Local search, done the way it should be

We developed Garagesnearme.co.uk because we wanted to create a better way to search. Our market research showed that there was a serious lack of quality online listing sites properly serving the needs of customers and garage owners. We wanted to connect local searchers to garages - fast. To do this, we harnessed the power of Google's algorithm and our domain name, which always appears first in search results when customers search for garages near them.

No more expensive advertising

We’ve created a business model that enables us to offer massively reduced online advertising costs to local garages, giving them an effective, affordable way to advertise, so they get the most out of the area they're based in.

This is great news for smaller, independent garages as they can now compete fairly for their share of online business, using a powerful marketing tool that won’t drain their budget.
