Four Franchise Partners within Fix Auto UK’s network have cause to celebrate after gaining their Vehicle Manufacturer Authorised repairer statuses for Toyota and Lexus vehicles.

Fix Auto Leicester, Fix Auto Mid Devon, along with its sister site in Newton Abbot, and Fix Auto Slough have all successfully completed the manufacturers’ stringent compliance process. 
In addition, Fix Auto Malvern, Fix Auto Weston-super-Mare, Fix Auto Wigan, Fix Auto Stoke-on-Trent, Fix Auto Sutton-in-Ashfield and Fix Auto Market Drayton who have long held the accreditation as officially Authorised repairers for Toyota, are now able to add the Lexus brand to their existing portfolios. 

Kevin Shaw, Managing Director at Fix Auto Leicester, said: “We’re just so delighted to be able to add both the Toyota and Lexus brands to our existing portfolio. When we developed our new site here in Whetstone prior to joining Fix Auto UK we invested heavily in new equipment and training for our staff so, fortunately for us, the whole process was seamless.”

It was a similar story for Fix Auto Slough. Owner Ranjit Gill commented: “I’ve gone through a complete transition of my business over the last 18 months which has evolved around relocating to a new site and developing a dedicated area for electric vehicle repairs. That significant programme of investment also centred around future proofing the business with the latest equipment. It is that investment which has ensured our audit process to gain Toyota and Lexus Authorised status has been pain-free.

“While I have close relationships with several major car dealerships this is our first Vehicle Manufacturer Authorisation and I am sure it will not be our last as I am now committed to increasing our offering to our customer base.”

Dom Lamb, Operations Director for Fix Auto Mid Devon, said: “While we pride ourselves on repairing every vehicle that passes through our doors to the highest standards possible, we are now working through a strategy whereby we provide our customers with unrivalled and added confidence in what we do. Gaining the official seal of Authorisation from Toyota GB to encompass their vehicles along with Lexus models is the first success in this area for us.”

Darren Bedford, Business Development Manager for Toyota (GB), said: “It was important that we have the best authorised repair network for both brands to support our customers in their time of need. We value the opportunity to continue working with the great partners from Fix Auto UK and we welcome Fix Auto Leicester, Mid Devon, Newton Abbot and Slough meeting our necessary high standards. We look forward to working together in the future.”
