FIX AUTO UK ADDS MOTORHOME AND HGV SPECIALIST TO ITS NETWORK
Fix Auto UK is delighted to announce the addition of Yorkshire-based D Gawthrope ACR Ltd to the network. The business is one of the country’s leading specialist motorhome repairers and will now be known as Fix Auto Pontefract.
Formed 30 years ago by Dean Gawthrope, the repair centre has a highly regarded reputation for repairing motorhomes, HGVs and coaches alongside its car repair division.
Over the past two years, Dean and his wife Sarah have invested significantly by transforming their one and half acre site into a repair centre packed with state-of-the-art equipment and new facilities. They have built a new annex to house what they believe to be the largest jig in the north of England to accommodate the biggest and heaviest vehicles on our roads.
Neil Reader, Fix Auto UK’s Regional Business Manager who will work closely with the team said: “Having Dean and his team with their motorhomes and caravan repair skills on board cannot be understated. While many of our franchisees undertake motorhome repairs, to have experts like these guys is a fantastic addition to the network. It’s a niche area but one they have made their own.”
Dean said: “We have always strived to be the best we can, no matter what we repair. I believe we are one of the leading repairers in the UK for all motorhomes and commercial vehicles. While our car repair division is well established, we want to raise our game and bring it in line with the rest of the operation, which is one of the reasons why we have joined Fix Auto UK.
He added: “I want to be among the best in the business, being part of the country’s leading network will help us fulfil our ambition.”
Commenting on the latest appointment, Ian Pugh said: “As a network we are constantly striving to provide our insurer clients with the best service possible. Dean and his team undoubtedly bring a unique element to our proposition. As with every franchisee, our relationship works two ways and I am confident that while they have the expertise in repairing commercial vehicles and motorhomes, we will help enhance their car repair operation.”
