After ramping up its presence in the UK aftermarket over the last few months, GaragesNear.Me has been working behind the scenes on its website to ensure it’s fully SEO optimised and user friendly for both customers and garages to increase the work flow to garages.
Signing up to the consumer garage booking platform is completely free, with no registration or annual fees, and with just 10% of the proceeds on a per-booking basis going to GaragesNear.Me only after the work is completed, makes it a modern booking solution with a 24/7 data driven quotation and confirmation portal, and so a win-win situation for both parties.
To make it even more appealing, the sign-up process where garages fill out their information and the services they offer, only takes five minutes, and once completed, the work will begin to be sent to them. The booking system is easy to use and can be accessed through a phone, tablet or desktop. Garages can also decide on what booking slots they want, so for example, a garage can state that they only want to offer availability every Wednesday between 1-5, it’s entirely up to the garage on how much work they receive through the site.
On the consumers’ side, motorists using the site are provided with instant and accurate quotes based on the vehicle manufacturers’ data. Once they’ve put in their registration, the GaragesNear.Me pricing engine looks through all kinds of data, such as make and model, manufacturer service schedules, OE part numbers, oil grades, OE part prices and labour times. This data is combined with each garage’s own parameters, such as hourly rate, to provide an instant quote in real time.
Once a driver has decided on a garage, GaragesNear.Me share contact details with the customer, which allows the garage to deal directly with them.
Overall, the garages need to invest just five minutes of their time, and in return, receive work that will cost them just 10%, so there’s still a large profit margin to be made!
