Roger launched A Garage on Wheels Ltd on the 4th of April 2012, trading as A Garage on Wheels Mobile Mechanic for Bournemouth and surrounding areas.

With many years of experience, spanning almost three decades (his youthful ego does not like the sound of almost three decades), with the last 23 years in the RAC.

At first, he was a Service Patrolman and later promoted to Leading Patrol for the Bournemouth and Salisbury teams, covering Bournemouth, New Forest, Salisbury and surrounding areas.

Redundancy gave Roger the great opportunity to start a business as a Mobile Mechanic covering Bournemouth and surrounding areas as he had done for many years in different capacities.

Before the RAC, Roger Worked at his own family garage as an MOT tester and in general mechanics, where he would repair anything from a combine to a Rolls Royce, from modern motors to classic cars.

In fact, Roger over the years has had a few old classic cars like, Rover 110, Triumph Vitesse, Ford Prefect 107E, to mention just a few.

Being Mobile is key to Roger, as he does not like to be static in a garage.  Being a Mobile Mechanic gives him a new challenge everyday as he meets new customers, in new locations, and faces a diversity of jobs.

Roger is a proud member of The Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI), which means that he is a recognised Motor Industry professional, who is qualified, experienced and committed to ethical conduct as per The Institute of the Motor Industry code of conduct.

A Garage on Wheels Mobile Mechanic brings the garage to you so that you get to keep your car and see you car being worked on there and then.

Meet Roger

Hi, if you made it this far I truly thank you for your patience and attention to detail, sorry but here is some more info.

My interest in playing with all engine things started from an early age, at 8 years old, I used to restore old tractors back in the days of Grey Ferguson's and Field Marshall's, oops showing my age again.

Having a passion for both modern and classic cars, I come from a background that no car should die, so I will repair and maintain any car to include light commercials too.

Convenience and trust are keywords, I come to your location and at a time that suits you, and you get to see and know that your car is being worked on.

I am always happy to inform and explain about the work needed on your car or van, just as happy to fit your own parts or source the parts myself. 

However, please note that if you provide your own parts, we do not warranty the work or the parts.

If you enjoy mechanics or want to see how the problem is fixed, then feel free to stay and observe whilst I am working on your car or van.

I am honest and upfront, so if I encounter a new issue whilst working on your car or van, that may require new parts or extra labour, I promise to update you there and then before any work is carried out on the new problem.  You can rest assured that you will not come back to any hidden extras or surprises.

Ok you have now reached the end, again thank you and please know I am just a phone call away.
