The 2014 Independent Garage of the Year Award, sponsored by Trust My Garage, was presented to Russell Automotive Centre at the prestigious Motor Trader Awards.

Backed by the Independent Garage Association (IGA), Trust My Garage is the household name for value and quality from local independent garages.

The Motor Trader Industry Awards spotlight the very best in the motor industry. Russell Automotive Centre, from Kingsbury, North-West London are this year’s top independent garage, after fighting off stiff competition from Star Tech (Dorset), who were highly commended, Powells Garage from Cornwall (last year’s winners) and ACC UK, Farnborough.

After receiving their award, Jane Russell, Russell Automotive Centre Director commented, “We are so happy to have achieved this award in our competitive industry after only 7 years in the business. It underlines that we are doing things right.

“It's very hard for an independent to stand out from the crowd, so this award really helps with that.  It shows we are running a great garage that cares about its customers.”

Stuart James, IGA Director commented, “We are very proud for Trust My Garage to sponsor this award that highlights the quality of independents up and down the country.”

“I would like to congratulate Russell Automotive on their triumph and commend the other finalists, who continue to raise the bar in our industry.”
