Local mechanic Mark Goodear brought 28 years of working on luxury vehicles with him when he joined Geelong West Automotive a few months ago.
Geelong West Automotive is the city’s independent specialists in Volvo, Peugeot, Renault and Citroen, which Mark has serviced since starting as an apprentice at age 16.
“That’s all I’ve ever known,” the workshops’ new part-owner and manager says.
“Our workshops are tooled up especially to service these luxury European vehicles.”
Mark prides himself on his attention to detail, which is what any luxury car owner would expect.
He joins fellow mechanics Adam Hunter, Gordon Cuthill and Ben Buckle as part owner of the workshop.
The team also includes George Bellingham, who has over 40 years’ experience working with Volvo.
“They’re very dedicated,” he says, “I’ve known them most of my life.
“We all used to work together at another car dealership in Geelong.”
Geelong West Automotive has been extremely busy servicing luxury vehicles, along with carrying out roadworthy inspections, repairs, electronical work and tyres.
“We’ve just put on a full-time apprentice to help keep up with demand,” Mark says.
And in the coming weeks the workshop will undergo renovations to double its capacity.
“These changes will allow us to keep up to date with latest technology and equipment, as well as to better cater for our busy workload.”
Mark and his family love Geelong, and he is a passionate Geelong Cats member.
“I couldn’t imagine a better place to raise a family, work and live,” he says.
