Marketplace for Car Mechanics (“MCM”) is a website to find the cheapest quote for car repairs, servicing and MOTs in your local area. The site was set up 18 months ago and we have coverage across London with 180 garages signed on to the system. A user can insert their number plate and postcode, the work they require, then the website will retrieve quotes from mechanics in the local area who quote for the work. We operate a business model of payment of a fee by the garage every time they quote for some work, regardless of whether that quote is successful or not.

The business now needs takes taking to the next level, with national expansion and further marketing.

For confidential reasons as we are a trading business we have not disclosed the website address, but it will be disclosed to interested parties.
