Savings of up to £5,000 up for grabs at one-of-a-kind UK Garage and Bodyshop Event

25 Apr 2022

The UK Garage and Bodyshop Event at Birmingham’s NEC in June is set to offer garage and bodyshop technicians the chance to take home up to £5,000 of exclusive show deals and discounts on the latest tools and equipment.

The event is aimed at helping attendees grow their businesses and is therefore providing a multitude of free giveaways and competition prizes for them to get their hands on and put to use in their workshops. 

With more than 50 free giveaways, plus discounts and competitions from its roster of confirmed exhibitors, the national event will offer huge savings to those first through the doors.

Visitors will even get the chance to win a classic starter car, courtesy of Lucas Oil, who is holding a charity raffle for the Sepsis Trust UK. The car has been recommissioned by YouTube’s ‘Auto Lass’ Jody Bevan, who will be at the show, sharing her experiences of being a female auto technician and MOT tester in the automotive world.

The deals include a 10 percent discount for visitors who purchase from OSCA’s stand, as well as a branded goody bag; 10 percent off TUNAP’s Problem Solving range, including the DPF cleaning kit, injector cleaning machine and more; and a 20 percent discount code from the RRP for the Sagola Pack 6000 air heater. Plus, if visitors become a member of the Elcometer Club, they can enjoy a 10 percent discount on their next Sagola purchase.

There’s also a chance to win an ABAC Compressor package worth over £250; an Evercoat lightspeed pack worth over £1000 with Indasa; and Alliance Automotive Group is set to have two vehicle simulators on the stand with a winner’s prize of two VIP tickets to the BTCC with NAPA and Apec.

Global fuel additive and engine oil manufacturer, JLM Lubricants, is offering those in attendance the chance to win an attractive product bundle worth over £200, with every visitor to the stand able to take away a selection of branded goods (while stocks last).

The deals and giveaways continue, as those who sign up for a free onsite Bodyshop Demonstration at Teroson's stand can win two Grandstand Plus tickets to the London ABB FIA Formula E event in July.

What’s more, Autogem has a selection of TPMS starter kits and sets of Michelin Pro Series wiper blades exclusively available to visitors at discounted rates. 

Well-known lubricants brand, WD-40, will be at the show too, giving away product and offering visitors the chance to get involved in a ‘spin the wheel’ competition with an Amazon voucher prize draw.

Title partners of top-flight rugby union league, Gallagher, is also holding a prize draw providing exhibition visitors with the opportunity to scoop a wide range of rugby merchandise.

Other competitions include a month’s worth of HiFlex plastic repair filler worth £129, and a three-day repair course worth over £1,500 from Cornerstone Technologies, as well as the chance to win a CF-D1 Panasonic tablet worth £1,595 from Maverick Diagnostics, who is also offering 10 percent discounts on all OEM package orders taken at the event, offering savings of £596.

Grant Elrick, sales director at Messe Frankfurt UK, organisers of the exhibition, said: “We’ve already had a whole host of deals and discounts confirmed but are expecting plenty more in the run-up to the show, and as in many cases it’ll be first-come, first-served, we’re urging visitors to arrive early to ensure they don’t miss out and can make the most of what the jam-packed show has to offer. Not only will it provide a detailed insight into the most up-to-date trends, tools and technology in the market, but they’ll also be able to benefit from significant savings.”
