TMO launches awards call

The Motor Ombudsman is calling for nominations for the fifth edition of its annual Star Awards aimed at recognising excellence across the garages and wider auto sector.

The awards include the Garage Star Awards, for independent garages, franchise dealers and body repair centres — and the Customer Service Star Awards, for vehicle manufacturers and warranty providers.

Nominees should be employees or businesses belonging to one of TMO’s four Chartered Trading Standards Institute-approved Motor Industry Codes of Practice.

Judges will select the winner of the competition’s highest honour, the National Garage Star Award, from the group of regional Garage Star Award winners.

TMO chief ombudsman and MD Bill Fennell said the awards offer a platform to showcase outstanding achievements and inspire others to strive for excellence in the work that they do.

Nominations can be made online up to October 18.
