100 year old garage amongst the first ‘City Brakes’ winners

The Parts Alliance’s ‘City Brakes’ promotion, which runs until the end of April,  has found some of the 25 garages set to win luxury trips to top European cities.

The holidays include three nights’ accommodation with flights and transfers for two people to Budapest, London, Amsterdam, Prague, Edinburgh, Paris, Dubrovnik, Rome, Barcelona or Brussels.

“Customers are finding winning scratch cards but there are still lots more holidays to be won,” said Simon Moore, Head of Marketing at The Parts Alliance. “‘City Brakes’ is proving popular with customers and is helping our member branches promote the benefits of fitting better quality braking components.

Winner Exminster Garage boasts an impressive history stretching back virtually 100 years to 1920. Today the garage offers service, repairs and MOTs on all makes and models.

Service Director Sam Strachan received the winning card and was congratulated in person by The Parts Alliance’s Regional Business Director Paul Dineen.

Father Glen Strachan has worked at the garage which employs six staff for 23 years and owned it for the last nine. He’s been a customer of The Parts Alliance’s Exeter branch for six years.

“We get excellent service from a knowledgeable and helpful team, they’re just a nice bunch to deal with,” said Glen. “I’m delighted, we haven’t had a holiday for a while and my wife and I have always wanted to visit Prague.

“We like Delphi pads as they fit first time and we don’t ever get warranty issues or customer complaints.”

The Parts Alliance is now urging garages not to miss out as the promotion moves towards its mid-point.

Besides the holidays, further prizes include 150 essential gadgets such as smart speakers, fitness trackers, tablets, DAB radios and power banks along with a merchandise pool of 27,000 items with mugs, tins of sweets, snack packs, torches and USB chargers all there to be claimed.

For a chance to win any of the prizes customers need to purchase Delphi or Bendix brake pads from their nearest branch before the end of April. More information is available by visiting www.delphicitybrakes.com and www.bendixcitybrakes.com.

The Parts Alliance announce 25 ‘City Brakes’ holidays to be won by April

The Parts Alliance will be sending 25 garages on luxury mini-breaks to a host of top European cities in its biggest ever promotion.

Campaign scratch cards will be included with all sets of Delphi and Bendix brake pads supplied during March and April.

City Brakes will run across all branches of The Parts Alliance, so it’s available from Allparts, BBC Superfactors, BMS Superfactors, Bromsgrove Motor Factors, CES, Dingbro, GMF, GSF, Parts Alliance (South West), Qualvecom, SAS Autoparts, SC Motor Factors, and Waterloo.

The city holidays include three nights’ accommodation with flights and transfers for two people to a choice of ten leading city destinations. So, whether it’s to relax in Parisian café culture, delve into Rome’s ancient history or relax on Barcelona’s Sant Sebastià beach, there’s something for everyone.

Further prizes include essential gadgets such as smart speakers, fitness trackers, tablets, DAB radios and power banks along with a merchandise pool of mugs, tins of sweets, snack packs, torches and USB chargers all there to be claimed.

“We’re delighted to be able to offer customers such a wide range of prizes,” said Simon Moore, Head of Marketing at The Parts Alliance. “They’ll benefit from chances to win whilst gaining the peace of mind and customer appreciation that comes from fitting quality brake pads.”

Delphi pads are manufactured to meet OE standards, whilst the world-renowned Bendix braking brand was recently returned to the UK aftermarket with GSF Car Parts.

The Parts Alliance says the opportunity to roll out City Brakes across all branches has resulted from the success of last year’s Dream Drive and Best of Brakes promotions. These not only captured customers’ imaginations with 12 dream holidays but also saw many more garages switching into supplying Delphi brake pads.

“To be able to offer our City Brakes promotion across more branches, with more holidays than ever to be won, is really exciting,” added Simon.
