Allvaux Motors, The Vauxhall Specialist
I started in the motor trade in 1987, spent five years at Windsor technical college and after that I carried on my vehicle studies at the Vauxhall training centre in Luton. All at the same time as working full time for a Vauxhall main dealer.
After finishing all the courses with Vauxhall, I became a Master Tech and wanted to be more involved in customer service and fault finding. I did this for a year and then worked on warranty faults. All this was good fun but it wasn't the way I wanted to spend my working life. I then left Vauxhall to run a workshop as foreman! This was a great learning curve into another aspect of the motor trade.
After a few years of that job I knew I had to start my own business, the main push was my standards and trying to get others to work in the way I do. Allvaux Motors was then born in 2002.
Since running my own business I have also completed further courses in air conditioning and advanced fault diagnostics, even written a paper for the IMI.
I have customers that travel from Kent and from the Forest of Dean for me to service their cars and have been returning for many years after giving them advice online.
"I believe highly in customer service and value for money! I carry out all my work to a very high standard and at lower prices than a main dealer, but still use original spec parts."
