RMIF Members Sweep The Board At Northern Ireland 'Garage Of The Year' Awards

‘I am delighted that Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMIF) members have swept the board at the recent “Garage Trader” Garage of the Year 2005 awards,’ said Noel Smyth, RMIF Northern Ireland Regional Manager. The event was held at the RMIF Northern Ireland Annual Dinner last month.

The RMIF winners were:

Independent Garage of the Year 2005
  • WINNER: Bob Mullan Motors Limavady
  • Runner-up: GMW Ballymena
  • Runner-up: Auto Q, Ravenhill Road, Belfast
Franchised Dealer Garage of the Year 2005
  • WINNER: David Prentice BMW Portadown
  • Runner-up: Shaws of Bangor
  • Runner-up: David Prentice MINI Portadown

The winners have recently made significant investment in their businesses, with Bob Mullan Motors opening a new purpose-built showroom, boasting a coffee bar, children’s entertainment, accessory shop and a wide selection of cars, and David Prentice BMW completing a £2 million refurbishment programme, including a state of the art workshop. Both were recognised for their high customer service levels and comprehensive range of services and facilities.

Smyth continued: ‘Businesses who belong to the RMIF strive for excellence, and it is wonderful news when this excellence is justly rewarded. The Federation takes its commitment to quality customer care extremely seriously - these superb awards are evidence of that.’

He added: ‘The RMIF’s dedicated Consumer Motorline - 08457 58 53 50 - regularly gives consumers guidance on where to find local RMIF garages and franchised dealerships; motorcycle dealers and rider training associations; bodyshops; auction houses; cherished number plate dealers; and petrol retailers.

‘With one phone call, members of the public can rest assured they will be advised of the names of reliable RMIF businesses, adhering to the principles of quality service, sales, information, guidance and customer care.

‘Alternatively, consumers can visit www.rmif.co.uk to use the online “Find-A-Service”.’
