We launch our new look website!

After months of hard work behind the scenes we’re delighted to unveil an all new website for The Good Garage Scheme.

Our updated site has been redesigned to offer visitors much improved usability and navigation, allowing you to find a trusted garage near you with just a few clicks.

The website continues to offer motorists the same great range of information on garages across the United Kingdom, including:

● Full listing of accredited garages in your area
● Motoring advice and tips including information on MOT’S, oils checks and car repair
● Service plans to help spread the cost of your MOT and Servicing
● Seasonal checks - one in summer and one in winter to enable cars to be ready for the changes ahead!

Importantly, the website provides an excellent opportunity for visitors to give feedback on our member garages and provide recommendations that can be viewed by other users when choosing a local service to use.

The site is fully optimised for use on mobile phones and other handheld devices such as the iPad and users can also download our easy to use mobile app directly from the website, enabling you to locate trustworthy garages wherever you go!

Don’t forget that you can also find lots of interesting information, opinion and updates here on our blog page at www.goodgarageschemeblog.com.

If you’d like to find out more about The Good Garage Scheme and our range of services and membership benefits, please contact our friendly team on 02476 474069 or visit our new website here.

Hats on for Mental Health

The Good Garage Scheme is supporting Hats on for Mental Health day on Friday 13th October alongside the automotive charity, Ben.

The day is part of a wider mental health campaign run by Ben and spotlights how mental health can affect anyone, at any time.

The campaign is particularly relevant as recent research shows two thirds of British adults say they have experienced mental ill-health at some point in their lives, according to a survey by the Mental Health Foundation.

In an industry which has a workforce of over 800,000 people, that equates to over 500,000 people potentially affected by mental health challenges!

Last year marked the first year of Hats on 4 Mental Health day – their first ever national fundraising event for the automotive industry. Everyone working in the industry was asked to get involved by wearing a hat to work for a day and an amazing £13,000 was raised! So, hats off to those who took part last year and made the day such a success.

The Good Garage Scheme has joined in with a hope to help raise even more this year.

Head office staff will be participating and posting photos on social media to show support and hoping as many member garages as possible will join in to help. Miles Better has already starting to show his support.

Simply text HATS97 £1 to  70070 or visit the justgiving page to donate here.
