‘Motor trade marketing in the digital age with Eurorepar Car Service’ will take place at 1pm on Monday, August 8.

Eurorepar believes that garage professionals must pay greater attention to their online presence. It says 46% of drivers use the internet to book their car service, while 50% of people questioned decided not to visit a repair centre due to a lack of information on the company’s website. The company produced a short video to highlight its message.
Nick Taylor, general manager of Eurorepar Car Service UK, said: “The past few years have seen an explosion of e-commerce, with consumers increasingly turning to online channels to research, book and review goods and services. The automotive aftermarket is not immune to these developments, so any garage owner looking to maximise their earning potential cannot afford to neglect their digital skills.
“This is the way the market is heading, and we at Eurorepar Car Service are well placed to guide our network members in the right direction, helping them to remain competitive in a challenging new environment.”
Many car dealers are still “missing out on the full potential of digital retailing” according to a joint report created by Auto Trader, ICDP and the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA).
While those who rapidly accelerated their development of online retailing in response to remote selling stipulations enforced by Government's COVID-19 mitigation measures are reaping the rewards of more efficient sales and positive customer engagement, many have yet to embrace technology, it found.
