Its ‘full-service’ offering sees it provide vehicle parts dismantled, quality graded and supplied with full provenance history and warranty, over the counter, online and by phone.  

Meanwhile, the Salvage Company award recognises the innovation Silverlake applies to its UK-wide operations which sees the business process more than 35,000 salvage vehicles a year.

Salvage cars are sourced from business clients including insurers, garages and dealers, and consumers who can get a quote by phone or the website.

Winning the Community Impact Award recognises the community initiatives supported by the business including, fundraising for community charities through its UDonateacar.com scheme; supporting local colleges and young people by supplying salvage vehicles for training courses and work experience placements; providing its site and salvage vehicles for emergency services training exercises; supporting the elderly and vulnerable in the region via sponsorship of the Blue Lamp Trust; and helping to keep the local football club at the heart of the community through its continued sponsorship of the Eastleigh Football Club stadium for the last 12 years.

Commenting on the wins, Allen Pebble, managing director of Silverlake, said: “I am over the moon for the business to have received this trio of awards and the associated industry recognition. None of this would be achievable without the dedication of our awesome people and I am full of admiration and thanks.

“I want to keep Silverlake and Hampshire where we belong by continuing to build on our many years of hard work and investment. Next year we will be submitting an application to Hampshire County Council to grow and update our facilities. We need to future-proof the business as we move away from petrol and diesel vehicles to alternative fuels. These plans are great news for local jobs and the regional economy.

“I hope they will help Silverlake win many more awards too.”
