On accepting the award Paul Bismanis, managing director of Newmans Garage stated “We are both incredibly pleased and proud to win this prestigious award and it reflects the hard work our team have put in. This year we have extended our premises and taken on new staff as we want to continue providing the best services to drivers and companies in and around Nottingham”

    I spent 6 years fighting these idiots in the courts. Despite all their lies I was eventually awarded a settlement. Do not take you car here.
