VARTA were the proud headline sponsors of the 4th annual Who Can Fix My Car Awards in Birmingham on 13th February. As the official technical partner for batteries to Who Can Fix My Car, VARTA supported the workshop seminar during the day, and then presented 2 of the winning garages with their awards at the evening event.
During the day Andy Cook, Technical Sales Manager talked to workshops about the complexities of replacing the battery on modern vehicles and emphasizing the importance of testing every vehicle’s battery, which was then followed by a slot from VARTA Brand Ambassador Andy Savva, The Garage Inspector. Savva spoke about the importance of fitting like for like technology and benefits of using OE replacement parts. There was interesting and engaging discussion afterwards, certainly thought-provoking points for the technicians attending on the future of battery replacement.
At the Awards later on, Jeremy Tollman, National Sales Manager talked about the support that VARTA can offer workshops and the technical partnership with Who Can Fix My Car. VARTA also presented the ‘best newcomer award’ and ‘hall of fame award’, won by Manchester Auto Cars Ltd and Express Tyre & Auto Centre respectively. Tollman spoke of the event; “We are thrilled to support the Who Can Fix My Car awards for the 3rd year in a row, and as headline sponsors this year. A big congratulations to all of the garages nominated and to the winners in each category. Our partnership is growing from strength to strength and we are looking forward to helping the 14,000 workshops on the platform with best practice information on battery testing and replacement in 2020 and beyond”.
