Autofirst and RAC team up for new garage network

Published:  12 February, 2019

Autofirst Network has joined forces with the RAC in a bid to create the biggest independent garage network in the country.

Formed from existing RAC Approved Garages and Autofirst Network members, along with new sign ups, the newly created ‘RAC Approved Garages powered by Autofirst Network’ already has 500 garages on board.

By subscribing, garages will also be offered repair work via the RAC Warranty scheme, as well as repairs referred to them by RAC patrols from breakdowns through the company’s Accredited Repairer scheme. Garages can also benefit from access to a suite of products including a garage management system, technical training, technical hotline, technician recruitment and support from a dedicated account manager. They will be further supported by a listing on the WhoCanFixMyCar.com website, opening even more opportunities for repair work through its national database.

Andy Hamilton, Chief Executive of Euro Car Parts which is supporting the partnership, said: “We believe the brands are an excellent fit and have the potential to become a first choice for consumers wanting the trust of big brands but with local service and convenience.”

RAC Chief Executive Dave Hobday added: “We know from market research that customers really value the friendly, local and reliable service provided by independent garages and have a very high level of trust in the RAC so this is the perfect recipe for garages looking to stand out from the crowd in a busy marketplace.”
