The 2018 British Bodyshop Awards take place tonight and five Nationwide bodyshops are nominated in various categories being presented this evening.
This prestigious industry event hosted by the ABP Club is an evening for the UK body repair industry to come together and to celebrate the great work over the past 12 months. As the awarding companies announce their finalist, Nationwide are delighted that five of their bodyshops have been named as nominees in three categories.
The hard work of these Nationwide teams is being recognised by customers in the below categories:
AXA Insurance: Bodyshop of the Year
· Nationwide, Gateshead
Direct Line Insurance Group: Speedy Repairer Award
· Nationwide JCC, Grantham
LV= Insurance: Best Loved Network Partner Bodyshop
· Nationwide Gladwins, Kings Lynn
· Nationwide Gladwins, Norwich

These nominations highlight two of Nationwide’s values – ‘We put our customers first’ and that ‘We always look for continuous Improvements’ and we are hoping that the hard work of their teams results in being named winners of the respective awards on the evening.
The evening is an opportunity for the industry to recognise and celebrate success and Nationwide Network Services will also be presenting two awards.
