TootCompare will rebrand as RAC Garage Compare, with the RAC set to invite over 10,000 franchised and independent garages to join the online service.
The comparison website will offer car owners the opportunity to source and book car servicing, repairs and MoTs from participating sites across the UK.
Douglas Rotberg, CEO of The Motorists Organisation, the owner of the TootCompare service said: “We believe this move will prove to be a turning point for service, repair and MoT comparison websites in the UK motor industry thanks to the strength of our underlying technology and the high level of credibility of the RAC brand.”
“We are contacting more than 10,000 garages to invite them to join RAC Garage Compare. We believe that we can provide them with access to significantly many more new customers and drive up workshop utilisation.”
Phil Ryan, RAC’s technical director, said: “The launch of RAC Garage Compare will allow our eight million members and any other motorists to benefit from increased transparency in the MoT and servicing market place.
“We have chosen to work with The Motorists Organisation because we were impressed with their existing TootCompare comparison technology and their commitment to absolute transparency for customers when it comes to pricing and service standards.”
