“BookMyGarage has given us a website that is mobile enabled, we have a booking widget and customers can get hold of us when we’re open or closed and book anytime of the day or night. BookMyGarage now looks after all my digital needs including facebook content, which also contains a booking tool so customers can book online. I'm also trying out their VMA product, which allows customers to see what needs to be replaced on their vehicle and the cost.”
Richard Gray, Owner of Triangle Cars, Havant
“In January 2017 ‘BookMyGarage’ launched our brand new website and started running Facebook adverts for us. They were really friendly and helpful, Andy came out and talked us through everything and explained how it all works, and calls or visits us when he’s in the area.
We have a fantastic user friendly website along with informative videos and a widget to take bookings online. They also manage our Facebook target marketing campaign. We used to get the odd email enquiry come trough our old website but never realised until the new site went live that so many people would use it. It’s also not just an mot here and there, we get loads of service work and combination work due to the way the pricing is shown. All in all we have had 86 bookings since January and we are extremely happy with the service provided.”
Adrienne, Charminster Auto Repairs
“We are exceedingly happy with our return on investment and will continue to use BookMyGarage to promote our business. Our key account manager Mandy, has been excellent in the set up stage and continues to support and help grow our business.”
Kevin Burnett, DSA Autocentre
“I could not recommend BookMyGarage enough. From start to finish the process was so simple. Our website now looks modern and is easy to navigate. The online booking has been brilliant, we’ve had just short of a hundred bookings made in the first six months, many of them new customers. We have also had very positive feedback from customers saying the online booking and website are both easy to use.”
Neil, Station Garage Park Gate
“I think having BookMyGarage’s support is the best thing I’ve done! I’ve only had the site since September and in that time I have had around 8 bookings of new customers purely from the site alone without the Facebook advertising. The cost of the site has already been covered by the 8 new customers and they will cover the next two months if I didn’t get any over December and January, any that I do get will be a bonus!
Most companies will call and promise the world and try and paint a picture of a queue of new customers at the door and at first, I was sceptical but took a chance and it paid off. I would recommend anyone considering a new website to use BookMyGarage. All was done for me with minimum input allowing me to run my business without being hassled.”
Mark Faetz, Owner, Wallsend Test Centre
“RG motor services have been trading since 2008, for nearly nine years we have carried out numerous advertising campaigns, such as newspaper, directory’s, leaflets and we had a bespoke website built for us. I’m sure all above have a made an effort but which one I would really struggle to pick, and my confidence in advertising was diminishing along with my work load.
But this year, I signed with BookMyGarage. Our view on advertising has transformed, I am now seeking more staff, as my work load has increased, and our online bookings and phone calls from new customers have gone up. Of all the campaigns I have done never have I seen an impact such as this. And I can only put his down to the BookMyGarage team.
Once again thank you very much BookMyGarage for all your hard work and pushing me in the right direction.”
Ryan Ginifer, Owner, RG Motors
“We are seeing that this is a great way of demonstrating the value we can provide to motorists in our area. We have had bookings from motorists who we would probably not have seen otherwise, but who have selected us based on our quality, additional services and value.”
Paul Cliff, AutoSafety centre, Widnes
“We got two bookings immediately after the booking tool was added to our website, both major services. Our customers think we’re really digitally savvy which make us look good too! We change the lead time and the prices ourselves to fit our business needs. So far a valuable service from BookMyGarage.”
Sharon, WMSS, Erdington Birmingham
“I have run Fields Car Centre for over 36 years and have become very sceptical of people who say they can get us more business in via the internet. But after speaking to another garage owner who was singing the praises of BookMyGarage I thought I’d look into them. Our digital manager agreed that BookMyGarage does not work for everyone, but the more we talked the more I thought we can’t lose. We have been with BookMyGarage for 3 months and have received 20 good bookings. If you’re like me (old school) what I would say is give it a go.”
Richard Field, Owner, Fields Car Centre
“BookMyGarage is helping me attract more customers through the internet and social media, and as a result I am booking in lots of new customers every month for servicing!”
Darren, Owner, D&G Auto Repairs
“I don’t usually let sales people through the door of the garage but on this particular occasion I couldn’t be more pleased that Andy, my Digital Manager came in. BookMyGarage have given us a great new website that is so easy for both us and the customers to use and takes instant online bookings. I’ve always been sceptical and thought people don’t want to book online and they’d rather talk to us directly, but I cannot believe the difference this new website has made.
As well as looking after my Facebook page and posting every day they also actively look for more new customers in the local area of my garage, something which I don’t unfortunately have the time to do myself. We used to get 1 or 2 email enquiries a week. Since we’ve had the new site in February 2017 we have received over 500 online bookings which is fantastic!!”
Emma Tye, Director, MOT Supercentre Andover
“I have been using a 3rd party company to bring in extra work to the garage for the last couple of years. This wasn’t ideal as I was paying them a large commission based on the price of the work and I never actually got to keep the customer for my own benefit
Andy approached me in December 2016 and offered an alternative whereby he would look after ME as an individual garage and provide work based on MY prices and MY lead times and I will keep the customer as my own moving forward. There was so many benefits to this I saw the value immediately. The customer pays me direct and they’re prompted to leave feedback. I’ve had loads of new customers book into the garage with the new website and booking tool and customers love how easy it is
I’ve been really pleased with how everything’s gone and I have now increased my monthly spend with BookMyGarage to reach more local customers as I want to grow my own customer base and eventually no longer use the 3rd party”
Keith Blake, MTS Motors
“I have been using ‘BookMyGarage.com’ for the past 5 months. Initially, I tested the water with BookMyGarage by agreeing to receive jobs on a pay as you go basis. This worked well and was far better that the experience of using the other online organisations due to the fact that the only jobs referred to me were prospective customers who had already chosen to have work done at my garage on the BookMyGarage website.
As these first referrals had worked well, I decided to move to the next level of paying a quarterly fee up front for work referrals plus the inclusion of an online booking tool on my existing website. The amount of work generated by this method has increased month on month so I am very happy. Also, The personal support I’ve received from the staff at the organisation has been excellent.”
Nick Brennan, Owner, A47 Car Testing Centre
“My website has been live for 11 days now and I can proudly say that it has surpassed all of our expectations. We have already taken 12 bookings directly through the site and 2 telephone calls to book in. Of these 14 people, 11 are new customers and 3 are existing customers that booked out of hours/at the weekend. This has so far generated over £1500 worth of work and even more surprisingly the combination bookings of service and MOT is about 90%. Long may this continue. I have Facebook advertising with various promotions including the free MOT checker which customers seem to love too.
I am looking forward now to expanding the business and taking on more technicians to deal with the increased workload. Any potential new BookMyGarage customers should have no doubt that this is the way forward. This has seriously opened my eyes to the future”
Graham Arnold, Owner, AMG The Garage Gosport
“BookMyGarage staff are very helpful and they even showed me how to add a booking service to my Facebook page as well as my website. Bookings started coming in quickly, and the customers have been great and have posted positive feedback, which also gets posted on my Twitter account! This is incredible value and a must for any modern day independent garage”
Philip Madeira, Owner, Complete Auto Stockport
