The Smartdriverclub connected car service has teamed up with car servicing comparison website BookMyGarage to offer drivers the ability to book servicing through their onboard device.

The Smartdriverclub connected solution now includes service booking.

The Smartdriverclub connected solution now includes service booking.

Launched some two years ago to save drivers time and money, the monthly subscription service provides drivers with a plug-in device that goes behind the steering column, providing the ability to carry out fuel and expense tracking, as well as well as mechanical alerts, emergency service crash alerts, theft and breakdown recovery, and reminders for MOTs, taxes and car services.

The partnership with BookMyGarage enables members to also quickly and easily book a garage of their choice, based on criteria such as price, location, reviews and availability, as soon as they are alerted to do so via the Viewpoint Smartdriverclub’s app.

Douglas Rotberg, founder and chief executive officer of BookMyGarage, said: “While most new cars are already connected, Smartdriverclub satisfies the desire of thousands of used-car owners to connect their car.  As the go-to destination for used-car servicing, BookMyGarage is a natural extension to Smartdriverclub’s offering to used-car owners.”
