Where have we come from?
The company was started by director Alan Watts in 2007. Having worked within the motor industry in truck dealerships, fleet haulage operators, independent garages, car dealerships, 24 hour breakdown and recovery Alan picked up not only knowledge and experience repairing almost every make of vehicle but also learnt the positive and negative aspects of each type of garage and how it affected its customers giving him a greater understanding of the best service options he could offer. However having a good business idea didn't mean it was possible to borrow the capital to get the business started.
Determined to get the business off the ground Alan continued his full time job and built things up on a shoe string budget in the evenings and weekends. With no option of a workshop available AW Autotek's mobile service was born which in the beginning was working from his car until the business saved the money to buy its first van. Work was gained through networking, referrals and word of mouth as much of it still is today and many of the early clients have remained loyal all the way through
The business steadily grew to the point that it was no longer a part time business and it became his full time employment. A bigger van was purchased to enable a wider array of services and jobs to be taken on with more tools on board.
We aim to do our best to help the environment, not only keeping engines properly serviced & more fuel efficient but also by getting as much waste as we can recycled.
The next Step
As the mobile service continues to grow it is time to open our first workshop. This will enable us to provide a full workshop service whilst still remaining mobile. Our aim is to keep the convenience for clients which the business has been built on while offering as many new service options as possible.
