Garage Buying Group (GBG) has reached a milestone just 7 weeks after launching. Everything Auto of Dudley, West Midlands became the 100th garage to join the group on Monday 7th June.
Everything Auto undertake a wide range of work including MOT, service, repairs, bodywork and trim repairs as well as offering ‘our place or yours’ mobile air con servicing.
Owner / Director Spencer Crannage discovered GBG via Facebook.
“I saw some great prices on air con refrigerant and visited the site,” said Spencer. “It looks a good idea so I joined.”
Joining Garage Buying Group is free to trade and all garages are welcome. The first hundred members already includes fast-fit tyre specialists, bodyshops and commercial vehicle workshops alongside the majority of independent garage workshops.
“We’re excited to see our concept appealing to a range of garages,” said James Onions, Director of Garage Buying Group. “We know building up the garage membership, the product programme and establishing the brand is going to take some time so it’s great to be able to recognise these milestones as we go.”
GBG anticipate a busy June. Email member communications are ramping up during the month and a concerted effort to engage more suppliers is planned too.
“We’ve identified a first group of suppliers and brands we want to invite to join,” said James. “We’re hopeful of getting the support we need to keep growing the initial momentum.”
