You might have noticed that Quanz Auto Body proudly displays some awards on our site — we’ve been voted Best of the City by Albuquerque The Magazine three times! We’ve won in 2011, 2013 and 2015, and we were a nominee this year as well.
Voting closed on August 1, and we’ll have to wait for the big announcement in December to see the results, but we thought this would be a good time to talk a little bit about the award. What does it really mean to be Best of the City?
Albuquerque the Magazine hosts an annual “Best of the City” award for local businesses. The competition started in 2004 and has become a marker of quality for companies all over the city.
There are more than 275 different categories, spanning everything from food and shopping to health, beauty and — of course — auto care and collision repair. Readers cast more than 50,000 votes annually, and the unveiling, which takes place in the extra-long December issue, is one of the most anticipated events for Albuquerque The Magazine’s readers.
What it Means for You
We were nominated this year in three categories: Best Customer Service, Best Auto Repair and Best Collision Repair Shop.
Whether or not we win another title this year, the most important thing to us is knowing that we have the support of people in the community – because it’s our mission to provide the best quality auto care you can find to the drivers of Albuquerque. No matter what, we stand by our motto: We Exist To Make It Better.
We’ll work hard to keep providing that great customer service and quality workmanship that has earned us the appreciation of this great city no matter what. But we’re not going to lie — having some recognition and support from Albuquerque’s citizens feels pretty great!
