ENTRIES FOR TRUCKSTOP OF THE YEAR 2019 NOW OPEN

Truckstop News is inviting readers to vote for their favourite truckstops in the UK, and as always, voting is free and simple.

CLICK HERE TO NOMINATE

It is hoped TSoY will drive up standards of the nation’s truckstops, create a sense of worthiness amongst the great establishments that do support, and indeed look after, the thousands of trucks drivers working long hours day-in, day-out to keep the wheels of industry rolling and the shelves stocked.
For the 2019 award, there will be three Truckstop of the Year awards – for the Truckstops in three distinct sizes – large, medium or small.
For the avoidance of doubt, a small truckstop will be those with parking for up to 25 lorries, medium is for 25-100 trucks and large is for those establishments that can accommodate over 100 trucks parking of an evening.
As well as this, there are other categories; best food, best shower/toilets, best ‘added value’, best overnight stay (judged by drivers), warmest welcome and best parking area.
You can enter as a truckstop proprietor, member of staff, or drivers can enter to recommend the establishment based on their own experiences.
To enter the Truckstop News Truckstop of the year competition, you must get your entry to us by Friday September 27 at 1800.
Once the entry deadline passes, TSN will draw up a shortlist and the judging will start and the winners announced in the autumn.
All you have to do is fill in the online form on this website. Alternatively, you can fill in the details in the competition entry form on page 2 of any current issue of TSN and send to: Truckstop News, TSOTY Comp, Talk Media Sales, No 4 Court Lodge Centre, Plaxdale Green Road, Stansted, Kent, TN15 7PG.
