The national ‘Cars and Stars’ promotion, which aims to support GSF’s thriving independent garage customer base, has seen 1,240 garages from across the country win up to £500 per month in Love2Shop vouchers, as well as being entered into the main prize draw, having achieved an agreed monthly spend target with the motor factor.
Stewart Chalkley, managing director at ASG Garages and winner of the brand-new car, said: “I was totally shocked.
“Honestly, I thought it might be a scam.”
Mr Chalkley has gifted the vehicle to Aaron Hilditch, manager at ASG’s Arlesey site, who has worked for the company since he left school at 18.
Mr Chalkley added: “Aaron has been with me a long time and he’s been a very loyal employee, so I wanted him to have the car to use as a run-about.”
Andreas Yiasouma, area manager for Letchworth, said: “This competition has been a great way to raise the profile of GSF.
“It’s something that most people think will never happen to them, so it’s just fantastic that a customer in my region actually won the vehicle.
“And what a great gesture from a boss to let a loyal member of the team keep such an incredible prize.”
Mr Chalkley began work as an apprentice at Arlesey Service Garage before he purchased the site 17 years ago, transforming it into the business it is today.
Since then, ASG Garages has grown to include another premises in Biggleswade and employs 14 members of staff across both sites.
Offering MOTs, servicing, repairs and diagnostics, both garages are also Bosch-approved service centres.
“I’ve used GSF Car Parts since I bought business 17 years ago and find them to be really helpful,” said Mr Chalkley.
“They call you to make sure that you’re fully stocked with everything you need and their prices are always competitive.
“Plus, they go out of their way to get parts to you as soon as you need them, and they work really hard to address any warranty issues you might have.”
