About the BookMyGarage Blog

The BookMyGarage blog is a space dedicated to providing readers with helpful advice, in-depth guides, and the latest news relating to the automotive industry.

We cover everything from car maintenance tips to driving advice on our blog.

Our overarching goal is to empower our readers to make informed choices, providing valuable knowledge and handy tips to help them save money on their car along the way. 


Types of BookMyGarage Blog Content

The overall aim of each blog we write is to inform, educate, and entertain our readers.

We cover both timely and timeless blog topics here at BookMyGarage.

Bear in mind that potential readers of your blog may be completely new to car maintenance, so you should try and meet them at their level of understanding.

There are 3 main types of blogs guest contributors love writing for us:

  • Problem Blogs, explaining the car problem the reader is experiencing and providing them with a solution.
  • Maintenance Blogs, helping readers understand what they need to do to keep their car in top condition.
  • Driving Blogs, answering common questions readers have such as ‘What should you do when you break down on the motorway?’ and ‘What should I do if I feel anxious while driving?’ 


We are particularly interested in blogs relating to the following topics that fit into the categories above:

  • Car Servicing
  • MOTs
  • Fuel
  • Windscreens
  • Air Conditioning
  • Clutches
  • Batteries
  • Oil & Fluids

Submitting a Blog to Us

Please read our Content Guidelines carefully before submitting an article.

We ask that you don’t send us any full blogs until you’ve pitched your idea (as we’d hate for you to spend time working on something that doesn’t fit our audience...)

If you have demonstratable experience in the automotive industry, then we want to hear from you.

Ideally, you will be an established and credible blogger, too – but we will consider first-time bloggers if the piece is well-written and thoroughly researched.

Don’t worry if you’ve never written a published blog before. We can help you get your work into the best possible shape.

We want the article to be a piece of content we’re both proud of, so please don’t be put off if we suggest changes or edits to your finished blog.

We reserve the right to retain editorial control throughout the blog’s lifespan, but we won’t publish your blog until we know that you’re happy with it.  


Please pitch your ideas to:

We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
