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?”
