Andy and Karen took over the business of Barnstaple Radiators in 2001, specialising in car radiators & air conditioning. After installing a MOT bay and providing all aspects of garage repairs and servicing, they changed the name of the business to Barnstaple Autocare in 2005, so have been running a garage in Barnstaple ever since.
Andy, who has always been in the Motor Trade, previously worked as an AA man so has many years experience of fixing cars. His wife, Karen, works alongside him, assisting with Customer Service, Administration and Reception duties.
Over the years, they have built up a good customer reputation and were one of the first garages in Barnstaple to become members of the Good Garage Scheme, a garage that their customers can trust. We always aim to provide a personal, approachable service and be a straight talking garage so it’s great to see our customers return time and again.
Many people think that they are required to take their car back to the main dealer to keep their warranty valid, but this isn’t the case. Andy is keen to point out that he is confident that he can provide a more convenient, competitive and friendly service locally. We also have fault finding diagnostic equipment available, for any dashboard warning lights, enabling us to find out what’s at fault and we also have a free loan car if required.
