Garage Manager

The Ultimate Vehicle Recovery Management Software

Save time and money with Garage Manager Vehicle Recovery Software

Our Garage Manager software is purpose-built for the vehicle recovery industry, helping to shape the way the industry has operated for nearly 30 years!

Garage Manager allows vehicle recovery clubs and vehicle recovery operators to receive, accept or decline jobs electronically. Jobs can be transmitted onwards to recovery vehicles via our TurboDROID platform which runs on most Android-powered mobile phones and tablets.

It also produces job cards and invoices, monitors the job from initial acceptance through to completion, including storage, repair and salvage. It saves time, money and improves customer service.

The product continues to be upgraded and has now been adopted by vehicle salvage companies to record the collection, storage and disposal of vehicles.
