Your chosen garage will then contact you directly for a seamless experience – it really is that simple!
MOT and Service Reminder
We’ve all been there – forgetting to MOT or service our car and then panicking when the date suddenly springs on us and we have to find a garage that can squeeze us in. To help you avoid this, the Trust My Garage website offers an MOT and service reminder where you can register to receive an email reminder a month before your MOT or service is due. Sign up here and make forgetting about your MOT or service a thing of the past.

Why Choose a Trust My Garage Member?
Trust My Garage is a collection of Britain’s best local independent garages – all dedicated to the highest standards of skill and personal service. All the garages in Trust My Garage are members of the Independent Garage Association, which is part of the Retail Motor Industry Federation, one of Britain’s oldest motor trade organisations, so you have the peace of mind that your car is in the hands of true professionals who comply with a strict code of practice.
The Trust My Garage code of practice has been approved by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI), but what does this mean for you? It means that you can be reassured that your local Trust My Garage member will always have access to up-to-date technical information, facilities and equipment; meaning you will receive a professional and quality service every time. Plus, you receive extra protection beyond your normal consumer rights such as robust complaints procedures and clear contractual information. Trust My Garage is the only CTSI-backed code for independent garages, so you know that you are protected as a consumer, while receiving work of the highest standards when choosing to visit a member garage.
Garages looking to be Trust My Garage members are required to undergo a comprehensive inspection and audit of their facilities before being awarded the TMG ‘Shield’ of approval. This gives you the assurance that any garage listed on our website will do a professional job for a fair price on your vehicle, all while treating you and your vehicle with respect.
So, what are you waiting for? Book your car in with your local TMG member now at TrustMyGarage.co.uk.
