When it comes to your vehicle, you want to make sure you are working with a garage that can provide you with outstanding service and quality. Whether you want to book your vehicle for an MOT or repair, you want your vehicle to be in good hands.

You can be reassured of the quality of the garage you want to work with by making sure they are members of both the Approved Garage Scheme and Good Garage Scheme accreditation.

Approved Garage Scheme

When a garage is a member of the Approved Garage Scheme, it means the Motor Industry Code approves them of Practice for service and repair. This means that it belongs to a network of independent garages, which are built on trust from the outset.

If you have issues with a garage that is a member of the Approved Garage Scheme, you can register a complaint through a trade association, which provides you with peace of mind.

Good Garage Scheme Accreditation

Another scheme that reassures you of the quality of the garage is the Good Garage Scheme accreditation. This scheme involves a series of automobile repair shop monitoring schemes based in the UK that claim to improve industry repair standards. This scheme again focusing on the customer and aims to benefit the customer overall.

How These Two Accreditations Benefit You

When a garage is a member of both the Approved Garage Scheme and Good Garage Scheme accreditation, it means that they constantly gather feedback from customers to improve. These two accreditations mean that the garage is closely monitored to ensure that you and your vehicle receive the best quality service.
