The Garage is a television programme following the staff of English Mobile Mechanics in Marbella, Spain. The programme follows the activities of the garage and initially it followed new staff hires as they adjusted to life in Spain whilst coping with their new jobs and their boss, Jock Campbell. As work in southern Spain depends on tourists or villa owners that winter elsewhere the Garage's trade is highly seasonal. Four out of the five new recruits found themselves with insufficient paid work (no customer jobs to book time to) so eventually announced that they were leaving and vacated their positions.
