This week we thought we’d take you behind the scenes of life here at Maitland Motors and introduce to you our garage owner and top mechanic, Ross.
What is your background? I’ve been in the motor trade for over 20 years now and starting off with an apprenticeship back in 1999. I graduated from college top of the class winning apprentice of the year, which I’m still really
What do you do at Maitland Motors? I always strive to give my customers the best service possible by proving honest, reliable advice, use my knowledge to repair and maintain cars to a high standard with quality parts and work in
What drives you? Giving my customers the best I can while fighting the poor reputation the trade has. Yes, there are cowboys out there but not all we mechanics are out to rip our customers off. We want customers to leave with a full understanding of what work has been carried out, why it was done and how it helps them. We are always upfront and honest when it comes to price and always keep our customers posted when additional work/parts are needed. We only go ahead with repairs once we’ve had the green light. I have big plans for Maitland Motors and thanks to our brilliant customers and supports have had a great start to life as a business owner over the past 4 years we’ve been open. From a one ramp unit with just me on my own, we’ve grown to a 3 ramped garage and have been able to take on Dale our mechanic and Chrissie (Mrs Maitland Motors) in the office. It’s also great being able to set a good example of hard work and determination to my young sons. I’d love, if they’d be happy to, to pass it all on to them.
Do you have any questions for Ross? Leave them in the comments below and we’ll get back to you asap. We always love hearing from you. Likewise if you’d like to book your car in with Maitland Motors, call the office or drop us an email.
