I’m delighted with the win. I didn’t trust garages, and went to approved garages website to find a reliable one. The garage I found haven’t let me down and I will use them again. Really happy with the service and works provided by Quality Car Services, all courtesy of Approved Garages.

I wasn't aware of the promotion, so was really surprised to hear that I'd won. It's the first time that we've used the website. They found us a local garage whose team were friendly, efficient and in addition to the service helpful with advice. We would not hesitate to use both the garage again or the site.
