Fix Auto Stevenage receives McLaren approval
Fix Auto Stevenage has become the first Fix Auto UK franchisee to receive the manufacturer approval status for McLaren Automotive, enabling the Hertfordshire repair centre to repair McLarens valued at anything from £150,000 to over £1m.
This is the result of seven months of investment in specific training and equipment to gain the approval status and adds to their existing list of vehicle manufacturer approvals that includes Aston Martin, Jaguar Land Rover and Kia.
Terry Gilbert, owner of Fix Auto Stevenage and chair of the Fix Auto UK’s national leadership team said, ‘Being appointed as an official repairer by McLaren is a fantastic achievement by all involved and is the result of months of hard work by the entire team here.’
David Peake, group aftersales director for the Cambria Group of car dealerships which nominated and sponsored Fix Auto Stevenage’s application said, ‘I have worked with Terry and his team for more than 14 years and during that time we have forged a great working relationship mainly through our Jaguar Land Rover and Aston Martin operations. When we opened a McLaren dealership in the area, I knew Fix Auto Stevenage would be the repairer for us to work with.’
