Fix Auto UK expands network

Fix Auto UK has announced the addition of MotorAid to its network.

Operating as Fix Auto Basildon, the repairer commands a three-acre site with a workshop space spanning more than 27,000 sqft. The site currently processes up to 160 vehicles cars and LCVs monthly but has scope to increase that to more than 200.

Owner Steve Abbs said: “We are constantly looking to improve and develop the business. Nearly a year ago we started repairing vehicles for Fix Auto UK and liked the services they provide. We realised early into our relationship there was much more to the network, and we wanted more of it.

“We’ve recognised we needed to future-proof our business, being part of a network, especially one with such a reputation as Fix Auto UK, has to be the future for all repairers and we’re now delighted to be part of it.”

Business partner Simon Croft added: “We like to think we run a fairly good ship, but we are also realists and recognise that, like so many businesses, you can always learn for your peers, the help, support, guidance and processes and amenities in place will, we are sure, further secure the business, but help us to elevate it and ensure we meet our own ambitions.”

Ian Pugh, managing director for Fix Auto UK, said: “These are undoubtedly frenetic times for the industry and we are always striving to strengthen the network but with businesses that sit right for us and, dare I say, we have to be the right fit for them too.  Steve and Simon have built up an enviable reputation over the years and have served us well since the start of 2022, stepping up to be a first tier, fully branded, Fix Auto UK repairer was the natural progression and I am delighted to have them on board.”
