Cleevely Motors named Garage of the Year at The Blend


Cheltenham-based Cleevely Motors has secured the coveted Garage of The Year title at The Blend Awards 2023, held at The Eastside Rooms in Birmingham on the 7th October.


The distinguished honour recognises Cleevely Motors’ exceptional care of staff, outstanding customer service and strategic business growth.


“We are immensely proud to have been named ‘Garage of The Year’,” said Matt Cleevely, Managing Director of Cleevely Motors. “We were up against some of the very best independent garages, so it’s a testament to the tireless dedication of our entire team.”


A fabulous three-course dinner was enjoyed by all before David Massey of ADS Automotive took to the stage to unveil this year’s award winners. The Garage of The Year Award, sponsored by Castrol and The Race Group was presented to Cleevely Motors by Dan Bridges, National Network Manager at Certas Energy. The category, newly added for 2023, was open to any independent garage in the UK and Ireland.


Organised by community-driven garage management software Garage Hive, the celebrations followed a trade show during the day and an impressive line-up of renowned industry leaders, influencers, and innovators. The win came as a fitting end to a busy day for Matt Cleevely after twice featuring in The Blend’s action-packed line-up.


“Cleevely Motors is extremely deserving of this title,” said Ray Dilsons, Managing Director at Garage Hive. “We’d like to congratulate Matt and Claire on their achievement which will no doubt prove to be an inspiration for many others.”
