BookMyGarage provides motorists an easy-to-use website that compares all relevant options by the measure they choose, transparently and fairly. While also giving garages valid, legitimate bookings along with offering a range of marketing services to expand their online brand. Our vision is to become the leading MOT and car servicing comparison site, serving the needs of motorists and garages alike.
BookMyGarage was initially conceptualized in 2013 in Portsmouth, United Kingdom by husband and wife: Douglas and Karen Rotberg. The idea came from customers of a previous company, Carsite, who would ask: “you’ve given me a great discount on a great car, but where do you recommend that I get it serviced?”
The initial design and market testing of service schedules created for garages to use with their customers. This was also the beginning of development for the back-office system.
The beginning of a company that helped consumers decide which service their car needed, at what price, and at which garage. We launched Tootcompare with only 1,500 garages.
We soon traded in the playful TootCompare name to leverage a well-known one, becoming RAC Garage Compare with 3,000 garages listed.
We soon re-launched the company and re-branded as BookMyGarage.com with 5,800 garages listed. Our aim was to provide essential B2B services for those garages who wanted to become more digital for their own clients.
An affordable app based solution to allow garages to send the vehicle owner a short video highlighting the issue with the car.
The initial trial of Secret Service with a large Volkswagen dealership. Trial results indicated successful thus leading us to introduce to more franchise dealerships.
