DIY – Do It Yourself Garage Rental Portal

Business Case
Directory of do-it-yourself garages mainly in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. The ultimate target was to build up an “airbnb” for DIY garages.
A DIY garage in the targeted area is called a shop where you can rent the place and the ramp if needed to fix or tune a car (or motorbike). On top of that you get all the specific tools and inventory as well as professional guidance.
We distinguish between users (DIY garage owners) and end-users (DIY garage customers). The typical end-user is male, 18 to 50ys old, low to middle income, interested in cars and most likely in car tuning.
