We work with the top 5% of independent garages in each area. Here are some of the reasons why only 1 in 20 garages qualifies as a Fixter garage:

  1. We use our extensive network to generate an initial shortlist of recommended garages in each areas
  2. We select only the garages in that list that are Limited Companies, with a minimum of 3 years’ trading
  3. We assess their various established affiliations (e.g. Bosch / Unipart / Autocare / Autofirst / Trust My Garage scheme)
  4. We then audit all online reviews, and only select those with an average of 4* or more
  5. Next we visit each garage in person and assess them based on the quality of premises and equipment, staff qualifications, capacity and technical capability
  6. We confirm that every garage uses manufacturer-equivalent parts only
  7. We then subject the qualifying garages to a full compliance audit
  8. Then, and only then do we negotiate preferential terms with the garage (including parts, labour, oil, MOT test rates) and invite them to join the Fixter network
