Small Business Saturday is coming up (Saturday 1st December). It’s important to support our small, local, independent businesses such as the local garage. MEB is one such garage and is a great place to meet all your car needs. Why are small garages better than large corporate dealerships? Read on to find out.
- Local Economy
It goes without saying that investing in the local economy is going to benefit the local community. As money spent there is going to be recycled back into the local economy.
For local businesses to do well they need a good reputation. Word of mouth is a great way to bring in new business. A good reputation is a great way to bring repeat business. So small independent garages such as MEB work constantly to ensure they reach the highest standards by employing highly skilled staff, ensuring accurate and up to date technical knowledge and ensuring good customer service.
At MEB we are proud of our reputation and the testimonials we receive from our customers:
“Gerard’s technical knowledge and customer service ethos has clearly been passed on to all who work for him. They make every effort to turn around jobs as quickly and efficiently as possible while keeping the customer fully informed of costings and timings.”
- Local and Convenient
Your local garage should be just that – local. Easily accessible and convenient, especially if you have to leave your car for the day. At MEB the Motor Centre we are based in the heart of Edmonton in North London. We provide a pick up and drop off service and a free courtesy car if needed.
Many motorists are not satisfied with their garage experiences and want a recognised garage code with minimum standards. Results of the Motor Codes survey can be read here http://www.motorcodes.co.uk/motorist/press-releases/gearing-up-for-garage-reform.html. At MEB the Motor Centre, we are not only a member of the Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMI) but have been added to their list of trusted garages. We have been awarded five stars for the last few years in the Good Garage Scheme. Furthermore, we are a Which Trusted Trader, giving consumers peace of mind that they are choosing a reputable trader.
