Auto Care celebrates 10 years in business
10 years ago, Mark du Preez, a motor mechanic with 25 years’ experience, discovered the perfect location for his workshop behind the Southport Service Station.
It was the best decision he ever made. This was when M & R Auto Care opened its doors.
“I’m very old-school in my ways,” he smiled. “I supervise all the jobs and I am very hands-on, and like people did in the old days, we fix a lot of things,” he added. “Experience is actually not something you can buy,” said Mark.
“Any vehicle that is brought in is inspected, the problem is diagnosed and then clients are given a quotation.
“It is standard procedure for us to do a 35-point check just to ensure there are also no other problems with the vehicle.
“We also realise that client’s need their vehicles and try and get the repairs done as soon as we can. If there are any additional problems, we liaise with the client and advise them accordingly.”
Services offered by M & R Auto Care include mechanical, engine overhauls, gearbox and diff repairs and auto electrical.
“Due to demand, I started a panel-beating unit. I am proud to announce that the panel beating has grown to such an extent that it will soon be relocated to a new location and we will now also be undertaking insurance-related vehicle damages,” said Mark.
“We also offer motorbike, scooter and quad bike repairs and servicing as well as for lawnmowers, brushcutters and generators. Shaun O’Berg is a qualified motorbike and lawnmower mechanic.”
“We offer a free 24-hour breakdown service.”
