The MTA Northern Region Awards were held at the Auckland War Memorial Museum on Saturday, September 23.
The winners were chosen after a public voting campaign on Facebook and other social media.
More than 3000 people voted for the businesses they felt had given them great service, with the results being checked over by a panel of judges.
Northern region chairman Geoff Harper says the entry standards were very high.
“There’s been a huge investment by businesses, particularly dealers and independent workshops in presenting themselves in the best possible light. It made it hard to narrow down the finalists,” he says.
