise holder for the Hyundai and Suzuki brands, drivers of any make and model of car can take advantage of the firm’s MoT and servicing department.
