A BRADFORD garage has received a national award at a ceremony in Birmingham.

Nest Autos, was announced as the "Shell Helix Specialist" - a nationwide category at the WhoCanFixMyCar.com 2019 Garage Awards.

The garage, which is based in the Victoria Road Industrial Estate in Eccleshill, was also nominated in the "Best Garage Yorkshire & Humber" category.

It was looking to bag that title for the third time in a row, having won in both 2017 and 2018.

But, Nest Autos just lost out to Express Tyre and Auto Centre in Ossett.

Director and owner of Nest Autos, Nat Corbet, said: "I decided a little over three years ago after not being able to find reputable garage in the area to leave the world of computer support and set up as a repair garage with the aim of being fair and transparent with our service and pricing, and being able to be trusted because of this.

"We have had some ups and downs along the way, as is often the way as a small business, even through these times we have strived to put our customers first and this has in turn led us to gain a good reputation and a few awards along the way."

Senior Motor Vehicle Technician, Mark Bellerby, said: "We put our heart and soul into our job. When you bring a car in, that car belongs to us then to care for as best as we can - whatever fault needs sorting."
