No one knows better than the locals.
In an effort to find the best that the Lithgow area has to offer, from best place to go for a walk to best hangover breakfast, the Lithgow Mercury is using the power of social media to ask the community to nominate the best of the best.
This time round we asked you to vote for who you think is the best mechanic in town.
Winner: Brad's Garage
The staff at Brad's Garage were over the moon when they were presented with their award, as voted by Lithgow residents.
Owner Brad Holzmann said his garage had been servicing the Lithgow community for 12 years and always did their best.
"We always thought we were the best, we're just human we try our best but it feels good that the community feels the same," he said."Thank you to who everyone who voted for us."
Locals know best:
Brad's dad and co-owner Harry said the garage was a team effort and they were lucky to have quality employees.
"We've got a good team here and Brad's the captain [of the ship] and he steers it," he said.
"It's nice to be recognised. We look after our customers and from that we get a lot of work through word of mouth and it's so rewarding.
"I'm very proud," he said.
Customer Sharon Rigby said her and her family had been coming to Brad's Garage for two years.
"He's always done us right and the only person that we trust with our cars," she said.
