We’re expanding!

New year, new start!  And what better way to begin the year by sharing our news.  Today, Andy signed a new lease for the unit next door which provides a great platform for expansion.

We’ve been steadily trading since January 2013.  After building the business from scratch, taking on an apprentice and juggling a growing family (Andy now has three under three!), our five year anniversary is marked by expanding our facility by taking on the unit next door.

If you’re already a customer then you’ll appreciate additional parking, a clear drive-way down to the premises (it’s always been quite tight, and most customers ask Andy to drive their vehicle out!) and security in the fact that AB Motor Vehicle Services are here to stay.

The team currently consists of owner, Andy and apprentice, David who are based at the garage on a daily basis.  Andy’s dad, Martin is about occasionally to help out with collections and delivery of vehicles and Hannah, Andy’s wife works behind the scenes from home.  David is soon to be semi-qualified having completed almost two years of his apprenticeship, and with the volume of work increasing, there are possibilities of taking on additional staff in the near future.

In the next few weeks the additional unit will have a new ramp installed, the electrics and lighting sorted out and a staff-room put in place.  Once it’s complete we’ll be sharing news so keep your eyes peeled.

If you’re unfamiliar with what we do then you’ll be pleased to hear that we have over 16 years experience in car servicing and repairs and can also arrange your MOT.  Our scope of knowledge is broad and we cover all makes and models as well as offering collection and delivery in the local area.
