Introducing the 2019 Garage Work Provider Report

Introducing the 2019 Garage Work Provider Report

30 April 2019

Following the release and positive reception of last year’s original Garage Work Provider Report, the IGA team jumped straight back into even deeper research into the marketplace to uncover and compare the vastly different practices, business models, costs and terms of garage work provision companies.

The new 2019 Garage Work Provider Report is double the length of the original, features even more member experiences and will help you to make an informed decision about which consumer facing work provider to work with, or whether to focus efforts in promoting your own brand directly to consumers.

The content is based on factual evidence and provides clear guidance on which work provider, if any, would be best suited for your business, and was compiled using a combination of direct research, meetings with work providers (where possible) and member feedback.

The report will help you to decode how these companies operate by including:

  • An in-depth analysis on the current work provider marketplace, including the levels of transparency for contracts, business models and fees, and how a “race to the bottom” on prices could be perceived
  • An individual study of the larger work providers active in today’s marketplace
  • A suite of comparison tables providing a simple way to compare work provider business models, fees, charging structures, contract terms and more
  • Conclusions and recommendations, which will provide a guide for business decisions

You should receive your copy of the 2019 Garage Work Provider Report in the post by the end of the week. In the meantime, you can click here to browse last year’s report ahead of the new release.

We welcome your feedback and will continue to monitor this marketplace with the intention of producing further reports in the future. Please send us your queries, feedback or your own experiences with any of these providers by calling the direct member helpline or 0845 305 4230, or emailing enquiries@rmif.co.uk.
