What is the IGA Members Area?

31 March 2017

If you’ve ever visited the Independent Garage Association website then you’ll know we like to keep you up-to-date with the latest industry news and information, as well as informing you of the comprehensive services that we offer.

In that time, have you ever clicked on to the ‘Members Area’?

It’s part of our website that is available exclusively to RMI IGA members, accessible by username and password (if you’ve forgotten your login details, call the member helpline), that can provide you with a wealth of information and help you with a range of different jobs. Not only does it include important technical links and Digital Service Records, but it also contains Human Resources documents available for you to download and print – so there’s an easy way to access contract forms, job descriptions, documents about managing employees and even legal documents.

As well as access to documents like this that help with the day-to-day running of your business, the Members Area also has sections with downloadable versions of the IGA, Trust My Garage and Car Repair Plan logos, so that you can easily add our branding to your website or printable forms – showing that your garage is a member of a respected Automotive Trade Body, and in the case of Trust My Garage, a member of a Chartered Trading Standards (CTSI) approved consumer code. You can even find marketing guides to help you promote your garage and membership. Our new monthly Autodata Technical bulletins are also kept in their own section in the Members Area, so you can access Frequently Asked Questions about technical information at the click of a button.

If downloading documents isn’t your thing, you can also use the Members Area to look at videos – including our Doodle Adverts for Trust My Garage and Car Repair Plan. These adverts are designed to help customers understand how independent garages can help them, so watching them may offer you some more insight into how to promote your garage to your customers – and they’re a great way to see how the IGA supports you and your business. If you’d like an original copy of one of the videos, please call the member helpline.

It may be that you don’t feel like you need to use the Members Area, and that’s okay. It’s there if you need to access it, as a set of resources for you to dip into whenever necessary. Sometimes that’s a little bit and sometimes it’s a lot! No matter how often you need to get information, the Members Area is there for you.

Click here to login and take a look, and if you’d like to suggest further documents or resources for the Members Area, simply give us a call on 0845 305 4230.
