Eight reasons to choose Approved Garages

by Hugh Wilson | 18 Apr 2017

You really can trust your vehicle to one of our 750 plus garage members across the UK. Here’s why:

1.  We have more than 750 garages on the network, so there is bound to be an Approved Garage near you!

2.  GROUPAUTO – Approved Garages’ parent company – is one of the largest suppliers of training to garage professionals in the UK. This means our members are up to date with the latest equipment and techniques, and can give customers a better service.

3.  Our website is simple itself to use. Just enter your postcode and you’ll find trusted garages near you. And we publish every customer review we receive on our website, whether good, bad or indifferent. Unlike some other networks, we don’t cherry pick favourable feedback.

4.  Talking of customer feedback, our garages have a 99% customer approval ratings, higher than any other independent garage network and well ahead of the franchised main dealers.

5.  Approved Garages only use original equipment or matched quality parts, so not only is your car’s warranty unaffected, you also have the peace of mind that comes with high spec, guaranteed parts.

6.  You don’t just have to take our word for any of it. Recently Approved Garages has been featured everywhere from The Guardian to Garage Wire.

7.  It’s not just about a great garage service. Our garage members regularly take part in charity challenges and events. And Approved Garages as a whole is a proud sponsor of the 2017 Betway Premier League darts, a partnership that has seen the group featured in local media across the country.

8.  Approved Garages attracts a new customer for its garage members every six minutes on average. We think that means we must be doing something right, but we’d love you to put us to the test yourselves. Find your independent Approved Garage today.
