Lucky Motorist can now keep in ‘Touch’ with the Good Garage Scheme
Chance competition entry earns lucky motorist an iPod Touch and the chance to learn more about his local independent garage
“I am delighted that over 8,000 people have been introduced to the Good Garage Scheme through Lorraine Kelly’s popular magazine and that Mr Veevers now knows where he can take his car the next time he needs a service or repair.”
A chance competition entry in At Home With Lorraine Kelly’s online magazine has won a lucky Nottingham based motorist an iPod Touch and introduced him further to the Good Garage Scheme, who organised the competition. Chris Veevers isn’t the sort of person who regularly enters online competitions but upon seeing the prize, decided to give it a go. To his surprise, Chris was chosen over 8,000 entrants as the winner and was awarded with his prize at his local Good Garage Scheme member garage, Professional Vehicle Servicing in Nottingham.
After reading an editorial about the Good Garage Scheme in the magazine, which gave information on how to find your local Good Garage Scheme member via their website and mobile app, Chris entered his details to be put forward into a prize draw and was ‘delighted’ to find out that he had won.
“An iPod Touch is an expensive piece of equipment so it’s probably not something I would buy myself. Since winning one though, it has become a frequently used possession. I use it to surf the web at home and have downloaded quite a few apps. I also use it to access the Good Garage Scheme Facebook page and stay up to date with their most rated garages and driving tips.”
As well as winning an iPod Touch, the competition also served to familiarise Chris with the Good Garage Scheme. The Good Garage Scheme is a self-regulatory body of thousands of independent garages and MOT centres throughout the UK. “I didn’t know much about the Good Garage Scheme before I entered this competition, but I know a lot more now and regularly visit their website. As a motorist, I find their driving tips very handy. I also like their member feedback system. It’s one thing listening to a garage telling you how great they are, but when you see the feedback from other customers you actually believe it for yourself. Since winning this competition I am definitely more familiar with the Good Garage Scheme and plan on using Professional Vehicle Servicing in the future.”
Anndi Sheppard, Marketing Manager for the Good Garage Scheme commented: “I am delighted that over 8,000 people have been introduced to the Good Garage Scheme through Lorraine Kelly’s popular magazine and that Mr Veevers now knows where he can take his car the next time he needs a service or repair.”
