I started working with Peugeot vehicles at "Reading Garage" during 1987. At the time this was the only Peugeot dealer in Reading and this is where I served my apprenticeship and was employed for more than twelve years, whilst becoming a Peugeot "Master Technician", gaining IMI accreditation along the way and attending countless training courses at Peugeot's training centre in Coventry.
The Peugeot brand continued to grow in the late '80s. However, Reading garage ceased trading in mid 1999 and I saw it as an ideal opportunity to continue to serve the owners of Peugeot vehicles in the Reading area. A short sharp advertising campaign along with local press coverage ensured that as many Peugeot owners as possible knew what was happening.
I began by starting Autosolutions as a "mobile workshop" whereby cars would be cared for at a customer's home or workplace.
Today I operate the business from the workshop in Newbury and still have more than a few of the original "Reading Garage" customers among the ever growing customer base. Autosolutions is set for further growth in the coming months as I continue to expand into the used car sales area of the market.
